This & That

We've had a hectic couple of weeks - two years later, we finally got our house painted/wallpapered - other than the bedrooms which we'll work on in the fall/winter.  It meant lots of time out of the house to keep Tatum occupied and most rooms out of use for a week and a half - they finished on Friday though and we're so happy with it!

We finally, finally got our "spring" flowers planted - I'd been waiting until we got back from California.  We just need to pickup a few more and we'll be all set.  I'm hoping that our four rose bushes hold on and make it back next year.

The weekend (now three weekends ago, ha!) we got back from our long vacation we laid low - laundry, unpacking, catching up, a fun dinner out with friends but then that Sunday the weather was perfect - we spent most of the day on the deck playing and reading and decided to impromptu grill a nice family dinner for the three of us.

We took Tatum to see his first movie - Toy Story 4 - with some friends last weekend and he did pretty well - snacked on a lot of things and sat fairly still until about 20 minutes left.

Weekend before last I slipped away for about 35 minutes to myself at the pool - it was so nice since usually I'm chasing Tatum all over the place!

I finally jumped on the Trader Joe's bandwagon - Tatum loves a bunch of snacks/pouches from there and I've been enjoying their produce, frozen items and of course the flowers.


  1. Laughed at you slipping away for 35 minutes and now that's what we find relaxing! Hope you have a great 4th of july week! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Your dining / living room looks GORGEOUS! Love the color and the wallpaper! So pretty. And your landscaping is gorgeous, too!

  3. Your wallpaper in the dining room looks amazing!! I think we're going to do something similar in our new house :)
