Who else is loving the beautiful weather lately? We have been outside a lot so far this week. After a day of fresh air, the kids go to sleep so quickly in their beds at night. It has been wonderful!
We had a pretty “quiet” weekend here for our house. My expectation for this weekend was to clean my house. It did not happen. I tackled laundry but hardly made a dent in cleaning. I blinked and the weekend was over and I am not quite sure what I did!? This weekend got away from me! I will someday get my house clean. At this moment I am deciding between folding laundry and sleep. I can hear all the Mama’s out there shouting “sleep!!!!”.
What a week!!! It was a very hard busy week for all of us here. We made it though and that is what counts, right!? We did have a lot of happy intermixed with the chaos which I am happy to share with you!
Inserting a BIG foot in my mouth today as I announce that we bought a MINI VAN! The next time I open my mouth and say “I will NEVER…” can someone just slap me!? “Never,” is such a foolish word. Before you all panic yes we do still have our Jeep Wrangler. We have been a ONE vehicle family for almost 10 years!!! We always said to one another that when it got too hard we would cave and buy a second. Over the past year it got really hard! We now are a 2 vehicle family, however, the Jeep Wrangler will be sold in the very near future also. Last Summer we did not even put the soft top on. We have become old and lazy and need vehicles that do more for us with less physical energy from us. It is time! We plan to sell and replace it with a slightly newer vehicle. So many changes…did I mention I do not like change?
We made it! We survived Easter weekend. My house is a complete mess so I will be spending the morning cleaning. Somehow my house looks like a tornado hit it even though we spent 90% of our day out yesterday. I am as confused as you are! We celebrated Easter all weekend long and just had a blast!
I am back to my curly haired self and the men in my life are very happy. Miss Charlie however, is sad that we are not twins anymore. You cannot please them all. A fresh hair cut is the best feeling EVER and a great way to start off Spring. It has been warm enough the past few days to bring out some of my spring and summer wardrobe. I have been on a mad hunt this past week for the perfect Easter Sunday dress but may just wear something I already own. I am taking the kids alone to church that morning (Jordan is working) so anything that might malfunction while holding a 1 year old is out. Unfortunately for me deep V-neck dresses seem to be all the rage this year. Also, the older I get, the shorter dresses seem to be getting. Haha.
Judging by this photo my weekend looks like it was pretty zen. In reality, however it was not. I somehow crammed a weeks worth of busy into a couple of days. I went to work on Friday night and the floor I was on was really short staffed for the weekend so I volunteered to work again Saturday night to help out. It was a good idea because I am now off for the rest of the week. I am very tired though.
This week went by fast and furious and I am so happy because the quicker these weeks go by, the quicker we get into warmer weather. Once summer begins it can slow right down! Haha, don’t we all wish that is how it worked? I have a feeling this summer will fly by. I signed Miss Charlie up for summer soccer and this year she will go twice a week. We also booked a weekend camping trip with friends this past week and I am in the midst of planning our family vacation. Lots of fun and happy things to look forward to! Now let’s get on to the happy from this week:
First things first, if you are looking at this picture and wanting this box click HERE(includes a discount). I kept seeing pictures of the fabfitfun box on pinterest for about six months and then finally caved last Fall. I am so glad I did. I have been happy with all of my boxes but I think this one is my favourite and not surprising it has the biggest retail value of $369!!!
I am fully aware that not everyone gets this excited about my book reviews, but I am and that is what counts, right!? I am happily patting myself on the back right now because I am halfway through my reading challenge. I have read 8 out of my goal of 16 books so far this year! Do you follow me on goodreads? If not click here. If you do not have an account I highly suggest getting one. Trust me when I say if I have the time to read so do you! #priorities
