Share your simple, sweet moments from the week using nothing but cell phone pictures.
It doesn’t have to be Instagram (which requires an iPhone), any cell phone pics will do!
Andy turned 31 this week.
When I told Henry that it was his Daddy’s birthday, he asked: “Will there be party hats?!”
Why yes son. There most certainly will be.
Off to WalMart I trudged for some Transformers party gear.
Because what’s the fun in turning 31 if you can’t have licensed paper products?
Henry started AWANA this week.
Being that I didn’t grow up going to Christian church, I’m not entirely sure what this is beyond a fun way to memorize Bible verses while wearing an entirely too dorky vest.
Bonus points for the church literally being half a block from our house and giving him a ride to class in the bike trailer!
Oh Pinterest, how I love thee!
A plastic globe on clearance at Target for $3.24 hung from the playroom ceiling?
Extra fabulous because when Andy went to Home Depot for the light kit, he found a couple of pendant lights on clearance for $14 each…the plain light kit was $10 each…so I got really cool hanging mounts to really give it a more finished look!
(We threw away the glass shades that came with the pendants and just replaced them with the globe halves.)
I wish I remembered to use my bread machine more often.
Everytime I do I kick myself for waiting so long between uses.
I made this bread.
(I’ll save you from reading all 250+reviews and tell you to add 1 tbls. of olive oil and when it’s baking, put four ice cubes in an oven safe bowl on the rack below the bread and then add four more ice cubes 5 minutes later.)
Oh, and for the record, I don’t ever actually bake the bread in the machine…I just use the dough cycle and then cook the bread in the oven. Always. Otherwise you have little dense bricks…
We took an impromptu bike ride this week.
And stopped at See’s Candy.
Jilly’s picking up on signing quite well.
It always makes me tear up when she asks for “more”.
I love that she is communicating with us.
I love that she can do it.
I just love it all.
Lu is shockingly good at navigating around Apple products.
We’ve never sat down and taught her how to do any of it…she just kinda figured it out.
If ever I don’t know where she is, I know I can likely find her “hiding” in a corner of my room (under a chair) with either the iPad or my iPhone.
Kinda stresses me out.
We sponsor a little boy in Haiti through Compassion International.
We got a sweet letter from him this week and we wrote back and included some stickers.
I really stink at the letters. I never really know what to say. It feels forced and I wish it didn’t.
My entry in this week’s InstaChallenge: What is something you really dislike?
Blech, gag, nasty, I want to vomit just thinking about it.
Californians seem to have a special affinity for Ranch.
They dip their french fries and pizza in it…they slather it in their burgers, and just about anything else you can imagine.
There’s always ketchup on the table at restaurants, but waitresses automatically ask “Did you want a side of Ranch with that?”
I will never ever ever understand it.
Now it’s your turn to grab a button and link up!
If you’re up for it, the next InstaChallenge is to snap a picture of your last DIY project. It can be something you made/sewed/painted/installed whatever! It can be big, little, expensive or free. Whatever you want, as long as YOU did it!
