New house! First bath!

Oh, hello again! Our time in Breckenridge has ended...We are back in Austin!

We've been home(-ish) since last Saturday, but had to spend a week at my mother in law's friend's because house was stillllll not ready.

Inspection not completed so couldn't turn gas on, which meant no hot water, and then the air conditioner broke and then a bajillion other little things, you know, like electrical problems, that prevented inspection from
happening, and we kept being told inspection will take place "tomorrow" for like five days in a row...


After a stressful week and a half of starting a new job and kids starting new daycare and intruding on someone's home with our loud (especially at 3am and 530am) brood, and really no sleep at all, we are finally in the house and *most* things are functional! Yay!

Not to mention new and beautiful!! Double yay!! We love it!!

Unpacking has been a slow process because house/boxes/furniture/everything is covered with an inch thick of dust and debris, and it is difficult to properly unpack when plumbers and carpenters and painters are still working on your house, but it's coming along...albeit slowly.

It has been nice to uncover some old pretty things that were packed away LAST October when we prepped our condo for listing on the market. Wow! And then we've basically been living semi-haphazardly out of boxes and suitcases since December 18th when we left San Francisco! Double wow!

Well! It's not only good to be HOME, it's awesome to be home! And in OUR home! And I told the hubs we are not moving for a looooooooong time! (exclamation points!!)

Gave kids their first bath tonight in the new tub. Tripp was laughing as always, but Scarlett was a little too busy to smile for the camera. Not the best pics but wanted to update that we are In.The.House!

So happy with how things have turned out. Can't wait to share more pictures of kitchen and bath soon!

Teething Town

Tripp's first tooth is coming in...

Scarlett's back molars are coming in...

Let's just say yesterday and today everyone had a fun time in teething town!

Fingers crossed for a better night tonight.

Last date night, Breckenridge

Things you shouldn't say to your wife while on a date after you've flirtatiously grabbed her ass:

"Nice Spanx!"

Awh! C'mon! I've been going to body pump 3x/week for over a month now! Don't call me out on the spanx so quickly!

Well...I didn't take offense because we joke about spanx all the time (night spanx?! 30 rock ref?!) and I know he thinks I have a nice behind sans spanx, so I proceeded to devour a ton of delicious sushi!

Who knew there'd be amazing sushi in the mountains?

Family friendly hike

Lower-Cataract Lake Trail.

We didn't bring a carrier for Scarlett because this hike was labeled so "family friendly"...

After a face plant trip and a mouth full of dirt, Scarlett didn't want to walk anymore. Not surprising! And of course she only to be carried by daddy, so daddyD ended up with double time kiddo duty.
