We’re updating Carter’s room, and she’s ALL OVER the DIY!
Her dressers, makeshift drawers from Target, are beat up and broken. So we found an old dresser for $30, painted it black with a pink, a teal, and a white drawer, added gold pulls, and left the bottom space for baskets. We used two old storage cubes for desk sides and got a board to create the desk. We painted Grandma’s old spice rack black and used it for a nail polish organizer, and got a mirror and a corkboard for her Tinker-desk area. She’s in DYI heaven!
It was an innocent afternoon at the pool .. until .. there were boys ..
Pretend to hear the Baywatch theme in your mind as he runs to me!
Then .. the boys came by. Ben, to be exact (left). Carter was excited to see him, because he’s her pal. Amelia was excited to see him because she has Boy Fever!
BFF’s! I love these ladies!
After Ben, and his friend, were spotted, Amelia was all over following, and flirting!, with them! Carter was more interested in playing with them!
The thing that I absolutely adore is that she’s That Girl, the girl that other girls like to hang out with because she’s a great and funny friend, and the girl that boys like to hang out with because she’s awesome! I just love her!
We got a molar that has lost its filling. It’s also loose, so the easiest thing to do is yank it.
I think this one’s had more teeth pulled than lost on her own. BLAH, I agree! But, she’s always been a trooper, and today was no exception! We pulled the tooth and left it for the Tooth Fairy. I got no photos because a friend was over and they were on it before I could snap it! But, she left a trail of glitter from the window where she snuck in to Carter’s pillow, where we found $5 and a thank you!
So, the kids were supposed to go the zoo while I was in LaCrosse. But Carter had a conflict with basketball camp, and Charlie threw up, so neither got to go. I promised a trip when I got back. So, off we went!
A new scaly friend!
The otters never fail to amuse!
Carter and her budgies!
Charlie … not so sure …
… and I love that he’s a Big Boy, but still needs his mama!
