2013 Blue Jeans Week 6

Man, what a week.  Highs?  Getting taxes done, making valentine's box, and spirit week at school which is always fun.  Lows?  Our fridge died.  I was not planning on buying a fridge anytime soon (for years actually), but I was left with no choice this week.  Replacing all our appliances was not on our radar this year, but so far we have done one a month for 2013.  I hope that trend stops now.  Here is a look at our week. . .

Sunday:  Enjoying the quiet evening.  Man, I love my little boy who really isn't so little anymore, but still little enough that he likes to cuddle with mom.  I love that!

Monday:  Making our family Valentine box tonight.  It is a tradition we have every year.  More about that in my previous post.

Tuesday:  I got the taxes all done today.  I have done them myself every year we have been married, and the last 10 years or so have been so super easy with the help of the free taxact software.  It is great!  

Wednesday:  Spirit week at school so the kids had different dress-up days this week.  Hat day is always a fun one :)

Thursday:  Our family Valentine's box all done and waiting for treasures to be put inside.

Friday:  Our 7 year old fridge that died and was not repairable (or was for about the same price as a new fridge, so we just got a new fridge), ugh.  Man, they sure don't make things like they used to.  Putting that tax refund money right to work :)

Saturday:  My older two girls were in a church skit night tonight.  Miss A was the nerd, and Miss O the ditch digger with the shovel :)  Fun times.

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!  Happy Valentine's Day!

  1. What a fun week! The Valentine's box came out great!

  2. ACK! What appliance did you replace last month? We're in for it this year too..I can feel it. Let's see a pic of the NEW one!

    Love Mr. J's snuggle face. What a cutie pie. My boys are as big as I am now and they still snuggle :) I love it.

  3. What a fun tradtition to make a Valetine's Box each year.
    I ♥ that you included pictures of yourself.
    I need to be better about doing that. :)

  4. I love it when my boys snuggle. I've been noticing it getting less and less and that breaks my heart. That Valentine's Box looks like so much fun!

  5. Such a sweet first shot. We had to replace a fridge recently too but its our backup fridge in the garage that we have had for 18 years! Hope the next one lasts just as long. I could not believe how much they cost now even for the simple ones--yikes! What a great Valentine's box! Have fun opening everything inside tomorrow. Such a great idea.

  6. Love that first shot- what a sweet moment!! Sorry to hear about the fridge- that is always a bummer when you had other plans for those funds.
