Hi! Happy Monday, and happy July! I can't believe tomorrow is already the 4th! Our past week was busy with appointments and house projects. The kids and I made unicorn slime on Monday. I don't think the recipe we used gave us the results we wanted but it has been fun to play with the past few days.
I got super behind in my magazine subscriptions this year, so this week I sat down and went through the ones that I had read and pinned anything that I had dog-eared to save. I now have lots of new recipes and makeup to try!
Last week, I mentioned that Ari was really digging the Kate DiCamillo beginner chapter book series called Mercy Watson. Any chance she gets, she grabs one of the books and reads to me. She is already on the third book, and although I shouldn't encourage bragging, Ari tells every single person she sees that she is reading "chapter books."
I wasn't in the mood to cook dinner one night, so we hit up Rudy's BBQ and then stopped by Bahama Bucks. Look at that concentration!
A trick shot? A Trip shot?
I haven't had a snowcone in a year, and I don't think I need to have one again in the near future. Too syrupy for my belly! Ari loves birthday cake flavor, and Trip got lemon-lime.
The week also included a few walks through our homeland, Target. You know, just a brother and sister helping each other try on fairy wings!
Neither of my kids feel a need to dress for the weather (or the season!) and can pretty much always be found in long jammies.
On Friday, the movie requested was Fantasia. If you need 2 hours to work on a project by yourself, turn this movie on! They were captivated by it!
Robert and my dad got to work on our front door.
After meeting up with friends at the pool, the kids scootered and biked up and down the sidewalk and driveway. We also had our annual check in from the pest control company. Gotta keep any potential critters away (unless they're cute like this kid!).
Jagger and I hung out in the shade and watched.
Saturday brought more errands and more reading- she is hooked!
I saw this magazine cover in line at Target, and I HAVE to try it! Doesn't it look delicious? I found the recipe online HERE!
We've had awesome weather lately, so we hit up our pool for an afternoon swim.
Sunday brought more chores, errands, and projects. The kids got out the 4th of July decorations and got to work in the yard while the dog took up his usual spot. Doesn't the door look nice? Robert and my dad did a great job, and I'm so thankful that they did that to save us $900!
Tomorrow, we are headed to our neighborhood parade, so we're going to decorate the kids' bikes today and bake some treats to take to our firefighters this afternoon. I'm popping in tomorrow to share a great pool/beach-ready workout with you for Tuesday Training. If I don't see you 'til later this week, I hope that you have a super safe and fun holiday tomorrow. See you soon!
