The Final Countdown

Now that we have a pass to the Cincinnati Zoo I pretty much want to go every single day! We got our second visit in over the weekend and had such a good time. It was a little chilly that day with threats of rain so it didn't feel very crowded which was awesome. T especially loved getting to see some of the new zoo babies that were out and about. The little 3-month-old tiger cubs were just so adorable and were really putting on a show for us all.




We also did a "final" shopping trip over the weekend for house stuff we need ASAP. We picked out our refrigerator as well as our washing machine which will both get delivered the day after we close. We close this Thursday, by the way!! I can't believe it's finally here. Time has gone so slow, but also so fast somehow. Time's weird like that, but regardless, we are ready to get into our new house and start unpacking.

Though we didn't actually purchase anything, we also spent some time browsing a few furniture stores and getting ideas for future decorating. A new master bedroom suite is in our future and hopefully a cool coffee table, too. We looked at some very traditional pieces like this one, but I'm also a sucker for a bold ottoman like this instead of a table.

Our Mother's Day was lowkey, but I got all the gifts I needed from my little boy. JUST this week he started saying "mama" consistently (!!!) and I also have been getting lots of open-mouth kisses from him, too. I'm still in shock that we're about to celebrate his first birthday. It's the final countdown to all the craziness!

  6. We've been playing that final countdown song as we only have 9 days of school left!

    Your fridge didn't come with the house? Did you have to buy your stove separate too?

  7. Ahhhh those cubs!!! I just want to snuggle them! lol Soooo with T walking all over the house, I would go for the ottoman!!! You can always move it to be a bed bench later on and get a coffee table when he is older. But I know all of my friends who have toddlers have had to ditch their tables due to injuries. Even a few had the bumpers on them and still didn't work. I bet you are so excited about closing!!! AHHHHH
