our week by iPhone - week 47

so yeah, this post is a day late.  but sometimes a girl just can't do it all ya know?

i had four photo shoots this week guys... yayayay!  i am so happy to say that my photography stuff is keeping me busy but i am sad that i don't have an extra five hours in my day to do all the blogging/parker picture editing/laundry folding/sleeping that i also wanna do.  ok, maybe not so much on the laundry folding.  

anywho, another week has come & gone.  and this week?  will forever go down in history as the week my quilt project {check that, projects} turned into a monster.  it's a MONSTER!!  i may or may not have gone to the fabric store four times this week & i may or may not have ended up buying more fabrics from three separate online sites.  yeah, that may or may not have happened.  i'm telling you... it's a monster. 

ok, enough about that for now... here's our week!

monday.  oh wow... big surprise.  we started the week off with a trip to the fabric store.  look how excited parker is as he waits for me to get my stuff together.  it's almost like he knows where we're going.  that kid's a freakin' trooper i tell ya.  

those fabrics?  they're going into quilt one.  yup, we now have two quilts in the works.  quilt one & quilt two.  this is a whoooole other post my friends.

after a five & a half hour nap {not joking}, parker washed his hands of all that nonsense by shampooing up his head & creating masterpieces on the walls of the bath.  and then skyping his nana.  

tuesday.  clearly heather & i were pretty excited to be reunited at stroller strides... it had been a week since we'd seen each other after all.  how cute is her belly, anyway?  

oh my gosh i'm so lame.  laying out all my fabric colors made me way too happy.  at this point i think i have what i need to make the world's most perfect patchwork quilt when in reality this whole mess was just starting.  so naive.

tuesday night consisted of blasting some new downloads on the way to costco where p-ray shoveled samples into his mouth.  business as usual.

wednesday.  stroller strides with homies followed by... ugh, buying more fabric.  {stab, stab, stab}.  i have a sickness.

wednesday night consisted of a much overdue girl's night.  pedicures, mexican food, fro-yo.  that's the making of a perfect night, muh friends.

thursday.  i worked.  lunch time-errand running for me, video games & walks for p-ray.  he hung out with his girlfriend kaylee all day... he likes a girl who can make him laugh... what can i say?  

when we got home we found parker's new boots from had come & he was pretty excited about it.  until we realized they were girl boots... & thus returned them.  oops.  then wrestlemania ensued.

friday.  i multi-tasked by reading emails & planking at stroller strides while parker went for a ride on the playground toys... he likes them a little bit.  his crazy antics continued on for a pre-naptime wrestle-sesh & then after an hour nap he woke up happy & ready to get some dinner.  we hit up red robin for some coloring & bottomless steak fries.  win.

  11. I'm loving Parker's comb-over on Friday. Also, ever since you told me you were thinking about starting a quilt, I've been dying to know how it's going. I'm not brave enough yet. I'm thinking from your post that not being brave is a good thing when it comes to quilts.
