Crazy Busy Week.

This week has been crazy busy.
The first few weeks of school are always so busy with meetings, etc.
When I sat down & looked at our calendar for the week I wasn't sure how I was going to survive the week. I had 2 before school meetings & 1 after school meeting.
Oh yeah, and Claire's Birthday Party is this weekend! Yeah!

The busyness started last Friday with an impromptu block party on our court to celebrate surviving the first week of school.

Saturday we had THREE parties.
A 3rd birthday party, a Fiesta at our neighbors house & then a combo 1 year old/10 year old birthday party for these kids:
Sunday we had church & I had a photo shoot while Kevin swam with the girls.
Of course now that summer is over & the school has started the weather is in the high 90's.

Monday was pretty mellow, so I read the ginormous Restoration Hardware magazine/catalog that came in the mail. I wonder how many trees were killed in making that catalog.
Tuesday's Tomato Harvest:
And, our watermelon! Anyone know when a watermelon is ready to pick?
Wednesday was a whirlwind. I had school, then I dropped off a meal to my friend Nicole who just had baby (Taco Soup!)
Then I had a 2 hour math meeting. Fun. Fun.
Kate wore my shoes when I got home.
Last night was Back to School Night. I may or may not have made my Presentation 2 hours before it started. Queen of Procrastination!
Kate took a picture of her room:
Today I was in charge of bringing in breakfast & Friday Treats for our staff. Normally I make homemade stuff. Not this year....Costco to the rescue!
And....it is officially College Football Season!!!!
Colorado plays Hawaii tomorrow night.
The girls are ready to wear their new shirts & cheer on the Buffs!
Oh yeah, and LOTS of birthday party prep was done this week!
Here's a sneak peak:
Assembling favors!
I still have a TON more to do for the party!
It is going to be fun! I can't wait!

  1. Wow, girl. You are superwoman. Im doing all I can to survive this new teaching job and you're running circles around me. I cant wait to hear more deets on the party:) Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Thank goodness for Costco! I hardly ever make anything for my book club anymore. Its always Costco to the rescue for me!

  3. You did have a busy week!
    Time is just flying by isn't it!
    I can't imagine what life will be like next year when I've got two kids and two different schools and working too! Yikes.

    Loved your before and after pics of your yard. It looks SO nice now. I am sure you guys will get so much enjoyment from it.

    (I never got an email from DrewB about the unposing guide. I know she had a baby so she's probably crazy busy, do you think I should ask about it?)

  4. OMG I am dying to see the rest of the party details! It looks SO cute!!

  9. We have SO much in common..but you seem to be handling the craziness with more grace than me. :)

  10. Isn't amazing how life can go from so relaxed to INSANE in one week! I have a love/hate relationship with school starting. I love the routine, but hate the craziness that it brings!
    Looking forward to the party pics! :)
