Even though Corbin decided to be awake, off and on, most of the night, Eric and I STILL got up and went biking together at 7AM this morning. We had to talk each other into it since we were so tired but we made it! See, Hempels are night people. We are ALWAYS up past midnight and lately, we stay up until 2AM. So being up... and moving... before 7AM is an accomplishment! We biked eight miles on an amazing bike path that's practically in our back yard. We've lived here over six years & never really used the bike paths so now we're all... HOW COOL IS THE BIKE PATH??
for a donut to go pick up the groceries for dinner.
The rest of my day was spent at home. We're getting ready for a couple of vacations which means there is laundry that needs to be done. However, I did ONE more thing that was "outside of the box." (if you're counting, that means I did THREE unique-to-Amy things today!!) I've been remodeling the kids' rooms and I had ONE more Ikea bookshelf that needed to be put together. Eric is a busy, busy man and I really try to give him a pass on most things, including the shelf. I'm not crazy about saying "hey, honey! Thanks for working 12 hours today & then coming home to play with the kids for 2 hours. Instead of going back to work tonight on your charts, can you assemble a shelf?" Noooo.... I love the guy too much. So today... I put that shelf together MYSELF. (Remember: I'm a southern girl so I have neither been trained to do such things nor am I expected to.) And yes, I did it incorrectly the first time and had to take it apart and start over. And yes, now that it's completed, the shelves are on upside down. But Lauren thinks I'm AWESOME because we did it together with our "girl power" and Eric can flip the shelves over when he has time. Meaning: check back in three years and they will look the same. WHO CARES?
Okay... okay... I know what you want. You want to know who won the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. LET ME SAY THIS: pay attention to the spelling of the winner's name. There are 2 entries with the same name but different spelling. Sucks, doesn't it? Here's the VLOG: enjoy!
That's it, folks! We'll have another give-away this weekend, I'm sure. And it'll be a good one so be sure to check back! Have a GREAT evening & I'll be talkin' at you soon now, ya hear?
