monday morning: in an unprecedented event I shaved my legs. It’s in the nineties here and I figured my legs needed a break from pants.
monday afternoon: Grandma Connie & Grandpa Neil came up to see the kiddos. I had to work but while I was gone Landon picked me some weeds flowers.
monday night: I accidentally purchased the wrong hair color. I usually go the safe route and buy honey butter. This is pretty light and I’m scared but also thinking I should just bit the bullet and use it.
monday night: I am trying to move out of my comfort zone as far as style goes. I was thinking about changing my make-up and nail colors. This is a metallic color by payless’ new line and essie’s Absolutely Shore, which is a subtle sea-green color.
tuesday morning: Take a look at this mess. This is supposed to be my jewelry box.
#1. This is dated and I want a new way to keep my jewelry organized so I can easily see what I’ve got to choose from. This is one of the reasons I never wear accessories. They are all stuck together.
#2. Note the fake green beans and waffles, which belong in the playroom. Ahhhh, the glamorous life of a mom.
tuesday afternoon: the boys are always doing fun craft projects at daycare. It makes me feel good to know they do fun things while there. This is Brig’s license plate and those are his hand prints! Definitely saving this one!
tuesday night: Another problem area in our new house. This is supposed to be my office. It’s set up in the kitchen and it is not working for me. As you can see it is a disaster. I have no idea what is in that pile. Also? That person in the picture frame. Yeah, I don’t know them. It came with it and I have yet to add something personal to it. Help me. I am beyond frustrated with how to go about organizing this house!
wednesday morning: speaking of trying new things. I bought some hair bands. Extra bonus for making me look younger. Maybe a bit too young?
wednesday morning: getting a long overdue pedicure. My feet were in bad shape. It’s never good when the person taking care of your feet continuously comment on how awful they look. Yes, lady. They are my feet. I already know. But look how cute my new light green color turned out! The lady tried to get me to do hot pink. I told her I was not a hot pink person.
wednesday night: I forgot to take photos of my husband’s family BBQ! Lots of people I hadn’t seen for so long and I’m super sad I can’t show this off. But I am hoping to snag my sister-in-law’s photos and show you soon! This is a lake I passed that night on the long drive home. That’s a boat out there! It’s so serene at night.
all day thursday: on this day we had our huge company retreat. I was kind of dreading an all-day kumbaya session of “we’re great!” and “keep up the good work!” But then I won an award! You guys, I have not gotten an award in ages. I was so surprised. This is the highest honor you can get in my department. I got to walk up and receive my award from the owner of our company and 300 coworkers clapped and cheered for me. In case I haven’t mentioned it, I am the manager of volunteers for an amazing hospice company. I have been feeling really bad about being away from my kiddos so much lately and I desperately needed to be validated for my hard work. This couldn’t have come at a better time. I’ll talk more about what I do later. But for now – take a look at my awesome plaque that I will proudly display in my office!
thursday night: even though I was in a hurry to get dinner on the table after a long day I realized I needed to give the boys something nutritional. Fruit always seems to work for my guys and I even put it in a pretty arrangement on the plate! Then they smashed and ate it =)
saturday morning: riding a bike with his helmet on inside the house. Oh, and all while eating a waffle. My little multi-tasker
saturday morning: I found this nifty little thing at a craft store. It’s a full scale staircase wall template to help me put photos up the staircase! Yes, I’m cheating. No, I don’t care. I am decoration-impaired and need all the help I can get.
saturday morning: Brigham likes to lay down on the floor and pout when I scold him. As you can see his pouting never lasts for long.
saturday morning: both my boys on the built-in bench in the playroom. I have big plans for this little spot so stay tuned!
saturday morning: this is the usual state of the playroom. Do you think I should paint the walls and if so, what color?
saturday afternoon: I just adore this photo. He looks so grown up, does he not? I asked him what he was doing and he said, “I’m bogging, mommy.” ::head desk::
