High Five for Friday!

I’m linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday!  It was an awesome week and I can’t wait to share it with you.  

5.  The Hubs and I went to the orchid show at the botanical gardens.  I bought this little beauty!

I can’t remember the name.  Something something Kitty.
4. I potted up all of my tomato starts.  They are now living on the kitchen window.  I plan to tempt fate and put them out in two weeks.  It will be a month early, but if they die I still have time to start new.
4 of 9.  Yes I’m one of those crazy gardeners.
3.  The Meister was a trooper this week.  He fell off his bike and busted his arm.  He rode the 2.5 miles back to the truck.  After we went to my work to have a doc look at it we found out it needed a stitch.  I felt like a bad mom for making him ride back to the truck, but we really didn’t have a choice. 
This is his tough face.
2.We dogsat over the weekend for my brother and sister in law.  Rowdy and Meister became quick buds.
1. I made seed mats for my garden.  I used this tutorial from Granny.  She rocks my garden world!
That’s it for me this week.  How was yours?

High Five For Friday!

It’s Friday again and I’m linking up with Lauren.  Her blog is pretty stinking cute and I love how she does the High Fives.  So here’s my list for the week.

5.This picture that The Meister drew.  It’s him dueling Snape.  My geek heart swelled with pride!

4.I had Monday off due to the Meister being sick, but I still enjoyed it.  We snuggled all day.  I heart him.

Max enjoyed the snugglage.
3.Diet Coke.  I love you.  We are breaking up, but you don’t know it yet.


2.This book was really really good.  You can buy it here.

1. Rainbow pancakes.  How can you not be happy looking at those?

Truthfully, I am more happy looking at him. 

Painted Headboard

I found this Ethan Allen head/foot board combo at Goodwill for 10 bucks.  It didn’t have the rails to go with it, but that was ok.  The hubs attached them to an existing frame we had laying around.  You have old bed frames laying around, right? 

He’s handy like that.
Usually I’m the furniture painter in the family.  This time though The Hubs felt like being in charge.  He felt that priming would be, and I quote, “stupid.”  You know that old saying “pick your battles.”  This was one of those times.   Ok, no primer.   
 This is two coats people.  Let this be a lesson.  I even have a rhyme to help you remember.  Prime every time or listen to me whine.  Catchy eh? Notice the drips?  Yeah, me too. The Hubs didn’t. 
All finished in her brand new big girl room.
I can’t totally throw Hubs under the bus here.  He did a pretty good job.  Not bad for 10 bucks and a quart of paint.   

Happy Birthday Miss Thang!

She’s the big 4 today!
She really liked her rainbow birthday pancakes!

High Five for Friday

Top 5 for the week!  

It was a long week and I came through some darkness.  I feel especially grateful for my family this week. I thought I’d join up with Lauren

I can’t figure out how to add the button, I’m new to this.  Bear with me!

5.  My parents.  That’s newborn Meister!  It’s an oldie, but the nicest picture I had of them.

4.  This dog.  He’s surveying his kingdom from the patio table.

3.  This girl.  I mean, what three year old sits like that?  Precious!
2.  This boy.   He was “getting” me.
1.  This Man.  He has shown me what love is.

yoga babies

They didn’t want to go to bed.  
They wanted to do yoga instead.  
I wish I could claim this behavior comes from me, but it’s totally from my mom.
