I'm in Montgomery for a few days hanging out with my Mommy. I'm helping her pack up her house because she BOUGHT a new one and we're SO excited for her! Today we went to the new house and I took some pictures and we measured some rooms so she can start working on how to place her furniture.



Master Bath.

Bedroom for all the MANY grandbabies.

More pictures to come...

Recently, I've picked up a new hobby...sewing. I love it! It's imperative for my own sanity (and Eric's) that I am able to get my creative juices flowing and MAKE things! There's so much reward in using your hands to create something, that before was just a piece of fabric.

My super creative friend, Caitlin, has also participated in the funness of crafting, and we've started to have a "craft day" at least once a month.

At the last craft day we made little zipper pouches (this tutorial suggests using mid-weight woven non-fusible interfacing, but I've had better luck with using a heavy-weight, it helps, especially the larger ones, hold their shape better). I've made several of them in different sizes; I have one for my lip gloss and such that I throw in my purse; Another that houses all my make-up; and another that is really too big to figure out what to use it for, so it's sitting on a shelf in my bathroom! :) I've also made several more for friends and family.

We'll have our next craft day in a couple of weeks and we're so excited! We'll be making a few things, but the main thing I'm planning on making is an apron. If you've found any good apron tutorials shoot them my way, I've been searching!

We finally did it.

We purchased a big girl/boy camera. I'm very excited!

I ordered this camera body...

And I'm going to order a couple of lenses.

So far I'm definitely set on this one...

And I'm trying to decide between a couple, and haven't made my final choice yet. I'll get it in a few days, so I'll let you know how much I'm loving it, or not loving it.

So long...

To all my one reader(s) (Mom!), I haven't been able to blog lately because we no longer have internet.

We're trying to cut back, and that was one of the easiest things to let go, however we are both very sad about it. We keep picking up the computer and thinking we can sign on...but oh no, we can't.

On another note, I ran my first 10k this weekend! It was a lot of fun! I think I might try to run another one soon!

I'll post pics soon!
