the rules: you must take 10 pictures of the following things right away without straightening or cleaning (that's the part that worried me). then you tag 5 others.
i was a bit concerned about the state of at least 6 of these things, however, as i walked around the house snapping shots i was repeating in my head, "thank you, mitch! thank you, mitch! i love you!" you see, on memorial day we woke up (very late in the morning, almost the afternoon because of our 2 am game night) and mitch said, "i think we should have the girls help clean the house and teach them the value of working together." i was like, "uhh, ok?" not my idea od a fun day off, but today, i praise him for his foresight!
1. the fridge
you'll notice that it is back in it's rightful position atop the freshly laid tile by aforementioned, wonderful husband. notice all the left overs? love the leftover because it means i don't have to cook tonight!
2. your closet
3. the kitchen sink
you'll notice that i actually got around to doing that huge pile of dishes from my previous post! boy that felt good!
pristine! thanks to lala's toilet cleaning on monday. also, thank you to lala, she actually flushed the last time she used the toilet so there are no unseemly "treats". she has a hard time remembering to do that, but at least she washes her hands!
5. your favorite shoes
my favorites are plain black flip flops, but i left mine at the gym awhile back and just haven't replaced them. so, these are my current favorites until i make it to the store again.
6. favorite room
and from the state of our bonus room, you can tell it is everyone's favorite room. i SO wanted to put things away before taking this picture, but i restrained myself. just keeping it real!
and during the cold winters here in the northwest we L.O.V.E. our wood burning stove in the bonus room! so toasty! one other reason i love this room: mitch added it on to our house a year after we moved in! it was a great addition seeing as if we are not eating or sleeping, we are in the bonus room, although sometimes we even eat and sleep in there too!
7. what your kids are doing right now
nani and lala are climbing the muddy hill (it just stopped raining minutes ago) in our front yard with their friends alexis and brandon.
and this cute little thing...
is thankfully sleeping behind this door! and if you think i am going to go in to take her picture and risk waking her up, you are crazy!
8. laundry pile
this is the pile that needs a foldin'
9. self portrait
10. dream vacation
castawy island, fiji. of course, we would scuba dive and we would leave our kids with tutu lady!
