Firstly, let me show you a picture of the weeds in front of our house.

Jurassic Weeds!

Ha! Ridiculous, isn’t it? Both myself and Tyler have been working as many hours as humanly possible (and sometimes not humanly possible) to save money for all the things, and our yard has suffered greatly because of it. And don’t even get me started on the garden! My vegetables have been in a Darwin experiment of epic proportions; just how many vegetables can grow when their roots are fighting for water from the grass and weed “cover crop.” (Funnily enough, except the potatoes. The weeds and grass don’t seem to grow around the potatoes.)

Some more has happened, and since band camp is fast approaching, I thought I better share some photos while I still had a head attached to my shoulders. Enjoy the bits and pieces of the upstairs coming together.

The very expensive light switches that allow all lights to be dimmed-this is super great for me, bc I do not like a lot of non-natural light.

One fan is up, but this won't be the final light fixture on the fan-it is on back order-so these lights are the default package option.

The lighting upstairs in the bedroom is done by these guys-they have a little copper ring around them.

Of course, we needed a light fixture exactly like this one-it was one of the few appropriate to our house's age.

Here's the waterproofing stuff in the upstairs bathroom shower. The caulking has to sit with each step before it is tiled.

Isn't this door beautiful??? I love yellow and T isn't a huge fan of the color, so we decided upon periwinkle for the upstairs bathroom. I walked into the house one day and he had gone ahead and painted it YELLOW!!! Now that's love, what a romantic!
