Keeping Cool

That's what I've been trying to do the past couple days~ keep cool. It's way to hot out for me ! I know some of you might think I'm nuts, but I'm already looking forward to Fall :-) I even sprayed my pumpkin cornbread room spray around the house today~I love the smell of Fall! Well, today I stayed in the nice cool house, cleaned, and rearranged some things. I moved the table at the one end of my living room to a new spot under my wall cabinet. I think I like it better there because I have room to have the sides of the table up. If you want to see a few more new pictures I took today you can click here.
On Saturday Paige and I went to the Farmers market in Omaha and then to a few yard sales. We found this chair and desk for Paige for $5. They were light blue with stenciled flowers on them. We came home and spray painted them white to match the rest of the furniture in her room. The tall candle holder on the desk and the grungy green candle are from Primitive Treasures in Lincoln. She got those when we went there in May.

We also went to see The Proposal on Sunday afternoon. It was really good and so funny. We will probably go see Transformers 2 one day this week. Thank goodness for all the good movies that come out during the summer~ one of the other fun things we do to keep cool! Hope you all have a great week!

Walking on the Trails, a Smoothie, and a Candle

Today Paige and I decided to go walk on the Papio trails near our house. Omaha has such nice walking/bike trails all over the place. I would like to start going to walk at least twice a week instead of biking every day at home.
I put Paige's bike in the trunk of the car and tied it down the best I could. I think we need a bike rack :-) We had a nice, long walk/ride. Lot's of other people were out walking, jogging, and biking today. It was a bit humid, but there was a nice breeze. We were both sweaty and tired when we got back to the car and decided to get a Scooter's fruit smoothie for lunch. I LOVE their smoothies! They are so refreshing and yummy! Well, we were sitting at a red light and I decided that I needed to take a picture of my smoothie for this post. I sat it on top of the dashboard and took one picture and was starting to take one more when the light changed. I was trying to get the picture taken real quick, but saw that there were cars behind me ready to go. I wasn't thinking and hit the gas and my smoothie went flying off splattering all over me and the window. Yep, I'm a dork. Luckily Paige caught it and there was plenty left for me to enjoy. I still have a few smoothie smears to clean up in the car. :-)

My strawberry banana smoothie~

Out on the trail. I love the bridge. Sometimes we can see beavers swimming down below.

Then this afternoon I decided to stop by Weathered and Worn to look around a little. I bought a new candle and some wax melters. I love these 1803 Candles. They have so many wonderful scents and I love the names of them all.It took me awhile to decide which one I wanted. I chose the Buttermik Cupboard candle and the Grandma's Cupboard melters. I like how on the label on the front of the candle there is a little description. On the Buttermilk Cupboard candle it says~The old buttermilk cupboard stands in the keeping room filled with milk buckets and the butter churn.
Whenever I do have my own store one day I want to sell these candles for sure!If I'm not back again before the week is over, have a great week!:-)

Just a Whole Lot of Boring

Well, I haven't been very good with posting lately. I guess the title of this post says it all. It's just kind of boring around here. I haven't done any new decorating or bought any great new prims. Paige has been kind of bored since her good friend Katie that lived across the street moved about 30 minutes away. She gets to see her about once a week. Paige is the kind of kid that wants to be busy ALL the time. I should have put her in a summer camp or something. At least she has two nights a week of Taekwondo and one night of gymnastics.She wants to start guitar lessons too. We've also been going to the pool about once a week. My son Gabriel is like me, we can keep ourselves busy and are pretty content without a whole lot to do.
I have been working hard to stay on my exercise routine and eating very healthy. I have been trying to buy as much organic food as I can. I love these Kashi frozen meals. I have one for either lunch or dinner and this new Island Vanilla cereal is so YUMMY! I have it for breakfast each day. I ride my recumbent bike every day for one to two hours, do my abs bootcamp DVD and weights every other day. I'm very addicted to working out now and only take Saturday's off. I've lost 9 pounds so far and I feel great! I've been reading this book by Jillian Michaels called Master Your Metabolism. I really recommend it if you struggle with your weight or even just want to be healthier.

We are excited because we had been waiting patiently for the Taylor Swift tickets to go on sale for her concert in Omaha on Aug. 9. We were hoping for great seats. I was at the computer ready to buy them the second they went on sale last week. The only tickets that were available were way up high. How can they sell out within the first few minutes!? I gave up went right over to Ebay. There were tons for sale there and we got floor seats. Hurray! We're really looking forward to it.

The birds have flown out of the nest on my front door and they have left an awful mess. Today I am going to throw the wreath away, clean up the door and figure out what to hang on it now. Unfortunately I didn't get any other good pictures of the birds before they left. I would also like to work on some new Liberty signs today. I'll post pictures when I get them done.
I've been in the mood for a vacation lately.Somewhere exciting with a lot going on. Here are the two places that I'm in the mood to go~

New York City~

and Las Vegas~
Now I just need a whole bunch of money and someone to babysit my two big, old dogs and I'm ready to go! I hope you all are having a great week and if I don't post again before the weekend, have a great weekend !
