about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

So Much Stuff!

Big Daddy and I officially have our new house on the brain! That's all we've talked about all weekend.
We spent the first half of yesterday furniture shopping. Both girls behaved (with Baby Ellie in her sling) AND we ordered a new sofa. Big Daddy was having a hard time finding the "right one" but we finally found one that would work. After a trip to T@rget and lunch we came back to the little apartment where he changed his mind! So, he's calling to cancel the order today and we'll try again after we are more settled in. We don't have a lot of seating for the living room, but it's enough for us. Our love seat is only a couple of years old and we have so many things that we want to do and so much money to spend, so we'll wait for a big sale or something and hopefully get exactly the "right one". I got rid of so many things and gave away a few pieces of furniture, so we will be shopping pretty soon.
We had our walk through with the builder after church today and we should be closing on Tuesday morning if nothing crazy happens! After being inside the finished house today, Big Daddy and I are ready to move in! We'll be decorating things fairly slow, but I'll try to post a few pictures before we move in and there are boxes everywhere.
I'll probably be too busy for the computer most of this week. We are anxious to get settled in the house and get back to a normal routine. My top priorities will be getting The Muffin and Baby Ellie's rooms put together and getting all of the kitchen stuff where it belongs. We also have landscaping plans, but that may be put on the waiting list for cooler weather. We'll be watering the lawn and worrying about that before trying to plant flowers and shrubs and such.

And just for fun, here are our two crazy ladies before church this morning! Baby Ellie decided to dress down so that she would be extra comfortable!
