Torrential Downpour

The final piece of furniture has arrived. However, it was an adventure trying to get it in the house :) I went last Saturday when Greg was post call to pick up the hutch from the distribution center in Sugarland. I needed his car and then needed him to be home to unload it. As I approached League City I saw very dark clouds and kept praying that it was south of us and the rain would not fall on my new hutch in the uncovered back of the truck. I almost made it. As I exited the freeway the clouds parted and a torrential downpour started. I started freaking out because Greg was still sleeping, I could not move the box, and we had no covered parking! I pulled into our driveway and constructed my amazing plan. I put flattened, used boxes covering the hutch box so they would absorb the rain. Then I cut open trash bags to cover those boxes because I didn't know how much it was going to rain. As I finished my master plan I noticed the rain that had already accumulated in the bed of the truck was seeping up the bottom of the box. So I HAD to wake Greg. I definitely don't like waking my hibernating bear when he is post call. But he was so wonderful and came out immediately and brought the box inside! I felt so bad waking him up early. He thought all my efforts were awesome but silly too.

Long story short, we got the hutch inside! And now I can show you pictures of it all put together!

Here it is...the final major piece of furniture...the hutch!

Notice the bulldog mobile mom bought! 
As well as the bulldog decal on the wall :)

I am so excited to see it all coming together! Now to just hang the bookshelves, curtains and fan. I'll keep you posted!

And, while on our anniversary vacation time Greg & I went to his family lake house. We were driving in to town to grab lunch and saw a road sign, Nolan Rd! We had to stop and take a picture. Then I got to thinking. Lauren had given me a picture frame that we wanted to put a picture of Lane and Nolan together in. So I had my friend Corey touch the picture up and I am so excited with how it came out. Our boys together, even if its just their names. 


  1. Thank you for your remembrance of Lane.

  2. OMG, that is the cutest picture and it brought tears to my eyes to see Lane united with Nolan forever. They will always be buddies and I love you so much for thinking of both of them.

  3. The amazing thought you and Greg have put into decorating your little Nolan's room just shows how very much you already love your precious little boy! The street sign you saw, and then had the presence of mind to stop and photograph, is such a special memento to another little boy who is still loved so very much!
