Just Hangin' around

We were out enjoying a cold but clear sunny night.  We had just enough blood flow to build a fairy house so a few laps and of course hang around.

Wine Bag

I made this quilted wine bag for my aunt Becky and though I thought it turned out cool I am thinking it would be neat to make a purse using the same method.
You can find the patten here

I love fall.  The smell of newly sharpened pencils, wet falling leaves, pumpkins and hot coffee.  We have this beauty near our backdoor and look at that sparkle of sun peeking through the trees.  Ahh just lovely!

Fridays with Baba

Fridays we are lucky that my mom Baba can drive down and take care of the kids while David and I work.  I have been sneaking quietly in to catch them playing "nap time"  "Store"  "house" as well as drawing and a million other things.  Here are a few shots I got before they realized I was here.

It's such a treat for me to come home and see the kids so happily engaged in play.  David and I know how truly lucky we are to have her help and even more than that we know how blessed the kids are to get her time and attention on Fridays!
We love you Baba!

Blog Break

Well it happened again.  Time ran away and I well.... I ran helplessly after it.  What have I been up to?  Well I have been following weight watchers on my phone with words of encouragement from Mom and from a couple of supporters at work.  I am now up to 4 miles in the running arena.  Still biking to work 2 times a week about 9 miles total round trip and I have been taking the hardest workout class I have ever encountered.  A guy named Junior who in our home is known as Mr. OW.  David goes once a week and I go twice.  So lots of exercise and lots of point counting and not a lot of weight loss but but but.... I did not lose my girlish figure over night I am being persistent and consistent!

I have also been doing a lot of this...
Coupon clipping!!  I got a cute coupon holder from my awesome Aunt Becky that I have been using.  You can see it in the picture pink zebra  print.  I can only say this.... It is time consuming and I have not figured out how to do it well but I am improving and last week saved a total of $40.00 yeahhh... though Monday morning I realized I had not purchased bread or more importantly apples which if you read my blog you know signals a total house meltdown.  What did I learn???  In your list include not only sale items but necessities!  So that's the happs here we are plugging away!
