Last Week in Instagrams

November 20, 2011

Scott got his new job three months ago.  I still feel like we are in transition.  And then we got hit with a few more setbacks in this little road called real life and what I thought was the real new plan has changed again.  I swear, I do not remember life changes being so hard for me to deal with before.  And good changes!  We prayed and prayed for this kind of a change! ANYWAY, moving on. Here’s what we’ve been up to this week.
Visiting the fire station. She is so tiny on that truck!

Monday: Field trip to the firestation.  And we were all sick.  Scott home sick from work, me hopped up on cold medicine and armed with a lot of tissues for her very runny nose.  But we couldn’t miss the firestation.  She took her own hat and carried it around the whole time.

Made: one little Indian costume for one little baby for show and tell today. Creamie is stoked!

Tuesday morning: Made one little Indian costume for her babydoll for show and tell, done before 8:30am.  A miracle.

Why I have a great view from the roof. #puttingupchristmaslights

Wednesday (a busy day): started by climbing on an icy roof to put up my moms Christmas lights.  Six strands of them.

Battle wounds from this morning. She fell off a barstool and pulled it down on top of her. Goose egg and fat lip. Bummer.

Then Creamie fell off a barstool and got a huge bump on her head and a major bloody lip. Lovely.

Frozen yogurt date. She got to pick all the toppings. Except I picked the bobba. Yum.

So that called for a frozen yogurt date instead of a sandwich for lunch.  It has protein in it, right? and fruit? and dairy? As far as I am concerned it was a well curated healthy meal.

My new chair. I decided on this one over the rocking chair because it has a smaller footprint. And Scott will like it better. :)

And since the icecream made her feel so much better, on the way home we took a detour to my favorite thrift store.  The detour was a good idea.  I came home with lots of treasures but this was the score of the day.  I can’t wait to get this cleaned up and put it in my house.  Fiveteen bucks of love right there.

Not really proud of it, but this is most of what I have accomplished today. Also someone needs to invent an edgeless brownie pan. #peopleagainstcrustybrowniesunite

Thursday: It was a rough day around here… I ate a whole pan of brownies.  But not the crusts. I am an anti-crusty brownie advocate.  If someone would hurry up and invent an edgeless brownie pan that would be stupendous.  Sorry edge lovers, these all went in the trash.

Living room fort and a cape. Best day ever.

Friday: A little better, but still not totally awesome.  So we built another fort in the living room out of old sheets and watched movies and played in there all day.  Here she is wearing her cape, rainboots, indian feather headband from preschool and nothing else. Ha!

Headed to a baby shower for twin boys.

Saturday: Went to a baby shower for my friend who is finally pregnant, and with twins! Then to lunch with my sister, which is always awesome. (I bought the pattern for these from etsy shop winter peach).

Best of two seasons. And I'm turning this into pumpkin spice egg big icecream. Yummy.

Sunday: I just made Pumpkin Spice EggNog Ice Cream.  Recipe: Buy eggnog, mix with a little cream and pour into the ice cream freezer. Wow.  So so good.

This afternoon we took some more pictures of outfits Heidi has put together for me.  I’ll post some tomorrow.  We didn’t do very many because, surprisingly, changing clothes in the car at the park in 35 degree weather is not very fun.  I’ll have to figure out a new method I suppose…  I hope your week was lovely.

    I love your terrible week … in pictures no less. My weeks lately have been terrible, too, and your site makes me laugh. A hubby who was sick (near dead actually — thanks to docs who did not listen to me) back in June, and barely beginning to get back to normal when he had to have a knee replacement on Oct. 26, Then rehab which did not go too well, and then more of the same with complications. Some times are like that. But, through it I love to hear of your finds and your daughter and hubby and twin sis. Keep having fun!! Linda Mae..

    So sorry to hear of your week.

    I love brownie crusts, forts, good deals, handmade items and the sense of style a kid has. Don’t so much like split lips, knots on the head and illness.

    Oh! hugs in your general direction.

    that chair is gorge!! it’s been my dream to reupholster a chair for years but i just haven’t found the perfect chair (i’ll probably be more serious about it when we get a house). that one is beautiful.

    also, i’m dying over the trashed brownie edges. seriously, next time that happens, put them on a plate and drop them on my doorstep. that’s my absolute FAVORITE part. i would have eaten them all up for you. : )

    Oh my But your struggles are so charming in photographs! You strike a cord with me and the empty brownie pan;) I constantly struggle to accept change.. its a tall order.

    And I hope things are going a bit better this week!

    I learned from a friend (who does more baking than I do) that the crunchy/crusty edge-pieces of a pan of brownies can be eliminated simply by putting the pan of brownie mix inside a bigger pan and filling the outer pan with water. This perfectly workable solution, while not requiring anti-gravity or complicated apparatuses, lacks a certain je-ne-sais-quois.

      I am pretty sure you just changed my life! I am so trying it. And even though I’ve sworn off sugar till Christmas day…. well, I think this might really count as an emergency. I’ll let you know how it goes! SO SO AWESOME! THANKS!
