Fast Summer

We had a fast summer this year, it could be that I don't feel like we really enjoyed the summer because we stayed inside so much because of the heat. Or, maybe time is passing faster for me.

A few things we had go on this Spring/ Summer was I went on an overnight Girls Night Out to Oklahoma City in May. I was only 16 weeks pregnant at that point so traveling was still pretty comfortable. We took off on a Friday afternoon, eat lots of food, and shopped 'til we dropped, then came home on Saturday evening.

Then on June 10th we had the baby gender reveal party at my parents' house. We are having a BOY!!! I am so glad. His name will be Brady Lane.

Then we spent parts of three weeks of June and July in Branson at my parents', Jeremy's parents, and our time shares. We played at the pool some, went to Silver Dollar City some, but mostly stayed indoors where it was cool.

We did go to the Springfield zoo twice this summer. It was just the right size zoo. Brandon enjoyed seeing all of the animals. And I think the grandparents enjoyed the zoo too.

While in Branson, we only go out to eat once or twice so we are happy to be out at a restaurant.

The Branson Landing is a fun place to walk by Lake Taneycomo and to see the shops.

Being out in the sun, wears us out. We made sure a nap was on the agenda most everyday.

VBS is always a highlight of the summer and our theme was Pandamania.

The middle of August my parents, Brandon and I went to the Tulsa Aquarium. And it was great. I loved that it was inside and cool, Brandon enjoyed seeing all of the big, brightly colored fish.

I attempted to make Brady a sweet pea gown with his name on it today, and well, my spacing did not go as planned, but I got it made.

Until then,

New bedroom flooring

I know it doesn't get more interesting than seeing someone's new flooring, but this is what I got. We have lived in our house for almost 13 years and we have never changed the flooring in our bedroom. So, after several months of trying to decide what type of flooring to put in this room, we finally came to the decision of porcelain hardwood looking tile. It is from Interceramic, and the color is Golden Saddle, style Timberlands. It has a real antiqued hardwood floor look and I love it.

So I have the look of hardwood, but the upkeep of tile. A perfect combination for me. Now, we just need to get the furniture moved back in this room so I don't have to sleep in the living room another night.

We have an exciting month coming up with Brandon's 2nd birthday party at the end of the month, so I have a lot of planning to do. It should be fun.

Until then,
