a nap on my front porch is not a bad way to start the weekend! the temperature was perfect, and no one knew i was out there.
for months the kids have been playing in the upper corner of our back yard – the one area yet to be touched by us. they deemed it “the fort”. i deemed it the death trap, with nail filled boards balancing precariously on top of tomato cages, and blankets tossed on top with holes getting ripped in them. but… i didn’t stop them because they never fought when they played in the fort! so i convinced sean to give me an hour and help me build a somewhat-less-rickety fort for them. we grabbed lumber around the yard and a couple old sheets, and done!
sean and lily are quite a duo in the kitchen. they made these lemon lime bars from scratch and they were so good!
after weeks of ignoring the growing piles in teh playroom, i finally spent 30 minutes to clean it up. THIRTY MINUTES! thats all it took. why didn’t i do this weeks ago rather than get annoyed for weeks instead? remind me of that tomorrow when its a wreck again.
i’ve had this game for years, and used to play a nicer version of it at my grandma’s, but i couldn’t remember the name! i got all sorts of names from comments on instagram and facebook, but i think the correct answer is hi-q or solitaire.
did you know you can send all sorts of things in the mail? my sister-in-law suggested i send this pool noodle to gracie at camp (we pick her up today – yay!!!!). but there are so many more fun things you can mail, just look at all the comments here and here.
loving my glittered sandals! the weather has been great, about mid 70’s pretty consistently.
it has been about a year since i got this fabric for my girls room, and i am just getting to making their quilts! lily was an awesome helper in the process, handing me one strip at a time to sew together. i think i should hire her ;)
one step further in the process. i love how quickly this type of quilt is coming together.
new neutral bunting is in the shop
i drove over to my parents’ house yesterday to get gracie from camp. tsh and haley of the tiny twig joined me on my ride as i listened to them on the simple mom podcast. so fun to hear familiar voices.
we’re at bass lake to pick up gracie – yay! have a happy weekend!
