Favorite Preschool Project Yet
It’s been a week. Being out of town last weekend left me feeling like I had so much to catch up on over the following days. But we made it. It’s Friday! And we’re headed to the Mavs playoff game against the Spurs tonight and I’m just praying really hard that we can force a game 7 against the #1 seed.
During game 5 I looked and Brian and said, “Why do I love this game? It just stresses me out!” but I do, and I’ll keep watching and cheering.
1. I realized yesterday that Brian and I were engaged 10 years ago Wednesday. TEN years! That means our anniversary is coming up this fall. This post from Shauna Niequist on marriage as our love story is just awesome. “We’re living a love-story, not running a small business together.” Our minister recently did a marriage sermon series and he really stressed this as well.
2. “The powerful difference between organizing and decluttering”. I’ve read Tsh’s book, Organized Simplicity and loved it. It spurned a months-long decluttering project at our house. This article was a nice reminder that it’s an ongoing process.
3. Pretty sure I have to add these girl and boy sandwich stampers to my next BentoUSA order.
4. I recently found Robin Long’s Pilates blog, The Balanced Life, and I’m loving it. Her videos are short and easy to follow. She’s offering a summer Pilates series starting in May and I’m hoping to participate. Any other takers?? :)
FIVE ON FRIDAY
ONE. We’re all about the Frozen radio station on iTunes Radio right now. Andrew can name the movie for just about every Disney song ever written, I’m sure of it. We have music on all the time at the house and it’s nice to know Blurred Lines isn’t going to come up next. Ha!
TWO. I just picked up my flared legged jeans from the tailor. I think I may wear them to the basketball game tonight. I just don’t know if I’m young and trendy enough to pull them off though.
THREE. I’m ready to do some serious decorating in here. If only I had endless funds. Ha! My custom fabric ottomans from Ballard Design should be here in the next few weeks and I’ll finally be able to fill the giant hole between the couches in my living room. Next up is the empty living room wall. My vision is to fill it with new and old framed oil paintings, kind of like this:
My sister is willing to help which is awesome. She has quite the eye. I’m also planning to spend some time on my mudroom project this weekend. It’s coming right along! I’m excited just to be making some progress. House projects are time consuming and force us to be decisive which can be really hard. The hardest part for me is sourcing stuff. Where do I find pretty old oil paintings and eclectic frames? I think this should be a blog post on its own.
FOUR. I took one of those personality tests this week. I’m an ESTJ. I look the same test years and years ago and I was an ESTJ then too so I guess it’s pretty accurate. “Order, tradition and stability.” Yep, that kinda sounds like me. I find these things fascinating. But I look at the list of famous ESTJ’s and can’t help but think I should be doing more. I’m not really using my ability “to make even the most complex project look like a walk in the park.” Not much complex problem solving going on here these days.
FIVE. My StitchFix box just arrived! I’m off to try on clothes! (Seriously complex problems to solve! Ha!)
Happy happy weekend friends. I hope yours is warm and sunny and FUN!
