Is it just me or did this week FLY by???!!!
Are you on Instagram (I’m jeannettg) and have lots of great pics with nothing to do with them? Put them to use and tell the story of your week!
Henry was student of the week this week for good behavior, and this questionnaire was part of his special bulletin board.
There are a few things that CRACK me up about this:
a) he doesn’t OWN a remote control plane (is this a hint?), b) the closest he gets to video games are the few apps on the iPad we let him play about once a week (if that), c) he really could eat PB&J sammies three times a day if I let him, d) we have probably been to McDonald’s all of five times in the last five years, and d) I have no idea what “I had a little turtle” is.
I like to have fresh flowers in my house at all times if I can manage it. Usually, I cut flowers from my garden, but it’s not quite blooming yet. So I grabbed these from our farmer’s market.
Bright red ranunculas on my yellow coffee table?
Jill’s hair is getting sooooo long.
And it’s so thin and whispy and pin straight…I’m seriously considering getting it cut into a bob.
Part of me hates the thought of cutting her hair so young, but I also think she’d look ridiculous cute.
The kids were given this Thomas the Train Alphabet Book a while ago, and I always cringe when they want me to read it aloud to them.
X is for Xmas??? Really people?!
Look, I’m not even getting into the whole “crossing out Christ” controversy…but more simply, how do I read that out loud?
I mean, Xmas isn’t a word at all. And if I pronounce it Christmas…well, that starts with a C.
I’m about to throw the book away entirely for this page alone.
I sat down to blog the other morning…and decided I needed to do this instead.
I’m notoriously bad about Bible time.
And yet, I feel so much better when I do it.
Out of the blue, and a complete surprise, I got a package of edible fruit.
And it made me cry. That this blogging friend from the other side of the country (literally) thought of little old me and wanted to encourage my family and let me know she has been praying for us.
Amazing hearts. All of you. I’m so encouraged by it.
These are from last week, but since I didn’t get a proper InstaFriday post up, I thought I’d include them.
I stopped by Stitch Market last week (because you know, I hadn’t gotten enough of handmade goodness at Queen Bee just the week before!).
First of all, these soaps by Poppy Soap Co…HEAVENLY. Oh my word you guys.
And the fact that when you buy a bar for yourself, she donates a bar to the local women’s shelter?!
Not only am I blown away by the generosity…I love the idea that yes, even the women at the shelters want to smell pretty and be beautiful too.
And we can honor that.
My friend Joy makes these fantastic signs out of reclaimed wood.
She doesn’t have a shop…yet.
I’m working on that. ;)
All of the jewelry from Saylor Rose was gorgeous.
But I really wanted those pretty necklaces with the lockets.
I was good though.
Which is bad.
Except that now I’m seeing she is having 20% off her shop…uh oh.
Look away Andy. Just look away…
