In 2 weeks, I’ll be 25. Whoa. Seems like I was “just” turning 24!
Also in 2 weeks (plus a few days), we’ll have been homeowners for a full year. Again, whoa. Seems like we were “just” signing closing papers! The house looks quite different than it did when we moved in, so I think I’ll take some pictures to give a little update. We still have a lot of changes we want to make, including building a fence, replacing the carpet with hardwood floors, counters and cabinets in the kitchen, some type of gazebo/pergola in the yard, landscaping in the front, etc, etc! All of that isn’t going to happen this year of course, but it’s fun to look forward to it!
It’s almost time for us to buy seeds and plan our garden for this year! We’ve decided to stick with just the one box again this year, instead of adding to it. We learned a lot the first time around, but still made a lot of mistakes, so we want to take this growing season to “perfect” our gardening before expanding.
Izzy is getting to be sooo good at communicating! She also likes pretending to be a ballerina, cowboy (?), frog, puppy, “kitty-cat”, and princess. And sometimes she does combos, which are hilarious. She’s also really good at expressing her emotions. If she stomps up to me one more time with her arms crossed talking about “I’m MAD mommy!”….
Yeah, remember how I was supposed to update my short story every Friday? Well, 3 days after posting the first chapter, I developed ANOTHER sinus infection. *sigh* I was trying to just wait it out, but on this last Friday, I felt like somebody was shoving razors down my throat, so I went to dr, and they prescribed another round of antibiotics. Do y’all understand how much I hate taking pills? *sigh* But I bet you I’ll finish THIS round, diligently.
Let me tell you about how my hair didn’t give a SINGLE damn about that relaxer though. I’m fro’d out, and so I shall remain.
I mentioned (and initially started) this before, but I’m thinking about adding actual products to my Visual Luxe brand. Party printables, invitations, all of that good stuff. Also, did you know that Visual Luxe did tee shirt design? I’ll post some samples as soon as I clear it with the clients, since some haven’t “officially” launched anything yet.
Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives though? Don’t watch it. Ever. Unless you’re eating something really, really, really awesome. I’ve watched it while eating a delicious, but simple dinner that I prepared. I didn’t even want to eat my food! OMG, the food that he finds at these places! I seriously want everything I see.
I can tell it’s getting warmer, because the ants are back out, in full force. I battled with those things all last spring and summer, and it’s looking like this year will be no different. It’s a problem in general, here in Arkansas, and in my city, but still. *shudders* I HATE ants with a passion. And those little bastards BITE. I can usually keep them at bay, but if you have tips, please do send them my way.
