It’s Tool Time

Hello friends from Friday Follow! Happy Friday All! We are taking on a home improvement project this weekend… Well… my husband has graciously already begun!

Laminate Hardwood Floors

Yep. We are not very “handy man” or “handy woman”-ish, but we are sure trying! Our main level had okay carpet and linoleum floors in the kitchen and we just LOVE the look of hardwood. So began the dream… and I couldn’t be more excited for the final product…

I think my cute, hardworking husband may be more excited than me though, poor guy! I also need to shout out to Max… You are the man! Thanks for helping us out. We really, really appreciate it!
This weekend our days will be filled with this and then of course…

MOTHERS DAY!

I love my two mama’s very much!! Here they are helping us paint, when we first got the house!! Love this picture… they are so sweet and always helpful :)

Enjoy your weekend! I know we will too, once this process is over and my house no longer looks like this…

Wow! Nice kitchen!
Hey, when we had a friend from church put in our not-wood hardwood lookin' stuff, the fridge and oven/stove were in the dining room...cramped. Ha!
Can't wait to see it in the end:)

Fabulous! That is what we have in our kitchen and down the halls. Much easier to deal with than carpet. I wish it was in every room! Have fun. We are up to our eye balls in home improv. so, I feel for you. Exciting, but tiring at the end of the day.

Happy Friday Follow!
