...Updates...

...or 'Why Have I Been too Busy to Blog?' Actually, I have no idea...
But we did take the next step in the Foreign Exchange Opportunity. We submitted our application started the background check process. The Coordinator scheduled a home visit...so we dusted her room...I hope she likes pink. Our DD1 certainly does.
There is a bathroom downstairs for her...decorated with 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' prints.
When we moved to this house, my hubby wanted to redo this bathroom with a duck theme. This is way better, don't you think? I love these pictures...the bathroom is yellow, but not quite as yellow as the photos turned out.
















Paella for Dinner...Italian Sausage, Chicken, Shrimp, Vegetables and Rice all in one dish...what could be better?

And there is always the never-ending pile of papers to correct...

Pink....Pink.....Pink.....I missed out on girls and love seeing a little pink bedroom. What's not to love!

Good luck on the exchange student. Sure hope you do get a girl. A guy would hate your frills and pink.
As for me, I enjoy the empty nest!

Oh my gosh that paella looks incredible. Love the "girls just want to have fun theme." Hillarious! As much as I love duck, you are right, "the girls" theme is better. ;o)

Oohh, I love that pink and brown combo!! So I suppose you've decided on a girl. How exciting!! Would this not actually take place until fall semester?

I LOVE the decor, Natalie!

I clicked to enlarge each picture for viewing. I shouldn't have done that with the Paella dish. It's 11:00 o'clock at night, and now I'm hungry. It looks divine!

Thanks for keeping us up on the FEO process.
