So I thought I'd share some of the "window shopping" I've been doing lately! So here's the treasures I've found lately:
At ReannaLil y Designs she gives a great tutorial for free motion quilting! I'm thinking I'll try this very soon....
At Ruffles and Stuff I found these cute, awesome frames! I think my sister and law will be trying them out!
See ya next week for another Wednesday Window Shopping!

I mentioned it to Luke and for Christmas this is what he made me!

Well, about a week ago I noticed that one of them had been in the same spot for a few days... and he was looking a little bloated. And he didn't move when I tapped on the glass. I figured I had killed it! So Friday I told Luke I'd puke if I had to get it out of there. Well, apparently the frog was not dead. Yeah, Luke went to grab (yeah I'm not going into that...) the frog out of the tank and he moved! So I still have two frogs!
Here's my frogs:
So they (Hallmark) says that they are BOTH boys, but Luke and I are wondering...... I guess we'll find out in a few weeks!
Anyway, I was very happy to find out that I may not have the black thumb I thought I did! hehe

Christmas presents: I made two beautiful quilts for my mom and mother in law this Christmas.
It was a total challenge for me because I've never made a whole quilt by myself before! Yes you read the right, I did EVERYTHING! I cut the cloth, I sewed the blocks, I sewed the border on, I squared the top with the bottom, I even machine quilted them, and I put the binding on! (I know that sounded a lot like the Little Hen) I'm so proud of them! Oh and on one of the I even sewed some buttons on! I'll show you my new favorite idea for quilting/tying quilts!
Fitness programs: Ok one of my favorite blogs to read is Momedy. And on January 1, 2010 she is starting her Momedy throwdown!!
Basically she has a bunch of different fitness categories and you can pick any or all to participate in. Like, push ups, wall sits, running different distances, weight loss, or tons more! In each category she explains the how to, the "goal" and a great story. I've been looking for a program like this for awhile! :) I don't know if I'll report my "accomplishments" to Momedy or not but I'll try to do it on here. I'm excited for this because of course the gyms in our apartment complexes have been full the last couple of nights.... Dang people and their New Year's resolutions! That's ok I give it a week and I'll have the gym back to myself! So int he mean time I thought I'd work on this program and see where I'm at!
Another fitness program I've found lately is the Presidents Challenge!
I promise this year I'll get better at blogging here and on my personal blog. So bug me if I need to blog! :) Thanks guys!

Be prepared to cry and get really upset at the human race.
I had to watch my best friend in high school go through this. She came to school with welts on her back from a rubber hose, with bruises all over (legs, arms, etc), and with goose eggs on her head. Yes the police were told. Yes child services was involved. Did it do any good? No. They came in and interviewed the parents. The parents told the CS workers that my friend was on drugs. My friend took a drug test. Negative for drugs. They still believed the family and after one day of instigating this case were gone. Yes my friend continued to live in this situation. It makes me sick to see this. It breaks my heart to see this. It bothers me to no end that someone can take their child, their FLESH and BLOOD and do this to them. The only just desserts there will be is in the after life, because they will have to answer for what they have done.
I can't say anymore right know my blood is boiling.

So for this week everyday I'm going to feed my husband dinner.
Yes I stink at that. We both work full time and it doesn't help that our schedules are so different. I work 30 mins away from home from 8 to 5 and he works 10 mins away from 10 to 7. So by the time he gets home I'm ready for bed and he wants to stay up until 12 or 1 because he can sleep in in the morning, which I can't do... But I'm going to do it! I will have a meal prepared for him every night this week! I'm excited!
I'm also trying to fix this problem by doing freezer meals! Adri (the girl I carpool with) and I can't wait to start! We're hoping this weekend if not next weekend.
What are you going to work on this week? Will you join me?
