Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen things I have done so far on my summer vacaction:

1. Cooked a lovely meal in my Crock Pot

2. Slept in until 6:30 (That's right. My adorable children think that 6:30 is a good time to get up.)

3. Dusted the entire house

4. Went to the big city and had lunch with my sister (without the kids!)

5. Did 72 loads of laundry and for once I did everything-washed, dried, AND put away

6. Picked up about 1,000 tractors

7. Made hot chocolate for the kids at 6:45 this morning per their request because nothing says summer vacation like hot chocolate

8. Bought this sign (on the gate) and planted the pentunias. I am waiting on my husband to get more "miracle grow" from the barn for my top bucket.
9. After years of waiting for my husband to do something with it, I finally just took matters into my own hands and took an empty, barren piece of land and did this! 3 days ago it was completely full of weeds and leaves. Oh, and a broken whiskey barrel planter. The kids are I worked our butts off and got it deweeded (mostly) cleaned out, planted, and spruced up. I personally told our favorite dump truck owner that I wanted a load of pea gravel today! Woo hoo!

10. Found my daughter dressed like this. I like to call the picture, "Russian Peasant."

11. Proofread my sister's wedding invitations. We don't want another Save the Date fiasco.

12. Had lunch with my mom (She bought. Yay!)

13. Downloaded Carrie Underwood's "Last Name" onto my iPOD. LOVE that song. (You can hear it too. Just click "play" on my music list.)

I found you through the CWO blogroll (I think). Your daughter is adorable in that get-up but I laughed out loud 5 minutes at your caption under the picture. Hilarious and so true. hehe

No it was the Thursday 13 blogroll...duh.

Debbie said...

I had no idea this Thursday 13 thing was so huge--I've only seen 1 other person do it and thought you were being all original! LOL
LOVE LOVE LOVE Russian peasant. Although since she has 2 different shoes on, she can't be that poor.
Plantings are very impressive!
I cleaned the pantry today. Maybe I should post 13 things I got rid of. Hmmm.

Kat said...

Love your list. And your gardening. So pretty! And you did it yourself :-) And that Russian peasant...omg...too funny!

Angie said...

Sandy and Gina-Glad you came by and enjoyed the Russian Peasant as much as I did!
Deb-Love the Thursday Thirteen. It takes forever if I try to get too creative, but this one was pretty easy. I thought I was going to pee my pants when my Russian Peasant came outside. She went in with JUST the dress and matching shoes. She came out a mess. LOL I sadly don't have enough in my pantry to clean out. I am a horrible grocery shopper!
Kat-It's nice of you to comment on my planting with your pretty pictures! I hope to get that pea gravel soon. It will make that area look better than it has in years!

Russian peasant, that is perfect. She is just so cute.
Love what you have done with the garden..I have an area of weeds just calling my name...

Debbie said...

And good luck keeping the tractors and trailers (and other names I don't know!) out of your coveted pea gravel!
