Home Sweet Home.

We walked through an open house across the street from us. The house was smaller than ours but it was really super cute. It didn’t have much of a backyard. But it had a pretty amazing back deck. When we were up on the third floor across the street from home, I snapped this photo of our house…

It seems there’s always something you could be working on, fixing up or updating but I still love our house so much.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿกโค๏ธ

Premier League Mornings.

Premier League Saturday morning soccer…

There’s nothing better than Saturday morning soccer on two screens.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ†โค๏ธ

We’re ready for some football.

We have some beers in our fridge for the start of football season.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿบโค๏ธ

Corners of our home.

I love how the evening sunlight shines in our office window at the back of our house and floods down our second-floor hallway…

I also love the sunlight against all the dark wood.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿกโค๏ธ

 

Our back patio.

After loading up on mosquito repellent, we hung out on our back patio this evening…

We love our back patio except for all the mosquitos.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿกโค๏ธ

We were making confetti.

I’ve been wanting a nice paper shredder for a while. I finally got around to ordering one through Amazon and it was waiting for us when we got home yesterday evening…

It’s weird to get all excited about a silly thing like a paper shredder but I was so very excited about getting to test it out. And today, I got to really give it a good workout by shredding a whole big stack of papers that had been accumulating since we moved into our house. And it worked great…

I ended up shredding enough paper to fill a 13-gallon trash bag with confetti that we were then able to recycle.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽŠโค๏ธ

We got this new rug for our office…

I like bears.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

Check out this guy.

This is a Soft ‘N Slo Squishies Duck Cutiez withย Cutiez Bear Costume…

He’s basically a really squishy adorable little duck that you can stuff inside of a slightly less squishy bear costume. How ridiculously stupid cute is that? And here he is shot with my Polaroid CUBE+…

What will they think of next?ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

Mr. Fix-It.

The lock on our back door broke this evening. I went to let the dogs out the back door into the yard and the little knob came right off in my hand…

We had to use needle-nosed pliers to get the back door open. Thankfully, we could also use the needle-nosed pliers to get the door to latch again after they came back inside.

UPDATE: I managed to find the exact same lock at Wood’s Hardware downtown and replace the lock and add a deadbolt to our back door. It was surprisingly not that difficult at all. This is now the third lock I’ve replaced in our house. A while back the deadbolt on our front door broke after unlocking it to get into our house when we were coming home one evening. And I replaced that lock with little difficulty as well. I’m becoming quite the master locksmith. Haha.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ
