Lauren went to spend the week in Lawrence with her grandparents. She had a very nice time. This is a photo of Lauren and my mother. I love them both so very much. They came and picked her up, and brought her home, so I got to see my parents two weekends in a row!!!
My parents stopped at my brother Matt's house and picked up Liam, so that he and Justin could spend some time together. They have a lot of fun.
Steven and I went on our out and about day, and he took me to Yoder to the Carriage Crossing for brunch. I love how they serve a small loaf of bread with a sweet cinnamon butter. I got my normal fried chicken with baked potato and baked beans. Yummmm!!!
I saw this mug, and I thought how strange they had an I love New York mug in an Amish community. Then I looked closer, and had to laugh!
We picked up a jar of jam and a loaf of bread, before we left.
Sweet Lauren picked out this little lamb for sweet Lilah. I guess she likes it quite a lot. Lauren says she likes little things that aren't too large. What a darling little sweetie pie.
Speaking of sweet...I told my sister Lori that Tristyn and I will have a dance at his wedding. I selected a song by Enya that I used to play when he napped as a baby. I told her I am going to cry and so she purchased me her favorite water proof mascara to wear for the wedding. She is so sweet and thoughtful to me. I am blessed to have her for a sister.
This is one of my favorite things. I purchased some hand knit cotton dish rags from Etsy. I truly love them. They are so much nicer to use than my regular dish rags. I love that even though I can not knit, thanks to Etsy, I can enjoy such a item.
Megan and I went to lunch and then to dinner on a mother, daughter day. We also purchased items so that she could make slime. Steven took a day off of work, so that he and Justin could enjoy a father, son day. They went bowling, out to eat and skating, then he played video games with Justin. We all had a nice time.
In my living room right now, I am burning my Peeps candle by Yankee. I purchased Yankee's drop in hurricane, and I love it. My coffee table is so large that a single candle on it's own did not look right. Now thanks to this drop in, I can burn any candle I like!
I like to melt a companion wax along with my Yankee candles, because they have a pretty light throw. This is the combo wax I am melting with my Peeps candle. They smell so yummy together!
This morning our little home is a typical Monday house. Meaning it is a mess!!! I have been deep cleaning. I scrubbed the tub and sinks. I took my shower curtain down and am washing it. I took a little coffee break and enjoyed some Youtube. Now, I have to get back to cleaning. I just have so much to do today. I hope everyone has a nice week. Hugs. Juli
