::Appointments, appointments, appointments! Doctor, dentist, vet, orthodontist, etc. We've known for awhile that Abbey was going to need some orthodontic intervention. We went for a consult last week and set up the first of her treatment appointments for the day after we return from vacation. Fun, fun, fun---cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching! (She looks a bit apprehensive, huh?)
::Lots of fro-yo. That's frozen yogurt for all you uncultured folks (get it? cultured? yogurt? I crack myself up). John and I are Pinkberry snobs but the kids have decided they like LuLu's almost as much. I think they really just like that they can add their own toppings at LuLu's. Well, that and the hula hoops! If you're local, you need to check BOTH of those places out and tell me which one you like better!
I've cheated on my no-sugar restriction a few times...and all of those cheats have been with fro-yo. It didn't really affect how I felt, but I ate white flour last night for the first time in 7.5 weeks and felt pretty yuck. I think I'm going to try to eat gluten-free indefinitely.
::I like my new bi-focals and I really like how well I can see with them! I'd been warned that it can take up to three weeks to adjust to them but thankfully, I was fine after a few days. I wish I had NOT gotten the transition lenses though because I don't like how dark they get in the sun. I know that's the point, but I'm vain enough to not like how they look. Oh well. Live and learn.
:: New flooring! We ended up going with a wood laminate and we love it. LOVE it. The one we chose has a hand-scraped finish which seems to help disguise footprints and smudges. I also love the color and the alternating plank size. We're so pleased!
:: Celebrating 21 years of marriage! Our anniversary was last week. John and I are going to Santa Fe in a couple of weeks (sans kiddos! yay!) so we decided to celebrate our actual anniversary with our kids. We went to one of our favorite places--Bella Panini--and had a really nice dinner with our three favorite people. The girls made this fun banner for us and hung it over our bed. Sweet.
::Other stuff that I don't have
any lame pictures for?
Hanging out with friends
Grilling almost every night and dining al fresco! Colorado evenings are AMAZING.
Enjoying pics of our newest cousin! Annapearce surprised us all by making her debut several weeks early. We can't wait to meet her in a few weeks when we go to Arkansas.
Getting ready for a certain tween girl's conversion to TEENAGER. Sarah will be 13 on the 13th! She's excited about her big day and her excitement is contagious!
