project life 2014–week 8

sunday: after church, we tried to have brunch at the maltby café, but it was over an hour wait for a table, so we wound up at denny’s instead. of course, I had to put the cream in my coffee the proper way… perfected in high school. only once has this turned out badly for me… or rather, for the person sitting across from me.2014-02-261

monday: shane finally decided to pull his big bin of legos out from under his bed and make them community property. awesome timing, as the kids all had a week off of school. 001

wednesday: I had to go to the mall to buy some new shoes for aerobics. I bribed the kids to go with me by promising them something from the food court. layla got a pretzel, micah got a blizzard, and shane and I both got orange julius. there is something about an orange julius (strawberry, actually) while at the mall that just feels right.006

thursday: operation clean off the counter in the laundry room! I found the surface of the counter! that’s a big deal. and sorted through all the stuff we’d saved from layla’s 1st and 2nd grade years. lots and lots of stuff got recycled. 2014-02-262

also thursday: shane and a friend went snowboarding. it has been dumping for over a week up there. crazy amounts of new snow, and it snowed the whole time they were up there, too. he had pretty much the best time ever.014

friday: finally getting layla started on her very own project life album! she is so excited. her pictures arrived in the mail from shutterfly and I got them all sorted out for her. she’s starting with her 2nd grade year, beginning at her 7th birthday. watching her get some much joy out of this process makes me sooooo very happy!!!027

saturday: shane is quite predictable in his interests. cars, trucks, and farm equipment… this cracked me up. I walked past him and peaked over his shoulder… “um. why are you shopping for combines?”034

a couple skinnies:

layla got about 4 inches whacked off her hair on friday, followed by lunch at panera. I thought this was a good plan until micah’s mac and cheese arived and it was the wrong color. OMG. end of the world. I wound up bringing it home and dave ate it for dinner. that kid.

project life 2014–week 7

sunday: it started snowing saturday night, and left us just enough in the morning to play in AND justify stying home from church. the kids had fun playing, building snowmen, attempting to snowboard, and eating snow. 112117

monday: stretching out after aerobics, I enlisted a friend’s help, another decided to help some more!007

wednesday: my dad called and asked me to stop at the store for him. he gave me his list and I went to pick it up. looking at my cart made me laughing so hard. it’s SO typically my parents! kern’s guava nectar, brown & serve sausages, buddig lunch meats, henry weinhard’s beer, and broccoli and cauliflower. these things are all staples in my parents’ fridge and have been for as long as I can remember.008

also wednesday: finally took layla and micah to target to pick out some valentines. they got right to work as soon as we got home. micah chose star wars valentines, that had mini glow sticks (lightsabers) that went with them. layla went with truth or dare valentines and stuck a hershey kiss to them.016

friday: happy valentine’s day! dave left little treats for the kids to find in the morning. layla got a rose. she was so excited!


also friday: dave and I had a romantic night out planned for weeks! reservations at daniel’s broiler for dinner, then we went for drinks at the hard rock café, walked down to the waterfront and rode on the great wheel, then stopped at one more downtown bar before heading home. we had such a fun night! can’t wait for next month’s date night!2014-02-172030

a couple of skinny extras:

the reason I will wind up in the looney bin and…

the crazy hex-tile stripes on the floor of the ladies’ room in daniel’s. I swear they put it there just to mess with people who have had too much wine.

project life 2014 week 6

sunday: minor glitter disaster in layla’s room…2014-02-09

monday: 3rd and 4th grade music performance at the school. it was hoedown themed. lots of fun, and layla loved dressing up like a cowgirl. they sang “home on the range” and similar songs, line danced and square danced. lots of fun. 010

tuesday: the “costco train” always seems to come by when I don’t have micah with me. this makes him sad.053

also tuesday: getting my hairs braided by my favorite stylist.055

wednesday: yes, my husband uses my head as a phone rest.074

thursday: this cat’s obsession with getting into the shower the second I get out is getting a little out of hand. he would not get off the mat so I could get out.075

saturday: dave changing the toyota’s oil.102

and a big collage from the hoedown.2014-02-091

and another from saturday, when shane discovered that our little swampy wetland in the woods was frozen solid.2014-02-092

and that’s a wrap. (I love that I’m staying caught up! granted, it’s only 6 weeks in, but it’s a good start.)

monday: layla, diligently circling everything she wants in the latest AG catalog… in other words, everything.010

tuesday: killing some time at petco. they had 2 cages with a ton of mice in them. they were hilarious to watch.023

wednesday: some early morning tickles from daddy before he headed off to work. this makes micah very sad. (the leaving, not the tickling.)029

thursday: finally checking out the new exploring garden at the library.2014-01-253

friday: I got to follow this all the way down paradise lake road. a trailer full of steaming manure. it was awesome.044
