Is it legal to have this much fun?

Today was a FAN-TASTIC day!  I started out with a shopping trip to the outlet mall with my mom, sister and brother.  I don’t really remember the last time it was just us – without my kids running around like crazy boys.  I spent most of my time walking around with my brother – helping him pick out new clothes for school.  My baby brother is going to be senior in high school this year!  I remember changing that boy’s diapers!  And here he is, way taller than me, with a girlfriend and planning to go to college.  How on earth did this happen?

I don’t get to spend a lot of time with him anymore.  He is busy with sports, friends and a job — and I don’t need to elaborate on what I’m busy with.  When I lived at home after I graduated college I remember watching Hannah Montana with him every night before falling asleep.  I slept on a day bed – so we usually pulled out the under mattress and would have sleepovers.  (sorry Jake if I’m embarrassing you with these stories!)  I just look so fondly on these memories – bonding with my baby brother.  I miss it.  A lot.

After some amazing sibling and mama bonding, I headed over to a dear friend’s house to help her paint her on-the-way-baby-girl’s nursery.  Patty is a woman who I actually met through the blog, believe it or not.  She has proven to be a supportive friend with a deep faith, who can understand just how crazy it can be to raise a 20 month old boy(s).  Her son Tucker, was born just two weeks after the triplets.  This time she is having a baby girl – and she’s coming in about a month an a half!  Not like I’m excited or anything 🙂

She’s a planner — so a few months ago she asked me if I would be her daughter’s godmother (along with her brother and sister-in-law).  I was thrilled to say yes!  I wanted to help in some way to prepare for this little girl’s arrival.  When she said she wanted to repaint the nursery, I offered my services.  Little did I know it wasn’t just going to be just painting four walls – it would be painting stripes on a wall!  Together we managed to get the taped lines pretty darn straight, along with two coats of crayola yellow paint AND hundreds of laughs.

I can’t wait to see what our master piece looks like without the blue painter’s tape!  I’ve got a few more pinterest projects to finish off the Sunshine theme … gosh I love crafts 🙂

What can I say … it was a good day!  And tomorrow I get to head to a birthday party for the kids of another dear friend of mine.  Is it legal to have this much fun in one weekend?

Love, Mel

  1. Wait until you get to the Cousin’s Carnival…we might have gotten a little out of control. Probably because we had an entire week off to prepare! 😉 Can’t wait to see you and the FANTASTICAL cake you made for Zoey!!! 😀
