1SE: May 2020

Ahhhh, another month of 2020 down.  Although honestly it feels like it's still March and we're on like day one million.  This year is so weird and so fastly-slow at the same time. Also in denial that Ted is going to be 7 months old on Thursday. HOWWWWW?!??!!

Anyways, yay for another month of this wild year DOWN.  May looked about the same as the months before: lots and lots of home time.  Although with the official stay home orders lifted we've been slowly venturing out more (so anxious for more things to open!) and hopefully this summer we'll have a bit more variety to these one second a day clips than just at home at home at home everything.

Andddd, while I've got you here, we are 152 days deep into 2020, so I've got a funsie little January - May collage for ya!

See ya later May...not gonna miss you at all.  Hopefully lots of fun things AND OPEN THINGS will be had in June!! Stay tuned my friends ;-)

Panic Purchase

Waayyyyyy back in March I panic purchased a 14 foot frame pool from Big Lots online (only $194 so a steal in my book) and it's been sitting in our garage. I was sooooo hoping it'd just stay there and the pools would open and we wouldn't have to bust it out.

Welp, as the end of May approached, that totally looked like it wasn't going to happen anytime soon, if at all this summer, that the pools would open.  So last week, after spending hours cleaning out the garage and back patio, Mike and I decided to put the pool 9pm at night in the pitch black. YOLO, right?!?!

But man, it's SO WORTH IT. The last time (2016!!) we had a hoosier pool setup it was down in our backyard (and a smaller pool).  This year we got a bigger one and measured our back patio and it looked like the 14 foot monster would JUST fit so we decided to put it up top and OMG. Best.decision.ever.  Way less buggy, no leaves and trees to worry about, in the sun most of the day, easy, clean access from the sliding glass door...and just so many more reasons I love it up top.

Patrick is at his vacation home at the lake indefinitely (haha) so he hasn't gotten to experience it (yet! He'll be back soon!), but the girls and Ted (and heck, Mike and I too!) have SO SO SO enjoyed it!  Seriously, best panic purchase decision EVER.

It was SO COLD the first few days ^^^...

...but it warmed up super fast!  And we have spent HOURS in it every day.

I bought a ton of pool toys and floats at Target and they have been so worth the money.

Anyways, just wanted to share the best pandemic purchase (aside from Hulu) I've ever bought! I'm sure we'll be spending allllll summer in here...since nothing else is open. haha!
