A new bed and dreams of a new roof over our heads.

Hello friends! Happy May to all of you!

Life has been busy around here…finishing up school, spring soccer, enjoying our beautiful weather…

And to add to all the fun, we have been half-heartedly-house-hunting.  Wait, that’s not right. Half-heartedly would mean  that our whole hearts wouldn’t hurt every time we don’t get a house we’re in love with. Lets make that whole-heartedly, half-financially house shopping. Our new plan of attack: get pre-approval letter before we look at another house. This market is just too darn hot to be looking without the funds ready to make a fast offer.

As with any stage of life, buying a house brings many lessons and choices with it. I find myself facing the decision daily whether or not I’m going to honor David and his amazing wisdom and patience, or just plow forward on my own. Its exciting to think that at the end of this journey we are going to have  the perfect house for us, as well as an even stronger marriage. I’m so thankful for my wise husband…remembering that he is wise has been a constant exercise these past few weeks.

Its also garage sale season!

Can I get an amen?

I have found some really fun things this year…

This cute little Big Bird record player is a combination of two of my favorite things: Sesame Street and raving. Our next black light party is going to rock.

I also found a great globe that the girls love to play with, bunches of gorgeous milk glass, and a new bike for Bella.

But I think the most used garage sale find this year has to be our new comforter. We had been using a big blanket for over a year and besides being boring, drab and too small, it clashed with everything in our room. I hadn’t realized what an eye-sore it was until put the new one on and the whole family swarmed the bed wanting to cuddle and snuggle. After catching up on our cuddles, the girls just had to jump on it.

And I just had to take pictures of them jumping on it.

Bella is in a bit of a Tangled phase right now meaning she is a little more princess-like than the other three…at least for today.

And Dayly would rather talk than jump. In fact I think she would rather talk than do pretty much anything else.

Yay for garage sales!!!

Blessings Friends! Thanks for reading my blog!

    I laughed out loud.

  2. Your girls are adorable. I always wish I was into garage sales, but really aside from the driving by and something catching my eye (which hasn’t happened in years) I’ve never been. But I do love me a good deal!!

  3. Great blog Gip! I would have to add that selling a house is as much a martial challenge as the buying. I’m SO ready to enter the next phase of the challenge! The pictures were perfect timing! Love it!~
