I’m so, so, so excited for this summer – a little bit more than usual because, um, I’M GROWING A BABY and it’s such a neat and fun time for us. I’m ready to have a ball this summer!
Here are a few things that I’m hoping to do with the husband during these next three months:
Play hooky with my husband
We call it “playing hooky”, but really, this means we will take a vacay day and let our bosses know two weeks in advance, (we’re such rebels, ha!) Since we aren’t really getting to take a full-fledged vacation this summer, we thought we’d take a day to cruise the lake while everyone else is at work : )
Create the perfect, girly nursery for Caroline Rose
This one is well in the works! I actually just ordered the bedding for Miss Caroline today and am SOOOOOOO excited to get everything all assembled with her crib and dresser. I will say, it’s neither of the bedding sets I shared with y’all last week. I found something I loved even more!
Spend a day with Memaw learning to make her famous bread rolls
I’ve said I wanted to do this forever, but this is the summer it’s going to happen. We head to Heber Springs again at the end of July for my brother’s wedding, so I’m thinking sometime that weekend will be perfect. She is such an amazing baker/cook and these rolls are the best I’ve eaten in my life. I NEED to know how to replicate them. (Backstory: The recipe actually belonged to my maternal great-grandmother, who handed them off to my paternal grandmother – Memaw. These are (to my knowledge) the only people who have successfully made the recipe. It’s a tricky one!)
Buy and master a new, fancy camera
I want to be able to provide better photos here on the blog and, above all, I want to have great photos of our little girl when she arrives. And this ain’t gonna happen with the little point-n-shoot I have now.
Go on a real picnic, basket and everything
I don't know that this one needs a big explanation. I just want to buy a big basket, fill it will delicious goodies and find a shady spot to split a sandwich with the guy I love.
