Tackle it Tuesday, but really Wednesday

Ok, so I can't post what I tackled yesterday because it is a surprise for someone. But don't worry, once the surprise is over, I'll share. So I'll share what I tackled tonight instead.

Carl has been traveling a LOT, and there is no end in site for awhile. I've decided to do something I should have done a long time ago, have two of my nieces over. Now, while I say I should have done it...I really didn't have a chance. They are two of the busiest 11 and 13 year old girls I know. But sports and school are out for the summer, so I am grabbing some quality time!

So tonight I had a few things to get done. I wanted to get the house all clean, because I won't be home tomorrow night. So I deep cleaned the hardwood floors and the downstairs half bath. Then I put together four options for them to choose from. Tomorrow, I will ask them to pick one and then once they do, I can narrow down exactly what we'll do/make.

Out on the town
Dinner: We go out to dinner- they pick restaurant
Activity: Bowling
Evening: Bake something for breakfast

An Evening In
Dinner: We make dinner together- their choice
Activity: A night of baking goodies
Evening: Movie of their choice and card/board games

A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That
Dinner: Go out to dinner: they pick restaurant
Activity: Baking goodies
Evening: Movie and Wii Playing

Girly Girl Night
Dinner: I'd make a fancy dinner for them- use the dining room and all :)
Activity: Go get pedicures
Evening: Watch chick flicks and eat popcorn

Then Saturday morning, we have my sister's shower. Since taking a picture of clean floors isn't all that exciting, I'll share the baby invite I made for her shower. I changed some of the information to keep her privacy. The shower is baseball themed as they both love the sport. It looks better than this printed...obviously...but you get the idea.


  1. I love that idea! So much better that cutesy storks/bunnies/pastel crap that usually goes along with babies. If I ever get knocked up I want you to design my shower invites!
