This was a great week! It was so busy and it seemed like we constantly had something going on, but I like that.
On Sunday, Ryan had a surprise birthday party for me at our house. I knew something was going on when he started cleaning like crazy and working in the yard, but it was still fun to wait and see what was going to happen! He had a chef (from the restaurant) cook dinner (homemade ravioli…my favorite), and some of our friends pitched in and brought delicious sides to go with it. It was a great night. My husband is pretty cool.
I made a fall wreath for our front door. There is a house in our neighborhood that has a decorated porch for Fall and it looks so good. We walk by there every morning and I get a little jealous that my porch doesn’t look that cute, so I decided to do something about it. This was the first step.
The past couple of days it’s been raining, so we’ve been forced to play indoors, which means Rose is making plenty of messes. Ryan asked me yesterday how many times I clean her room a day…I couldn’t answer. I like cleaning it though. I feel like each time I do it, I’m giving her a clean slate to start with. It’s like the episode of Dawson’s Creek when Pacey gives Joey a wall to paint because he loves her so much. I imagine Rose feels the same gratitude toward me that Joey felt toward Pacey. Hahahahha…just kidding.
