threesixfive, week 7

happy valentines week! i realized on monday that i never put my valentines decorations out, and at that point i was over it. no heart tree or love birds on my mantle this year.
we've had lots of rain this week, which has been nice for the grass and all the lakes we have around here, but a bummer for anyone planning to do anything outside (us!!). we've been trying to get out and go hiking for a couple weeks. last week was too cold, and this week was too rainy. maybe next weekend we'll have a shot at at.
here are the pictures for week 7...

sunday
i love that my kids will eat a big plate of salad!






monday
heres that latch-hook rug ive been working on. i was trying to have it done by the first weekend of february, but its proved to be a much bigger project than i anticipated. its finally starting to look like a rug though. im not going to have enough tshirt strips to finish the whole thing, not that i wouldve; i think that would take me the rest of 2012!! but if i use what i have left, i can get half the mat done, and it will go perfectly in allens office. think orange!





tuesday
happy valentines! we never made a huge deal out of valentines day, and the last couple of years its been an excuse to do something fun together as a family. this year allen had this project for them to do (from micah 6:8). i'll post a picture of the finished product next week. when we were done with that we dipped our own chocolate covered fruit; the grapes are my favorite!!!






i couldnt pass up this picture of mojo with a little left-over chocolate on her face. :-)













wednesday


we met my parents for dinner, but got to the restaraunt early. they were able to entertain themselves pretty well while we waited, despite molly feeling kind of yucky this evening.






thursday
we're slowly giving our master suite a facelift. the bedroom is a work in progress, and i'm hoping to tackle the bathroom with some of our tax return (assuming we get one...). today we made a trip to hobby lobby and bought new knobs for our dressers and nightstands. they're all mismatched in shades of orange, turquoise, and brown.








friday


this is what allen surprised me with for valentines!! he made it!! i showed him something similar on pinterest awhile back and have been wanting to do one myself, but just havent got around to it. i was so proud of his craftiness....or handiness, rather. that sounds more manly.







saturday


today we, along with about 5 other families from the preschool department at our church, went to our local serving center to deliver some cans that had been collected by the youth group the weekend before for disciple now. we got a tour of the facility, then put a sticker on all the cans and boxes donated by our group that says 'Jesus loves you!' colby and molly had a great time, and it was a great opportunity to teach them about 'being the church'.












allens out of town this weekend speaking at a youth event, but will be back super late tonight. colby has a friend over right now, and the easy-bake oven made an appearance earlier to appease molly. its looking like a pizza and a movie kinda evening.


have a fantastic week!!

Loved the knobs on the drawers and the pinterest project was great. I have one I am planning to do this week with a silver tray...can't wait.

i would fall off my chair if my hubs ever made a craft for me...
it's soooo nice, too!

i didn't send anything to my college girl for valentine's day this year...she'll be home this weekend though.

A wonderful week of photos! That rug looks like a HUGE project in terms of time. Go girl! :)
That was really sweet of your hubby to make you a special V-day gift.
We didn't do anything special since Ivan worked hard all day at the lot, and was exhausted by the time he came home. We anticipate a year of not doing much and just focusing on building :)
I've got so many Pinterest boards and ideas... there aren't enough years to do/make/enjoy them all! But I can't stop pinning. And hoping I get to at least a few of them.
Have fun with the re-do on the bed and bath!

Great week! Love the rug, great way to re-purpose...

I am about to start a master bedroom make over...a daunting task. New bedding and I am looking for some yard sale pieces that I can rework for side tables and maybe a bench..lot's of decisions, makes my head hurt!
