Memorial Day.

We started off with a 5k fun run/walk. Ethan came with me and did SO great. I must say, I ended up walking more than running. :( Last year at this time I was running 7 miles. I wish I had NEVER stopped. Looks like I'm back to square one. After the run the Mechams took Ethan with them to Mt. Charleston. We (Marc and I) finally decided it would be fun to join them. I'm so glad we did. I LOVE the mountains! We had a great day, EVEN though we weren't in St. George, which is our usual tradition. Thank you military people, and loved ones that have passed on. I'm SO grateful to live in this FREE country, and SO grateful for ALL that have sacrificed SO much for it and me.

i LOVE this cowboy!

He works in the field (backyard) every morning. He rides his tractor (sit and ride fire truck) and plows the fields. He likes shoveling the manure (picking up dog poop) and talking a little dirty (butt, toots, and poop). He LOVES this. Too bad great-grandpa Wally isn't here to play cowboys with him. I'm sure Aidan would have thought he was stronger than superman! :) Thank you Papa Eric for the NEW hat, and keeping the cowboy spirit alive! :)

Sewing and Taco Soup warms my soul, literally.

Last night I hung out with some of my crafty friends, and NOW I feel SO inspired! I'm ready to start sewing and cooking again! My sweet friend Missy won 2nd prize at drawing that Quiltique was having. It was a huge basket filled with sewing supplies. Awesome. It was fun going through it with her. AND then this morning I found out I won my VERY first blog giveaway! I won the Red Blossom necklace! Missy and I are feeling pretty lucky, and we just might hit the Kentucky Derby this year! LOL Don't worry, we will sew our own outfits and hats. :)

Amy Butler...

is basically everything I want to be. Well, at least creatively! I do not know her personally, but I would imagine she is practically perfect in every way. I need to learn how to post links in my personal posts. So, that with one click you could learn ALL there is to know about this amazing textile designer. Nevermind, I think I did it! :) lol

The start of a great November!

One day I will keep this BLOG up to date! Anyhoo, here is how WE spent my birthday and Anniversary this past November!
It started off with a little Neiman Marcus bag from my brother and SIL. Bobby Brown cosmetics! Needles to say, she is awesome! :)
Then Marc and I dropped off our dudes to the Grandparents and away we went! It was WONDERFUL! AND, now we know we can leave the dudes behind from time to time. Sidenote: we thought it was hilarious that we chose Disneyland, well, mostly I chose Dland. Marc would have rather gone to Hawaii, but I'm not bathing suit ready! lol When we checked into the Dland Hotel, and they realized it was our anniversary they felt so bad they no longer had King size beds! LOL They kept explaining to us that this is more of a "family hotel" and therefore the don't have as many. We didn't care nor ask, BUT it was hilarious how bad they felt and their explanation! LOL We have been married for 14 years!!! 2 beds is a treat! hahahaha
