Summer Begins....

Our daily routine of gym, swim, nap, dinner will be interrupted at the end of June by a move to Kansas City.  We will be so sad to leave our Bubble and all of the amazing friends we have made here.  I don't know how I will again love a city without a beach, but thank goodness that some of my best friends are close by and grandparents are within a couple of hours.  

It's been a while since I have blogged.... Here's a quick update.

My furry friend of 13 years left us about a month ago.  It was terribly sad.  I miss her so much.  This was a photo taken right before I had to say good bye.

We drove 20 hours to get to Kansas City to see the house we bought ON LINE!  We are so happy with it!!

Our 5 year old graduated from Montessori Kindergarden.  We are very proud of her!!

I have been refinishing furniture that I buy at thrift stores.  This was $39 at Habitat for Humanity.  I'm super excited about my new found love of refinishing furniture!

And here is a coffee table that I bought for $15 and refinished.  It had crackle paint and green legs before.  Stripped, stained, painted and poly'd.  Love her!!

My sweet little girl learned how to swim yesterday.  She's like a fish.  

And my handsome boy.  I love him.  He can just sit around and be sweet.  

And a final shot of my husband and our little man and me with the kids.  Summer will be so much fun!!


  1. I am excited for you. You always have a great attitude about wherever you go. Love that! Your furniture refinishes are out of this world fabulous! I am so glad you are in the military and don't have to actually pack your stuff. Otherwise moving would be insane! You do it so often!

    The kids are getting so big : (

  2. Yay, a new post. Wow, so much has happened since your last post. So sorry to hear about your dog, it's so hard to say goodbye to a loved pet.

    Congrats on the new house, it looks amazing! Maybe you can post a picture house tour when you move in LOL. It's so great that you will have family and friends close by when you move. Too bad you won't have a beach to go to and take pictures at but I bet it will be so much fun exploring new territory!

    Congratulations to your daughter on her graduation!

    The furniture = AWSOME!! So talented.

  3. I agree, you have such a great attitude! Sad you are moving...I had hopes of meeting you one day in Hilton Head :)

  4. Good luck with your move, that house looks BEAUTIFUL! And that picture of you and your dog made me choke up. Sad.

  5. SO glad to see you blogging again! I'm so sorry about your fur baby. :( Big hugs!! And oh my goodness, your kiddos are getting so big! How did that happen??? Good luck with your move and look forward to more blog posts!! :) xoxo

  6. So sorry about your dog...that's so hard :-( You are moving to my neck of the woods - I live north of KC a little...hope you're not moving near the water here as we are preparing to experience a major flood! Good luck on your move!

  7. Cass love the furniture! Yet another love we have in common! All of my occasional tables are re-do's!
