Here's a shot of all the kids with their Grandpa:
Monday I went to the dreaded Wally World for groceries and we had Financial Peace University in the evening. This week's lesson was about how to find a bargain (of all the things Dave Ramsey teaches - this is NOT an area where he can teach me something new - ha).
Tuesday we played outside a lot - GORGEOUS day! Bailey had a track meet and we had a home improvement guy come to look a few things over and give us estimates. Big on the list is a front porch area. Our front steps are pulling away and it just needs fixed. Our home is a 1950-something (I think) very FLAT FRONT home...and it desperately needs some dimension. SO....since the front steps need to be replaced anyway....here is my vision:
And here's what it currently looks like:
Obviously we aren't going to have such a fancy door and probably not as many beautiful details - but the first picture is the IDEAL...and then we go from there. We don't have an estimate yet...but I'm guessing it'll be a lot higher than I imagine it should be. Hopefully it comes in affordable though so I can say - BEGONE UGLY AWNING! Hello beautiful porch entry! (note: please notice the tulips on the right - beauitful in-person...and purchased VERY inexpensively at Aldi last year....yeah, Aldi!)
I also made a quick run to the mall/Target for another tower fan because I REFUSE to turn the air on in May...at least in early May. =-) Anyway - The Children's Place is just steps from Target...and they had a killer sale online (only 6-9 months sizes left) - so I thought I'd see if the actual store was having a good sale too. Well....not really..but I was able to score these cute shoes for only $6.50! You can't really tell from the picture - but they are very sparkly! I got these for Grant at Target - but they were actually clearance in the store...so cute with an orange tee today!And then here we are at Wednesday. Sigh. Today I don't have any really big plans - more playing outside...more laundry..yada yada yada. However - With all the nice weather...it has me thinking about summer...and how I'm going to have to find a non-maternity swimsuit (EEEEEEEEEEEK!). I hate that...but the kids should be able to go to the pool...so Mom has to suck it up (and in - big time) and wear a suit. So I'll be hunting online for options today - will post a few and hope you all weigh in on the best one for me. (yeah - I'm talking to you two people that read).
Have a great day - go enjoy the Spring weather!!
