Patio, done.











And my dad was THE BIGGEST blessing! We spent so much time on my patio during his visit and had fun problem solving so many different elements of this project (converting window boxes into over the rail boxes, staining concrete, efficiently painting those nightmarish floral shelves---who knew so many groves were possible?!). The finished product is worth every bit of our effort. It is now such a happy place.
I love waking up, grabbing a cup of coffee, and just sitting out here to read & be still. Thank you for all of your selfless hard work Daddy!
We miss you already.

Patio, before.

I've finally decided on the Patio Furniture color (after input from Debra and my mom). Drum roll... Blue Macaw


All three of us agree it goes nicely with the ottoman fabric, which is like three yards away from the patio. And it's all primed (FINALLY!) and ready to go...


My dad arrived today and we will surely get to painting in the next few days. And our lil helper is getting over strep throat and he's eager to get to work...

A laughing baby over here...



The excitement over "poo-pooing" all started when we opened our package from Grandpa Bee (my dad) and found this:

And there was much rejoicing!!!

It's Christmas morning over here...



As I just put my baby down for a nap with a clear nose for the first time in over a week. You wouldn't believe the amount of snot that came out on our first go round. I love you Baby-Vac. Stop what you're doing and buy it. Four thumbs up (two of mine and two of Gideon's)!
