Just wanted to share with you a few things that are rumbling in my head and heart.
1. I dream of hosting a Craft Weeked like Meg, over at the blog Whatever (which by the way is one of my favorite blogs for crafty inspiration; you gotta go check out the pictures on her blog. Just click one of those 2 links above).
Actually, I do not like to cook or make beds; I like to create. . . so I think I would have an all day craft Saturday. I dream of a group of ladies making their own In This Home paintings
in the perfect color combo for their living room and using their own handwriting
and we would make a colorful bunting. . .all those cute crafts I have pinned onto my Crafts for Me to Make Pinterest Board (you can find the source for those birds at that pinterest link).
Would you want to come? A girls' day of paint and mod podge and fabric and color and laughing and creating?
2. It has been 4 months since I have had a Coke.
Sept 29th I stopped drinking my 2 liter a day (I know! Don't say a thing.)
The post over at Small Notebook titled How I Broke a 30 Year Caffeine and Soda Addiction got me thinking. I have had that post bookmarked for over a year and finally did it.
I will have to share more later, but you know, I really do not miss it. I can say that now that I am 4 months in, but those first 10 or so days, I thought there was no way.
3. Rob and I have a date tonight. I am counting down the hours.
My favorite dates are the ones at our house by ourselves where the kids are elsewhere, but those do not come around often. Date nights have become a necessity instead of a luxury, now that the kids are older and stay up just as late as we do now. We budget them in now and try to get a date night on the calendar every other week.
What do ya'll do for date night?
