A Very Quick Monday Daybook

Around the House: 

The move. Two weeks from today, we’ll be closing on our new house, and I. Am. STOKED!  And its crazy around here.  We’ve been making some serious progress around here, packing, having the outside landscaping cleaned up (trees cleaned up by a friend of the Hubs and we called in some outside help to clean up the flower beds and mulch everything), and painting, painting, painting.  Yesterday, The Hubs leaned out a few upstairs windows to paint shutters, and our “curb appeal” is getting better little by little.

We also took down the playset (something about missing boards and exposed screws just doesn’t say “child-friendly play” to me).  I think its safe to say, demolition is fun.

**Speaking of painting, I still have a ton more to do.  Like, the entire downstairs.  At least, once I get going I get on a roll, but its still challenging with a baby who likes to be held.

The Kids:

And speaking of babies who like to be held– look at this kid!


Two months on Wednesday.  Yikes.  He just started smiling for real yesterday, and I love to sit in front of him and beg for smiles.  He doesn’t disappoint. 🙂

Alex has expanded his BSA membership and started Sea Scouts.  Why the sudden interest?  Two words:  underwater robotics.  Our ship (think “troop”) just started the program, and Alex cam home from his first meeting as the leader on his team.  He’s so excited, and I think it will be great for him.

From the kitchen: 

Besides a simple meal plan that revolves around two pans, a  knife, and one spoon?  Not much.  How about a peek at my “pinspiration” for the next kitchen?

From: Dear Lilly the Blog

The layout of this kitchen is pretty much exactly like our new one, except the stove is off to the right, not on the island, the glass doors are a bay window and that wall on the left will be the entrance to our family room.  Basically, this house hasn’t been updated since the day it was built, though its in great shape.  While we’re not planning major renovations anytime soon, I figure a little paint will take us far.  We’ll paint the cabinets and walls, and do something about the counter tops (and the very first thing to go in the house will be the florescent light over the island).  But this gives you an idea of what we’ll be doing.  Something tells me this blog will be turning into a DIY house blog…..

Well, off to keep cleaning and packing feeding my peoples. Aaaand, it sounds like a diaper change is in order.  Have a great day!
