I took the girls out for lunch today to our local bakery/cafe as a spring break celebration. And of course we had to have cinnamon buns for dessert!

This rusty little tricycle was bought for $3 at a garage sale when Joelle was 2 years old. The girls (especially Malia) love it and refuse to let us get rid of it. Today it came out of hibernation for the first time this spring and it made me smile.

This is a good representation of how lazy our Saturday was today. It was a bit TOO lazy. I was thankful I had evening plans to get myself our and about for awhile after this kind of day!

Our romantic date night dinner en route to catch our 6:40pm movie...cause we're too old and tired to go to the after 9pm showing!

One day a week I actually get to dress up for work instead of dressing down. And I like it.

Finished another house clean for one of my brother-in-law's beautiful custom built homes! Phew...that's a lot of work!! Thankful that my hubby helps me when these side jobs come along.

Today was Rockstar day at school for Little Miss. I think she rocked it!

Tonight we debated between two different types of cookies to bake: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip or Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. After I beat Joelle in a best out of 3 rock/paper/scissors match, it was Oatmeal Chocolate Chip for the win!!

On top of watching Little House on the Prairie episodes regularly before bed, the girls now want me to read them a chapter every night out of the books! We'll see how long this will last...

Me and my lovelies had a spontaneous mother/daughter shopping trip to the city this afternoon. It was a lot of fun and we had a lot of success...including these fun tote/beach bags we spotted at the check out line at Old Navy!

I found this on the kitchen counter today and it made me smile.

Not exactly what I picture when I hear the word "spring"...but happy first day of spring anyway!

Waiting (impatiently) for my hairdresser to get back from holidays so I can get my bangs trimmed again. I'm not loving my naked forehead!

Terrible theatre lighting...but an awesome movie date with my bestie! And yes, I'm 35 and still using terms like "bestie."

So thankful to have this man next to me every night. It wasn't that long ago where work took him away for many, many nights. I like this way much better.

3.11.14

The spring time change does wonders for my spirit with the extra hour of evening daylight...but it always takes several days for my body to catch up from the lost hour of sleep. Tuesday night and I'm in bed before 9:30. Of course I'll read for a little bit, but probably not for long...

Cousins. Love. Being outside again...finally. Happy.

3.9.14

You can't tell from the picture, but that's NOT an icicle, but rather running water! Yes, that's right...things are starting to melt! After the coldest winter our personal history, we spent a glorious afternoon outside today with beautifully mild temperatures. Combined with the extra hour of daylight due to springing ahead with time change last night, it was an oh-so-happy day!

Chillin' with my girls with ice cream and American Idol.

There's not much sweeter than the sight of my wonderful body pillow waiting for me at the end of a long day.

Turns out school was indeed canceled today. Thanks to my sister though for having my kids for the day so I could still head in to work and take my Dad out for his birthday lunch. Mmmm....gotta love that gooey cheese on my pizza!

This. 
It prevented me from an evening outing at a friend's place, and from the sounds of things, it may also keep me from heading to work tomorrow and having lunch with my Dad.

Someone has been busy adding to my grocery list...

My handiwork orders have been really slow lately, so I've been spending a lot of time looking into new projects to add to my repertoire. This cute stuffed owl is one of my new favorites!

3.2.14

It's fitting that I was wearing my jailbird-like sweater this evening, since I seem to once again be imprisoned by back issues. I think it may be the result of doing a little Just Dance on the Wii last night with friends. Just goes to show how depressingly restricted I really am. Here's hoping this recovery is quicker than the last time...

Malia was so excited to show me her Lite Brite creation today. This girl is all about loving her family these days!
