this week in photos

poor blog. it's so neglected.
here is the week of may 21 to the 28th.

i need a way to relax. i need a way to just unwind and forget about things for a while. i quit smoking 4.5 years ago. it was my way to relax and let stress go. i would sit on the porch at night and think. i really did enjoy it. but i wanted to be healthy and well...smoking is just nasty and unhealthy. so i thought about a glass of wine each night. i don't drink beer, gross! so maybe wine will help to calm me and relax. maybe a glass while i sit on the porch while he puts liam to sleep? my father-in-law brought me two bottles to try. i have been wanting to try them but the last few days my sinuses have been really bad. maybe tonight.

on the 21st we watched joplin high school graduation. the President gave a speech. so incredible since he picks three schools a year to speak at and all are universities. i thought it was a wonderful speech full of hope. i also loved the superintedent's speech. what a great man. makes me want to move to joplin and put liam in that school district. i really don't want him going through pittsburg's schools. thinking frontenac will be the school of choice.

made this cake at work. came up with the title all by myself lol. and yes, i went back in and put a comma after peace.

we love going to paradise mall. it is an antique store. i found two things i remember having as a child. a holly hobby oven. you could actually make cakes and send them through to bake!!! and an evl knevell truck.

the dude sure does want to be a ball player. everytime we go into hibbets he has to put a ball hat on. he's ready to bat!

everyone was at my parents on sunday for a cookout. eric's family was in town so we had one huge family there! my great niece daisie came. she is suck a doll!!! liam enjoyed swinging with his cousins.

here are some instagram photos from the week:

this week in photos

yep, slacking again. just not in a writing mood. i guess it is because i have so much going on in my head that i can't get the words to come out. they just rotate and rotate and jumble up into a mess. one day i'll be able to clear them out.

i really enjoy decorating cakes at work. it is another way for me to be creative. while last week was pitt state graduation, we had a lot of orders. i did back up cakes for the case. a way to be creative and get paid...sweet!!!

there is nothing like opening at 5 gallon bucket of chocolate icing. oh the smell!!!!!

since liam loves to play in the water, we got him a water table. ohhh, he loves it!!!

i took some pictures of me and liam while waiting for eric to come out of mcdonald's. we had to go to the car because someone was done eating and was acting up. :) our phone has it to where you can turn the come backwards and it gets you without turning the phone. pretty cool!!!

and that football...he has to take that to daycare everyday. i think it is his security.

yesterday was mother's day. my 3rd mother's day. my favorite day! eric and liam got me this gorgeous plant!

we went out to my parents. i had eric get a picture of me and my mom and liam. mom is sitting all pretty while i am trying to get the dude to look at eric. here is the best one.

and now this week's photos via instagram.

 here he was trying to fix my broken shoe. haha

till next monday or the monday after that lol...hopefully sooner!
