jumping in

{just jumping in like I'm not the worst blogger. ever.}

J has been out of school since last Wednesday for "Spring Intercession". Whatever that means.. LOL They're also out all this week. Needless to say, we're trying to stay pretty busy so we don't go crazy.

On the first day they were out, we just stayed in our jammies all day & chilled out. Then, on Thursday we went to my friend Miriam's house for our weekly "crafty" day. I've really enjoyed getting together with her every week & working on fun crafty goodness.

Here are a few of the goodies I've made:

Later that night, Rebecca & I went to a book signing for a couple of our favorite bloggers. {literally a couple. they're married} John & Sherry are the awesome couple behind the DIY blog Young House Love. {I totally stole this pic from Rebecca, btw}

Friday I felt pretty crappy, so it was another jammie/lay around day. Our weekend was fairly low-key as well. Though, J did have a basketball game Saturday afternoon. I love watching him play! He's very good at defense, and we're working on helping him be confident enough to actually shoot during the game. LOL Hopefully we're getting a basketball hoop for the house soon so we'll be able to practice more. He's kind of in the middle left of the picture with his {crazy pale} arms up in the air. 

We've got plans pretty much every day this week, which is nice. Yesterday we met some friends at Chick-fil-a for a lunch playdate. Between the four of us we had seven kids & boy was it loud! They had fun playing and of course the mommies enjoyed chatting. 

Today we went to J's friend Cole {and my friend Kaliska's} house. She was going to get her hair cut & I was going to watch the boys & the season 3 finale of Downton Abbey. Things were going well until the boys & I walked outside to get something out of our car... and I locked us out of their house. With my phone inside. We decided to just chill in our car until she got home. I was finally able to finish the finale and can I just say... O.M.G! No spoilers here, but seriously.... O.M.G!

Tomorrow J has a dentist appointment, then Thursday is crafty day again followed by basketball practice. We don't currently have any plans on Friday, so maybe we'll have another jammie day. We'll see. It will be nice when he goes back to school next week & we can get back to our schedule. 

Well, that turned out to be quite a novel. I guess that's what happens when I go so long between posts...
