I'm so glad it's Friday!

Here's the cell phone pics from the past week...

Life with Russell often means strange animals being brought home to show the kids. This day it was a grouse, which was trying to hide in a fallen branch in the middle of the road not far from our house.
Russ slowed down, opened his car door, and scooped it up... for reasons that I shall never fully understand. 
After showing the family it was then let go and amazingly enough, it did not die of a heart attack.

 A family fave... I could live on their steak fries and honey mustard dipping sauce. 

We were there last weekend for a surprise birthday party for my cousin Linley. Fun times. 

 Miley in the car. 
Like most girls, she enjoys the feeling of the wind in her hair on a warm spring day. 

 At a baby shower for my friend, Ellie. Instead of games we decorated onsies for her coming baby and I made this one. I needed step-by-step instructions but loved how it turned out - and it was fun!
(And the shower was just in time too, her little girl came on Wednesday!)

Spring bulbs in my garden.

 One of our favorite dinners... BBQ drumsticks, baked potato and steamed broccoli. 
All three of my kids love the broccoli best - I'm doing something right!

Trying color on my lips for the first time in YEARS.
And okay, it's not really lipstick, it's tinted CoverGirl Natureluxe gloss balm.
They cost $6.49 at Target, something I wouldn't pay for lip balm (because I'm cheap), and yet I coughed over $11.00 to buy a 3-pack at Costco because they had a $3.00 off coupon - even though I couldn't choose the colors.
This is what I like to call "The Costco Effect". I'm a big sucker for it.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. The grouse story is hilarious.

  2. I love the onesie you made! Very cute! :)

  3. Cute onesie! :) Man, I don't think I could handle nothing on my lips... makes me feel naked. I like the Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers a lot... kind on a mix between lipstick and chapstick. :)

  4. Cute pic of you Jod, and I like the lip color ..Intsa-Friday is a fun way to recap. :D
