Snow and curtains.

First a note to Mother Nature.

Mother Nature: It is a week before Christmas and there is still no snow. Hurry it up because my outside decor will look much better covered in a white blanket of cold glittery goodness. 

Next subject: curtains. 

I really really wanted yellow chevron striped curtains for my living room windows. Well I did until I saw the price tag for the fabric of $9 a yard and I need 20 yards, so that wasn't going to happen. I have since decided to make my own. They won't have chevron stripes because that's too much work, but they will have really wide horizontal stripes. I'm hoping to start working on them today, and once they're done and hopefully a success I will share how I did it. Total this whole project should cost around $30 which makes this girl extra happy.

The Daily Dish.

On Wednesday I will be on a local morning show called the Daily Dish. I am extra excited and nervous all at the same time. From now until the show goes on I will be preparing my cake and cupcake stands. I worked on projects all day long today so that I could take it easy tomorrow and not stress, but knowing myself I will add 15 more projects to my list by 10 am tomorrow. 

Alright off to finish the laundry that has now taken me 6 days to finish. Yep just in time to start again. 

This was the tree our first Christmas together.

I'm finally starting to feel normal again, still have a hard time breathing but breathing is overrated right? Yeah, I think so too. Now I just need my motivation back.As I was staring at Christmas tree today (yes it all up and decorated and I will post pictures later) I decided that I want to start a tradition of taking a family picture in front of it every year. Well in order for that to happen I need to paint the wall and finish my curtains so tonight I will begin that process. Painting our little home has turned into a much bigger process than I first thought, which is why it's taken me forever and a day to begin. Here is the plan for tonight:

-Remove and replace old caulking
-fill holes
-clean walls
-start painting the trim

Fingers crossed I get it all done.

The following pictures have absolutely nothing to do with the above.

Last night I was going back looking through all of our pictures and it reminded me how much fun we've had together over the last 4 years. Oh. My. Goodness. I can't believe we been together for 4 years and married for 3. I love Husby so so much, all these pictures bring back the best memories.

This sickness needs to be gone.

So I may not be as sick as I was yesterday but I still feel like the only sensible thing to do is lay on the couch. My plans, however, were interpreted when 3 of my 4 dogs escaped and the neighbor came knocking on the door to let me know. Imagine me in my bright pink robe my hair all over the place and my most attractive gray sweats (yeah they are Husband favorite) walking down the street trying to yell with my man voice at my dogs to get in the backyard. Thankfully my neighbor helped me gather my animals and I was back inside, on my couch in no time. About 30 min later I heard cracking noises and got up to see what it was, yep my pet dinosaur apparently LOVES walnuts because I found 4 of these lovely little messes around the house. I was just thinking how I wanted to spend my day cleaning. Thanks dog.

On Saturday I participated in little holiday boutique. It wasn't anything big and exciting but it meant I got to spend 4ish hours hanging out with Misso and that always a good time. Below are pictures from the boutique and the little raccoon at the end, well Miss Misso made that herself out of clay. I love it.

Today my almost gone sinus infection morphed into something more terrible and I don't any plans to move from the couch. Ok, I take that back, I want my Christmas tree and if Husband agrees to go tonight I will move from this couch and make myself somewhat presentable to the world.

Fingers crossed tomorrow I get something more done than watching 14 episodes of Kitchen Nightmares.

Baby Lifestyles Magazine Holiday 2011

Today has been so so busy. 

There is a holiday boutique I'm participating in tomorrow so I've been trying to prepare for that plus get all of my holiday stuff done for my shop. I was hoping to have all that done last week but my supplies came in 3 weeks late!! So now I'm running around like a mad woman trying to get everything done. 

One of my stands was in Baby Lifestyles Magazine Holiday issue. You can go check it here and then pop on over to Michelle's blog for all of the party details.
