My camera is currently broken. This is rough. Not broken broken....just broken so that the shutter won't open right. And this stupid camera won't work unless the shutter opens right so it keeps telling me "lens error. restart camera". Boo. I don't know how to fix it. I don't know where to take it to fix it. I just want it FIXED!
Soo...even though Kendall and I went on a relaxing campout on the Rim, I have no exciting picture of my own to share....just borrowed ones.

Anyways, I spent every day but one last week and already my Monday of this week helping out my sister in law and my brother with their house.

They bought a fixer upper....and by fixer upper I mean gut out most of the inside, build new walls and a new staircase and flooring and carpeting and everything while still living in it.
I LOVE IT! Even though Kendall and I just bought a house all nice and new this house makes me want to look for hidden treasures in what seems to be a total disaster.

It is going to be so perfect when it is done. I've been painting with them every day and watching the transformation and the floors are put in and the cabinets are glazed.

I love helping them too. It's been fun, even if it's been a workout on my painting arms. I really can't go on enough about how much I love all of this redecorating and remodeling! haha.

Maybe one day, I will find a spot in my house that needs it and will go to town. I currently do have the options of painting, re-arranging, and minor decorations to fill empty spaces. These will have to suffice me until I discover that something is horribly wrong and we just have to rip out something...hehe.

Haha you are so funny! I know you can't wait till I give you the go-ahead on redoing my kitchen like you've been planning! I wish I had your enthusiasm for the project.

Cute story. You'll have to get your camera fixed so you can take lots of photos for the "Big Reveal". Sounds deliciously fun!

I know what you mean! Our house is almost done with the major stuff and now I don't know what we're going to do with our time! Did you see that theknot.com has some kind of home website at the bottom of their page? I haven't checked it out yet tho..
