On Thursday I forced myself to do my weekly cleaning because I wasn't going to get a chance this weekend. After we had a relief society meeting on house cleaning I have been cleaning my house much more detailed every week. It's pretty exhausting and it takes about 3 hours and my house is small (and we are pretty clean already). I'm hoping that with time I will get faster and my house will be cleaner so it won't take as long. It's little things that nobody but myself would probably ever notice. I don't even think Scott can tell the difference. Oh well I know it's cleaner, right?
On Friday I took Corbin to the Summerwind chicks program. At the Summerwind Elementary they have the soon to be Kindergarteners come 3 or 4 times and warm them up to Kindergarten. I didn't cry but I wanted to cry so many times. I just can't believe Corbin is going to be in Kindergarten. I'm not ready! He was so dang cute though. They did PE and music and it was fun to see him do the activities. I don't want to let him go but I'm very excited for him to go the school at the same time. School is fun. I liked school and I hope he will too. He had a great time. I'm glad they have this program because Corbin definitely needs a warm up session with me there so it was perfect.
That night Scott and I watched God's Army II. So random. Scott said he's always wanted to watch it and he got it from the library so we watched it. It was pretty intense and edgy considering it's a movie about missionaries. I'm not sure what I think about the movie but it was nice to watch while I worked on a little project for a friend.
On Saturday I went thrift store shopping with my sister in law Anna. We had fun. I found a few decorations and some super cute dishes. I really love thrift stores. It's so fun when you find something great amongst the rubble. I spent the rest of the day making cupcakes and helping my friend get ready for her husband's 40th birthday party. Scott and I got a babysitter and went to the party. The food was so yummy and I won the trivia game about Jared. Score!
I'm trying extra hard to stay within our grocery budget. I think I went over every month last year. I am reading the book The Cheapest Family in America and they are hard core! Anyway Scott and I are trying to pay off our second mortgage and medical bills so I need to buckle down. I made powered egg omelets and they were disgusting. They tasted like I was staying in budget, so pretty good! We eat eggs every day. I can hardly stand the thought of not having eggs. Just 5 more days baby. I need to plan better to have enough money for the end of the month for eggs, and milk. Or I could be like the family in the book and they only go grocery shopping once a month. Can you believe it? It takes them 5 hours. They must have the biggest freezer in the whole world.For a family of 7 they only spend $350 a month. Told you they were hard core.
I've been on the hunt this week for fabric. I think I want to re-do my kitchen drapes. I want to make a few changes in the kitchen and front room now. I like the Lowes commercial that says never stop improving. That's all!
|Corbin took this picture. He's cutting her head off a bit but pretty good.|
|Gabby wanted to wear all of her Nana hair things. When Corbin saw her he said to her "you look like wonderful." And to me he said, "she's so beautiful." Funny.|
|Gabby's been a little naughty lately. Yesterday she got into our big bag of chocolate chips and spilled them everywhere. Piper was more than happy to help clean up. Yum.|
|Piper has been very cute and fun this week. She's also taken more initiate with walking and has walked little stretches several times this week.|
|Corbin and Gabby ate their science project. I've never seen them eat so much celery. Food coloring, it's not healthy but it's pretty effective.|
|Science experiment. If you can't tell those are our volcanoes waiting to erupt in the bathtub.|
|Look at my cute dishes. They are in perfect condition. I got them for 14 dollars total.|
