Simple days: teamwork.









It's summer and boy has it been heating up! This weekend we stayed in. We joined in the baby's room and painted as a family. Our daughter helped with excitement. We played some music and chatted about our plans for when her little sister arrives. Before we painted we had a  butter cream -light yellow color on the walls. It was a color I chose during my husband's last deployment in the Army.

Of course with a toddler, painting took two full days. In between we snacked on kettle corn and oranges while watching a movie. With this heat I've been watering my plants early morning and later in the evenings. After our time spent painting we all freshened up and enjoyed a nice dinner. It felt so nice to sit and relax.

Our days were simple. Teamwork at its best! I'm happy to say we finished the painting.

How did you spend your time this weekend?

    How exciting to prepare for a new little baby and have her sister help! You guys must be so excited! It's been so hot here in Utah, so we've stayed in and watched the World Cup and are preparing for the fourth in at Mt. Rushmore. xoxo Martina

    1. Marizta, aw thank you. It sure is exciting getting things ready. Oh and you know when I talk about the heat, I often think of you. I remember where you are at and suddenly I don't want to complain much, lol. I should be okay with this weather, since I lived in Arizona for so long. I guess it's the heat and pregnancy combined. Lol ;) And thank you on the comment on my daughter and her curls. -We love them too! I hope you're having a wonderful Monday friend.
