our week by iPhone - week 69

sometimes these posts are a lot of work but you know what?  i LOVE them.  i love going back through our week & remembering little smiles & moments that otherwise would be forgotten.  this week was fun.  it was routine, there were regular naps & there was even a little bit of sun.

here's what it looked like through iPhotos.

monday.  groggy little boys like small doses of sesame street in the morning to gear up for their big day at stroller strides playing in puddles & talking their mom into the good cereal at the grocery store.

later it was pulling my hair & checking out the porch swing cushion quality with dad at costco.

tuesday started with some running out in the sun at stroller strides & browsing the aisles for stuff we probably don't need at target.

the fun continued when i shot a session for one of my class of 2013 senior reps.  the light was amazing, she rocked the shoot & everyone went home happy.  see a few of my favorites on my photography facebook page here.

and tuesday night?  parker slept with funky arms & drool puddles.

wednesday started off pretty freaking awesome with a giggly little boy & an 18-week pregnancy check up.  there was also time spent at the playground {where septic covers are way more interesting than the toys}, rough housing with dad & lots of splashing in the bath tub.

thursday morning parker watched me get ready for work while perched on his little stool & i didn't wanna leave his cute little face.  but lunch alone out in the sun made working-life a little more bearable.

fun fact about me?  i'm a little neurotic about my day-planner.  as in, my planner is color coded, only certain kinds of pens are allowed to be used, absolutely NO scribbles or cross-outs allowed {think white-out tape} & the more highlighter the better.

driving home i was greeted by a lovely message on our neighborhood reader board {jealous your neighborhood doesn't have a reader board?  we're classy} that said, "WARNING: GAS IS BEING SIPHONED FROM CARS."  alrighty, have a nice day!

thursday night parker & i both spent over thirty minutes being entertained by a stool & then he slept with his bum up in the air.

friday.  what better way to cap off a great work out than with a big ol' cup of fro-yo?  there is no better way, actually.  and for the record, everyone should start their friday with a cup of fro-yo before lunch.

toy box update:  it continues to be parker's favorite place to play.  on, around & especially IN.  goofball.

friday night was supposed to be date night but when sam came home & immediately crashed on the couch i had my doubts.  nevertheless, he rallied & we filled our bellies with spicy thai food & cupcakes.

and then i stayed up late & blogged about it.

  1. Man. I want some fro yo so bad right now, and it is only 6:45am. I do have a long run on the schedule this morning, maybe after :). Looks like a pretty good week! And I love your planner...

  2. Oh my. I hope you have a garage to put your cars in. Seems like a good week!

  3. Yeah, serious planner envy over here ;) I'm loving the color coordination, stickies, markers...OH MY! :) Fun week :)

  4. I wish I lived closer, I'd have you take my senior's portraits! Wow!!!
    Froyo before lunch....yes please!!
    I thought I was the only person who used white out tape in my day planner! :)


  5. I've been craving froyo like a crazy woman! I had it Tuesday and I'm still thinking about it!

  6. What a fun week! And I can totally relate to Sam wanting to come home and crash on the couch on date night - I am guilty of that myself! This week, we were so determined to get our date night, that my husband dropped me off and picked me up from work on date night so that I couldn't go home and crash! ;)

  7. Your planner is fantastic! I use to be organized like that in college. Now I have nothing but work stuff to organize, and that is all digital! That senior session is amazing! Glad your date night worked out!

  8. You guys look like you're having the time of your life over there :) I love how much your little guy smiles

  9. Seriously, who siphons gas? People are lame.

    p.s. when i was little, i remember always playing around and hiding inside my toy chest! ;)
