summer in these parts // updates & pictures

july is almost over... how??  the days are just flying by.  i'm in the market for a kindergarten backpack for parker & should probably start thinking about some sort of preschool or regular playgroup for elliot because fall is just around the corner.  boo!

we are loving these long summer days.  so much time spent just hanging out & trying to stay out of the crazy heat & evenings spent running through sprinklers or playing with the hose.

i've had another crazy run of motivation to get our house set up.  my mom is coming to visit for a couple weeks next month & has never seen the house so i want it to look good!  we've been here almost a year & most of the walls are still bare.  i'm afraid of commitment.  when you have 100 year old plaster walls hanging things is pretty scary.  i use a lot of 3M velcro strips where i can but the bigger things that require legit anchors take lots more planning before hanging.  it's coming along though.  hopefully i will have some pictures of completed walls soon.

i'll also be painting our bathroom soon & hopefully finishing up our cool industrial-ish reclaimed wood bench we're working on.  but there's always something.  it's fun though!  i've spray painted more things in the last couple weeks than i can count & it's just so gratifying to see things come together.

i really do love our house.  it may be small in places & quirky & have a non-flowing 100 year old layout but there is just so much character inside these walls & i'm so grateful we get to live here.

with that, here are a few pictures of our lazy summer days from the last few weeks.  and house update pictures to come soon!


  1. Don't you love those house spurts? I am having one now too because my brother comes home from his mission in a month and hasn't seen the house. I don't want to be giving him the "here are all my unfinished projects" tour, so I'm hoping to finish up some things that have been on the list FOREVER. We need to get together at the water park at least one more time before school starts!!!
