I have a few odds & ends to share with y’all today.
1. These photos of tiny snails made my day. I mean…wow!
2. This is probably the most awesome pantry ever. It makes mine look very, very sad.
3. Do you ever want to fake a clean house? No, just me? A laundry basket and a little closet space will do wonders. Also, the bit about the pillows is my go-to. I just can’t handle it if our pillows are all floppy and out of place.
4. I talked about staying motivated as a hobbyist photographer earlier this week and then I totally fell off the wagon and missed two days of my photo-a-day project. That’s okay. I think I’ll just skip ‘em.
FIVE ON FRIDAY:
ONE. I’m on day 10 of my first gel manicure and so far, so good. I should be able to go a full two weeks no problem, maybe stretch it out to 20 days or so. They still look great, but my nails are growing and you can see the empty space below the polish.
TWO. Dallas is a green wonderland. Finally. We put Caroline in the stroller and walked to dinner tonight. It was beautiful. The thing about spring in Dallas is that you have to enjoy every minute because you just know you’re about to wake up to 85 degree mornings and 100 degrees days and then there’s no turning back. Live it up while you can!
THREE. We’re hunting Easter eggs on Saturday. I asked the bunny to come early and everything. This will allow us to only do church on Sunday and spend the rest of the day relaxing and not worrying about making it to egg hunts and brunch and pushing Caroline until she turns into a crazy person. Although that will probably still happen. Because she’s two.
FOUR. I bought a pair of tall heels a few weeks ago and I’ve worn them twice this week in an attempt to look taller and more put-together. I used to wear heels daily but now my feet are killing me. They’re just so dang used to their flats and sneakers. I blame motherhood. :)
FIVE. I’ve been trying to get to bed early lately so that it’s easier for me to get up early – you know, just get into a good sleeping routine. But I’ve been foiled by Andrew who is often still awake at 9:30 or even later. The other night he said, “Mom. I just don’t want to sleep. There’s so much other stuff to dooooooo.” And I wanted to cry because I totally get it. But I’m tired.
I hope your Easter weekend is blessed, and that you feel the strength of God’s love and grace for each and every one of us. Yes, even you.
Linking up for the first time. :)
