This is Ellie’s dream house. It is a cookie. Everyone in her 2nd grade class was supposed to draw a picture of their dream house. Now you would think with all of the “new house” talk that has been going on around here that her dream house would have included Nantucket elements along with rock, peaked roofs, white moldings, and a porch. But nope. That would be her mom’s dream house. Ellie’s dream house is a cookie. Because she likes cookies and she thinks it would be cool to eat her house.
Such sweet comments from my last post! I know I’m sounding like a broken record…thank you for your comments…you’re all the best… but seriously, thank you for your comments…you’re all the best! Your kind words really do mean so much to me and I am completely convinced that I have the best blog friends out there. I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to respond to a lot of you today. We spent the last four days in Palm Springs and drove home today. I’m exhausted! It wasn’t a vacation, it was a family trip. And let me tell you – there is a big difference between the two! A vacation includes some relaxing and with my two year old along for the ride, there wasn’t much of that going on. But we did have a great time. We somehow always do, despite the fact that a great amount of craziness accompanies traveling with three little ones!
Sharing a quick picture of Ellie’s dream house today…
I love 2nd grade. And I especially love my 2nd grader.
What was I thinking spending a fortune on our architect when I could have just hired my daughter!?
Speaking of our “new house” we submitted our plans into the city this week!! YEA! I’m excited.
It will most likely be three months before they are approved. The fees you have to pay and the hoops you have to jump through to build in California are just plain crazy! This state definitely plays by its own rules. But I am SO excited about how my house is turning out! It’s just so very… Erin. :) It has been so fun seeing all of the elements and styles I love come together to make my home. We are meeting with our builder tomorrow to discuss next steps. He has been getting bids and also wants to give us an estimate of what my “dream home” is going to cost us to build. I’m thinking tomorrow will either be a very good day or a very bad day for my husband. So cross your fingers for me that we get good news and Kenny doesn’t blow! ;) We are also getting ready to meet with our cabinet guy to start designing the kitchen! BRING. IT. ON. I have been dreaming about this kitchen for years now. You know. The one I’m going to organize and decorate and bask in its glory while I cook in it as little as possible. Of course, with my Ellie around, we will be baking plenty of cookies.
Have a great weekend everyone!
