Weekend Simplicity

Weekend Simplicity:  What a week. After the stomach flu and minor surgery Raynes has made a full recovery and is back to his wild ways.

Mr. Robinson was out-of-town last night, and after 2 years Kenley has decided she was ready to spend the night out again.  That left me with my oldest and youngest (and the perfect opportunity for one on one time with Britton). She’s growing up so fast having moved up to riding in the front seat and 5th grade graduation just weeks away.  We watched Gravity, made popcorn, and ate starburst last night just the two of us. What a treat – no pun intended.  Weekend Simplicity in its purest form.

By now you’ve probably figured out I’m a super nerd so this ‘Napkin Folding Tutorial’ by Between Naps on the Porch should come as no surprise.  Seriously, it’s too cool not to share. There’s even a tutorial on folding a Christmas tree shaped napkin.  My life is now complete.

And speaking of girls I am in love with this pink playroom by Dear Lillie.



I’m reading The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin primarily because Britton came home with this adult fiction book from her school book fair (I know, why are they selling adult books in an elementary school book fair?).  Before she can read it I want to ensure it’s suitable for her.  I’m enjoying it so far and learning that I might just like historical fiction.

It’s been a while since I read any type of parenting book but I started a faith-based one on raising tween girls last night and I was highlighting passages left and right.  More on that later as it deserves a post in and of itself!

Lastly, if you are in the area my Mom will be at a book signing at The Bookshelf in Thomasville from 2:00 – 4:00 today.


Here’s to a simple weekend!
