Take time to remember ...

Not everything in life is easy and sometimes you just need a reminder about what is important. I put this on my phone to remind me.
Even great marriages have terrible years, but don't give up. You will look back on this as a prelude to something richer and fuller than you can ever dream.

My week of fun

This week is the big festival in my city. I took the girls while my DH had to work last Saturday. We had fun checking out the chalk walk, eating at Junk Food Alley and doing some of the fun kiddie stuff they have set up.
Chalk walk art in progress-- amazing!
Bubble art
Lemon shake-up and elephant ear -- it's my weakness!
We also made a quick trip to the zoo. Here are my little monkeys just hanging around.

Working from home two days this week while the kitchen wall is repaired --  much better than the office!
The new doors and windows have been put in!
The drought has been putting a damper on my garden this year. Here's my first tomato!
At least someone is enjoying the 100* weather around here -- silly dog!

Insta-week recap

I took a few days off work to visit with my Dad and step-mom who were in town for A's 5th birthday. And since I usually only blog at work (shhh!) I haven't posted anything lately. Here's some snap shots of the past week.
Choosing paint colors for the kitchen
J and A playing with Aqua Sand (this stuff is seriously cool!)
J being a little mama and taking care of her baby
Craft time with the girls!
The view from my "office" (aka kitchen table) at home & yes that's plastic on my broken windows :(
My early birthday present from my BFF ... she's the best!
