A little update on what's been going on with us

Happy Friday!  A lot has been going on with us, so I just wanted to do a little update.

1. The most exciting thing for our family was that we bought a house.  While Jason was home on his 2 week break we went looking at houses (6 of them).  After seeing all the houses we narrowed them down to 2.  We picked the one that would be best for our family and went back to look at it one more time before making an offer.  We did one last walk through and talked before we decided to go put an offer in.  This whole process went really easy for us.  We made an offer they countered, we countered back and they countered and we then accepted there last counter.  We are set to close and get our keys on June 18th.  It's so exciting and we cant wait to start doing some things to the house to make it ours.  The plan before we move in is to redo the floors in the kitchen with wood tile and paint.  The house is a 3bd 2ba 4 car garage on 2 acres(2 car garage attached to the house and a separate 2 car garage next to the house)  Eventually we are going to turn the garage attached to the house into a bedroom and playroom.  The kitchen is outdated so we plan to update it soon, we are going to paint the cabinets and put granite countertops in and a backsplash and hardware. We have so many plans and I cant wait to show you guys everything that we do.  I cant wait to paint and decorate the girls rooms.

2. Miss Kendall is becoming quite the model.  It started when we did a feature and giveaway featuring Ryder Rhenn and Nicole asked if she could use a picture of Kendall on her website, how cool right!?!  Then on instagram I entered her a search for a brand ambassador for a baby moccasin company and she was 1 of 6 chosen to model and receive free moccs in exchange for pictures and being on there website.  Check out if your interested in getting super cute moccs for your little one.  And lastly we were contacted by Shelby Chic, she wanted Kendall to model her headbands.  She makes the cutest headbands so I couldn't say no.  She sends Kendall headbands and I take pictures and she puts Kendall on her website, IG and facebook.  This whole thing has been really cool and exciting!
3.  As of Wednesday I am 7 weeks post breast augmentation.  In the beginning the recovery process was hard.  I had the procedure done through my arm pits.  I had a hard time lifting my arms up, it felt like my tendons were gonna rip and it hurt like hell.  After 3 weeks I was feeling defeated and like I wanted to give up cause it didn't seem like I was making a lot of progress.  But I stuck with my arm exercises and it got a lot easier.  After a month things were way better and my arm motion was getting way better.  I was going in for weekly visits and now I'm going in for monthly visits.  I am loving the way that they turned out, I love that they look natural and they aren't to big and I just love the fact that I actually have something there.
