Project 365-Week 9

I can't believe that March starts tomorrow!! Maybe soon we will be able to get some pictures of sidewalk chalk or kites, but for now here is what we have!


I woke up this morning with my eye totally swollen shut. Worse case of pink eye I have ever had! Wasn't able to lead worship this morning and had to cancel small group, so what's a girl to do? I cleaned Kyla's room, getting it ready to paint!

This is what it looked like clean. Can you find Kyla or other mystery people?

Monday (a few today)

Time to paint! She could not wait to start!! Kyla and I did all of the rolling (Ella helped a little too) and Kevin did all of the trim. This is the darker shade and the lighter is on the other walls. We're still waiting on the big girl bed, so I will post a before and after when it is all done.

This is one of my favorite roads. It is right around the corner from our house. It's the road I learned to drive on. The trees canopy the road and fresh snow or fall's colors are so beautiful here. This photo doesn't do it justice, but it is a special stretch of road to me.

Went out to dinner tonight with a gift card from Mom & Dad...thanks! Any guesses where we went? Nice not to cook after painting all day.


At the baby shower for Ella's Pre-K teacher we had each child decorate a fabric square. My talented and generous friend Berette, then put them all together in a quilt. Here is Mrs. C holding the finished project.

Kevin took Bryce to see the Notre Dame women's basketball team play tonight. Here they are beforehand getting ready with their light sticks!


Dropped of some meals to a friend recovering from surgery today and she gave each of the girls this. They had so much fun making it!

Here they are with the final product.


It was Bingo night at school tonight. We went and being a family of 6 we take a whole table. Everyone at our table won....except me! Oh well, it was a fun night.


This is my favorite store!! I went in to look at Spring things and had so much fun trying things on. Having lost so much weight I literally need a whole new wardrobe for each season. While it is fun to enjoy shopping and trying things on, it is daunting to think of replacing everything. So a few things here and there as I can. Maybe someday my wallet will support my desires! :)


Kyla getting ready to take the dog out. She just looked too cute to pass this up!

After baths the girls were being silly and posing for all kinds of pictures. I snapped this one and then saw what was in the background. Anyone know what is on the tv?

It is what Kevin, and consequently I, have been glued to this Olympics. It's curling. I still do not understand it, much to Kevin's chagrin. I am trying though. It is amazing to watch and in all honesty I wish the team would come to my house and teach me in the kitchen because I would have the cleanest floor ever!!

Congratulations Canada on a job well done!! But what will we watch now?

Have a super week!!


  1. I think I see the Boogie Man under Kyla's bed.

    I love that road,too, and often see deer or wild turkey's crossing it.

    How did you manage to get so many green M&M's?

    If in the mood, I can get pretty excited about a good curling match. However, LOVED watching the short track skating events this year. Oh, and watching the master of the half pipe, Shaun White!

  2. can't wait to see the finished bedroom! painting is so fun when it is over! ha!

    eating at Road House?

    love, love the quilt. she will treasure that forever!!!

    oh, your kids are getting so big!!!

    we have been glued to the olympics too, especially the short track speed skating!

  3. I love the paint color for the girls room... too cute!
    I would guess you are eating at Roadhouse... I wish the Roadhouse near us hadn't closed... I loved that place!
    Cool picture of the guys with the light sticks...

  4. I'm loving the color! Can't wait to see it all together!
    What a great view of your special street!
    The quilt turned out beautiful - I've seen Berette's work before and she does a wonderful job!

  5. Hope your girl enjoys here new purple room. Love the color.

  6. Can I just say that I'm impressed that you can see carpet in your girl's room?? We have trouble finding it in our house. Hehe... LOVE the street and quilt. I'm sure Ella's teacher will cherish it forever.

  7. Love the color of that room, I am a big fan of purple. Colton's steakhouse here has thos peanuts you can just toss on the floor, I feel so guilty...ha ha.

    Great pictures this week!


  8. I see y'all have a Rose Petal Cottage. Those things are so cute. Have you enjoyed having one? Would you recommend them?

    Colton's?? (peanut pic)

    No idea Homemade Gourmet had play clay. Interesting.

    Curling is beyond my comprehension, I think.
