Do Something! Update (The Red Lipstick Edition)

I don't really feel like I've had much to post about this past week or so.  Everything is so small on its own, and not really worth a post of its own.  So here's a run-down of what I've been doing:

1. My husband turns 32 today.  I was an awful wife and forgot to wish him happy birthday this morning as he was leaving for work.  In my defense, I was still mostly asleep.  Then I had the kids call him while we were heading to the grocery store, but couldn't talk myself because I was driving.  So he called me at 2:30 with a well-deserved guilt trip.  I, who believe feeling special on birthdays is IMPORTANT, failed to make the most important person in my life feel special on his birthday.  I hope I can make it up to him when he gets home from work

2. This is day three of Red Lipstick Week!  So far it is going well.  Sunday I paired my red lips with a pretty yellow shirt, brown dress pants, and flats.  Monday was cleaning day, so I wore yoga pants and a stained t-shirt.  I also had an unplanned but definitely welcome visitor in the morning and didn't leave myself enough time to change before picking up my daughter from school.  So I threw on a denim jacket and a scarf to dress it up a little.  Tuesday was jeans, Chucks, and a t-shirt...but it's a blinged-out t-shirt, so I thought the red lipstick worked well.

3. I'm working on a How to Design an Apron (Without a Pattern) tutorial...who knows when I will get it finished.

4. I've been keeping up with my housekeeping routines for the most part.  Sunday was a bit chaotic (because I started sewing the aprons on the weekend), but I was able to catch up a bit on Monday.  Even to washing my dishes at 9:45 pm after returning home from bible study and putting the kids to bed.  It's so much nicer to wake up to a clean-ish kitchen than one full of dirty dishes!  It took me less than 10 minutes to wash, dry, and put away.

5. After about two years of excessive use, I figured it was about time to polish up my faithful favourite boots.  I used mink oil and they look almost new. (Before on the right, After on the left).

6. As seen by the yellow, patched walls in one of the above photos, I am preparing to paint our master bedroom and closet.  Probably while wearing red lipstick.
