A Busy But Good Week

It's been a busy but fun week.

I took this picture because my sister had just texted me a picture of her foot, in a sock, that I had sent her, with a big hole in it, and was asking if I could darn it for her...yeah right, I had better things to do...Sweetie and I were going on a fancy dinner date that night. Too much fun. I LOVE this dress. I got it at my favorite consignment boutique in town.

The next day, Dave and I were running errands and the van broke down. In the middle of the street. With my hazard lights on. With grumpy people honking and giving us dirty looks. I was mortified and Dave was just laughing at the whole thing and wavy like a crazy person at all the grumpy drivers. We had to wait like that for 1/2 an hour for the tow truck and it was FREEZING. Good times.

After bring dropped at the car place, we WALKED to the taco bell for some lunch. Did I mention it was FREEZING!? I got Dave and I churros to help ease the pain of our day. (did you know Taco Bell has churros?) They ARE NOT as good as Rubios, it was very sad.

Later that night, we went to Target. Dave loves to go off and do his own thing while I do my shopping. But then he came and found me, with THIS thing on top of his head. He just kept walking around with it on top of his head, what a goober.

The boys had their 'end of year' testing this week. I had to go help one day, it was really hard. It was during my nap time. Not okay. I'm really not cut out to be a home-schooling mom, good thing I'm almost done.

After the last day of testing, we took the kids to Dairy Queen. Grant was dying to go next door to the Thrift Store....but then he came back wearing this...I told him, "Dude, my dad has that shirt!" He is one funny guy, that Grant.

I made a totally rockin & yummy frittata for dinner one night. I love the FREE-TA-TA's. Clean out the fridge and wah-la, dinner! This one was: green onions, asparagus, spinach, mushrooms and some havarti. Scrumptious!

Dave was absently petting Winston's head, how cute is this doggie?

I didn't get any photos of my Calvin this week. He worked A LOT this week, so he was gone A LOT. But he has become a movie star...(helping advertise the upcoming youth retreat.)

Both boys worked a lot this week with Dad, so I had some free time to purge and clean their rooms. SO much easier to do when they aren't watching me throw things away and fold their undies.

I also cleaned their bathroom. Ugh. I always feel like I need a full on shower after I'm done. Boys, blech.

Happy Saturday everyone! I get to go on a walk this morning with a favorite friend and then she and I get to do some big grocery shopping done for a trip we are taking next week. Sweetie and I are going on a double date tonight with a fun couple of friends. All three of my guys are doing the Spartan Race tomorrow so I'll be going to church alone, but then helping with a baby shower in the afternoon. This next week we are going to the mountains with some friends. We are all SO excited!!!!
