Ten on Ten: Weekend Review

It's the tenth of the month again.  Time to capture the beauty in every day life with ten photos per day on the tenth of the month.

My morning started out just like everyone else's.  An hour off...  Hate losing that hour of sleep.

But the beauty of it was that baby girl slept a little bit later so I got to catch up on my Bible reading.  Yep, I'm working through reading the Bible in One Year and I am ten days behind...  

We've only ever stopped twice at Dunkin Dounuts on the way to church.  It's not a normal thing, but I certainly do enjoy the treat!

Church.  Chris preached about "Promises Made, Promises Kept" from Galatians 

I had been wanting to get my nails done for awhile so I ran out after lunch for a quick mani/pedi.  Ahh, love being pampered :)

Took the dog and the baby outside to get some energy out of everyone!

Ugh, y'all I don't sew.  I've sewed probably two things in my life.  I really want to learn how to sew, but I haven't made enough time to practice.  I've made these burp cloths a couple times that I am very proud of, but that's about it.  Anyhow, I need to sew some new velcro tabs on our size small diapers.  Its the only goal I have left to complete before the new baby.  (There is a good reason I recommend the bumGenius One Size snap diapers, but I won't bore you with all that now.  If you're interested in cloth diapering I'd love to tell you more)  I spent Saturday evening trying to rig up the sewing machine to sew on the new tabs.  Several hours  and (I admit a few choice words) later I finished only two.  I wish you could see how awful it looks too...  It really is supposed to be easy, but it wasn't for me- a novice sewer.  Sunday afternoon I packed up that sewing machine and decided it would be worth my time, money, and sanity to pay someone else to do it.

I really would like to be better about resting on the Sabbath and not doing chores or housework.  But I did wash diapers today.  Partly because I'm thinking I might go into labor at any time so I'm wanting things to be "taken care of" at home.  I know, not a good excuse. 

Aubra typically comes over for dinner Sunday evening and Phoebe LOVES Aubra.  Really, she cries when Aubra leaves....  She doesn't cry when I leave.

Hope you had a good weekend!

And oh yeah, if you missed my letters on Friday, just know that Baby Bowen didn't cooperate with my plans...

  1. Lovely pictures, and what a great way to share your day. Your nails look wonderful (as opposed to mine)! Popping over from the Monday Mingling blog hop, and I'm a new GFC follower. Have a great week.

  2. Love your manicure, I need to get one myself. Stopping by from the blog hop.

  3. I just found out that we are getting a Dunkin' Donuts. CAN'T WAIT.

  4. If you don't already have someone doing the sewing, I bet Frances could take care of it for you ... she seems to be a pro. If not Frances, Calli might do it.
