Friday Friday Friday

Ahhhh.... it's Friday.  Even though I'm currently on a break from work (maybe I should say "work") Friday is still a day of excitement and expectation!  I just love the sound of the word... Friday.  Friday.

Well now, I thought I'd share a few fun things from the week.

First up, Emerson and I have had a lot of fun in the kitchen together lately.  Grooveshark + jolly jumper + dairy free cooking experiments = some pretty great dance parties.  It's hip hop Sunday at church this week... we've been practicing our moves.  Now, just gotta find the perfect outfits...

Next up.  I'm not entirely sure what to call these creatures, but whatever they are, Caleb and I made them.  We had a bit of a scavenger hunt around the yard yesterday and found a bunch of smooth rocks and pine cones.  Then we colored the rocks with crayons and glued googly eyes and pom poms to them with my glue gun.  Yes, I just said glue gun.  I found a cheap mini glue gun at Zellers for $3.00 and couldn't help myself.  It's definitely taken craft time to the next level.  These little guys have endured much creative play over the past two days... a couple of them may be missing an eye or two...

And then... I found this cute little garden stool at Home Sense for my living room.  I saw it and knew it would look so pretty in my house.  When I brought it home, Doug looked at the stool... then he looked at me with this expression on his face that said "what on EARTH is this?"  I quickly jumped in and told him exactly why I bought it.  "So Doug, picture this-- the kids are in bed and you're on the couch watching TV with a snack in hand-- instead of having to reach ALL the way down to the floor you can just move this little stool over to the edge of the couch and you instantly have a place to rest your snack!  So as you see, this is a portable snack holder."  Doug's response?  Awesome!  Great purchase.  So maybe that wasn't really the first and foremost reason in my mind, and I'm pretty sure he saw right through my reasoning, but I'm glad that we'll both be able to appreciate this new addition to the living room.

And one more thing that makes me happy-- we made a trip across the border last night for a bit of shopping and I picked up my favorite kitchen hand soap-- only in a new scent!  I actually didn't buy it for the new scent-- just the packaging... it's pink.

Have a good weekend everybody!
