Catching up to Spring!~

Its been a long while since I've had a moment to sit down and write. Since the middle of April things have gone nuts here! Todd has joined a soccer league on Tuesday nights, Caleb has soccer on Weds nights and Sat afternoon, Hannah has dance on Thursdays and then Todd goes to play softball on Saturday nights. In between all those activities we have been doing all other things under the sun. Its been crazy, but I can't complain. With spring comes all the busyness but it also brings warmth! Somehow it all seems to equal out.

One of those extra activities I had to do was take Hannah to get "head shots" for dance. I am going to have my sister-in-law, Shari ( take the official pictures but I wanted to capture a few pics of Hannah myself. Its had to believe that she will be turning 11 soon!

As far as our bathroom renovations, we have purchased two faucets (one for the tub/shower and the other for the vanity) on clearance and I have my eye on some inexpensive tile at Home Depot. Other than that, we haven't gotten too far in the planning. Our hopes are that we can begin the renovations this month, possibly the weekend of the 18th.
The last news in the Porter Family is that we finally purchased our first set of living room furniture! I found a set at Big Lots that I loved and have been looking at for several weeks, so this week, we cleared out the corner desk, the wall desk unit and gave away our couch on Craig's List so that we could make room for the furniture. The set I found is chocolate brown Micro-suede with coordinating pillows in beige, brown and a blue/green print. When we went to buy it, they only had the couch in stock, so we put a deposit on the love seat and brought the couch home. It looks great and as silly as it sounds, I am really excited to have something nice in place of the old, covered sofa bed we had for so many years. I am really grateful for all of the furniture that friends and family have given us but there is something about being able to pick out a piece of furniture that fits you.

Anyway, thats about it for now! Look for pics of our bathroom renovation over the next few weeks!
