Inspiration

November 17, 2010 at 9:48 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

I have been a bit of a slacker recently. Not in life just where the blog is concerned. I have been using my time during the kids naps to do other things. I have also been reading a lot of other blogs. Blogs about cooking, decorating, crafting and sewing. Sometimes I wish I was a bit more artistic. I am always reading these blogs where people take a 99 cent picture frame or box or something and turn it into this amazingly cute thing. In my experience when I spray paint something that was 99 cents it generally just looks like a great big mess. Here are a few of the blogs I have been reading recently.

After reading some of these I got inspired and decided that I needed a project yesterday. I hung some pictures in our mud room/office that I have been meaning to hang for a while. A simple project like hanging pictures can take forever with the kids. Leah decided to have a melt down while I was in the middle of the project and stood at the baby gate crying. She is becoming a very dramatic little girl some times. As soon as I picked her up she was laughing. Here are my before and after shots.

There isn’t a lot of new things going on with the kids. They aren’t walking yet..they took a few steps last week but haven’t at all this week. We started our gymboree class last week. They LOVED it. Jack was all over the place. He was not even a little shy. We go again this morning. I’m excited to see how they react today now that it isn’t new. They have been getting up really early this week. 4 am monday, 6 am Tuesday, 5 am Wednesday. This is making me one tired mommy. Jason and I leave friday for Vegas to celebrate his birthday and his brother and sister in-laws 5 year anniversary.  Hopefully we won’t be too tired to party it up. : ) My to do list today includes laundry and cleaning so my house isn’t a total mess when my mom comes to watch the kids.
