So we had a hectic morning and I just NOW finally got a chance to sit down at the computer to do my InstaFriday post.
I apologize, but I do hope you’ll forgive me.
Besides, I come bearing gifts…in the form of a giveaway…in the form of a $599 giveaway.
Basically, I’m buying your love and forgiveness. I’m totally okay with it. ;)
I’ll tell you more…it’s at the end of the post. Don’t skip too far ahead.
Hello hydrangeas from the garden in an artisan bowl gifted to me by family.
I like you.
Even if Jill tries to eat your petals regularly.
I made more homemade laundry detergent this week.
Figured I should probably stock up before Walty-Poo makes his debut.
Our ten year anniversary was on June 22nd.
Which was also the date of Jilly’s IEP meeting (which went really well!).
In something classic out of a Harlequin Romance novel, we celebrated by stopping by Costco.
My life is fabulous. I’m sorry if you’re jealous.
Because the very next day was Henry’s fifth birthday…and the three way birthday party we were throwing for the kids.
Normally I wouldn’t combine everyone’s birthday like that, but with a fourth birth on the way I decided it was just gonna have to be a joint celebration.
Besides, they don’t know any better at this age anyway.
I did a rainbow theme and made the kids rainbow cake in a jar. Everyone else got cupcakes.
Since I’m absurdly pregnant, I didn’t have it in me to do the pin-worthy party of personalized cupcake toppers and centerpieces and all those other things that would have me featured on other blogs.
So I stuck with rainbow rows of balloons and sno-cones in every color.
Except that the gentle summer breeze made the balloons hit against the patio ceiling and popped all but three of them by the time the party started.
Amazing how listening to 68 balloons pop in rapid succession…68 balloons you blew up by MOUTH…can make a girl almost cry.
Also liable to make a girl cry?
Miss Thang’s new favorite hobby of emptying out every drawer she can get her grubby hands on.
Every. single. day.
I don’t know why I bother folding clothes anymore.
Miss Thang herself.
When she’s not emptying out every drawer in my house.
I’m a waffle girl.
Give me a big Belgian waffle over pancakes any day.
Lucky for me I had some One Kings Lane credit and snagged this puppy up with my affiliate credits.
We’ve had waffles for dinner more than once.
Oh, and that little itty bitty giveaway I mentioned?
It’s for this bad boy.
An Oreck Magnesium upright AND the Ultimate Handheld vac.
Worth 599 big ones.
You’re welcome in advance to the winner.
Now…grab a button, link up, and leave comment love on at least two other linker uppers!
