tired

My social media is full of people discussing "recovering" from Halloween parties. I'm just over here like "Why, oh why did I decide to work a night shift?" I'm understanding the phrase so tired I can't sleep.

Also, though, yeeeeee. Harry Potter. How did I make it this far in life imagining it a waste of time? Halfway through book 3. The movies (watched after each book)-- so-so. BUT THE BOOKS ARE SO GOOD! I WANT TO READ THEM AND NEVER STOP.

2/13/14



In the last week or so....

I been Pinning and trying new foods. Making an effort to cook more! We tried Jumbalaya, Favorite Turkey Burgers, and Orange Chicken. All were delicious!! (and pretty easy :)

ALSO,
excitement in the Buelow household...
We found a lost dog. He had tags on, so I know his name was Pongo :) The phone number on the tag was disconnected, and nobody was home at the address on the tag, though I left a note. I loved the cute chihuahua mix-- really, he looked like a fox, and made me want to sing one of my favorite songs. He seemed so scared but ended up being so sweet! I took him to the vet because he appeared to have some sort of eye infection, and he snuggled up against my foot while we were waiting (MELT!) In the end, I found his owners and reluctantly returned him. I feel kind of silly, but I still miss him so much!








We toured the Mormon Temple. It was soo busy, as the last day of Open House is Saturday and we waited until the preceeding Wednesday. We waited in line for about an hour and a half in total, but watched a video about the Temple, and then got to walk through it. It was interesting! My impressions: fascinated by the beauty and opulence, saddened for those who must prove their faithfulness to be accepted, and finally, grateful for grace! It was a neat opportunity to see it!

Frost with Ashley. Last hang-out before we finally meet Baby Girl? Strawberry Champagne and Banana Sorbetini- sorbet mixed with Pelegrino. Probably won't do that again.

"Basket" Project

What have I been doing since I quit my job? the short answer is-- Not Much!but I  have mow completed ONE project! I saw this on Pinterest and started covering the boxes months ago! The fabric was purchased and has been sitting in the corner since about Valentine's Day. So yeah, it's about time!  

So, from the beginning now:

I wanted some storage in our new shelving unit but didn't want to but expensive baskets from the store. So I took a few if my abundant medical supply boxes and covered them in twine as instructed on DIY Design Fanatic.

Then, I sound some super cute material at JoAnn's and made liners for them as instructed on Mandy's Krafty Exploits

The problem was, my measurements weren't right on, so I had to put some elastic around the edges to hold the liners in place. That was the hardest part.




It isn't anywhere near professional, but adds some color to the room. 



I also took some fabric to add some color to our solid blue window (another idea from Pinterest). I like it :)

Allie

I got out a blanket, threw it on the chair, then ran to the bathroom to settle in and read. I come back and she's all snuggled up and looking at me like, "Sorry, but I don't think there's enough room for you."
