We did a little running and then realized we had been going down hill for quite some time. We stopped dead in our tracks and turned around.
We had a long, steep hill to walk all the way back up the second half of the run. Uh-oh.
Needless to say, we slowed our pace. I am so glad we did. It was quite the work out pushing those mack daddy strollers up that hill.
I really enjoyed it and so did Tess, I think I might start taking her with me to more 5 and 10ks. It might be our Mommy/daughter "thing."
Hubby and Bram had a "guys night" on Saturday while Tess and I headed into Austin for a birthday party. On the way home, I was certain she would fall asleep. Nope. She sang "Happy Birthday" to every. single. person she could think of . The ENTIRE way home.
Yesterday morning, the little lady woke up a 6 am, AGAIN, so as I was sitting on the playroom floor drinking my coffee, I looked around the playroom. Really? Who needs this much STUFF! I got some trash bags and went to town.
6 trash bags later, the playroom is much more organized. You read that correct.
6 trash bags later. SIX trash bags later. Seis trash bags later.
That is ridiculous. And I have to say, if ANYONE gives either kid a stuffed animal ever again.
I will punch that person in the face. No joke.
Today I will be taking it all to the battered women's shelter in town. Where these toys are needed, not wanted.
Moving on, please click the below picture to make larger. Notice the antique shoe forms I have going up the wall. Go ahead click the pic, don't be scared, and try to look past that weird little kid.
I have them hanging up just on nails. Well, the two bottom ones have started falling off. And causing damage to the wall. But I LOVE them so. Does anyone have any other ideas on how to get those suckers to stay up there?
I have had the large shoe form that is on the stand for quite sometime. A few weeks ago, I was at a local flea market and saw the others, got a great deal and the idea to put those up the wall popped in my head. I think they look really cool and want them to stay but this problem must be resolved, pronto, the Hubs is getting not happy about the scratches on the wall.
Yesterday, I bought some very long screws, I am hoping this solves the problemo, but before I do it, if anyone has a better idea do tell. Ok.
Last but definitely not least. I was asked to put up some pics of my powder bath. My plate collection is covering it from ceiling to floor. At Bunco on Wednesday, somebody said they were trying to explain this bathroom to a friend but couldn't. Which is odd, now that I think about it, since it is just plates on a wall, but whatever.
So here it is, as best as I could photograph a tiny powder bath:
Some others, from Japan, Switzerland, China, London, Arkansas (ha!), Ireland, Austria, and then lots and lots that I pick up at flea markets or antique stores that just tickle my fancy. Did I travel to all of these places? I wish! I am lucky that I have friends and family that see something special, think of me, and pick a plate up here and there.
I have said it before and I will say it again. Plates are one of the easiest and cheapest ways to decorate. For real, dawg.
Today is Monday, laundry day in Cocoland. I hope everyone's Monday is more exciting than mine.
Tata for now.
