The week before last was supposed to be a big week. I was going to get the whole house cleaned for Passover, aka: Spring Cleaning. I had a list a mile long of everything I wanted to accomplish. But the most important job on the list was my bathroom grout because it was filthy! I estimated it would take two hours. Three hours later I had only finished about a quarter of the floor! I realized that deep cleaning takes waaaaaaay longer than I thought possible. Unfortunately this set me back and I was kind of upset about it. But then I had a change of attitude and I thought it would be fun to do a video explaining everything. So I hope you enjoy my newest video:

Tired. So tired.
This week was spent in Palm Springs and ladies, it was hot! The kids had a wonderful time but by day 4 we were tuckered out so we decided to come home. Unfortunately Ariella, my 2 year old, didn’t sleep very well at all and her fits were coming closer together and lasting longer, so we all chose to cut the trip short by one day. The good news is she slept the whole night last night and seems to be much better. I, on the other hand, am exhausted! It might have been a vacation for the kids, but for my husband and I it was hard work! But we all had a wonderful time. I will write more about our trip next week.
While I was sunning in the desert, it was Wedding Week here on The Glamorous Housewife. I had so much fun putting together the wedding themed posts and I hope you all enjoyed reading them. Here they are, just in case you missed a few:

It’s wedding week here on The Glamorous Housewife, and even though my level of expertise is not necessarily weddings, I do have some decor advice for the subject!
I love going to weddings! First of all I enjoy celebrating any two people finding love. Then you have the gourmet food, the cocktails, the flowers, and the dancing! I love to dance and don’t get to do it as much as I would like. But mostly I just need any excuse to put on a gorgeous new gown. I put together a round-up of my favorite dresses that I think are perfect for the upcoming season. You will notice they are all brightly colored. That is because I don’t really like wearing a black dress at a wedding. Oh sure, there are plenty of people who wear them, and I think it is an acceptable choice. But for something as lighthearted as a wedding, I think it is better to go with a color instead the dreariness of black.
