I also picked out these fish for the shamu shelf. I woke up at 5:00 am Monday morning and drove inland for an hour in crazy morning traffic to buy them. Then flew back to the coast to be at our house by 8:00 when the plastering was about to start (yeah – cut it a little close with that one!). When the kids saw them they decided the baby fish is Kole, the middle two are the girls, and the first fish is daddy. Where’s the mommy fish? According to Ellie I was eaten by a shark. (What!?) Now I’m totally kicking myself that I didn’t buy one more fish! Clearly I’m paying the price. :)
Hello friends! I went dark for a few days. K. That just sounded a lot more serious than I meant for it to. Let me start again. I took a mini blogging hiatus to deal with house stuff. Wait. It sounded cooler to say I went “dark.” I’m sticking with that one. It’s all about the pool this week! Time to plaster! After checking out several pools last week (so many fun options) we ended up choosing pebble tec with a hydrazzo like finish. If that makes no sense to you it’s ok – I wouldn’t have understood it a week ago. :) The color is a custom mix my landscaper came up with based on the shade of blue we want the water to be. Too funny that it matches all of the aqua in my house! Not planned. :) Here are a few pics from plaster day…
I bought these three little turtles because I thought they would be fun for my three little turtles. :)
They started filling the pool with water this afternoon!

p.s. I’ve been getting several of the same questions about wood floors, paint colors, and a few other new house things so I’m going to write a Q & A post soon. Let me know if you have any other questions in the comments! Enjoy your day!
