Awesome Speakers

In the market for some speakers for our ipod, and can't bring myself to want to buy anything boring when there are beauties like these on the market. The lamp speaker from pottery barn teens is especially awesome and useful. Of course all of these range from $80-$160, probably out of my price range, still a girl can dream.

They let him fly the plane..

We are home! Finally and glad to be. The apartment smells so good. I am tired and want to be with my husband but just wanted to remember these Classic moments. C saying "this isn't flying, this is falling with style" and the pilot letting him sit in the cockpit during our lay over. Goodnight and see you tommorow.

Old navy is having an awesome sale that ends today so I took the opportunity to buy some adorable things for some nephews of mine
Finn this is for you.

Sick on Vacation

When I first got to CA most of the people around me were sick, what was I to do jump on the plane and head home? So I have been loading up on vitamin C and praying it would pass us by. It didn't. There are so many lovely things I wish I was doing but instead I feel like laying here and hoping Tober doesn't wake up from her nap anytime soon.

There are too many things that need to be made cute for me to be sick right now! grrr

C bug getting Valentine cards and Tober eating them
Making Chocolate covered pretzels that look like cars

Helping the pixie shtick make her rosette pillow

J helping with the Dishes, he loves the dish washer

Jones left us to go back to work. Is it sad or truly wonderful that I still miss him after only hours of being apart? All of the extra visitors have gone home so it is going to be kind of quiet here tommorow. Or will it?

I am soaking up the sun here in beautiful CA, and having a blast with my crazy, laugh-a-lot family. Sleep deprived for sure but loving every minute. Here are some highlights:

1.My sisters looking super cute wearing the flowers I made for them.
2. Riding around in the back of my Dad's truck in the desert while all the 3 yr old boys took turns driving and the "men"(older boys) shot airsoft guns at from the moving vehicle.
3. staying up late with the Herricks and talking about their little bun in the oven. We are calling her Biscuit.
4. Telling Pixie Schtick to stop laughing therefore making her laugh that much harder.
5. My Jones buying tulips for all the women this morning.

Ahhh good times, let them keep on coming.

So much happening..

I have been busy making things for my etsy shop, I am loving having all of these items around my house, but I am also excited about the idea of wrapping them in sweet smelling tissue paper and sending them of for someone else to enjoy.
Meanwhile Tober is practically crawling! She is getting her legs under her and everything, rolling and scooting towards whatever She wants and isn't happy til She gets it.
Also, we leave for CA tommorow, I still feel like it is next week or even further, not TOMMOROW! I can't wait to see my family and show off my little people :)
Lots of packing to do, If I can only stop wanting to make things all day!

Best birthday ever

For my birthday this year Jones took me up to Seattle

On the way I got to open my present, which was wrapped amazingly, as is tradition, Jones always finds amazing ways to wrap my presents.

He gave me a couple of books about sewing and a little dress form he carved out of styrofoam and wrapped in medical bandage. The skirt is made out of money I can use to buy my own dress form!

When we got there he took me to Pike place market, where he bought me flowers (beautiful tulips) and then took me a shop called The Confectional, where they make little cheesecakes that are so good it is sinful. Hands down best birthday cake I have ever had. (although the Ice cream cake mama R made me a couple years ago was pretty awesome too)

At this point I am thinking this is pretty awesome but it doesnt end there. We then walk to a little shop that sell one of my favorite drinks, Malta Goya, and I have been craving this since I didn't get my normal fix at Christmas. Then we sat and watched the sun set over the water before making our way to dinner. After we were thouroughly stuffed we walked it off by taking a stroll to Anthropologie where I bought a few delights for myself.
So fabulous

Then when we got home my in-laws suprised me with a TON more MAlta! I am set now for at least a week ;)

All of this plus a Joann's gift card from Shizilary and you get the Best birthday ever!

Plus I am thinking 23 looks pretty good on me.

So I am starting my etsy shop back up again and to be honest I am super self consious about it. I keep thinking why would someone want to buy any of this? Which is kind of silly cause I would buy it. I guess I just need to believe in myself a little more.
The things I like are cool and interesting. Just keep saying that to yourself.

Pillow in Progress

These pictures aren't that great quality but here they are. With some help from Tober ( or lack there of.) I am almost finished with this amazing pillow and thoroughly exhausted.

Time to relax by the fire and watch Lost with my Jones. :)
