greetings y’all! it’s that time again…let’s dive right in, shall we?
i love a good katie ridder wallpaper. and wouldn’t you know, i have an example right here?! now – have you seen bailey at peppermint bliss’s before and afters in her austin, tx home? the bathrooms especially are bananas. i love that when renovating this particular bathroom, she was on bed rest and could not oversee the installing of the tile…and they were supposed to be turned at 45 degree angles to be a quatrefoil pattern. i thought it looked fab at first glance though!
it’s been pretty warm around these parts. in all seriousness, the thought of hauling two kids and all of their gear to the pool….alone….chasing after a wily 3-year-old boy and tending to a baby in a float simultaneously…it makes me want to cry real tears. so what is one to do? THIS of course!
i am sure our neighbors are super impressed and uber glad we moved to the street. between that and the skivvy sprinkler runs, we are really making a name for ourselves here.
speaking of our neighborhood, i stopped by a neighbor’s house yesterday (i love our listserve) to grab two slightly used toddler car seats that we will use for rinne once she switches from the infant seat. i was by myself and just tossed them into my car along with my other two car seats i always have in the back seat. y’all, 4 car seats is a lot to have in a sedan. and then i stopped by a nursery to pick up a few plants for the garden (if you’re thinking hello, trunk?, it’s full. strollers.) i kept snickering to myself driving down the road with this next to me, wondering what i would think if i saw this sight along with three other car seats in the back. perhaps – a gardening hoarder with a penchant for child or purse safety? maybe i’m a mom who REFUSES to upgrade to a minivan, therefore necessitating a child’s car seat to be put in the front seat (which i’m fairly certain is illegal).
it just really made me laugh.
we’ve been working on lots of birth announcements this summer! this custom calligraphy birth announcement in bright, feminine colors just puts a smile on my face. it’s so happy.
lots more fun things to show you soon in our new and improved website we’re busily working on!!
