Being busy has a new meaning now that I am working. This is me on my first day of work. I went out on a ledge and wore my Lime Green glasses! They are fun...and a little quirky...kinda like me!
I leave the house before Jared gets on the bus and don't get home until after his homework is done. It's sad. I wish I could be a bigger part of his regular routine, but my schedule doesn't allow at the moment. You know what that means? I better make up for it on the weekend! I didn't do a great job last weekend, but this past weekend I think I did a great job! We spent Opening Day today as a family, went to church, went out to dinner and watched The Kid's Choice Awards while eating smores popcorn (Yes, it is as good as it sounds) and talking about who should win and what the "kids" think about so and so! Let's just say I learned about a little boys thoughts! It was precious! He is totally in love with iCarly i.e. Miranda Cosgrove.
She's cute, that's for sure! More kid news: All the girls "hate" Selena Gomez because she is dating Justin Bieber and "Bieber is their man." Those are quotes directly from a 10 year old little boy's mouth. I nearly peed my pants! Oh and apparently this doesn't start in 4th grade. It starts in 2nd. God, help me and all the mothers and fathers and little girls out there.
Aside from learning about the kid celebrity drama, we spent Sunday outside making bow and arrows, painting rocks, weeding, planting vegetables and flowers, mulching, running through sprinklers, and playing at the beach!
I love my boots. They are my working boots and they got dirty this weekend! Below are pictures of my gardens that I worked on. Remember that we live in a rental so there is only so much that can be done.
There are three tomato plants and two pepper plants so far. Herbs will be added shortly.
The beach was a blast too! I didn't take any photos because I was juggling Lira and busy watching and partaking in skim boarding with a boogie board! Jared got wet and was super stoked! We both got a little bit of sun and feel and look healthy! We ended the day with some Easter Egg Dying! It was a blast! Neighbors stopped by and we had a random, but super casual and sweet evening filled with laughter, wine and colorful eggs!
Happy Monday! May the balancing of work and pleasure prevail!
