The Nadalet Family

Welcome to our family, welcome to our blog. We are going to try and keep this current for those of you reading from afar (hey mom claire!) But we make no promises. And really, people don't want constant blog updates until there are kids. So in about 5 years this blog will really start going.

Please enjoy our sporadic posts on life as a married couple

I Married my Dad

Have you ever heard the old saying "You'll end up marrying someone just like your father."? Well I had, but I was not so convinced... until yesterday. That's when it hit me, Matt does all of those annoying little things that my dad does, and finds hilarious. (Sometimes it's funny, and sometimes it gets old... right mom?)

Case in point: My dad loved to ask us "What band is this?" No matter what's playing. I used to always answer U2, because there was a 50% chance that's who it was... but he caught on. Now I throw in the occasional "Toby Mac" or "Family Force 5" or "Iz (followed by: what Iz, was). And now... Matthew does the same exact thing! I realized it on the way to Disneyland on Saturday. But it really hit me last night. When he asked who it was, I said, I dunno. Red? And he throws up his rock fist and says "No... this should be a clue!" haha It was Skillet. Anyways. We made it home and I was highly doped up on muscle relaxants... I recognized the band and opened my eyes and mouth enough to say "It's Lifehouse." he was shocked, really excited that I knew it, and then laughing because the painkillers were definitely in effect. hahaha

and I'm seeing how I am becoming more and more like Terry. I've been couponing a lot, and we like to tell each other how many swagbucks we won! And I am also starting to garden (I get this from my parents too). So it's not a bad thing to be like your spouse's parents. Just funny. Because you think you found someone different, and then... haha not really!

Love you all, hopefully I can find my camera cord soon!

A Few Updated House Vids

In case any of you are following me on twitter or facebook.... I still haven't found my camera cord. (But I did find the dishwasher detergent and my hairbrush, so that's a good start). So here are a few videos to entertain you. These were filmed tonight while I was trying to get the bed made in the 2nd bedroom. After it was almost made, I realized the dust ruffle was not on the bed...


In process:

Final Product (& tour of the house)

Misc Videos

A few miscellaneous videos (along with the one from Tuesday of Kevin throwing ceiling into the fan)

Kenny's way of testing fan fixtures (or something) is to hang on them. Here is Kevin taking his turn...

For those who wanted to see more of the house, here's a tour on day 5 (Monday)


Here are a few videos from the work on the ceiling. Sorry the videos are a bit shaky. But they're short, so that's worth something, right?

Megan trying to sand. It was really hard!

Matt spraying texture on the ceiling:


A couple of videos from day one, demo....

Kevin, Matt, and Jake (our neighbor on the corner) taking down the weird little fence in the backyard:
