the holiday

Ahhhhhh... back to life.  Back to following some sort of daily routine. Back to playing organizer, planning menus, and being productive.

Well, let me take that back, there was a lot of productivity here this weekend.  Just more festive productivity, and for fun red-white-and-blue get togethers.

Here, let me help you spot the productivity amidst the celebrating...

Productivity: stuffing medjool dates then wrapping in bacon.

Productivity: making very, very complicated cookies after watching Martha's "easy to do" video tutorial 500 times with the girls.  Why didn't they go for my suggestion, something much easier??

Productivity: starting the morning of the 4th off with this: clearing out our partially flooded basement storage room, for the third time.

Really, though, does life really ever slow down for Mamas during holidays?  Just enough.

 

How was your weekend? Tomorrow I'll show you my living room wall, completed!  As Bobby says, it's "hipster collage."  Can't you tell he loves it??
