|Group Picture outside!|
|Upstairs inside the Barn|
|Inside one of the horse stalls : )|
|I told her if she kept that sassy face up, I'd use these pictures. So..I told you so, Sissy!|
|Pretty. : ) She got her hair highlighted on Monday. A big girl first. *Tear*|
|Happy now that pictures are all done! And she got the sweetest coke float Friend necklace from Ashley! Love her and her sisters!! : )|
I'm making slow progress on the house. I'm happy with it, and it is starting to feel like home. Thank Goodness! : ) We have a lawn! And landscaping now after several shopping trips to local nurseries, deliveries, and lots and lots and lots of plants. The first three days were a total of 89 plants and trees. Talk about a lot of dirt-digging.
The pool is all filled and sparkly. The fence is finally up! (and the trampoline, hooray!) We are waiting on the city to come and do our final inspection for the pool, so we can take down the permit and signs out front. I think that's our last hurdle. Well..we need to get our seasonal meter hooked up for the irrigation so they can make sure it all works..but that'll be after our last hard freeze. Which could be a while! We just had another 2" of snow yesterday!! Good grief. We have THE weirdest weather. Especially for the South.
|We went with a four foot fence, and iron. Ches wanted to see the (scrubby) trees and the view behind us. Clay got a gate to walk over to the creek way back behind us. He is keeping it busy!|
I have been working on the drapes in the dining room. I think I showed you my fabric a long time ago. (December, maybe?) I finally have three of them hanging up. I then jumped to another little project..plates! I have been really wanting some plates to hang in there. I thought the navy would just sing with some white or blue and white plates. I have been scouring flea markets and even Craigslist! (and can I say that I'm seeing navy EVERYwhere now? Magazines, catalogs, and online! Just got my Traditional Home in the mail yesterday..and yep, you guessed, navy blue!)
|This is the layout I decided on..I still have four more to hang!|
|The white collection : )|
And I finally got that beautiful gray rug out of its packaging. It's open, in place, and I really love it. I feel like it's finally starting to come together. I also got a call yesterday, and the furniture I ordered is on a truck headed this way. (Yippee!!) It'll be delivered on Wednesday morning. I hope I'm all ready. I need to move some stuff out of the way..and decide where things will go! Green chairs upstairs! Upstairs chairs gone! Kitchen table-find a new spot! Kitchen Chairs-need a new home! Etc.!)
Did I tell you my barstools finally came too?! I *love* them!! But a little too much. They have white slipcovers..and I don't really want anyone to sit in them. Except I did once..but I was very careful..and didn't eat. (Tiny problem for my roudy fam of six. Maybe I just need a break-in period.) (As of 3/17, Ethan has now christened them. With fruit punch.)
Oh..and I should mention that the Apple iPhone 5S is super breakable. I got a new one last week (thank goodness I bought the insurance!). And..Friday the new one shattered. I know..Suck City. I called them all weepy again. And/But..get this. First, I can have it replaced four times in my two year agreement (yay!). Second. I can't open a new claim until they receive the phone I returned via Fed Ex and close the last claim. So..I'm razor slicing my finger. Again. I even added *fancy* scotch tape over the broken glass so I don't cut my finger..it seems to be a sucker for shards. I tell you, I'm stylin' with my tape and chippy case.
And I DiD already order a new case (so this might not happen again). I know this cutesy one I have obviously isn't doing the trick. I ordered the new one from Lipstick Shades, which is where I got the last good monogrammed Otter Box. And that old iPhone 4 is still kickin'. No shatters or anything. Here is my new design:
|I know, cute, right?! It's sweet, Southern, and ready for SUMMER!!!|
|Just cause you might want to see what I really like for my entryway..but it's still too much for this piece (IMHO). And I'm not sure I like the hanging down wood in the middle. I'd really like to be able to put a little bench/stool underneath.|
|..because no post is complete without my littlest handsomest man!|
Have a great weekend, hugs!
