Dear Diary…I made a messenger bag!! and other stuff


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!

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.

Sophia had her first day of soccor last Sat and it was fun to watch her participate. It suprises me that she is a bit shy.  But she is a good runner!

My "on the go" photo of the week!

Watching sister. He cant wait to join in on the running.

Boy in a bag.

This is the grey dove nesting in our front porch.  I had to take the picture through our window screen so she wouldnt get scared and fly away.

I actually made these!!! I am so proud. They arent perfect but they are undeniably pants.  Right?
Maybe there is a little D. Diva in me after all.

I am so frustrated with the photo uploading.  It is taking away some of the fun.  If any one has some advice please share.  It seems odd that it is not easier to move the photos around my post easier.  Also what is all this HTML stuff.  Its like a foreign language.  My husband is taking Spanish 1.  I speak fair spanish.  I keep looking at him like "duh dont you get it" I am sure that is what is like for you all who have been doing this awhile.  Any I am here to practice today.

We went to the Fair the other day.  My daughter loves all the rides!

Oh we all love the cotton candy.  They dont make it fresh anymore:-(

Ok so tonight loading photos seems to be working much better.  It is incredible slow!!  With all the fantastic blogs out there you would think that this would be a pretty high tech easy thing to do.

Buenos Noches!


So my husband says "any new blog updates?"...I say "I havent figured out how to have enough time to do everything I want to do" in a really whining voice. "One sentence is all you need"

ok, ok, ok.

I am a procrastinating perfectionist. I feel like if I cant post a fantastic idea with lots of cool pictures I shouldnt do it at all. I am trying not to be like this with everything!!!

So here are a few pictures of late

We harvested our first home grown tomato

We went to the fair and had a great time!
