GRAY and The Princess and Jester


We have a contract on our house! 
Yay!

Tomorrow we are getting our sewer line checked for leaks. We are praying there are none! 
If there are, it could cost up to $10,000 to fix. 

Let me see if I have $10,000 in my purse....umm, no!

I decided to paint gray over my pink dining room. Let's get real, pink probably appeals to about 5 people. Katie and I are two of them. And then maybe 3 of her friends. 
Marcus didn't even realize it was pink.
Now it's Mindful Gray from Sherwin Williams.

The living room got painted the same color about a month ago. 
 

The kitchen got "grayed" too. I feel like such a grown up!
The gray got us a contract, so I like it! 
I painted my awning heirloom white too. 

I am thinking the new house will have mostly neutral walls, but I will still have colorful accessories. I'm trying to look around for ideas. I want to move in and have it decorated the next day. 
Or really flip that. 
Decorate it, then move in. 
I'm so ready! 

On Sunday night we went to a friend's house to pick up some moving boxes. Katie thought this was the appropriate attire. I was severely undressed.

I need to include the boy too!

Jesse has been making faces at Katie during meal time to make her laugh. It works every time! She giggles herself silly!
He's so funny! 
Especially with jelly on his face.
 He is starting to big boy things. It's so crazy, because I feel like he's still a newborn! The things we need to work on are waking up after the sun is up, breaking up with the bottle (honestly I don't see that happening anytime soon) and he calls me Dadda! 

And he's so proud of it too. He pats me, looks at me lovingly in the eyes and says, "Dadda!"

He's about to get a full lesson on pregnancy, heart burn, c-sections, breast feeding, and stretch marks if he doesn't say Momma soon!

Here Comes The Sun

So, I don't know if you've heard...but it's been a little bit soggy around here!

D/FW beat the record for the wettest May in the history of ever. AND we beat it by over 3 inches. We have been in a drought for 5 years, so it's hard to complain. We have just had to deal with inconveniences, but some people have lost their homes or even lives. (that sounded kind of dramatic, but true)

These pictures are of a baseball field.
Now ducks are swimming on it!
This is what Marcus would call a "turd floater". I know it's not ladylike, but I have lived with him for almost 16 years, so he's rubbed off on me. And it's actually factual this time!


So the past couple of days have been sunny and we were ready to bust out of the house! 
This was our first swimming day of the year. 

Too cold for Jesse:
This little puddle jumper thing was too big by the way. We took it off. It only works if they are 30lbs, I found out later. We LOVED having Katie's the past few years!
So he sat in Katie's old lady bug.

The big girl tried it too. 
She swam great for her first time since September!
She said it was "swimtastic"!

The other day when it was only misting outside we went to Six Flags!
Katie is a dare devil. 

She and Marcus are on the last car of that big roller coaster.

Jesse and I just watched safely on the ground! 
It was fun and we just got a little damp.

So glad the sun is supposed to be shining all week. 
And now I just realized, I didn't get ready one bit for shorts or bathing suit weather! 
Whoops
My body was made more for big sweatshirts and leggings!
