For posterity

Lincoln made this great video of Clark. I am sure that most of you won't care, but for those of you who do care, enjoy.

Me and My Boys

I really wish I had photoshop so I could take our heads and rearrange them to make the best picture. These were actually taken on Christmas. I feel like Clark has changed so much since they were taken. Not to mention, my hair has changed since then. I just had to post these since they are our most recent family photos. I really love having these two in my life.

Happy New Years's!

Yes, it is January and I am writing about New Year's. I just have been so crazy that I am totally not caught up and I wanted to try and fill in the gaps. This post is picture heavy, so hang in there. My cousin, Stephanie, got married on New Year's Eve and it was awesome. She and my aunt threw the party of the year. Her colors were "sparkle" and everyone was dress in sparkles and sequence. Isn't that the best idea ever? Lincoln and I had a ball dancing the night away. Dancing and eating and laughing with family and loved ones is the best want to end the year and start the next one off right!

Most of the family before the reception.

Don't mind the sweat, this was after lots of dancing.
There was a cookie and milk bar at midnight.

P.S. I made my skirt for the occasion. I just couldn't find a party skirt that wasn't super short or old lady looking.

Clark is getting so big

Seriously, who is this kid? He is so big. I can't believe it. One of his favorite things to do is empty out all the drawers and buckets the he can. He just goes for it with reckless abandonment. Clark will empty all his clothes out of their drawer, all the kitchen drawers he can reach, and all of my makeup and hair stuff in the bathroom. He can empty his toy bin (old ottoman) in seconds flat. He then climbs into it and plays hide and seek with Lincoln and me. He is such a joy!

P.S. Do you see that nasty rash around his mouth? How do I get rid of it? I have used so many ointments and lotions, but they don't seem to work. It is from his love affair with the binkie. The poor kid just has sensitive skin like his mom. If there is any secret weapon that has worked for you, let me know.

So You Think You Can Sew

Well, I obviously didn't make it to the final round in the sewing competition, or else I would be posting a project right now. I had so much fun and I learned so much. It is sort of ironic that I didn't make it to this round since this is the only round that I have more than one day to do my project. I have been so busy the month of January, adding these projects in the mix has been crazy. My busy schedule has only made my blogging suffer. I never really wanted my blogging to cause me any guilt, and it shows with how relaxed I am with posting. I mostly wanted to thank all of you for your wonderful support and encouragement. I am new to the sewing scene and I really felt the love with my little projects. I have loved sewing and I plan to continue doing it. I promise to share some of my stuff, if you promise not to get mad when me blogging lacks in posts.

Anyways, thank you all for your support. I couldn't of made it as far as I did without you, literally, I could not of made it without the votes. There is one more round of competition, so still vote for your favorite.

Urban Cowgirl

This is the "sew something you can wear" portion of my SYTYCS challenge. Let me tell you, this was a challenge. I thought I would be all cool and show how even adults can wear ruffles. Well, I am not so sure anymore. I basically sewed this skirt with my seem ripper in my lap!! I know that basically goes against the idea of entering a challenge with a title asking me if I can sew, but whatever. I had a great time and I am SHOCKED that I even made it this far. I named this skirt after the fabric line from Moda that I used for the top and bottom ruffles. They are from the "Urban Cowgirl" line. Don't you just love this fabric? I do. If you also love the skirt, be a doll and vote for me here. Thanks for all your support it has been so much fun!
