TUESDAYS AT OUR HOME #160 & FEATURES


WELCOME TO TUESDAYS AT OUR HOME!


I hope you had a good weekend. Ours was spent doing our annual Spring yard cleaning. That was a lot of work!
With all the rain we have had so far this year, the flower bed on front of our home looked like a jungle.



And six hours later and fourteen trash bags of clippings, this is what it looks like. Much better, right?
Although these old bodies are going to hurt the rest of the week. :)
We still have to pressure wash the stone around the flower bed, but after six hours of work we were exhausted so it will have to wait until next weekend. 



 Before we start the party, lets take a look at some of last week features. 

LZ at The Summery Umbrella  built a beautiful potting bench with reclaimed wood. 

 Jolena at While I Linger gave her counter chairs a new look.


 Lori at Dining Delight shared with us her gorgeous outdoor space.


 Debbie at Debbie-Dabble shared her beautiful powder room.


 Christina at Mom's Messy Miracles shared a wonderful recipe for Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream Cupcakes.


 The Super Mommy Club  shared a wonderful collection of Mexican food recipes.



 Emily at Nap Time Creations refashioned a tote bag with vinyl. Love this project!


 Taylor at Sugar & Succulents built a beautiful crate ottoman.

STORM UPDATE/ SMALL FREEZER BROKE & A NEW SIGN


I think it is safe to say, when it rains it pours! :)
First, I want to thank all of you that emailed me or left me a comment to check on us.
For the last two weeks our days have been kind of insane. Since that horrible storm came through our city all we have done is deal with vehicle and home insurance, contractors and one problem after another. 

The bad news is that the storm caused twenty eight thousand dollars of damage to our home and over nine thousand dollars to our vehicles, the worst news are that the collision repair shops are booked solid until September due to the thousands of cars that suffered damage and we won't be able to get any repairs done until then. Meanwhile, we have managed to have two of the windshields repaired so at least, we have transportation. We will have to wait for the other two cars until more glass is available.

We hope to have better luck with the house repairs, but we are not sure of the outcome just yet. All we know is that we are glad Summer and dry weather is on its way, because the roof on our home looks like a block of Swiss cheese, nothing but holes all around.

On a lighter note, just before all this happened, the small freezer we had in the pantry decided to call it quits.
We can't complaint. It served us well over 12 years. 
We were able to find one about the same size at Home Depot that same weekend.

STORM DAMAGE


It has been a bad week for us. Really, really bad!
Last Tuesday night we had a severe hail storm come through our city. You can read about it here.

We had hail larger than the size of baseballs which have caused severe damage to our home and all four of our cars. None of them are drivable. 


There is no words to explain what we are going through.
There is thousands of people with damaged homes and vehicles, insurance companies are flying in adjusters from all over the US to help with all the claims, but as of right now, there is several weeks waiting list for windshield repairs and about three months for the body repair shops.

After calling every shop in town, we have been able to locate a company that had a cancellation and they will be repairing the broken windows in our home before the week is over. All out of pocket, since we can not wait several weeks for claims to go through, specially with more rain coming in the forecast.

We are still waiting to hear from the car insurance adjuster so we can start getting our cars fixed.
As of right now, there isn't a rental car to be had in a fifty mile radius. What a nightmare!
The truth is that all these things will get repaired, even my brand new car :( and we are just thankful nobody got hurt.

 With all this said, I have to tell you it will be a little while before I will back on the blog.
I will try to still host Tuesdays at Our Home link party next week if things come down a bit.
Thank you all for understanding.

SPRING ON THE ENTRANCE TABLE


Happy Friday!
Little by little, I have been refreshing and adding some Spring decor to our home.

Our weather is already very warm, mostly in the 80's and that is giving me the initiative to change things around the house. Our entrance table has not "suffered" any changes for a long while now, so it was time to give it a little update.

SPRING COLORS IN THE FAMILY ROOM


Hello everyone. I hope you are having a great week.
It has been a bit busy for me, but finally getting ahead decorating our home for Spring.

I always work first on our living areas, so the family room and kitchen were the first rooms I changed.
