Weekend stuff...

I don't think I was supposed to start my 33rd year of life by gaining 33 new pounds.
But I'm pretty sure that's what happened this week.
Restaurant food and mocha brownies and cake balls, oh my!



We now officially own three homes.
That's crazy.
We bought the farm yesterday.
1. Our last flip house: now a rental.
2. Our current home: hopefully will be sold soon.
3. Our farm house: remodeling begins today.

This latest one is the 7th home we've owned in 11 years of marriage.
My friend told me we're The Rockefellers of our town.
Funny because our income is scary low.
We're certainly not wealthy.
But apparently we're trustworthy enough for the bank to loan to.



I want to go start painting bedrooms today.
I like painting.
Maybe it would even burn a calorie or two.



I mentioned the other day that those citrus things that grow in Florida are called "orange apples."

Today I learned that the green things that grow on vines and sometimes get turned into wine are called "green blueberries."



Hope you're having a great weekend!

Everyone is entitled to a a birthday week of all things yummy!!!

Good luck with the painting thing and you will burn some of those calories off and next week you can start it off by eating orange apples and green blueberries!

Your life sound like mine-we have done the house flipping or renting-we have had around 11 houses too-the money is low and the bank trusts us too-the difference I see is we are old-HA! I have something in common with you-I love to paint too-that part is fun. Well congratulations on your farm-can't wait to see pictures.

Hi Beki,
We have a mutual friend, Beth at Miabella...loved your work toward helping the Haitians...you've inspired me. Also, this post is priceless!

Isn't it amazing what children will come up with? My son once informed me that he went to South America with Grandpa (my dad) and went skydiving. He was 3. He further informed me that "That's before you were born, Mommy". So...do you ever wonder who these little beings are? haha.

Thanks for sharing the "Out of the mouths of babes" post!
