Project 52 - Week 9

First, if you haven't entered my giveaway for the new VeggieTales DVD, go check it out now.  I'll wait here.  Just be sure to come back!  :)

{insert Jeopardy music here}

Okay, now that you are back, Happy March!  I can't believe it is March already!  February, even though it is the shortest month as far as number of days goes, usually drags on forever.  Not so this year.  Maybe because our winter hasn't really been much of a winter?  I don't know, but I'm so excited that spring is just over two weeks away!  I'm going to get some plants started indoors ... we are planting a butterfly garden this year complete with several varieties of milkweed for the Monarchs and parsley for the Swallowtails.  Plus lots of flowers so the butterflies stick around.  Oh, how I need some colorful things surrounding me!  Especially since winter apparently decided to wait until March to arrive!

Last week wasn't super exciting, but it wasn't a bad week either.  Except that Alex picked Tuesday to be sick and I had to miss Bible study.  He's okay, just had a slight fever which is now a cold.  I also got a project finished and spent some time with friends.  Three to be exact.  I was quite social last week.  :)

While Alex was home from school, he asked if he could play on my Kindle for a while.

I made a cover/stand for my Kindle Fire!  I started it on Monday at my friend, Laura's, house, but it didn't work out too well.  So I bought some more fabric and started over again on Wednesday.  It didn't turn our perfectly, but pretty good for a beginner!  Now Keira wants me to make one for her.

I finally ordered a new camera strap from Gina.  I wanted one for a long time but, for some reason, never bought one.  It arrived on Thursday and I love it!  It is even prettier in person!  Thanks, Gina!

We had a small milestone in our home last week also.  I bought Nick his first deodorant.  My boy is becoming a man!  {sniff sniff}  He says when he puts it on that he smells like "old dad," whatever that means.  :)

This is the face my husband makes when I take his picture.  Every.single.time.  But I barely have any recent photos of him, so I'll keep taking them.  Even if they all look like this.  :)

So that's just a sampling of our life last week.  Can't wait to see what you've been up to!

Linking with Gina and Tamar's Project 52.

LOL! Love the deodorant shot. I just bought my middle son his first too this weekend and my husband does the same thing with his face and pictures. I have to remind him to smile or look natural. He's getting better.
