looks like we made it…


well, we made it through another week of summer.

at first, the thought of having this boy home all the time sounded like fun.

which, it was… for a while.

and then it just became a lot of work.

he is used to routine and there’s not as much routine in the summer months.

not to mention entertaining a 4 year old all the time is exhausting. : )

(that’s why god made them cute though, right? just look at that sweet pookie face.)


anyway, i knew we needed a little help so,

i made this chart.

i got the idea from my sister.

she said that they used something like it in her daughter’s 1st grade class and that it works wonders.

i thought we could give it a try

and it’s been fantastic for jones!

you start the day on green and you move up and down depending on behavior.

if he helps out around the house or does anything extra good he moves up a color.

and, if he acts up the clothes pin moves down and he misses out on something special.

(usually an afternoon show or something)


i stopped by the library the other day and grabbed p-dub’s book.

i needed a pick me up. : )

i’ve been meaning to read it for months.

i finished it and i loved it!

it is so funny, and  she seems like such a great wife and mom.

we’re best friends.

she doesn’t know it yet, though.


i love getting organized and i wanted a small board for our fridge to write meals on,

so that way i can remember what to make during the week.

i found this bad boy at target for $3.00!


every summer i try to pick up fall and winter clothes for the kids.

i love a good clearance rack.

 i found most of this stuff for a couple bucks at gymboree and crazy 8!


oh, yeah, speaking of cheap finds, that reminds me…

i also found some pillow covers at hobby lobby for $3.00 each!

they were on sale 50% off.

i just might be the cheapest person alive… ever.

i’m not alone here, right?

you’re frugal, too, right?

oh, never mind.


have a great weekend!
