Happy Tuesday! How was your Memorial Day weekend? It also happens to be our wedding anniversary weekend so Mike and I got to spend eight hours away from our children. We actually couldn’t even remember the last time we did that. Originally, our oldest was going to go with us as she got married with us that day six years ago, but at the last minute decided she wanted to stay home with our sitter/adopted family member, Hailey. We went to a lake town we love up in Wisconsin and got a text about two hours in to our day from Hailey and Annie saying “take your time, go out to dinner and Happy Anniversary!”
We went out to a really nice dinner, got some ice cream, then took a long walk. It was simply heaven. We laughed, cried and talked about upcoming life projects and changes.
Thank you to those two angels in disguise for giving us the gift of time alone to recharge our relationship. They will never ever know how grateful we are for that day.
On to the latest installment of What Can I Mess Up Now?
Last summer, I found all these cool summer “to-do list” artwork pieces on Pinterest and thought how awesome it would be to make one for our home.
I even had the perfect piece to create one with.
But do you think I did it?
Guess I was too busy enjoying summer to make a summer to do list.
So I started seeing them pop up on Pinterest again this spring and was inspired yet again.
Because I had all the ingredients in my house to make one and really, it wouldn’t take me much time at all to create.
So every project has a starting point or a possible suspect.
In my case, the suspect in question was this bad boy:
Twigs in baskets.
Here is what I did:
No. Thank. You.
regular classroom chalk?
sidewalk chalk from the garage?
homemade chalk from a recipe on a blog?
Cost to make?
This could be fun for any time of year too.
