Sew, Sew, Sew

So one of my new years resolution was to learn how to sew.
Well I found this amazing material that I fell in love with and had to buy it to sew something.
SO sew I did.....
a blanket for Miss Hannah- a practice blanket...Im thinking this will be my baby gift for further mamas to be!

thanks to my friend Nichole, I learned how to make a wonderfully creative edge......GO ME!!!

Zoe had her preschool party today!

Gorgeous nails that I (the creative mother) painted all by myself
painting the laundry room (or so I thought)
Friday morning I went to coffee with my friend Nichole, Zach was suppose to be taking the washer and dryer out of the room so that I COULD PAINT IT when I got back......
Needless to say, this is what I came home too

as irritated as I was, here is the partial finished project (we need some trim) of my newly painted and tiled laundry room!

I think I wear my heart on my sleeve.
Maybe thats not the term for what I am feeling but URGH.

Do you ever feel like youve done something wrong but you dont know what.

I do that all the time, I read into things, the way people act a certain day, or when they dont respond back, or just say hello instead of a 30 minute conversation.

I am so weird, I read into everything and I always over react and get my feelings hurt.

What the heck.

I dont know if that is wearing your heart on your sleeve or just being an idiot, today IM going to have to go with being an idiot.

My resolution this year was to not read into things, enjoy life and friends, take them as they are, everyone is busy, Im busy (not really) and just know that everyone has a bad day or week or minute.

They dont respond back: they are busy
They dont take the extra time to chat: they will catch next time

I need to get over this feeling, I dont need to be reasured...that must come from a confidence issue-
anyway- heres to starting the day over!
Happy, healthy, loved, in-love and feeling positive


When it pores:)

So here I am visiting the great town of wenatchee- great friends good family and two children! A two year old and a 6 week old. Never have I traveled this far ( 2 1/2 hours) by myself with them and the trip there- fantastic!! Well on the way home I was stopped by a road crew blowing up rocks- 20 minute delay- okay, so we wait the twenty minutes. We pass the flagger and of course it has been 2 hours since I fed the newborn so its time to eat she screams- we make it to the rest stop and POW its closed, so we pull over! Then in the middle of feeding my two year old yells POTTY MOMMY, POTTY MOMMY- great- I say. So I give her the option to go outside- NO WAY so I say " lets put on your sisters diaper and just this one time you can go in a diaper" NO WAY aaaaaaaaaaaa- what do I do...well, there is a fruit stand up the road! So we hop in the car, get to the fruit stand and I plead my case- YES they say, you can use the toilet!!!
okay, I think we are good to go...but of course we get behind three truckers!!!
So long story short our 2 1/2 hour trip ends up taking us almost four and we make it home to a loving husband and father and a batch of peanut butter cookies from the neighbor!
I guess there is always a rainbow at the end of a rainstorm- HUH?
