Follow us as we journal our life and the improvements we're making to our 1928 bungalow home.
let's see, what's been happening at irvington bungalow? well, first we just returned from a long holiday weekend in pensacola, FL. thank God we were able to have our annual visit before stupid BP ruined the beaches. jerks.
shelby enjoyed herself swimming in the bay. and we enjoyed watching her!
and this is chad and i, post beachtime, outside our favorite beachside eatery - Peg Leg Pete's.
that's Peg Leg, of course.
just in time for the weather to turn warm (hot) and for me to be 20 weeks pregos (and have a summer cold), our air conditioner broke. unfortunately, we have to buy a new one. great. i've been promised that this will not compromise the bathroom project. this fan is my favorite heat relief:
our garden decided to grow by leaps and bounds while we were gone:
finally, i did finish removing the wall of wallpaper and glue last week before we left for vacation:
top two pics: left - before removal, right - before glue removal
bottom two pics: left - after glue removal (thanks Mom for helping me!), right - don't tell my doctor that i was on a ladder in 85 degree weather, with no air, removing wall paper.
still waiting on our bathroom floor tile sample. can't wait to tell you NOT to use this tile place.
