Google Yourself

Ever Google yourself?  If I Google my maiden name vs my married name it's as if I Googled two different people.  It's a little weird. It's also fun to Google map your own home.  This is what shows up if you Google us now.  The picture has to be from at least a year ago.  Dave has a different Prius, our house isn't painted, the front yard is freshly done and the side yard still has the grasses.  It doesn't feel like much has changed in the last year and a half but then I look at this and I see we've been busy.  I guess these would be considered a #tbt, if there was a Facebook for homes.

...just fixing a blind so it rolls again feels like a giant accomplished. I was on the phone with a friend when I started looking at how I could take it apart.  I got mad multi-tasking skills! Opening the blinds and windows first thing in the morning makes me feel alive and ready to start the day! This was big on my to-do list!

Summer is Here!

It hit 100 degrees last week! The shade sails went up!  Dave and the girls were in the pool three times yesterday!  Summer is officially here!

I feel like I'm in a new house! The house debuted it's new stucco and paint back in October, but I hadn't really experienced the house outside in summer until this past weekend.  For example, I've never taken a picture of the girls in the pool from the angle above.  The walls looked so ugly I never even bothered.  But now I am happy, and dare I say proud, of how our back yard looks. I can't even show a before and after because I have no befores!  The only thing close are here or here

It's going to be a great summer! We have more plans for the backyard!  I can't wait!
