The renovations have begun. OK so its my parents renovations but since they have a billion things going on right now, I get to be the blogger for them. So this post is mostly for my sisters and well other people who remember what my parents house used to look like. I forgot to take pics before so just try to remember the before house. They are renovating the whole house, but this is the beginning.

If you remember there used to be a wall there. now when you walk into it, you are walking into the closet of what used to be Michelle's, Mine and Laurens room. (Not all at the same time) ha ha

This picture is taken from the view of walking out of my parents bedroom. Yep there used to be a door there. Now its just a wall. It is so weird to get used to and I have seen in a bunch of times. ha ha but I love it and its going to look great.

This is the view from inside the new called office. it just leads right into the living room. I can't wait to get the hardwood floors in. They are going to be beautiful. and the glass door that my parents chose is so pretty. the room is going to be great! I am just excited I get to see it all in progress.

This is just kind of a random shot, of the living room now. I thought I would get this one so that I could have a before and after picture, but even now all the furniture is all re-arranged. so ya for those who remember my house, the next time you see it will probably be totally different!!!

what we do on birthdays! ;)

Dan Turned 24 last Thursday and it was a fun one! We actually got to celebrate his birthday through out the weeks with other friends and with my family. It was so nice, my parents took us to dinner to celebrate his birthday. Mike and shay came and it was really fun!. Then Wednesday we celebrated with some friends and that was fun too. then came the birthday and the day was a grand ol' time. Well the night was fun, ha ha. Dan had to be at school at 7:00 am, and had school all day until 5:00. So I didn't get to celebrate but with him during the day, but I did take him doughnuts and a Jamba with some balloons for his birthday Breakfast. The geology department was very grateful for the doughnuts and I was excited that dan was so happy to see me!! After school he came home and the real birthday celebration started.
This is Dans Giant balloon!! When I ordered all the balloons I saw this one and thought it was cute, but was going to be a regular size ballon! oh how wrong was I. I literally had to shove the thing in the back seat of my car. I was suprised it didn't pop or smash the other balloons. He loved it
After we got home and settled we opened his birthday presents.

We then ate some cake. Yup I made it, well with a little help from my mom on the phone, but it was black forest cake! it actually tasted good too! I was really excited and he loved it, that made me feel even better!
We then all headed to Texas Roadhouse for a birthday celebration. Adam and Jason came as each others dates.(Ya they are to lazy!!) :) ha ha but I was glad we just had close friends there!!
Dan and I after eating a huge meal, and Dan in his sexy sweater that I got for him!!! I know he is hot. you don't have to tell me twice!!

It is Pouring down rain right now and I absolutely love it. There is just something about the rain that makes me feel good inside. I love how it makes me want to curl up in a big blanket and watch a movie, or read a book. The rain just makes everything beautiful!! It is so dark and cloudy outside, with thunder and lightening and it just feels like fall. I have been waiting for fall for three weeks now! I'm ready to start wearing sweaters and coats, and today makes me feel like its actually getting there. This is a very random post but it put me in a really good mood so I thought that I would share with others.

Today is a very Special Day! It all started 24 years ago, when a boy named Daniel Scott Lancaster decided to grace us with his presence! Well Let me just say that I am very happy he did because 22 years later, he met me!! YAH! ha ha and now we are here celebrating another birthday!!! I must brag about my hubby because he is the greatest thing that has happened in my life. So here is a little tribute to Daniel Scott Lancaster!
-He first is the most sensitive and caring guy I have ever known. for those of you that know me, I have no patience and really bad anxiety, but he knows how to make that all go away just by holding me! He loves rocks, yes because he is a Geologist! I love that he loves rocks. He is so dedicated to his studies, and I know he will go far with the things he is doing right now. He is so smart, and seems to comprehend school better then anyone I have met. (HE ACTUALLY LIKES SCHOOL) LOL!

He is an experimentor. Dan loves to try anything once. He tried golf, and now he is obsessed! He is definitely improving, and is happy to have a golf course so close to home. I love going out to the golfing range with him, and watch how much he wants to show off to me, but ends up screwing up! it makes me laugh, and love him all that much more!

Next He is very compassionate, and sociable to everyone he meets. Dan is the kinda of guy that is best friends with everyone, even though he just met them. People are just drawn to him and want to be his friend. It sometimes makes me a little jealous of how much people just love him. I wish I could be like that! He cares a lot about his friends and family. He is always concerned about family situations and even my family situations. He wants everyone to be happy, and enjoy life. How could he enjoy life without his two best buds. TEAM B.A.D (Brady, Adam,Dan) Yep they actually called themselves "Team B.A.D"

These boys have been together forever and I love em!! I am sad that Brady is still in Canada, but Happy that Adam is here to be able to celebrate Dan's birthday. They really are best buds. I have never seen a bunch of boys have so much fun together! No matter what it is, Dan loves to make things exciting. He can't just have an ordinary day. He makes going to the grocery store the best part of my day, because I end up laughing until I cry!

Last on this little rampage about Daniel Scott Lancaster, is that loves me and out of all those other gorgeous girls in the world he chose me! I absolutely have no clue how I got so lucky to have this man in my life. I am so excited for the next birthdays to come, and face challenges, and adventures together. He simply is amazing!

My New Favorite thing!

Scrubbing Bubbles Action Scrubber Is my new favorite thing to play with(Well as I am cleaning), anyways this thing is amazing! After a shower or a long day Dan likes to take baths(Can I say that on the blog?) and when there is soap mixed in with that water it gives a nasty ring around the tub. For a while I used Comet and I would scrub and scrub until my arm was dead. I saw these scrubbing bubble things and I thought I would give them a try, It couldn't get any worse, turns out I LOVE IT!!! It makes cleaning the bath tub so much easier!!! Ok so you guys probably think that I am weird but I really do have fun with them. I get all excited when I clean our bathroom, because I will get to use these awesome things. I am now in love with trying new cleaning products, so if anyone has any tricks or something or a cleaning product they love to use. LET ME KNOW!!!

I'm Bored!

Uh I am kinda bored this week. Dan is on his field camp for one of his classes that starts next week, and I am going crazy without him. Its only been one day, and I have been extremely bored without him! Now here is the part where the blog readers get to participate, give me ideas or projects, or something that I can do while Dan is gone! I get home from work, sometimes I go running, but then after that I basically stare at the wall. I CAN ONLY CLEAN MY APARTMENT SO MANY TIMES! ha ha so if anyone has ideas of how I can entertain myself while my hubby is gone, that would be great! Thanks ya'all
