Looky, Looky

.......What Maisy got this week.
(Don't you love how I talk about myself in the third person?)

Through all the good and bad that took place this past week I was able to do a bit of shopping.
Hey, I had to get Haley's birthday present...Right??

This is one of the things I purchased.
I would show ya the other purchase but it's just a serving plate.
No biggy.

It's actually double sided but I will do that when I have a party.
For now, as it sits in my kitchen, it is single sided.
Have you ever noticed how I just live recklessly like that. I am a complete rebel.



After this week this is what I need to remind myself constantly.



Oh, oh, oh, oh how I just love this part of the chalkboard stand.
*sigh*


I call this photo "Back to Back"
To be honest with you....I didn't even think about naming this photo until I was sitting here doing my post.
My goodness I impress myself.
Shocking how that just came so easily to me..."Back to Back"

Now that I am ready to start a new week I am full of energy.
We made it through the sleepover and now I'm on to help my 17 year old son, Asher, get ready to go to Isreal for 3 weeks.

So, just another busy week.
Do any of you have anything happening this week?
If so...please share. Would love to hear all about it.

HAPPY MONDAY!!!!

What a great find, It looks perfect there!
So how DID the sleep over go?? How fun for Bradley! Did you wake up at 3am and hope he was fine? I don't do that so much anymore now that mine are BIG. I am sooo glad Holly is not very excited about driving! That is what will stress me out...her gone with the car- Ugh! So what will Asher be doing in Israel??

Well you know how much we have a fetish for chalkboards! LOVE it!! And love your attitude for this week..i hope it's a great one for ya ;)

Just normal stuff going on here this week--have to take my oldest to running for Cross Country/Track Tues/Thurs, both kids go to the dentist on Wed.

Somehow the term "lazy summer" does not apply in this household, as i'm sure is the case in all of ours that have children!!
