Best invite ever!

My friend Melissa is on of the most creative and talented people I know.  She made amazing quilts for the boys, which I should post photos of but I suck at taking photos of stuff.  I can never quite get it right and these quilts deserve better than that!
I did have to take a photo of the Oscar night/birthday bash invites she sent out.
They. are. impressive.

Like I said, I take crap photos of anything other than my kiddo's but here it is. 
It came with a lovely ticket to the event, two ballots sealed with mini movie theater drinks and a Fourtune Teller Miracle Fish!
I bet none of the celebs attending the actual Oscar's will get anything as cool as that Fish in their swag bags.

Thursday or can I survive until Friday?

Sutt is home from preschool on Tuesdays and Thursdays right now. He is having a hard time adjusting to the changes in his schedule and our lives in general. Add that to a bit of the terrible twos going on threes.

Yay life is fun and full of surprises!

Yes, that drips with sarcasm.

I have been stressing out about it daily. I hate leaving a screaming, crying kiddo at preschool but I pay dearly for some time to keep the house livable and have some alone time with Ollie, or nap or read some chick lit.

Gotta have priorities, right?

Here is a little of what we did today.

I also got a little cleaning help while I did a load and a half of dishes, 3 loads of laundry and nursed a seemingly insatiable 4 month old.

Judging back the background of this photo it looks like I missed the kitchen entirely, oops.

Then came craft time. We decided to make Daddy a Valentine's Day present.

He is sure to be thrilled.

Obviously my craft skills are stuck in the 80's.
