InstaFriday #17

Thursday night 10:30 PM - As I am at home in my sweats, compyling this blog post, this is where Shane is:

Why am I not with him? Here is a recent facebook update to explain:

"Shane calls me excitedly - "Natalie, I was just handed two box seat tickets to the BSU vs BYU game!"

me - "Oh my gosh! That will be so fun! Do you think I'll be killed if I wear my BYU shirt?"

Shane - Oh. You wanted to come? I already invited Matt."

I guess that bros before hoes doesn't end at marriage.

So no, I'm not with him. He took Matt. 

And can I mention how annoyed I am that Shane choose to ignore his Alma mater and wear BSU gear? He says he likes both teams equally. Whatever. GO BYU!!!!!

I really can't complain since last Saturday I spent the entire afternoon at the spa as part of Shane's birthday gift to me. Massage, facial. Heaven. Then a mani pedi overlooking the Boise river while sipping sparkling pear juice. It was pretty much the best afternoon of all time.

Sparkle black polish just screams October to me.

I really needed that spa day after an entire week of the stomach flu going around my family. Poor little Collin got it the worse. He just laid in my bed miserable. I kind of loved the cuddle time though.

During this week of sick, Collin learned how to take photos of himself. Notice two when I'm still asleep. Then he woke me up to show me his new trick.

I got it last. 

I really wish my mommy lived closer at times like this. 

This lifesaver was the only piece of food I could stomach for 36 hours.

The kids picked me some cheery flowers.

My apologies to whichever neighbors yard these came from.

I got a pick me up when the sweetest little hair clip came from etsy shop leesaland
It's for Lydia, but I'm going to steal it.
 (Thank you Lisa, I love it!)

Shane and I totally rocked the elementary school carnival.

Snow cones and facepaint goes well with the weather that never seems to drop below 90.

I'm trying to be better with my meal planning so that I spend less.

Here's my menu for the week.

Sunday - 
Lentil soup with bread. Plum tart

Monday - Chicken and dumplings, roasted carrots, green salad

Tuesday - Spaghetti with homemade sauce, cut veggies, salad

Wednesday - Leftovers

Thursday - Broccoli soup with ham and rolls (at friend's house) - bring dessert

Friday - Grilled shrimp with broccoli and mashed potatoes

Saturday - Taco soup

Sunday - Eggplant Parmesan with mashed potatoes

Monday - midnight pasta

Tuesday - Grilled fish with steamed edamame and rice.

And of course, the potty training battle. 

I'm so over it. But Collin sure is cute in his efforts.

Lydia's best friend just moved to a farm house in the country. She loves it there. 

Do you think their farmer neighbor would mind if I snagged a couple pieces of corn? Probably. 

And lastly, I had the best hair day today! I followed this tutorial. The only difference was I used less hair product than recommended, though I used all the same brands. Just less of it. I wanted it to stay soft. I tried it with the amounts recommended and it was just too crunchy for me. I love it this way and it didn't even take too long. I think it will be my new "dress up" do. Now I just need some place to go.

Sure wish I was at the BYU game tonight.

Ok, enough, I'm over it.

Love the hair! I'm taking my daughter to Charlotte Fashion Week for the first time tonight and was trying to figure out what to do with my hair so I'm going to give this a try. Thanks for sharing the tutorial.

Hahaha, that's funny about the game, I got my husband three on deck circle seats at the Tigers game for a Father's Day present last year. Three seats. One for him, one for me, and one for teen.

He opened the gift and told me the two friends he was inviting. - __ - And I didn't get a spa day. ;)

Your hair looks great in the last pic!
