I sent off my part for one of those secret projects that I can't talk about yet as the peeps in charge want to keep it quiet a tiny bit longer. It's going to be SO cool! You'll see soon. Guesses are welcome, I don't think anyone is going to get it though. ;) If anyone did guess right I think I might be so inclined to send you some freebies just as soon as I receive mine.
You missed my entire family minus Dustin becoming violently ill for 3 days. You didn't miss much there.
You missed our water heater breaking Friday night and the basement flooding. Picture me wading through our belongings trying to decide what too keep and what to chuck. You didn't miss much there, but oh how I wish you all were here. You would all probably cry if I told you the amount of ribbon and scrapbook paper that got sent 6 feet under. :(
You missed me making jam with Jessi. :) Mmm Peach Raspberry, Spiced Peach and then Blueberry Peach with Dustin yesterday.
You missed me kissing my husband away for the weekend (after the flood was taken care of-he delayed his departure, what a great guy!) to go to the BYU football game with his Dad. I have heard non-stop tales of barbeque steak and what is actually going on with the disappearing bees. My FIL is one of the biologists heading up that baffling mystery. Sounds like they're getting somewhere, hooray! (Hopefully that isn't all top secret and government MIB won't show up at my door in 10 minutes.)
You missed me braving the movies with my kiddos for the first time alone. Popcorn and pop and 6 of their buddies showing up did the trick and they were good the whole time.
You missed me whooping and hollering finding out that my pattern are finally on their way back from the printer! I'll give you an exact date in a few days.
You missed my widdle baby turning 3. Oh how is that possible? Seriously-he was just 2 weeks old a couple days ago!??
Oh look-you can see a sneak of the pillows I need to share! (I've been waiting until I make the curtains..)
OH-by the way. I get a lot of nice emails. Lots of people ask "is there anything you can't do?" Scoff Snort. YES. A lot of things. The list is very long. Here is exhibit A. Fabric Designer does not equate to cake decorator.
In all honesty, I'm a bit miffed about it. Harumph. Most crafty things do come pretty naturally to me. When they were handing out the talents in Heaven, Heavenly Father decided to bless me with a crafty nature. He skipped the cake section of my brain.
I've even taken classes for it! And every time a birthday rolls around I get all excited because "this must be the birthday I get it right!". I scour the internet for hours looking at cakes and getting ideas and get all excited about digging into a pile of confection and presenting my loved one with a beautifully sculpted mound of love. But they get this:
Other things I am not blessed with? Cutting hair. But for some reason, I haven't stopped trying yet. My family is loving it. I'll keep you posted.
You also missed me picking peaches with my wee ones. Picture me atop a rickety ladder in the backyard because the little stinkers wouldn't climb it in my place no matter how many times I told them I would be there to catch them when it broke. So I climbed it in place, tossing peaches down to them with squeals of laughter. The squeals didn't come from me-I was too busy bracing myself against the deck in case the whole thing did come tumbling down but fortunately, we're all still whole.
Oh-if you click on the peach picture and save it to your computer it is actually print sized if you'd like to print it for your kitchen or something. :)
I did however fall in the shower and create a 5" round bruise on my shin that turned BLACK. It's finally easing up into a nice blueberry color after 5 days.
OH-Dustin and I are working our way through 24. We're always late to catch on to things like this which I prefer because we don't have to deal with those horrible cliffhangers! I loathe cliffhangers! So we've been watching 1 or two episodes (aka 3 or 4) each night. I have alway like Keiffer Sutherland and like him even more because if there was going to be a celebrity that looked like Dustin, it would be Keiffer Sutherland. That would be a fun post-side by side comparison. Hmmm..
All right, I've probably rambled enough so that you are wishing me to pop back into a silence. Whew! But I think we're all caught up now and I'll try not to disappear like that again for a while!
