1 - This infectious song just got so much better. The guy on the right, rockin' out on the xylophone on wheels and the one on the left with the kazoo are my faves. That is, they're my favorites not counting Jimmy Fallon. I love watching Fallon enjoying himself, it makes me happy seeing him so happy. I hope this song and video make you smile the way it did for Travis and me.
2 - Remember when our house looked like this?
It looks like this now:
With some lovely landscaping that looks like this:
Okay, well you can't see the landscaping so well but believe me, it looks wonderful.
3 - When I was pregnant with Teresa I had no energy what-so-ever. Getting myself and three kids dressed and out of the house before 9am was a ginormous feat. And so now, three weeks post partum, I am thrilled to have the energy to actually do things.
Wednesday's weather was beautiful and while Teresa napped the rest of the family was outside. Lydia and I planted some flowers and it was a wonderful remedy for how I'd been feeling.
4 - Yesterday Travis did some stuff around the house that needed to be crossed off our to do list. The first "To Do" was to hang the light fixture over our kitchen sink.
The second thing was to install a spicket on the outside of our house. He'll hook up the plumbing once the mortar is all set and we'll finally have a hose outside! This means good things for water fun this long, hot summer.
5 - Last week I said I was getting some short bangs. My hair dresser / sister-in-law was hesitant and it took me a few days to figure out how to best style them but I think they turned out pretty well. I was hoping for something kinda hip but I may have only gotten nerdy but I still like them. Oh well.
6 - Now that fair season is upon us I feel like summer is really here. Our family went to a Turkey Festival in a local town. Travis and I kept to our diets and didn't eat anything (it was horrible!). I thought I was being a good mom and bought 6 tickets thinking my two eldest would get to each ride 3 rides. What an idiot I was! One ride each for $3 a pop. Lydia chose the carousel and Bennet the train. James and Teresa hung out in the stroller and then we left.
7 - Teresa Marie will be baptised this Sunday at our 9am Mass with a celebratory brunch to follow. I've got some breakfast casseroles to make, fruit salad to prep, and a DQ ice cream cake to buy.
Have a great weekend, everyone! Click on over to Conversion Diary for more Quick Takes!
