We went to my daughters inlaws for dinner the other night, no special occasion, and right before we sat down to eat, my SIL Alex gave his mom and me a gift bag.....I saod, omg whats this for, and they said just because, now OPEN it....so she and I opened it at the same time, and OMGGGGGGGGG it was a baby toy!!!!!!!!!!! So she and I burst into tears, right at the same exact time.....hugs, and kisses and tears and a VERY happy pair of parents......so by next April I will be the long awaited Grandma....and this is kind of funny...Joe was texting all thru dinner,lolol...and all of a sudden I looked over at him and he was crying.....lololololol.......
Little Cookie, aka monkey girl is growing like a weed and has made herself right at home, and we adore her.
So I have been doing some updating around my house ......here are a few pics. I have always wanted a kitchen island but my kitchen is not huge....but I found this one at Ikea and its perfect, so out with the table and chairs and in with the island.
I also got a new couch, I had a green and red plaid, still like new but dated, very country, and I so wanted to get away from that.
SOOOOO after 25 years of some of the best memories around my old dining room set, we finally got a new one. The other one was very loved but just too country for me now. Iam very happy though that my sister took it and I will get to still have more happy memories around it....lots of love and homework etched into that pine table, and I did cry to see it go. BUT I lOVE my new one, but what am I going to do with that HUGE wall where the hutch used to be????
This was an awesome week, not only am I a Grandma....but Stacy got married and it was a very happy day! She was a beautiful bride and we love you guys! Although I should have known when Chelseys bridesmaid dress hardly zipped up and she did not toast with champagne that something was up!
I let too much time go by with out blogging but as you can see it has been busy around here.
Its still in the 100s here, please send cool breezes, because I know where ever YOU are, its cooler there than here!
