I feel like that is what this poor blog is right now! So sorry for all the sporadic posting. I’m pretty sure that as soon as I get this routine down, The Boss will be out of school for the summer and then I will go back to my old routine.
This week has been all about the painting! I’ve got some before and after photos for you!
Now remember, this is just the primer to cover up the yellow and the red. I am almost done, and I think that I will be able to finish the last three walls on Thursday of this week if all goes well.
Then, hopefully, I will be able to start putting the actual color on the walls! Woohoo! It’s already looking so much brighter downstairs!
I know that a lot of you read Hungry Runner Girl and you have probably seen her talking about cottage cheese and grapes recently. I finally broke down and tried it this week.
And, as usual, with all things food, she was totally point. That is the shizz. I eat it every day now.
We used a fortune teller booth in our video this week and I loved how it turned out. I used a globe from a light fixture and some old fabric I found! Isn’t it adorable?
Proud mama moment! Both of my kiddos are killing it in school. Mr. Mister is taking a Maymester that is kicking his butt all over the place but he is doing so well!
The Boss, that girl has put all of my worries to bed. She is working so hard and I could not be prouder. I admire her perseverance so much, she is really thriving in school and is very happy.
Yes, I still miss her, but it is easier when I see her so happy. She loves getting grades and getting that feedback. We never did grades at home, we just worked on something until she had mastered it and then moved on.
Friday was a good mail day! I got some new earrings from my Mom for Christmas. :) Yes, for Christmas. She had bought me a beautiful cocktail ring that didn’t fit so we talked and I had mentioned that it would be wonderful to have something that I could wear more often so she exchanged the ring for these earrings!
I love them! They are real grown up jewelry but simple enough for me to wear every day.
I wore them that night when The Boss and I went to….the mall together! Surprise!
Our mall has a new candy store Lolli and Pops and I finally went in. I think everyone on my gift list this year will get something from here! They have so much to choose from. I decided on some chocolate covered gummy bears (delish) and The Boss got some sort of baby pacifier tiny little candies.
They also had some Japanese Oreo’s. I am kicking myself for not getting these that night, but I was seriously in love with those gummy bears. I promise I will get the Oreo’s next time and tell you all about it, because I love you and I know you want me to.
Yes, I had my race yesterday, but I will catch you up on that tomorrow because this post is already far too long.
Favorite candy from the candy store?
When is the last day of school where you are? The Boss gets out June 6th.
