What I've Been Up to Lately...

I thought I'd take a few minutes to tell you guys what I've been up to lately!


First of all...in case some of you were wondering about the house building situation...here's the deal: Since they still haven't actually started building our house yet...there is no way we will be able to close by June 30th, which means...no first-time home buyer's tax credit for us. Yep. It stinks...really bad...oh well. But there is good news! The whole situation is such a blessing! We were able to incorporate a lot of upgrades into the house...so it's going to be really nice...and just like we want it. I'm really excited! I went by the lot yesterday...and this is what it looks like now:


Trees cleared...almost ready to start building! So that's exciting. Hopefully they will be ready to build in the next two-three weeks.

Moving on...

On my off day the past three weeks, I have been laying out by the pool trying to get some sun since I am super pasty. I have four words for you...
THE SUN HATES ME.
Yep. Either I get no sun at all...or I burn. Two weeks ago, my right arm got burnt. That's it. Just my right arm. What's up with that? Yesterday, I actually managed to get some sun...only burned a little, and it's surprisingly pretty even.
My friend Crystal and I yesterday:

 She has such a great tan right now. (I won't reveal her secret) Haha. And look at me...all pasty. It's okay though...I'd rather radiate my pastiness than burn and peel. :)

My parents' house is the most gorgeous place for laying out by the pool. Palm trees...beautiful flowers...feels like paradise.


Have you guys ever seen/heard of a hummingbird bumble bee? They are quite possibly the cutest things ever. They look like miniature hummingbirds. This one (I'm so sad to say) was dead:


These on the other hand...were alive, and it looked like they were trying to get drunk off the pollen in these flowers! So funny...


After taking these pictures...Ian came over to get some sun too...and we decided that since Lilly has never been in the pool, we would see how she liked it.
She hated it.
And I think she hates us now for being the evil people who put her in the water.
Oh well...I got some adorable pictures out of it!


So that's pretty much what I've been up to in the last couple of weeks! Oh...except for this...It's what we do when we get bored at work:


We lock ourselves in kennels and then see if we can get out. Haha. :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week!

Want to learn how to do scalloped photo borders like mine? Go here! Thanks Katrina!

Sorry to hear about the tax credit. We are still waiting for our check to come in and we bought our house in December! But you will be in your house before you know it and it will be beautiful. great photos! How do you get the cool borders?

Good luck with the house! Also, I am a burner. I burst into red flames when out in the sun. I have come to accept my pale skin, and just go with the blinding glow.

Cole - It's okay! We are still very excited! Oh and I learned how to do the photo borders on puglypixel.com. She has some awesome tutorials!

Robyn - Don't you hate burning? It hurts really bad haha. It's okay to be pale... :)
