Sitting Up

The other day we were over at my parents house. 
We started talking about how much the baby is changing and I jokingly propped him up on the ground as if he could sit up on his own. 

To my amazement he could!!
Just a little wobbly but boy oh boy he was sitting up!! 
Yesterday morning we snagged a few quick minutes before school to get some pictures of him!

of course we had to let sister sneak in for a few!

And I just had to throw this one in there of how sweet the hand embroidery on his top is. Just adore it!

New Logo and Potential new design

A few weeks ago I posted a poll on the blog to see what yall thought about changing the name of the blog when we move.

I think it only makes sense for me to begin to start streamlining a few things.

So what do you think?

Alot is left to be determined design and blog wise but wanted to give you guys a sneak peek!!

The Good, the Bad, The Ugly. Grouting our Shower

Soo... every home has at least one UGLY side. 
Ours was the master bathroom's shower.

For some reason it did not occur to us to try and regrout the bathroom before putting our house on the market. 

Well, here is the shameful start people.

and no, not until we took this photo did we realize some of the floor tiles had been replaced throughout the years. Oh well...

SOOO much better!!!

The wall tiles basically look brand new now!!

Our domesticated Jungle

Six weeks ago we sat out to FINALLY landscape the backyard.

I am amazed in such a few short weeks how jungle like our backyard has become. 

After our trip to the beach we kinda started slacking back there and now it is time to return it to its riteful before. 

We have NO clue what this random pole in the middle of the yard was for. This house has shown to have some pretty bizarre things. haha

And yes that is the interstate wall we back up to. Yes, it's ugly but the sound isn't bad at all!

We love being in the heart of the city and 10-15 minutes from everything!

It will be a bittersweet move when we leave here. 

Be back with pictures of how much everything has grown already!

The Doghouse

Soo no home is complete without a dog house right??


A few weeks ago we went to a large neighborhood garage sale and I found this flamingo pink dog house.

I just knew we had to have it, then I found out it had heated floors, a heat lamp and a fan for the summer with ventilation??
Kicking the dogs outside doesn't sound half bad now huh?
So after a fresh coat of BM Newport Navy I decided this was a good start.

Considering painting the trim antigua aqua.

I will keep you posted on that one.

Destin 2012 Part 1

Finally I am getting around to posting these photo's!

We had a very busy and fun time at the beach!

The first day of vacation we headed to Presley's Lake near Mobile, AL. 

The in laws joined us and we took the jet ski out! 

The next morning we packed up and headed to Destin. 

Some how I managed to not get any pictures while playing at the beach that day but I got plenty at dinner!

The girls were obsessed with the water

And the collection of the next few photo's is too funny to not include. 

This is what it looks like to photograph a 3 yr old a 15 month old and a 4  month old.

Everyone walking by us was laughing and so were we.

So we gave up and played some more!

And then our friends who joined us helped us wrangle the kiddos to head in for the evening. haha

be back later with the rest of the trip!
