Lots of life going on, as usual.
I’m going to need a really good nap on Sunday and a couple of slower days next week! But, for now, let’s be happy it’s Friday and enjoy a Friday FIVE (family style.)
ONE. Clark is going to Winter Formal …
on Saturday. This is how he asked Rachel if she wanted to accompany him.
TWO. Trey showed his school spirit this week …
when he and Pete dressed up for BLUE Cheese day. It was salad dressing week??
THREE. Taft and I are doing the Valentine party …
In his class today.
We’re going to play Minute to Win it (Valentine style)
Each child will get a bag of candy and the obstacle course (pictured above.)
Here’s what they have to do, in 60 seconds or less:
1. Bite the ends off the Red Vine
2. Open the Pixy Stix and dump the powder into the circle
3. Use their Red Vine straw to blow the powder out of the circle
4. Open the Hershey’s Kiss with one hand and eat it
5. Arrange their M&Ms in the circles
6. Complete the “M&Ms Math” problem!
It’s a bit quirky, but I totally made it up and I think I’m a genius.
Here’s the PDF of my Candy Obstacle Course just in case you want to test your skills! We are also going to play a game of Cupid’s Arrow, that I saw on Darci’s blog.
FOUR. Our new kitchen table top …
is being delivered tomorrow. Our friend Steve Holdaway built this larger and more durable (not to mention more beautiful) top to mount to our current table base. Steve is a master craftsman; he also designed and built my scrapbook island in my studio!
This butcher block, solid wood top will extend the surface area of our table by 3 inches, which means my seven chairs and the seven people who sit in them will all fit around it in a much more comfortable way.
FIVE. I’m on the Where Women Create blog today!

My little upstairs office is coming together slow, but sure and I cannot even say the difference it has made for me to work in the midst of my family. I am LOVING it. There is a bit of a bird/nest theme in my decor–this was intentional and represents my delight in being back in the “nest” of my home—see the cool window hanging on the wall behind me? I’m looking for a cool “bird/nest” quote to put there (in vinyl lettering) and I’m also still waiting for my sofa and my hassock to arrive (early May?)
My friend and
awesome photographer Randi Brunt
