Whew! Time to settle down!

We have been getting inundated with visitors lately! I love having company, but it is also nice when your house settles down and you can get back to your routine and just being lazy sometimes. We don't get very many family photos, so I had to share this one. We took G's mother and sister to San Francisco for the day. We made a stop on Treasure Island on our way over the bridge and got some great photos. We really just spent the day wondering around being tourists. G's sister had never been down before to visit us and had never been to San Francisco. We did the whole Pier 39 thing, including hot clam chowder soup in a bread bowl, then we tood a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge and down Lombard Street. After all the hot weather we've been having, we pick the cold and foggy day to head over there. Little J just loved having his Auntie here! He actually whined when she was getting ready to leave.

Auntie K really helped G out. She painted our entire living room for us! G's been finishing up the hall way, and soon we will be able to move our furniature back in....along with a few new pieces I'm looking for ;)! I can't wait to get it all done and enjoy the calm of the space.

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. Little J and I spent it shopping! Poor G had to work, so what better use of the day, than to shop a little! No shoes today, but I still have a pair to put a photo up of (I know
Jen your still waiting for the photo)! I did get Little J a cute new outfit from
Gymboree at an amazing 60% off! Gotta love that! I also made a killing at New York & Company. I love their coupons! I also finally caved and bought some
Bare Escentuals make-up on QVC.

Well, it looks like I've written a novel here tonight! Now it's time to go tackle my lists of things I need to do, things I wanna do, and such. Let's hope I can clear all those lists!

It's fun being a tourist every now and again. Glad you had fun. :-)

I've been thinking of going back to wearing Bare Escentuals make-up again. It's good stuff.
