A Little For Them. A Little For Me.

Thursday, April 29, 2010

My sweet husband has been out of town on a shoot and you know the old saying, "when the cat is away the mice will play." That is exactly what we've been doing. I generally don't like staying alone, check that. I don't like it when my husband is gone. He's my best friend and I miss him. Plus it's hard to get as much done as I would like while he's away. So this time, we just had fun.

we made this tent for the back yard out of an old sheet

the boys loved it

Them: tent (hours of fun)
Me: pink flowers on tent

Them: dinner in the tent
Me: the view while laying in the tent (bright blue skies)

my flowers and herbs

Them: playing in the water
Me: caring for my mint and thyme (my first attempt at gardening)

we made a trip to garland road thrift

Them: new fun toys
Me: amazing fabric for three bucks and a bit of nostalgia via the toys

see that floral floor pillow?

this floral fabric will soon be covering one of our floor pillows

Them: dum dum suckers
Me: unloaded a ton of shoes for charity at Pure Dental

Them: gum (my youngest is almost 2 and just learned how to chew without swallowing it)
Me: quiet car rides without the paci or thumb sucking

Them: movie night
Me: bible study and a glass of wine with my girls

All in all I would say it has been a pretty fun and successful couple of days. Tonight, my prince charming returns! Ahhh...a good night's sleep. xo


  1. Sounds like lots of fun. Your boys are cute and your tent is too. My husband and I are really good friends too and when I went to Israel without him, we missed each other so much. It's good to keep busy when your spouse is away though, then you don't think about missing them so much. Movie night and a glass of wine sounds really nice.

  2. I can't sleep without my hubby lying next to me, so I totally get where you are coming from. Sounds like you had a great time with your boys though. Those moments are so precious, great that you could document it for prosperity and really nice to read about it.
    I'm about to start a very busy but lovely weekend here (its is Friday afternoon). I hope yours is lovely
