I've been thinking

A lot lately... Thinking about all the things that I am excited about, and all the wonderful things that are happening in our life right now, and I know, without a doubt that the Lord is playing a huge role in our lives at this moment, and I couldn't be happier.

Which leads me to this, my husband has a cousin, well he has more than one, but I am talking about a specific one who I am very fond of. I stalk her on Facebook, and her blog, I don't think she realizes how much I love her.

Recently she and her husband announced that they were pregnant, which I predicted( I totally did, right before Christmas ask my husband!) But they recently had a scare when she was admitted to labor and deliverery, but Thankfully she and the baby are doing fine. Okay now back to way I brought up this cousin. She has this awesome blog, you can check it out HERE! She did this way awesome blog on a very awesome idea.

Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue, I love this idea, and I am totally going to take her up on her challenge, and I would love to see how creative all my readers can be. I will get my post up by Saturday, and I would love to see what you come up with.

Also, you may just find out what my totally awesome news is! Eeek! I cannot wait. I hope you are finding the month of April to be as beautiful as mine. Also, I want you all to know, I like the posting pictures idea, perhaps I can find a way to work in a photo a week, or photo Wednesday.. I'll think of something... Stay tuned!

I know I know, this has completely gotten out of control... I have slacked so bad, and it got to the point where after missing so many days, that I didn't even want to look at my blog... Then it was brought to my attention when I recieved a few disgruntled messages, in regards to my lack of blogging. :( fail.

Forgive me, I truly have been super busy, and it has been for a good reason. I promise, I wish I could devoulge the whole thing, but unfortunately I have been advised not to, and I don't want to jinx my good fortune.

But, I PROMISE!!!! it is an amazingly wonderful secret and that you will be so glad that I waited to share it(I hope).

I am looking forward to the Easter holiday, and I hope you find joy in your hearts, and pride in knowing our Savior loved us all enough to give his life. I feel a little warm inside as I type this. I will attending a passover dinner this week, and learning the signifigance of passover, and the important role it still plays in many peoples lives. I cannot wait.

Shame on Sarah

Yeah... I know... In my defense, I have been over the moon busy. Seriously. But, with all of the happenings I have been crafting, and getting things made. I am so thrilled with the things that I have been doing lately.

I thought I would share just a small project I am working on. Since I have been attending SOOOO many baby showers, and I know there are many in the future. I have been working on these adorable little pieces of flare, to a plan 3-ply diaper cloth/ "burp" cloths.

I was going to show you the link to this way cute item... But, for the life of me I cannot find it again, I can't remember what I used to search for it. Ugh. I hate that.

But, it is super adorable, and I perhaps I will have to do a tutorial now..

I think I need a vacation

Isn't that what they say when you move your furniture around?

Well, I am either wanting to travel, or I just really wanted to move things around in my house. I have managed to move every single piece of furniture in my house at least once in the past month. In my defense, I moved them because spring cleaning had to be done, and we painted. This being said. My bed needed to be moved, 1. to be vacuumed under, and 2. because I was craving change.

I must say, I love that it is on an angle now. Most of you probably don't know what it looked like before, but let me just tell you. I LOVE my bed at an angle. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to pull it off. It really brings the room together.

I think I need more pillows on my bed. Just a thought. Oh I think I have some extra fabric laying around.

Shame on me.

Yeah.. I know. I missed yesterday, but cut me some slack, it was a heck of a busy day.

If you were here, I would offer you some of these awesome brownies I made! They are super yummy!

I had enough time between, cleaning, laundry, and tending to little children... to make some fabulous brownies!

This post is obviously gonna be short and sweet, but I have another one for today coming quickly!

Happy Thursday!

about fregin' time!

SWo, for those small few of you have been to my house... you have probably noticed the big red magnet board that has been sitting on the floor next to my bathroom for almost two. whole. years...Yes, I am proud to say, it is finally hanging up on my newly painted walls. I have a before picture.. But, it's on my lap top, which is currently out of comminsion, due to the fact that the power cord is no longer charging my laptop.. sigh.

Not only is it up, and lookin' awesome, but I wanted to take the moment to brag about my awesome DI find. The picture frames that would a hidious gold when I purchased them. I sprayed them gray, and hung them with the letter of our last name. Oh and to explain the '9'... I wanted a random number to hang on the wall, but if we are scrapping the bottom of the barrel for a reason.. We did get married in '09.

Yeah... I think we will just stick with the random number factor. It looks great. I have been so busy crafting and doing a few things around my house. I am started to feel like a little home maker.

Awww... isn't dat tute? Yeah, so on to Wednesday, I have a new little girl that I will be tending and I cannot wait!

into the 'spring' of things!

Oh man, even though it snowed like crazy yesterday, we still managed to have a nice enough day that I went outside and pulled a few weeds. It felt great! I have been so motivated lately to get things done around my house. I have litterally crafted myself out of crafts... I am now looking for new projects. So, if you have any suggestions, please tell me.. I am dying. I want to make SOMETHING!!!

Now onto the photo, I know what you came for... My powerful charisma right? At least I hope.

The photo today is that of a little peek of a craft I made. I can't show it all the way yet, since it is a gift for someone... BUUUUTT... next week, I will post a photo of the whole thing... unless said person doesn't like the gift... then I will be featuring a garbage can. Although, it would be terribly rude of said person, to hate said gift. At least in front of my face.

I hope she likes it... Happy Monday, here is my kick off to a great week!

what the snow?

Oh good heavens, could we get any more snow? That was retorical, of course we could... But I wish we wouldn't..

At least I have a little bit of spring in my house, in fact I just picked up the cutest little flower pot, with beautiful pink flowers in it. Yes, Spring is in the air, I cannot wait for it to stop snowing, and for the warm weather to stick. Although, not at the risk of the spring dropoff causing a flood. That would be no beuno.

So, on to a new week, and new blogs, and a whole lot of adventures.

GAH! Fail....

I know, I know, I said I would be on here to post another blog for Friday... then today got away from me.. I left my camera in the car, and although I asked my dear husband a few times to go grab it... alas... it was too late.

But recap, Friday was a great day, I was so busy, babysitting, and then we had some friends over, I spent nearly 7 hours crafting with my bestie Bri... Wow!

It was soooo much fun, and I got a lot accomplished.. although it has to wait since some of the items are gifts.. or tutorials. Either way, it's good!

I want to post a couple of photos today, in honor of my bestie Bri, Congratulations on your little girl, we cannot wait to meet her!

Bri is probably gonna kill me, since the first photo I am putting up is of her standing and waiting while I test the lighting... lol, she is too cute. I, needless to say, LOVE it. Too cute!

I was gonna post an awesome photo today, but I guess, I will post that one tomorrow with my other photo... Oh man, are you guys lucky, I must really love ya if I am willing to go to such great lengths to lug around my camera, and I tell you what... it is not a light camera.

Alright, welcome to April, altough my welcoming is a little late... Don't hate me.

I gotta button, yeah, yeah!

So, obviously my blog is still about infertility, the best part is that lately I haven't been obsessed about my broken women parts. But I am glad to be sharing a new button with you today.

Utah Infertility Awareness.

They are having their 2nd annual event, on April 30th this year, and the best part is all the fantastic prizes that they are giving away. Including an amazing 50% off of an IVF treatment-I hope I win that one!!!

You should definately check it out, even if you got mad baby makin' skills, the infertiles in your life would love the support, and to know that people around them care.

Almost a year ago, I had my HSG test.. as you may recall THIS post.

Shortly finding out that I was born with a birth defect, my mother-in-law was so kind she bought me this beautiful willow tree figurine. Truthfully, I don't trip over myself for these things, but this I love so much. I felt over whelming support even though what I had gone through was life changing, and basically stated that the chances of us getting pregnant were slim.

I am not saying go purchase this for every single person in your life who may be suffering from infertility, or who is just not having a good day. Just letting them to know you love them, and support them, just saying it. Is enough.

Happy first day of April, I will start my photo a day, later this evening. I cannot wait!

Also, remember to check out my new button, and to check out Utah Infertility Awareness website!
