Summer Project

The Summer Project

I want to pretend like it's summer, so I have an idea.  Let's all post our favorite un-blogged (or already blogged) summer picture(s).  Then tell all your friends to do it too.

Question: If I give it a title with the name project in it, does that mean more of you will do it?  Do it!  It will be like it's summer in one tiny corner of the blogging world.

Here's my favorite un-blogged picture.
Swimsuits, popsicles and water bottles to cool off.

Some of my favorite post of the past are here and here (one of my favorite pictures).  But my most favorite summer post is here.

I feel better already.

Love Day

It started with this super mysterious Valentine!
No doubt inspired by the mystery flavored dum-dum
My favorite part is the heart made out of question marks

V-day breakfast

Manners Tea at Hillcrest

Scott always tries to find interesting flowers
These might be the best yet
The tops are super soft

It was a love-ly day!

Valentine For Hubs

Scott and I were both super hot in high school.
Not Really, but it's kind of funny.
(Look at that terrible mock-dress they made us wear for our Senior picture! It was bad then and it's bad now.)

Don't worry, as I've said before, he doesn't read my blog.
No Valentine spoiler here.
Is that rude? 
Do your husbands read your blogs?

Beautiful Disaster

Yesterday I was cleaning up the wreckage, the aftermath, the crime scene?, the party that is on our floor after Abe eats.   It looks like he's been in a food fight.  With himself.  Anyway, I was cleaning up his lunch.  Fine, his breakfast too.   Mmmmm, slimy banana chunks.  I just made you hungry didn't I?
He just watched me.  
Didn't offer to help or anything.

I Did This With Old Maps

I like maps, alot.  I had a pile of vintage old maps from my grandpa and decided he probably wanted me to cut them up and turn them into something else.  So I did.  My sister Erin and I made some collages with a little Mod Podge (first time user!), a big canvas and a lot of love. She posted about it here.

I used the blue oceans in varying shades for my back ground and I made an "M" at the bottom out of greens.  I wanted the color change to be subtle.

It was almost a full day of cutting, mod-podging and looking after the babies. I'm super happy with the results. 

Big art for my wall for $37!!  Wahoo!
(I might be a nerd for saying wahoo. Like me anyway.)
