life rearranged

linking up my weekly phone pics with jeannett again this week!

my pics are much fewer than usual since we’re trying to cut back on our phone usage, especially after listening to this sermon.

plus we were working on our front yard and i didn’t really have my phone on my for 3 days.

my parents worked so hard this week at my house!  they always do when they visit, but this week was particularly laborious!  our entire front yard was covered in thick weeds and grasses and we’re slowly in the process of renovating the yard on a very tight budget.  i can’t tell you how happy i am to just see dirt rather than brown weeds!

my niece and a friend were also up visiting this week, so we took them to pismo’s old west cinnamon rolls for a yummy breakfast treat!

i loved this motel sign on our 2 block walk down to the beach!

pismo tends to be overcast and chilly in the mornings, but at 8:30 am it was 74*!  i so wanted to head back down there later in the afternoon, but we ran out of time.  and i ran out of energy!  this beach is great for sand dollar searching – i think we found 5 or 6 in about 30 minutes.

a little design work i’m doing for our school – i had an old globe i bought for a few bucks and painted chalkboard paint directly on it – i love how it turned out!  i may be doing this to one of my own soon…

not a phone pic, but i still thought i’d share this!  groopdealz is offering another fun deal that i thought you might like to take advantage of – these cute stretchy ruffly cotton tanks are only $8!  i think i want the white one – so pretty!

ok, friends – have a great weekend!  sean and i are getting a TWO NIGHT GETAWAY without kids this weekend, thanks to a swap with friends.  i am so stinkin’ excited!

    Love the globe! Did you just carefully paint around the land masses? It looks so good, but I’m afraid mine would not look so good!

    Your front yard looks like my backyard. Doing the same thing. YIKES. Fun isn’t it.. Not.
