I haven’t had much motivation to blog this week, so I haven’t organized anything for this post. It is literally going to be a bunch of randomness that pops into my head as I type. No telling what’s going to come out! Haha.
O N E – Swimming Lessons
Jacob is on his fourth day of swimming lessons today and things are going so much better than I could have ever expected. He is already jumping off of the diving board (which is a big fancy rock at his swim instructor’s big fancy private pool) and swimming to the side with a little bit of assistance. He has been crying a little bit after big traumatic events, but he is recovering very quickly. When he left yesterday, he and Brian called me at work and when I asked him how it was he said, “I cried a lot but I did everything they asked me to.” Oh, I just love this boy. One week down, one to go!
T W O – Partnership with JORD
I’m excited to announce that I am continuing my partnership with JORD and I will be working with them more in the future. You may remember that I hosted a giveaway a couple of months ago, and I am still head over heels with the watch that I received from them. So, if you are ever in the market for a watch or you are looking for a unique birthday, anniversary, or Christmas gift, look no further than JORD and Lindsay's Sweet World!
T H R E E – Jacob’s Bedroom Refresh
Things are going very well in Jacob’s bedroom… we got it painted, we got his full-size bed put together, I got the entire room cleaned out and I purged a bunch of stuff, and I have started the decoration process. The gallery wall is coming along nicely, but there are several things that I still need to tweak… like painting a couple of the frames and filling the frames with art.
I did have one minor mishap, though. I bought a cheap lamp at Walmart and a can of red spray paint to paint it myself since I couldn’t find a suitable red lamp. However, when spraying it the night before last, the wind blew and moved the paper that I had wrapped around the cord to keep it protected from the paint and the lamp cord and plug prongs got sprayed with paint. Since the prongs got sprayed, I’m terrified that it could cause a fire if I plug it in the wall since spray paint is flammable. Does anyone know if this is true?? I have googled the crap out of it and I can’t seem to find any answers. I hate to throw out a brand new lamp, but if there’s any remote chance for danger, then I can guarantee you I won’t be risking it. I’ll be spending another $10 before I dare risk my baby’s safety.
F O U R – Blogging Slump
Does anyone else feel like they’re in a blogging slump? This whole week I haven’t felt very inspired to post. I even scrapped my original post idea for this past Thursday because I just didn’t feel like editing the pictures. I think it’s mostly because I have so much other stuff going on with Jacob’s bedroom makeover, his impending birthday, and the July 4th holiday. I’ve also noticed that my page views have dropped a bit, so I’m thinking that others are just not blogging/reading blogs as much right now either… maybe because it’s summertime and everyone is out and about and enjoying it? Who knows. Anyway, I’m not worried about it. Blogging is definitely my passion so I know that it’s just a phase. I won’t be going anywhere and I appreciate all of you who still read daily. :o)
F I V E – Blogger Exchange
As I mentioned last week, I was part of a blogger exchange group and I recently received my favorite things gifts from the two other girls. I love them both so much! It’s like the girls both read my mind. We will all be posting about it soon and I can’t wait to share with you my favorite things that I gifted!
