The ups of life

The more positive side:

San Diego trip with my sister in law and her family- so much fun!

We stayed on the beach,

View from our room:

got to run into my brother and his wife,

and got plenty of beach time and relaxation time!

It was nice to get my beach time, especially since it rained for our whole anniversary trip and I never got my beach day.

Kendall had a great time too :)

Haylee got a ridiculous horse kite that made us pretend we didn't know her for a little....hehee

and Camille had a beautiful butterfly kite.

Our couch/sectional is finally here!!! I am going to put the side table and lamp together before I take a picture to show you all. But let me say it turned out exactly PERFECT for us! We love it sooo much.

Since I helped my mom and grandma move, I ended up getting a lot of {hand-me-down} furniture for the house so I will have to arrange it all and put up a picture of that as well.

For some reason I am really good at putting up the "before" pictures of a project but am horrible at taking afters and putting them on here...not to worry! After pictures coming for:

the small table my grandpa made

the rolltop desk my sister gave me

and the trunk that belonged to my great grandmother

I suppose I still consider them all a {work in progress} which is probably why I haven't posted "after"s yet.

I have the opposite problem. I'll start a project and forget to take a before until I'm halfway done and start thinking to myself how great and drastically different it looks...and then it's too late. haha. :P Anyway...looks like the trip was awesome! I love that pic of you on the beach. It's adorable....you're adorable. :D
