last week was craft week....
i was back home from vaca and all by my lonesome at the shop
since br was gone, i had to find some way to entertain myself
 so i did this...

 i made 40 of these...
which may not seem like much, but holy cow... it took a lot more time than i was expecting.
 i dipped old invoice, scrap paper and catalogs in coffee
let them dry
cut them up into various petal shapes
hot glued them
and walla!
 a window filled with paper flowers!

since i had to drench around 250 pieces of paper with coffee
i had a little bit of waiting time in between.
while i was waiting, i had a spray paint party
 i painted lots of letters...

 and a frame.
after i painted the frame,
i screwed in 10 loops to the back side of the frame
then added wire across...
to make a sunglass display
{i've been wanting to do this project for a while and realized i finally had all the materials to do so!}
 so there you have it.... my first productive week of the year! go me!

precious moments

found here
love her paintings...

gritty hands

remember in arrested development when tobias gets hair implants and his implants begin to reject his body?  well that's what ak is doing to me. it's rejecting my life. it all started with my car...

for the last two months, on my days off i have planned to take my car in for a check up and to get my battery replaced and on every single one of my days off it has either a}snowed so much that i can not drive my car or b}been too cold that my car will not even start.  my poor, poor car has just about had it and can no longer handle this crazy ak weather.  this weekend it was dead for 4 whole days... after about 8 hours of charging the battery, i was able to get it started {thankfully!!}... crossing my fingers it will last through this terribly cold week!

not only has ak rejected my car, but it has begun rejecting my home.  this weekend, while my car was freezing to death, my house was also doing so and then my pipes froze.  booo.  nothing worse than literally being stuck at home with frozen pipes...

what will be next??  

i'm hoping ak begins to let down a little because as nice as it may sound to be in a warmer, more friendly state,  i can't leave juuust yet. :)  

ok, enough complaints... now for some snaps!

gluten and egg free {not exactly vegan} breakfast hash.... nom.nom.nom.

       biggest potato chip i have ever seen.  can you believe that humongous genetically modified potato chip made it allll they way to my mouth without even a wee bit of cracking??  i certainly can not. cream.
hooooly. mooooly.
it was so dang good.
picture this:
banana pudding ice cream
mixed with
chocolate peanut butter ice cream
mixed with
coffee ice cream
mixed with
heath bar crumbles.
heaven.  absolute heaven.
in the midst of the most bitter, cold weather... we are teased with beautiful blue skies and sparkly white trees.  one of my favorite things about ak. ♥ ♥ ♥

i got sick...

luckily, i was feeling mostly back to normal for sweet abby's birthday!

 birthday girl got to go on a birthday date with one of her besties! 
in the mean time, the gang and i went to adventure downtown.

 after downtown exploring came to an end,
kaylo, momma and i began craft project numero uno!
 {unfortunately i didn't take a before picture :(}

 apparently spray paint isn't handled well in the munson home... two bloody noses at one time!
and a sweet, tired pup.

 FINALLY, i get my very own birthday date, with the sweetest Abby of all!  Not always do we get to have these sort of dates, and when we do, they must be extra special!  Abby made out like a bandit, I made sure of it. 

 Craft project numero uno finished!!! 

 AND THEN we found ourselves celebrating birthday number TWO!
birthday boy. birthday boy. he's a he's a birthday boy.  birthday boy. birthday boy. birthday boy! birthday boy gets celebratory jack-in-the-box at midnight.... as every birthday boy should.
then birthday boy got to go to rockies diner, where they serve you on rollerskates!!!   {every birthday boy's dream}
