Nesting

So Rusty and I did our nesting a while ago. We think were pretty cool. It took two whole days to put it all in with a lot of frustration (we were thinking it would take a few hours). Was it worth it...of course! Its cleaner, brighter, and makes the place look more spacious. Love it! Here is a before kitchen floor.


Nasty! That thing never looked clean even after sweeping and moping.

Day one was the most frustrating because we were going no where fast...until...Jordan came to the rescue. He helped someone put one in before and gave us some good tips.


Long day.

It got tricky on day two when we had to get pieces to fit the weird corners and such. Rusty was a master with the saw.


Well the final product turned out fab. And Hanalei is gonna love it!

It looks awesome. And you are right that old lenolium did look like it was ready for the dump. Does she have her own nursery? Have you decorated that yet? I think it is time for another belly shot too!!!!

Lindsey and Jordan said...

um I'm laughing at Jennifers questions, I'm guessing she hasn't seen your place :) Okay so two things, first of all that Jordan boy is pretty darn cute, second of all, is that Rusty chillen in just a towel? I got so much grief for posting Jordan dancing to the wii without a shirt on so I have to do the same and say no shirt and no pants! Come on now!

great job - nothing like a new floor - I bet it is nice to know what has been on it (and in it) :)

Ben and Summer said...

WOW. Wow, wow, wow! Great job, that's impressive. Is that Pergo or real hardwood? We have Pergo in our kitchen and it's WONDERFUL because dirt doesn't show up nearly as much, it's super easy to clean, and it's pretty! Yay for baby H's inspiration!

It's the fake stuff. We are not that rich. Even if we were rich, we are still cheap...it's a rental.

Belly picture will be coming soon.

Jennifer-There is no nursery. The whole house will be her nursery. We were thinking about sticking her on the porch...kidding.

Lindsey-Rusty has no shame. I think people were really offended by the dancing Jordan was doing...the fact that he was dancing shirtless was just fuel on the fire.

I really like the new floor. It makes me want to redo our flooring. By the way, the comments on this posting are hilarious!

Peter and Jen Bell said...

Can you come do our house, we need some work done and I'm dreading it. Hey, where in Hawaii do you live? I'm coming out in June.

Melanie said...

Hey! I'm so excited I found you guys! Congrats on the baby on the way! That's so exciting! How much longer do you have to go?? We're expecting a boy at the end of May, but we're just trying to make it through mid April right now! He's just to excited to enter this world!
Miss you!

Tiffany J said...

HEY GUYS! I found you on Q and Kirsten's blogs! I thought I would add you to mine and say HI! LOVE the floor by the way!

I need you to tell me what Hanalei stands for. One of our cousins just had a baby and she's from the big island and named her daughter Hanalei...is there a special meaning? Just curious to see what it means in Hawaiian...it's so pretty!

The Haynies said...

I like the pergo floor, it looks really nice. One day your kido will be crawling around licking the floor and you will be thankful you put in the hard work to remove the lino. Seriously, kids do the strangest things. Rusty looks like a good handy man! We miss you guys! Take care

I love the new floor! I think that Hanalei will love it. Corey wouldn't be able to resist playing shuffleboard with the baby on the nice new floor, haha!

Kristina said...

Hey, are you ready to have a baby yet? I want to see your belly. Shoot you only have like 3 weeks left. Lucky!

Built Ford Tough said...

Oh ya, miss you. I keep telling Lance that my life would be so much better if I could hang out with Lala when I wanted. Really, this whole you living in Hawaii thing really doesn't work for me.... you should consider moving back to the mainland :)
