For FHE last week Drew and I took apart our Spooky Halloween Tree and transformed it into a Thanksgiving Tree. I cut out like a bazillion construction paper leaves (have I ever mentioned my deep and abiding love for construction paper?) and we wrote what we are grateful for on them. We wrote on the fronts and backs so each leaf has something treasured by both of us on it. I have to say it was really special to see all the things Mr. Blimes thought to write about being thankful for... it really helped me see him in an all new way (didn't think that was still possible after all this time) He is so easy to love.
Also, last week brought with it Mable's least favorite time of the month...bath time...she always gets so shivery and sad. As soon as I take her collar off she starts running for the nearest hiding place...this time she picked behind the bedroom door...we found her, had a good laugh, but the bath was completely necessary so it had to be done. The only redeeming part of her bath time is the end... Drew is always the one to bring the rescuing towel and scoop her up into the warmth of his arms... she LOVES this part... and even though he tries to act all manly and macho I think he secretly does too!
On Thursday of last week, I was coming to the end of my rope...(the kitchen business is SUPER slow right now and there's been talk of cutting costs at Cabinets by LeMay...ME being the costs) Anyway, I needed a day off to refuel and calm my crazies...so Drew decided to play hooky and spend a relaxing day off with me... just what the Dr. ordered! He is always so good at getting my feet back on the ground when I'm starting to lift off into crazy-land!!!
Friday was the 6th anniversary of Mr. Blimes and my first date! We spent that fated evening long ago at the Olive Garden...so every year (with the exception of the two he spent away on his mission) we go back to the Olive Garden on November 7th... It was a great dinner and we had a good time reminiscing about memories past and talking about the exciting things in our future... I love you Boobie! These past 6 years have been worth the fact that I had to drive us on our first date and pay for dinner...hee hee! I wouldn't trade our memories for anything.
K, now for the last of last weeks highlights...this post makes my life seem so busy and sparkly!!! It isn't. lol But I do love all things sparkly just FYI... so I got a little crafty over the weekend and thought I'd share... here's the card I made Mr. Blimes for our anniversary... a bird silhouette to go on our mantle... and the snowman that YOU can make also if you come to the FABULOUS annual RS Christmas Party!!! December 6 at 10am...
PS in case it isn't obvious I am REALLY starting to have a thing for birds... they're just so free and beautiful...also they're light enough to fly and having recently gained 20lbs I may just be wishful thinking!!!
all my love,
