our week { viewed from my iphone }

I know I've been a little absent this week from the blog, but in a way it felt good not having to worry about posts or updates or staying up late to write. Instead, I stayed up late to do other things....like filling 175 balloons with helium that I then snuck into Jonas' room. Yep, that's right! We have started a new birthday tradition around our house. On the morning of the kid's birthday they wake up to a room full of decorations. For Joshua (he turned four in June) I covered the walls and doors with tissue paper. For Jonas' sixth birthday we decided balloons! I also hung some Star Wars streamers and a Star Wars plastic table cloth for extra fun.

So, my week was over taken by balloons, birthday parties at the pool and playdates. This week also included my daily Insanity workouts, some time with friends, movie night with the hubbie and some vintage shopping. Tomorrow I have a huge art show at a local winery, Gervasi, so it looks like I'll be up late tonight making jewelry.

Jonas woke up to this:
On Wednesday we had lunch at the restaurant and a playdate at our house.
the gang
Pool party on Thursday with a rockin Star Wars cake!
Pool side bubbles.

And a doctor's appointment to end the week. Too much pool means swimmers ear.


  1. Looks like a fun week! How exciting to wake up to a room fully decorated with balloons and everything. Great memories for them when they get older!

  2. Ahh what a great week, Liz! :) And that's such a great new tradition to do for the kids. I would of been like "WOAH, SWEET!" I'm sure he loved it!! :D

  3. I had swimmer's ear as a kid...TOTALLY sucked. Happy Birthday to your little one, glad you had a blast!

  4. the photos are gorgeous! i might have to use that balloon idea for Kyle's 6th next year :)

  5. What a fun way to celebrate together, love the thought of your newly started tradition. I think I have swimmers ear right now which is so not fun, I feel for him :-( Oh & I'm a P90X junkie...love BeachBody!

  6. Wow! That balloon ceiling is amazing!
    And equally amazing: How did you manage to sneek them all in without waking the birthday boy?

    Thanks for your kind comment on my blog. I'll be back to see what kind of jewelry you're working on! :)
