A Very Late Post

Standard

Hello!!! It has been quite awhile since I have made a post and even though making posts isn’t something I’m required to do, I am a little disappointed with myself because I miss posting! 🙂

Anyway, this is a very late post but a couple months ago I finally finished one of the DIY CarSeat Ponchos I was making for my kids!

My older two kids picked out their own fabric and I used a mixture of two tutorials that I found in a DIY group I’m in on Facebook.

After weeks of delaying and saying I was going to do it and hauling the fabric with me to and from my mom’s house, in the hopes I would get motivated to do it, I finally did it one night Hubby had off work. I made the hoods first.

Then Hubby helped me lay out the two layers of yards of fabric and cut them evenly. Followed closely by pinning them 🙂 First our middle child’s, our son William….

image

Then our oldest child’s, our daughter Isabelle…..

I will admit, it is well after midnight by this time and this was one of the most extensive projects I had done in YEARS!! So while we were doing the hood on William, my machine started goofing up and missed a few small spots. Pretty good given the fact that it was going through six layers of fleece fabric lol!! At the end, my bobbin thread got hugely tangled (at almost 4am) and I broke down and started crying because I thought I ruined it 😦 Put everything away and went to bed…..

Took it out a couple days later and it was perfect (except two tiny spots that one layer is missed on the inside lol)!!!!

He Loved it and it kept him nice and snuggly warm lol!! 🙂

image

Still have to sew the hood on Isabelle’s, I will finish it before this winter! But first I am doing some other smaller projects to redevelop my basic sewing skills so hopefully I won’t meltdown again if my machine and I are very tired lol 😛

Believe in yourselves!! And sew on!! 🙂 😀

Beautiful…

Is Beauty always what it seems? Always a good thing?

Movies about high school, the most beautiful and popular girl….
Shallow and mean, almost evil…

Nature, beautiful and amazing snow scenery…..
Thousands without power, car accidents, money down the drain, parents unsure if little ones will be able to have a good Christmas now….

How can something so beautiful be so devastating? So opposite of what it appears?

Fun things you see at Walmart & on the way

Standard

I’m sure everyone has heard or seen the stereotypes that have to do with Walmart. If you haven’t, just google The People of Walmart and you should find plenty of funny things. Well, this post is a little late but with Christmas and everything, I figured it would be understandable.

During one day of Christmas shopping, hubby and I were on our way to Walmart. We were stopped at a red light when we looked over at the Burger King on the right side of the street. What we saw made me laugh out loud!!!

image

You can’t really tell because we were a little far away but….do you see the lump on the top of this car that is in the drive threw???

image

How about now?? That, my friends, is a deer! This person went hunting, bagged a deer, and then thought to themselves “Hey, let’s celebrate with some Burger King!!” Lol, I feel bad for the drive threw workers, can you imagine opening that window to the blast of dead deer carcass?? Blah!!!

Then we were driving around in the Walmart parking lot, looking for a parking spot. Drove past this car and had to put us in reverse so I could check to make sure I saw what I thought I saw lol.

image

I did blur the license plate to protect identities and all that stuff. But look!! A purple mustache on a car!!!

image

This was so funny, I couldn’t believe it. I’ve seen reindeer noses but never mustaches lol. I normally don’t follow the stereotypes of Walmart but these are definitely giving me pause lol.

image

Does anyone else see funny things on cars? Going down the road? In parking lots? Are you weird like me and take pictures or just laugh in the moment and let it go lol?

First Workout

Standard

My mom and I had both been wanting to sign up at a gym for awhile now. Well for Cyber Monday we took the plunge because they were having a sale: 30 Day Trial for only $5, how could you pass that up? So we signed up with Snap Fitness.

image

We finally got our access cards so today we went for our first workout!!! So exciting!

We got there and one of the personal trainers walked us through the machines and our first workout. It was fun, we both kept laughing at each other. It is always more fun when you workout with someone lol.

image

We did the treadmill, squats, plank, mountain climbers, leg presses, then did some of the machines to work the upper body. I must say…..I feel like a noodle!!! Lol, I feel good but I definitely feel like a noodle.

image

We are going back Friday for our next workout and I can’t wait! So excited to start getting my pregnancy weight off and getting back to a weight I feel more comfortable with. 🙂

William’s latest discovery

Standard

Today we are spending time at my mom’s. She has these two pink plastic cups that Isabelle and William have a ball playing with but normally it involves throwing them around or banging them on things. Tonight, William decided to try something new…..

He decided that he wanted to try to suction the cup to his face lol!!

I’m sure that anyone that has kids, has been around kids, or has been a kid themselves knows what happened when he did it…….

It made a farting sound!!!

Something so simple and so silly but it caught him so off guard that it sent everyone into laughter!!

This link is to the video of him doing it lol, enjoy!!! 🙂

How can this not be an awesome blog with a name like that?? Love her stories!

Now for a few things about myself…..

I absolutely LOVE to read but obviously, with 3 kids it doesn’t happen as much as I would like lol…

I make Nursing Necklaces, I call them Nursing Baby Neck Toys and I am selling them in a Consignment Shop for the first time in January 2014!!

My mom and grandma are my two Best Friends, aside from my husband, and we spend A LOT of time together!!

I grew up having dance parties in our living room with my mom and some friends atleast once a week, and I hope my kids enjoy the same thing and have the same memory!

I hope to one day start my own business, I just have to sort through my many ideas and pick one….

I hope you all enjoy the bright sunny smiles that these pages can bring, and hope you enjoy them as much as I do!! 🙂
