Super Sunny Sunday.....

Oh man is it hot out.....Well, it's always hot out. Who am I kidding in July in Texas.....So after having 1 and 1/2 straight days of rain thanks to Hurricane Dolly we are back to our HOT HOT days.....Gotta love the upper 90's.....It was funny, when it was raining, I was thinking how much the grey skies and clouds reminded me of Seattle but all I had to do was walk outside and feel how warm it was with the rain and be reminded that we are indeed in Texas......But man it was nice to finally get some good rain......

We have just been hanging around the house most of the time....Soaking up all this Daddy time. We have not heard back from Shawn's second interview on Wed....but we knew the HR lady working on this position was out all last week, so hopefully we will hear early this coming week....Shawn felt pretty good after the interview, and thought if he didn't get it, it would be because his sales experience is not in the banking industry, but you never know as some of that stuff is teachable.....We will let you know what we here....

Today we had a picnic at the park......Sarah had given me a list of some good parks in our area and kid friendly places so last night we decided we would get out early this morning and have lunch at Orsinger County Park, the goal was to play, play, play and eat all before it got tooooo hot out.....The girls had a great time.....Lila too, she loves the playscapes.....quite the daredevil I must say.....Reminds me a lot of my friend Melissa's daughter Natalie when she was younger.....Lila is not shy to try new things.....The girls loved having our picnic....they even helped make their sandwiches before we left.....Fun for all.....and pretty close to the house.....
Playing & Park July 08

So after going back and forth and around and around I think I have finally come up with a theme for Lila's room.....I originally wanted to do something brown/pink/fuchsia but its just to common for me now.....and I thought about getting Central Park Toile Bedding in Pink and I like it, but had second thoughts....So after searching and getting ideas we are going to go with a French Inspired Whimsical Garden theme.....and am going to play off these sheets below, they are actually from Pottery Barn Kids.......funny cause they were my first choice.....and when we get Lila and big girl bed I will get the pink comforter shown below in blue (also shown below), that is if they still have it in blue....if not Pink would be ok too.....shoot maybe I will buy it all after we are in a situation when I can afford to splurge.....
.....but anyway it will be nice to add some green, blue and bright pink to her room to go with the light pink already in there....and I can not wait to go to the antique shops nearby and look for whimsical items that I can incorporate in to her theme.....all will have to wait until Shawn gets a job, but its so fun to plan!!!.....He too is excited about the theme and even helped me pick out the sheets.......and we are thinking of doing some more painting on one of the walls, maybe diamonds, or stripes or who knows.....

You all looked like you had a nice time at the park. I remember when I was in Texas for work, how hot it was in July. Three straight weeks of 105 with 100% Humidity.. got to love the hot weather. Thanks for the pictures... Love Mom
