Oh my gosh!! I cannot believe it is Monday night already!! It has almost been a week since I last saw you guys! A lot of exciting things have been going on around here just this past week and I have been super busy (and sore) every day – yard work is a killer on the body – but it feels so good to get stuff done! I have been thinking about you a lot and how I need to get my walkout basement post (that I promised) up – and it is coming I promise! – but I realized that I needed a few more photos and so I didn’t want to post it quite yet - but then I didn’t want to leave you hanging either – so I thought I would pop in and say hello!
Oh, and I would have taken the pictures for you, but my sister and her family live in our basement and we found them a nice new fridge for their little home and installed it – but then my hubby left the old one, on the dolly – sitting in front of their doors for a little while and even though you couldn’t see it from the street – it sort of took away from the “WOW” effect I had planned for the post! He moved it this weekend so now I need to finish up and get it posted for you all to see!! And I would have done it this weekend – but if you follow me on instagram or facebook – then you know we had a fun little delivery and have been busy, busy, busy in the backyard!
I also thought about showing you all the changes we made to the outside of our house – and our front yard – but TWO weeks ago my husband dug up the front yard and so we have this lovely blue tarp (killing our grass!) filled with dirt on our lawn and a six foot hole covered with a nice wood board right by my front door – I know, I know! Classy!! – so no pictures there either!
We have been so busy with our yard that I have missed so many fun things lately – Not that it’s and excuse – but a reason nonetheless! I feel like such a schmuck when I say “Oh I am sorry that I missed your wickedly awesome party – but I had yard work (LAME-O!!)” So if I was supposed to show my cute face at something these past few days and did not – I totally love you – I was just hauling and rolling and moving SOD!! But more on that later!
I also went and picked up a ton of fabric for my little boy’s room!! I have already started sewing and it is amazing!! Or at least I think so! I cleared out my daughters room so all she has is her crib and dresser – boring! and puttied all the holes – boring stuff, but I am super excited about their new rooms. I hope they come together like I have planned in my head! I am hoping to paint at the end of this week and next week but we shall see!
When I am not up to my elbows in dirt or scheming over kids rooms – my family has been out playing these past few weeks! We took a trip up to the mountains for a campfire – hit up a few of the local parks – had some picnics – went to the aquarium – have been keeping Blimpie in business – played in our kiddie pool – hit up the 7-11 for Slurpees and have been grilling up a storm! Just fun summer stuff!! We plan to hit up the drive-in too for Madagascar 3! I wanted to take my kids and then my sister took hers so my fire has been fueled even more! Maybe this weekend….
What have you guys been up too? I hope you are all having a great summer so far! Thanks for reading and hopefully the next time you check in you will see our fun walkout basement!!
