laughed so hard

this blog made me seriously laugh my head off!
i laughed so hard i cried and then couldn't wait to
share it with my husband!!

 do you ever do that...find/hear/see something funny and  can't wait to tell your husband?
if he laughs super hard do you feel really proud of yourself?
well, if you know my husband...he laughs (he has a cute laugh) at almost everything.
(he also makes me feel pretty darn funny.)

ok, so make my this blog and let me know what you think!!

office "face lift"

my husband and i bought our dental practice
3 years ago and could not wait to remodel!!
the office was seriously outdated and was in
need of some TLC.
the downside is we don't own our building, and
we didn't want to drop a lot $$ to remodel.
so, to save some money and still change the office look,
we did what you call a
"face lift".

here are the before pics.

we are installing laminate wood flooring
in the exam rooms.

we are getting new pictures and frames.
(i'm thinking aluminum frames.)

were covering the couch and getting new chairs.
(the "grecian" floor lamp is going...bye, bye.)

we are changing the wall paper and counter tops.

unfortunately were stuck with purplish cabinets.
it's ok though...we are gonna make it work!

stay tuned!

am i alone?!

does your tree look like

(see the chair on top of the armoire...the 19 month old climbs on EVERYTHING!)

i know....sooo bad. the star is barely holding on and
the tree leans to the right a little.

do your kids hang 5 ornaments off of one pathetic branch?

do your kids rearrange your ornaments?

does your 19 month old chicken pull the lights off and unplug them
allllllllll day long?

have your kids lost all the little hooks to your ornaments?
do they get caught in your vacuum?
do you store those ornaments on the top off the tree?
(in hopes that you'll eventually re hook them.)

well, if you don't have any of these problems...
your lucky.

but, i will say there is nothing like a family tree.
i love the unmatched ornaments.
each one has a memory, and
the kids have some of their very own.

someday i'll have a perfect tree.
but, that might make me a little sad.
because someday i wont have all these
chickens to ruin it!
(they will have their own little chickens ruining theirs!)

on a side note
here are some of my favorite trees


amazing, right??
