Highs and Lows 11-15 edition

Ugh. Another week that I didn't post crap. I'll be better this week. I have a giveaway planned for tomorrow (if I'm not going to entice you with my witty repartee, I can at least bribe you with something).

So here we are again. Time for Highs and Lows. Pretty simple. Share the highs and lows of your week.

Life, Crafts and Whatever


  • Yes, this was my status last week. The two older girls got their report cards, and they were both great, so we took them to Cici's. Ava was such a snot. Screaming, refusing to be in the seat. Ugh. I don't know what happened to my super sweet girl? She's been throwing temper tantrums for the past couple of weeks. Although she had a really great day yesterday, so I'm thankful for those nice days. 

  • I'm super excited about this one. I've hated the front of our house for, forever. We bought those cheap brick thingies to put around our flowerbed, just to have something there. Well, my dad has a hook up at a paver company. He does work on their security cameras for free, and return, gets his choice of any of the left over pavers (sometimes it's a full pallet or two, not just a few pavers). I went over with him to pick out one I liked, he brought them to our house, and we (meaning him and my mom) got started on it on Saturday. We spent a couple of hours on Saturday and Sunday, leveling the ground. We'll start the mortar process next Sunday when he gets back in town. Of course, we will have to buy the mortar, but we're looking at under $100 when it's all finished. Not bad, considering the neighbors were quoted $1200 for the same thing.

  • I officially finished week 1 of Turbo Fire. Seriously, it's the BEST FREAKING workout I've ever done. I'm the type who can't do work out videos in the house, cause I get bored and it's too easy to skip ahead (or, ahem, turn it off). But this one keeps me motivated and pumped. Seriously, I heart Chalene Johnson (the instructor). She's so spunky, I want to put her in my pocket.

  • You know how on the side of Facebook, it'll show you old pics of yours? A pic from when Ava was in the NICU popped up, so I put it next to a current pic of hers. Amazing what a change 14 months can bring. 

  • My etsy sales are slowly picking up. I had a sadly neglected Etsy shop that I started before my blog, so they didn't match. So I shut that one down and started a new one.
  • Had a great lunch with my mom and hubby at Applebee's. Nice to just relax and have good conversation with two of my favorite people. 
So there ya go.

I could have written your Low! I say all the time that I can't believe I'm "one of those" parents!!! My cutie pie definitely has a temper.

Yay for great deals!!! That is really going to make a difference to your house.

Those pics are amazing. It's unbelievable how quickly they grow.

My daughter is 14 months too & we had the exact same experience last night when we went out for pizza. That is so embarrassing! I just want to stay home & NEVER eat out. At least we know it gets better...some day :)
