A Mommy's Daybook

I saw this post idea on another blog (Don't Blink) and I loved it.  So I think I will try to do this once a week.


A Mommy's Day Book:

outside my window......

I see clouds again.  I have loved the temps this week but could use some time in the sun.  Not to mention a certain little boy wants to get out and play!

i am thinking......

About our trip to Tennessee we are planning.  Excited to explore somewhere we have never been.  Excited to spend a good amount of time with my family of five that does not involve any doctors or hospitals.  Can't help thinking my daughter is going to college in two years and I want to show/discover so many more things with her.

i am learning.....

How to use my Silhouette cutting machine FINALLY!!  Had it for a month and just used it for the first time yesterday.  I think I am good to go now.  Just had to get over the intimidation factor.  

i am wearing.....

Jeans!!  In June!  Almost never happens here.  I kinda like it!  

i am creating.....

a saying in my Silhouette software to cut in outdoor vinyl and put on the back of my newly painted glider on my front porch.  Matt and I finally decided on the saying "Together Is The Best Place To Be".  

i am reading....

This has been a problem area for me lately.  I have been participating in a couple of monthly book clubs but have not gotten into the selections.  My bookmark is currently in pg. 10 of The Glass Castle-A Memoir by Jeannette Walls.  I think I am going to hunt down some Nora Roberts. Craving a good romance.  These books clubs choose all these serious books and I think I am wanting fun books for summer!

i am hoping.....

to get both boys moved into their rooms before Shelby's birthday on the 4th.  The carpet will be installed on Monday.  

around the house.....

we still need to finish touching up the areas of tan paint in the basement.  We are going to try and get all the closet shelf system materials picked up this weekend so we can get that done in Jake's basement room and the closet at the bottom of the stairs.  So looking forward to this project being done!

one of my favorite things....

is my husbands new grill!!  I missed grilled food.  I did not realize how much until the new grill got fired up!  The burgers we had the other night were sooooo good!  So much better than burgers done on the Forman inside grill.  I also had him grill some chicken breast to use for multiple things the next few days.  I made a chicken salad sandwich mix with them last night.  I plan on making some wraps for lunch tomorrow. Mmmm....

a few plans for this weekend.....

The plan for this weekend is to complete some little projects in the basement and move all the stuff (paint, brushes, drills, ladders) out so the space is clear for the carpet guys on Monday morning.


a picture.....

Jadon "helping" Daddy with the dishes last weekend.  Matt and Jadon were hanging out together while Shelby, Jake, and I painted in the basement.  Matt decided to teach Jadon how to do dishes.

Cool idea! So you use the same question headings each time, and fill in your new answers? Great way to capture a moment in time!
