No school...No work for Iz. Yay!
For no good reason...10 random things:
1. We are redoing Ian's room over the long weekend.
He wanted a Seahawks theme. Eeeeeverything needed priming and painting.
My two least favorite things. Ugh. But it's looking pretty cool now.
Lowe's mixed Seahawks blue and green for us...and I'm surprising him with this:
2. Shelby gave a girl a bloody nose in combatives class.
3. We are heading back to West Point next month! :)
For Corp-wide parents weekend. It's new this year. Ian & Belle are going too,
and they are SO excited to see their sister. There will be extra fun stuff, plus a football game vs. Rice. Oh, and a men's soccer game...Belle is very excited.
4. I have ripe tomatoes.
Makes me happy.
5. I tried 4 new recipes last week.
Iz liked them all. Belle liked 3 out of 4...but in my defense, the 4th was chili and that
was just for Iz anyhow. And Ian liked 1. He is my bland boy. Evidently everything was
too peppery. ha.
6. This week I have 2 new things to try.
One is a variation of scalloped potatoes and ham...
and one is a different baked chicken dish. We shall see.
7. We are hosting a baby shower for my niece.
And my soon to be great nephew. :) Coming in November...can't wait!
Belle is in charge of decorations (thank you Pinterest). We are going to make a diaper cake:
Only instead of ducks...we are putting a super cute monkey at the top.
And no flowers.
And no floofy bow.
Bonus: For fun, search 'cake fails' on Pinterest.
Be prepared to see anatomical inappropriateness...but with cake.
And frosting. Lots of frosting.
8. Shelby did saber duty for a former Anaconda's wedding this weekend.
You know...when the bride and groom come out and go under the crossed sabers?
That was her. :)
They were also invited to the reception (and according to Shelby, you don't say no
to a second lieutenant). She reportedly drank 4 virgin pina coladas...
and since she is "honor bound to finish everything she starts"...approximately 27
glasses of water. You know, when over-zealous wait staff keep topping you off when
you're not looking?
We laughed SO hard when she told me that.
9. The wrong person went home on Project Runway last week.
Or at least her partner should have gone home along with her.
The wrong person also WON Project Runway last week.
Kini...you were robbed. Dude, next time stick up for yourself.
10. Heidi Swapp Project Life stuff is 40% off at Michael's this week.
Plus I think they have a 50% off one thing coupon for today?
Hello yarn. I am currently crocheting afghans #6 and #7. One is purple, and
for a good friend at church. And one is for me! yay :) Super pretty creams and tans.
