Insta Friday

Here we are again.

What a week.

life rearranged

I'm always looking for yummy, easy dinner recipes.
And this week I found a new one!
Not kidding.
I whipped up a little shirt for my nephew, Vincent,
who is turning one in February! One. Where did that year go?!
We ventured out to the museum this week.
As we were walking in Abby promised me she would not climb on any dinosaurs.
Ok. Good. Let's stay off the dinosaurs you little crazy.

As we were walking out AJ said his favorite part was eating lunch there, and
Abby said her favorite part of riding the elevator.
Really children?!
We could do those things at Ikea, and I just paid $65 for a membership to the museum.
Sopaipillas at The Rio.
I made homemade foaming soap this week!
So easy. So cheap.
I just peeled off the sticker on a Bath & Body Works foaming soap container...
put one tablespoon of liquid hand soap in the container...
& filled it the rest of the way up with water, leaving a little space at the top for the foaming action.

One tablespoon of liquid soap! & they charge $5.50 per bottle!
Girlfriend and I painted our nails...
But my nails didn't fair so well after I had the whole drive the van into the side of the garage...
then buff the paint from the house off the van situation.
Apparently I don't need to gun it up an icy driveway to drive the van into the side of house...
just a little depth perception problem does the trick.
So if you're a neighbor and were wondering why I was washing the van in freeze your butt off you know.
It was a great day.
Girlfriend's party preparations have begun!
AJ requested homemade lasagna for the dinner the other night...
this is what he got:
I resigned.
I am no longer a teacher taking one year off.
I am officially a stay-at-home mama.
I am officially not a teacher.
The paperwork has been submitted.
In celebration I made cake batter rice krispie treats.
We are on our third power cord.
At $85 a pop, that is $255 in power cords.
Seriously children?!
What do you do to these things?!
I'm going to guard this one with my life.
We got a very basic elliptical off craig's list for $90.
It is kicking my butt.
Brody is still as happy as can be.

And that's enough excitement for one week.
At least for me.

Congratulations on becoming a stay at home mother! :)

Also, I totally understand the whole powercord thing, they are ridiculously expensive, although, in my house, it's not children who destroy them, it's my 65 year old FATHER, who shuts them in doors and drawers and other awkward places! :/

Hey Chance! I have to tell you I already made the rice krispie treat bars. Yum! I'm also very excited for your new job status! Even though I agonized about it, staying at home has been a blast! Can't wait to see you soon!
