Since I last blogged.............................

Wow I can't believe I'm saying this and I'm not going to say it too loud, but the house is clean the laundry is done, the two youngest are asleep and I actually have a little time to kill so I thought I'd do a little blog post.

Since I last blogged.............................................

* We've been to the doctor 13 times, emergency room once (we are all fine).

*Managed to get through the first 3 weeks of the kids being out of school.

*Planned a family reunion for 30 something people in the middle of no-where.

*Have done absolutely nothing crafty, wait I painted the front door (can you guess?) black! Ok, so my husband painted it but I hung a cute little wreath on it.

*Looked into buying a bigger house, but realized soon it still wasn't in the budget.

*Became a Great Aunt, wow that makes me feel old, speaking of old I also turned 33!

*Haven't lost one stinkin pound even though I go walking (fast, sorta) for an hour every day at 6:00 in the morning.

*Learned how to make home-made flour tortillas (maybe that's why I haven't lost anything).

*Had the opportunity to play my flute at the funeral of my cousins husband who died of a horrible disease called Stiff Person Syndrome, you can read their story here.

*Had a whole lot of solicitors come to my door and of course they all have to ring the door bell to wake up any kids that might be sleeping.

*Realized (not that I didn't before) what a wonderful husband I am and how lucky I am to have him and our 4 beautiful children.

*Bought a used car for my husband since out of his carpool of 5 he is the only one that hasn't been laid off.

*Counted my blessings!!!

*Got DISH - maybe that's the real reason I haven't blogged for like 2 months, I REALLY like TLC. My favorite show - 19 and counting, I don't care what anyone says, they are amazing.

*Moved the baby out of our room into his sister's room. For some reason, that is always tough on me.

*Didn't win one single prize at my husbands work party, my kids didn't realize that I was just as disappointed as they were.

*Missed hearing from all of you!

And there you have it, a little of what I've been up to the last two months.

6:00 AM???? You are good. Last night it crossed my mind to get up early this morning but I didn't and I should have.

I have missed your tutorials and ideas.

Hey girl! You sure have been busy! Glad to hear that things are good in your home. Thanks for the update! I loved reading all that went on in the past couple months. (I love 19 and Counting too!)

YAY! Nicole's back! I've wondered how you've been doing but didn't want to be a blog stalker! Just being a mom and taking care of our kids keeps us sooooo busy. Glad to hear what you've been up to. My life's been pretty boring so I haven't been blogging much. I work, tend Brianna's babies, go to bed and that's about all I have the energy for right now, sad but true. Oh well, I'll take boring over drama any day, lol.

I am so glad that you updated your blog! I always love reading it! Glad that things are going well, and that you are all still alive after going to the doctor 13 times! Wow, you have been way to busy to blog! Now, I need to go update my blog.... it's been over a month since I posted anything. :-)

Nice to have you posting again, and you have been just a "tad" busy.

ASHLEE said...

Nicole, it is good to hear what you have been up too!! I look forward to your crafty posts and was having withdrawals! I had to ask Carlynn if you were doing ok. We both have been waiting for a new post! Wink, Wink! You have been a busy woman though and I understand! Looking forward to what crafty thing you make/come up with next!

CJ said...

Hi there Nicole,
I love your blog sight and have a silly question about your cell phone gadget purse. Where do you find the swivel ring? I got the lanyard hook but cna't find the ring.
Thanks

Nicole said...

CJ, hopefully you will see this. I'm pretty sure the hook and the ring came in the same package, but if yours did not, I would check in the jewelry section of any crafty type store to see if they have something that would work! Good luck, let me know how it goes!

Mimi Sue said...

Hey Nicole. I couldn't find your email but I want to talk to you about selling your house. My daughter is looking for a starter house. Don't know if they could afford yours but would like to talk to you about it. I am in the 1st ward and those houses in that tract are sure cute. Hope it all works out for you.

Hope all is well. I've been thinking about you. Maybe you went private along with Becca but didn't delete this blog. Cindy

You have been very busy! Love your blog. Would love a chance to win the fabric that went to make the blanket and block with ribbon. Thank you.

Hey? Where are you?

Deanna said...

This probably isn't the right place to leave this, but I couldn't find a direct e-mail.

I have been making bags based on your Mill House Tote like crazy. What a nice design idea. Thank you for sharing it.
