Projectos.

I've done quite a few projects in the last few days. Anything to pass the time, and get my mind off this diet! (I've lost 9 1/2 pounds in 6 days...oooOOO!)
While at JoAnns I found this darling orange chiffon fabric on clearance, so I grabbed some knowing I had some yellow cotton at home I could put under. I've still got to add some big belt loops at the top. I also got rid of my fear of zippers! Yeah don't worry, there's one on there as opposed to just using stretchy fabric so I don't have to have one! I'm so proud of myself.
Oh Baby. Enough said.
I got this candlestick wall sconce a while back, and finally got around to painting it. I used an antique gold and roughed up the edges a bit so it didn't look so bright. I don't know if I love it. I'll have to see how it looks with the other golds in my family room once I get home. I may repaint it using a crackle finish. We'll see.
I also got another black frame and painted it antique white. I like it. I love it. I want some more of it. I could never get sick of this frame. Maybe one day I'll have one in every color.

Ok so when I first looked at the weight you have lost I was all 91 pounds! and thought to myself so she weighs what like 10 pounds now. then I went back and was all wow... its late... I should be in bed not reading peoples blogs. So there you have it. The life of a mommy to a 4 month old. Ive decided I dont care if you dont want to be my friend because you have to. and when you get back we will hang out and you will teach me to be just like you. okay? okay. Youre the best.

So I wanna do a trade, a wipe cover and diaper container (like the little purse things you can put a few diapers and the wipes in) for some vinyl? Hows that sound? I'm totally jealous of the wt. loss. I need to get on that band wagon.

Higgs Happenin's said...

I know right? I guess I better get some boots and hat to compliment my lifestyle haha. You know whats weird tho? Since I've been married I've had nicer stuff like clothes and makeup etc then I ever had before. Weird haha it's cause my freakin' bomb of a hus lets me have anything I want.
I dunno if we will be home for Thanksgiving, we went there last year and we will be in Boise for Christmas, I think we might be in Utah for Thanksgiving but I don't know for how long and what not. I'll keep you updated!
