So I learned a big lesson over these last two weeks: I may want to spread out the stored posts instead of hitting the ground running. I lasted 8 days with all of the little projects I had going on around the house, and I didn’t want to get on a “this is what we did” streak again, so I refrained from posting. Doesn’t help either when school starts back up again and your mother-in-law comes for a visit – things just get a little crazy!
But over here in my world, I’ve been having a blast!
1. I started a new part time position on Jan 3. I LOVE it. Who knew work could be so fun! I’m hoping that something fantastic will come out of this, but if not, it’s something that I’m realizing I really want to do and hope to find along the way in my career. The management degree will help too!
2. With my mother-in-law in town, we’ve been shopping like crazy ladies! It’s been so nice to have someone who loves to shop as much as I do, and while I didn’t buy too much, I bought a few more tops to round out the wardrobe, and some new storage bins for our hall closet and my closet. I’ll show those later!
3. There is this little store on Pearl St in Boulder that I’m in love with… Bliss. As Scott said, he’s never seen so many birds in his life. This trip I held back and only picked up a cute little wine bottle label as a gift as well as two little bird ornaments that were on clearance. I did, however, find the inspiration for our future nursery (and no, that’s not any sort of announcement)… these two little fabric pictures that just scream nursery. The good news is that they can be customized to fit any sort of color scheme, and would work for a boy or a girl. The big picture was $200, and when I saw that price tag, I pulled out my little camera (the reason I keep it on me at all times!) and snapped some pictures to remind me of what they looked like so I could DIY them.
|Aren’t they just too cute?!|
4. For Christmas, my parents gave S Band of Brothers, the HBO show that came out in 2001 about “The narrative centers on the experiences of E Company (“Easy Company”) of the 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment assigned to the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army.” (thank you Wikipedia). It really struck home with me, because not only was my mom’s dad a paratrooper (he was between either WWII and Korea, or Korea and Vietnam), but because S’s grandfather was involved in WWII and fought for Poland. It was crazy to see what those men went through, and I think it gives a better understanding of what it was like. We DVR’d The Pacific so it’s next on our list of things to do. I highly recommend it (good news: it’s not too gory, and the language isn’t really that bad).
5. The canvas I ordered came in on Friday and looks amazing and finishes off the gallery art in the master bedroom. Check it out in this week’s collage of my 365 project.
