linking up my phone pics this week again with jeannett!
this girl got glasses! i’ve yet to take a pic, but she’s so stinkin’ cute in them!
a little snippet from jeannett’s shower
and another snippet
so many people ask me how on earth i can have white couches. 2 reasons: 1) slipcovers and 2) bleach
but what do i despise? putting the slipcovers back on after i wash them. ugh. full on work out. like, sweat and everything.
so i usually wash them, let them sit on the couch for a day or so and get all wrinkly, drink a protein shake and then tackle the job ;)
checking things off our summer list!
just keeping it real. this is what my feet look like every night. these socks are curtesy of mique from blissdom last year, but my crazy sock collection is quite large.
i pinned this for my girl and she took right to it!
another thing to check off on the list: playing with shaving cream!
really, for about $1.50 (maybe?) this is good clean fun.
and the yummy smell afterwards doesn’t hurt
something new for us, and marking 2 things off our list: shaving cream ON the slip ‘n’ slide
it was fun, but water works much better
sometimes things on our summer list are a little bit selfish on my part. getting ice ream was one of them, although no one complained! i don’t like chocolate ice cream AT ALL, but chocolate malted crunch is the best!
since sean and my dad were gone for a few days with sean’s dad and uncle fishing in oregon, my mom and i decided to tackle a project or 2. or 7. we were on a roll! this welcome sign my mom made is for the loft and was made on a slat of an old gate. she printed out the words in the size font she wanted and just taped them in place, then traced around the letters really hard with a pencil to etch the wood. then we filled in the lines with craft paint.
a little project i finally got to
another double whammy (2 things off our summer list): having a lemonade stand AND donating the proceeds ($42!).
just finalizing the details on our porch bed (to be revealed soon).
fabric.com was a little, uh, creative (?) with their packaging of my latest order.
every wednesday, i am shocked to see how quickly people link up to wiww. i always post at exactly midnight and i thought it would be a little funny to post 2 minutes later. i know, it was mean!
my late night date: a pb cup s’more, people mag, jug o’ water, and a show on my laptop.
seanie’s home! and he brought home dinner!
painted an old hand-me-down coffee table. and ran out of paint just before finishing. errrgh!
every time my parents visit they take us down the street to a sweet little mexican restaurant. and every time we all order the same drinks: strawberry margs for the ladies and cadillac margs for the boys. i always want to walk down there at about 3pm and get one to go. not sure why i can’t? ;)
for some reason, i struggled to get my summer mantle right. i tried about 10 different combinations and finally settled on “good enough”.
more projects are on the way, so it will be another busy week for me!
