To Do Tuesday

Oh my goodness, my to do list is a mile long this week, but I am pairing it down to just the things I really want to get done.

1. Attend my sister's sweet 16 party. She is having a Mardi Gras themed bash in our backyard. We have been planning and preparing for like a month. Now the yard looks beautiful, but we have to cook and decorate. I am in charge of vegan delights and cupcakes for her vegan and veggie friends. My mom is dressing up like a fortune teller, Josh is the bartender/DJ, my sister's mom is cooking gumbo and Cajun food, and our dad is "running security" lol. It should be a lot of fun.
Sleep. Oh how I wish that sleep and I could be better friends. I am hoping that this week will be the week that I catch up on all of the sleep that I miss due to a lovely gift I have called insomnia.

3. Watch Elegy. I checked it out from the library and I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to watch it. I am not a huge fan of Penelope Cruz, but I love Ben Kingsley. Has anyone ever seen Death and the Maiden with him and Sigourney Weaver. So disturbing, but brilliant acting.
4. Craft! I still have to make 24 of my craft for the craft swap, a necklace for Courtney, and anything I want to give John for Easter. I better get cracking. ps- That isn't my adorable craft room, just one I found on weheartit.

6. CLEAN! It is time for some full on spring cleaning. My mom is taking John for the day on Thursday so I can clean my apartment and my dad's house from top to bottom. I never thought I would see the day when cleaning would be a pleasure, it is amazing how becoming a mom changes things :)

I haven't posted a picture of my little man in a few days. He is finally getting over this latest round of sickness. Today, out of nowhere he said Gobble Gobble, clear as day. Kids are so gloriously random.
Happy Tuesday!
