To Eat or Not to Eat

Molly's thoughts:

"Should I eat the yogurt or use it as body paint? Ummmm I think body paint."

And in case you were wondering where her parents were: I was not home at the time and Bret was cooking dinner thinking our daughter was being such a good little girl eating a little yogurt so daddy could cook. :)

Need a Stylist?

I can't promise it will turn out the way you like it, okay well I can pretty much guarantee it will not turn out the way you want it but she sure is cute. Since the day Molly could put her hand up to her head she has never let me put a bow or clip in her hair. She refuses and pulls it out. Since her bangs are really starting to get in her face I try my hardest to get one in and I always tell her "it doesn't hurt" and "you look so pretty." Well a couple of weeks ago I let her play with my hair so she could maybe see that it is not that bad and the whole time she fixed my hair she told me "it not hurt you" and "so pretty." She still will not let me put anything in her hair but she has found something else she likes to do and that is brush my hair.

That is the name of the app for the iphone that will let you do fun things when you take pictures. You can switch the lens and film on it to get different styles of pictures. It only has a few to choose from and play around with but look how fun these pictures turned out.

New Office Nook

At one time we contemplated moving but then we decided we are fine where we are and will just make some changes to the house we are in. We have a three bedroom house: the master, Molly's room, and guestroom/hopefully another kid room one day. We have always needed a space for an office work area. Bret is always on the computer working on websites so it is nice for him to be in the same room as us and not shut off to the world in the back guest room, where we originally had the computer desk set up, so we rearranged our living room to look bigger and to utilize the nook that at one time held our entertainment center so that Bret could be in the living room with us. Soon after that he of course got his own mac laptop which left this very small and not very appealing to look at area for me to pay our bills and don't forget blogging and facebooking. Since we are in the mood and making changes to our house we decided that this area should definitely change since everyone that comes in our home sees it. It was actually a very easy and cheap project that we should have done a long time ago.

Here is the before:

AND here is the after:
So much nicer to sit and work at or pay bills!! Plus it looks much nicer and makes the room more organized.

We are also redoing the kitchen but you will have to wait till the whole kitchen is done to see those pictures.

4th of July

Our July 4th weekend was good but busy. We have been talking for a while about redoing our kitchen and since Bret had a four day weekend he decided "why not let's lay the tile in the kitchen." So for fours days we cleared out the old floors, laid down new tile, and grouted. It looks great by the way but you will have to wait for those pictures until the whole kitchen is done. All that being said it was nice to take a little break and grill with family and see some fireworks. Molly was not so sure about the fireworks at first but then she calmed down and would yell "Boom, Boom!" After almost each one went off.

Happy 4th of July!!!
