what a blast (from the past)!

Tonight my BFF crossed off something that was on her bucket list - and I got to be part of it. Our first "real" concert without parents was Rick Springfield at Alpine Valley. Man he was HOT. Turns out, he still is.

anyone else wearing lunch today?

So I was making lunches today and got strawberry juice on my shirt. I debated going upstairs to change and decided not, because changing my shirt would mean changing my pants and sweater too, and I only have brown pants clean and non-wrinkled, and don't feel like wearing brown shoes today. Besides, my manager spent a whole day wearing pants with baby barf on them last week  - AND NO ONE EVEN NOTICED.

I love working with other moms.

Maybe with a coat of paint....

I stopped at Goodwill to look for a cabinet or dresser I can turn into a TV stand. Now I know where all the discarded country peg shelves have gone. I think I still have one in the garage attic.

I'm saving that for later....

The past couple of weeks the kids have been crazy-busy, and I haven't been as strict about making them put their stuff away (as if I was ever strict about it). The dogs have noticed and started taking the leftover lunches out of the kids backpacks. But instead of their usual MO, they have been hiding things in the plants and baskets around the house. Last week I found three packages of goldfish crackers and an apple while I was cleaning up, today this - a package of croutons from the kitchen cupboard, and a stuffed animal from the middle daughter's bedroom.

why do we live here again?

Wisconsin. Where blankets are perfectly acceptable outerwear fashion for May, and any outdoor sporting event without snow is considered "nice".

How I Spent My Spring Break....

While everyone else we know went to Florida, we stayed here in Wisconsin watching it rain/sleet/hail/snow. At least we can check off one home improvement project.
