1) I am obsessed with these pictures on this ETSY SHOP {Corso Graphics} from my friend and former college roomie. I want to re-do our hall bath since all we have done when we moved in 4 years ago was hang some too-small pictures and a shower curtain up. Finishing the basement comes first. {see #2}

2) We are starting to pull ideas and floor plans together to finish our basement. I need to call some contractors to come get us bids. My Pinterest board is full of images like this:
Small bathroom idea. Love this for our lower level when we finish it.

Add a bar to eat at behind the couch. Love this idea for a basement.

3.) I am going to Austin TX next weekend for a wedding of a good college friend. I want to try FRANKLIN BBQ, but not sure I can stand in line for 4 hours for BBQ, no matter how good it is. 


4) I am so over the Beyonce/Solange/Jay Z elevator fiasco. I wish the media would shut up about it. 

5) Tomorrow is our 6 year anniversary. My life has completely changed in the last 6 years. We built a house, had 2 kids and we both have changed jobs. All of it for the better, no matter how tired we are.

Toddler Boy; Elsa's Braid, and Shopping

How's that for a title?

this little man just climbing right up to the table to mess with the papers that I leave all over the table. {gotta get better at that!}

My mom came down for the weekend, and was joined by her sister last minute once my cousin decided to drive over from the Quad Cities. Impromptu Girls Weekend! 

My cousin Sami did Avery's shorter hair into a braid like Elsa. {Frozen for you non-parents, non-Disney loving folks}

Shopping is hard work...

My mom gave Avery some "walking around" money, so she decided to spend it on a puzzle.

Waited in line and paid for it all by herself. She has been into putting money in her piggy bank, so we have been discussing chores and how to earn that money. Unless Grandma comes to town, then she sneaks it to her from Papa.
