Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Has it really been almost three weeks since you've seen me here? Wow! At least I had a good excuse! We are slowly finding our footing and figuring out what our new normal is.

Monday was a special day as it was Haven's half-birthday. We celebrate those in this family! It required a trip to Chick-fil-A, a stop at the dollar store to spend her money and then we went to see all the goings on just a few minutes from our house where Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has taken over. Marisa invited us to park in their driveway and then we just had a short walk to the house site. We had only been there for a few minutes when we were spotted by Marisa's husband, Brian. Brian has been helping out with the house and was filling us in on some info. He asked us if we wanted to get into the VIP seating area. Um, yes! Not only was it shady, they had refreshments, chairs and a wonderful view of the action. It was amazing to see how quickly they are getting things accomplished and we were only there for a short time.

Haven was a big fan of the free refreshments!

See, I really was there!

This was such a fun way to spend the afternoon and we are so excited for this family!
