Life Lately

Although I got quite a bit done around the house last weekend, looking back it doesn't feel like I accomplished very much. Does anyone else ever feel that way?

One thing I did manage to get done was painting this bright bathroom a more neutral grey. This is the upstairs guest bathroom/Ben's bathroom. IRL it was more of a salmon color.

After a few coats of grey paint, all that's left is for J and I to agree on a shower curtain and then I'll post the big bathroom reveal.

For the past week, Ben has been taking swimming lessons and learning to use his "ice cream scooper hands" in the water. 

Obviously he has the jumping off part down.

Remember how one of my July goals is to actually complete some Pinterest projects I've pinned? Well look at this little beauty. I had J cut off a section of a 2x4 and I painted it a pretty neutral color I had laying around the house. I wanted to make sure the color didn't distract from the knobs which I bought at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. They were between $3.99-$5.99 before the discount. 

Sunday night we visited J's grandma. It was the first time being at her house since grandpa had passed away and we definitely missed having him there. To keep herself company, Gigi got herself a little kitty. Meet SweetPea. Although grandma is still unsure whether the cat is a girl or boy.

Ben didn't understand why the cat didn't want to come to him. It couldn't possibly be because he was chasing the poor cat around and wanted to squeeze it. 

Happy Tuesday!
