Well there goes September! Remember when Nick and I (let’s be serious though, it’s always been me) used to write cute little posts about our house and trips different places? That was so adorable of us.
Before Violet we installed fans and built shelves and painted entire rooms from floor to ceiling. Since Violet we’re lucky if we remember to move the laundry from the washer to the dryer (come on, we can’t be the only people who’ve run the washing machine a second time after realizing clothes had been sitting there for a while…).
My house goal for September was to finish painting the shelves for our new, beautiful, stunning, amazing built-ins. Four shelves. That’s it. Though, in fairness to the project, each shelf has to be primed before it’s painted. And then I have to repaint all the places where knots have shown through. But then we decided that nice weekends were better for picking apples for the first time:
Or maybe checking out local breweries. Which are all, surprisingly, baby/kid friendly!
Nick did get super handy and muscular and put together a window box for the house. He even stained it and mounted it! I filled it with flowers for him, because he did SUCH a nice job.
Who needs silly house projects like putting all the maternity and old baby clothes away when you have awesome costumes to wear on a random Saturday? Violet decided to dress up as Snow White on our way to the St. Baldrick’s head shaving that Nick participated in. And, lucky us, we passed ANOTHER Snow White on our way there who took a picture with us!!! How lucky were we?!
We learned later that there was a ComicCon going on at the Radison in Manchester. Weird, weird coincidence.
Nick and his brothers, father, friend, and coworkers all shaved their heads after raising a whole bunch of money for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for childhood cancer research. Look at how wonderful they all look!
Last, but not least, September is leaving us with some nice, crisp weather. Do you know what that means?! HATS! SO MANY HATS!! Seriously, someone is definitely a hat girl. Look at her in her daisy hat (from one of Nick’s wonderful coworkers)
And then I made her this one last night for the winter. Do you see how big that pompom is?!
I’d love to tell you that in October we plan on finally taking down the wallpaper in the kitchen. Or finally finish painting the shelves. But we probably won’t get to any of that. As long and I wear clothes every day, then I’d say we’re doing pretty well.
