On A Monday And A Blissful Winner

So, I found the cutest jaw dropping, stop your heart kind of thing at Target the other day. Shocking, right? We all know that mini everything is cute. Fun size, if you will. However these jars just prove that giant things are cause for elation as well. I picked it up and petted it as I often do with cute items in Target. I glanced at the price, expecting to see like 21.99 or something. Um no….$3.84. Mason jar lovers everywhere~rejoice~ and run to Target to get some!

I still haven’t seemed to quite get my act together around here after our long sickly stretch. See anything wrong with this picture? It was taken at 11 am mind you.

A game that we apparently all enjoy adult, teenager, and toddler alike is the hide and seek in the pantry game. There is a whole lot of it goin’ on over here. Just sayin’.

He sits on the stool and waits. Helps himself to a snack and stays still until someone comes to boo him. I let him. He’s the fourth child, he can do that kinda thing. He can also run around with no pants and a crooked diaper put on by his sibling.

While I am on a role of exposing our less than finer moments and stellar wardrobe choices…. we have been doing lots of science experiments around here. It’s always safety first.

In another dedicated parent move, I played hooky from school with kids in tow. It’s only the first time this year, so don’t judge. There are just THOSE days. I have allowed myself two days per school year to bail and skip everything. No one minded a bit.

We all five loaded in the van. We were on day five of our real food challenge and I got the brilliant idea to check with Whole Foods. My hunch was right, their Margherita pizza played by our rules and I treated the kids and I to a lunch out. A M E N. So, we headed about thirty minutes away where there nearest Whole Foods is located, conveniently close to grandma.

We also stopped in our favorite new bakery.

Played with toys at Whole Foods.

Checked out some model homes and ended with a yummy lunch (this intensity can only be acquired after five days of withholding pizza from a teen)

We caught up on all our assignments by the end of the weekend.

A day much needed by all.

On to the exciting news of the hour, the W I N N E R of the fabulous bloom from BLISSFUL BLOOMS is


…you lucky lady!

You’ll have to send us a picture of you wearing it, so we can all see how cute you look!

Finally, today is the end of the ten days of real food challenge. In 2 hours and 54 minutes I can eat sugar, not that I am counting. I will be back tomorrow with our take on the whole process. No pun intended!

Good night!

    Ok, so now I want to go to Target… and a bakery… and ditch school! (I better not let my husband know, or he’ll block your blog from our computer – ha!)

    Hi! I’m a good friend of Sandy Asplund’s, I’m starting my own organizing business and currently in the process of building my website. Sandy told me yesterday, that you had posted these cool mason jars on your site, so I checked it out. Went to Target this morning, and the jars are $19.99. I don’t know how in the world you got them for $3.84, or whatever it was, but you should consider yourself lucky! It was probably an error on their part or some kind of glitch. I’m always looking for cool containers to organize with… these would have been really neat! I like your website and ideas. 🙂
