project life: week 7

You can see previous weeks of project life here.

The layout this week was very similar to what I've used in the past. I am trying to use other paper that I have lying around and scraps from things I've collected throughout the week. Here I used a comment card from Cheesecake Factory, paper from a Valentine's Day bag, and a couple handouts from church.
We don't ever do anything for Valentine's Day. Several years in the floral industry gave me a bad taste about it and we made a deal a long time ago that it's just nothing something we want to participate in. This year, I did give Isaac a cute little Valentine's bag with some candy and a Veggie Tale's video from his grandpa and grandma. I originally had something planned for dinner. I can't remember what I was going to make, but it didn't work out. So we ended up at our favorite mexican restaurant. 9 Valentine's Days together and this was the first time we have ever gone out to dinner.
On Monday night we had dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. Ben got a bonus from work so we decided to splurge a little bit on dinner. The waitress brought us bread and she also brought out Isaac his own little plate with bread and bananas. He was in heaven!
On Sunday night it snowed!! There had been a chance of sleet in the forecast and I told Ben I really hoped it would snow. He said it was very unlikely. About 8 o clock I went outside to take some trash out and saw the white flakes falling! We ran outside with a video camera and just enjoyed it. Of course, it didn't last very long. But we were like kids. (fyi- we live in D/FW, Texas where it doesn't snow very often)
For the past 3 weeks we've been "church shopping." One of the churches we checked out just started a series through 1 Corinthians. I really like the design of the infor cards so I held on to one to stick in my album. It just happened to be the right dimensions!


  1. i have seen this a few places, but it always seems to me like it would be way hard to manage/ keep up with. I am way impressed that you do it consistently and that it looks so adorable. These will be great keepsakes for you and your family!

  2. I love the idea of the book you're doing. I was so bad at doing Avery's baby book and now I'm kicking myself for it b/c I don't remember everything :(. Isaac's book looks amazing!
