Happy Monday everyone! Dumping some recent pics from my iPhone today.
No theme or particular order. Just things that I’ve been up to. :)
First some new house pics…
Lots of time has been spent in the tile stores. I’m done designing bathrooms! Tile order will be placed this week. It feels so good to have that behind me. I’ll share more details at some point. I could blog about that little undertaking for a week!
Still not finished with lighting, but what I do have picked out I am so excited about!
I will share pics when I have everything finalized.
We have chosen our stone for the exterior and this week I picked out the brick.
This is the winner and while I really like it, I hope it isn’t too light. We only have a small amount of brick on the house (a border above the rock) so if this doesn’t work hopefully it won’t look too bad. It’s so easy to pick my favorite of everything. Making sure it will all look good once it’s together? Not so easy. On a lot of these decisions I am just flying blind and hoping everything works out! :)
My dutch door is done! YEA!! So exciting.
It’s obviously not painted yet but I’m already so in love with it! I adore the square windows and shelf.
Now I just need to pick a fun color for it!
A blurry pic of me with my designer and cabinet guy. Love these two. I could hang out with them in the wood mill all day long. Oh my word that place smells good! Nothing like the smell of freshly cut wood (especially when it’s freshly cut wood for my doors and cabinets!).
And in other news…
I’ve gained four pounds. Crap. Total stress eating and not enough time to exercise. Jeans are getting tight. I’m trying to do better this week! My fajitas
Plus I’m hoping my new cup will help me drink more water. I LOVE this cup. I found it at Staples but I’ve seen them all over. It keeps your drink cold. I carry it all around the house with me when I’m home and take it with me in my car on the go.
Also at Staples I found this adorable little aqua lined pouch. It matched my planner so I couldn’t leave the store without it. :)
It lives in my purse holding my go to purse make-up. I love it because I don’t have to fish around for chap stick when I need it. I just reach in my purse and grab the zipper pouch.
I also added these soft pick tooth pics to my mini make up bag. Perfect for when you are out and about and have something stuck in your teeth. Hate that. These soft picks are the best!
And last but far from least, a quick pic I snapped with my phone today after church. El received an award for reading the Book of Mormon. (Kids in our church
are encouraged to read it when they turn 8). And she did it! It took a year and a bit of help from dad but she set a goal and she did it. I’m so proud of her. Kenny teases me that now her scripture knowledge has surpassed mine. That’s ok. I know I’m a work in progress. :) Plus I don’t take anything my husband says too seriously. This is coming from the guy that just spent the evening watching Battleship
– thumping his chest and going on and on about how it is the best movie ever – right up there with Armageddon
– and how it hands down will receive an Oscar this year.
Yup. Hows my scripture knowledge sounding now?
Happy Monday Friends!
p.s. Yellow stripes for the girls today. Can you tell I am ready for Spring!?
