Some Candle Love

On a recent expedition to Pottery Barn I snapped a picture of a display they had created. I saw it and fell instantly in love, then I thought...dude, I can totally do that myself! So check out my creation for the new and still unfinished pergola...

I'm pretty sure it cost like 1/10th the cost of the Pottery Barn version.

Random Stuff...

I forgot to mention that my crazy awesome husband got me my long awaited point and shoot camera for Mothers Day! Actually he gave it to me on his birthday (May 18) because I was in Georgia for Mothers Day. I'm pretty sure I got a better present on Alan's birthday than he did. This baby is all that I dreamt of and more...Lumix LX3, I LOVE YOU!

Last week Lula, Tate and I went to school to have lunch with Tanner first and then Taylor. It was field day and it rained hard all day...actually it's rained hard for the past two months! We are all feeling pretty soggy and cranky waiting for summer to start.

Speaking of summer and sun. We did have a wonderfully sunny day this last Saturday, it was like manna from heaven. We took full advantage and busted out the kiddy pool. Lula was crazy happy. My Mom, Sister and nephews came out to visit and we had a really great day.

Yesterday however it hailed so hard it looked like rain.

Lula and the bookcases

We finally got our bookcases up in the loft so the books could be unpacked. I still need to paint and "pretty it up" but I was going through book withdrawls and the bookcases needed to get done. My kids have never lived without books at their fingertips at all times. It's the way it should be!
Lula and Tate have been hanging out there a lot reading and playing and it just warms my heart. Yesterday Lu was takng a bath and while I was in another room cleaning up she snuck out of the tub and this is how I found her...
