gibson made this meme after making up a parody to the alicia keys song. you might never be able to sing it the right way again. you’re welcome!
currently what’s on my bookshelf.
night circus: kinda gritty but i’m loving it so far
redeeming love: a book i’ve read but want to read again.
no more headaches: let’s just say it’s been helpful 😉
the forgotten garden: haven’t started it yet…supposed to be a good one
the chaperone: still working on this one and i love every page of this tale
we got some beautiful oranges from papa’s tree.

this makes me happy tonight.

my boys were very little babies once. both of these were taken at 2 months old. since marshall looked so much like gibson as a baby, i dressed him up like his brother and tried to setup the same kind of picture. of course they have their different features, but it was so sweet how much marshall resembled gibson for this short period of time. but hey, i guess that happens when both kids have the same set of parents. 🙂
friday | january 25:
the test studying tonight is serious. we’ll do this all weekend…
saturday | january 26:
yay, i’m making something!
our errands today brought us to sams. gibson and i came back out to find these birds fighting over a piece of pizza someone dropped. after a couple minutes a huge seagull came in and swooped it up. all the birds squawked and stood there dumbfounded. we couldn’t stop laughing!!!!

#outside. matt and i took a walk this morning in the frigid cold.
monday | january 28:
hubby was my photographer for a new fancylittlethings.com post next week. 🙂
i want to eat all of this. but i can’t. and i won’t. but i want to.
tuesday | january 29:
another outfit sneak peek. be sure to head over there on tuesday!
more sunshine means more backyard playing!
when you live in a house with boys, you frequently find things like this in your bed when you pull back the covers.
#grow was the prompt today and was inspired to capture the growth of this awesome kid.

i’m sticking with my workout goals for the week so i can treat myself to chick-fil-a on friday. so having this in the house tonight is making me hungry, angry and like i wanna eat everything else in the house. i hate how much control food has over my life.
even though gibson got the first section down after a few tries, the rest of the script was just too complicated for the time they had to get it down. so matt played the anchor role instead. my gorgeous gal pal plays the sideline reporter and matt stayed up all night editing it. if you want to see the finished video that got laughs for days, head to youtube here. (it’s a funny and sarcastic bit that matt did with a local radio talk show host)
i found this personality test online and i don’t know why i even do these. the results are always the same and so obvious.
thursday | january 31:
today in the mail we got two free movie tickets from our kid’s dental office for referring a friend. i honestly have no idea who i referred but hey, these are our tickets to see the new die hard movie in a few weeks. oh yeah!!!

#you was today’s prompt from #projectlife365 and i could resist a selfie in my packers tee. still supporting my team!
so remember up there ^^ when i said i was working out and eating good all week so i could earn some chick-fil-a for lunch. okay so this facebook post explains how it went down. as you can tell by my spelling errors that i was quite distraught during this time while i was driving back to the restaurant to get the rest of my food and some extra goodies! hashtag: devastated.
i knew this would happen and thought it was hilarious. on myfitnesspal.com, when you complete a day, it tells you “if you ate like this everyday, you’d be whatever pounds in 5 weeks.” since today i ate a starbucks sandwich for breakfast and chick-fil-a (+ a coke and 2 chocolate chunk cookies for lunch), i was 910 calories over my goal, obviously. just got a little chuckle from it. clearly that’s the wrong direction i’m intending to go, and this will not be my everyday menu.
saturday | february 2:
today matt and i celebrate our 12 year wedding anniversary. and he had my favorite flowers sent to my office yesterday. they’ve opened up today…aren’t they gorgeous?
lessons learned from these last weeks:
i really can fight through the temptations of food when i need to.
family time can be captured anywhere and memories can made in the car or at the table.
when we all put effort into our kids’ education, we all benefit.
what have you learned this week?
