Sassy Aprons

Lucy and Shawnee from the Sassy and Flirty Apron Swap (click on the side button for more info) are doing their first just for fun giveaway and since I am in the swap, I may just win. Yea me! or Yea to one very lucky swapper. The apron is the Sassy Valentine apron that can be found at this awesome site: Sassy Aprons at Etsy. Check out the site, maybe buy an apron - they are all beautiful.

Yea! I am so glad its Friday! It's been one heck of a week at work but maybe that's because I had the previous week off - who knows?!
Anyway, I plan to finish the Amy Butler Nappy bag that I am making for a co-worker this weekend and hopefully make a couple of aprons that I have the fabric for. I will post pics asap.
And it's suppose to SNOW Saturday night. Of course, the weather people are incorrect about 99% of the time but there is hope. I would love a day where I am "trapped" in by the snow so I could stay at home and sew.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Last Friday

OK, I know I am a few days behind but I've been busy. I took last week off of work (actually I'd been off since Christmas day) to do some cleaning and sewing and a little relaxing. DH took off for a few days to visit family and friends in WV so DD and I were able to spend some real quality girl time together. We spent one whole day shopping and caught a couple of really great deals.
DH got home Thursday evening and we decided to do "family time" Friday morning. We called some friends of ours and headed to Fun Depot. Fun Depot has all sorts of video games, a climbing wall, laser tag, etc., etc.. Here is DD and DH playing Skee Ball:

We also played laser tag - the 4 adults versus the 5 kids. The adults WON!
Friday night, DD and I met up with a friend of mine, Sonya and headed to our local Scrapbook store for a Friday night crop. We had a great time. Here is a pic of me and Sonya.

2008 Top Ten list

Mama Kat at put out a prompt and I picked my 2008 top ten list of what I did. Here goes:
1) I was nicer in 2008! LOL That was one of my '08 resolutions and I know I broke it very early. But I do recall several times where I held my tongue. Yeah me!
2) I was able to survive the 6 1/2 weeks that my daughter was gone to camp. It was rough but good practice for when she leaves for college (or so she tells me).
3) Renewed my relationship with my husband (thanks to the 6 1/2 weeks DD was at camp).
4) Reunited with my BFF from High School thanks to facebook. Hopefully we will get together a lot in 2009.
5) Reunited with my aunt whom I had not seen in probably 20 years. My father came from a really large family and most of them have passed away. My father passed away 16 years ago and during that time, I lost all contact with his family. My aunt did a lot of searching and found us this summer. It has been awesome reconnecting with her and getting to know my cousins. I have also gotten to hear a lot of stories about my father.
6) Started my first quilt. I took a class this summer (also thanks to DD being gone for so long). I have not completed it so I guess that will go on my '09 resolution list.
7) Made several gifts this year instead of buying them.
8) Read a book or two including The Shack. My reading was also down from years past but I do have a huge to be read pile waiting on me. It is so hard to fit in all of my hobbies.
9) Had my wisdom teeth removed. A lot of pain and a lot of pain meds - enough said.
10) Participated in several swaps - mostly apron swaps. So much fun!

Now to sit down and work on that '09 resolution list.
Best wishes to everyone for a Wonderful New Year!
