Our spring-like weather looks like it’s here to stay but since this is New England I’m not taking anything for granted. We’ll be repeating this week with extra locations (zoo, beach, etc etc etc) thrown in for the next two months. More baths + later bedtimes are going to cut into my blog-writing time, but I’m OK with that. Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to remember we can live our lives even if I don’t write about every second of it online.

My Week(125) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

I’ve basically given up on parenting until the weather gets better, so the fact that I took ANY pictures this week that aren’t just of us staring at the television is impressive. We’re supposed to get more snow at the beginning of next week but it might be 50 on Friday, at which point I will start wearing shorts and flip flops.

Super excited by an emergency bathroom/Powerball ticket stop at a gas station

This weekend starts a few really busy weeks in our future. It will be mid-April before any of us get a day to relax again, but it’s all FUN stuff so I’m looking forward to most of it. The highlights are a fancy brunch at a fancy restaurant for Easter, Evan’s birthday party and a fancy dress ball I’m being forced (FORCED I TELL YOU!) to attend with E.  I’m hoping to get back to regular family/life/everyday blogging too, but it’s hard when I’m trying to stay on top of  family life every day. See what I did there?

My Week(124) in iPhone Photos

Monday, March 18th, 2013

We had a really, really busy weekend followed by a not-so-great night’s sleep so I’m dragging today. But I don’t want to miss another week of iPhone photos so forgive me for being unfunny and the terrible typos I am sure I won’t catch.

saturday2

Mommy-only time at a bridal shower

saturday3

My friend moved this house from Rhode Island to Connecticut, then furnished and decorated it with genuine 1700’s stuff. It’s like a museum. (p.s. She lives on the Christmas tree farm where we get our tree every year – and took that family photo up at the top of my blog!)

Next week I promise to do this in a more timely manner – although I can’t promise more interesting content. We’re all still recovering from a busy weekend, although Caroline seems to be “recovering” by only sleeping 7 hours a night. Pray for couch naps and early bedtimes.

You can leave a link to your week in iPhone photos in the comments on on my Facebook page if you want to share!

My Week(77) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

This was a looooong week for me – E was gone, the ornamental pear trees bloomed (they seem to be the only plant I am allergic to, but I am REALLY allergic), Caroline is teething, and I went back to counting points for Weight Watchers so I was tired, snotty, crabby and very very hungry. Luckily, the weather was nice and being outside wears out the kids so I could crash right after they went to bed. On lousy week scale of 1 to Jump Out A Window, it was really only a 5 or 6, so I should stop complaining.

Sunday:

Who's ready for hockey?

Family + Target = ALL MY FAVORITE THINGS

Softball? I approve of softball.

Making sure I didn't waste ANY FOOD.

Monday:

Not the worst way to wake up

Her LIFE is OVER because a) I am out of grapes b) I am out of granola bars c) I am out of fruit snacks d) ALL OF THE ABOVE OMG CALL CPS.

Getting my Vitamin D

Tuesday:

Ready for Stroller Strides

Her eyes haunt my dreams

Baby has excellent (if inappropriate) taste in almost true autobiographies

Wednesday:

Morning trains

That blur is Evan doing warm-up at gymnastics to The Water Buffalo Song

He thinks the lobsters at the grocery store = the aquarium

Organized pantry. I found 7 cans of diced tomatoes and 6 of chickpeas. Time for....tomato hummus?

Thursday:

Adorable baby in an amazing hat

Ignoring my kids, pretending I'm doing sit ups, really taking photos of myself #mommyblogger

My extremely loud singing did not prevent a car nap after 2 hours of hard playground playing

Weirdo and gross, but still cute. To me. Obviously I'm her mom.

Friday:

Oh no! Someone made a huge mess! Oh wait, it was me.

He's stealing my hummus and ignoring his PB&J. I like him.

NEVER LET GO, DOLLY. NEVER LET GO.

Saturday:

Skeptical child wonders why I can take pictures but not put on real clothes instead of a bathrobe

Sunbeam floor nap

Patio time is a good end to even a tough week

This week should be shorter – and hopefully less snotty – and my friends and I just picked a weekend for Kiawah Island 2012 which means I can start COUNTING THE DAYS. It also means I can’t cure my allergies with a giant bowl of ice cream because I used on my extra points on more important things. Like rum to wash down my allergy pills.

Did you take any camera phone photos this week? Link up with one or lots using the linky below and grab the code (so it shows on your blog too!) over at Amy’s . It’s really fun!
