Hello Friday! It’s lovely to see you again!
So let’s get to it, shall we?
Arden started swimming lessons this week! I wouldn’t go as far as to say that she loved them, but she’s getting there 😉 I assumed that because she mastered her lessons last year that she’d be a pro in the pool this time around too…ehh, not so much! I think being older has made her a little less trusting of the water. She wants to be on my hip most of the time–but she’s getting a little braver each day!
The funniest thing is that there are a bunch of little bath toys in the pool during the lessons and one of them is a guy riding a wave runner…for whatever reason, Arden LOVES him. I had to wake her up yesterday morning and when I asked if she wanted to go to swimming lessons, still half asleep she asked: “And get the guy?” I just love her 🙂
It may not be the Dr. Pepper Ten I would like to be enjoying every day, but I’ve been getting my carbonated bev fix from this sparkling strawberry lemonade. It’s delicious!
Life at Gigi & Papa’s is pretty darn good. So good that I’m starting to worry about how Arden will react to moving into our new house next month. No playhouse, no ranger, no cows? Say what?!? Good thing we’ll only be a short drive from all these awesome amenities…and her grandparents 🙂
One thing our new house WILL have? Awesome countertops. Ahhh!!! After countless hours of research (and just as many convincing Chris that we needed them!) I finally decided on a Carrara-looking quartz for our kitchen counters. You might’ve seen the same dilemma on Darci’s five last week…let’s just say we’ve shared about 3,596 text on this topic!! I’m so glad we’re doing all of this at the same time because we’ve been able to share ideas, get each other’s opinions, and become totally consumed in things like countertops without looking like super crazies to one another!!! That doesn’t mean our husbands didn’t think we looked like super crazies though 😉
So anyyyyyway, this is where I finally landed and I’m pretty ecstatic about it! It’s called Viatera Minuet and this picture shows it paired with our beveled subway tile backsplash. Eeek, I can’t wait!!!!
And yes, that’s the biggest sample I could get my hands on. Ha!
I mean, how ADORABLE is this?!?!
I just love everything about it! And wouldn’t it be the perfect addition to Arden’s “donut shop” 2nd birthday party (which I’m only planning in my head at this point! Ha!)?! Love, love, love!
Well folks, that’s all I’ve got today! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!! 🙂
