Our summer!

We had a great summer! So good, in fact, that I didn't even have a moment to sit and write about it. I took lots of pictures but they mostly went on Instagram (you can follow HERE if you'd like!) School has been crazy but I should be done in May! Aurora has grown from a giggly toddler into a smart, funny, friendly and opinionated "big girl". Life has been amazing, hectic and fast-paced and I wouldn't trade one second of it. Here's a peek:

Backyard Bubbles!

Visiting Estrella at the Children's Museum.

Eating a delicious fresh tortilla at the farmer's market.

Drawing at a block party (one of many this year!)

New scooter!

Storytime yoga at OmKids,

First time on a Ferris Wheel!

First time riding solo on a carnival ride. She loved it!

Playing at a pal's birthday party.

Aurora's spectacular Providence Pride outfit!
Hope everyone else's summer was just as packed with fun as ours was!

What we've been up to.

As of three weeks ago, Aurora has her very own, all-to-herself big girl bedroom. It was a pretty grueling process and it took much longer than I expected, but I am thrilled to say that it's done and I'm super happy with the results. Aurora is pretty pumped too! One of the things I'm the most proud of is that almost all of the furniture in Aurora's room was refinished furniture that may have otherwise been thrown away. The most I paid for anything in the room was $70 for the toddler bed a year and a half ago. The next is $50 for the curtains (I HAD to have them for her) and $20 for the dresser. Everything else was $10 or under! Here's a peek at the process and the results!

This one I'm really proud of. This is an old sawhorse support... 
And this is a sawhorse support turned into a bookcase!

Aurora's cool flower lamp.

Awesome textured wallpaper. Still unsure whether or not I'll be painting it pink.

Hello Kitty decal wall and play table.

Aurora's new reading corner. Still hunting for the perfect fluffy chair.

Closet wall.

Bed and nightstand.

Dresser, Aura's framed pictures, Hello Kitty clock.
Play table. Got this for $5 but it needed a total overhaul. 

The infamous $50 curtains. Totally worth it, right?!

Nothing says "I love you" like a heart-shaped, potato flatbread pizza!

This is a new recipe I tried for the first time. It was delicious and may be my go-to crust from now on. If there is any interest in the recipe, let me know and I'll post it!
