Just Another Seaside Weekend

On Thursday, which is the last workday of the week here, we saw a sign downstairs that every Thursday they will be having a kids movie at the beach club right downstairs from our condo.
So of course, we go.
It was Bee movie.  John and I didn't watch it, we chatted and enjoyed the sea breeze, and Amalia slept through it.
We say all the time that we don't know how we could ever adjust to living somewhere else.
Gym a few feet from our door, mini mart and restaurant and beachclub downstairs, pool and beach, perfect weather all year, gourmet grocery store a 3 minute walk to next door, subway that delivers, the grocery store even delivers!
I have gotten spoilt. We all have.
When the kids get their allowance they run down to the mini mart for a lollipop.
Amalia enjoys our daily walk to the gourmet grocery for a fruit tart.
Every one on the walk knows and loves her.
All the security in our building, the mini mart cashiers, the workers in the grocery.
I love this little community here.
And we will never get tired of the beach... ever.



And I am very happy to announce that I made it to the craft stores this past week!
Yay!
And have gotten straight to work on some halloween projects, which I am very excited to share with you all.
Sometimes I think that when you are limited is when you truly have to be creative.
This is what is happening now.
 Crafting supplies are very limited here and I feel as though my hands are tied, but I am making it through and very excited about the results I am getting so far.

So be on the lookout for my new work!

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.


 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!










Settling Into Spring

Georgia has been absolutely beautiful for spring so far.
I love almost aspects.
The blue skies, the greenery, the flowers, being outside, having our waterfall back on, nights outside and so much more.
I noticed today that my seeds are starting to sprout in our garden and that makes me incredibly excited and proud. I even love the rain and the storms, every thing is so cozy and not cold!

And best of all, having friends and family to enjoy it with.

The parts we could do without is the pollen and i85 going up on flames.
