last week i participated in the Christmas Exchange link up & didn't do an instaweek post... so that means i've got quite a bit to catch you up on!

for frequent highlights, follow me @robina_black

highlights of the past few weeks:
- making a coffee table out of an old window from our house! (full DIY here)

- one of our dogs stayed with my sister in law for a week, & the basset hound did not do well by herself, so she took over our bed!

- walks with my husband at the lake! i love that black swan!

- my friend Jenna gave me an adorable "Robin" owl ornament from the owl shoppe

- i chose balance as my word to live by for 2014

- my aunt & uncle gave us sunflower silicone lids for bowls & coffee cups for Christmas. these things are so neat! not only are they super cute, but they keep the bowl air tight & suction so you can actually pick up the entire pot by the lid handle! & i use the coffee cup one all day long at work!

- my stickygram magnets came in & they are so, so cute!

#greatchristmas2013 goodies were revealed! it was so much fun seeing what everyone got!

- our first Passport to Fun date was this weekend. we went to Paris, France! full post with pictures to come!

- my husband & i started whole30 yesterday (one of the items on my 30 x 30 list)
-also, yesterday i found out that i have to go on a business trip next week. a lady i work with put in her notice, so they are shifting around some work & that means i have to travel up north to train on more work! i'm hoping there's no ice on the roads while i'm there! i do have some awesome posts coming your way next week though! :)
