I bought a nice little eyebrow kit and I must say they look great! I highly suggest this little number from Smashbox...

Feeling loved...

I had such a great Mothers Day... Joey surprised me with a new little charm on my Mothers Day necklace that he and the kids gave me a couple years ago...a little bird for my Rita Pita...

The kids sang to me at church without crying!!! Woohoo!! I also got a long cozy nap with Rita and a last but not least a little gift card to a little store....can't wait to buy two whole things there!! lol, but those two things sure will be pretty!

cutest cherries

Cutest baby girl line at Gymboree. I want it all....for Rita of course!...But if they made it in my size I might think about it!

Rita's room...

It's getting done! Hallelujah! But is still a work in progress...

My heart hurts

I was blog hopping around 2 months ago and came across a blog. She had her youngest son who was 10 weeks old pass away in January. The words she writes about him and how she feels are amazing! She is a spiritual GIANT. I just visited her blog and she had the most beautiful post about Easter...
I had to share it HERE.

You will not have a dry eye watching the film...cuddle your babies after watching.

My hair needs to be done soooo bad...
The girl that usually does my hair had a baby about a month ago
(it already needed to be done back then)
so I have been waiting patiently for her to get back in the swing of things...
and then I found out she's moving back to Utah...
on Wednesday...
as in this Wednesday.

That. Sucks.

What I wish I was working on...

Peeps bunting out of felt


Check it out here on one of my very favorite blogs...

This blanket will never get done!!

Atleast that's how I feel right now...

I spent A LOT of time pinning and then as I was sewing I realized the chenille has A TON of give! So when I finished sewing one side I had all this extra chenille on the bottom!!!! WHAT DO I DO???? Any suggestions?....

Meanwhile I feel like if I shut the door to Rita's room one of these times I'm going to open it and the blanket will *magically* be done.....
Where is my Elder Wand with the unicorn hair in it when I need it???...
I would even settle for Mrs. Weasley to help my out...

glad I got that out.

Project Procrastination

I NEED to finish Rita's room! Today I'm working on making this a blanket (to which you're saying, "No you're not! You're blogging!", to which I say, "Layoff!"). I've already made a crib skirt out of some of it(See! I do get stuff done eventually!)..... Her room will be cute one day...

My Weekend

Cheesy, maybe...delicious, yes!....

next stop Cheesecake Factory Red Velvet... HEAVEN!!!

Needless to say diet started back up Monday...boo, thumbs down.

Thanks to ALEKSI for making this possible!!

Redo on the pony

A wise bird once said,

"Own that pony, work that updo!"

...and now Megan Fox can pout her little ( and by little I mean huge) lips and go back from whence she came! Next time she wears a pony it's her copying me! So there! :p

I tried to channel my inner Megan Fox today with a slick backed pony... Didn't do to me what it does to her...boo, thumbs down.

pedicure on my toes, toes

I went to a new nail salon to get a pedi this past Wednesday. I usually LOVE a good pedi, but this one was different.

The girl giving it spoke perfect American English.


I didn't even know how to react or what to say. She did a good job, but I missed hearing their language and wondering what they were saying. I missed the usual tap on the leg when it's time to put back in the water and bring the other leg up. Getting a pedi has now become totally associated with an asian girl giving me one...and I think next time I'll go to my old place.

Hey, wanna start a blog? Sure, why not...

When I went away to college I discovered that I am HORRIBLE at time management. I have never resolved this issue...and I don't plan on it now. So hears to blogging...which will waste yet even more TIME. Something I clearly need more of and that I'm really good at wasting what I do have. Yay!
