my week via instagram

well, here it is tuesday already & i'm just now getting around to my blog post for last week.
 i don't know why, but today really feels like monday to me. 
somehow i lost a day.
BUT this is supposed to be about last week, so moving right along...

i finally {FINALLY} tackled the project of transitioning eli out of our room completely.
up until last month he was still sleeping in our room in the pack & play.
when we returned from our mini-vacation, we moved him into his room.
however, all of his clothes & diapers were still in our room....piled high on top of our dresser.
 {mostly because his dresser was still sitting in the box}

so...momma tackled the dresser
my supervisor made sure i was putting it together correctly.

and the final product:

& because this was done, we were able to take our dresser back:
woo hoo!
i should've done a before & after shot to really get the full effect.

last week mike & i watched the movie "forks over knives". 
ever see it?
after watching it, we decided we wanted to go vegetarian.
it's a really interesting movie & changed the way we view food. 
now, we haven't started yet because i wanted to use up the meat we had in the house.
but we did make a trip to five guys for lunch to have a last burger.

we are trying the vegetarian thing for 12 weeks to start & to see if it makes a difference for us.
i'll keep you posted on how it's going. 

this week, because it was easter, my brother came home for a few days.
he lives in tampa so we don't get to see him very often...only a couple times a year.
it's always so good to spend time with him.  

the 4 of us went to full moon.
best sushi ever! 
i hadn't had sushi since before i was pregnant, so this was a very special treat!

and on a side note, can i just say that asian women LOVE eli. 
earlier in the week we went to a hibachi buffet with my parents & the waitresses spent 75% of the time we were there at our table playing with him.
at one point when mike was holding him, one of the waitresses came & took him from mike!
then at full moon, our waitress kept sitting down at our table to talk to eli.
we told my brother if he wanted to score an asian woman, he could take eli out & he'd have his pick!

of course, sunday we celebrated the resurrection of our savior....victory over death!
our service was awesome! 
we had 4 people from our food pantry come to church with us.  
after 2 and a half years, we are finally witnessing God's hand at work!
{more on this later}

then we headed to my aunt's house to be with family.

this is eli with one of my cousins' daughter.
she is almost exactly one month older than eli.  
they were having a blast hanging out!

almost forgot eli with his easter basket.
hit up the dollar bin at target for these sesame street books.
the boy LOVES books! 

daddy showing off his juggling skills.
eli got a kick out of this!

i started a new photo a day challenge linking up with fat mum slim.
it seems this month i'm going at it alone, but i don't care, i'm having fun finding ways to use my creativity to complete the challenge.

1. "your reflection" - heading off to church last week with some more pink eye, hence the glasses!
2.  "color" - eli's room definitely has the most color in our house.  i love how bright & fun it is!
3. "mail" - this is where our mail goes after we open it & it usually hangs out here until we get around to taking it upstairs to file it away.
4. "someone who makes you happy" - i know, way too predictable right? what can i say?

1. "tiny" - this is one of many tiny little toys that aunt jen & aunt jess decorated with at my baby shower. the moose is my favorite.
2. "lunch" - using up the meat this week i made some chicken pot pie & had some leftovers. 
3. "shadow" - stealing a shadow kiss with my love.
4. "inside your wallet" - pretty boring but at least right now it's organized!

as i mentioned, i do have some very exciting news regarding the food pantry, but i'm going to save that for another post...keep you on the edge of our seat & require you to visit again!

until next time.....
