Around here, things have been a-changing. Little things, and big things. The biggest thing is that we’ve inherited (on loan, that is) pretty much all of the awesome things Ryan owns. Ry’s moving back home for a bit to save up some money for his own rad house, and apparently his childhood room can’t hold the awesomeness that is his giant TV, xbox, playstation, wii, kinect, and various games. 
So our living room has transformed into this:
And my husband has been transformed to this: 

Truthfully though, I love that Chris finally has the awesome TV with awesome Halo 3 to play when he needs a break. That guy works too much and too hard. 
Other new things going on? It’s berry season again! We’ve been eating strawberries by the pound, and we just got a big case of fresh raspberries at Costco last weekend. Soooooo yummy on vanilla ice cream in yellow bowls….

Another new thing: Apparently we’ve had delicious smelling jasmine right outside our door this whole time. The whole thing bloomed recently and now we come home to yummy flowery smells. Last night I stood outside the door as the sun was going down and it was seriously like magic. I love our house!

Let me tell you some background about this next picture. We had this awful little filing cabinet that was just awful. Awful awful awful. I’ve had a pile of files on the corner of the desk for weeks because I hated the idea of using that awful filing cabinet. All that changed this weekend when we became the owners of the beautiful and free four-drawer cabinet. Oh, it’s so wonderful. I spent a glorious two hours yesterday transferring and updating our files. (Yes. I am that kind of a nerd.)

We’ve embarked on the project of photo wall. We’ve got lots of frames and lots of pictures. Too many as we’ve found. It’s hard deciding with will go up on the wall o’ awesomeness. (And that blurred blob you see sitting on the couch, outside the doorway? That’s C playing Halo 3 still.)

Also loving my craft area. It’s eclectic and colorful and I love it.

We also recently inherited this kitchen block. Thank goodness. because we needed some more storage for kitchen stuff. My favorite part of this is the bowl of lemons.

So that’s our home update. This has been a really great weekend of relaxing and being with friends and getting some stuff done. Next week we head off to Monterey for some vacation time. That means Ry gets to come hang out with all his stuff for a week! (Just make sure you clean up after your wild parties, Prades. 😉
