I seem to be doing this a lot of this year – missing in action or in my case missing on the blog. I openly admit that I have not been the best blogger this year. I am trying to get back into it and get better, but as I had said before I value my time with my family a lot at this moment.
This time I didn’t mean intentionally to be missing for this long but things happen right ? The most exciting thing for me was my parents closing on a house 30 miles away from me. They are by no means moving to CA full time but that gives them the option to come and visit me anytime. Plus my mom can be more comfortable staying at her own house when coming to work (she is a successful real estate agent in WA and CA) rather than with me in my two bedroom townhouse.
The house was a short sale but for the most part was in great shape except the yard. The back yard was and still is in horrible condition. We are slowly working on it.
To celebrate my 30th birthday and their new house my parents and brother came over two weekends ago. The weather was amazing and we had a lot of fun. Of course things never go as planned. Since this house is acting as their second home they didn’t have any furniture to furnish the house. They are starting from zero. The week leading to my dad and brother coming over was packed with furniture shopping that had to be exchanged due to defects and of course a last minute we had to buy a dishwasher.
Since then we have been spending our time trying to figure out a plan on how to decorate a 3600sq feet house on a very small budget (which I am very excited about) and trying to get the yard pretty. My daughter is turning out to be quite the little boss as well.
With that happening and trying to entertain an almost 3 year old plus run errands I find myself barely on the computer these days. I know that things will change in June where there will be a little bit more order in my life.
So long story short “Thank you” for being so understanding and continuing to visit my blog. I am off to Seattle for my best friend’s bachelorette party and her wedding. I will definitely share her wedding with you. (as long as I get her Okay first, of course)
