The 411

This is my random life. The good, the bad, and the ugly. There is no real purpose other then to share. So glad to have you on board for the ride, got your seat belt on??!

Wherever inspiration takes you...

I use to think that it was lame for stay at home moms to take up activities such as sewing, crafting, scrap booking, etc., until I myself became that mom. I am not sure what the deal is, but I find myself wanting to create all sorts of stuff from tutu's to customized wipe cases. I am trying desperately to figure out my moms sewing machine, and seem to have it pretty much under control but cannot for the life of me figure out why when I put my presser foot down, the fabric continues to bunch up and jam. The sewing machine shop said that it would cost $90 to look at it. I could buy a new one for that much!

I now find myself in the market for a combo embroidery and sewing machine. Hey, if you are going to do it up, do it up big right?

Anyway, I will continue to wait patiently for Brother to send me a machine to review! Wouldnt that be freaking awesome? Following a newbies journey with the machine?? One can wish right?

Being a rock star is hard work...

Last time I checked I was a rock star...not the celebrity style, but the mommy style. To someone I am the most awesome singer, cook, and cuddler of all time! I am a movie star, puppeteer, actor, chicken dancer, tickler, and chaser! To someone, I am the bravest, strongest, prettiest, and most talented. To someone I am the queen of apple juice and the princess of the diaper bag. Someone thinks that I know how to do everything and know all the answers. To someone, I am a rock star!

Taking up a suzie home maker hobby

I have been seeing and buying tons of these cute t-shirts with tie appliques for little boys and tots and have been dying to figure out how to make them. Well...lucky me, my mom owns a Kenmore sewing machine that is a tad dated, but if you have seen the sewing machines today they have not really changed that much. Figuring out the threading seems to be the most confusing at this point. I would like pointers!!

Anyone know what type of basic material I might need to get started? I would like to do the tie applique on a toddler t. I will show you how its done as I work through it. Here are some links where you can see what types of shirts I will be making.

I love simple shirts with fun statement pieces on them, and it just stood to reason that the simple applique style would be best. Soooooo you will get to join me in the next couple of weeks as I get together what I need and set the sewing machine up and ready to go!!!

And leaving you a totally unrelated picture of my kiddos!

Because I am random...

Why would someone friend you on FB only to turn around and defriend you?? It's creepy, and makes me paranoid! Stop it!

This is the gorgeous and yummy Tres Leches cake to celebrate mothers day!

This weekend was beautiful and I spent most of it at home on the couch. Funny story...The Warden finally put together the kids Little Tikes wagon, and I decided to take it for a spin with both kiddos strapped in. About half way out, I hear this dragging sound...the freaking wheel feel off! (thinking to self) How the heck am I going to drag of carry this monstrosity of a wagon back home??! Bean refused to get out by the way! I decided to send Monkey back to get The Warden while Bean and I stood stranded on the side of the road!! It was hilarious, although you really had to be there!! hahaha!!!

Wondering if this timeout spot is really working...

When did my little girl turn into a tween??!

Dude, what the heck happened?

Because I am random...

Its freaking hot in Houston today!

I bought new brightly colored socks today...okay my mom bought them for me!

I made baked chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, and corn on the cob, but I only ate the mashed potatoes.

Bean loves Ghost that bad?

There is this Greek yogurt commercial with a cow/bull drenched in yogurt, and it grosses me out.

A beautiful pic of the Warden and Bean!
