Catch up.. Not Ketchup

Been a little distracted this week… so today it’s catch up.

Here we go….

Monday K pretended to be a big sister.

As did Poochie. She didn’t like being a big sister so much.

On Monday, I also finished one of my favorite spring skirts for B. Whether or not she will wear it, who knows. But hey, sewing is my addiction- what can I say.

Later in the day, K got to hold a real baby girl.
This little sister loved it.

Aunt Britty and Allie Boone packed their bags and spent all of Monday with us… AB hung in the front yard listening to the geese on the lake.

And gave me that, “what you talkin’ bout Willis?” eye.
Whatever. Talk to my hand.

TUESDAY:My favorite baby boy came to see me with his mama/my best friend. Now a Georgian family, they have promised to continue to visit often. We will also be seeing them in July for the Taylor Swift concert.

And… look who has become mobile since I saw him last…

Tending to the preparations for Kenley’s vintage-inspired tea party birthday one week from today. Lawdy, now I know why we did it at Zoinks last year. This be a lot o’ work… But, hey- what else am I to do?

Love this collection of paper I bought at Michaels… it says vintage. I heard it.

Preparing the crafts for the girls….

And the details too….

It was so gorgeous today, with clear blue skies, low humidity, bright sunshine and a light wind.. that before I knew it we were driving to the local nursery in search of.. FLOWERS.

I know we will likely get another hard freeze- all the green thumbs tell me to wait until April to plant flowers in our region, but sometimes a girl just can’t help herself. 

As a little girl, I remember riding in the red wagon all over the very same nursery with me Dad. It’s shady, with the sound of water and fountains around every bend, what a great way to spend a Saturday morning with a cup of coffee, running clothes, and no make up.

Don’t know what these are called, but the pot on display had about three of them in the middle. Says the blooms are great for cutting and arrangements. Sold.

While a woman thinks flowers on a beautiful Saturday, a man thinks gonna wash my car!
And that he did.
With some help from the little person.

Big sister is spending the day and night, yes– her first GIRL sleepover, with her brownie troop. She is beyond excited. Mr. Robinson and I have a sitter coming for child #2 with a date night planned this evening.

Glad Sara Britton talked me into keeping this ol’ chair, and dragging it back from the curb where I had sadly left it for garbage pick up. It’s on deck for the next home maintenance project- a little spray paint and good as new.

This is how I wash the car.

And paint the toes.

The Groundhog came out and says, it’s not quite spring yet.

Why can’t her Mom have natural highlights like this?

Now I best go drag my tired fanny into my closet to find something to wear tonight….
