You have 30 minutes to gather up your life...

That is what my BFF Carrie heard from the Nassau Bay (a community south of Houston and north of Galveston)authorities about accessing possible damage to her home post Hurricane Ike. She and her husband evacuated their home early on Friday in preparation for the storm. The region, as seen on tv, was devistated by a raging storm surge and high winds. And tomorrow morning, she and her hubby of 4 years will have 30 "approved" minutes to visit their home, gather up what they can, take pictures if needed, and say goodbye (temporarily of course). Who knows what they will find when they enter their home. Who knows when they will be allowed back to clean up any debris or possible damage. Please pray for my dear friends. They are such loving, kind, and totally rockin cool people...and I hope they don't have to deal with much clean up. I wish I wasn't so far away and could help clean up that community...and my parents, aunts/uncles/cousins and other friends communities as well... since they all had some sort of damage from the Hurricane
I love you, Houston and surrounding area. My thoughts and prayers are with you all!

What have i done?!!!

Yikes, I posted the outfit (see below) on ebay and have been bombarded with orders! I've taken 5 complete set orders, 2 orders for just the pants, and one for just some shirts! And that's not counting the 4 or 5 orders that are pending. How will I find time to do all this!? I love to sew, but sheesh! Need to order more material. Need to cut out the patterns. Need to hire some people to hide in my basement (if I had one) and work all hours of the day and night to bust out all these orders!!! "Hey, S-O, wanna learn how to sew?"

Stop complaining and LIVE already!!!!!!!

Five things I say to myself almost daily (not in any particular order):
1. "Stop complaining...and LIVE already!"
2. "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming, swimming, SWIM!!!"
3. "You're gonna miss this..."
4. "The grass is NOT greener...really."
5. "What would ________ do?" (insert the name of various people who I think would perform the task at hand MUCH better than me)

I'm NOT smiling!

"I am NOT smiling!"

Letter to the Editor

Dear Parent's Magazine Editor Lady,

I love (to eat) your magazine. It's really fun (to tear). I especially enjoy (biting) the Mom Notes Section. It provides (my belly) lots of great recipies for life (and dinner).

Hot despite the pain...

Here's Mr. Hotty looking HOT...despite the excruciating pain in his back. He somehow injured his back on Saturday but didn't feel the extent of his injury until Sunday morning when he literally had to wrestle S-O into her carseat after church. The super HOT husband and loving Daddy that he is...sucked it up and posed with his girls for an impromptu photo shoot after lunch.

Sewn lately

Here's what I've been sewing lately. I found this AWESOME baby pants tutorial here and used modification techniques from here to make them to fit S-O. This outfit was made for one of her friends at school. I've had such a great response from people who have seen her new outfits, that I decided to start making them for sell on Ebay and Etsy. I guess we will see how it goes.
