Making Every Minute Count

It's been a super busy week around our house.
I had to work a lot of hours so there hasn't been a lot of time to spare
 so I tried to make every minute count.

I needed a new laptop so this little gem below came home with me.
It was a great price on sale at WalMart.  Love it!  

It's the perfect size and color for our spare room where I like
to read when I'm home alone.

We have a little garden shed out back that I love to sit by and just enjoy a little quiet time occasionally.  We added the swing and flower boxes a few years ago and sits beside
a huge old tree.  I could sit there for hours and watch the kids play.

We picked up a few extra chairs since everyone wants to spend so much time outside.

The king of the house is learning to swim which is super exciting!

I love to bike ride with the kids but my bike was getting pretty old so we decided
mom needed a new and updated ride.  I think the kids were just embarrassed by
my old one because they really pushed me to buy this one.  It rides wonderfully!

And we managed to do a little bit of antique browsing which I throughly enjoy.

Well, I guess it's time for me to go to bed now.  It's getting late and I have to get up
at 4:30 in the morning.  I really hate my alarm clock, lol.  

Have a safe and wonderful 4th of July weekend.
