Hi. I am Elizabeth. 

Welcome to my blog. I use this little space to chronicle the adventures of the Noel family!

Last Days of Summer...


No conversations over coffee this week. I haven't even had time to drink my coffee while it is hot this week, let alone come up with anything to chat about with you guys. 

I am soaking up the last week of summer with Dex before he starts school on Monday. I can't believe I am going to have a first grader! He will be starting a new school (the 3rd school in 3 years, don't get me started...) and along with that comes lots of nerves, prayers and time on my part to write letters to his new teachers to make sure they get to know Dex and how to work with him best.  I also have to go through his IEP with a fine toothed comb to make sure this new school is doing what they are supposed to according to the IEP. 

We also put a contract on a house this week. So we have been scrambling around talking to lenders, setting closing dates, waiting on inspections, and spending the evenings on pinterest- dreaming about how we are going to style our own fixer upper. There will probably be many blog posts on our progress as we make this precious house into our dream home. 

Do you see why I haven't been looking for recipes to share or my favorite things from the Nordstrom sale? We will be back to our regularly scheduled Friday posts next week, but for now I am off to celebrate 12 years of love with my guy this weekend. Can't believe we have been married for 12 years! 

Hope you have a great weekend filled with lots of coffee! 

Until next time...

I Love Us
