Hey you party people! It's been a minute since I've been on here. Well, been on here and actually clicked the publish button anyway. I thought I'd share a quick update of what we've been up to and what I plan on sharing later this week!
Since the 4th of July our weekends have been pretty low key. Runs at the Wellness Complex on Saturday mornings followed by quite a bit of time spent outside going for family walks, playing in Liam's splash pad or sandbox, trying to get rid of the endless amount of weeds taking over our grass, and wandering Costco when we can't stand the 95 degree heat for one more second. Nic and I love the samples, Liam loves the ginormous teddy bears. It's a win, win. :)
Then before we know it the work week rolls around again. I don't always look forward to Mondays
because Nic goes back to work and I pour all of my time and energy into cleaning the entire house and catching up on the mountain of laundry that has quickly accumulated throughout the weekend. However, I never feel more accomplished than I do at the end of a Monday! Today I decided to add "clean all the closets" to my to do list and I suddenly have 3 giant garbage bags full of random crap I've been hanging onto to donate tomorrow. I also made toy rearranging a top priority because they were TAKING OVER MY LIFE. haha It's funny, I remember the day when we only had one toy in the whole house. I moved Liam's teepee to his room and organized all of his toys and moved them into his closet for a play space and suddenly my house feels so much more roomy, I love it!
In other news, our danger prone Liam nursed a black eye after church nursery last Sunday and is sporting a swollen bloodied lip from tripping up the stairs to get to the slide at the playground this Sunday. Sometimes I think we need to wrap that kid up in bubble wrap!
I have some fun things I'm excited to share with you this week including a 21 month update of Liam and the funny things he says and does these days, a yard update because we are FINALLY almost finished with it after 3 years of living here, and I'm working on a house tour! I love seeing the insides of people's homes and decorating is right up my alley but it is definitely expensive so I feel like I've avoided sharing because I've wanted to have everything crossed off my to-do list first. I'm learning that the list of projects never actually ends and my decorating tastes change over time so I might as well just share how it is right now and update later as it evolves. So check back tomorrow. :)
Happy Monday! XO
