5: Change of Plans

So all I can say right now is that it is not going to work out for us to build apartments in the school. We came up with a different plan and while I'm just as excited if not more so, I am not quite sure how to explain it just yet. With that, I'll leave you hanging from the edge of your seat...


4: A Star is Born

On Saturday 1.15.11 at 11:55pm we welcomed Diesel Christian Rudolph into the world.
Weighing in at 8lbs 11oz. and 19" long. He's a chubby little cutie :)

The labor was difficult and we ended up having to go C-section. Not fun.
Thank God we all are ok. Stefan and I already decided we are done now. Our family is complete.
Here he is at a week old today.
He's got the cutest foofie toes ever! I can't believe how much I love him...


3: We Bought a School

Yup. That's right. A school.
And let me tell you, it needs a lot of TLC. ALOT.
But that's ok cuz we have a plan- in fact, we have a 10 year plan.
Presently, we are waiting on a part for our snowblower. Here in lovely WI we have about 3 feet of snow and we can't get in lol Once we do snow blow our way in we're going to empty out our storage unit (what's the point of that when we have a school right?!) Then we want to start building apartments, first of which would be for ourselves.
Before we can start building though we have to get the building re-zoned for Special Use. That's going to cost us $375 and we are hoping like crazy that we can do that by next month. The Village Hall only meets once a month, so we have til about the second week of February to turn in our application- pray for us that it happens!
In the meantime we are looking into getting a loan to pay off the in-laws (that's who we bought the school from via Contract for Deed) and hopefully will have some left over to start remodeling. Still have a lot of research to do in that department. We are also working on our Business Plan- this could help us with the re-zoning application and the loan. Again, need to do a lot more research!
We have collected quite a few items for our apartment though! All of which have been FREE! Like this lovely burnt orange carpet (I love it!) It's just big enough for one of the three bedrooms. And totally retro hehe We also have gottan a brand new sink for the bathroom, complete with a cabinet to drop it in. And a stainless steel double sided kitchen sink with a working garbage disposal. Yeah it's not much but it's a start and I am so excited!


2: xoxo Johnny

just watched Benny and Joon last night and oh my god hilarious!
i swear, the more i see Johnny Depp, the more i am conviced that he is a genious. and i like to think that if my husband where an actor he would totally be like Johnny.
the man can do anything! he's unstoppable. the versatility with which he can play one character from the next~ the pure and utter dedication to the role.. he brings the characters to life.
i just don't know what to say except that i love you Johnny. my heart secretly belongs to you.
other favorites of mine are: edward scissorhands, sweeney todd, pirates of the caribbean, blow, sleepy hollow... and i was just on google and saw that there are sooo many other movies that he's been in... OMG... and what kind of fan would i be if i didn't see them all?! lol
ps. i am so ready to have this baby!!!
