A great day


I am pretty sure my week of winter blues is all over. I don't know what makes something inside of you practically feel your love increase for you child/children. Today and yesterday Gabby and I had the best time laughing and playing together. She kept trying to scratch at my black fingernail polish, I finally asked her if she wanted me to paint hers and she shook her head about a million times "yes". She sat perfectly still while I painted her toes for the first time. She loved it.  She is turning into such a little lady. She always puts the phone up to her ear and holds it there with her shoulder... I guess she sees me multi-tasking and tries to mimic. 
Today we got my car washed and had lunch while we waited. She kept shoving forkfuls of food in my mouth and then into hers. It was so funny because she totally gave me the crappy bites! I loved it! She is so funny, I seriously love her guts!

I also got a pretty great phone call from Shaun today, it went a little something like this:
Linds: Hello?
Shaun: Babe? Pick out a lot and a house plan today, or draw one because we are starting to build our house as soon as we can. I am starting our construction loan Monday.
Linds: Are you messing with me?
Shaun: No, If I was I wouldn't get sex for a month!
   {I made that last part up, but that would be the punishment for real!}
Needless to say, I am elated to say the least. It's been almost 2 years since I hung anything on a wall or took a bit of pride in my household. I've been sort of in disbelief for several hours now. 
I also got some new hair. I have been hating my hair (yet agian) so I had Heather put extensions in. I am loving them! This picture is simply for Brianna, as she requested...

Ewwww, SEXY MAMA!! I totally LOVE them! They look great and really make me want to get them in my hair. They make you look alot younger, honestly like 20.
Um, excuse me?! Like Shaun told you you finally get your house and you didn't call me immediately! That is the greatest news, I can't wait for the process to really happen!

Love your hair! Hair extensions are way fun!

p.s. PLEASE! you live in a two million dollar home! Lets hope you take pride in it!

Lindsey said...

I take pride in the home obviously, I just don't try to make it my own, or even decorate it at all, because it's not where we're staying. I didn't mean to sound like I'm not grateful to the amazing home I live in.

1. I can;t believe how old woobs looks in that picture!
2. Like you needed extensions! It looks great though.
3. How nice of Shaun....where's the spot. I wish we could find a spot we like that was decent priced.

The extensions look great, very cute! I think gabby is so cute to!

Yay for a new house, how fun to get to plan it all on your own, and design it yourself. And you will be the first to sit on the toilets, and to stand in the showers. I can't wait for that day!
