2017. Every day. (04.16.17)

 I love taking pictures, the every day, the mundane, the big, the fun, the celebrating, even the hard. Images I want to remember.  So, this year, I’m documenting my everyday. A photo a day for my FB/IG and then writing the stories of each on my blog weekly. 
So, welcome to (April) 2017!

I mentioned at the end of last week’s post, Sunday’s coming.
Easter Sunday.
He is risen. He is risen indeed.
Had a great day with family and most grateful for the resurrection of Christ and eternal hope I have in Him.  I took a break in the midst of paper research to letter this reminder of the day.

Monday I took Auggie for a long walk, and then was lazy. He was persistent wanting me to get up and play fetch. 🙂

I never posted about my Easter decorations. Really, I guess they are Spring decorations. I found these simple bunnies at TJ Maxx, in 3 various sizes and loved them! They were I believe $3.99, $4.99 and $5.99 for the large one. I changed out their bows and even though Easter has passed, I’m leaving them out for a while longer.

Since I didn’t do a Spring decorating post, here’s the rest of what’s out around my house.

This is the medium bunny.

Little patchwork towel in my kitchen.

And, the deer plates have been switched out for spring bird plates on my dining “hutch”.

All week at work I was in final prep mode for our When I Grow Up Career Expo, which included a lot of watching the weather.  We started the week with 60% scattered thunderstorms for Saturday, and didn’t have a drop of rain during the Expo!!  So grateful. To see fun from the Expo, search the #WhenIGrowUpExpo on Twitter!

And, after work looked a lot like this.  All. the. paper. writing. 3 more to go. I stayed up late to finish this paper and be done with it!

And, in case you wonder what under the table looks like…
pretty much like a toddler’s play area. 🙂  #allthefavorites

So, my new favorite thing on my iPhone is portrait mode. Apparently this is only on 7Plus.  But, it is amazing. I took lots of pictures of the littles last weekend and am practicing on various shots. I wish I knew how to use a “real” camera and manual setting, but it’s just not in my capacity right now, maybe one day.  For now, iPhone portrait is my go-to.  Also, I’ve written before about folding clothes, washcloths always get folded in same direction and stacked like this in my cabinet. I love a good stack of freshly folded clothes. This photo will be on a friend’s website soon for her new wash and fold service. Stay tuned…

Was a pretty evening outside as we set up for the Expo. Booth space ready for 95ish vendor/exhibitors to showcase career opportunities to HISD students, from elementary through high school. #teamwork

We had no rain on Saturday, but we did get a cold front and it was 60-ish on a patio for dinner Saturday night with one of my besties. (Which I realize isn’t cold to large percentage of the country, but here, when it’s been 90’s, it was pretty chilly!!!) Stacy’s mom recently passed away and in the midst of such heartbreak, there’s also lots of great things happening for her! We tried out a new restaurant, Presidio, and it was delicious! Dinner on a patio is my favorite! A flannel and sweater in late April? Also a favorite!

Our Superintendent of Schools came out to the Expo on Saturday, grateful to have his support for our event!
