are #6 and lightening

good news, i found out i passed my architecture exam #6, which means only 1 left!  so much pressure!!   

i studied more for the structures exam than i have the others, and while i didn't leave the exam feeling confident, i wasn't sure what else i could have done to prepare.  glad that one is over with!


i'm taking a short break from studying but plan to start studying for the last test soon.  meanwhile, i've been loving the fall weather, we've been taking the dogs on long walks and sleeping with the windows open (my favorite!).  the photo above is taken from our deck a few nights ago.

one other random update - check out the crack in this tree that is in front of our house!  we had a pretty bad storm the other night, and at one point heard a very loud snap sound - the tree was struck by lightening.  since it was pouring, we couldn't really see how bad the damage was (although all of the neighbors moved their cars away from the tree just to be safe).  the next morning we discovered that the lightening had caused a split in the entire length of the trunk!  there were giant splinters of tree trunk all over the street and in the yards.  we think the tree might actually survive because it's not very deep, but are waiting on the city to come out to inspect it.  i'm glad that no one was hurt!


still here!

sorry for the silence on the blog lately...  no real reason other than we are taking a break from home projects after spending all of our money on the kitchen.  although, i was thinking of doing a source list for the kitchen, let me know if that is something that you'd be interested in.  or if there are any other details that you would like more information on.  in my excitement to post the "after" photos, i know that i missed a few steps.  we've also added the kickplates and a shelf to the kitchen, i should probably take new photos...

other than that, we've been playing catch up on everything else in life that got put on hold while working on the kitchen. rugby season started back up for mike, and i just took my 6th architectural registration exam (structures, still waiting on results). the weather in stl is finally starting to cool off, it's been nice to be able to do things outside the last couple of weekends. 
anyway, hope to be back to the projects (and blogging) soon, just wanted to stop by and say "hi"
