it feels like the exit of winter around here lately.
and you know what that means?
i feel like cleaning. and crafting. and being outside.
sunday | february 10:
started out the day by cleaning out the game closet. i should have taken a before picture but i was already sorting puzzle pieces and game cards when i thought of it. but it pretty much looked like toys ‘r’ us threw up in there.
part of the day was helping marshall organize his room too. he was happy to get a few toys from under his bed. it also came to my attention that under the bed is where the carpet is the cleanest. kinda makes me want to have picnics under here (if we could fit), knowing how the rest of my rental brown carpets look these days. yuk.
monday | february 11:
over the weekend i finished this fun string + nail art. it’s okay if you missed it, you can find it here.
monday also started off the week with a junk food dinner. oh chick-fil-a, you send my soul right to heaven. but you are the devil sometimes, taunting me with your delicious ways. i must.stay…a.way.
the sun was bright and the rays were warm. thus, hula-hooping commenced.
and this, my friends, is a stank-face because these cheap hula hoops have no weight and i can’t keep it up. attractive, i know. 😉
tuesday | february 12:
the boys and i did a little front yard cleanup and i let marshall help me drive the car back up into the driveway. pretty soon, i’ll be in the passenger seat, holding on for dear life, while gibson gets behind the wheel.
wednesday | february 13:
the lights of my little town glow on just the one side of the freeway. i love that.
there was no way marsh was going to write his name on all 32 valentines or we’d be giving them out for christmas. he did about 6 and i whipped through the rest. i do love how he wanted to do his best.
thursday | february 14:
he’s not completely awake yet, but he was nice enough to smile for me anyways.
from my boys!
we did the classy and romantic thing for valentine’s day and took the boys to incredible john’s. it’s an upscale chuck e. cheese’s. but when i say upscale, i really mean just a half step better. basically because of the fact that they have a roller coaster, bumper cars and a twister ride INSIDE. 🙂
someone is excited. someone else is less so.
friday | february 15:
the warm day meant flip-flips were a necessity. this is truly where my toes belong. i am complete.
saturday | february 16:
i realized this was a hearty list when i wrote it. and maybe my motivation was bigger than my weekend. but i did get 8 things done in my 3 days!
gonna take advantage of these sunny days before the rain comes back.
we needed 2 carts to shop at sam’s today but the check was a spacial expert and fit it all into one cart for us! $250 later!
texted this to my daddy because we always eat sardines together and we have a date to eat these when my folks get back from their travels. yum.
this made saturday morning errands bearable.
he’s just now getting interested in army men and he’s having fun setting up his battles.
the battle lines have been drawn. literally.
hubby brought home yellow tulips so my lemonade bottle felt useful.
he wanted to wear his mario hat and asked if i could drawn on his mustache too. this is my attempt to wash it off and all his silly faces.
sunday | february 17:
a little preview of the new family room setup. a full detailed post will be up in a couple weeks after i complete the arrangements of the shelves and add some flair!
matt took the boys to the park for some fun while i stayed home to work on the bookshelves.
awwwwwwwww. some of my favorite dudes right there.
he’s all tuckered out.
his hair. how he wears his hat. how much he enjoys his iPod touch. i love him. right now.
this afternoon, matt and gibson and i went to see a play called “children’s Letters to God”. outside of the theater was this lovely lady sitting on a bench. matt was trying to spit game, but she wouldn’t hear of it.
happy week to you!
