Tickled Pink No. 103




How is everyone's summer?
We have been house hunting - I used to think that was fun...but not so much anymore (it is really the fixing up our house to sell that is stressful)...just trying to make all the right house decisions  - so much to think about...and I happen to really LOVE my current house (faults and all).


We have also been saying good-bye to friends.
A friend and her family are moving to American Samoa...It has stirred up all sorts of feelings in me...mainly about how nice it would be to whisk away and enjoy a very different lifestyle with far less material and technological interruptions.


My son turns 11 in a few days...How the HECK did that happen!


My 4 year old (almost five) lost her first tooth
(and the second one is just about to go too)
You can check out my Tooth Fairy Troubles - what have I done!




My UGLY master bathroom is "this close" to NOT being ugly anymore.
YEAH!
I will be brave and post photos soon...just beware the before's are (shudder) BAD!


I also had fun at the park watching a kid use his slackline.
He was nice enough to let all the kids try...what FUN.
I totally WANT one.
Like seriously NEED one!

One more thing...
Dear Google/Blogger...Of course 
my words don't match the word verification (for the tenth time)...YOU are crazy! Can you make word verification any more awful?




Be sure to visit Katy to see her features...
and I promise to get back on track...
and maybe even return some emails!


HAPPY SUMMER!

  8. House hunting is only fun when you don't ACTUALLY have to buy anything. I love looking at houses, now that I have finally bought one.. no pressure.

    Good luck. I hope you find a great new house!

  11. Thank you so much for the love!! I am sorry the house search is STILL going on. You will find the perfect home in the perfect community, and it will be here in my town! No, that would be a bit of a commute for your husband. Happy birthday to your son, and sorry for the growing up and losing teeth to your daughter. Oh these are big milestones to have coincide. Thank you for hosting such a fabulous party where people can link up and share anything they have created. I think that is something to applaud for. Have a great weekend. -K
