Dress of the week May 15th

Good  morning  Ladies!!    How   has  your  week  been ?  We   have  had  some  lovely  spring  weather  this  week.  There   was  sunshine  everyday except  for  yesterday   where  it   was   overcast  and rainy,  but  we  need  them  days  also! 

On Saturday early there was a bunch of chores that I attended to at home. Then in the afternoon we started a back burner project , ceiling painting !! There was prep to do before any paint was applied , the walls had to be protected with plastic and the floor somewhat. We are getting new carpet on the floors so they don’t need too much covering. We used a roller with a long handle , it is harder than I thought painting over your head ! We got one room completed and are going to tackle more today. Wish me luck!

For   early Mothers  day   there  was   breakfast  in  bed  and a  new  sterling  silver heart  chain  gifted!!   Then  we  went to  church  for  10:30  am , it is  good to  be  back in  person!  In the  afternoon  we   surprised  the  kids  with  a  waterpark  stay  Sunday into  Monday!  We   found a discounted   coupon for  a  family of  6    and  jumped at  the   chance!  It is  the   great wolf  lodge  waterpark, we  have  been  there   a  few  times   previously.  They  were   so  excited   and  there  was   some  hurried   packing  done !  When we  got  there it   was  a  relaxed atmosphere  with  a  smaller  capacity of  people.   We   ordered  pizza  for    dinner  and  they slept  soundly  that  night!   On  Monday  morning  they  did   a  little  more  swimming,  tubing,  watersliding    before  it  was   time  to  check out . 

 

 

Tuesday  was   back to   normal   With  school,  and  evening  sports.   The  younger  kids   had  pajama  day  at  school  Wednesday  which  was  fun ! 

 

New house  update :  I told  you  were  are  due  to  move into a  new  house in August, September. Last  week we  got  the  permit  approved .   Then on  Monday  evening  we  received  information  that  the   builder is  backing out of  the  contract  to  build. Long  story   short is  they  cannot  afford  to  build  the  house   at  the  agreed  price  we  reached  a  few  months  back.  The   building  trade costs are  at an  all time  high,  300% higher  than  a  year  ago   due  to   the  pandemic.   There   were  a  range of  emotions  when  we  got  the  news ( as you  can imagine !)   But  we  are getting  used to  the  fact  that  we  most  likely will not  be  building  now.   The only  chance  we  have  is  when  they  come  back  with a  revised  price , and  we  will see if its worth  it to pay  that extra. Otherwise  we  will be  looking  at   existing  homes  to  purchase. 

Last  night  just  for  fun  the  two of us   did actually  take  a look  at  a  few existing  home  through  our  realtor   friend  Mike. They  were  nice  but  did not  fully  meet  our  needs.  Afterwards  we  had a  little  date  night  at  a  local  bar  restaurant  called the crooked  pint . It  was   nice  to  get  couple  time,  the  joys  of  having  a  teenage  babysitter! 

Today  we  will tackle  some  more  house  projects ! 

Please  rate out of  10 this  ditsy   floral  shirred cami  dress ,  see  here

  1. Hi Terri! I’m glad you enjoyed Mother’s Day and received a new sterling silver heart chain, and had a fun family time at the Great Wolf Lodge Waterpark. That’s disappointing news about the new house, but I hope you will find an existing house to suit your needs, in case it doesn’t work out. Date night is awlways great, especially when you have a built-in baby-sitter. 🙂

    The floral dress is very pretty. 10

    Blessings!

    1. It was a nice Mothers day Carmen! The chain is beautiful, and there was a lot of fun at the Great wolf lodge! Yes we officially have piulled the plug on the new house but i have new updates in my blog this weekend !! Getting the chance to dress up is nice for a date night! It is nice having the babysitter advantage, but the kids are all pretty good. Usually good I must stress! It is a pretty dress for summer, I will see if its in the budget! Thanks for visiting Carmen , happy Thursday, Terri xo.
