new to me

so i'm looking at planting like i should give myself a break because it's all new to me. for instance. when it tells you on the plant info that you need full sun. well, i know where the sun rises and where the sun sets but i'm still not sure where to plant my stuff.
i'm thinking the best way to look at this is to think, "hey, this is a new learning experience." when i started couponing 4 months ago it was the same thing. but now i feel like i'm a coupon queen. me and the boys planted 3 lilies. i'm going to try and keep them healthy and happy for as long as possible even if i don't know what i'm doing.

my little fever man

today i was headed to my artists way book club to talk about the vision board... which still isn't finished but is closer than the day before. anyway, little ethan has fever and i just couldn't leave him. so i've spent more time working on the board and caring for my dear heart. i hope to take photos tomorrow.

i'm also still working on my book for the 25th of the month challenge too. looks like i've got pics to take.

artist's way board

i'm working on my artists way vision board. i'm not sure if that's exactly what you call it but i'm working on it. me and the boys got outside with some paint today. there is something so freeing about painting like you did when you were a kid. watching nolan was such fun. he really gets into the paint and smears it around. he touches it and looks at it and really looks like he is intent on making something happy.
now that my board is painted i have to add the words and pics. off to nap and then cut up some mags for the VISION!

mud, iPhone, and little people words

somehow we ended up on the mud trails. every bump we would go over the boys would say, "cool" and "whoa". ethan also has a new word that he uses alot... "awesome." chad had a serious car wash after we were finished while the boys and i went home to get cleaned up.
i got an iphone. how cool is that? i didn't even know that i really wanted an iphone but now that i have it. well let's just say that it is "awesome." of course it's going to take me weeks to figure out how to use it. plus i've got to figure out how to get my stuff from my dell axim and my old cell phone and my ipod. it sure will be nice having everything in one place though. yeah for me.
ethan told me that we are going to have to send nolan to another family if he keeps running off. i always wonder what makes little people think of these things. i love hearing the funny things that roll out of their mouth. i was telling nolan that i loved him more than rainbows, and presents, etc. etc. he said, "you love me more than coffee?" yeah and i haven't had a cup of coffee for over a month now.

paint paint glorious paint

we are shopping for paint today. don't you think paint just adds happy to a place? we've moved alot and so we don't usually paint but i'm itching to add some happy color to this place. i think it will change everything. i'm thinking of crystal springs by benjamin moore for my kitchen/dining. love blues and greens.
