So far, Stella's never met a train she didn't love so she FREAKS with excitement when she hears it. Small town is fun. However, I realized last week that I sincerely miss the employees at Stony Brook HyVee. While I HAVE noticed that the Gretna Walmart is much less disgusting than the others, I really took for granted their helpful smile in every aisle. I mentioned before that there is ONE teeny tiny grocery store in town and I've made one trip there for one item. I'm almost positive I won't do that again. There were 3 people in there (including me and the one employee) and they watched my every move.
*Hi, other 2 people at McKinny's! Yes, I already cooked that box of Mac and Cheese I bought on April 21st.
We are still settling in and unpacking rather slowly. Well. Slowly in my eyes. My family thinks I'm a ninja so they would probably tell a different tale. Sam's room is up and running and it's pretty studly if I do say so myself. The girls' rooms are 90% complete and that remaining 10% is driving me nuts. Stella's room is a shabby chic theme and Holly's is not pink. Every time I look in Holly's room, I'm reminded that she's not little anymore. She's outgrown pink and has a giant mirror above her dresser for taking selfies. I mean for getting ready.
Because it's totally out of my comfort zone to show you my unfinished projects, I'll start with Sam's man cave. Here's a quick basement tour where you'll find the play station always left on and the toilet seat always up:
|Hey, Son! See that TV mount? You're not getting one. Sweet dreams!|
|Those are some big empty walls. I promise I won't leave them like that.|
|The man bath|
P.S. Hi, new neighbors! Thanks for reading. :)
P.P.S. Sam is killing it on the field this year. There is a dad of a boy on his team that is taking AMAZING pics at every game. I can't even pretend to take credit for these photos. I know you're on the edge of your seat so I'll share a few of my faves. Also, their team's home field is 20 seconds from our house and that is obviously why it backs up to a corn field. It's precious.
Maybe now I can fill those empty frames in his room!
