Sarah's Baby Shower

This was last Saturday at Marilyn Elliott's House for our friend Sarah's Baby Shower. It was adorable and had an owl theme going. Definitely one the most adorable showers that I've been too.

Sarah is apart of our small group (left) that started out as a running group a little over a year ago and continued as a group after our training. It's been the best! These girls are amazing!

Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow!

Planting seeds for the spring has officially begun! This is only the second year we have tried this, but I couldn't wait to start. I worked on the flower seeds for the front yard, which I think I'm going to try to put around the mailboxes and bushes.

Rob worked on all of the yummy vegetables. I think we have 2 types of squash and tomatoes, carrots, and green beans.

Sewing Lesson 101

Thread, thread, thread, and that damn bobbin!!! PHheewww....I think I'm finally overcoming my frustrations with sewing! I started my first lesson with my friend Hannah last night and sucessfully completed 3 napkins. Let's just give it up for Hannah for her extraordinary talent and mad teaching skills.

My lessons are a gift from Rob for my birthday, because of how badly I have wanted to learn to sew. I had borrowed a sewing machine from Megan (months ago!) and have tried learning from my mom for years. I just want to throw the machine, material, and scissors across the room whenever I try. But yes, finally yesterday, I think I understand how to thread the machine and keep the needle threaded. Here we go!! This means pillows, baby stuff, and much more to come!

Wilmore Community Center

I don't know how this happened, but we have lived here almost 3 years and finally just went to the Wilmore Commuity Center! Almost right across from our house, the parking lot I met in for 4 months every Saturday for our running group, and a place I have heard others talk about numerous times. How did this happen? Seriously! I love thrift stores!
Rob did find a treasure in the rough....a mint condition, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles story book from 1990 for $0.27!!!!!
