Our Grand Prix cars have messed up my plans a little, I hope to catch up this weekend! Last night we got home a little late but I did my medicine cabinet anyway! Tonight I'm doing under the bathroom sinks (after awana). Wednesday nights are a late night for us normally and I don't want to push it.

Update! On day one I was supposed to do the fridge, yeah that didn't happen...but Keith and I did do the freezer, which sucked. And then the next day I started next to the entertainment center, and then fizzled out...but yesterday I finished that up, did all the taping of the painting project and some other odds and ends. Today when we got home from church and grocery shopping my dear husband helped me gut the fridge and then...he cleaned it. I married well. We then restocked it and I started the painting. The entire painting project including clean up only took about a hour. I think it looks pretty fabulous!

Well technically it's the beginning of day three! Keith and I gutted the freezer (supposed to be day 2) but have talked and will do the fridge and next to the fireplace tonight (and prep for painting). We took 4 bags of trash out from the freezer (and part of the pantry), cleaned the freezer and made a new freezer plan and I'm making a standard grocery list of things that should always be there to help me with quick low sodium meals. Some of my standards are frozen veggies (corn, peas, chopped spinach), chicken tenderloins, a couple easy prep meals from trader joes for really fast help and frozen fruits for smoothies. Felt good to purge and make a plan! And felt really good to work on it with Keith and power through it quickly. All in we spent less than 30 minutes on the project.

How do you get up a mountain when you're going with the crew from Arnette? Well since they don't have their own rig yet... you take one of the Oakley trucks. We loved it! we got pointed at, people gave us thumbs up and hang loose signs and the guy at the snowboard shop called out the rest of the staff to gawk at the rig... I'll admit it, it was fun.

The gulch that we zipped across in Makaoa, leads right to the ocean, such a beautiful sight! the bazillion colors of green, the bring orange flowers in the trees, just spectacular!
You want me to climb up WHAT? 2 at a time so you don't rock it off... um...
the first and easiest tower...cause it had stairs. LOTS of stairs!! this is easy??
This is actually US zipping down the line at an insane rate. I'm in HIT THE BLOCKS form and Keith is still rockin a starfish... starfish is SLOW DOWN, you spread your arms and legs and push your chest forward. I'm in landing form so I don't hit anyone with my legs and so that my trolley doesn't come back and wack me in the face after I hit the brake ;)
all of our trolleys and gear waiting for us! KNOW YOUR NUMBER was what we were DRILLED on.
this is going to be scattered, not in order and I just don't care! I mostly DON'T want to forget all of the amazing things we did/saw/experienced and scattered and picture descriptions will be an easy fun way for me to capture it all!

The LAYOUT! I think it actually came out pretty cute! some purchased, some handmade and all fun. I made the happy birthday mikayla banner with scrapbook paper, hand cut the lettering and hand tied all the pieces to each other. I also hand tied the cartoon to all of the bags and hand tied ribbons on all of the 125 lollipops, then I painted the styrfoam blocks and tied eyelet tagged tags to them to mark which flavor of lollipops. insane amounts of ribbon (thank goodness for sales at Michaels).

Mikayla's party work in progress!
The candy bar is just about done, I'm about 75% done with projects but I have some cutting still to do... the lollipop stands are done, Mikayla's M is done and the table cloth is done as well. I have a little bit of decoration left to do to the candy containers but we're doing great!
the lollipop stands (with tags) the giant M and the happy birthday Mikayla banner.
