7 Questions #20

1. Hamburger or Hotdog? (veggie versions count)  Hamburger

2. If you had to live on any other planet in our solar system, besides Earth, which would you choose? If it was actually a livable planet I'd say Saturn. The rings are cool.

3. Share a photo of an outfit that represents your personal style, please. (doesn't have to be of you) I really don't have a style. I'm stuck in more of a "these are the clothes I have to wear because I don't have any money to buy new ones and they are so old and I don't really like any of them - style". So I'm going to dream. If I could get rid of everything in my closet and start over and be ME it would start with something like this that I found on Pinterest.
4. Would you rather get ready for the day or get ready for bed? Get ready for bed.

5. You have to choose between never having eyelashes or never having eyebrows, which would you choose? Eyebrows, you can always pencil them in, right? I have super sensitive eyes and don't think I could do fake eyelashes. I can't even stand mascara.

6. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Well... since I'm 30 I feel like I'm already "grown up" and I'm a mom. If I could pick something else it would be a small scale organic farmer.

7. Do you set your clocks right on time, or a few minutes ahead or behind? Every clock except my alarm clock is set right on time. The alarm clock it usually a few minutes ahead.

And the required funny picture.... I'm digging. I was being completely serious last week that no one takes pictures of me. If I find one before the day is over I'll add it to the post.

7 Questions #19

Ok, not #19 from me but it's #19 from Gentri Lee! Stop over and check out her 7 Questions this week.

1. Bold or Understated? Understated... kind of goes along with me just liking to be in the background of the world.
2. You have to survive alone in the wild and you only get to take one thing with you. Your choices are: A Pocket Knife, a Water Bottle, or a Book. Which do you choose and why? A water bottle. I always have a water bottle in my purse, in the car or somewhere close by.
3. Thirty Two Cows, Seven Eight Chickens, How Many Didn't? Huh? Am I the only one whose brain was hurt by thinking about this? Can you tell I was and still am horrible at math?
4. Would you rather die doing one legendary act of service or do small acts of kindness that may go unnoticed every day? Small acts of kindness... more explanation of the understated thing.
5. Happiness is ________. (one word; fill in the blank) laughter. (Specifically a baby's first laugh! I just heard my daughter's first laugh last week and it was the most joyful thing.)
6. Can you laugh with out smiling? Definitely not.
7. Do you pop your knuckles? No, never figured out how people actually pop their knuckles or anything else themselves. I let my chiropractor do that for me.

Someone REALLY needs to start taking pictures of me. I am NEVER in any pictures and my husband is a photographer but I am always the only one taking family photos. Someone please bug him to take more pictures with me in them. Today you get one of my daughters on our way home from vacation... the sun was coming in her window and this was her solution. She was under there playing her handheld game system.

The Countdown

Last week, Miss L and I started counting down the days until Kindergarten started. But today she woke up to this:
My first baby, my tiny 2 1/2lb preemie, my big grown up girl started all day kindergarten today and I'm not quite sure what to do with myself. Now don't get me wrong I'm sure in a few weeks I'll have found plenty of things to do - grocery shopping, cooking, sewing, cleaning... a little nap maybe when Miss G is napping. But for today, I'm not quite sure what to do.

Office Makeover Progress

Since the girls and I arrived back home I've been giving my office(which resides in our bedroom) a budget makeover in preparation of reopening my etsy shop. Miss G is almost 4 months old and Miss L starts kindergarten soon so it's about time Mama got back to work. The first step was getting Evie moved into what is now the girl's room. Second step is getting Mama moved back into her own room without pushing the husband out. Here's a few sneak peaks of the progress that you will see when it all comes together.

I finally found a place for a handmade wedding gift we received. Almost 9 years later it finally has a safe home where I can see it!
Am I crazy that I can't wait to get back to work?

Bridges of the Midwest

As I was going through vacation photos I noticed that on the way home I kept taking pictures of bridges so I wanted to share a couple more of them with you guys.

Summer Vacation

The girls and I just spent almost the entire month of July back home with my family. We had so much fun! Little Miss G got lots of love and lots of cuddle time. Miss L had lots of playing time with her favorite aunt and I had lots of sewing time with my mom working on unfinished projects I brought along. Every time I go there lately I wonder why I ever wanted to leave.
