Saturday, snooze, snacks and shopping…

As of right now, we have 15 days of summer left (for those people in this who don’t hold full-time jobs), so that means since it was raining AND tax-free weekend we attacked the bulk of the school shopping on Saturday.  Somehow, I managed to guilt Hubby into coming (who would rather you play Beethoven’s 5th on a chalkboard with your nails than to go shopping).  Sadly, I didn’t really think about the lethal combination of Tax-free shopping+rainy Saturday+Son#2 who shares Daddo’s extreme dislike for all things shopping…..anyone have a lighter and an aerosol can???  I’ll spare you the details, but trust me on this….That.  Combination.  Will.  NOT.  Happen.  Again.  Ever.  The good news is, we are all aware of this now and on the same page.  The other good news is that after 2 thrift stores and Old Navy we completed the bulk of the shopping.  The OTHER good news is that over a dinner of pizza and Wings (I worked OT remember????) all was well.  

We (meaning the cat) also took advantage of the rainy day and snoozed….



We (meaning ME) also made some snacks….Lemon Puppy Chow via A Sweeter Thing….Oh.  My.  YUM!  I had no lemons (apparently someone ate them….) so I used lemon extract…it worked…



And to sum up the day with the BEST.  PURCHASE.  EVER.  Really.  If you knew this kid, you’d understand how perfect this shirt is for him…maybe you have one of your own….


OK, that’s all for now…but fear not…it was a busy weekend and there’s some seriousness on bullying, some manic cooking and bedazzling that occurred…I also uploaded Evernote and Skitch…to help me be more productive…kind of an oxymoron since they are sure to take plenty of my time to master!!  Either way, stay tuned!  Now I have to get in bed…Boot camp is calling me (my last week of early a.m. craziness, we’ll just move it to the cheer fields @ night!).  


Love me some Saturday mornings!

The one day a week that waking up at any specific time is optional.  Purely optional.  Lie in with Hubby.  Wake up and get the day going.  No plan.  It’s the one day a week I actually enjoy getting up while it’s still dark…..because I don’t HAVE to!

This morning was no different.  Hubby and I chatted while waking with no hurry to get ready for work.  Enjoyed coffee in the dark living room while the sun slowly rose gently lighting the room through the open shades.  70-ish degrees Fahrenheit, breezy, NO humidity.  Pure awesomeness.

Hubby did his deal this morning and I took a great walk while the kids were still sleeping.  Before I pay bills.  Before I go grocery shopping.  Before the day gets rockin’ and rollin’!

You can’t feel the breeze or smell the flowers, but hopefully you enjoy the pictures! (I did my best to name all the plants….always leaving room for error)

This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!  Psalm 118:24
