carpet removal, a birthday and a recipe

I hope you all had a great weekend. It has been extremely hot here on the east coast and I am so ready for fall. A lot of the home stores have already changed their seasonal decor and if it was not so hot I would buy a bunch of fall scented candles and pretend it was already October but that would make our townhouse even hotter so for now I will just dream.

If you have been reading this blog for awhile now you know that we are in the midst of a complete flooring renovation and I am so excited to say that on Saturday our new hardwood arrived. Dave and his dad went to pick it all up and unloaded it to our second floor so it can acclimate to our house. I am hoping that by next week it will all be installed but right now this is what the second floor looks like and I have a feeling it is only going to get worse as the week progresses.
If you know me at all you know how much this is killing me. I like order and cleanliness and right now there is no such thing. The carpet on the 1st and 3rd floors will hopefully be replaced {with new carpet} in 2 weeks so for now Will, Dave and I are camping out on those two levels and avoiding the second floor at all costs. I am a little excited though because this will be a good excuse to have to eat out since the kitchen floor is being demoed as well :)

On Sunday evening we went over to Dave's parents house to celebrate Auntie's birthday. Will loves her so much and is always giving her smiles.
Kay makes a big meal for all of the kids birthdays and this one did not disappoint. Megan loves Asian cuisine and this is her usual request for her birthday dinner and I look forward to it every year. Everything you see was homemade. I am so spoiled to have a mother in law who is such a great cook.
Speaking of food I have an easy recipe to share with you all. Now this is no Asian feast recipe as seen above but it was something I made for the first time last week for Dave that he loved it and since it was super easy I thought I would share.

Greek Style Turkey Burgers - Click on the recipe title for ingredients and directions {sorry I am being lazy but no time to type it all out}. They were so yummy! {I omitted the olives though because we are not huge fans.}
Will and I are off to Norfolk early tomorrow morning to spend some time with my family. I will be back to blogging by the end of the week :)
