So today has been an interesting day. I found out that I am going to have to completely change almost all of the classes that I'm taking. That's okay though because I still have time to change them and not fall too far behind in my plans to get a degree. Seeing as how we are moving next year hopefully to Houston we looked at houses today. SOOO Exciting! There are houses that are being built right now, and as soon as we find out if we are moving here we are going to apply for a mortgage and try to get the house. What's even better is that we get to choose options in the house like the front brick and colors in the house and upgraded features. That is awesome! I definitely hope we move here. I promised pictures, so here they are. Not all are from the surprise party, but some are of Kaeden just being cute.

We're in Houston!

So we flew in last night to Houston. From the get-go we had numerous problems forgetting the baby's birth certificate was the first. Luckily we were able to get it and didn't miss our flight. Then our flight was delayed, which was good to begin with because we had to go home and get the birth certificate, but then it ended up being delayed 2 hours. However, I noticed that there was another non-stop flight to Houston, to make a long story short we were able to switch flights. When we got to Houston we found out that our original flight ended up being delayed 5 hours! Wow! I'm glad we switched flights! We surprised my in-laws who had no idea that we were coming, they were having a surprise 60th birthday party that went really well. It was a shrimp boil. YUMMY! Needless to say everything was really great! Looking forward to the time spent here. I will try to post pictures tommorrow.

New Things!

Today was a pretty good day I was able to make use of the skirt that I messed up I made it into a pretty bag! I said yesterday I would post pictures of the skirts I made so here they are! I also signed up for Paint Mine Pink's Cotton-N-Candy Swap! I think this shoudl be really fun. I'm excited. My store is starting to get more things in it so I'm excited about that too. The red skirt is a skirt that I made for my niece. I really hope that she likes it. The black and white skirt is for me. It look alot bigger than it really is. I'm am planning on wearing that to a party. Hopefully people will ask about it, but we'll see.

So today seemed like a busy day. I bought my books for school at a whopping $600.00 Good Grief that's alot of money for books! I also made a skirt not as nice as I'd like it to be but defintely wearable. I will post pictures tommorrow. I really like the material hopefully people will think it's nice too. I'm excited to say that I sold a purse in my etsy store, however, the buyer has not paid yet. I guess if they don't pay by tommorrow I might send her an e-mail. What do you all think. Is that a good idea what is the protocol on that? I'm also waiting to hear back about a kitchen nook that I really want, but I haven't heard back yet. Everyone think positive thoughts for me. Well... I'm off to read your blogs!

This weekend has been relatively uneventful. I did however make a new purse! I also attemped to make a skirt, but somethings got messed up and lets just say it wasn't pretty. Oh well, I can try again. My purse is really cute though here is a picture! Tomorrow I will try to make another purse, but one for myself kind of like an exhibition piece, so hopefully people will ask me about it and I can direct them to my website. We'll see. You can find it in my esty website if interested.

Well... it seems that I have been very busy, but I feel like I have nothing to show for it. That's okay tommorrow I will be sewing alot! I have a ton of great ideas in my head. I need to make a beautiful baby blanket, a purse for one of my pampered chef friends, and a purse for myself, so that I can where it with a button on it that says "Ask me about my purse!" Hopefully this type of advertising will work, but only time will tell. I also have to study for a test that I am taking in a couple of weeks. The Praxis, it's for people who want to be teachers. I hope that I do well the first time because this test is expensive. There are many exciting things happening right now, but I will have to talk about that later. Oh, the corduroy messenger bag that is for sale in my etsy shop would be a great bag for the fall coming up! Go check it out

Coast Guard Day

So this past weekend has been an adventure at least Friday and Saturday. Friday me and Liz went shopping and we got such great deals! I bought so many things for Kaeden for only $18.11 Here are the pictures!

So Christmas shopping for him is almost done. Saturday was Coast Guard day, the 117th birthday of the Coast Guard. We went to the picnic and had alot of fun. Unfortunately, before the picnic Kaeden had a little accident. But he is okay now, boy was I scared. He's his happy self though, so it's okay. We have all learned a valuable lesson. Keep a really really good eye on him! Here are some pictures from Coast Guard day.
