BULLETS

I'm just lovin' the bullets for giving out stuff I must share....
  • In Tate's Kingdom I am almost done with the painting and almost ready to move the furniture back into the room! It is looking so amazing and I promise to post pictures soon.

  • I am traveling next week out to Minneapolis MN to see TESS and JULIE! I am so excited I cannot stop smiling when I think of this! Here I am holding both gals during the Utah bloggy 2007 gathering. Tess actually was sitting with me happily, but for some reason, when it came time for a picture of these two gals and me, she wanted to bolt!

  • The other day I got to do a thing that us waiting mommas without any children crave. I got to watch Eliza for one hour while her momma went grocery shopping. It was so fun sitting in the downstairs play room/storage room/ office. Who am I kidding by giving it a name- it is the JUNK ROOM! Playing with Eliza and having her undivided sweet attention. She is a such a smart cutie pie!

  • Man I love me some good EB*Y shopping! I have been adding to Tate's Library. For the bargain price of .99 I have bought hardcover USED but actually new looking books. This week a signed copy by Jan Brett of Daisy Comes Home, three of the "Bear" series, Bear Wants More, Bear Stays Up, Bear Snores On.

  • I did splurge on the new book Good Morning China amazingly illustrated by the artist Hu Yong Yi. You must see this one.

  • I have been feeling so good about all the small projects I have been getting done around this house. It think it helps to be working on a major re-do and getting the little stuff done also. While working with the white paint for all the trim in the Kingdom, I have painted inside part of the front door and two layers on top of Tate's dresser.

  • I am trying to organize my space to accommodate Tate and all her "stuff". When you live in a small 100 yr old house with limited closets (had one originally, I have added three) you have to try to be creative. I have been working on some creative projects, but these project as worthy of it's own post with pictures.

  • I am feeling great and no longer like a stuffed Build A B*ar.

Hi, I've been following your blog for awhile now and it is getting exciting to see you getting so close.
I've recently taken the plunge and joined the blogging world so I've decided to come out of lurkdom and post to the blogs I enjoy.
Stop by my blog if you get a chance.

I'm the stuffed build a bear now!=(
Speaking of bears, LOVE the bear books. I use them at school for language skills. Can't wait to see the progress in Tate's Kingdom. Have fun in MN!
