Can you tell I've been going crazy this past week?

 This is my last project this week.  Although I should admit it's been sitting in my sewing box for a year or so. (Shhhhh... don't tell!)  I finally got up the courage and stippled it a few nights ago while I've been so lonely!  I'm hoping now that Matt's done, theprojects wont end, but hey, no guarantees!

Mouse pad!

This is pretty self explanatory, We needed it, so I did it.

Before, yucky and peeling...

After: Pretty Polka Dots!

Ironing Board Cover

I've been trying to stay sane while Matt works like crazy this week, and sometimes staying sane means ignoring your kids so you can make something!  So I did.  I bought this mini ironing board at the D.I. for 3 dollars, and then used fabric I already had to make it pretty again.  I just winged it, but I think it turned out pretty good.  Just don't look at my top stitching, my machine was being kinda weird!
Just so you all know I didn't ignore them all day, just part of it!
Eww gross, right?

Oh and just a note about the previous post, I've been getting a lot of questions about whether that photo was staged or not, and let me just say, yes, it was. (Obviously) But it was staged by me because of this photo. 

Jonas told me he was ready for church, he did it all by himself, and I thought it would make a funny picture if Gibson was in it too. So it wasn't all me.  We have a smart alec 3 year old to blame!

The Pink Strawberry Chocolate Milk Cake...

We have been so lonely this week with Matt working late every night, so last night Jonas requested that we bake a pink cake.  Because the fun parent isn't around, I'm trying to do special fun things with the kids this week.  Anyway, we baked it last night and frosted it this morning!  Can't wait to dig in!

Before and Afters: Bedroom

I've knew I took a before picture but it seemed to be lost, until this morning.  So, here it is.  Our room.

and I don't even have school to blame...

I have no excuses...  None.  Except Mockingjay.  But that only explains the last 4 days.  Anyway I guess I'll just get caught up and be done with it.

This month started with Jonas in swimming lessons, he did great.  Even the 2 days that he didn't go in the water, he was a very good boy watching from the sidelines.  Anyway, he started out super excited about it and then it kind of went down hill. But after a fun cheer, and promises of Slurpee's, he was back in the water!

Then we celebrated my birthday, the big 2-8.  Matt surprised me with a concert to Uncle Kracker and Blake Shelton.  So fun!  The best part was the kids staying at Grandma and Grandpa's and I got to sleep in til 9!!
We had one stir crazy day where we had to get out of the house, so we hit the park as soon as dad got home from work. 

After that we kind of went through a tired streak.  I'm not sure why...
(yes, he's in the shower...)
Anyway, yesterday we had a final hurrah to summer and hit up Voodoo beach at the Rio.  A real sand beach/pool. Gibson took a while to warm up to the feeling of sand between his toes, but after Daddy showed him how fun it was, we all really had a good time.
