Things feel like they are a little closer to coming together. I've decided that this is a process that will never feel finished, but at least I'm almost to the point where I can feel like I can do something other than obsess about what needs to be done on the house. I'll be posting a room by room synopsis of what has been done and where we're going with things over the next little bit.
I've learned a little about the things I really like in terms of style, and I've also learned that I've inherited the second-hand bug from my dad's side of the family. In addition to the wonderful vintage goodies I brought home from Indiana, I've been picking up some here and there at the second hand store. I'll have to share those with you too. I've realized that I really like vintage, which I guess makes sense considering some of my favorite bloggers do too.
Anyway, I miss posting about what's been going on with all of us, and hopefully you've missed reading about it.
Oh, so the title is wooly bears...guess I should share about them? I've always been a caterpillar kind of girl. Loved the wooly bears when I was a kid, and I can remember ending up with itches in the webs of my fingers from spending so much time picking them up, holding them, petting them, and making them my wiggly little playmates. So imagine my delight when while weeding yesterday I found a few of them curled up in the tall grass. I wanted to share my excitement with the boys, so I gave a holler for them. Jonah was Johnny-on-the-spot and couldn't get a hold of one fast enough. He carried it around, petted it, and took it in to show Daddie (who promptly hollered for him to take it out, which is how I knew it ended up in the house in the first place!). So now my little J-man is a wooly bear guy too. Miss C. couldn't be bothered to touch one, as she was a little afraid of the fact that they move when you do. Liam thought they were neat but didn't think he liked the tickly feeling he got when they moved. Jonah, however, couldn't get enough. Since yesterday, he's been on the lookout.
