what an Awesome summer we have had! It sure has gone by FAST!!!! It seems like just yesterday school was ending, Haylee graduated from 6th grade and we began our summer fun.
We spent the 1st month and a half in Simi Valley with my parents and brother. Then me and the girls made ANOTHER trip to Utah to visit with 2 of my sisters, 1 brother in law and 8 cousins. YUP! 12 kids and 4 adults in (basically) 1 house. (I say basically because my 2 sisters live in a house that is an upstairs 3 bedroom house, with a downstairs 3 bedroom house)
What a blast that was! The trip was originally supposed to be 5 days and ended up being 10 days. We had many adventures while in Utah (I will be posting pictures soon) We went swimming, went to Salt Lake City and went to visit cousins.... (we have LOTS of cousins in Utah) While I was there I even "schooled" my sister Jeanne on coupon shopping. We had a few chances to put my teachings to the test and she did AWESOME! We even went grocery shopping the night before I left. We hit 3 stores. We left at about 10pm and finally returned home at around 215am. LUCKILY Wally World is open 24 hours. It was so much fun hanging out with my sister. She is my buddy and I already miss her tons :(
Also while in Utah I found my DREAM HOME! I know many of my "fans" aka double coupon day followers where SHOCKED to find out that I was NOT coming home for this past Double coupon day. BUT there was a GOOD reason for it
this house is AWESOME! I know I shouldn't get my hopes up but I would LOVE to have it for my own..... here are a few other pictures of Inside :)
the HUGE pantry in the kitchen!
the view in the backyard
the HUGE walk in closet in the master bedroom
the master bathroom... yup! Its HUGE
this is the 2nd bath upstairs for the kids
oh! and this is the master bedroom.... well part of it. I couldnt fit in the whole thing... Its HUGE!!!
This house has 5 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. It is over 2900 sqft and a beautiful view from the backyard.
We all fell in love with it the 1st time we saw it. I even went so far as to put in an offer! Now its the waiting game.....
So that is why we haven't been home. Too many other FUN things to do.... but now it's time to get back to reality! School starts in 10 days YIKES
