Robot Baby Quilt

Fabric SelectionI was in need to start and finish something creative, and what better way to do that than with a deadline? We had our baby shower that the wonderful people from work through for us, and this was the perfect opportunity! So last friday I set out to buy some fabric, and did so with Little Man. He was so willing to help pick out fabric! He kept pointing to different ones and calling them by color (though mostly got them wrong) and the ones he decided were going into the card were the ones we kept. I will say that he was selective! He did say "no, put back" to several different bolts that I picked out. Apparently they weren't good enough! LOL... But I think the final selection that we had worked out wonderfully! :)

Dinosaurs and the Fair

T-Rex headLast weekend I walked way too much! It took a toll on me and I was hurting on Monday and into Tuesday. But, Nikolai had fun and that was the whole purpose of last weekend! We were such tourists! :)
Friday I went fabric shopping! I got some fabrics from JoAnn's for a coworker's baby shower this past Friday! We shared the baby shower and I feel so thankful! The people I work with are amazing! It makes me sad to be leaving, but it is for good reasons. :) But I will do another post on that later. :)

A Crazy but Fun weekend!

My goodness, it seemed non-stop go-go-go this weekend! It was fantastic though! I think Nikolai enjoyed himself, I know I enjoyed myself, and Brandon passed out on the floor around 6:30 so he must've had fun!
Nikolai and I had to take an impromptu visit to the zoo on Friday. Though I was not fully prepared to spend a ton of time there (we usually do), we at least had to walk through. Our membership cards were returned because the zip code on the mailing was wrong. Weird, I was pretty darn sure I wrote it down right, but the zip wasn't anything close to our current one, nor was it anything close to our old one. I have no idea where the numbers came from!

The Blog...

I have been trying to decide on updates for this blog... The background no longer feels like it fits me or the blog. It worked in the beginning, but now seems like it needs an update...

I have also added some social networking icons on the left! I figured out how to do the coding for that myself, and though I don't feel like there is a theme at the moment, I am happy that I have done that! This is mostly because I have received some emails to do so! :)

I am in the process of creating a page for the blog on facebook. I am a little excited and a little scared. But, it is fun... Only if the internet will cooperate and let me upload at least the main picture! We will see...

Just thought I would share this with you. And if you see more changes on the blog, you'll know it is because I feel it needs some changes. :)

Yummy Cookies!

I am so thankful for Fridays because they start my weekend! Especially lately with feeling super tired every day after work, and the heat is starting to kick in. On Wednesday I swear I put a lot of miles on my shoes just running back and forth trying to keeping things somewhat calm in a crazy 5th grade classroom that had a sub. Substitutes are not good for some of the kiddos on my caseload because of lack of structure and the change. It doesn't help when outside forces add to the behaviors of those kiddos!

Easter; 101 Days to Go!

Well, Easter came and went super fast! I did manage to find my egg dye in a box and took that out to dye Easter eggs with. I figured the kids would like it, and after some discussion with a teacher at the school I figured Nikolai might enjoy it too!
