Hey, that's me
Dewee x 2

I have the best memories of being down the shore every summer as a kid. There was always a group of kids around, whether it was me tagging along with my brothers or a group of my cousins running up and down the boat slips. We ate hot dogs on the beach while our parents drank "crystal light" out of a jug, we shucked corn while Nan fired up the grill every night, we walked to Duffers for mini golf and ice cream and we begged our parents to take us to the boardwalk every night. Those were the days...so tell me, where did you spend your summers? Did you stay in hotels with pools (lucky!)? Or did you congregate at the town pool? Or were you in summer school?

Ok, well she didn't exactly bring home this little Orla Kiely-esque change purse with me in mind. She brought it home for herself. But this weekend, I saw it and told her how much I loved it and asked her where she got it...secretly hoping she wouldn't say Greece. Yeah well, she did. So being as awesome as she is, she takes her money out of it and throws it at me, saying that I love it much more than she does, it only cost one euro and that I could have it. I put up feeble resistance but she was having none of it. So now it's mine. Don't you love her?

I like his hair.

Anyway, I have decided that this may be my last summer sans kid, so I should apparently live it up. I like to think I’ll still be cool and go places when I have a kid but then I remember that I’m lazy and I get annoyed easily, so most likely I’ll be lugging the child around Target in spit-up-covered yoga pants every day.
I’ve been trying to think of things to do that are fun, sometimes involve more people than me and John, can be done on the weekends only and are cheap. So here is where I’ll share my ideas and hopefully it will make us more inclined to actually do them…you know, I don’t want to look flakey to my four blog-readers...yes, that’s you! So this is what I’m calling my Pre-Baby Bucket List.
Ok, so first up is my desire to simply, drive to the Chesapeake and eat crabs on a dock. Or deck. Restaurant deck. Either of these places, I just want to watch boats, eat crabs, drink beers and walk around a cutesy town then get ice cream. This desire leads me to a trip here…
Boats – Check
Crabs – Check
Beers – Check
Ice Cream – Check
Boardwalk – Bonus!
If you know of a more picturesque, cutesier town on the Chesapeake, have suggestions or want to come with, give me a holler.

The first step was to paint...and this baby took 3 coats of Laura Ashley Apple 6. Next, they removed the drop ceiling and hideous lighting that can be seen in this post. They put up new drywall, some trim that isn't quite flush because face it, the house is 89 years old and added a new light fixture.
The next step was to clear out the tub of all extra pillows and frames that I've yet to put away. This is a logical place to store them, correct? Anyway, the only things I had to do in here were add the $12 Home Goods shower curtain and once again question why there is another vanity...and so close to the shower?? Wierd.
So there you have it, a finished-for-the-time-being bathroom makeover.

7. The Chaplain: he performed a beautiful ceremony and used the phrase "You roll deep" when talking about how many people were there to see them get married. How awesome is that?
2. The Cake: Or more importantly, after the traditional feeding of the cake between the bride and groom, there was the untraditional shoving of the cake from the groom into my face. Somehow that was the only cake I ate that night, boo!
1. No More Dewee: You know how some people are defined by their name? Well that’s Kelly, or Dewee to be more precise. And although I’m sad that she’s not a Dewee anymore, the fact that she’s got this kid’s last name makes me very happy. I love Jeff almost as much as Kelly and I am so happy for them both. *sheds a tear*
Ok, wedding talk over and out.
