Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

Welcome everyone from Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! I'm so excited to be participating in this again!

This time around, I'm giving away this baby dress set. Some people have bought sets like this from me, to use from Christening. Others just like to put their baby in a cute dress. Either way, I hope you enjoy it!

The cute bonnet. With ribbon and roses.

The matching booties!

And the dress! It's a size 0-3 months. But I also have up to a size 18 months. And in a few different colors. I'll let the winner decide on their choice.

Now for all the important stuff. Please leave me a link to your favorite blog. That's it! I'm looking for fun, inspirational, and exciting new blogs to read. All you have to do is leave the link. You have until May 29th at 11:59 MST. Please leave a way for me to contact you. Good luck everyone! And don't forget to visit my daughter, she's giving away from goodies too!

I LOVE Pineapples!

I've been eyeing this book for a while now. I think I just need to buy it. Not think about it. Just buy it! I've been on a doily kick lately. And I think this would be a nice addition to my crochet books. Now I just need to come up with a few more. You know, to make an order to Annie's Attic worth while. :)

My granddaughter graduated last night. It was such an incredible experience! We've been close to her since she was small. And my husband and I had decided that we were going to try and do as much as we could for her. My daughter also helped. Between the 3 of us, we were able to buy her class ring, yearbook, clothes for graduation, announcements, cap and gown, and we're throwing her a party.

It's honestly the least we could do. She's had an uphill battle. Her entire life! And this was such a giant accomplishment for her. We are all so proud. Especially since she graduated with good grades. She was on the honor roll. And received an award for that.

The icing on the cake, was that the principle talked about her during his speech. It really made her feel special. My granddaughter has taught us all amazing things. Especially that, you can accomplish anything. It doesn't matter if you have disabilities, learning problems, or are in special education classes. The sky is the limit! We are all so proud!

Long Time...No Chat

It feels like forever. The last few months have been tough. And I haven't had much time for anything. First, I'd like to thank you for sticking with me. And praying for my husband. He's doing much better. Slowly making improvements. But getting better.

On the career side of things, well, we're taking lots of cuts. We work with education, and the budget crisis is just killing us. My husband seem to be buried at the moment. In work. In life. And all that stuff.

We're not letting it get us down though. We are still moving forward. Trying our best to get back to "normal." More than anything, live life. And be happy with the life we have. You'll be hearing more from me. On a more regular basis. Thank you again for sticking around, and praying for my family.
