Friday Fun and my new project… {5/27/2011}

Happy Friday ~

I hope you have some wonderful plans for this holiday weekend.  I am certainly looking forward to three days of bliss.  Okay…. maybe I am not expecting ‘bliss’ but at least I will have three straight days to enjoy my babies.  Baby Diva is growing up so fast!  She is four months old now, and started eating cereal this week.  She is consistently rolling from her back to front {hasn’t quite figured out how to get back onto her back though, LOL}

Ms. Diva has decided the only boots to wear are these pink ones that her daddy got her at Tractor Supply.  I think the main appeal is not the little horsies on them, but the fact that she can put the on all by herself.  {and kick them off by herself too}  I have the cutest picture to share with you next Wednesday of her with her boots and her stuffed horse from her Big Bro.

Now onto the Friday Fill-in…

1. This week I fed Baby Diva her first cereal, got attacked by a tree while running {for the first time since having Baby Diva}, washed the GSD 3 times {someone needs to tell him that even if it is over 90 degress he needs to stay out of the yucky pond}, surived grocery shopping, and that is about all I can think of right at the moment.

2. Big Bro returns to Texas from spending the school year with his mom in Nebraska.  I am pretty sure that Ms. Diva is going to be his shadow, because she pretty much was stuck to him when he was home for Christmas and now she is even more mobile.  He doesn’t stand a chance, LOL!  I can’t wait to see him, and I now that Mr. SD is super excited for him to be home too.

3. It’s all aboutMe.  Oh… you want me to be serious… Okay.  It is all about paying off the debt at the moment.  I am working really hard on not spending on my crafts.  Which is super hard to do, when I have the fabric hording tendencies I have.  I decided to go through and reorganize my scraps using a modified version of Bonnie at Quiltville’s scrap system.  It is ‘almost’ like shopping at the store.  Not as fun, but it is guilt free.

4. I ran in the sun.

5. I demand nice weather for this weekend’s bar-b-q.  I would demand that I get some serious sewing time in, but… I think that would be a little on the self centered side {going along with question 3 above}

6.  Life’s path, it’s filled with plenty of characters, trouble and strife, joy and hope.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to watching last night’s So You Think You Can Dance {also know as SYTYCD} tomorrow my plans include laundry, cleaning, picking up Big Bro at the airport, and hopefully some sewing time, and Sunday, I want to celebrate family birthday’s with family!

Here is my newest sewing/quilting project.  It came from wanting to do something with these left over scraps from the Moda Fresh Flowers Jelly Roll I used for Ms. Diva’s quilt.  The pattern is called Liberated Wedding Rings by Anita at Bloomin’ Workshop {small world, Anita is in the same area outside of Seattle I grew up in before moving to Texas}.  Anita started a Flickr group you can join if you like to join this quilt along.

Five Question Friday from My Little Life:

1. Do you apologize to your kids?  Yes.  It is your responsibility to model proper behavior to your children.  If you don’t apologize for something to them, how can you expect them to apologize to others.  It is just like saying please and thank you.  Manners are manners.  And everyone should be treated the same.  Children, friends, parents, mentally ill, the homeless.  {getting off my soapbox now}

2. What color are your nails right now?  Au natural ~ Who has time for nail polish?  Plus, it never lasts because I am always outside doing stuff.

3. When you were growing up, how difficult was it for you to stay home from school sick? (As in, did you have to vomit or just say “I don’t feel good”.)  Just say that I didn’t feel good we enough most of the time.  But… if you stayed home from school that meant no T.V. {unless you did vomit and proved you were sick}, and you didn’t get to do anything.  You had to just lay on the couch all day.  Cured us of saying we were sick if we weren’t, LOL!

4. When is the last time you bought a new comforter for your bed?  My comforter is over 5 years old {probably older than that, LOL}, but Mr. SD’s {we don’t share blankets, LOL} is just a few months old.  I finally found one that he would let me trade out for his old ratty one.  Thank you Lord!!!!!  I have been trying to find the ‘perfect’ one for a year now.  Talk about being a Goldilocks of comforters.

5. Favorite website(s)?  The Fat Quarter Shop, Sewing and Quilting blogs, I am currently in love with Twitter and finding giveaways to enter.
