29 Things I Love-#28

#28- I love that my kids have an amazing group of friends.  They each have a small tight knit group of kids that they love dearly and spend lots of time with.  They go on play dates and sleepovers at each others houses. They go to each others birthday parties.  Isabella has known her closest friends almost her whole life.  Ian has known his closest friends since they were all babies.  They are all growing up together and all of their fondest memories include their best friends and best buddies. 

R is for rain, rainbow, and red mac n cheese

Another day of preschool and today we learned all about the letter Rr.  I tied the letter of the week and craft time with our Bible story which was Noah and the ark.  We reviewed our number 6-10 buy playing a number matching game I came up with using number cards and clothes pins.  After we were all done we had lunch with our friends Aurelia, Giulietta, and their mom Angela. On the menu for the kids was red mac n cheese, octopus hot dogs, and fruit.  I would say that today was a very good day.  Now it's time to sit with a big glass of iced tea and update my calendar.  Can you believe that March is going to be here already?  Yes, it's coming tomorrow whether we like it or not.

29 Things I Love-#27

#27- I love trying new things.  Over the last year I tried my hand at cross stitching and sewing.  I wasn't too sold on the cross stitching.  That stuff takes a long time and I am a very impatient person when it comes to crafting.  I don't have a lot of time to craft so when I get some crafting time I need to get things done. Unfortunately cross stitching isn't something that you can knock out too quickly.  Well I at least not for me.  I think I worked on the same tea towel for 6 months and it's still not done.  Oh well.  Something I did love doing was sewing.  My mom helped me sew the kids Halloween costumes last year and it was so much fun.  It wasn't without its own set of problems but I survived it and can't wait to make their costumes again this year. I have even used my sewing machine in my scrapbooking. I know that this technique isn't new or anything but it's new to me and I'm hooked.  I wonder what I'll try this year?

29 Things I Love-#26

#26- I love thrifting and vintage shopping.  I love stopping into thrift stores when I'm out and about running errands.  Sometimes I find some really great treasures and other times I come out empty handed.  Here are some of the treasures I have scored over the last year. 

29 Things I Love-#25

#25- I love getting  my hair cut and styled.  I am notorious for waiting too long between hair cuts.  My bangs usually end up at my nose before I get back into the salon.  But when I finally make the appointment and get my hair done, it is worth it.  I always feel like a new woman.  

29 Things I Love-#24

#24- I love making gifts for friends and family.  In the previous post I showed you all the mini album I made with some leftover scrap paper.  I loved how it turned out and decided I had enough to make one more and give to a friend.  I can't wait to see her mini album filled with photos and embellishments.
