Emily and CobNew boat - Hunter 30 Sailboat

We Got a Boat…and Another Thing

I promised an update on our new sailboat that I didn’t get to last time, so here it is!

We’ll be doing updates to the boat too, so stay tuned for that.

OK onto part two.  The “another thing”….

Nick & Emily Engagement

We’re ENGAGED!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Cobalt learned a new trick and came running in at just the right moment with the ring 🙂  The only thing is, now Cobalt thinks he is marrying me.  But that’s OK.  We are both so excited and can’t wait to get married!!!  In a word, I am HAPPY.  So, so happy.

I’m excited to be able to share the planning our wedding with lots of DIY and lots of love.

Kitchen Renovation Phase 2

Kitchen Kitchen Ya Ya Da Da

Hey, hey, heeeey.  So, a lot has been going on this summer, but we are finally entering into a couple weeks of normalcy.  Perfect time to give a kitchen update!  This is the phase where we really saw what the overall layout of the kitchen come to life.  Let’s get visual shall we?  More pictures, less words.  Nobody has any time for that.

So here we go clockwise around the room.

Anyone have any time left for an update on what’s been going on lately?  Don’t worry we’ll stick with the more pics less words thing.

Mom and dad came to visit right after the last time I posted…

Nick also opened his presents which he should have known were for Cobalt

The next weekend we went up to Rochester, NY for the actual 4th of July with my family.  Cobalt helped us get there.

The last picture was the trip home where Emily had to pee and Nick made her go at South of the Border.  Cobalt was not happy.

I think the dogs had the best time of anyone.  Mabel went fetching in the water for the first time…

And Cobalt stole bread from the coy fish, some of which were bigger than he is.  We’ll go ahead and call that your Complimentary Cobalt of the Day….
