Sweet Sunday

Ingredients for a dreamy Sunday afternoon:

A warm slow Texas sunset
Comfy t-shirts
All-star rock band without all the ego
Baby Boy blazing his own trail on a trike
Happy blooms
Hot Dogs all around
Lots of ketchup
Fresh chalk and baby blue eyes
Silly girls
Sweet friends
It was the best kind of day
and I loved every minute of it!

Love you Seprish Clan.

Here is a glimpse into our daily grind.
Not much of a grind...
more like a float.

We do what we want when we want.
Our only commitment is to soccer on Saturdays at 2.
Other than that we hang.

We go out,
random trips to Target,
almost daily outings to the gym,
and soon enough, daily swims at the pool.
But for now, we hang.
And a favorite spot of theirs is our bed,
preferably right after I make it,
and no,
they don't re-make it for me....
I usually don't re-make it either.
Once a day is enough for me!

Typical day....
"where's Riv??"
He found one of Daddy's head-lamps

*evil laugh*
Look Sis!!

Gotta check out my ankle
Oh, wait, there is an "ouchie"
Gotta itch it.
Now we are in business

Letting sis in on the action, or lack thereof
She made it change colors!!
Under the covers we go.
Settling down
So dreamy.

I have struggled, and still struggle with our "float".
Don't get me wrong...
it is dreamy.
but it is tough too.
Paige decided to bite Riv out of the blue the other day.
Paige, my 4 and a half year old.
Guess who now discovered how to bite??
(When he has never done that before...)
Thank you Paige!
Kids are tough.
Staying at home is tough.

But it is amazing that these two toughies are mine.
And I am their Mom.
I am lucky.
Oh so lucky!

Home Sweet Apartment

Inquiring minds want to know....
What does your apartment look like????
So, here you have it.
A smallish photo tour of our sweet little home.
It was a blessing we found such a nice spot
in our price range, in the nick of time.


This is the view from the front door...

We have all of 3.25 windows in the whole apartment, and it is very dark
so forgive the awful artificial lighting...mkay!
And our walls are yellow...
your eyes aren't deceiving you!

We like to pretend we live in a cave.

The door off to the side leads to our bedroom/bathroom.


View while washing dishes

I like the floors

Welcome to the jungle!
(note: no cleaning of any kind was done before snapping these. That's how you know we are real good friends...I know you won't judge. It feels weird when there aren't 3 pairs of shoes strewn about...really.)

Groovy bunk-bed lights courtesy of my Mom.
The kids think they are the coolest!
Artwork done by the babies.
Paige's is on top and Riv's on the bottom.
We like to paint!
Reading corner
Kids bathroom
Riv brushes his teeth/sucks on training toothpaste at least 3 times a day...
I think this is more good than bad??
Our bedroom/office/dumping ground/gym/studio

Our bathroom.
Does that mirror look familiar??
All 30/30 photos were taken there.
All our shoes are hung up on that door and behind the bathroom door.
We have to put them somewhere!!
And there you have it...
We have 8 months left here and then (fingers crossed)
we can find a great home to rent for the other 3.25 years we have left here!
That is the plan anyway.
We need a little yard,
We need a little more space.
We need one more closet.
That's all.
