lately

I have been a bit absent.. I have a ton to post about but for some of it I'm not ready just yet. Mostly we are in between a lot of things.. like..

We have ordered window treatments for our and the boys rooms.. We went back and forth about curtains.. I thought about stenciling fun curtains for the boys like I had done before for D's nursery. But in all honesty I just don't have the time for a DIY. We bought and returned a few different curtains for our room..


our windows are placed oddly.. the set of windows on the other side are not a problem but this little one behind the bed is awkward.. so we thought roman shades? I'm mulling over the placement of art and photographs too.. something off center maybe..? Thinking thinking.. planning planning..

Speaking of planning.. we are also planning our vacation days.. hopefully my ankle will be better by then.. in case you haven't been following along here's the ankle story. I am now taking two medicines... and am 75% better.. just 25% more to go..

We had few wonderfully warm.. even hot days last week so we basked in the sun while we could because it feels a lot like winter again :(



H is getting so big.. independent.. hot tempered..he's a it's a my way or the high way type of kid.. and wants to do everything all by himself.. he is talking up a storm and now calls me by my name if I don't respond to mom quick enough. 

We talked about the women's history month diorama.. in the end we picked the chocolate chip lady.. Ruth Wakefield.. the project seemed a bit to anti feminist for my taste.. but I am glad we didn't do Amelia Earhart.. half the class choose to do their project about her.. 


This months project is to upcycle and repurpose an everyday item into something useful. After scrolling through Pinterest these were my favorites 

 source - The cutest project but I can't just buy one wick anywhere and a don't need a dozen :(

 source - probably the one we will end up doing.. its the easiest plus costs us no extra $

 source - also pretty simple but I don't know how excited I can get D for a magazine holder

In other news.. only 14 more days to GOT! Yay.. seriously.. it is the highlight of our April.. we have been looking forward to this since the season ended last year and have been watched the trailer multiple times trying to analyse the hidden meanings..

  1. You have a lot going on, Hena. I can't wait to see what you choose for curtains. I really love the way the diorama turned out, it's awesome. I love the big cookie. H sounds so much like my daughter at that age. My son was really calm and laid-back. Nothing prepared me for the little miss. :) I hope your ankle is doing better every day, especially so you can enjoy your summer plans. Hope you have a good week.

  6. Hena, my boys made little bird houses out of milk jugs when they were in boyscouts. It's not the prettiest thing hanging in your tree but they are so proud of them. Of course, my boys are big now...24 and 26. :)

    I hope you ankle recovers fully. It's so hard to have a fun spring when you are limping.

  7. Wow; I forgot about your ankle. I can't believe it's been a month. I just turned my right foot for the third time in eight months. Had to walk further home. It's not as bad as the first time but more uncomfortable than the second. I need to get some ice. Don't sweat on the curtains. It'll come to you when it's right. Take care.

  10. I hope your 25% of ankle healing happens lickety split! We just painted the little bathroom and it was much needed. I can't wait to put the room all together but I'm waiting for him to finish up his touch ups.

  11. So sorry you're still troubled by this ankle, but I'm glad it's making progress! I have a funky window placement in one of my rooms as well. It's so frustrating not being happy with any set up really. If you find something that "works" let us know!!

  14. We have been wanting to buy a bird feeder for our yard, but is wary of all that potential bird poop. I think it would be fun though. Looking forward in hearing about your vacation planning. I am in the same mode!

  19. We too have a strange little window in one of the boys' rooms. I've seen some tutorials on pinterest to turn it into a farmhouse window, so I may do that eventually. And yes, GOT!!!
