While internet window shopping for Andy’s birthday (why is that boy so hard to buy for?) I accidentally started shopping for myself. Oops! But here’s what’s currently on my wishlist.
Grace Bonney’s new book:
This RumbaTime Glitter Watch:
Roman Shades for the kitchen:
Fantastic Totokaelo Necklace:
Okay, back to shopping for Andy. I learned very quickly to make him give me a wishlist. When I tried to guess what he’d like it was always a fail! He’s so particular!
Well, I thought I should get on here and do a quick update.
Andy sold his truck:
We also bought a new gas oven, which we love! Our old oven had a glass cooktop that was cracked across the length of it and two of the burners only worked on high. So when Andy suggested we use some of the truck money to invest in a decent stove, I quickly agreed and we managed to cash in on a Labor Day sale.
Andy and Corey have spent the last couple of nights staining the hot tub. It needed some TLC. Now we just have to decide whether to keep it or not. It’s kind of high maintenance, however it has been nice to have. Last year I even had a doctor prescribe that I sit in it for a half hour every night for two hours! Well, she said “hot bath” and I heard “hot tub.” Same diff, right?
Lastly, see the dog run? Obviously we bought it thinking we would use it all the time. However, we never use it. So the plan is to sell it and put a garden shed in its place. Andy’s been drawing up plans for one that will fit all our garden paraphernalia, bikes, and possibly our camping gear. You know, so the garage can be just for manly car stuff, haha. But of course, plans for a garden shed have been added to a long list of to do’s, so it may be a while before one actually materializes.
That’s about it for now. We’ve been busy but we’ve managed some fun time too. We went to see The Help last week and really enjoyed it. In the last month we have also fit in a bike ride, listened to our audio book, tried a new restaurant in Salt Lake, bought tickets to the X96 Big A** Show for Andy’s b-day, went on a drive to Bear Lake and ate at La Beau’s, and on Saturday we’ll be heading up to Logan to visit family.
This lovely lady is my grandma. She is 80 years old today. Hard to believe, right? She’s absolutely gorgeous and I love her so much. I had dinner at her house once and she taught me a great lesson about love. She probably doesn’t even realize that what she said to me that day was so meaningful…but I will never forget.
I love you Grandma. I hope you have a fantastic day.
