Now on to the good stuff!
People, this is what happens when I attempt to re-create Pinterest projects.
I found this little lovebirds-in-a-jar project while browsing Pinterest on my phone recently (something Ben will tell you takes up 85% of my day... I say 40% is more realistic):
I thought it was kind of creative and cute and not your usual run-of-the-mill Valentine's Day decor.
So, I tried to make my own (apology here for the lack-luster photo... I didn't even bother editing it):
Look closely... those birds look like they are sitting in their own goopy excrement. Just darling, isn't it?
Speaking of movements (hahaha!), Maggie joined the anti-bare-feet alliance and got herself (by unabashedly begging me) a sparkly pair of Toms, thereby donating a pair of new shoes to a child in need. (She was sure to emphasize that perk to Ben who wondered why she needed a pair of Toms in the first place. Of course, we all know that really she just wanted keep up with the smaller Boca crowd, who are- apparently- extremely benevolent...)
This purchase just continues to show that my children dress better than me... (free "gently used" pair of Chaco flip-flops that your husband found on the side of the road anyone???)
New things that are happening this coming month that would be blog-worthy, but I'll probably be too lazy to blog about them:
We will (hopefully) be finding out soon if this baby is going to be of the male or female persuasion.
Ben put me on a strict cash-not-card budget. Boo.
Maggie is starting ballet.
I am finally potty-training Oscar.
p.s. If you, too, would like to attempt the "Lovebirds" project, go here. Theirs is waaaaay cuter than mine.
