On Monday evening, we packed up the kids and headed out to our town's 4th of July parade. I admit, this is the first town parade we've attended since we moved here. Generally, our 4th weekend is overrun with a lot of family in town, but this weekend was a quieter one. So we had the chance to make our own fun. I swear these parades make you kinda fall in love with your little town. It also gives you the chance to become acquainted with every dance group and baton-twirling troupe your town has to offer. Though personally, I found the cloggers to be where it's at.
I also spent some time catching up online and on pinterest over the weekend….here are a few lovely things you might enjoy:
Amanda's post this morning : Yes, I LOVE the chair. But I so get that last paragraph, about the need to just make, even when there are so many other "musts" awaiting your time.
(In)courage : 16 Ways to Find Personal Rest : I really need to be better about number 6. Finding a babysitter. I really don't have a babysitter for my children outside of family….can you believe it? I could use a good, trustworthy babysitter.
I am absolutely ADDICTED to making these bracelets. They are so fun. If you can finger knit (or even if you can't), you'll love these. I have since passed my addiction on to the girls.
Homemade mozzarella. Enough said.
Choose a chore. I'm always looking for ways to keep it interesting.
DIY Blue Glass Canning Jars. This is a drop everything and try it craft.
Love this ring. Thinking it might get caught on everything, but still love it.
Isn't this the truth??
This is wedding weekend. I'm thinking of wearing my hair in something like this. Thoughts?
And one more good thing that I don't want to forget….yesterday afternoon as Emma was flying out the door to go to the barn she said to me, "Oh, Mom. My room isn't as messy as it looks. I'm just airing out my clothes. Bye!!"
If that's what "airing out" looks like, than apparently my whole house is "airing out"….off to find some order in the madness.
Have any goodness to share? Leave it in the comments, if you please!
Happy Wednesday, friends!
