Just sitting down to see what comes out, and thought I'd throw a couple pictures in for good measure. That's my kiddos on Easter morning, and how lovely to have a sunny day for a change! The past several Easters around here have been wet and miserable.
I made Ava's dress out of some meeUp fabric that I had sitting around, after I was inspired by a shop on Etsy. I whipped this up on Saturday night (I finished it at 2 am!) and the compliments rolled in all day on Sunday! *wink* Not to toot my own horn or anything...I actually really like the dress, but am a little tired of that fabric. I've been using it for meeUp for quite a while and I think after I'm sold out of it I'll discontinue it and find a different pinky, girly print.
Today was what I call a "coffee day"; cold and damp outside, wearing my Uggs and a sweater inside and drinking a pot of decaf to take the edge off of the chill. Coffee doesn't make me feel that great, but it sure hits the spot in moderation.
And, speaking of moderation, I gave up sweets for Lent (which I've done for several years) AND I've been watching my grain intake AND I've been getting up at 6:30 every morning and excercising instead of putting it off till later in the afternoon. SO...I've lost a couple pounds...SO I might not look like a beached whale in spandex this summer if I keep it up!!! I'd like to continue with the no sweets thing, but there are some birthdays coming up, which makes it hard.
Marvin just got back from his yearly trip on "tax night" to the post office that's open late on the other side of town. I can't believe he does this to himself every year! He is always so tired and miserable the next day. In his defense, though, this year a miracle occured and he was working on taxes in January and was about 2/3 of the way finished. When he went back to open up the file last weekend to finish, it was completely deleted! ARRRRGH! He had to start over...poor guy!
I'm running a giveaway this week over at Peanut Butter and Pickles for an adorable little girls hat, come and check it out and see if you can win!
I'll put up the second part of my "no cheese post" before the end of the week...I mostly wrote all that stuff to remind me why we don't eat dairy, it's easy for me to figure out something once and say I don't do it, but I often forget the reasons why. So read along if you wish!
Ok, I don't normally do this sort of rambling, non-specific post. I kinda feel like I'm on the phone with a friend at the end of the day or something! So, friends, do ya like this kind of chatty post??
