New things are happening

New things are on the horizon....

1. I'm getting a web page designed and hopefully by this weekend it will be ready to set up. I will now have an online boutique with lot of fun stuff to offer!
2. I joined an etsy team!!! Can't wait to write little bits on my other team members (stayed tuned)
3. I will be offering giveaways on a couple of great blogs... hopefully I will be announcing them soon enough

On a personal note...
Declan is sick again - Double ear infection - the question lingering in my mind is will he need tubes like his sister????

Terrible Tuesdays


Or something like that. Not quite far enough into the week to be excited about the weekend.

Today was okay - other than I'm sick again. Luckily my children haven't been sick since December (knock on wood)

I finished some boxers tonight... I will be adding them to my store but these were made as a gift. My friend Laura had her baby a few days ago...and I only found out today!! What a bad friend. Guess that happens when you are sick and have 2 kids and live 3 hours away and its the busiest time of year.. :)

Also joined an Etsy group this weekend - will post details later...

Nothing is cuter

than your LO dressed up in a special outfit. I have a friend that gets to put her LO in nice clothes EVERYDAY. I wish I could but unfortunately my daughter and son attend daycare for 3 1/2 months and while they are there they play HARD. So no nice outfits for them M-F. But come Friday night cute things all around.

I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to help me make things. My mom was never "crafty" she bought what she wanted because she really didn't enjoy making things. My grandmother on the other hand was always cooking and doing something. So maybe I get it from her? My dad's mom is wonderful too! I didn't spend as much time with her growing up but as an adult I can call and talk to her about anything and she always has great advice. So Looking back at all the women that were influential in my life I hope I can pass the good qualities on to my daughter.

I'll pass some good things down to Declan too ;) I will leave most of it up to my husband though (I have one of the good ones).

I've decided to add a video clip of my daughter... she is so sweet

The name Dande...


Some people have asked where I came up with the name "Dande" (pronounced like Dandy) ... I didn't come up with it because my husband did. It represents the 2 most important people in our lives... our Children Dani and Declan....

Now I remember why...

I don't have 18 kids... I can't go without sleep. Last night was one of those nights. After Dani decided she wanted to play instead of sleep, Declan wanted to whine instead of sleep, and Hurley decided to bark instead of sleep... I decided I wanted to sleep.

All is well though I have super kids - they woke up with a lot of spunk.

(Should this be the time to tell you I am not an English Major - so don't be mad at me for bad grammar) :)

I finished 3 sets of bloomers last night... I think they turned out super cute (I'll post pics later). Its so fun to see something from start to finish (other than a blank tax return to one with completed figures) ;)

How many more months till I become a WAHM again??? Hurry up April 15th!!

I just realized this will be the first summer/fall in 2 years I haven't been pregnant. Woohoo!
