At Last...

Well... I'm back. I'm sure by now I have very few readers left out there, but for those that have stuck with me, here's a new post with lots of pictures for your viewing pleasure :) Unfortunately, I won't post all of the pictures of our place because I still have some "decorating" to finish. But I will give you a sneak peek at the main part of the house. Just ignore the big, blank dining room wall please. I have to paint the canvases that are going to go on that wall and just haven't had the time or the inspiration to do so lately. I'll post pictures of my "creations" as soon as I get them finished. So without further ado, here are the "BEFORE and AFTER" shots of the main floor....

So there you have it... so far anyway. There are still things I'd like to change (such as getting new living room furniture, etc... but we can't do it all at once so I just have to be patient!) We're definitely enjoying it though and its really feeling like "home." We're also loving the fact that McD's & DQ are right across the street and have enjoyed quite a few "treats" already :)

Another nice thing about our neighbourhood is that there is a great little park just down the street. We had Naomi and the kids over for dinner last week and took a stroll to the park. I think Konrad really enjoyed it... and secretly, I think Uncle Jon did too :)

Seriously... too cute!


Some quality Uncle/nephew time...

"Hmmm... what's this?"

The Queen of the castle...


Its been a busy month and we'll be finishing it off with more "busyness." My good friend Izzy is getting married this weekend and has asked me to sing at the ceremony (a true honour!) so we'll be heading to Washington on Friday afternoon for the rehearsal/dinner. I'm really looking forward to this wedding as it will be a chance to reconnect with lots of my "long lost" Capernwray NZ friends. Plus Izzy is going to be a VISION of beauty and the whole wedding itself will, I'm sure, be incredible.

But for now, I need to go feast on the unbelievable dinner my wonderful husband has made for me. I came home from work to a surprisingly delightful smell. And there on the counter, slowly simmering in the crock pot, was a roast with potatoes and veggies. Mmmm... such a nice surprise. I just love him! Then I'm off to enjoy a little Starbucks with my wonderful sister Viv. Should be a good evening...
