Today we went to the garden center & picked up flats of flowers & flower baskets for the yard. I keep planters by the front & garage doors & then hang some colorful baskets around the patio. This is my favorite--the colors are all so pretty mixed together!

Our town has a Memorial Day parade & we go to watch Marissa march with her Brownie troop. The kids pass out candy & feel important. Marissa's towards the middle with white pants. It was nice & warm but not hot--perfect parade weather!

Awhile back I found that I had a lot of those acrylic box frames. Not my style anymore but I thought they'd be ok for the laundry room since I'm the only person that really goes in there. At some point I had the idea to glue them all together in a collage of sorts and now they are the 1st thing you see when you walk in the room---good to distract your eyes from the mountain of laundry!

Today at Gianna's pre-school her 2 friends (they're twins) had a birthday party & all the kids got a fun balloon sculpture to bring home. She loves her rainbow!
Thurs. May 28 #148Word of the day--"DE-CLUTTER". I felt like every room had some sort of clutter in it & I had enough! I tore apart the mess in my laundry room & all this stuff now has a new home other than my laundry room!!

My neat & tidy space in my recently de-cluttered laundry room! Still a few things that need to be put away but NOTHING like the craziness it was! I'm happy now!

This year Marissa chose to have her birthday party at a bowling alley. Slightly strange considering she's never been bowling before, but that's what she wanted & it seemed like a good idea to me too. The kids all had so much fun! Some of the kids weren't bad at it either! At the end Marissa got a bowling pin signed by all her friends which she treasures!
