It's summer time to me!

I know, I know, It's like I've dropped of the face of the earth. But I'm happy to say I'm back!

Finally, This weekend feels like my summer has started! I have been working non-stop on the house. We have renovated almost the whole house in a 2 month time period. Don't get me wrong, we still have lots to do, but we have made a big dent in a short period of time! It's been crazy. We had a shower for my friend Courtney Mc. at my house Sat night, so that gave me a lot of incentive to get as much done as possible. I have literally been working every spare minute I have. You name it, I've attempted it. My birthday was yesterday and it was the 1st day that I just relaxed and did nothing at all to the house! Now, we will just slow down and do the rest when we feel like it! Today I even had a few hours to lay out and read. I haven't read a book since before Reese was born. I love a good book when I'm relaxing, and there has been none of that lately. I got some sun, read a book, and just enjoyed what feels like my first day of summer! (while the babies were napping of course). So here are a few pictures of the first few days of my summer vacation! Let the good times roll!

Babe's chicken fried steak, chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans & corn! Yum.

This is at Babe's Chicken. It's one of my favorite places to eat! It's the best home cooking. Thanks to my mom, I had to do the chicken dance in the lovely hat!

This is the closest I'll get to a pool this summer. This is our "water mountain" aka water fountain. Davis gave it that name. It's so peaceful when it's on, and the water trickling and the smell of chlorine really makes me feel like I'm at a resort. Or at least near a pool! Here's my set up from today. I got some good sun!

Here's the book I started today- Twilight. Everyone has been raving about it, so I finally decided to read it. I didn't see the movie, so I'm gonna see what all the fuss is about. I have read about 100 pages, and so far so good! I'll keep you posted on how it develops.

I'll post some before & after pics of the house soon!
