An Epic Weekend

1

Okay, well maybe not epic but to us the fact that SCOTT FINISHED A BOAT LOAD OF PAPERS toward his courses and I FINISHED THAT KINDERGARTEN YEARBOOK we think it was epic!

One thing I love about a birthday party with lots of flowers is flower leftovers all around my house!

Okay, (again) well I'm not quite "I ordered 21 of them and am totally done."  But it's mostly done and I just have to do a photo shoot today for the two remaining pages called "Me and Mrs. Mulready"  But I can't tell you how good it feels to have that (almost) off my plate.

And Scott, he's a hard worker.  And this degree (pre PhD) was his hardest yet.  I'm proud.  But he promises not to go on to more courses after he graduates (again) in July. 

Anna came home with this on Friday... so modest... huge ceremony..."no big deal mommy"

It was mostly a rainy and freezing (like high of 47) freezing weekend.  And we needed it.  (to get all of that work done)

Yesterday was the prettiest day; my favorite kind 70 and sunny.  And we spent every minute outside making up for lost time.  The girls were on the swings, and in their own adventurous world; the kind where you watch them and you have no idea what they are playing.  Something about a fairy world... but I couldn't catch the rest.  And they didn't need us.  And that's okay too. 

Weekend goals... yeah... I'm that kind of mom

And today, off to my photoshoot and finishing up the yearbook.  The house is in desperate need of music blaring kind of clean.  This weekend it really took a beating.  Us working on our projects and Monday in and out a million times sure can make a mess.  I plan on going around with a big black garbage bag and my vacuum.  (don't tell the girls) and all will be right in the world again.  :)

  3. those flowers look so pretty scattered around your home!:) and before I forget...diggin that cool pink chair! is that where you blog??

    i'm that kind of mom too...weekend goals and checklists! once I get through this week of bridging and recitals, we need a big ol one for the summer!

    love the expression "music blaring" kind of clean! we are in need of one of those too. all that school stuff coming home at the end of the year is so overwhelming all I have time to do is focus on that and everything else gets ignored! and running around with a garbage bag when the girls aren't home is my favorite kind of cleaning don't ya know!:)

    congrats to scott!!!!
    and love those manicures! I would settle for just a summer pedicure!! next week for sure!!

    have a happy day tara
