Busy weekend…. and Monday’s My Pick!


{Ruari (22 weeks) and I}

This weekend was a busy one… again! Mike and I have been organizing and cleaning our house like crazy. I swear… it seems impossible to keep our home clean. My sis came over to help by holding the babe while Mike and I ran around the house.


{Nicole and Ruari}

For whatever reason Ruari had decided that naps are for squares and she skipped her first 2 naps Saturday… She was awake for eight hours straight! It was insane. She finally passed out on my sis.


{Finally fell asleep}

We have discovered we have an ant issue…. They are all over our bird feeder and are even in our house! We can’t seem to get rid of them.


{Mmmmmm.. sugar.}


{Bob the ant and his wife Sue the ant}

Soooo, I decided that washing my curtains in the washing machine would be a great idea… nope…


{Shrink}

Turns out they are dry-cleaning only… They shrunk to half their size! So… since we are trying to save money we had to make our own temporary curtains. It was free! 😉 We now have a Seattle Mariners blanket in our window. Ugh. I hate it!

After cleaning and ruining our curtains we headed over to a friends house for the evening.


{Nicole and me.}

It’s so hard to a real picture of Mike…


{Mike hates getting his photo taken}

I have a silly family.

Awwww… they love eachother.

Monday’s My Pick:

Isn’t this the cutest pillow?! It has little hand embroidered ants and bees on it. So freakin’ cute! I wish I was that good at embroidery. 🙂 Check them out!
