Hello Monday

Our spring vacation is over. We had a great week and finished a lot of house/yard projects done.
I also had time to stock the shop with some new earrings.
 And new bracelets.
 Want to win a $20 credit to the shop (and some other fabulous prizes)? Head over to Imprintalish.

Ten on Ten {April 2013}

Ten on Ten: Take one photo, every hour, for ten hours on the tenth of the month. 

 I straightened my hair for the first time this year. I forgot how long it takes. 
We went over to a friend's house to get my make up done.
The girls got glossy lips. 
Waiting for our Mother's Day photo shoot to begin. 
Throwing rocks in the creek. 
I love that we can go almost anywhere and get free ice water for the girls. They love it too! 
Creating a flyer for an upcoming Spring Handmade Boutique. Very excited! 
I left a pepper alone on the counter for two minutes and this is what happened. My girls eat peppers like apples. 
Our new favorite book.
Watching The Mindy Project while I download today's photos. 
How was your tenth?

Washi Tape Birdhouse

A few weeks ago I saw this on Pinterest and was completely inspired. Best part of the project was I already had all the supplies.
Twenty minutes later I had an adorable birdhouse that looks lovely on my spring mantel.

Has Pinterest inspired you lately?

Here's a look at our week according to Instagram. I'm angeeoctobermorning if you'd like to follow along. 

I started this week with a cold. Ugh. No fun.
Every Tuesday, Emily hangs out with Great Grandma while Olivia is at gymnastics. They both adore each other and love their Tuesday mornings. 
I've started packing away our winter clothes and unpacking our spring clothes. Its not a fun task and always takes way to long. I'm hoping to finish it and my 40 bags in 40 days projects this weekend. 
Emily decided to spend the morning potty training her babies. 
I finally felt well enough to start walking my 40 miles in April. 3 down, only 37 more to go.

April Goals

I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend.  We're recovering from a weekend of celebrating.  Unfortunately, my recovery includes a cold.

I love April.  The weather warms, the flowers bloom and the birds make nests.  It's also the month that my sister and I were born. It is a month of new beginnings.

I have decided to begin each month with a three things I will work on during the month.  Based on these three goals, I will choose daily actions that will affect whether or not I complete my goals.
Olivia last April

Goals for April:

1. To walk/run 40 miles.

2. Maintain regular working hours.

3. Intentionally play with the girls 30 minutes a day.

Okay April, here we go.
