The start of built in bookshelves. There will be wood on the back and trim on the front and shelves inside. The husband is doing it himself so it’s a slow process – when does he have time to do this – but they will be nice when done.
Swimming lessons. Every Monday, every Wednesday. Not my favorite place to be but I can see the progress in their swimming skills! I’m hopeful we will have two independent swimmers this summer. Wishful thinking?

My husband looked at me like I was crazy when I came home with a (mini) watermelon and cantaloupe. I was craving this simple summer fruit salad though and I told him not to argue with the pregnant lady. All you do is chop the melons up and add a tiny bit of honey, some fresh squeezed lime juice, and cut up some fresh mint. It is delightful.
Why eat out when you can make salads like this at home? Arugula Hazelnut Salad with Fig Balsamic – was seriously so amazing.
Dinner in the car from Bread & Cup. In the car. We were looking to try somewhere new and it was the last day of the sale on Tom’s. We were taking Cora to get her shoes so we were downtown. The husband thought this restaurant was kid friendly. After we got there we didn’t feel comfortable having the kids eat there – maybe for lunch? So we got two pizzas to go and ate in the car.
My new bag came and I love it.
