mish mash

Have you ever taken pictures of your kids that you wanted to upload to your blog, but the background was so messy that you were ashamed to show them to other people? No? Well, that happens to me all the time. It is really not my fault. These kids are messy little people. I pick up toys off the floor every day. I vacuum at least 3 times per week. Yet somehow, it always looks like a tornado has just blown through here.

I attempted to make some pumpkin oatmeal cookies a few days ago. I have no idea what went wrong, but those cookie were hard as rocks. They were uneatable. I made them while I was talking on the phone with Eva, so I may have been a little distracted. Did I accidentally replace the flour with cement mix?

I had a FREE Chipotle burrito yesterday. Are you jealous? I know you are. A new Chipotle restrauant had their grand opening, and burritos were 100% off. AWESOME!

I am officially done painting the living room/hallway. Holy guacamole! It took me weeks to finish a simple painting project. But it is done - Finally! I don't plan on picking up another paintbrush for a least 23 years.

I have been feeling all nostalgic lately. I am mulling over the idea of writing more about my past. My former life was much more interesting than my current life (which is definitely a good thing).

Have a fabulous weekend!

Never heard of Chipotle, I hate painting too, and YES! My backgrounds often make me not post photos. LOL.

I def have pics like that... I don't actually like Chipotle (just tastes odd) so no jealousy here.. glad you enjoyed it though! And congrats on finishing the painting job!

I love it when you do posts about your past. :)

And yes, I know what you mean about the pics. Actually I mostly just take pics if it's clean to begin with.

d) i feel the same way - now that the basement is finally finished i don't want to even think about paint! or brushes. or touch up.

e) must be in the air? i can't stop talking about the good ole days of college - life was so much "easier" then!

happy weekend friend :)
