Time Keeps on Tickin...

Okay so I realized it has been forever since I posted.  Sorry. Things have been a little busy the last few months.  Here is a brief overview of a few events.

Ryan and I took a few days off and joined the Millers at the lake Easter weekend.
We decorated the lakehouse and celebrated Dan's final chemo on Thursday!!!  
No, that is not Icabob Crane.  Dan spent the weekend bundled up. He says that chemo makes him very sensitive to cold. 
Maggie and her Cousin Otis spent all day running and playing in the water.  They were both very tired at the end of the day.

I finally got to plant the summer vegetables last weekend.  Here is a list of what I have so far. I am a little worried about which ones will actually make it. The vegetables were pretty picked over at my nursery.  They actually looked better at Wal-Mart, but I just couldn't buy them from Wal-Mart. That's weird!!  I planted Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Cucumbers,  Green Peppers, Squash, Zucchini, Eggplant, Basil, Rosemary, Parsley.  New this year is 2 different kinds of lettuce and Ryan wanted some type of spicy pepper.  I really hope the lettuce works. Something about picking my lettuce, tomato, and cucumbers to put on a salad just makes me happy!  I didn't do as much of a variety this year, but I planted a few plants of everything so that we'd have a lot to share.  
We have also packed up A LOT of these.  For the past 2 months I have TiVoed every staging show on HGTV.  We are now the proud owners of a 10 X 10 climate controlled storage unit.  Very exciting!!  We have spent every free moment we have filling it up and doing some other projects.  
The tool box has become a part of our living room furniture lately.  We have installed new faucets in all the sinks and replaced all the light fixtures.  I am hoping to get some painting done next week.  We are very eager to put it on the market very soon.  Right now we are just trying to decide whether we want to do it ourselves or get a realtor.  Hopefully, by my next post it will be on the market!!


  1. Wow, Emily! You've been so busy! I had no idea you were selling your house. What's the plan?!
