sister...



what i would i do without her?
i seriously dont know...
she is so good to me, too good in fact.
i love her so much and cant imagine who i would be without her.

i went over to her house on saturday, we had plans to get a pedicure... i wanted to go somewhere clean and nice like a spa or salon and everything was booked, so guess what sister did? she gave me the best pedicure i have ever had in my life.
she massaged my legs and feet for what felt like an hour and even gave me a manicure.

i'm serious, she is too good to me.

i love her so much.

the basement...

thank you so much for all of the nice comments on the nursery... i of course love it, so happy you guys like it too :)

here are a few photos of the basement we just finished. actually, it is just the living room and guest room... the studio and bathroom are still not done (my concrete counter top was cracked in transportation)

a few things i love about the basement...

the green walls :)

i finally have my photos on display!

it is totally kid friendly, leather couches that are low, soft carpet, and we hung the shelf so little hands cant reach anything on it.

it is so nice and cool down there even on the hottest days....

and as you can see in the bottom photo estee loves to watch t.v down there!!!

anyways i spent alot of time picking out everything and i am so happy with the outcome...
(oh, and keep in mind the shutters are ordered but not here yet... they take FOREVER!!!)

finally picked up my camera...

it's been a while since i picked up my camera... this afternoon i felt the urge. sure, estee was a bit on the grubby side and she was barefoot in the garage but it felt really good to do what i love, for me, for fun.

oh and even though the day is over i have to say happy father's day to my husband, dad and father in law... i am so blessed to have these men in my life. really.

my dad was here all week, it was so great to have him and i was sad to see him go this morning (especially because he is in vegas with ann on our annual daddy daughter trip) what a lucky girl i am to have him for a dad... he is so loving and generous, in fact he did all my laundry while he was here which was no easy task i am embarrassed to say!

the last photo is for you dad... she may just end up being that golf prodigy we imagined, she couldn't put the golf ball (or club) down all day!

almost done...

so close i can taste it!!!

my mom left today and the nursery is almost done... just a few little finishing touches. i am so excited about what she created with the beautiful fabrics i had picked, she is so talented and never ceases to amaze me. i will post photos soon.

for now though here is estee bug running like crazy through the water at gateway, she really didn't want to get wet but couldn't avoid it a few times...

oh, and a new little baby will be making her entrance in less than three weeks... can you believe it!!!!

more from the party...

i cant figure out why i hardly got any of the guests (there were 30 people there) guess i was too busy following estee around trying to get her to look at the camera.

i cant complain though... i did get the one of ann and my mom that may be one of my favorites to date...

too many changes...

finally this morning estee's new bedroom set was delivered, i have been a little nervous about how she would take to the big girl bed but she seems to be doing great... in fact she is napping in it right now.

all morning she would crawl in it curl up with her "boggie" (blanket) and say "my new bed" seems she has been ready for this for a while...

i will post photos of her room when it is all finished, the new bedding is on its way and i have alot of pictures to hang.
