Congratulations Ben & Kim!!!! We are so happy for you both!!!
Alex was thrilled to be their flower girl... she looked so pretty!! Well, for the first 1/2 anyway... once the kid-favor markers found their way to her dress... along with the chocolate fountains... and then there was some sort of break-dancing going on on the dance floor too (I'll see if I can add some pics of her and her cousin cut'n a rug together)... that by the time she was finished beating up on the dress, we actually left it behind at the hotel... yes, it was THAT bad!!!! But you know what, she got through the ceremony looking sweet as can be, so the h*** with the rest! We snapped some beautiful pics (pre-marker and choc fountain) so we do have proof that she can clean up well when we scrub really hard!! :)
Anyhow, Ben & Kim... we love you guys!!! Thanks for letting us be a part of a very special day!!!

Check out the video from the above site.... what a wonderfully simple concept of spreading some love... they played this video at church on Sunday... it has really stuck with me (thanks Thom!)... I just love it!!! Hug one person today that you might not usually hug... it might change someone's day more than you would ever realize. Hugs to you all!!!! :)

Ok, I've just had a sewing marathon over the weekend. My husband and daughter went to Paducah, KY to visit Grandpa again.... he is doing GREAT!!! It's amazing to hear how well he is doing, considering where he was when we first got to the hospital

Ok, so this is one of those things where we were waaaaaaaaaay hesitant to send our daughter to her Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop's house, over 600 miles away in Delaware, to attend a 3 week theater camp over the summer.

Ok, the past 2 weeks have just gotten crazier and more chaotic with each hour that has passed... especially with the recent loss of a very cherished hour... I have dark circles under my eyes that Ive labelled "Spring Forward... right back to bed".... I just love waking up when its pitch dark again... Im so very motivated by darkness... can you hear the sarcasm in my voice?... it's pretty thick... Anyhoooooo... :) Luckily, I did find enough time to finish my newest little creation... yippeeeee!!!!
Meet STELLA!!! She's confident, a little whacky, and has her own unique point of view. She's my newest addition to the skirt collection! This one is made with a colorful & whimsical owl print, mixed with a red ditsy polka dot, a vibrant fuschia pink pleated trim, and then a whacky green & turqoise polka dot ribbon snap strap... you just never know when you'll want to carry around the little girly change purse or maybe just a favorite keychain without the fear of losing it! Let me know what you think... I welcome ALL feedback... good or bad!
I'm getting ready for Spring Break next week... squeezing 2 weeks worth of my "To-Do List" into a few days, but boy, am I looking forward to it!!!!! We're heading to Williamsburg... not the typical kid spot for Spring Break, but I remember it from when I was a child and I just remember it being such a neat, neat place... hoping my daughter thinks the same!!! All else fails, I know there's an indoor pool where we are staying and icecream somewhere throughout Williamsburg... so we'll be just fine regardless!! :) I'm personally just looking forward to some long overdue uninterupted family time!!! So to all of you that will be on Spring Break as well... be safe and have an awesome week off!!!!
First order of business when I get back is my 1st dress... I know what the design will be... just have to work out the fabric choices and cut out the pattern.... so stay tuned!! Later my taters! Have a wonderful day!!!

So I'm going back about a week and a half (right before I got sick)... we had 2 or 3 absolutely beautiful days... low 70's, beautiful sunshine, you would have thought it was the end of April, not middle of February!!! So we decided to take advantage of it and went out for a scooter ride around the lake... and along the way we inspected some Minos, skipped some rocks, tried to fish for snapping turtles with a long tree limb (didn't work, just in case you were wondering! :), had a contest on who could throw a rock the farthest, played on the playground, climbed some trees (well, one of us did anyway! :) It was great!!!
I wish I would slow down enough to do more of this... still working on that thing I mentioned earlier... that whole stepping back out of the Mommy Boot Camp mode... we have such a good time when we do this. Why in the world is it so hard to "just enjoy the moment"... I tend to get caught up in the "what comes next" instead of "whats going on now"... that whole "we have to get this done, that done, oh! and then there's that other thing..." way of thinking.
Those rare moments where we're down at the lake goofing off, or walking, or biking... or having family game/puzzle night, or Friday pizza & movie night... those are the "real" moments... the ones that really count... so how do you balance the endless to-do list with that quality time of being in the moment? i think the key might have to do with time-management... something I definitely need improvement on! So that will be my area to focus on this week... we'll see how it goes... I have a new skirt that's waiting to be sewn up (fabric is cut out and ready to roll)... I'm hoping to finish that one tomorrow... I'll post when I get it photographed to see what you think... and of course, I'll need some suggestions on what to name the new baby.... so be thinking about some new groovy "S" names!!! :)

Anyhow, my head is swimming with all this red tape. I still have hope though... and I'm still going to push forward. But nothing like throwing an overgrown wrench into the whole equation, eh?!! Keep your fingers crossed for all of us lone craftsmen and artisans out there!

So I have some new fabrics Im dying to play with!!! Ill try to add a picture of some of them later today. Im thinking about trying my hand at some sun dresses for the Spring/Summer. Skirts are still my 1st love, so there will still be plenty of new skirt designs to come, but Id really like to try out this new dress design that keeps haunting me for the toddler age. So many ideas, so little time!!! Keep checking the site though... I expect to have a couple new things on there sometime next week... well, as long as I can manage my time wisely with my PTO duties... that one is always an unknown... always interesting and keeps me on my toes constantly... I think I secretly love it, but boy-o-boy... it takes quite a chunk of time out of my weeks!!
Anyhooooo, I must confess something to you really quick before I close... I have done HORRIBLY about working out this week... we had off school for Martin Luther King, Jr holiday on Monday, then snow day on Tuesday, and then jumped right into work once Alex walked out the door this morning. SO!! I will use this confession to my advantage... Im closing this out and going straight upstairs to my treadmill... and Ill be feeling those love handles bouncing at every step I climb (boy, you'd think that would be enough of a reminder, ya know?) One day at a time... that's what I need to keep reminding myself... one day at time. Ok, off to make my fate for TODAY!! :) Have a lovely Wednesday my friends!!

Check out the etsy site around mid next week to see all of the yummy new stuff! :) http://snigglefritz.etsy.com
Some of my family (my Aunt Liz, Aunt Giddi & Uncle Joe) have really kicked some tail with getting into shape. They look great, you can tell they feel great, and there is just this extra healthy & energized glow about them... a couple of them are even doing marathons now! So they are a big part of my inspiration... surely, if one generation ahead of me can get into shape, so can I!! :)
