But wait! That wasn't the end of the fabric! I went fabric CRAZAY! Well, not really - I just changed the fabric around my craft blocks to match and bring everything together. You can get a better look at the fabric in this picture. I bought about 1/2 a meter of fabric and I've still got about half of it left. I'm sure I'll find some fabulous use for it yet! ;)
While I was taking photos of all my new creations - my 3 year old asked me if I would take some photos of her. How could I resist those eyes? Honestly - she has her daddy's eyes, and they melt my heart. I even got her to LOOK at the camera for a change. What a treat! She is a bright ray of sunshine in our lives - so lively and sweet. You've never heard a giggle until you've heard this one start! Her giggles are completely infectious! I LOVE listening to her. She is such a sweetheart.
I had a GREAT "mommy" day today. I prayed this morning for an abundance of the Spirit in my home and for an increase of love and patience towards my family. I knew that I had to do my part for that to happen, so instead of TV, I turned on some fun music. I did my workout early so that I could spend some quality time with my 3 year old while the older kids were in school. We sat down and worked in her preschool book, then played a fun clean-up game together. We laughed as we did our Friday chores and screamed as daddy chased us with the vaccum. Afterwards we danced around the kitchen to Michael Jackson's "Billy Jean" until lunch time. It was a positive mommy day for me and I have been so blessed to have my prayers answered so obviously!
After lunch I treated myself to a haircut (now I'm a bob-girl!) because I've been doing well on my other resolution (getting into shape). I'm down 9 pounds (soooo close to that 10th pound, but hey - it's that time of the month and I'm retaining water folks) so I'm counting it as a success. At least I didn't put on any weight this week, I LOST a pound. I'm doing well with my exercising (haven't been able to run for more than 2 - 4 minutes at a time yet) and I've been getting a TON of water. I feel really great! I've also been steadily losing inches - though not enough that I notice a big difference in my clothes yet. I'm not getting discouraged, though. The weight won't come off overnight - but slow and steady will certainly win this race. It's what I'm counting on!
Well, I've got some work to do (i.e. scrapbooking - ha ha! That OTHER resolution) so I'll get going. I want to say how much I LOVE and appreciate you all for bothering to stop by here. I can totally feel the love and it gives me a boost I can't describe. So THANK YOU for coming by! Have a great weekend!
