Surprise 40th paty

So - I was VERY brave and threw a surprise 40th bday party for my husband! I will NEVER do this again!! It was SOOO hard keeping it a secret!That was the hardest party of it all!!!
I ordered cupcake-cakes and thought they turned out AWESOME!!! I went with the theme "Old Guy Rule."
 This is him at the party. He was VERY surprised!

 This is what I felt like by "party" day!

 Here's a few of us in the driveway waiting for him to get home......
 Me and my two girl....Riann and DeeDra!
 Fun of my favorite things were the koozies I had ordered for the party......They turned out AWESOME and the company was great to work with!

Another Riding Weekend (Not a bad thing!)

 Busy weekend again. And we went to an AWESOME dirt bike track on Saturday! Silly me - this is the ONLY pic I got of Coby!  Thank goodness we haven't let him take his dirt bike to a track yet - it just makes me TOO nervous!
 Hunter, however, WANTED to take his dirt bike! He did pretty good! No crashes - that's always a plus!
 Should I be concerned that my husband STILL does this? I mean really? Can you see him, up in those trees? He makes me a nervous wreck!
Yep.....he's still got it! Just needs to not jump SO high! I mean come HAS to be just as fun with both tires on the ground! Right?!

Running? Runner? To Run? Or Not To Run?

I've been running - does that make me a runner? Really? Let me explain: I did the "couch to 5k" last spring...and enjoyed it, and then once I hit week 8, I sort of fell off that ban waggon.
Then, this past January - I decided I wanted to be a runner again. I felt so much more energized, and just generally felt better, when I ran. So - we went on the treadmill hunt and got one. When the weather is nice enough and I am able too (depending on kids) I run outside, otherwise I run in the house on the treadmill. I started back on the "couch to 5k" now called "ease into 5k." Now I am on week 7! Yes, I said 7! I've been STUCK on week 7 for about 2 months! I run 3 days a week and zumba once a week. I Don't understand what the big hurrdle is to run ONE more minute....or another 1/4 of a mile! I don't get it!
So - does this make me a runner? Or just a wanna-be-runner?
I COULD finish a 5k right now - even though I would hate most of it - I could do it! But, why can't I seem to give myself that little PUSH that I need?

More lamp projects!

Hunter wanted a new lamp for his newly painted room, so BACK to Target! (Because they were buy 1 get 1 50% off.) I made this one for a friend's daughter who just HAPPENS to have a birthday this week and LOVES horses and cowgirls :)
And Hunter's FINAL product! He was very happy with it! Yea! They are SO fun and easy to make!

Quilt Progress

Haven't gotten very far - but this is where I'm at now. See the BIG "black" patch in the middle? That was a BIG no-no! So, I have NOW ripped that out and "fixed" it. Next....sewing the border! Updates soon! Let's see I have about 8 weeks to finish it. OMG! That's NOT very far away!

The Quilt for my mom!

Shhhhh, this is a secret project. But it's ok - my mom doesn't read my blog!

Anyway-I've only made ONE quilt, but decided I wanted to make one for my mom, and one for each of my 3 boys! Well, I am starting first on mom's, hoping I can have it completed by mother's day.

I went fabric shopping yesterday and just LOVE the colors I found! Went home last night and got it all cut out! I WANTED to start sewing tonight, but, it's Biggest Loser night, so I'm sure between dinner and watching my show I probably won't have time. Tomorrow night is zumba night, so I'm hoping for Thursday night! Geez! I need to NOT be so busy!

Project Lamp!

Well, I've been on the hunt for a Star Wars lamp! Coby LOVES Star Wars. But EVERY one I found (all online) were $59.99 AND UP! So.... I decided to settle this MYSELF! I went to Target and bought this lamp - on sale this week for $14.99, thank you very much!Went to Joann's and bought some Star Wars Fabric, broke out my Modge Podge and WAH LAH!!!

We have a Star Wars lamp!

This project took me MAYBE 30 minutes and made one little boy in my house VERY happy!!!

Birthday Month

I've been a bad bad blogger! (Hm...that's what I said 2 months ago, too!) I am REALLy going to try to be better! REALLY!!!!!

Coby will be 6 next week! 6! I can't believe it - I do NOT like my baby growing up!

He got glasses this past week. Some paperwork came home from school, he failed his vision screening. So I made him an eye dr. appt, and sure enough, he did the same thing there. His right eye is a little far sighted, but his left eye is VERY far sighted! We are hoping glasses for a few months can correct this, hopefully he won't have to wear them forever.

And this is one of the photo's I had taken of him a couple weeks ago. I hope to have the entire CD soon! I AM BACK bloggy world.....and I'm here to stay!!!!
