This post is a bit of a mish-mash. I'm just trying to get caught up before blogging about our first mini-trip of the summer.
So, this was Saturday the 2nd. I had bought stroopwafles at Ross. The box says "warm it up on your cup".
I tried. It didn't work. The box is a liar.
Spencer had had a sleep over on Thursday night and then another one on Saturday night, so we left the bed up in the family room in between. Ginger was a fan.
My friend Marva posted this thing on Facebook about having an M on your palm. I checked. I have one.
This is what it's supposed to mean.
This is the decor I've had on the fireplace mantel in May and June. I need to get into gear and get some patriotic summer stuff up, but I will be sad to say bye-bye to the toucans.
I caught Michael taking a paper out of the recycle to read it. It's like he thinks he's my dad.
Spencer's friend came over around 3 on Saturday. The boys all went in the pool after dinner.
I took the opportunity to capture the gorgeous yellow flowers in our yard.
I went in the pool too, but only lasted 2 minutes.
Spencer and his friend building the computer my uncle gave him for his confirmation.
I made pancakes for breakfast on Sunday the 3rd. I poured this one, it cooked a bit, then I scraped all the rest of the batter on top. It was a bit of pancake inception.
Joni sent me this bracelet because I reached a certain level in Rodan+Fields. I thought the little dangly N would drive me crazy, but surprisingly it doesn't. I wore it on Monday the 4th.
I worked that day. It was the first day that my car was on fire when I left work.
The kids started swim lessons and swim team that night. Michael took Elliott to lessons. I took Spencer to team.
There are new swim team coaches this year.
I baked a bunch of cookies to take to Flagstaff on Tuesday the 5th.
Oatmeal with almonds, apricots, and orange peel. Oh, and white chocolate chips.
Chocolate chip. I let the dough rest for something insane like 48 hours before baking it.
I packed for Flagstaff that night. When we bought this canopy bed I never thought I would use it as a clothing rack. It's so handy though.
This is the bare minimum number of shoes for a four day trip.
And finally, my nails for Flagstaff.
Up next. Can you guess? Yes, it's the trip to Flagstaff.
