Let the countdown begin!!
Prom is tomorrow night and #2 is so excited,
she may need to be medicated!
I am sure that there is nothing of educational value
going on in the classrooms today,
nothing that the girls will remember. They are too excited to learn anything!
I think we are ready.
The dress has been hemmed.
We found the perfect earrings earlier this week.
Hair appointment has been made, although I tried to talk her into wearing it down,
she didn't want to be the only one with "plain hair".
The flowers have been ordered..... hope we don't forget to pick them up in the morning!
purse, shoes, eye shadow, mints, camera.....
and of course, a really cute date.
Thought I'd join in on Kelly's fun. Today is the first day so I am scoring 100% in participation so far! I am not sure if I'll get to it every Friday. At least it is a good way to assure that there is at least one picked up room in the house for the weekend!!
looking from the family room
You can see the one thing that is so irritating to me in this picture...the black fridge. Everything else is stainless. We bought our appliances directly through GE because the man of the house works in the construction industry and does business with them. The only thing was that the appliances were shipped directly to us and we had to install them ourselves and the fridge was shipped with the stainless panels unattached. The directions say to drill holes into the doors of the fridge on the top and bottom. There is no way the man of the house was going to do this and I am afraid to get someone to come in and do it for us. Since we didn't purchase the fridge from them, and if they made a mistake, I think we would be pretty much SOL. I don't really know what to do about it. I HATE that it doesn't match the others, but I don't want to drill holes in my refrigerator. Any ideas?
coming into the kitchen from the side entry/garage/laundry room
(Why is this underlined?? and How do I get it off??)
There are also some things that my girls painted and made in school inside here . On the left side, second shelf down, is my great granny's sifter that she used when she made homemade biscuits everyday. The corks in the pitcher and bowls are the ones I have collected from all over Europe.( It is very hard trying to explain to the Italians that I collect corks. The waiters all kept thinking that I wanted to buy corks from them.) The striped dish on the top shelf is from Murano Italy. It is really pretty at night when the light shines through it.
This granite is only about a year old. It is really neat to look at. There is a lot of pattern and movement in it. I was worried about the big white areas in it, but now I think it adds character. Up close you can see little specs of red.
And here is my kitchen in action!
The man of the house informed me that we needed to try to not go out to eat as often as we do because of.....the economy, two kids in college, I want to redo a few rooms.....
So I informed him, if that was the case, he and the girls would have to step up to the plate and take over dinner COMPLETELY one night of the weekend. I didn't want to plan, shop, prepare, cook or clean. The whole reason for me loving to go out is that it is time off for me, sometimes it is the only meal I eat sitting down during the week.
So here is my family in action a few weeks ago.
#3 with the onion googles on
you need these if you don't already have them
working hard or hardly working?
don't they look happy?
#1 thinks the only thing that is keeping her from being
America's Next Top Model is her height.
She is short.
#2 is letting her know that the real reason is that she "has no skills"
I wonder what's for dinner this week???
