spring break.

Yes... spring break was a month ago. But my life seems to be running about a month behind right now, so... (most of this is from Instagram. My camera has been pretty non-existent lately...) 

Why yes... Cleaning and organizing the craft room IS on my Spring Break To-Do-List!

The dining room was on the list, too. Gretchen's been very crafty lately... 

Spring Break To-Do-List (currently 2 pages)... my frazzled brain already feels calmer.

Best sleeping spot in the house.  #somuchsunshine

Seriously. Find something to clean or get where I can't see you.

I'm pretty sure normal people don't put things like "organize cat food" on their to-do lists. But isn't this green basket happy?! No before picture, but trust me... it wasn't happy.

Look! Our kitchen table does have a top! 

Goal: To be a fun mom today. Lunch out, 3 hours of shopping, $10 to spend on whatever at Target. (I only texted "Kill me now" to my friend once.) Ended with all 5 of us at "Cinderella." (Leather reclining seats!)

Started at 10:30 pm... Finished at 12:30 am. Read book... check.

The girls are playing dress up. Gretchen's eyelashes... with mascara... Oh. My. Word.  

Already looking forward to my morning coffee. Polka dots make everything happier. Especially mugs you painted yourself. #ilovecolor  #andpolkadots

Weird kids. 

 Lawson got to have Ezra spend the night for his birthday. They spent the day with Grandpa, doing all kinds of fun things. 

Lunch picnic at the park with Daddy. (and playing on the tanks afterwards.)

I forgot that I had Thin Mints hidden in the freezer. What a fabulous surprise! 

More happiness... hidden in the fridge. How do I keep forgetting these things?! 

The Thin Mints and Reese's Eggs were needed. The week wasn't all sunshine and smiles. 

Barbies clothes are made out of Play-Do. Goodness, this girl makes me smile. =) 

Sometimes you find happy things when you're decrapifying. =) (This is one of my FAVORITE pictures!) 

Look how clean and organized this big closet is! 

Of course, that meant I had to find a spot for all the stuff I took OUT of the closet! 

Simone was super helpful. =) 

Clean and organized! So much happier! =)

I'm pretty sure daffodils are the second friendliest flower. =) 

Such a lovely combination of productive and lazy.
That's what Spring Break is all about.

Oh man, quite the letter. Glad you had chocolate and cookies to ease the pain. Not all sunshine and rainbows over here either. This parenting job thing is HARD! Hang in there and with adorable Gretchie, she's the bonus prize to keep ya smiling through the hard days.
