Every year for the past 5 years or so, we have participated in Cow Appreciation Day. How can you say no to free chicken? I actually have costumes that stay in the closet year round that we re-use every year. It takes little effort and gives us a night out that we don’t have to pay for.
In the spirit of being transparent with you, this was not the best Cow Appreciation night we’ve ever had. For some reason, both Austin and I ended up being pretty stressed out. It was really loud in the restaurant, so I am sure that had something to do with it.
I know we all managed to smile in this shot for the most part, but my kids were having meltdowns, too. The middle child was very upset that we couldn’t find his cow hat. Who knows why my youngest put on a pouty face, but he did. Not everything in life goes like you hope.
The other major thing that happened this week, is I helped a friend get her house straight for moving. That was a bittersweet time with her.
She had a lot of things she felt that she couldn’t take with her. We made donation piles, for sale piles, keep piles, and for Keelie piles. I walked away with some precious gifts from her and had a chance to get these new pieces of art on the wall this week.
Here are some pictures of the rooms of my home that had additions.
She gave me the mirror on the wall and a few things to put on my mantel.
