A Grand Adventure……

So remember when I said we were waiting for orders from the USAF for our move this summer? Well, Paul just  Skyped me from his trip and announced that our orders have officially uploaded to whatever magic military system we have been waiting for, and we now know where we are going. We have a…

Milestones and a Mom’s "Running" List….

*warning, long-ish mommy ramble. (photo credit here, this is my gym’s track, but not my photo) Paul and I have been training for a 10K we are running in at the end of March, and since we started 3 weeks ago, Isaac has been trying to run with us. Week 1, Isaac looked like a…

{photo of the day} Elementary my dear Watson….

After seeing the new Sherlock Holmes movie earlier in the year, Paul requested a Dr Watson scarf. I am actually much further along than the picture, but haven’t taken any pictures of it lately since I only take it out of my purse to knit during art history and anthropologie class. – Posted using BlogPress…

Emmie’s Phases of the Moon Project

Emmie came home today saying she needed to make a model of the phases of the moon; we came up with a paper mâché box, with a styrofoam ball spinning on a wood peg axis. There is a little knob on top that you spin to rotate the moon through its phases. And a hole…

A New Pillow

I’ve had a migraine today, so I have been pretty wiped out (I went back to bed after getting the kids out the door this morning.) and I haven’t felt like doing much. I made myself get up at get dressed at 11:00 and decided that I couldn’t waste the whole day, but wasn’t feeling…

Estate Sale Frame

I’m sorry about the rubbish photos, but I decided if I didn’t document this with my iPhone (at night) it wasn’t going to happen. (Seriously the story of most of what I do, if the big camera has to come out, it goes undocumented) I don’t know why some of the pictures are centered, and some are…

Project Run and Play, Final 5!

Oh my goodness!!! I am in the final 5 at Project Run and Play!!! I am very excited to have been chosen with all the stiff competition out there (and I know that they couldn’t choose everyone, but I was so surprise by some of the awesome looks that didn’t make the final 5 so…

Project Run and Play Week 6 "Signature Style"

Well, it’s finally here, I’ve got pictures of my signature look for Project Run and Play‘s sew along group. I’ve blooming talked about it enough, so I think I will start with the pictures, and then explain the look as I go, rather than getting long winded here at the top! Introducing my signature look,…

Finally Done.

Whew, I’m finally done with all the stuff I was trying to do for Project Run and Play! I should have definitely started sewing earlier then I did, since all told I only was able to dedicate a couple of days to it with all the other stuff I have to do. I just kept thinking…
