This week has been quiet on the blog, as we've been finishing up our kitchen, Dustin started a new job and Olivia has been busy at day camp. I thought I'd give a little update on life lately around here!
Last week our cabinets went in and on Saturday our appliances were delivered. On Saturday night I had a fun dinner date with a girlfriend, it was so refreshing to get out of the house and enjoy a long uninterrupted meal and relaxed conversation.
Dustin is waiting to hook up our sink/faucet and dishwasher until our countertops are installed, but my farmhouse sink is sitting in place and it's been so much fun to see everything come together. Even if I can't use it yet, being able to look at it is the next best thing, right?! I've been loving cooking again on our new range and am so thankful to have more options than just the grill + Chipotle ;) I've decided Friday night is definitely going to be pizza night, as I've been waiting 6+ weeks to pick up a take-n-bake and lounge at home in our pjs as a family having pizza.
We've been spending as much time outside as possible with the girls, since the weather lately has been beautiful and summer is flying by. Olivia had the opportunity to do a few different week-long day camps this summer through her preschool program and she has been loving them. This week she had to bring a lunch each day and watching her walk into her classroom, carrying her lunch and wearing her backpack she seems so grown up. I can't believe she'll be in school four days a week in just over a month. Thankfully for me it's only half days ;)
Poppy is now pulling up to stand and starting to take steps around furniture and climb up stairs. She's also cutting (her first) four teeth and always on the move, keeping us all busy. Now that she is almost 11 months, seeing the girls play together has been so much fun. Instead of just playing alongside each other, they are really able to interact and Olivia loves having a playmate whose always around. She has been walking around saying, "This is Poppy, my baby sister. She is so sweet" except sometimes "sweet" sounds like "feet" and we all crack up.
We're looking forward to August and all that we have planned (including finishing the kitchen and the fair!) but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't already excited for Fall. Olivia is so excited to start school and dance and it's definitely our favorite season all-around. I picked up a few of my favorite Fall candles last weekend and can't wait to burn them in our new kitchen and start all our Fall baking and decorating. I love summer but by the end of July, I'm pretty much over the heat and ready for some crisp cool days, caramel apples and sweatshirt weather.
Hope you're all having a great week! I can't wait to share our kitchen reveal soon. For now, there's a peek of the barnwood flooring above. XO
