Wanna use my toilet?


Well folks...there it is! Our new toilet! You might be wondering why I'm blogging about this, but this toilet is a pretty big deal for me today! You see, this $400 toilet is all mine for the lovely purchase price of $35! You heard right folks...$35!!!

Kris and I are really on the look out for good deals, especially since we're building our home, and my brother Kirby ran across one for us today! He works at Lowes and is normally pretty good about contacting us when something is a sweet deal, but today, he out did himself! Not only was the toilet a great price, but it's ADORABLE! How often can you honestly say you're toilet is adorable? I'll be able to all the time thanks to Kirby!

As long as I'm blabbing about the house I might as well update you on the current status of our major project... Last week Kris dug and poured the footers, which took quite a bit of effort considering the fact that we're building on a rock slab (or so it seemed to Kris!)! This week the mason is hard at work on our block and next week the framer should be coming to get us under roof! Kris plans on pouring the slab for the garage as well and hooking up the temporary electric, water, etc... It's crazy to think that in just a few months we'll have a home! It's a good thing too because our landlord called today and we have to be out by July 31st! ahhhh!

Other than that, life is normal here...working and enjoying the decent weather! Kris has started on a house he and is father are building for a church in Salyersville and I'm working closely with a bank in Jackson. Yep...I'm going to Jackson... (hehehe! For all of you who got my little joke, congrats!) I also got the first of the three checks my former boss has to pay me...and by July, the legal fluff will all be gone and history! Hooray! Also, Hanna is having her little girl, Scout Marie Kappes, on May 13th. We are all anxiously awaiting her arrival!

Oh...and one more thing! I have to tell a cute story about Zachary! I was on the phone with Kourtney today when Zach informed his mother that he wouldn't be doing whatever it was he was supposed to be doing. After putting him in timeout for his little outburst, he started fiddling with some things he shouldn't have been touching. Kourtney told him to sit still and fold his arms. All of the sudden you could hear his little voice saying, "Dear Heavenly Father...." Zach assumed that if he had to fold his arms, it must be time to pray! We both laughed hysterically and had to admit that even when kids can be devils, they are still little angels! Toodles for now!

You just called a toilet adorable. I should laugh, but I can't bring myself to do that to you until you get on some medication.
