Another Olive Birthday Party

Earlier this week I came down with some virus. It was horrible. I hadn't been this sick in a long time. I even missed two days of work. So Scott wouldn't catch my germs and listen to me coughing all night he had been sleeping in the guest room. Meadow only had me to wake up in the morning. 

Meadow and I had breakfast while Scott slept.

I love sleeping in.

Olive's birthday party was today. Meadow picked out a cupcake picture to color for her. She was really excited to color the cherry red. Then was really excited to color the whole thing red. She kept saying, "Olive is going to love this!" She's also getting better at staying in the lines.

She does the same thing on an iPad coloring game.

I'm still not feeling great after being sick. Meadow and I read books in bed.

I came up with a meal list for the week. I was super proud of using so many items that we had laying around the kitchen.

Every week I take inventory on all of our food and Scott finds meals on what we have. He's pretty good at it.

Meadow ate some 'stachios while Brooke finished up the list with a few breakfast meals.

Then it was party time. Olive had a Rescue Bot party. Complete with pin the Olive or June face on the bot.

 I can't believe this will be our last birthday party with them at this house.


The usual Fiala family birthday friends were all in tow.

Can't believe this kid is six. Still remember when she was a tiny little thing and the Fialas claimed they were moving soon. Well, it only took this many more years for that to come true.

The kids got to make their own Bots.

Lydia gave Aaron a few pointers about how to drum.

Then the kids blew party favors into one another's faces.


She's pretty excited about being six.

I was pretty excited about eating a cupcake. Oh, hey, June.

After presents, everyone went home.



The Fiala's are letting us borrow some of their toys while they are off adventuring. 

The rest of the night was spent low key. I wasn't feeling well and Scott played his new favorite game, Madden '16.

Boo, to not feeling good. Heck ya, to Madden! Craigslist steals are the best.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the

Sushi Sunday Returns

Today I woke up before Scott and surprised him by making big pancakes. I was so excited, but I had to take a quick shower first. He didn't know I was making breakfast and woke up too late. He had to scarf it down before heading to work. I'm not going to complain that Scott had to work on a Sunday again. Yea it sucks, but I need to be more thankful that he has a job. It may not be the best he's had or the worst and the pay isn't phenomenal, but life isn't always fair. Instead of dwelling on the things I don't like I need to be more happy about the things in life that are great.  After he left I spent time on-and-off working on this puzzle. It's a lot easier to see the many colors when the suns out. I think I found about 3 more pieces.  Then I ordered more seeds online . Last year we figured we had enough, but then we realized we really want to grow kale and chard and popcorn. I know it's a little early to be getting excited abo

Mexico 2020 - Guanajuato

While planning our Mexico trip Scott discovered a city "nearby" that he said looked cool. He originally told me it was like an hour away.  I think I said a few hours away, but maybe. Except when we got our bus tickets it was actually 6 hours.  Sometimes you need to take a journey for a good adventure. Or something. We picked up this model bus for Theo at the bus station. Also he's claimed the Frida backpack.
