What did I make this week? Plus an Announcement!

What did I craft or cook up this week? Nothing. Absolutely NADA. Unless you count turkey sandwiches, but I didn’t take photos so I’m not sure that counts.

It’s ok though. It’s been one of those weeks. I’m working 6 days in a row, and feeling worn out to the max. BUT there are some good things happening.

Lil’ J is OBSESSED with buses. She yells and points every time we pass one like she’s trying to catch it. We’ve taken the bus to the park three times now and she asks about them daily. I have tons of pictures I need to share and blog about this cheap fun idea but until then, here’s a few of our most recent trip taking a bus to a concert.

The concert we were riding to see? Boyz II Men! Saturday night we had VIP clearance at the Austin Urban Music Festival. I was literally a couple of feet away from touching Shawn, my longest-lasting crush. I told Lil’ J to waive at him. She was watching the whole thing from my backpack carrier. More on this later!

Getting a look for herself.

Another positive? I picked up the keys to our new place yesterday. I still haven’t packed a single box but we have a month of overlap so I’m not exactly freaking out yet.

I have a strange impulse to collect as many boxes as I can, before packing any. *shrug*

And finally, for the announcement…

I hinted to an exciting project I’ve been working on for months, long ago. Today it launched on Parenting.com and it’s sponsored by Hallmark. I haven’t been doing my 365 Love Letters on this here blog because I’ve been working on capturing 365 Moments there. I’m so excited and I hope you’ll follow along and even add your own photos capturing special moments in your family’s life. One could even be published in Parenting Magazine! I’m crossing my fingers I’ll get to see Lil’ J in there one of these days.

I imagine a lot of photos coming up will be of moving boxes. OY!

Just because I didn’t make anything crafty doesn’t mean I don’t want to see your domestic skills. Link up and share!
