july 4th weekend!

this past weekend my in laws, AKA pauly’s parentals, came to visit for the holiday! it was really fun to have them stay with us, and we love any excuse to all hang out!

we did it all too! twins game! fireworks! trying new restaurants! plus they helped us a lot with ‘new house stuff’ such as narrowing down exterior paint colors, measuring rooms for furniture, shopping for furniture…..

okay….on that note…..can i take a small aside? thanks. ┬áso i know that this is a super-fun-building-our-home-probably-never-going-to-get-to-do-this-again moment we are having over the past few months, but……honestly…..sometimes i feel like: “there have GOT to be better uses of my brain power than debating the durability of oil rubbed bronze door knobs vs. brushed nickel…..” i am trying to enjoy every step, but i won’t miss some aspects of this process. NOT that i am not grateful to have it, but…you know…it feels a little shallow at times…..

okay, so back on track. bergs were here and we loved it. and i pictures to prove it :)

pauly's padre procured us some posh peering for the twins game. boom.
