I may not experience that this side of heaven but it sure is nice to dream about :)
In honor of my fantastic mood I thought I would share some of my favorite things right now...
//Short Hair Don't Care//
This is our mostly-finished entry way and I love it. Love it, love it! I still want to put a few pillows on the bench to shorten the distance between the pictures/mirror and the bench, but other than that it's all done.
I think my favorite piece is the shelf that Brad built using the piping. It's a trendy look that's popping up all over Pinterest and the blogs, and I'm not sure it will look quite so cool in a couple years....but for now I love it and think it looks so fitting in our slightly-modernized entry.
I am always lovin' this girl! She's been so fun lately and is blowing me away with how dang smart she is. Disclaimer, I have no idea if it's considered "on milestone" or not, it could be completely normal - but there's something about seeing your own child soaking in and retaining information that is just amazing. But anyway, the girl knows all her colors and shapes, definitely knows her alphabet and we're working on counting to 20 (she's got 1-15 down solid). She's in the cutest phase right now where if I do anything at all, like give her food/a drink, pick something up for her, wipe her bottom (ha), she'll go, "Thank ya, momma!" Tickles me every time.
It does not tickle me when I have to tell her forty-seven times to pick up a toy or come back here or don't ride your bike into the wall. We're working on listening the first time and it's been a little tough on both of us...but I'm believing it will pay off in the end :)
And also...even though that hair gives me grief pretty much on a daily basis, I love it.
//Cookouts + Campfires//
Once springtime hits, Brad and I are total outdoor people. We grill out as often as we can, and now that we have a big 'ol house, we're planning to have lots of people over for cookouts and campfires! We're starting tonight by having a big group of family over for a cookout since Brad's brother is in town from North Dakota. We're grilling up brats and burgers and I'm making a big batch of Texas Caviar, and everyone's bringing food and drinks....it's gonna be good!
