A collage of stuff in my life

I know it's been awhile but I've been busy and too dang lazy to blog! So here is what's been going on.

I got in the mood to reupholster my dining room chairs...mind you I have 8 so we only got 5 done but here are some before and after shots.

I also scored 2 chairs at the flea market for $6 that I will be doing!

Mr.Clean has been working 3 jobs while being laid off so I am glad that he starts back up on Monday and only has to work 2 for now....did I mention how much I love this man???? He is so great and I'm glad God gave him to me!

Next on my list...My nephew Samuel turned 1 on St. Patrick's Day! He is so adorable and I can't believe that I helped hold a leg when he was born. I know that was probably too graphic for some of you but really I only held it for 20 seconds because that's all it took to push him out. I know...why can't I deliver that fast too???

Well...we had the awesome privilege to hang with the Rudas on Saturday night. They are a hoot and a holler! We went out to eat and then "played" some bowling. I scored a 104...which by the way is my highest ever!!!

Loved by Him!

I have so much to tell you that I'm gonna try to keep this short and sweet so I don't lose you! God has been doing so much in the Klinger family...allow me to show you how faithful He is!

1. Mr. Clean was laid off....He was offered 2 jobs while being laid off and he can leave them when works starts back up.

2. Bills were piling up... Home Depot is paid off and that was our biggest bill. As well as we are finally getting caught up!

3. We needed a bigger vehicle... we are picking up a minivan today after Mr. Clean gets off of work! Get had leather and a dvd player AND we less than our car payment!

4. Mr. Clean and I needed new phones since our work some of the time. They are getting old and beat up. I checked the website Wirefly and they had the best prices for cell phones. We still didn't want to pay anything so we waited and prayed that the price would go down. Yesterday they were running a special for FREE phones with FREE shipping. So we got 2 Samsung Eternity touch phones for FREE!

Ok so I have this amazing friend who is mega talented! She just opened a shop on Etsy so why don't you swing on over there and check her out!

Remodeling Our Basement

Ok so Mr. Clean and I have been in proud home owners for almost 5 years now. In July it will be 5 years. We have been remodeling our basement for 3 years now. To give my husband the benefit of the doubt...he did build a 2 car garage during that time as well.

To give you a better idea of how much we need this to be done... we have a 2 bedroom 1 bath house. There are 2 adults and little ones. We need more room. Don't get me wrong sharing my bedroom with NoNo was great at first but now I need my privacy!

Do Mr. Clean is making our master bedroom down there with 2 walk in closet and a bathroom. As well as a family/theater room, kids play area and laundry room with a craft area for me and the kiddos.

So here are some pics of our work in progress...

Before...Not really a before since we studded out the entire thing ourselves but we aren't good at before shots...we never remember!


During... This is the kids area

During...this is my future bathroom

Because I don't have much to say today!
