Photo A Day No Way Today

Today's Photo is 'Inside your Closet'. Since we've been working so hard on renovations around the house, some of the more mundane, everyday chores are getting sidetracked... including laundry folding and daily cleanup of my closet. It's a disaster area of clean, unfolded clothing, hubby's field equipment, my unorganized sewing and craft equipment corner (it's a big closet)

#FEBphotoaday 'front door'

Since we're renovating, I'm using today to dream about the color I'm going to choose for our front door...

what about this one?
or this one?
My own front door is drabby factory-finish white with muddy finger and paw prints from my lovely kiddos and dogs.. not going to share that one. I'll share the picture of when it's done!

Wordless Wednesday: Tuckered Toddler


#FEBphotoaday 'button' AND 'sun'

Okay okay.. I missed a day. But I'm still going to do that photo. 


The Coffee Machine Button... the MOST important button of my day. It's like my own personal power button.


And on to today's photo(s). Since this is what it looks like in my neck of the woods:




 This is my sun photo!

#FEBphotoaday '10 AM'

We're currently renovating our home... It's a work in progress. Example.. We have since 'finished' the kitchen and dining rooms, but have not put trim in...

This is my dining room at 10 this morning. Yup, no window. But the good news is, Mr. Smitty has finished this window, adding a custom flower box on the outside! One down, 8 more to go (for now at least).

#FEBphotoaday 'stranger'

I'm not quite outgoing enough to ask a complete stranger if I can take their photo.. but I did meet a new person today! Mr. Smitty picked up a new dress up outfit for Toddler (I swear, that girl has more dresses at age 3 than I've had combined in the last 20 years... ). She didn't try on the dress today, but Mr. Smitty also got her a tiara, clip earrings and shaded chapstick. She was ecstatic and ran around proclaiming herself to be the princess of fairyland. Now I don't know about you, but to this day, I hadn't met the princess of fairyland.. so I'm going to go with it and call this my stranger photo!

#FEBphotoaday 'hands'



Rock on Baby Girl, Rock On.
And yes, this is the only way she sucks on her hands.

Coffee Tealights

This week I was looking at my little writing desk and wondering what I could do to make it less bare. This is what I came up with!


I found this idea on Pinterest.

The planters were at the local dollar store in sets of 4 for $1. 
The coffee beans were the cheapest whole beans I could get at the commissary... $5.
Because I didn't feel like wasting the entire bag of beans on this project, I used a bag of dried black beans that I had in my cupboard as a filler. Yup, there's only an inch of beans in those bowls. Now I have 4 cute tealight holders in my favorite scent!

#FEBphotoaday 'words'

Toddler's Quiet Time
Can she read them? Nope. But she LOVES making her own story to go with the pictures, then have me read the story to see how close they are. Sometimes she's right on the spot, sometimes I like her version better than the actual written storyline.

#FEBphotoaday 'Your View Today'

Aha. You thought I forgot. Well... I did. But by my count, I still have an hour to post, hehe. 

My girls were both sick today. Nothing sucks more as mom than watching your child go through illness and being powerless to help them. At least I can offer comfort via cuddles. 



Our sick household. (wordless Wednesday)

My poor babies are sick. They decided the best way to cope was to cuddle with a mountain of stuffed animal, blankets and pillows.
