If a big ass pile of balloon animals (and balloon swords and flowers) doesn't make you crack a smile, well then, that just sucks for you.
A couple of littles slept over this week and took over the house with balloons. Not only did the kids bring their own balloon kits, but the mr has a crap load of balloons himself that he inherited from my late brother-in- law Richard (he would be so happy to know that the mr uses these balloons to drive me crazy....thanks dude) And to top it off, we stopped over at the loft with the kids to grab a few things and there was as large bag of blown up party balloons that must have blown into our yard. Those also ended up in the car ans back at the house. Seriously, the house was flooded with balloons. It was kinda amazing.
This week has gone by like a blur. The mr finally got his wish and got himself a couple of fish. One is a gold fish which he named Lefty, and the other might be a goldfish that I named Dead -in- Two- Weeks (yes, I am an asshole). I am not exactly thrilled to have fish for a few reasons, mainly that I have been fish traumatized. Back in college the mr went through a fish faze. He would get a beta fish, name it, feed it, love it, then a week later the thing would jump form it's fish bowl and commit fish suicide. It happened 3 times. So yeah, fish don't do it for me, but the mr is happy so I deal. Plus these fish are goldfish and the tank has a cool lid that grows plants. We shall see.
There was some other stuff, like apartment stuff that happened this week, but mainly it was a quite week. We did finally tackle the kitchen pantry which I painted pink,and started putting up the shelves. Now i just need to pick a color tile for the floor and just get it finished already because once that happens the kitchen will basically be all done. And I will be so happy and I will take lots of picture to show you.
And it's Sunday. You got any plans? Doing anything spectacular? I am still not feeling 100% which I blame on the weather. Super cold and crazy warm... the ups and downs really screw with me. (but those warm days were really so nice) Winter just needs to dump some snow and let me be cozy for a bit. (not happening this week) But what can you do? For me, I hope to keep it slow today, maybe do some napping, reading, drinking of too much coffee. Just as long as I order the flooring, I should be all set.
Some of the internet browsing I did this week.
-It's 6 am, I am running at the gym, and I get a text from the mr. It's a link to this, Dyson 360 Eye. Why he was looking at vacuums at 6am, i could not tell you but what I can tell you is no cleaning robots. NO.
-The world after a snow storm always makes me so happy and peaceful. There's actually a scientific reason why the world gets quieter after it snows.
-The More You Swear, the More Honest You Are. Fuck yeah.
-I think I might try this for the mr this week. Roast Pasta Before Cooking it.
-I love mustard and am very interested in trying some on this list. THE MODERN PANTRY GUIDE TO THE WORLD'S BEST MUSTARDS
-Muffins are basically cupcakes that people eat fro breakfast, don't be fooled. Why Muffins Are a Trap.
-Walking In America Remains Dangerous. I would be lying if I said I was never afraid of getting hit.
-Bees Have Just Made the Endangered-Species List. It sucks that it has come to this, but it's good that there is awareness and protection now.

Have a lovely day!
