So here's just some randomness...in case you need a little more of that in your life...
Have you seen my sweet Battle of the Books winner? The competition was last week (clearly I'm a little late on this blog post). In the 2nd round, my school's team (the five sweet kids that I coached) went up against my daughter's team. It was kind of like Sophie's Choice. But Chan's team won that round, went on to the finals and brought the trophies home! They were amazing. Truly. And Chan really needed this win.
Last week I was sort of back on track with salads for lunch. We need a better eating plan in this house. My shorts from last summer don't fit, so we're working on Operation Angie Doesn't Wear Jeans in 90 Degree Heat. That's all I'm asking for people.
I bought this sampler pattern from the fabulous Pam G last Spring and I finally finished it over Spring Break. This year. It really probably only took about 3 weeks, working on it in the evenings, to get it done...it was the part where I put it down for 11 months that really held things up. I found the frame at Michaels for $8 and I love it....even though it isn't cut right to put a mat in it and Chris had to use the nail gun + duct tape to make it secure enough to hang. None of which you can see from the front, so it's a-ok in my book.
So....this is what Ike does around mile 2 for fun when Chris or I are on the treadmill. Drops his toys onto the belt. They then go sailing off into the wall behind the treadmill, he runs back to pick them up and he starts all over again. I think I could win some money on Funniest Home Videos with this one.
