This week has just flown right by!
The huz came home on Sunday. He was in California- and whenever he is that far away he likes to highlight for home. His company only has a week to get him home, so he is guaranteed a lovely fat paycheck due his cross-country travels. I love those weeks. I get my husband home AND a lovely amount in the family account!
I haven’t had much internet time- so I thought I’d catch you up on my week.
Tuesday we celebrated the huz’s birthday. His birthday was May 8th, but he was on the road then- so we waited until he was home to have presents and cake and things. Although- I sent him a folder of very interesting pictures on his real birthday- as a little present. I won’t go into detail- but let’s just say it wouldn’t be a good thing if I ever run for office and they end up in a tabloid. Hah.
So the littles and I made him breakfast in bed- blueberry pancakes and bacon and eggs, coffee and juice. I took him out to an office supply store for a mini spending spree- hey we are soulmates and suckers for clean empty notebooks and snazzy pens. He also got a nice chunk of change *coughthreehundreddollarscough* to play poker. He loves poker. I made us a nice family dinner and then he got his requested cake: angel food cake with fresh whipped cream and sliced strawberries.
Wednesday night I worked.
I had a little henna job for a friend who is getting married this weekend.
I did this really pretty flower design on her feet, her back, and her left hand.
She wanted her hand simple- the design trails from her left hand onto his.
I finally solved my goddess doll baby dilemma!
I’ve been working on a babywearing AND breastfeeding Momma Goddess Doll… But I couldn’t find a way to make a baby that I liked. I’ve made a few babies for my dolls before, but I was never happy with the way they turned out. I was playing around with different ideas a few days ago, and at long last I’ve found a way to make one I REALLY love!
You KNOW you want one.
I’d be happy to make you one!
The huz took us out for ice cream today-
Everyone enjoyed themselves- and Cooper especially loved his very first ice cream cone!
In other news:
I have ducklings in my bathroom.
It is a cool learning experience for the littles.
They are so fuzzy and cute!
But it is very strange to sit in the bathroom for a pee and have four little fuzzy birds staring up at you.
