-I glued 250 wings on 250 tiny paper birds. In fact, I still haven’t finished gluing. I can’t wait to show you what I’m making, though.
-My husband and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary by reflecting on how much our lives have changed in those six years. All changes for the good, and we couldn’t be happier to be together, with a 4-year old son, who is more that any parent could ever ask for, and a daughter on the way.
-We primed and began painting the baby’s nursery. My husband won’t let me paint because I’m pregnant, so I just laid in the hallway and kept him company while the toiled away. That’s my kind of painting!
-We spent time building Lego structures, painting on Color Wonder paper, and just snuggling and laughing with our sweet Zack. We didn’t put a single toy away the entire weekend. Boy, do we have our work cut out for us today!
-My talented make-up artist neighbor, Ellie, showed me a very cool way to apply eyeliner. Under the eyelashes, instead of on top! Who knew? It makes your eyelashes look so full and natural. Perhaps I should ask her to do a video tutorial for us?
-We turned off the TV, disconnected from the Internet (as much as I know how to), and just lived our lives. It was so nice, and I think we’ll have to try to do that as often as we can.
What did you do this weekend?
P.S. Thank you to everyone who participated in the $5 Challenge! The turnout was amazing and the projects are incredible. The judges and I are still getting through them, and I hope to be able to announce the 5 finalists by the end of the week. Like all of us, the judges have busy lives, busy families, and busy jobs, so we may have to wait until the beginning on next week. Good things are worth the wait, right?
