Where do I begin?

First off, the cable for my camera has been missing since we moved over a month ago. Now that I finally have a way to upload photos, I have a ton to show you! Time to catch up!!

We moved at the beginning of May. Our lease was going to be up at our duplex and we were dreading the idea of continuing to rent. All of the great incentives for first time home buyers along with a lot of encouragement from my family made us decide to go ahead and buy. We found a great townhouse style condo in Verona, just on the edge of Madison/Verona and actually even a little closer to work than we were before. Here are a few photos.

We have a lot of work to do to get the place the way we want it. Nothing huge - just lots of small projects. A few big ones, I guess. I will be happy just to finish painting the living room. The pink/aqua dining room makes me happy. It's really hard for me to not paint EVERYthing that color.

Moving on: Gratuitous photos of my kids:

We've been having so much fun this spring. We've visited Wisconsin Dells a couple of times - once for a couple days at Kalahari (they LOVED the waterpark) and once for a day trip to visit friends and Robot World (I don't care if it's called Tommy Bartlett Exploratory now...I'm still calling it Robot World.) We have been spending lots of time outside - bikes, parks, water fights, parades, fireworks, hikes, zoo, picnics, walks to the library and everywhere else - I so love this nice weather. Chad has been absolutely wearing the kids out during the days. It's great! :)

Oh! Our CSA shares started last week. Here is a photo of our first box. Lots of greens! Big salads at the Thorson household this week. Week 2 was about the same except they added some chives to the mix. YUM. I can't wait for berries. Lars can't wait for broccoli. :)

Finally, we haven't been making a lot of new things just yet but we have ideas brewing. I have been working on an art journal project just for fun. Chad and I have been coming up with some ideas for new post cards and possibly shirts. As soon as I can carve out a bit of time to make these ideas reality, we'll have some new things to show you! In the meantime, I have been adding a few new things here and there into my etsy shop and have listed some oldies but goodies as well. I also started a facebook page for Space Oddities - you can visit us and become a fan by clicking HERE!
