Summer is here!

So I realized this morning that I should really take pictures of this house before the little man gets here and chaos reigns supreme... So today was spent cleaning and subsequently taking pictures [and remembering at all costs to put the camera back into the hospital bag fully charged].

[This was me today, but with far less effort into getting dressed... from]

But before I get into that whole mess - I am way excited that it has been 3 whole days of it feeling like it's May [before that it was more like January/February]!  Hence the need to go out and water all of the pretty flowers that our landlord left for us, as well as the daydreaming about living in a place where it doesn't rain, and we can have a sitting area that looks like this:


I could totally kick back with a margarita or two on this lovely sofa - listening to some tunes, waiting for my burger... or lobster... you know, whatever...
