May was full of many ups and downs, but we had some great weather to help us through! We worked on the house and on the yard, started some new projects! Crazy we have been in our house for a year now!!
Here is what our house looked like when we bought it! Crazy..how much work we have put into it in a year!
Check out this before we saw it :

Here is the house- new front yard, roof and a new paint color!
Then into my little salon area....
James spent a ton of time in here- he has learned how to be quite the handy man! We had a friend do the plumbing- and helped put up a false wall! James got to learn how to do molding, and become a pro at painting since I chose the wrong color yellow the first time! Then we had a little leak through the wall- and James had to take the wall down and re-put it back up...but now it is getting there~ So much more open!!We took down the old cabinets and changed them around and got rid of some! And like the new floors- and there is no more door!
Here is another project I made James start!
Before we dug for it and filled it with dirt!
Here is any easy link on how to make it HERE
Now when we haven't been working on the house and when I haven't been couponing we have tried to fit in some fun times!Here are a few pics from our quick trip to Portland with the Klippenstein's!
