birthday gifts

Remember this post last year? Well, it's her birthday again. So here's this years gifts...

Felt hair clips.

This is a headband. I don't think you can tell, but it has velcro dots on the backside of it that keep it from sliding off the head, (common problem of headband wearers).

And lastly, a zippered pouch with some candy to share... or not. I don't know if you can tell, but the inside linning fabric is covered with clear vinyl, that way the candy won't get the inside of the bag yucky... just in case.
Happy Birthday Abby!

new Emma?

I'm not sure how I have missed seeing this version of Emma, but it's SO good. Love it! Maybe it's new? Anyway, if you haven't seen it, go here to watch it. I've only made it through the first episode, but of course can't wait to see the rest. BBC I love you!

lynette's bracelet

When we were in Corpus for Thanksgiving I bought some pretty green beads for a bracelet for Lynette. It took me a while to get it put together, but I think it turned out really pretty. So, hope you love it Lynette, and sorry it took me so long!

"great" idea

Our insurance has this "great" thing they've been doing for a couple of years. Every two months there are two wellness challenges... one is an exercise challenge, and one is a nutrition challenge. If you keep these challenges 80% of the time, then you can get $25 back/two months, (in the end, $150, per person). So, the idea is that you do these 6 challenges throughout the year, and then at the beginning of the next year, you get a refund check... "great" idea.

The challenges for Jan and Feb are, exercise for at least 30 minutes/5 days a week - easy peasy. And the nutrition challenge is to replace soft drinks and sweets with water and fruit, every day. Yep, you got it... EVERY DAY! That's the hard one for this chica. Of course I only have to do this 80%, which means I can miss 10 days total in a 2 month period... seems easy you say? Try it.

Anyway, here we are at the beginning of Feb, and I've got 4 days left. I know one will go around Valentines day... it's a must to make sugar cookies, after all. So 3 days left, which leaves me wondering... should I specifically place them, or just leave them floating and use them as necessary? Why does Feb feel like the longest month?

Needless to say, I can't wait for Feb to end.
