I have been looking for new brown shoes to go with my skirt that I love. My old brown shoes were pre-pregnancy so they don't exactly fit anymore. After visiting 5 stores (Pennies, Ross, Pay-less, Shoe Carnival, etc...) I finally found these....
Not exactly brown. But they totally match my skirt!!! Like perfect. And these are SUPER comfy! And they were only $25! I love when I find good buys. BTW I found them at Famous Footwear, and saw some other way cute flats that I want. But they will have to wait till Tyler at least gets another job :)
Well I have been feeling like a bum. And this is how I get myself to feel productive. Tyler is even excited about it all. His response was "Bonnie! You could sell these, I could make you a web sight!" - yeah, right. Haha.. I can't sell these, because they are too easy to make. Anyone can make them. Liz originally taught me how to make them, but I have experimented a little more. So here is what I did tonight:
Valentines bows! The Green ones are my favorite.
This is just a fake flower that I made into a clip.
This one is made out of wired ribbon, I just made it into a flower, then glued it to a clip. Cute, huh?
LOL.... this is the reason I do not post pictures of myself on the blog. What an idiot! But notice the flower.... really that is why I put this one on here... haha!
Anyway. hopefully I can start to love to do projects. I have been at the table making these and Ty is doing his homework. I guess I have been talking to myself without knowing it because Tyler says, "You are just like your Mom!" haha... well I am okay with that. My Mom is one talented lady and I love her :)
I still can't find my camera so I had to take this picture with the computer. its backwards... but you still get the idea.
This is what I made at Super Saturday today!
I love it! I haven't figured out where I am going to hang it yet, but when I do I will take a picture.
I had so much fun today. I got to know a few more ladies in Relief Society, and even more of my neighbors! Seriously. We have been living here since May, and we have never met our neighbors that live above us, they are even in our ward! So today we chatted. Hopefully we can become good friends. Anyway, I am so glad that I went. We are so lucky to be members of this church, that we have oppertunities like this to get out and have fun, meet new people. It feels so good to get out. I feel like we have been homebodies forever now. This year is going to be a good one, I think.
Do you know why??? Because Tomorrow night we are staying the night here:
The Hilton Garden Inn
And the view out our window will be this:
Tyler's Brother, Shane, works at this awesome Hotel and got us a killer deal. So Michelle is coming and staying the night with Lucy at our Apartment, and we get to go out and have fun!!! Our Anniversary isn't until Feb 9th, but everything fell into place for this weekend, so we are celebrating a little early! YAY!
What is it about having a girl, makes you more girly? AH! when I was in High school I hated girly things. I hated dresses and skirts, the color pink (I wouldn't be caught dead in pink!) I wore makeup, but it was bare minimum. like foundation to cover my pizza face, and mascara, because i have blonde eyelashes. I always wore jeans, a T-Shirt and Vans. I had no style.
But now! I like love shopping. I like cute jeans, and tops, and sweaters, and skirts, and cute shoes Ah. Mary Kay taught me how to properly do my makeup, now I put 9 different things on my face everyday. I go and get pedicures semi often. I love dressing Lucy up cute and doing her hair. And now I really want cute acrylic nails. WHEN DID I BECOME HIGH MAINTENANCE!!??? This is not the woman Tyler married. I have no idea where she went, or how to get her back.
Don't get me wrong, I am happy, and I stay within my limits, but what the heck?
We watched this super scary movie last night. I am not going to say what it was, because I don't want any judgement. But i will tell you this, I have learned my lesson. This movie was not only scary, and sorta true, but it was also about Evil Demons that can possess or follow people. Now I know there are stories that people have told of this happening to them. I have also watched a bunch of documentaries, because I love this kind of stuff. like I LOVE scary movies. I love to be scared, and then cuddled. hee hee. But the movie that we watched last night was EVIL! I seriously felt an evil presence for like 3 hours after it was over. I was so freaked. what if something like that happens to me.
So because it hit me so hard Tyler got out the Scriptures and read me a few verses. I felt a little better knowing that if anything did happen, I have God on my side, and together we are stronger than any Demon. So I think in part of our New Years resolution of going to church, we shall refrain from watching movies that are rated R. I don't know how or when it started, but we have become numb to them. no more! So I said a little prayer, and asked for comfort as I slept, that no Demon would come try and take over my body, or breathe down my neck, and I fell asleep.
Then we woke up and went to church! And it was soooo great. I love that in Relief Society and Priesthood they are going back to teaching the basics. Today's lesson was so good! I was sorta emotional, probably because of my life changing night I had. But none the less, Ty and I kind of Lost ourselves last year. With Lucy being sick, and not being able to have her in church, and us being Lazy, things just sorta became less important. Like God and Church. I'm so sorry. But that is the truth. But we are back. And I am so glad.
We are BAck! But, can't find the camera again, so when we do, we will post pics of our trip.
New years resolutions: Lose 46 lbs. I can do that right? My Mom has lost 45! So if she can do it, I can do it. But I am going to take it slow and steady, try not to worry about the losing weight part of it, and just excersize when I can, and try and eat healthier and more often, and watch my portions. And hopefully the weight will start to come off. When I was at My mom's I ran on the treadmill 3 times, but since I don't have a treadmill, I may start running outside. But I can only do that on the days that Tyler is home in the mornings. Because I am not taking Lucy out in the cold. So on the days that I can't go running, I will do some form of excersizing inside. today I plan to get out of bed and do the Ball workout. (Ty had to go into work early) Then I will use my new omlet maker and eat a healthy breakfast!
My other resolution is to be more organized! We started last night and got a DVD rack. We have so many movies that they are always all over our Apartment. not any more! Thanks to Tyler and Michelle they are all put away and alphabatized. My next thing to tackle is Lucy's toys. her room is such a mess all the time. I liked my sister, Shanna's idea, so I think I am going to find something like that and put the toys in different catagories, in different bins... But that takes money, so we will have to wait a little while for that one.
Okay Last Resolution: To be more involved in our Ward. We havent gone to church very often since we moved here, and I was blaming it on Lucy. But that isn't fair. Its not her fault. So we will be going to church every Sunday. And I am going to try and be more involved in Relief Society (go to meetings, and enrichment) This summer I am going to try and get out more and do play dates with the other Mom's. This is something that will be very hard for me, I have become some what of a Home body. I don't like it. It gets lonely and I would like to hav some more friends.
So that's that. hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New years. Good Luck on all of your resolutions, if you made them. We love you all!!
