a month in review

That’s what it has been since my last confession – I mean blog post.  A month.

A Major Project:

  • A jumbo blank canvas covered my table all month long.
  • I finally finished it…
  • And actually hung it in the living room – kinda in love with it.

A Visit home and St. Patrick’s Day:

  • A visit to mom and dad’s to see my sister, brother in law, and niece
  • Which turned into a baby photo shoot
  • and celebrating my dad’s birthday.
  • Drove home to make sure we got to Jacob’s favorite event of the year – St. Patrick’s Day at Erin’s Snug in Madison.

Spring Break:

  • 2 kids home for a week
  • Me with Bronchitis and a sinus infection
  • Hours of plans spent instead on the couch watching movies and playing video games in pajamas all day
  • According to the boys – best Spring Break – EVER!  (Who knew…)
  • Easter ended up being at home instead of Chicago – I barely made it through church!

  1. It’s a wonder you can get anything done . I must say, I adore the bird wall canvas and would love to have that in my home !

    Hope things slow down for you , at least for a bit – soon it will be summer and the kids will be out of school !
