A few of my blog friends have been doing this meme for awhile. I take a lot of photos with my iphone but no one ever sees them so I figured, hey, why not?! Hopefully I’ll be better at remembering which photos were taken on what day. But I can promise nothing.
Progress is being made in different rooms of our new house. Sloooow progress. Here’s a sneak peek of the boy’s new colorful playroom!
The first coat of orange paint is up in Landon’s room. I’m gonna be honest and say that I’m not sure orange was the best choice. My nose was pretty scrunched up as I painted. But for the love of all that is holy, I’m gonna press on (possibly while wearing sunglasses), finish the second coat and hope it grows on me. For the record? Landon loves it.
The boys continue to surprise me with their new cool places they find to play. This precipitated a trip to the babies r us safety section. Good times.
Hello, lovahs. Our new washer/dryer set arrived. Not only does it clean clothes. But it is super pretty and makes cool sounds when it’s done. It also has a cold water sanitize setting that uses 92% less energy. This wanna-be crunchy mama is happy!
Severe weather including multiple tornado warnings managed to scare the shit out of everyone in our city and the Midwest as a whole. I am still having trouble accepting that a town two hours south of us was ripped to shreds. Word that a 16-month-old little boy was killed had me breaking down at work. I have hugged my kids a little tighter this week that is for sure.
It was nice to see a rainbow at the end of the week.
I met some wonderful bloggers from kansas city on Friday! I was chosen for a wendy’s promotion and it ended up being really fun to meet some local moms who blog (more on this tomorrow!).
We celebrated my dad’s retirement from teaching at a classic Kansas City restaurant called The Majestic. A live jazz band played including a cornet player, which just happens to be my dad’s instrument! Perfect. The steak was freaking amazeballs.
Then it was off to the AMC theater movie suites. I had never been here before but it was awesome! We sat in huge leather recliners and I got to put my feet up the whole movie! Also? Hangover 2 is hilariously inappropriate. Two thumbs up!
The next day the brigs and I weren’t feeling well. We had a wave of the vomits come through our household this past week. First Naaman, then Landon & lastly me and the Brigs. Thank the Lord it was short-lived so we can enjoy the rest of our long holiday weekend.
p.s. who knows how to get the smell of barf out of carpet? Please and thanks.
Did you take any photos on your phone this week? Well then, link up silly!
