Our Ordinary Life – New Weekly Giveaway!

We are going to start something new here at Our Ordinary Life, an exciting weekly reader giveaway. We will recap the highlights from the last week, share a few family moments that mattered and host a fun giveaway that corresponds with the week. Think gift cards, cameras, stand mixers, you know things busy parents actually want!

The last week was pretty low key for our family. After a visit to Arizona last weekend we spent the week getting organized. My goal is to rid the storage unit we currently have of all the junk inside and really lesson the amount of stuff that we have. Three kids and all these years later it’s time to just clean out the old. The girls were happy about getting the bounce house out. march 2015 bounce house

It’s getting warm here in California so we’re really enjoying the sunshine of spring! Hope you enjoy your week and enter the giveaway below!

  15. Kimberly Hilbert on March 14, 2015 at 9:10 am

    It’s been an uneventful week, which is what I like. The weather is in the 50’s so my driveway is slowly getting less treacherous. I sold some things in my Etsy shop and have a few days off work this week. It’s all good!

  16. Theresa Smith on March 13, 2015 at 6:24 pm

    It has been beautiful weather and we have enjoyed going outside to play with the grandchildren. Who could ask for anything more.

    My week is a bit hectic. It is nice having my son home from college though.

  31. Geoff K on March 10, 2015 at 1:58 pm

    My week has been pretty uneventful other than joining a new tennis league and helping my niece learn her lines for the school play. So far so good — I like uneventful weeks since they’re usually pretty hectic!

  32. Tarah on March 10, 2015 at 11:27 am

    The week has just started so hard to say what may happen. Had our project manner come out this morning to discuss the 120 day inspection on our new house. Got a cholesterol test scheduled for Wednesday and the lawn people are supposed to show up sometime this week to get started with fertilizing etc for spring. Other than that, who knows?
