JEFF & LISA:
We knew we needed a new roof when we bought our home. Almost three years later we are checking it off our list. It’s been a debate for us deciding to finish the inside or start on the outside and then come back and finish the inside. Ideally getting the inside done first would be great, but we also don’t want our neighbors, kids friends and delivery drivers to think we live in a meth lab…so we are going to get the outside started as well:). When we get the outside finished or close to finished I’ll show you what the before looked like. I think you’ll enjoy it, haha!
Every time we have to pay for something big (like a roof) along with normal day to day living I think of my parents and how growing up I never realized the sacrifices they made raising a family. I’m not saying a roof is any sort of sacrifice, it’s a necessity. I am saying until I had children, especially teenagers and owned a home I couldn’t fully appreciate the childhood my parents gave me and my siblings. One thing I really admire is that my parents never, ever discussed money or argued in front of us. I think in my 19 years of living it at home, I heard them argue twice. I also heard my dad swear twice, both were directed at me..#whoops
AVERY & POPPY:
These girls know how to get out of school “hey mom, we should go to Disneyland this week” ” hey mom, if I stay home today I can watch Ozzy while you’re at meetings” SOLD. I swear by the end of the school year I am just as over sending them to school as they are going to school. Especially when it’s already summer for our friends and cousins who come to visit.
Disneyland was way fun with everyone! I had meetings in La Jolla that morning so we didn’t get there until after 2 and stayed till 9:30. It was the perfect amount of time. Living in Southern California, annual Disneyland passes are the only way to go. No guilt staying for just a few hours, you can always come back. Ozzy loved the Nemo ride, like LOVED it! It was cute to see her get excited about things she saw and heard.
GOLDIE & OZZY:
Goldie lives for end of year festivities. You know how schools like to cram 943 recitals, teacher appreciation week, parties, art shows, open house, Olympic day and bake sales into the last month? I dread it all and Goldie can’t get enough of the action! Do you remember when Ozzy had clogged tear ducts and constant weeping eyes? We took her to a specialist about 5 months ago. She prescribed us a ointment and it cleared everything up. Her eyes looked great for the last several months and now they are back to being congested and swollen. We know she is allergic to milk and soy, I think I need to take her in for a full allergy test and see what else she’s allergic to.
ps. scroll to the bottom see images of dresses, jumpsuits, shoes, etc. Leave a comment and tell me if you prefer to SHOP this way OR if you like them listed out in text form with a link in bold. I have been playing around with both and might mix/match when this site is redesigned. For those who just want direct links in story, I do several of those per week. However, my main goal isn’t to make quick money. I spend hours on these blog posts and writing them with proper SEO, etc provide longevity to my business. So even though that frustrates a handful of you, I try to do what’s best for my family, longterm.
Thank you for your support here on Salty Lashes. When I see how quickly this site has grown in such a short period of time, I am truly humbled. Thank you!
