Oh My Goodness!!

April 13, 2012

Has it really been 2 months since I posted last?

This year I wanted to change and I think God heard me. This year has been a whirlwind. It has been a crazy wonderful change. I have been improving my health and fitness, going to church and now have two part-time jobs. There is also many other opportunities in the making.

We celebrated two birthdays last week and here is our celebration of my youngest son.


Happy Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2012

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. Here are a few of the things I made today to celebrate the day…

This morning I made toast with a egg heart in the middle. These are so fun, but I think I need to invest in a heart cookie cutter.
This afternoon Malia and I made Cheery Fudge.

I got this idea off of Pinterest… I love that site. It is easily made with a bag of white chocolate chips melted and stirred into a jar of cherry frosting. I added chocolate chips on the bottom and top.

My husband surprised me with a great lunch from a local burrito place, it was delicious even though it blew my calorie count completely out of the water.

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope it was full of love.

Trying something out…

January 24, 2012

I am just not on the computer much anymore, sad I know. I am on my iPad though and decided to try writing a post on here. Crazy life here, but we are now to the count down to the end of hockey, only about a month left. I am also excited for spring as I get to help the zoo out with the animal encounters for the school groups that come through. On the down side my job at the airport maybe leaving or changing to a new company, hopefully we found something out there soon.

On the craft front I have not been doing much, but I do have 2 art boards to make and 6 flower girl dresses to make.

That is about it here.


Merry Cristmas

December 20, 2011

We are well into the hockey season, which finds us busy 3-6 nights a week from Oct-Feb. I do not mind all the hockey games and driving. This last weekend we got to go out to Pierre and visit the SD capital. They have the inside of it beautifully decorated for Christmas.

I am hoping everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday season.

In A Funk…

November 6, 2011

I have been in a funk as of lately. Now that I think of it I think it has been almost a year. It is not good but it seems the harder I try the harder it gets to reverse. My whole yearning to craft and make stuff is gone. The joy is gone the satisfaction is gone. I have always been an artsty person and I am not feeling that way. I love to feel different and out of the box and I am feeling not that. I keep praying it changes I love who I was and yes there are some things that have changed, but not everything. My heart is in the country and I need to get there. Lately I can not get enough of the country. That weekend in WI was so wonderful. I could have stayed there forever… there is so much peace there and I connect out there. Last weekend we spent Sunday driving in the country and shoot riffles and if I did not have to go to the bathroom so bad we would have stayed out there till the sun went down. The guys have such an advantage in this area.

Well until the next time…
