Our Trip to London

Steve and I traveled to London in March, and I'm just now getting around to blogging about it! I want to share with all of you, but I also love keeping a little travel diary on the blog so I can always go back and quickly reminisce! You can find our other travels under the "Travel" tab at the top of the page!

This was Steve's second time traveling to London and my first. Steve got a wild hair one day in January and said "let's go to London. Let's just go". I'm a planner and not super spontaneous, so I was a little apprehensive, but he assured me we could pull it off, and by mid-March we were on a flight across the pond! And because Steve travels for work most weeks, and books his own travel, it's like being married to a travel agent! We are also lucky to have retired parents who will watch our kids for extended periods of time. I will NEVER take this for granted - such a blessing! Well, London was everything I wanted it to be and then some. We just had the most fantastic time together exploring, eating, walking miles and miles, pub hopping, laughing, and enjoying each other's company. I can't wait to go back!

Finishing the Basement - Part 1

Well, we all made it to Friday! The sun is shining and Steve and the kids are in Chicago, so I have a feeling it's going to be a wonderful, relaxing weekend for momma! :) Our basement project is in full swing and I wanted to post about the progress so far. Our contractor and his crew are just working like crazy and moving so fast, I'm just amazed. Every night when we go scope it out, so many things are different and new. Here is a little snippet of the bar and where they left off last night...
