Sorry I haven't been around much this week...didn't want to subject you to my complaining about school (nothing major...mostly whining about having to do group projects and needing to buy extra books in each class that weren't originally listed) and I have been trying to savor the last little bits of summer this week since Sean and Mac are still home.
Speaking of Mac...
I learned today he is one heck of a corn shucker...we brought some home from the local farm stand and he asked to do it. I hadn't realized when we were in Iowa my sister-in-law totally taught him how to do it. (he also commandeered my new polka-dot apron our neighbors brought back from a trip for me)
Besides fresh sweet corn nothing much has been happening around here...we've been getting ready today for Sean's birthday tomorrow...it'll be anti-climatic after all the hoopla last year, but hopefully it'll be good. He said all he wanted for his birthday was biscuits and gravy for breakfast and spaghetti for dinner...so I'm all prepared to feed him and my family for a little celebration tomorrow night.
As for gifts he said he didn't want anything after our big trip but I had to get him a little something so I went to where every guy loves to go, Bed Bath & Beyond. :) He's actually really been wanting one of these and you've got to love 20% off coupons (by the way you know you can use multiple & expired coupons in a purchase right? I try to make it a personal mission to always spread the word about this...you really can do it...I used four today). Mac decided he needed this too.
So that's about it...I snapped a few photos of what's been making me happy around here this week...the magnets Mac collected on our trip hanging on the locker style cabinet in his room, my ridiculous collection of spices which I've been actually using, and one of the sunflowers popping up in our backyard since Sean planted a bunch at the beginning of the summer...oh and one layout...I'm excited to scrap more from the trip but schoolwork is going to be getting in the way for awhile.
Have a great holiday weekend!
