Potty Training.

After some trial and failure a few months back.
We put potty training on hold.

And we are now on full swing
after getting tips from a few people
I decided to start out trying Megan's advice...

Last night it worked,
she pooped in the potty 
and tried to make it there to pee.

I was proud of her, very proud.

And today...

...naked again.

Only it's not going as well
It's just past noon 
and we've had two accidents
she didn't even try to make it to the potty
just stood there yelling "No No No"
as she peed all over the floor.

It's going to take some time, I know.
 luckily we've got new 
hardwood flooring, easily cleaned

A Craigslist Purchase.

.the best one I've ever made.

During the process of painting....
Valspar in Mediterranean

Best Chairs. Ever.

Chairs: $25 
Paint: $15 (two cans per chair)
Total: best $40 ever spent

The maroon chair pads came with the chairs
and were brand new, the owners bought them right before they moved
and then found they didn't have space for the chairs.

The pillows were made by me 
and had been just sitting around
waiting for a perfect spot. 

and now I just need to find a fun table to replace
the boring white one.

I heart Faces. "Purple"

This week's theme is the color purple.
And as I thought about it, I remembered 
this picture of my little girl on the stairs
in her purple and butterflies pjs.

Check out the other awesome entries

A Summery Shower.

My little {and only} sister 
gets married in just a few weeks.
Which makes me all kinds of emotional
 just to think about it.

We {the bridesmaids} threw her a shower
a few weeks ago.
{I'm terrible about posting things in a timely fashion}

The invite:

The shower:

This was done by one of Elizabeth's oldest friends, Allison.
The picture is one my mom took of Elizabeth and her fiance Michael
at an aquarium on a trip to Virginia.

Isn't it AMAZING!

An off kind of a day.

It's just one of those days.
I feel a bit off...

But here's a little look at what I did this weekend...

A cold day in July.

Or at least in Kenzie's world.

She could have cared less about 
the actual upper 90s-100 degree weather
 she wanted to wear her fur lined hooded vest,
and drive her car.

Luckily, we drove indoors.

She looks so much older here. 
Makes me sad a little bit.

Happy 4th of July!!

We are so blessed by our freedoms.
I hope I remember that every day from now on.
Not just on a day like today.

Chimney Rock.  Summer 2010.
