I’m exhausted! For the past two weeks my husband and I have been hard at work fixing up our new little town home. We want to get everything in order before the baby comes and before he goes back to school. It’s been great to have him home so much and Carly has sure been in heaven playing with daddy all day. She’s kind of turned into a little daddy’s girl. Her favorite thing to do with him (besides going on the swing) is to have him sit with her at the bottom of the steps while she just jabbers up a storm to him. Seeing them together just melts my heart and makes me so happy. Nick is such a good father and I’m so excited to see him develop a relationship with our second little girl.
Anyway, our home projects have included repainting our kitchen cabinets… from black to white! It took many coats of primer and paint but it looks amazing and so much brighter. We also installed a fan in our bedroom which took us almost two hours to figure out but has felt amazing the last few nights (remember how I’m now 8 months pregnant?). And the project we just barely finished last night was painting all our 1970’s plain brown doors white and installed new knobs and hinges. It’s amazing how a layer of paint can really change the look of things and make them look all new and clean. I can’t wait to show you the before and after pictures!
Oh and this smoothie staring you in the face is super yummy. We live off smoothies during the summer time and this one is deliciously refreshing. The yogurt and banana make it creamy and sweet which is just what you want in a smoothie. Perfect for a quick breakfast or snack on these hot days. Enjoy!
