Project Life: March 30-April 5

I know, I know, I'm late again! Sorry, yesterday was a super busy day for us, and I just didn't have time to get this post up.

Today, I went on a little shopping trip to Toads and Teacups and was able to get these great shoes for Madeline for only $9.99!  I love Keds for little girls, they wash really well, and last a long time.

You know that lawnmower we bought?  Well, it hasn't gotten used yet.  Things have just been too busy so far this week.  Hopefully by the time the weekend rolls around, Ike will be able to get a chance to use it on these yucky weeds that are taking over my backyard.

After months and months of dealing with my shaggy hair, I decided to go and get it cut finally.  I have been trying to grow it out, and didn't want to lose my length, but it sure needed a trim.  I took this not so great self-portrait of myself to show off my newly trimmed locks.  Also notice that I have finally made peace with my straitening iron.  I have been refusing to use it, and stuffed it in my bathroom drawer for the longest time, but after talking to my cousin/hair dresser, she convinced me to just do it.  So, I did.  Although it is a little more work, than just blow drying, It really makes my hair feel soft and look shiny.

We used to go out to dinner with my parents every Friday night, but due to finances and time, we had stopped doing it for a while.  Tonight, we decided to go out as a family again, and we couldn't have picked a better place.  I LOVE the Smok'n Pig. Yummy, Yummy BBQ.

Today, we decided to take Madeline to see the Easter bunny at Confetti and Lace, the party place.  Madeline wasn't really sure about the bunny, but she didn't cry.  She really just wanted to touch the bunny and grab the ears.  Sadly, this was the best picture I got.  She wasn't really in the smiling mood I guess.

Happy Easter!  This is a picture of our little family after church in front of the azaleas near Mom and Dad's driveway.  We have been taking Easter pictures in front of these bushes for years.  Madeline wasn't really smiling in this one, but she was super tired from having so much fun in the church nursery and was really needing a nap.

Today was a super boring day, and Ike was home sick, so I don't have a picture for today, so I am using one from Saturday.  Mom took Emma to Lake Park to an easter egg hunt, and she had a great time.  Check out those pigtails!  She has been requesting these lately, but I rarely give in, since she normally ask me to do it as we are walking out the door, and it takes more time than that.  Leave it to Grandy to spend the extra time to create these!


  1. Great photos for the week. This past fall I got a new haircut also and decided to flat-iron it for a new look. It takes forever and doesn't always come out the way I want it too. I think yours look good and a good photo too. I love pigtails for little girls. Have a good week.

  2. I love the Smok'n Pig! Nice pics, I like those shoes!

  3. Hey! Agree with you...Smokn Pig is so, so good! The Keds are darlin and your family picture was very nice!
