Baby shower

Left early b/c I wasn't feeling well. Actually, that's not true. But I
can't say the real reason why I left. My mom always said if you can't
say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Blah.

trying to go Green

There is so much that I want to do, or "try" to do, to be a much earth friendlier person. I found these really cute reuseable bags online from Bright And Bold. I ordered them yesterday morning and they came in the mail today! Holy Cow! that was FAST! So since they came today I was so excited to use them grocery shopping today. I waited for hubby and his nephew, Jared, to come back home b/c they wanted to go with. So they came home and we left right away. We get to the store, I grab a cart and preceded to walk into the store when I realized I forgot the bags!! :( Hubby just laughed. I wanted him to go back and get them for me, but he wouldn't. They really are cute. I bought 2 sets, the pink

and the green.

And they're big bags too! These would make great gifts too. hmmm...great Christmas gift!! :D ooooh! Look at that! It's September and I've just begun my Christmas shopping!!!! :D


I was on a sewing kick after I was done making the quilt that I went to the store and bought cloth diapers and a bunch of ribbon and made burp rags for the babies!

I just hope my SIL will appreciate the home made goodies I made. I guess I'll know tomorrow at the shower when she opens up the gifts.


Well DH is finally back home with his nephew. They ended up coming back in a day early. So now we have his 20 year old nephew living with us. I think he's going to like living in Wisconsin vs. North Dakota. (ok, maybe that's just me!! lol)

back home

It's good to be back home. The trip was fun. Didn't have very good cell phone signal, so I couldn't update with my iPhone. I guess ND is too rural for their cell service.

We did a LOT of 4-wheeling. Man, that was FUN! I practically grew up on an ATV, and I've really missed riding them. One of the downfalls about living in town, you can't walk out your door hop on and go. My mom even went out riding with us. I think she secretly misses them too! :)

When I got home, we had an email from the breeder with a photo of Reign. This picture is just too cute!

I sat down all day yesterday and made my very first quilt.

I can't believe I actually made this thing!! I really am proud of myself for sticking with it and finishing. (I am your typical Gemini that likes to start new things, gets bored, and never finishes it. I have LOTS of unfinished projects laying around my house. That's the one trait I would love to change about myself. I try...then get bored and stop! LOL!) This is a small baby quilt I made for my SIL's baby shower this Saturday. Talk about last minute, eh? I also have to run to the store tonight and pick up some cloth diapers. I have some brightly-colored ribbon I'm going to sew down the sides so they can be used as burp rags. I saw the idea online a while ago and thought that would be something easy that even I could do.

Mall = Fun

We made it to the Mall of America yesterday and walked all 3 floors. This mall is truley amazing. What other mall in the US can you go to that has this in it???

And check out Lego Land!!

When we got to our hotel and pulled into the parking lot, we saw the CNN bus that was here this week for the Republican Convention.

North Dakota

Nothing exciting happened today. Just been busy doing last minute packing for our little get away. We are going to North Dakota. Why, you ask? Well because hubby is from there and we're going to celebrate his parents 50th wedding anniversary on Sunday. Looking forward to seeing all his old friends and family that we hardly get to see. My mom's going with too. Unfortunately, my dad had to stay behind b/c of work. bleh. He was bummed that he couldn't go with.

But we're leaving bright and early tomorrow morning and stopping in Minneapolis to chill out at Mall of America for the night and then leave Saturday morning to finish the 2nd half of our 11 hour drive. I am excited about going shopping tomorrow afternoon at the mall. One store I will be stopping at is Archivers. LOVE that store. I was at the store in Madison a lot last year when I lived there. Such a nice layout to that store. And they had EVERYTHING!! :D

I will do my best to try and post during my trip, but I don't think I'll be able to get my data service on my iPhone in ND. So I won't be able to go online. :(

peace out~

Reign over me

here are 2 photos I have that I took of Reign. We've only seen here twice, about 3 weeks apart. I was too busy playing with her the 2nd time that I really didn't think about getting photos.

This one she is only a day old.

This one she is about 3 weeks old.

Ok, so I didn't want to watch it, but I did. AND I think I'm hooked. sigh. It's soo cheesy, but I just couldn't stop watching it. I think it was because of Shenae Grimes. She just came across very sincere and just really down to earth. So I set my TiVo to record the season. We'll see how it goes.

Happy September 1st!

I'm going to try do be more active with my blogging this month. I'm going to challenge myself to blog everyday during the month of September. So here's to a month of rambling!! :D

This weekend was the big 105th anniversary celebration of Harley Davidson in Milwaukee. I live about 45 minutes north of downtown Milwaukee and let me tell ya, the rumbling was going loud and strong ALL weekend!! There were several bands playing all weekend in my town too. Lynyrd Skynyrd was playing at our fair ground last Wednesday. I must have been hiding under a rock lately b/c I didn't even know he was in town until after the event.

My friend Leah reunited with the band, The Indispensable Hiptones, that she used to play in and played downtown MKE yesterday. Her plan was to wear her leather vest and her jeans and leather chaps. It was very warm out this weekend and she said she just couldn't do the chaps. She was a little sad b/c she really wanted to wear them up on stage.

Let me just say that I really love my little iPhone. Like today. I'm at home and hubby went to the store to get a curtain for the window downstairs (yes, you read that right. HE wanted to go to the store to get one (shaking my head)), and he calls be b/c their are 2 different ones and he didn't know which to get. He tried to explain them both to me and finally he said let me just snap a picture and send it to you. So he took the photo, emailed it to me and then my phone went buzzz meaning I had a new email. So I said hold on, let me look. Then proceeded to pull up the email he sent me on my iPhone. I know this may sound silly, but if you think about how far technology has come in the past couples of years, this really is awesome!! :D Thou, depending on where you are at the moment your using your phone, it may take longer than you wish to even get your email. BUT.....I just know within the next few years that will all change.

ok, I think this is it for now. I'm getting tired. And plus I need to save stuff for tomorrow.

peace out~
