Happy new year!It been Flower Girl Dresses a looooooooooong winter.New york has been dumped on over and over.We have not had a winter like this in a long time.There is so much snow that they have not been able to collect the trash regularly.It pretty gross.I cannot wait till spring.I have not been able to post on my blog much.My family has been suckin up all my time.How dare they.The hlights from the new year till now are: For christmas my sweet husband gave me the best gift ever!I get one day off a month for a whole year!I had my day last month and came home feeling so rejuvenated.I spent the day reading in a cafe, getting my nails done, going to a movie(The black swan), window shopping(In 12 degree temps)Taking myself out for chinese food and back to the cafe for some Formal Evening Dresses UK more reading.I didn com home till 10:00PM!The kids were in bed and the house was clean so i watched a movie with my husband.When i finally had this day to myself i realized how much i really do need to just be alone once in a while.It was delightful. My christmas gift to my husband was"One fabulous meal"A month for him and any friends he chooses for the year.Last month he invited a friend over and his request was"Chicken fried steak" (Being the texan that he is).I had never made it or even tasted it myself.They said it was"Perfect".I also made mashed potatos and sage gravy, collard greens, and molton chocolate cake for desert.I didn eat any of it myself.It took a few hours to cook it all and it was gone in just a few minutes.I think that a good sign.

So, that what new around here.Probably more information than you ever wanted.It ok.I get it.Don talk about yourself, just shut up and creat a tutorial.I can do that.I went to a baby shower for a good friend the other day.A little girl born in march.It prompted Me to get out the sewing machine(After months ofNot sewing anything).I made soMe appliqued shirts and a few dresses(Post to coMe).I have to say, sewing spring clothes and working with light, colorful fabric really got Me excited to sew more.I think my next"Me"Day will be spent in front of my sewing machine. (Or staring at my new butt: )Here they are with mrs claus at macys santa land.Little one wantedNothing to do with santa, the elves, or any of them!Tried to engage her and she yelled at him"No!No!No!

The two big girls were willing participants.I loved most this year is that my older two did not get caught up in the latest"Hot"Toy on the market.6 year old asked for a guitar and my nine year old asked for a digital camera.Each got some books, art supplies, sparkly sneakers, wii games, and a few other things.Year we spent less than we have in a while and they didn even seem to notice or care.Was refreshing.
