Our week {InstaFriday...on a Saturday...again}

This is becoming a habit but better late than never...right?


This week I attended my monthly weigh-in and celebrated 1 year and 2 months of losing 20 pounds and keeping them OFF!!!

In spite of my hot steamy love affair with Nutella.


This came on the radio.
I was alone.
I rolled the windows down and sang at the top of my lungs.
I was shameless.


I sent Aidan (and my hubby) off to church camp for 3 days.

So hard watching that big bus pull away with my baby boy on it.


He lives for the oh so gross bliss of the annual "food fight".

The jist of it?

Throw nacho cheese, sausage gravy, pudding, baked beans, and flour at each other until it's oozing out of their nostrils.



Then clean off in the river.

Poor fish.

Here he is shakin' it for Jesus.


Knowing what a good time he has there makes it bearable to let him go.

Plus knowing I don't have to do it again for a whole year helps too.

Water Fun at Chevaliers July 1 2011

While the little one was away, the older two had fun of their own. Friends from our Homeschool tutorial hosted a "Water Fun" party at their farm for 7th-12th graders.

Maggie gets to be an honorary 7th grader since her friends are a grade higher than she is. I tell her that's just what she gets for being so mature and all.

Water Fun3 at Chevaliers July 1 2011

From the looks of it they had a great time just hanging and sliding with their friends.


I had a little fun myself in the form of dinner and shopping all. by. myself.


I got a 7" French Dip with pepperjack cheese from "Which Wich". 12 WW points if you are counting.

Then I hit New York and Company {my fav} with a leftover gift card from my birthday.


Our house is STILL under restoration...and will be for a while it seems. More complications found in our Master shower this week. Boo. Hiss.

Help me Jesus. This is beginning to wear on me.


The good news is that our kids bathroom (which had a wall destroyed from our AC unit leak in attic) now looks more like this instead of the picture above. It's not complete. They are still finishing up painting doors and cabinets in the vanity/sink area and I have to paint the mirror before it goes back up... but the shower room is complete at least.

For paint I went with Sherwin William's "Comfort Gray".

I was deciding between that and Restoration Hardware's "Silver Sage". Both are wonderful colors...but the CG just had a tad more depth to it. The Nester told me that hers reads a true blue/gray color.

Mine goes between blue/gray/green depending on the time of day and the type of light. I love that about it. Makes it more of a true neutral.
