Getting to Know Me...

copy the questions..answer them*

1. The most expensive thing hanging in my closet is.....? Probably my leather jacket (which I need to replace with a new one.)

2. Have you ever played a team sport? Never! I am so do not have an athletic bone in my body; even though my martial arts instructors tells me that yes I do.

3. If you were a bug, what kind would you be? a Caterpillar that turns into a lovely Butterfly.

4. Where on your body is the worst place to get sunburned?. I'm going to say either your boobs or your butt. Both places are pretty uncomfortable to burn. I got both burned in a tanning bed years ago. You don't know how bad an itch can be until you burn your butt and can't scratch it in public.

5. Are you happy? Most of the time.

6. People are always abbreviating..are there any abbreviations that make your skin crawl when people use them? I think I have become immune to abbreviations at this point.

7. Do you love where you live..or could you live anywhere? I do like where we live but can't say that we love it. To be honest I really miss moving around every 3-4 years. I got so use to that being a military wife that it seems weird not to move.

8. What, if any, extreme measures do you go to to keep yourself from overeating when you're full? Nothing extreme. I have been trying to measure out all my food to ensure that I only eat 1 serving. I did really good with that for about 6 months and then fell off the wagon. I have got to get back to do it though so I can try to get the last of this weight off before my birthday in August.


  1. I don't have an athletic bone in my body, either.

  2. Cool, I should do this!

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.
