Getting to Know Me

Sorry for the lack of posts last week. I will try to do better but I can't promise anything. Here is the next installment of getting to know you from Mannland.

1. If you could star in any movie genre..what would it be..romance..horror..comedy..suspense or action?
I think romance - something along the lines of Gone with the Wind.

2. Do you recycle? Not as much as we did in GA. Here you have to pay for the recycling to be picked up at your home. Our elementary school has recycling containers for newspaper & magazines that they earn money for so we do recycle those things.

3. Have you ever been to a strip club? Yes but it has been about 25 years.

4. Do you have a nickname? Yes but only my family uses it and I have always hated it.

5. What's a name you can't stand to be called? I can't think of one.

6. What are your Summer staples? Flip flops & sandals. I just love them when I cannot be barefoot.

7. What was the last thing you bought for yourself? This pair of cute flats.

8. Are you happy with your boob size? NO! I want my cute little 36 full B's back. Currently I am a 32G - 34DDD. What the heck?! I don't want to be that size. It makes it so hard to find shirts that fit and I don't want to have to wear pullovers all the time because button ups don't button well.

Guess who is Sewing...

Look what I made!!! I have not done anything creative in a very long time. Don't ask me what made me decide to give sewing a go again because I have no idea. The pattern for this bag is from Alicia Paulson and is called Jane Market Bag, you can find it on her website for only $6. It was so easy to follow the instructions. I would definitely recommend that you have a larger cutting surface and ruler to make it easier to cut the pieces out. My little 12x12 cutting surface and 6x13 clear ruler made cutting the pieces slightly difficult but not impossible.

Don't you just love the red fabric! I purchased the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a couple of years ago to make an apron and since I had some left over thought I would use it for my first bag. The pattern calls for the use of 4 different fabrics but I decided to just use the 3. The inside of the bag is lined with the same black and white check fabric I used on the handles. These are so cute & are a great size so I will definitely …

Holy...Hot Flash... Batman!!!

It appears that I am definitely in menopause at least according to my recent blood test. I've been going through perimenopause for the last several years. You know hot flashes, night sweats and crazy cycles, etc. In the past twelve months I've only had 2 periods and the hot flashes have been worse than ever!

Life On An Even Keel...

On An Even Keel is an idiom that means - calm and not likely to change suddenly, balanced. This is how I want my life to be. It use to be this way 15 years ago and I'm not sure exactly what happened to change that position. Everything about my life feels completely out of balance & so crazy and I cannot take it any more! Some way, some how we have got to turn things back around and get on an even keel again!!! 

My plan for 2011 is to find that balanced and calm life again. I am working on cleaning out and getting rid of stuff. Only keeping what means something to us. I want to get started working on decorating our house and turning it into a HOME and not just a house. And I want to get our finances in a better place. As always I am open to any suggestions anyone may have to assist in this change.
