My 1st Bow!

Isn’t it beautiful?   I’m so excited for myself.

Last night I spontaneously went to a girls’ movie night and had such an enjoyable time.  (We claimed we were prepping ourselves for the midnight showing of Eclipse that’s coming up next month).  One of my friends was multitasking by making hairbows so she taught me how to make this one.  It was easy!!  I think I have a new addiction.  I came home at midnight and scoured through my craft room in search of polyester material, but couldn’t find any.  And I need to buy alligator clips still too!  It’s probably a good thing I don’t have the supplies to make more, but you better believe I’ll be jumping on the bow making band wagon soon!

Car Trauma

I went in for an oil change and 3 hours later left with 2 tired boys and a rental car!! 

The brake light won’t turn off when you release the emergency brake so they were tinkering and thought it would be a quick fix.  All I can say is thank goodness we ate right before we went in, I’m getting smarter at keeping diapers and wipes in my purse, and the stroller has a permanent home in the trunk of the car.  We wouldn’t have survived without all of those today.

We did have some fun lessons about car dealerships and compared/ contrasted everything we saw in the Toyota service station to the movie CARS.  No white wheels at Luigi’s or Lamborghini cars though =o)

I’ve Been Tagged!

Four random things I like about my husband:
1. He laughs at me and makes me laugh.
2. He gets Mikey out of the tub, lotioned up, into pjs, reads scriptures, and puts Mikey to bed every night!
3. He is pretty passionate about food storage right now so we both enjoy grocery shopping =o)
4. He has such a strong testimony, vast knowledge of everything related to the gospel, and genuine love for others that I really learn things from him.  I learn church trivia type stuff, but more importantly I learn from his example and wise words about not being so critical of others, how I can best help others, and he teaches me a lesson or two quite often using his good ole’ parables =o)
