friday recap #2

friday recap

Again this week, I am linking up with  jeannett to share glimpses of the life behind the blog for my Friday recap ! Here is the last 5 days via Instagram:

I had MOPS this week and created by the far my favorite craft to date. We made hanging wall vases with mason jars. I painted my boards to match the inside of my kitchen cabinet. I hung one on the cabinet above the sink and one on the opposite wall.

I made two loaves of banana bread last week. One glazed with a vanilla bean and the other reese’s pieces chip glaze. Yum.

Monday kicked off teacher appreciation week. I was a not as good at it as last year. But we did send a few gifts. the first being a candy gram. The rest of the week we used fun printables from pinterest, baked cookies, and sent snacks.

Last, but definitely not least. my new book! EEEK The nesting place, written by one of my favorite bloggers,Myquillyn. and because I love hashtags, follow the books: #idhtbptbb

My husband bought me this book for an anniversary present. We celebrated 9 years on Wednesday! I wrote him a super sappy card, and gave him a framed picture of me. It was from our previous anniversary when we visited a local sculpture park. Let’s just say, I didn’t care for the spider! See for yourself. And yes that is the pic I had framed for him!

I’d really love to have YOU start joining me each Friday to recap your week.
Your recap could be instgram photos, 5 things you did, wanted to do, read, liked, or favorited. It just has to be a end to your week.

    • add a button to your side bar ( optional you can find it under the grab buttons tab above my picture on the right)
    • that’s it. I look forward to seeing your posts every friday.
