i’m linking up my weekly phone pics with jeannett again this week. are you?
i love my ribbon and i just got in a new order and needed to organize it – yay! i get almost all my ribbon here.
summer list – i took the kids for a walk downtown: check! and then to the library: check! my oldest is going through almost a book a day so we’ll be spending a lot of time there!
i found this sweet little heart in the sidewalk crack
we couldn’t even make it home without her reading a book.
coffee: his and hers
summer list – hiked to the top of madonna mountain: check!
so almost at the top of the mountain there were 2 ways to get to the top. boys vs. girls! girls kicked tail and poor silas, as he’s nearing the finish and we’re cheering him on, he falls smack! down on his belly. so sad!
the world’s smallest circus came to town. we decided to steal the kids’ lemonade money and take them to the circus! yay for sneaky parenting ;)
for a one ring circus, it was actually really good!
summer list – camp in the backyard: check! do it 2 nights in a row… now i’m just showing off ;) the kids are at such fun ages that things are just more fun now!
my waking view in the tent
apparently, going for a hike, the circus, sleeping in the tent, and swimming all day make for one tired boy.
i just switched my email address and it was a pain for a few days. see that HUGE number? yeah, it freaked me out, too! but now i have been able to get it down to zero every day – so awesome! now thats not counting the 30+ that i still need to respond to in another folder…
sean and i each take time to date the kids, and it was my turn with lily. we went to tea at the madonna inn. she loved the tea (with about 2 tablespoons of pink sugar) and the gigantic pink cream puff. i love that she got herself all dressed up!
i repurposed some of my decorates from jeannett’s shower to 4th of july decorates. i just swapped out the orange yarn to red yarn. then the wind picked up and tangled it all into a knotty mess. boo.
a girlfriend and i swapped kids a couple days this week – i had all 6 first then she had them all a couple days later. its amazing how productive i can be when my kids are happily playing! when i had all the kids at my house i organized my entire hutch – it was awesome!
i added more beachy bloom bags to my shop this week. i love the soft rope handles contrasted with the shiny patent fabric.
we had a super mellow 4th, celebrated with friends in our backyard, a bbq and popsicles – easy peasy.
and then we put a movie on for the kids and took a late afternoon nap!
on my day when the kids were at a playdate, i made myself a big ol’ bowl o’ salad and watched some trash tv. and then i ate a cookie.
i finally started working with the fabric i brought back from india! the ikat fabric is not from india, but the others are – it was really challenging, but fun, to make it work! and i am super excited with the brand new product i came up with!
its been a really really long time since we had new petal drop necklaces in the shop, but here is the first batch – all french cut ones – aaaah, i love these! i’m hoping to have them all listed in the next couple days, unless i get a rush of energy to get them done sooner…
we already went to the barn today to pick olalaberries and hang out with friends, and we’re going to watch a concert in the park tonight. we are making the most of this summer and it has been so. much. fun!
