my week via instagram

i don't know why, but the phrase "another one bites the dust" just popped into my head as a way to begin this post.
i feel like that implies that this week was bad or that my life is just one week fading into another.
rest assured, it was not & it is not!

we had a fun week filled with lots of family time & even a live car accident! 
{keep reading for details...}

our lawn has been weed central for weeks & mike finally mowed it this week. 
eli enjoyed watching daddy.  
i told him someday when he was big, he could mow the lawn. 

and when daddy mows, mommy gets the fun job of scooping the poop. 
eli can have that job too.

we had some family time at the park...though it didn't last too long.
not much for a 7 month old to do.
plus, it was soooo hot! 
i don't know if i'm ready for summer yet.  
i'm just glad i'm not pregnant this summer!

i had to run to the grocery store & when i returned home, eli showed off his new 'do.
daddy had fun playing hairdresser.
too cute, right?

one day we had a picnic lunch out at codorus. 
it was so beautiful out....though a bit windy on top of the hill.

then another day we went to visit daddy while he was doing some work at his office away from home: panera.
i'm really not sure why we were cozying up by the fire while it was so nice outside, but it was fun nonetheless.

i totally indulged in an iced mocha, but it was soooo good!
i started working out again this week {finally} so i didn't feel quite as bad.

no week would be complete without picking up a few needed items at the store.
we happened to score the last of these cute little babies.
we got a great deal too!

ok, so now the story you've been sitting on the edge of your seat for....
so saturday we were sitting in the living room hanging out & talking when all of a sudden we hear a crash, glass breaking, metal crunching & a scream.  
then we see a car come cruising up into the neighbor's yard across the street.
mike & his mom {who was here visiting} went running outside while i called 911.
it was a 3 car accident, 2 cars hitting head on & the 3rd in the neighbor's yard...missing that tree there by inches. 
miraculously, no one was hurt...maybe a few bruises and some whiplash, but nothing serious at all.

here's a better picture of the car in the yard. 
they ran over the stop sign & cruised in between this tree & another tree.
they also could've ran into the house.
it was crazy! 
it made for a lot of excitement on our corner.

after our adrenaline high, we hung out with a bunch of friends at a birthday party for our friends' son.
it was a great way to end the day!

i'm so bummed because closed down & now i can't do my collages for my #photoaday pics.
until i find another way to do it, i'll just have some really long posts!

day 16: "flower" - i love that i have my very own lilac bush outside! this is one of my favorite smells.

day 17: "something you don't like" - doing dishes. when i was younger i would clean the whole house for my mom before i would do the dishes.
unfortunately, i can't get out it now.

day 18: "hair" - i posted this twice because it was the perfect hair picture.

day 19: "orange" - i didn't know what to post for this one because we have a lot of orange objects in our's a favorite color of ours, but when i saw this orange car i thought it was such a crazy color for a car.  i really didn't think i had seen too many orange cars before & since then i've seen probably 15.  weird.

day 21: "bottle" - this is one of 2 huge green bottles that came from my grandparents' house. she had them sitting in her window with a bunch of other bottles & i always loved the way they looked. when my grandma passed away, i took them to always have that memory.

day 22: "the last thing you bought" - just a couple of things from one of my weekly trips to target.
{i actually bought coffee today but forgot to take a picture.}

yeah, i know, i missed day 20. i forgot to take a picture for that day. the story of my life: "i forgot".

anyway, i'm really bummed about the weather forecast for this week.
being stuck inside makes for long days, so we'll have to find something fun to do to document.

oh & i'm still working on my post about the food pantry.
i keep forgetting though that i need to finish it.

thanks for stopping by.
hope you all have a great week!!


  1. I loooove Eli's little mohawk! Such a cutie! We went to the gym this morning, and Kellyn was SO happy to see Mr. Mike!

  2. Aw, that little mohawk is adorable... and how crazy is that car accident?! I've heard of stories like that before but never actually witnessed one, thank goodness!
