i have three weeks of summer before i head back to work.  one of those weeks i'll be visiting my family in missouri.  so i figure i have two weeks left to make my summer wishes come true.  here's the list of projects i started the summer with:

*finish my painting- a big painting i started has been sitting there for about a year waiting for me to take a day to finish it off

*paint the eiffel tower- and by that i mean, paint a sketchy black outline on a white background.  simple... easy...  hopefully.  after our trip to paris in the spring i've been longing for a good picture.

*make throw pillows for the new bench- done!  i always like to put things on my list that i already did to make me feel better.

*cook some new recipes- i haven't had time to cook in ages and i'm ready for some new stuff.  so far i made my mom's chile verde for the first time and some crock pot mac and cheese.  yum.

*paint the bedroom-

*make a paper wreath- check!   :)

*create my oasis on the new patio- plants, wind chimes, etc.

*make a baby carrier wrap and some baby blankets for my newly pregnant friend, sarah.

*finish these books:

wish me luck!


  1. Ooh, I like the second to last one! Yippee! Also, I read Choice Words last year (didn't love it) and I am reading The Help right now (loving it).

    Glad to see you are getting your list done. It feels so good! And I can't wait to see your painting once it is finished.

  2. Wow, that is quite a list. I guess you could leave out visiting your family... to which we would weep and mope the rest of the Summer!

    Nice blog, daughter!

    Love, Dad

  3. I want to read Choice Words and The Help as well!

  4. Boy, that's a mighty ambitious list daughter!
    Just don't let it get to you if you don't get it all accomplished before you come here. Is there anything you can bring here to work on?
