Hello, strangers! It’s been another long stretch in between posts, and I apologize for that. There’s been lots happening around here lately so the ‘ol blog has taken a bit of a backseat. I’m hoping that with the coming summer vacation I’ll have a little more time to pop in around here.
So what’s been keeping me away from this little corner of the Internet? Well, first and foremost, most of you know we’re in the middle of building a house so that has definitely been keeping our attention. It seems like every other day we’re having to go here and there to pick something out or meet with the contractor. So far it hasn’t been a bad experience at all, but there has been a ton of decisions which makes the head spin a bit. Poor John has definitely had to bear more of the brunt of than I have!
These pictures are about a week old, but it still looks pretty much the same at this point. Most of the work done this past week was plumbing and electrical. I can’t believe how fast we’ve gotten to this point. John assures me that the progress will probably start to slow down now, but wow!
Other than the house, school has been taking up a lot of my time and attention. The last few weeks have been a whirl of testing and activities that have left wanting nothing more than my bed by 7 o’clock every night. I even have the pleasure of a field trip to OKC (a 6 hour round trip!) to look forward to tomorrow. But it’s all gravy because we are down to the last six days of school. That’s right, folks. In a week and a half, I’ll be running around singing Alice Cooper at the top of my lungs. To say I am ready would be an understatement.
In other news, last weekend we found out some pretty exciting news! My sister and brother-in-law held a gender reveal party to find out exactly who we’ll be welcoming into the family in a few months. All the guests dressed in blue or pink (or both!).
John’s guess was one of each, but I was Team Pink all the way. I had a really strong feeling that both babies would be girls. So who was right?
That would be me! We’ll be getting two beautiful baby nieces in September, and all of us are so excited!
So that’s what has been up in our corner of the world lately! I’ll promise to pop back in much sooner (although, full disclosure, it will probably be after school is out next week!), and, hopefully, I’ll be able to show even more house progress. Until then!
