ABC's Extreme Home Makeover

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

ABC Extreme Home Makeover is in Virginia Beach this week, it's actually right around the corner from my office (less than 1/2 mile), going to go by there today at lunchtime to check out the progress and take some pics. I thought to myself, how nice to have our community featured on national tv and how wonderful that a local deserving family was getting what they needed.

My daughter told me that one of the girl's in the family that is getting the new house goes to her high school. Then......

Hubby came home from work on Friday and said his company was helping with the plumbing work at the homemakeover house. I was so excited. My DH worked at the house last night all night installating water lines, this was after he had already worked a full 8 hours during the day - he put in 7 more hours after that for the home makeover house. So happy he had the opportunity to participate in something so wonderful. He's such a sweet man and always gives to others. My hero. Good job hubby for putting your personal touch on a wonderful cause, no contribution is too small. You make us proud, as always.

So since he worked there last night, he's invited to the "move that bus" ceremony on Saturday - WOW, how excited I am for him. He was thinking of me last night while he was working and brought me a tee-shirt home, always thinking of others instead of himself, again... My hero !!!!

I would have never thought that having the TV show in our area would personally touch our lives, how cool is that? Be sure to watch it on tv, I think it airs Feb. 13th, but not totally sure of that date.

    That is awesome. I always thought it would be neat to be involved in that show in some way. I bet your husband feels really good about himself for being a part of helping them.

    i bet he is draggin his b-hind on the ground today, lol. Our friends down the street were nominated for the new build and I was hoping that they would get it. They could use a new house and deserve it as well. not taking away from the people that won, sounds like they deserve it as well. Glad to see some national recognition going on in this area.

    Thats awsome. They did a house about an hour from my house a little over a year ago. My uncle worked for the Home Builders in charge. I got to go over a few times and view the house. It was over the summer and about 90 out and I felt so sorry for all the workers. We got invited to the "move the bus" to and it was awsome. Good for your hubby and helping out a family.
