It seems like between raising children, taking care of a husband, projects, running, cooking, ballgames (hubs is a coach), teaching aerobics, house cleaning, and blogging there just isn't enough time in the day. So unfortunately blogging has taken a back seat for the last few days.
Good news though: I'm back with projects to share!
I know you're stoked- try to control yourselves please.
One of my many projects was a cabinet I bought over a year ago. It's just been sitting in my kitchen with no backing and no shelves with my dishes just sitting in the bottom of it sadly hoping that one day I would give them a nicer cabinet to live in.
Well- Today is that day little red dishes!
I started by nailing and gluing on a back (I had it cut to size at Meeks Lumber), and then nailing and gluing in the shelves. I then decided on a nice, pretty green for my paint color (the outside was already perfect:
With my dishes in it:
We've also been super busy with family stuff:
A birthday party for Nana. It was my wonderful father's birthday too (we had a party for him too but I forgot to pull out the camera):
Happy Birthday you guys: WE LOVE YOU BOTH SO MUCH!!!
I made homemade Carrot Cake Cupcakes w/ real cream cheese frosting and candied pecans- and they were awesome- for the party. For my dad's party I made a Pumpkin Cheesecake w/ a caramel glaze and candied pecans- can I get a YUM-YUM?!!
I decided I wanted to teach myself how to sew clothes for my sweet little ones. So this is what I've got so far:
Christmas Shirt and matching skirt/socks/bow:
This was my very first cloths sewing project ever! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
Thanksgiving shirt (I'm in the process of making a matching skirt):
What do you think: Could this stuff be sold?
So that's where I've been and what I've been doing while I was there.
I've got my 1/2 marathon coming up this Sunday. Wish me luck!
