Sophia started preschool. She goes tuesday and thursday from 9am –noon. Her teachers are Miss Deb and Miss Patsy.
She loves it. She already has a friend, Talia. They were holding hands when I showed up the second day.
My little baby girl is now a big girl!

I am now on a sewing kick. I have along way to go to be “good” but I am awful proud of myself for what I have done so far. I have shown pictures of the green pants and the messenger bag. Here are a couple more pictures of my two latest.
The first is the popular “pillowcase dress”. I love the fabric and it was a good starter project but I don't love the lines on it.
This next one is my absolute favorite. It is THE MARKET SKIRT from this blog. (My favorite blog right now). It isn’t perfect but it is cute!
What is next on the agenda????

Thanks to this great tutorial. I made an awesome bag. Now the bag itself is cool but. What makes it even better is that…I MADE IT ALL BY MYSELF!!!
I have been playing with my sewing machine a lot and even was able to borrow an embroidery machine from my mother in law and now have too many projects in my mind! I now stay up way too late!
The Bean got a haircut. It is way shorter than what I asked for but it is still very cute and in a week or two it will be perfect. She is such a big girl!
I also made the best dinner in my life the other night. Now I know its hard to go to wrong with Filet Mignon but I have overcooked some potentially really good food many a times.
I love Trader Joes!!
And what great dinner would be complete without dessert. If you haven’t tried this stuff it is well worth it. It is low in sugar and fat. I think it might actually be healthy for you!
Have a great day!

Yeah I found an easier way to blog. I figured it had to be out there somewhere. Thanks to a post on this blog I pieced some info together from all the comments and came out a happy camper.
First day at the water/sand park.

I lost all my photos of my baby girl when my hard drive went out on me. It cost me A LOT of money to get them "retrieved". I had to send my hard drive some where in Georgia where they had a "safe room" to open it and try and get the photos. Luckily they got them and I finally put them back on my computer ( with a new hard drive AND a new external hard drive ) so I dont have to go through this again. So any way I started looking at baby pictures of the girl and I am just in amazement at how fast time goes by. It reminds me to really enjoy what is left of my boy's first year. They are only babies once.
Arent they beautiful!

Even though someone insensitivily termed it an "ego blog". No one has to read if they dont want. But in this day of reality shows and technology I THINK it is cool to use this as a creative communication tool, a cyber journal, a place to share and learn. Thanks to the womens blogs I have been reading for inspiring my mind to think creatively.

What a beautiful weekend. The weather was gorgeous.

Now THE BEAN continues in rare form with the big "WHY" s. We read Hansel and Gretal for the first time today. What a depressing story. But I guess it ends ok. Bean didnt really understand the whole idea. Why was the boy in the cage? Why did the girl push the witch into the oven? What happened to her? Where did the kids mommy go? Did she turn into the witch? Oh the expanding mind of a three year old.
I made mini muffin meatloaf out of turkey. They were sooo good and sooo easy. the credit goes to http://www.savingdinner.com/ I give this site huge props. I am really just learning to cook and they have given me many great recipes. Anyway, meatloafs...they are definately added to rotation. Who knew that ground turkey at Costco is less than $3/lb. Of course you have to buy 4lbs but hey thats why we have freezer.
Well they are about to name the new Celebrity Apprentice and I am a reality show junky. Have a good night.

But, I am a wife, a mom, a christian, a physical therapist, a gemini, a brunette, a thinker, a talker, a doer, a procrastinator, a perfectionist in theory.
I have led a life as humor filled and heartbreaking as anyone else and am willing to share it... well most of it.
Happy Thursday, May 20th, 2010.
