It’s too hot to exist right now and I’m ready for Fall (yes, I’m one of those people). I’ve never been a huge summer person and I’m a baby about the heat. All I want to do right now is crank the air down real low and never leave my house but there’s that whole work thing I have to go to so I’ll have to settle for keeping my desktop fan turned all the way up and pointed directly at my face.
1 – In case you missed the announcement over on Instagram, Kyle and I are having a baby! Well, I guess I’m the one that’s having it but he’s pretty involved in the whole process, too. I just hit 15 weeks today and we’re do mid-January and we’re both very excited about the whole thing. I don’t know how much baby related stuff I’ll post on the blog outside of the nursery, but it probably won’t be much.
2 – Our garden is exploding and I love it. I’m nervous about losing some of the plants because it’s been so hot lately but we’ll see. Our jalapeno and tomato plants have been producing like crazy and I think our bell peppers might be ready; hopefully we haven’t missed them! It’s been a few days since we checked on them and they were close.
3 – I posted forever ago about a mirror I was in love with and although I thought we would never actually buy it because spending that much money on a mirror makes me want to hurl, it showed up at our house a few days ago. Yep, we actually pulled the trigger on it. West Elm was having a 25% off sale and Kyle’s parents very generously offered to gift us half (thanks again!!) so while it was still more money than I every thought I would spend on a piece of decor, I’m very happy with the purchase. We’re hanging it this weekend and until then it’s safely sitting in the former craft room/current guest room/future nursery.
4 – Kyle and I tried out a new diner downtown this morning and holy crap it was good. Seriously, if you are local you should check out Diner 24. I had heard mixed things but our service was pretty good and the food was delicious. The best part is it’s open 24/7 so if we ever find ourselves out partying downtown at 2am (hahahaha, yeah right) we can easily go throw down on some dinner plate sized pancakes.
5 – We still haven’t really worked on the bedroom (other than installing the new door frame/doors with help from Kyle’s dad) but Kyle and his dad knocked out part of the fence that still needed to be done and we got a new roof! We also moved our sectional and tv into the sitting room so now the other room is open to become the office/craft room. So the bedroom might not be done yet, there has been a little bit of progress going on around the house.
