What ya been up to? Well.........

That is a saying my Nana always asks me....what ya been up to? Well quite a lot actually. I am loving the Summer as always. Since I have not posted anything new I am going to put several different posts all into this one. I am way behind.

As most of you know Matt and I are in the process of buying a house. We had our inspection last weekend and the house got an "A"! I am so happy since I was thinking BIG problems and lots of extra money with a house built in 1955. We close on the house at the end of July. We are praying everything will go good and we will have a nice clean easy closing. We have already picked out paint for the house and decided to refinished the original hardwoods under the carpet...big work ahead for us:)
About 2 weeks ago I taught Vacation Bible school at our church Northwest Bible. I was the lead teacher of the 4 year olds. I had so much fun. I love any age from about 2-4....they are just precious. Here are a few pictures from the week. Two of my favorite girls were Abigal and Mary Lauren (pictured below).

Then we had a great Happy Father's Day with my dad weekend before last. My dad LOVES to cook so he cooked up some mean BBQ. We all went over to his house for some family time. We gave him a autographed copy of an old Justin Leonard Sports Illustrated and the Tony Dungy audio book. He love both of them. We spent the day eating and watching the US Open....congrats to Tiger!! What a great day we had with my Dad. We love you!

Ok ok so I have been bit by a shopping bug for the new house. I mean I am not even in it and I have a binder for all of the things I want to do. I can't wait. Over the past few weeks I have bought a few things. I got this great couch at an Estate sale...we actually got it as a gift from Chris' mom Judy...big THANK YOU!! We love it and it will look great in the family room. I also found a shabby chic mantle from a lady in Kessler park who was remodeling her bedroom and was getting rid of it. I love it. Our new house does not have a fireplace so it will work perfect as a replacement. He are a few pictures of my finds. I am on the hunt girls.

More to come.....we just got back from Nana's this past weekend and we kept baby Gray for 1/2 a week and we took lots of pictures from her fun stay with Aunt "Jo"....till later happy reading.
