Last Thursday was Matt's birthday! Now he is 27, and so so old. Believe it or not, this is the only picture that I took of his birthday celebration, where he is wearing his new slippers. I am seriously slacking on documenting our lives...
And then it was Megan's birthday on Friday! We went to a really fun Irish pub (where they had some of the best bangers and mash that I've had since I left the Emerald Isle), and celebrated with a lot of friends. Doesn't she look cute?
Matt and Layla had a moment before bed the other night. He is so crazy in love with this dog, it's ridiculous.
Layla and I walk over this bridge once a day, usually, and sometimes she smells something that she must investigate. She is definitely curious, and still getting used to all of the new things in our neighborhood.
We have a little half-bathroom downstairs, and the people here before us had done this faux-panting thing on the walls. It may not have been so bad if they had done a good job, but it just looked wretched, so I re-painted it! Matt was gone for two nights this week, and I got it done!
I used a very cool grey-blue paint, which matches our fish picture in there perfectly. I did have to ask Uncle Rob to come over and help re-grout some parts of the vanity, and then I actually did some myself after he had left! I am becoming quite handy.
I finally got to visit one of my best friends, Carolyn, who lives down here. The weather was just beautiful, and we sat outside by her pool for a bit--I am trying to get just a slight bit of color, so I look like I actually do LIVE in South Florida. It's a process.
I went to Aunt Nesi's for dinner and Downton Abbey. She served mashed potatoes and Chicken Garibaldi, which was delicioso! Downton Abbey, as usual, was perfect--I can't wait to watch the next episode!
I leave you with a view of the sunset from the same bridge I mentioned before. I am so lucky to live somewhere where all of this beauty is reflected in the water everywhere I go!
