We are officially moved in at Janice's house, and out of the condo. We will close on the condo tomorrow!! :)
View of paint in downstairs at our house...great room, kitchen, and dining room are all painted this color, "Beach Haven" by Benjamin Moore.

Brett climbed on the roof for this shot :) They are almost done with the rock on one of the chimneys.

This is the color upstairs..."Marble White". Yes, we played it safe and neutral with the color for now. We'd like to get our color from the decorating we do.
this is the color of the stain we have on all the bathroom cabinets...
our master bedroom, which we LOVE. :) Just looks so relaxing and calming... :)
View of bedroom from the great room...
Kitchen...cabinets will be "antiqued" and we will have venetian gold countertops....with 3 bronze light pendants over the island....We'll need to add some color in here too :)

In other "news"......had an appt. for Miss Anna Ruth last week and was told she is healthy and a very active little girl. :) Music to my ears......

We have much to give thanks for! Brett and I are be content whatever the circumstances.
Our condo neighbor made these sweet hats for Anna Ruth :). I can't wait to see them on our girl!

We had another ultrasound today because our dr. had some concerns over the last one. Turns out, everything checked out just fine :) and we got a great report on Miss Anna! Praise, Praise, Praise God. Huge relief.

This is the current stae of our condo.....packing each night! Our last night in the condo will be Friday or Saturday...

My mom is making this quilt for Anna Ruth :).

Sunday we celebrated Seth, Momma, and Daddy's birthday with an Italian feast at my parents house, complete with sweets, kiddos, and exploring and playing in the back yard afterwards. This is Caleb, "climbing a tree."
My mom is a ping-pong pro!Such huge smiles from Malachi!
Nathan helping open a present!

Good conversation....
Jana, "Super-mom"
These two adore each other :)...........and like to wrestle too!
24 weeks!

Birthday boy :)

Grandma, Becca, Jana, and I all made freezer meals to exchange at the party. I made these DELICIOUS cookies :). They are the Alton Brown Food Network recipe.....made with white chocolate chips, as well as peanut butter chips and chocolate chips.

I also made creamy taquitos, from the fantastic cooking site

To God be the glory!
Our condo sold.
We have 2 weeks to move out.
We'll live with Janice (my mom-in-law) for a month or two until our house is done.
We feel like 945455 tons have been lifted off our shoulders.
Praise God for answering our prayers!

Hot Springs Getaway

Brett and I traveled in the GORGEOUS, heaven-sent weather to Hot Springs this weekend!

First stop: Oaklawn Horse Races.
We won enough to pay for our house.

Just kidding. :)

Next stop: Downtown Hot Springs

We stopped to get a toffee cookie to share. DIVINE. delicious. mouth-watering. I could go on and on.
I think I will open up "Sara's Sweet Shop" in Fayetteville. We have no candy/fudge/chocolate store in town, and I love sweets. :) What a perfect match!

We even got to listen to a concert while we ate our treat! :)

This sign looked like an authentic Italian sign. Sigh...... :)

The evening ended with a romantic dinner at the Arlington piano music even!

We woke up Sunday to The Three Stooges :)
Does it get funnier or better than that?
This weekend was F-U-N.
