Loving Summer

We have had so much fun over the last week.

I have been busy doing stuff around the house to get ready to sell. We had a garage sale, my first ever, and it was so great to get rid of stuff we weren't using and didn't want to have to move it!

So the sale of "extras" led to rearranging the furniture to open up the house...you know, that's what my realtor sister tells me helps sell homes. Please note the cute blue chair that I snagged and painted. When I say snag, I really do mean snag. It was on my neighbors lawn labeled "free stuff" and I seriously took it home and painted it blue. You know you've hit a new low when you take furniture off other's lawns that was to be trashed! You can't say I am not frugal.

Sister has been trying to climb out of her bed, not a ton...but we've never had one do this before, so we went ahead and got her a twin bed. I found a steal on craigslist and painted it pink! So fun! We love it! We tried it for the first time a few nights ago, and she did great! Only problem was this... Sadie showing us her bed...and below she fell asleep so peacefully.
When I checked on her the next morning, she was in her crib!!! I ran and asked Blake if he had moved her in the middle of the night. Nope. We never heard a peep on the monitor! Guess she got out and climbed in her crib sometime after we checked on her when we went to bed!!!!
Other than that, we've just spent a ton of time at the pool. Man are we blessed to have a pool!
This pic was taken by Cooper! I had to crop my booty out of it! It never is a good idea to give a little boy at booty level the camera! But he really wanted to take a picture of us!
On Tuesday night Sadie and I had an ice cream date with her birth mom. It was so fun and we feel so blessed to live so close to her so that we can do stuff like that!

so proud of Sadie in her big girl bed! (even if she did escape back to her crib.) holden is a big boy but has made no attempts to leave his crib so we just keep going with it.
and i love all your painted furniture. sometimes that is the BEST stuff, not to mention an inexpensive way to decorate. the house looks great! i have been scouting craigslist for some things, but no luck so far. so glad you are enjoying one last summer in the area (for now).

Look @ you little miss hottie in a 2 piece. I'm glad you cropped out your backside so I wouldn't get jealous. Where did you get Sadie's bedding. KB's room is black/white & hot pink. She's still in her crib that's converted to the toddler. The next conversion is full, I wish that it was a twin. We need to do a beauty day & do hair & nails for our princesses!
