OK, I know I keep saying things are crazy around here, but this week tops them all.
I must admit I'm VERY glad it's drawing to an end!


Mommy's Idea

**I'm sharing pics from my niece's baby shower within this post. Because I can.**

*Elayna with one of the Owl decorations from the shower*

I'm on Pinterest now. Lord help us all. Another online time-suck is JUST what I needed, and I was hooked immediately.

*Heather with the tie blanket the girls & I made for her*

My baby girl, Elayna, will be eleven years old on Monday. *sigh* We're doing some birthday celebrating this weekend.
--Speaking of Elayna, THANK YOU for the tips on getting her up & out in the mornings. They are helping already. I may just survive mornings after all!--

*Shelbie, Heather, Elayna*

Shelbie is looking for a job. A part-time, after school job of course. Girlfriend wants some shopping money!

*My mama & me*

Elayna got a spot in her school's after-school care program this week. HUGE blessing for me and it came at the perfect time. Between me and my son Tim, we had juggled schedules and always managed to be there for her after-school, but it was tough. I couldn't have done it without him. The opening in the after-school program was SUCH a relief!

*Me & my niece, Heather*

I LOVE Miranda Lambert, and Oh.Mah.GAWD. I love this song. Enjoy!

yes, pinterest is the great time sucker! I get sucked right in and before I know it, I've spent an hour or so just browsing!

I love the blanket. The bird theme is just so cute. And happy.

Pinterest, don't even get me started. I've gotten distracted twice while reading posts linked from Mrs. 4444 just this morning alone because they linked to Pinterest!

But it's awesome.

Happy Friday!

I never go to Pinterest. I have an account and never use it. hehe.

The blanket is cute! :)

Nezzy said...

I've stayed away from Pinterest 'cause I fear I'd be sucked in and never surface.

I can't spare any more time baby!!!

The shower looked fun and the blanket is simply adorable sweetie.

God bless and have a marvelous weekend!!! :o)

What a great blanket you guys made, so cute!

I'm on pinterest but hardly ever go on. Honestly I am a little scared that if I do I will really like it & then never get off.

Those tie blankies are so warm and snuggie - - - I have several.

You look every bit as young as your daughters and your niece!

In the beginning it will suck you in (Pinterest) but you will see in a few weeks that it will be your slice of happy each day. Glad the after school program worked out.
Love the pictures!

Isn't it funny how things sort of fall into place just when you are about to rip your hair out. I'm glad your girl got in!
