Busy, Busy Bee!

So much awesomeness happening in the next few days I don’t even know where to begin.

First of all, I was hoping to blog more this week but the annual photo book took precedence.

year in review

This is a huge time suck but oh so worth it.

Every year I rummage through all the photos I took — and I take a LOT of friggin’ photos — to find the best ones of the boys. Then I organize them by month and build a year in review photo album as a Christmas present for the grandparents.

I cherish my mom’s photo albums from the ’70s and ’80s and this is my version for the kids as well.

I stress about it every year because I procrastinate until the last minute but it’s so worth it. I’ve been making them since 2011 and I can literally page through and watch my boys growing up.

Now that the book is done I feel like I can breathe a little but things aren’t calming down (in a good way) the next few days.

Tonight we take The Boys to see Star Wars (of course!)

Tomorrow is the Gym’s holiday brunch and then tomorrow night is our annual Ugly Sweater Party AND The Husband’s 40THBIRTHDAY PARTY!

The Husband's 40!!

Yup, the big 4-0 — for the next 6 months I get to make fun of him for being an old man. I love it!

I mean, I know I’m right behind him but a girl’s got to take her shots while she can. Especially being married to Mr. Smartass. Amiright?

On that note, I’ve got to go. So much cooking, cleaning and prep needs to get done and I have to head to work this afternoon.

Have a great weekend!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I make a calendar every year also and used to stress in December going through photos. But on Walgreens’ photo page where I upload my photos, they have a “favorite” button so you can mark a photo from one album and it goes into the Favorite file. So as I upload a batch, I go back and mark a few of them that I know I’ll want at the end of the year. I still end of going back and looking a little, but this has helped so much. Love your blog, thanks for sharing.
