we’re just gonna jump right in today…
monday | june 25:
a quick trip to the park for some running and sliding.
tuesday | june 26:
basketball boys. i love when matt texts me pics of their adventures!
wednesday | june 27:
so…i joined twitter. i know i’m super late to the party, but fashionably late. so don’t forget to follow me @retrohipmama (i’ll totally follow you back!) if you are a fellow twit. i have no idea if that’s the right terminology or not. hopefully you’re not offended. 😉
i did it for this: the shereadstruth bible studies. available on the youversion app, they @ and # all over twitter and i wanted to be involved. so far, i am loving the 21 day “living a surrendered life” study. they have a blog too if you’re looking…shereadstruth.com.
and they have these cool lock screen photos for free!
today’s #lunchis: turkey and cheddar roll ups, raw veggies and a glass of cherry coke. if you’re on instagram, #lunchis is a hashtag that kristymakes came up with to celebrate her quiet and consistent lunchtime routine. follow along and then tag your lunch photos…it’s fun and there are a lot of good ideas!
bathroom is today’s #photoadayjune. i decided on this shot because listening to the radio is one of the most important things i do in the morning. if i’m in the mood for music, it’s always the oldies station. if i want to be informed, it’s conservative talk radio. but no matter what, it wakes me up and gets my morning started.
this is mario. he wears the hat (even in the tub), says “mama-media” (his was of saying mama-mia), “blip-blips” fireballs at an imaginary bowser, plays mario bros on the wii, and right now, is watching other people play mario bros on youtube. i know my little marshall is in there somewhere.
thursday | june 28:
today’s #photoadayjune is on the shelf. so much to choose from in my house since we use a lot of shelving. i snapped pictures of DVDs, books, puzzles, hats…but this one stood out. i was soooo happy to have found blue flowers at michael’s a while back and i just love this color combo.
friday | june 29:
matt took the boys to the park again today.
gibson’s last day of comedic acting. this is his impression of walter, the old dummy due in jeff dunham’s comedy acts.
the kids showing us what they learned in class. improv style. pretending to be a machine that puts the wrappers on crayons. this is really funny folks. i guess you had to be there.
matt and i went to a friend’s house (and met some really awesome new friends!) with gibson and marsh had a sleepover with his best bud!
saturday | june 30:
#lunchis not-you-boring-tuna-sandwich. instead of mayo, i use avocado in my tuna, then seasoned with sea salt, pepper and dill. i tossed on some sliced cherry tomatoes and enjoyed the heck out of it! i also had white peaches on the side and a few sips of raspberry lemonade.
after a somewhat lazy day, i was really wanting to
binge snack. so i decided to do something that required both hands, thus working on a project and NOT snacking mindlessly. it kept me busy until dinner.
unfortunately, i caved when gibson wanted to buy us thrifty’s ice cream. he paid and the three of us indulged. me? mint n’ chip on a cone. i’m not very proud of myself. but gibson sure is cute!
this pretty much ended our night. besides doing a major clean up of the front yard, cleaning up a mess of ants that found their way to a chip under the couch and some pool fun out back, we just hung the heck out. matt, on the other hand, did a couple hours of exercise while i napped and played on the iPad.
all-in-all…a super week! hoping to do more summery activities this week. any suggestions?
