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??

I like chatty posts! But then again, I post them all the time so you probably knew that. ;)

Those pictures are fabulous! Good job on the early risings! That is what I do too - I hate facing exercise first thing in the morning, but it is so nice to have it done with!

Cute pics! That dress is so stinkin' sweet!!

Great job on the dress and cute pix of the kids. We missed the chance that day - so I'll be dressing 'em all back up in a week or so when the tupips all bloom and doing a "spring" pix.

Love the dress. That print is great. So, my friend still has not got back to me on her measurements. I've bugged her twice and her due date is this week. I'm thinking either she totally spaced it or she doesn't want one. Hmmm. Not sure. Maybe I will ask one more time and then that be it. :)
So proud that you have been getting up and exercising. I'm good for about 3 days last week. Need to get out for a walk this weekend yet. I wished I loved running. I did give up milk and half and half hoping to cut a few calories. I take calcium and vitamin d so really all I'm missing is the protein which I get plenty of. I was totally grossed out by Brittany's post about cheese. Can't say I want to eat much dairy after that one. Hope you have a great week. :)
