Miscellany Monday…on a Tuesday.

1. Monday was a holiday. I took full advantage, but now I am going to be up WAY too late getting ready for Tuesday.

2. If this were a painting on a wall in a museum, it would be titled SIX PEOPLE, ONE STARBUCKS, AND A DOG.

3. Happy Birthday Dear Mommy. She’s 65. I’m going to age well, it’s in my genes and totally unrelated, hopefully I will figure out how to take pictures with my phone in low lit restaurants soon.

4. I started my two oldest kids on the couch 2 5k program today. With swanky new running shoes purchased by the pretty lady above, we busted out week one, day one. I wasn’t sure my 12 year old would survive, but she proved me wrong and ran it out no problem. I love doing this with them. I can’t wait to let them experience the thrill of finishing their first 5k in about 2 months.

5. My friend gave me these cubbies. After a couple of cans of spray paint and some contact paper {which I already had both at home} I have a fabulous place for all of my little monster’s toys.

I love free things and free makeovers. AND I love Little People turned superheroes. You can count on the fact that I will be buying my child the Little People Wonder Woman Invisible Airplane for his second birthday. I don’t care if he’s a boy. He can have the plane and I will have Wonder Woman. It works.

6. Cutest. Frame. Ever.

7. I found two yards of adhesive ribbon for .97 cents. My candles got a 60 second makeover. Just in time for fall. Which I realize is kind of a ridiculous statement because this ribbon, in fact, has nothing to do with fall what so ever.

8. Tonight was an emotional night. We had to say goodbye to some very dear friends. She held my baby boy the whole first night after he was born in between feedings, so I could get some sleep. I sat with her while her third born came into this world. I held her in the hall when her fourth child almost left this world. We do holidays together, we do parks together, we do Panera together, we do middle of the night car rescues together, we’ve done many, many memories together. I am going to miss them. They are off to a new adventure in Texas and I know will have the time of their lives. BUT goodbyes suck. They suck bad. Because their adoption is not yet final and they can’t post pictures online, I can’t show you the fun ones we took tonight. Instead, I will show you this one Ashley took of one of her twins, which may be even be more fitting. We love you guys and send you off with happy and heartbroken hearts. Yeehaw.

9. School work is calling. I have a class full of four little lovelies arriving in just a few hours. Oy Vey.

    Yes that frame is the cutest frame ever!! LOVE it.
    I do a couple 5ks a year and have been thinking of having my two older kids try one with me. We have great run to feed the hungry 5k on Thanksgiving that I think would be fun for them.
    Enjoy your school week!
