June Fly on the Wall

Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 14 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.

Summer vacation started for my oldest.  I gave her one week to 'relax'.  (Like a 9-year olds life is so tough.)  ;)  But day one she said she was bored.  Day two she whined that she was hungry, all stinkin' day!  Day three she pressed her face to the bathroom door and asked when lunch was going to be ready.  So by day four I sat her down next to my desk and we made a list of food and activities and a not so subtle reminder to NEVER bug me in the bathroom again.   
*I made a tab on my blog with the chore chart and other Moore Organized information.  ;) 

A few weeks ago the husband and I got our first iPhones.  We've been happy BlackBerry users for nearly 3-years but when the husband's started to act up we checked to see what our upgrade options were. Well, the BB upgrade was $19.99 and the iPhone was only $.99.  We looked at everything else but we couldn't beat the price.  So we did it, we joined the cult.  
*But I'm not selling my gas guzzling SUV or 4X4 truck.  Just know that now people!!  ;)

His and her phones.  ;)  

Then I joined Instagram because my bestie said so.
And then her super nerdy husband made me a new mug button for my blog.  (It's great having friends who know how to do stuff.) 

It's been awhile since I made anything for our Etsy shop so I'm trying to make a few pieces each week.  I'm already behind schedule, but stuff is getting made.  Really... I have proof.  ;)  

One of the necklaces and earring sets I made this past month for our Etsy shop. 
I've been making these crocheted necklaces for several years now and each one is unique.  Which is why I keep making them.  It's fun to see them come together.

 So the littlest... she likes bugs.  All of them.  She also likes to show them to me.  In this collection are 3 doodle bugs.  "This one is slow, this one is fast, and this one is dead."  My girl is weird.  ;)

Mercy and her friends.
This past weekend was Father's Day... just in case you didn't know that.  ;)  I've been blessed with a great dad of my own and a great dad for my kids.  I'm a lucky girl. 

This is my guy with our kids.  :)

...and this is my dad during the Navy years. 

 ...also, I turn 40 on July 1st.  I may or may not get a wrist tattoo.  If I did it would be my first.  If I didn't it wouldn't surprise anyone.  So yeah, I'm still thinking about it.  BUT if I do, it will probably be something like this.  I mean... it has to mean something right?
We're a musical family, so treble... me, bass clef... Tommy, and the notes the kids.  The husband wants it to make a melody.  Always gettin' in my business.  ;)  

And I'm no artist so I'll probably have Justice draw the final one.  ;)

Oh and I did something bad and then something great to my hair... midlife crisis?  Who knows, but you can read it here:  Never Drink and Dye!

    I think that would be a beautiful tattoo. ;)

  2. Wow I'd take the Iphone too if it were only 99 cents!

    I like the music as a tattoo idea! Happy birthday!

    1. Thank you. :) Yep, cheap is the only way to go. HA!

  3. Happy Birthday!

    Your crocheted necklace is just beautiful. I wish I were artistic but unfortunately most artistic endeavors end in disaster.

    1. I'm not artsy, this is just easy. For real. ;)

  4. That necklace is gorgeous!
    The wrist tattoo sounds painful...awesome, but painful.

    1. It's why I'm hesitant. I'm not a fan of pain. :/

  5. I love sentimental tattoos. I'm too much of a wimp, but what a great 40th birthday present! I love your little girls "three bug" statement. So cute.
    Welcome to the iphone world. I'm addicted.

  6. I just got an iphone too.
    I have no clue what I'm doing with it just yet.
    The jewelry you make is just incredible! I can imagine it must be really tough but fun to create. Nothing is better than a one of a kind piece of art to wear.

  7. thank you for sharing. I love beading myself.

  8. Love the tattoo idea. Go for it, but be forewarned, those suckers are addictive.

    And Happy Early Birthday! You don't look anywhere CLOSE to 40!! Gorgeous Dahling!

  10. Hello! I hopped over from Delectably Dawn's "30 Day Blog Challenge" Blog Hop. I love the idea of this post: Sharing a glimpse into the home. I may just borrow the idea for one of my own posts, one day. Also, having a ton of tattoos myself - a friendly suggestion: Get it where you can cover it up if you want to (an ankle or foot, perhaps?) It makes it easier when you have to go somewhere formal and don't necessarily want to share all your artwork.

    I'm following through google friend connect, now!

    All the best,
    Andrea H. from Mom Imperfect.


Thanks for takin' the time to read my stuff. :)
