New Hobby

I found a new hobby!

Making hair clipies. I have been wanting to do something different. I like to change things up everyonce in a while. Get my creative juices flowing again. Well I got my supplies in the mail today and had a gang of a time. Ms Maggie is quite please with all of her new hair clipies.
Look for them soon in my etsy/ebay stores. ;o)

My poor Blog

Well it has been a while since I have been in my blog. I thought things would be calming down around here but it has gotten crazier (is that a word?)

On a personal note

I have begun my journey to fitness. AGAIN! I had join a physique competition last year and I won MIP woman by losing over 30lbs. Well I have slipped this past winter to gain it back. Partly to a foot injury that given me problems this past year.

So I will be back to a tight diet and at the gym 4+ times a week. So I will keep you updated on my monthly success. I have joined the competition again this year and hoping to win again this year but keep it off this time. ;o)
I do have one listing ending tomorrow.
It was made with the Heather Ross Goldfish in bags fabric. I love this fabric and would love to more but this is the last of it. Don't miss out on such a great deal!! Size 3/4

Meet Jack

I have no will power!!
Well my husband thought it would be fun to go to Petsmart tonight. Well $100 later we walk out with Jack.
Well we actually went to a different store 20 min away to get him. The 1st store only had 1 guinea pig and he was a bit nervous. So we went to a different store to find Jack. Riley picked him first thing. We were going back and forth on name choices and Xavier decided it should be Jack.
We did look at hamsters and thought about a bird. Neither one I was secure in getting for the kids. With a hamster or birds the kids would never be able to play with it. I would be to afraid it would get hurt or lost.
So Jack is Tim's fathers day present. ;o)
Peek a boo
Whatcha doin Willis?

My project today.

Tomorrow is a big day here. My son's school has there annual parish picnic/parade. Since I am resident room mom I am in charge of our class to get ready for the parade. The parade theme this year is holiday and the 2nd grade got 4th of July. Well come to find out the teacher has a work shop and won't be at the parade. So I have to take all the children to Mass and then get them to there parade post. I can barely wrangle up my 8yr old much less a whole class!
The sploches on the outside are the kids hand prints to resemble fireworks. :o)

Now we find out that the Mayor will be in the parade and we will be following him. Keep in mind I live in St Louis City. So this is a big deal for our mayor to come to our tiny parade. So wish me luck on keeping the kids in line for parade.

What an interesting afternoon we had here today in the Gate Way to the West. Normally here in the City of St Louis Tornados are few. They mostly occure in the surrounding counties. My wonderful husband called me from the 11th floor of his building to tell me there is a tornado warning. So the kids and I went to the center of the house to play board games. Since we have dish we pretty much had no TV to tell us about the threat or when it was over.

Turning to the trusty wirerless I was on line watching the storm pass over us live. ;o) Well nothing touched down here in the city. Just small ones out in the counties. I don't think there was any damage in the area.

I have been through many tornados in my life so I pretty much know the warning signs and when to duck and cover. Heck my brother was even picked up by one. He was out with his umbrella and he was lifted about 2in before he let go of the umbrella. I can still see his face when he got inside.

The kids didn't mind. They got mom with out any distraction to play board games in the middle of our house(dinning room).

Keep tune for tomorrow for a big annoucement!!
