More May Randoms Part 2

Whoops. Found a few more May pics on my phone...

Jake opted to sing 1 song at the end of the year school performance. It's all good. I think his sister didn't even do that much in Kindergarten.

We were seriously maniacs...

Somehow in a moment of weakness, we agreed when our friend, Brandon, asked us if we wanted to join his team in a Rugged Maniac race.
We had never done anything like that before and really had no clue what we were in for.

Team Bobby Wayne D Wayne:

Yup. Still had no idea what we were in for (well, speaking for Chad and myself).

I do have to tell you that as scary and intense and hard this was, I am super proud of us for doing this and looking back, it really was a fun morning.

Strawberry Time!

On Saturday, May 7, we went to the Ingram's Farm for some fun, some petting zoo, and some yummy strawberries...

(I have no words.)

We've got a new kitchen, friends!

Breaking news in the new house! The kitchen remodel is finished (well, finished enough to take some pics). Daylight Savings came in handy with that extra hour this weekend. (And I am not kidding.)

For those who didn't see the kitchen when we moved in, it looked very much like this (according to Zillow):

First thing was first...get rid of that upper cabinet:

Next up, our very talented friend and tile professional, Brandon, did the awesome pewter gray subway tile backsplash.

We desperately needed some blinds in that room. As much as we love our new neighbors, it was kinda weird to be so "exposed" while eating dinner.

We did trim paint and wall paint (no pics as that's not that exciting), and then finally, the cabinets.

Holy breakfast table, batman. Cabinets are NO. JOKE.

And finally, the AFTER! We love how it turned out (and seriously, it was like super cheap doing it ourselves despite not having a weekend without work since August). Lowe's was super awesome to work with especially when we had to abort the first cabinet color because it turned out this weird purple color and then had to do two other trials before finding the "right" black.

(And I look at these pictures now and wish I had the photog skills like the Zillow site photographer but you get the general idea that this kitchen looks completely different.)

(I'll tell you what did stay in that kitchen...the teeniest cutest ceiling fan ever.)

May Randoms

Gotta bunch of random May pics for ya...

The cutest nephew ever.

The cutest son ever....and his awe of pretzels at Mellow Mushroom.

Crazy cousins.

Chad painted the Scout and took its top off. (Spoiler alert: This will not be the first or last time its painted.)

Jake did his first research paper.

Allie rocked it in Gypsy.

And our friend, Patrick, graduated from NC School of the Arts Film School and we went and saw the film screenings.  Such a talented group of students!
