Hello friends and Happy Monday!!! Ever feel like you have so many thoughts rolling around in your head and you just don't know where to begin to get them organized? I am having one of those days, thus, my random post to jot them all down.
Life has been pretty crazy lately, I feel like I am in constant "catch up mode" instead of just enjoying the ride. It all started in April when I was sick and in bed for three weeks. I am finally caught up at work and still feel like I am getting caught up on personal stuff. You should see my to-do lists! Yikes! Hopefully life will slow down here soon.
One thing keeping us busy this past month is showing our house to prospective buyers. No, our house is not for sale, however, our builder has actually been doing quite well lately and business is picking up. Since they are still in the process of building homes in our neighborhood, a sales center sits in the entrance of our development to welcome perspective buyers. The sales representative, Chris, has contacted us three times this month to see if we would be interested in showing our home to families interested in our floor plan. I love meeting potential neighbors and, of course, to help our builder sell homes. It's been fun getting to know the families who are interested in building in our development. It has also kept me motivated to keep my house relatively clean! I really hope all three families decide to build, they were all so nice and it was so much fun showing them our home.
I attended my first Cleveland area Blogging event yesterday at Legacy Village. Legacy Village is one of Cleveland's most popular shopping and dining establishments. It's all outdoors and is one of my favorite places to shop, especially in the warmer weather months. I had such a wonderful time and met so many talented Cleveland Bloggers. I had gotten to know a few of them already through their blogs and on Twitter. It was nice to have the opportunity to finally meet several of them in real life! I plan on writing up a blog post just on my experience.
Isn't this picture of Jillian so cute? I think she looks so grown up here!! Where is my baby girl? Jeff and I tackled a huge to do list this weekend just by going to Toys R Us. We had several items that we have been wanting to return and just couldn't find the time to do it. It was nice to finally get this out of the way over the weekend. I also wanted to buy Jillian some new toys. I feel like she is already growing out of several of the toys she received for her Birthday and Christmas. I also feel like she bores easily with her toys. Lately, she likes following me around the house and is more curious about what I am doing and barely touches her toys. Anyone else experiencing this with your little ones? Do you rotate toys? Buy a few toys at a time? I would also love to hear what toys your one and two years old are loving right now. I felt like I just wandered around Toys R Us for an hour, not really sure what to buy her.
I changed up my blog design a bit this weekend. I added some green to the design and removed some of the pink. I also changed a few fonts and swapped out my header to one with pictures. Thoughts? I have really enjoyed teaching myself HTML and blog design. I feel like I am learning more and more every day. I would love to hear your feedback and what you think.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
