Move-in day from almost exactly (oxymoron?) a year ago.
This brings back memories of those New Town jitters and the reminder that moving IS NOT FUN. It’s cheesy to say, but I can’t believe it’s been a year since we crossed the CO border with our fatty Penske truck. What a year it’s been!
I caught a nasty cold/sore throat in early June. Hubs took good care of his feverish, cranky, greasy (but very beautiful) bride by serving me loads of tea with honey and making delicious HOMEMADE chicken noodle soup. And, he froze the leftovers so we can enjoy it for those days when I neglect to go grocery shopping (read: I never go grocery shopping because I hate it).
Pay no mind that it’s mid summer and I am still spring cleaning. A few weeks ago, I tackled our pantries. This past weekend was Operation Bathroom. It was in *dire* need of some spring cleaning. Just look at this fine display of disgusting:
My bathroom never quite recovered from my hasty flight home back from MN. So, it’s been looking like this for a while.
I dragged EVERYTHING out. Everything got wiped down, vacuumed out, scrubbed and sorted. It took me forever! But now I have order and it makes me feel so much better.
Yes. More. Seriously, it’s baby mania out there, I can’t keep up!
I had to reference my own blog (how precious) to re-learn how to blanket stitch, like I did for these mustache onesies. Speaking of which, those were gifted to these two cuddle bugs who I just recently met a few weeks ago, when I snuck back to MN without telling you…
Oh, the cute!
Where was I? Yes. Baby crafts. Two more little bundles arrived in May and June, a boy and a girl. I whipped these up, using material I already had in my craft stash. As an aside, I’m still on a craft buying freeze that I declared over a year ago, you should be proud!
They are crude but made with love/ineptness.
and for Jordan:
My plan is to get them in the mail tomorrow but I’ve caught a bad case of the Doesn’t Do Much as of late. Wish me luck!
I got mine at the local Rite-Aid when they were doing a 40% Revlon sale. Wish I would have had more room in the budget because they have a ton of fun funky colors to choose from!
2. God, I love this song by Gotye. Please tell me you do too.?
3. This version, by Walk Off the Earth, will make you love it even more.
4. Totally switching gears here, but Hubs and I have been loving this salsa. We bought it first because it was cheap, but now I can’t stand the thought of enjoying anything else. You can find it any most grocery stores, even Walmart.
5. Our garden. It’s adorable and still alive! Yay spring!
6. NAPS. Who doesn’t love naps?!?
7. When we ran the Bolder Boulder on Memorial Day! Whoa, it was crazytown.
We raced right out of May and into summatime. I’m totally stoked. Am I too old to say that?
