One More Week!




Can you believe we are still in school in NY....  Until the 24th!?!  I'm so looking forward to my kids being home.

Lots of fun things are going on today.  I made some teacher cards for the end of the school year.  I had to get those done.... you can see them on my cardmaking blog if you'd like.  I also repainted the poolhouse floor.  It may have been a big fat mistake painting it white, but it does look SO nice.  It is also really easy to paint.  Just dump the paint from the can, onto the concrete floor and roll.  It really only takes about 10 minutes.  I bought special paint with sand it so that it isn't slippery.  I also had to repaint part of one of the walls.  We had carpenter ants eating the wall, so dear husband replaced the wall and killed the ants.  They sure make a mess!  Isn't the white floor cute though?  I hand painted the mats for each room.

This is the girls' changing room....
And this is the boys' changing room...
And this is what is in the middle... lots of shelves for storage.

Also today....
My friend Janet, whom I have coffee with most mornings, made the most delicious strawberry jam and gave us a jar.  The boys were so excited and each had two pieces of bread with homemade jam on it after school today.  They told me to take it easy so they would have some for their lunches tomorrow.  Yummy!!!
{Thank you, Janet!!!}


More fun today....

Today I recieved my pretty prize I won a few weeks ago on Tatertots and Jello!  The prize was made by Boppy by Design!  She made them in whichever colors I liked, so I'm so excited to have them!  Check this out!  This is the belt I got.  It doesn't look good with the outfit I have on, so I just took a picture on the counter.  Cute!  The front has 4 fabric flowers and it ties in the back.  Really cute and I have the perfect skirt to wear with it.

This is a terrible picture that I took with my webcam, but you'll get the idea.  I won this adorable crocheted headband also from Boppy By Design!  Love it.  It might be a bit young for me, so my little niece, Ella, might get it.  She would be adorable in it!  {Maybe I should have smiled? Why is it so hard to take a picture of yourself??? }
Hope you had a great day too!

Thanks for reminding me I have Jelly in my purse. I dropped my purse on the floor and I thought the thud was my phone...ooops.
