Weekend Wrap-up

This Week: We've somehow gotten nearly to the end of July without noticing it? Where has the Summer gone?! Don't get me wrong, I mean the 100+ degree weather every day has us spending time in the shade and retreating to the city pool and lakes whenever we get the chance, and I love Fall so much and can't really wait for it to be here officially, but I want to live it up for the rest of the Summer and not let it pass by without creating a few more memories to remember in the Winter. As for other news Lydia is crawling forward finally (and with a vengeance I might add), we finally made it to the Farmer's Market, Martin and I had a date and left the house without any agenda at all (the best), I think I finally finished John's room (tour coming soon!), and we picked apricots as the sun set, and then in the dark.haha
To-do's and Goals for the Week:
- finally get caught up on my laundry folding (is that even possible?)
- get the girls shelves painted
- put the doors on the woodshed
- publish two videos (woot woot! any requests? *wink*)
- cover the couch cousions
- start a new show
- bottle the apricots
- get a hair trim
- keep the flower garden alive in this heat
- take the kids to the park every day
- take a nap at least twice
- teach myself to knit (hooray!)

A Few Facts: 

  • I may or may not be drinking a cup of Starbucks salted caramel hot chocolate as I type this
  • I can't snap my fingers. Who can't snap their fingers? haha even Ellie can, and she loves snapping them in my face.haha
  • I got my first set of almond nails this week, and now I give the best back and head rubs in the whole world. ask martin:)
Something Awesome for today: getting that parking spot right next to the door, and hitting green lights all the way home, 

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Oh my goodness, your to do list for the week makes me want to take a nap! haha! Love all of the photos! :)

  2. You give me an inspiration to make my own to - do list. )

  3. I actually just commented on another post for a video tutorial for your Kate inspired updo! I'd love to see more videos of all your hairstyles :)

  4. Knitting is the best! I love having something to do with my hands, and the fact that I get to make beautiful things is a bonus!

    Have you heard of Ravelry? It's a free site for knitters, sort of like Facebook for knitters or crocheters, but it's way more than that. They have a database of patterns, and thousands are available for free. There are also a lot of very helpful people if you're having trouble with something. If you join I'm katherinelynn04 over there.

  5. just have to say your blog is awesome, but i have one question....

    how do you get your pictures that small and side by side..?

  6. Hey, this is random but I was wondering if you could try to post your youtube videos on your blog a little more. I am subscribed on youtube but I so rarely go there. That's definitely laziness on my part but maybe if you even just included a link so we could go right to them from your blog.

    You're gorgeous. And wonderful.

  7. I also can't snap my fingers! I have been made fun of it my whole life and I can't tell you how many people have tried to teach me, these fingers just won't do that. Thanks for making me feel like I am not the only one in the world.

  8. I can't snap my fingers either. I actually hate admitting that to people because they always seem to think that they'll be the person that will be able to teach me. Like I haven't spent the last 20+ years of my life trying!
