hi everyone 🙂
I hope that you had a good weekend. Ours was good. My only compliant is the HEAT!! It is so, so HOT here!!
On Friday afternoon/evening, I met with some blog friends/real life friends. They are actually all “IRL” friends now! Katie M, I actually grew up with. She and Jessica are two of my best friends. Jessica grew up with my husband and we’ve been spending lots of time together since I moved here a few years ago. Seven of us attended the get together. We don’t all live in the same town but we were able to find the time to all make a meeting time work. I’ve met with all these girls before except for Katie S (not pictured). We had a fun time hanging out and chatting. Here is a pic we snapped. I’ll be honest, at first, I was in the middle. My shirt looked like a sack, though. I had to move so that I wasn’t the big round orange in center, haha. I think the girls agreed once they saw the picture ; p
After the bloggy get together, Katie M and I met Brent at our house. One of Brent’s older brothers (kind of), Matt, has a band and we went to see him play for a bit. Brent loves singing, as I’ve mentioned before, so he sand a song with him. Sonya (Matt’s wife) snapped these pics….
Brent & Matt
Saturday morning Katie headed home and Brent and I headed to the new house. Reminder…in the spring, Brent and I decided it would be best to put our house for sale. We didn’t know what would happen with our financial situation and such with Cohen’s unknown amount of time in the hospital. Brent’s grandmother moved in with Brent’s mom, so he and I are moving into her house. The house is very old and needed a few things done to be livable for us (air conditioner, paint, clean, etc.). Our house is still for sale 🙁 We are hoping and praying it will sell soon. With medical bills and such, it’s still in our best interest to sell it.
Luckily, we have wonderful friends and family who have helped us over the past few months at the new house. Once we got back from Dallas, we rested for a few weeks and have just started working back on the house again. My parents helped us on Saturday and we got a lot done. I will do a post soon that shows some of the progress we have made since this post (the before pics).
Here is Brent over the weekend cleaning the floors…
We took Elton over to the house for the first time. He wasn’t sure what to think. We had to keep a close eye on him because of some wet paint!
The kitchen is not what I’m use to. It’s tiny! Fortunately, there is a little room off the side of the kitchen that I can use as a pantry and storage. The fridge is also in it. My dad and brother put some shelves together while I was in Dallas. Today, I did some arranging and here is the first one. Sasha, cake plates? 😉
Speaking of shelves, this is just a little cute one. It has some sort of white marble looking shelves. I was thinking of painting this, the wire part. I MUST become more crafty with paint. I’ve got several pieces of furniture I’ll be posting pictures of in the future. I need input and direction. Can I just spray paint the shelf below with spray paint??
On Saturday evening, we went over to Brent’s sister’s house for dinner. I know I’ve had a lot of readers who have let me know they are new readers. Brent and I have 2 nieces and 1 nephew that live less than a mile. We are able to spend lots of time with them and they are precious! We are moving a little bit across town but I have a feeling we will be making weekly tripS over 😉
Beaux taking a bath – he is 8 months and he is a chunk!
I caught the girls playing on our iphones last night. It’s amazing how good they are at working the phone. The play lots of fun kids games.
I think Brent was showing them a game here…..
This morning Brent golfed and I rested. We then got the house ready for an open house. We worked at the new house for a few house. Hopefully, we will be staying there soon!
It was a nice weekend but they all seem to pass too quickly.
I can’t believe it’s been a month since Cohen went to Heaven. Sometimes it still doesn’t feel real. Most(all) of the time I just wish my baby was here. I wake up thinking maybe it was a dream. Thank you all for sweet comments on the video I posted. I could seriously watch it non-stop.
I’m finally getting around to replying to emails. I know a few of you have emailed me wondering if I got yours. I have and I so appreciate them!
