Lazy, Hazy Summer Dayz!

To say that we've been busy is not entirely accurate.

We've actually been enjoying a rather 'slow' month. Mike has been blessed with the month off (minus 6 working days), and, of course, the kids are free from school.
So other than the 'normal' everyday (laundry, cooking, cleaning, shopping), sports for the kids, church and working for me, it's been quite relaxing.
We've taken in the beach, the airshow, the swimming pool. Watched a fair amount of movies, slept in, lounged around....
You get the idea, no?

Never one for 'taking it easy' though, I've made quite a long list of "things to do while it's summer, or heck, just because I want them done" for myself.

I'm slowly working away at the list.
AND I'm quite enjoying it.

Here is the first thing crossed off of my list.
Complete. CHECK!








An old dresser I found for $20 @ the used store. Plans on 'stripping it' and 'painting it' for the re-do of the 'babies' room.




It took a lot longer than I was anticipating, BUT, I really like how it turned out.







Stay tuned for more pics of more projects from "THE LIST!!"

Now I'm off to hopefully cross off something else!

Well done Amy! Looks good. So glad to hear that your family has some time off for some good old R+R this summer. Gee, you are almost living the lifestyle of a teacher (LOL)

PS. Make sure that Mike checks the mail at the church
