My Tuesday Ten

Stephanie Lynn at Under the Table and Dreaming is doing a party when you tell ten things you have done over the past week.

Since it was such a long time from my last post I thought I would tell you ten things I have been doing over the past month.

{1} First of all I am sure all of you have heard of Pinterest. Well it is my new obsession. Whenever Mr. Genius catching me on the computer now he says, "Are you Pinteresting again?" or sings "Ad-dic-ted".

I LOVE this site! You can find so many ideas on it!

Here is the link to my Pinterest account.

Look at some of the things I have found on there!

Baked Parmesan Tomatoes!! This is my new favorite food. This is coming from a woman that is not a big tomato fan. My mom is so proud.

This is my new favorite saying that will be put up somewhere in my house. Just need to find the time to do that.

{2} I have read this BEST book. Seriously, I read it in my 2 hour nap/quiet time. If you have lost someone dear to you whether it be a friend, family member or child. I highly recommend this book.

Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo. This book is a true story about a little boy just under 4 years old that dies and goes to heaven for what he says was 3 minutes then came back and he slowly tells his parents about what he saw while he was there. I have read books about heaven before. Especially after dad died, like 90 minutes in heaven and Heaven by Randy Alcorn. But this one is by far my favorite. This book has made me so excited about going to heaven. I can't wait to see my dad my grandparents...all without glasses, (because there are no glasses in heaven) and most of all Jesus and the angels and our baby that we miscarried over 6 years ago.

{3} The next thing I have gotten into is Heartsy.com. 
I am sure you all have heard about etsy.com well Heartsy.com is the groupon equilavant for etsy. It is a way to get some items in etsy for 50% off of more! I signed up a while back ago from another's blog (can't remember who) and she mentioned that if you sign up with her both I can her will get $5 off our first purchase. It was free to sign up so I thought I would give it a try.

One day Kiss a Prince was having a special for $15 for $30 in her shop. So I bought it and got 2 sugar scrubs and one solid lotion.

With the voucher for signing up under that blogger I got $30 worth of product for just $10! WooHoo.

I love the stuff too.

{4} Next week we are going on a vacation!!! Although I do need to say that where we are staying has NO air conditioning, NO TV, and NO indoor shower. Yes you read that right NO INDOOR shower. I will be either taking a shower at night or in my bathing suit. Honestly I think it will be a combination of the two. But what I am excited about is this will be our first vacation as a family with just the 4 of us. But I am praying that the 110 degree heat we are experiencing this week will be long gone. I may have to keep chanting to myself..we are creating memories, we are creating memories, to keep me going.

{5} There are 35 days left until Wild Man goes to Kindergarten!!! My life will not be the same after that day.

{6} I am working on make my own fabric for Wild Man's room with Spoonflower. His room needs some personality....bad. Wild Man put in a request for a Super Hero room with green and orange. This will be interesting.

{7} I have the urge to purge...I have this overwhelming feeling that we have too much stuff. When the boys aren't looking I am throwing away so many toys or putting them in the garage sale pile.

{8} Cuz I am crazy we are having another garage sale...because of point number 7.

{9} Sometimes after bath time and we tell Romeo to get his pajamas on and Mr. Genius and I are talking about the day in our bedroom we look down and see this...

We have our own naked cowboy who is stratigic where he places his guitar.

{10} I am now going to get a lot of crazies on my site because I just typed naked.

Have a good day everyone and do your best to stay cool.

So fun to read! I cannot wait to try those parmesan tomatoes, and I can't stop telling people to read Heaven is Real! It was such a comforting book, full of goosebumps :)

Those tomatoes look fabulous, I've never heard of that book but am nervous to read it (not sure why), no indoor shower makes me want to cry (but have a blast), I did a superhero room for my son when he was little and I loved it, every house should have a naked cowboy, I signed up for Heartsy but haven't really checked it out since (I should!) and I forget what else!

Kat said...

Love your list! However I'm totally jealous that you get your boys to have a 2 hour quiet time every day! That just ain't happenin with Griff :(
