(I know I do a lot of these and not so much anything else, but that's mostly because I like to spend all my time with this little family!)
(p.s. I'm spending most of my social network time on Instagram and Twitter!They're the easiest to play around with on my phone. So if you want more from me, or want to see things first, I'd suggest you follow me! I usually follow back too.)
1.) I guess the first thing would be that right after I wrote my last post for the Pieces of Happy link-up we went out and bought a Wii U at the PX! I'd never played on one before, so it was pretty awesome. I love my hot pink controller! (Alex surprised me with it! And no one has to fight me for it, because they don't want it.... hah!)
After that I decided to celebrate our Mario victory by baking a Yoshi chicken pot pie.
2.) I started (trying) to teach the kiddo how to crochet. We've gotten so far as chains, so while she chains, I crochet little outfits for her stuffed animals to keep her motivated.
So she made the chain necklace and I made the dress from this pattern.
She has made two chain necklaces so far! I am so proud of her :) Going to try teaching her single crochet soon. I hope she's up for it!
3.) We play outside enough, but finally our apartment's pool opened up so we were able to have some fun in the sun and swim!
I got a horrible sunburn though because I put my sunblock on too hastily and forgot to re-apply it. Oh well, I will pay the consequences, but it won't stop me from going in again, especially now that we have these adorable floaties!
|We got matching rafts from Target|
5.) Finally, the last thing I have to mention is ALONE TIME! You don't really realize how much you valued it before (even though I spent the whole day, every day, alone before the kiddo came to visit) until it's GONE! But I have gotten enough of it this weekend to get me through the next week. (Even if it was just doing dishes while listening to Pandora radio, lol).
So what were your Pieces of Happy?
