Finishing up Week in the Life Pics, a Layout and JoAnn's Finds

Sunday I talked about my discovery of the new EK Success jumbo border punches. I would have thought we were going to  have to wait to see them in the store, but I soon discovered they had been sighted at JoAnn's. 

I headed over to JoAnn's after my dentist appointment yesterday. Which by the way, I was told at that appointment that I will need a root canal for the random pain I have been having, fun stuff. And I just thought I was going for my regular 6 month cleaning. I like my dentist a lot, but I didn't want to see him again until February.

Anyway, back to JoAnn's.  They had lots of the new jumbo punches at 30% off, so I picked my favorites to start with. I am sure I will see what others do and find some more favorites. I also saw the Tiny Attacher on clearance for $8 (normally $15), I have heard lots of people say they like it. I am not sure if it's much different than my stapler, but for the price I'll give it a shot. Plus it jumped in my cart.

Since the rest of the scrapbook section was 40% off I picked up a couple of other things as well.


I am taking Kelly Purkey's Sketch 2 class over at Studio Calico. This is my interpretation of Day 2 using the Studio Calico July kit. My August kit should be here tonight (according to the UPS website this morning). Yippee!


And to finish up my Week in the Life I have days 6 & 7, Friday and Saturday (July 30 & 31):

Friday

Humid, rainy, hot, sticky, just dropped Nicholas off at pre-school, off for the day's errands...


Grocery store, filling the cart with produce...


My little helper, we don't get a lot of one on one time, so this was fun....


After picking up Nicholas from school, off to Costco....


Stocked up at Costco, so hopefully Mike's next trip will be lighter on his knee...


Mike always takes the boys to Taco Bell after Costco, and Nicholas informed me I was expected to do the same....to prevent Jackson from napping on the way home we sang, "If Your Happy and You Know It" really loud all the way home....


After lunch boys are all napping....


Instead of enjoying quiet time with something relaxing, cleaning and reorganizing the pantry...


Then I made dinner, while my mom visited....



Random Thoughts from Friday:
  • Morning school rush
  • Sticky yucky weather
  • Groceries
  • Singing really, really loud
  • Easier day
  • Cooperative kiddos
  • Thankful for naps
  • Exhausted
  • Homemade pizza
  • Thoughtful parents
  • Spending time together

Saturday



A bunch of leftovers in a skillet makes a great breakfast with lots of weekday leftovers....


This is what Jackson can do in mere minutes....the toys have all been banished back to their rooms....


And he thinks it's funny....


Watching a movie together, Nicholas makes sure daddy has lots of pillows to make him comfortable....


Yes, this is how I found him napping a little while later....


She slept all day too...


Mike finally feeling up to doing something, experiments with his new microphone....


Piles of laundry to fold....



Reading and tucking Nicholas into bed....


Mike and I hold off dinner, so we can have a peaceful one after the kiddos are in bed....


Random Thoughts from Saturday:
  • Early morning train horns
  • Breakfast from leftovers
  • Down time and relaxing
  • Afternoon coffee
  • Thankful for naps
  • Laundry
  • Delicious food
  • Late night scrap inspiration embraced

This may not have been a typical week for us, but it is one I am glad I documented. It was a special week of sorts, Mike having surgery, me being home to take care of the boys, etc.

My week days are filled with work and I don’t experience as much of the routine day to day of our family’s life. So this was a week in our life, 2010. 

Now to find time to scrap it.

Great take on the sketch and such a cute LO. Love those EK Success punches (are they the new big ones?) Which Joann's do you go to? I usually go over to the one by the San Tan Mall but I am not always thrilled with their selection.
