Happy Birthday to me! WOOT!
Being the smart military wife that she is, my best friend Kaylee decided to wait until I got settled in Washington to send my birthday present. I got it today! Kaylee I must say that you are the AWESOME :)
Little Sesame Street inspiration for our title today! Mostly because I think it's burned into my brain. As if I didn't watch enough of it as a child, it is the only show Jack will pay attention to for more than 2 minutes. So please just ignore me if I make a few references (or more than a few) to Sesame Street.
But, it was indeed sunny as can be in the Puget Sound today! I always forget how good the sun feels after I haven't seen it in a while. I skipped out on working in the house and continuing my blog makeover, and Kellee, Jack and I went to the Port of Olympia for a picnic. We parked at the Famer's Market parking lot so we could walk along the docks down to the water.
Every time I go down by the docks, I always think of how my grandpa would love to see all the boats, and how he would love to fish out here :)
We took lots of pictures today because Nana Beth was saying I don't take enough of the munchkin. So here ya go mama!
Some of my favorites from today.

If you're reading this, you'll notice some major changes on our blog! All things to upgrade and give it a new look, no worries that I'm leaving y'all!
First, it is important to note that even though our title has changed, the url (web address) will stay the same. We will still be located at http://www.davisfamily2009.blogspot.com/
Our new Title is ... "Livin' Our Love Song" inspired by the song from Jason Michael Carroll
I still have a few more changes and tweeks up my sleeve that will be added in the next couple days, so stay tuned!

Haven't blogged lately because there's really not much going on. I'm actually blogging right now to avoid hanging my geometric shelves in the living room. They are such a pain to try and get exactly even and spaced just right. But maybe thats just because I have an issue with OCD and even spacing. It's quite ridiculous. Anyways, when I finally do hang the shelves I will post pictures. I love the way they look when I get them just right but it takes me forever to get them how I like them. P.S. Does anyone else put their movies and books in alphabetical order? At least I'm not setting up a full functioning library this time, right mom? :)
We have finally started to get a taste of summer in Washington. The sun was out ALL DAY this past Saturday for the first time since I've been back. I mowed the yard (more like fought with the yard) and Jack and I took a walk afterwards.
Jack wasn't too impressed...
Oh I forgot I made these for my kitchen!
I needed some magnets and I couldn't find any I like so I just used some left over seashells I had and hotglued magnets to the back and BAM! Cute beachy magnets.
I also gave my old ugly clock a makeover so it could join be included in the dining area.
I'm not entirely happy with the brown background color, so that may be redone to a more sandy brown or a blue color in the future, but for now it'll do.

How many of you have heard of Tumblr? 1 person? 10? none?
I had never heard of it before my BFF Erin showed it to me. And I must say, I do like it. It's basically like a blog, but its much simpler to post quotes, text, photos, links, videos, and audio. I mostly use mine to re-blog photos and things from other Tumblr users and quotes, but I use it as a vent to what's on my mind. Single thoughts.
The link to my tumblr page is now listed at the top right.

I know, I know. Enough sentimental stuff. So without further to do, here's the progress I've made in my kitchen/dining area! Theme.... BEACH!
The Davis family calendar! It's basically a sticker with a dry erase marker. But oh how I love it. I'm a planning freak. To have my schedule and to do list right here handy is awesome!
Dining area. Table is from ikea, it has a hidden leaf below the main tabletop that can be put in to allow for room for guests. I still need curtains for the sliding door, CHAIRS, and a rug for underneath the table. Also going to find more things for the wall, it's just so darn big.
The sole piece of decor I have on the wall right now
Kitchen Sink Area, don't mind the kettle in the sink
Other side of the kitchen. Love my new lighthouse! I have a quietly growing "thing" for lighthouses. I also can't wait to pop open that bottle of wine when Jeff gets home (Thanks aunt Chris!). Let's hope he doesn't make slushie out of this bottle ;) Love you babe
Not finished, but at least I got something done, right? Now the living room? It might be a while before you get pictures of that! Jack's room is next on my list. He's got some really cute stuff for his room, but I wont tell! You'll just have to wait for the pictures! Tomorrow Kellee and I are going to Romancing the Spouse in Dupont tomorrow. It's an event held to help the spouses of deployed soldiers get ready for their hunnies to come home. Lots of freebies and coupons! And who doesn't love freebies and coupons? Needless to say, Jack is doomed for yet another girly day. Daddy will have to do man dates with him when he gets home to make up for all this girly stuff I put him through.
