Catch Up

I feel like I need to write a "catch up" blog, but when I sat down to do so I realized that there's really not much to catch up on! haha. We have had some really low key weekends lately (especially with the cold weather)! In fact, I think this is the first year that Brice and I have stayed home and watched the Super Bowl by ourselves...I was asleep before half time! It's nice to not really have much to do, but I'm kind of ready for Spring to get here so we can start doing things outside again. Winter is nice for a while, but it can also be kind of depressing.

Friday night I went to a girl's night out with a few girls I work with. We went to Pottery Daze and had the best time!! I made a plate to go in our kitchen, I'm afraid it's not going to be as cute as the dog bowl I made though. We shall see.

In other news, Brice and I have decided to take our second cruise!! We are so excited about it and can't wait to get away. We will be going on a 7 day Norwegian cruise over spring break to the Carribean (Belize, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, and Progresso). I can't wait to see those pretty blue waters again!!!

Pottery Daze and 100's Day!

Before Christmas I went to Pottery Daze with a couple of friends and had the best time! I was so nervous when I got there because it was just a little overwhelming, and I'm really not the most creative person in the world. Plus, I'm such a perfectionist that I almost didn't even want to attempt anything because I was worried it wouldn't turn out cute. But, I finally settled on making a dog bowl for Sydney and Lana. Anyway, I just went to pick it up yesterday and I have to admit I was pretty impressed with myself!! I am so pleased with the way it turned out. Here are a few pictures:

And then onto 100's Day...last Tuesday we celebrated the 100th day of school!! I don't remember this being a big celebration when I was in school, but let me tell it's BIG to kids today (or at our school anyway). All of my kids made 100's Day projects where they made collections of 100 things. I wish I had taken pictures of their projects because they were all so good!! We had a collection of 100 lizards, 100 Disney stickers, 100 green pom poms in the shape of a frog, 100 pecans with actual bark made into a pecan tree and so many more that I can't think of right now! Here is a fun picture of all of my kids with their 100's Day hats and necklaces.

By the way, can you believe it's already February?! Happy Friday!
