Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my 50th birthday! Where did the time go? Seems like yesterday, I was graduating from high school. We went out for dinner with friends last night..great time had by all. Today I've been told to be ready to leave by 2:30pm. I wonder what is up their sleeves?

Hope you all have a great day! Here's a pic of John and I from our vacation last year in Florida.

Overnight Stay

Our nephew, Gavin (3 yr) stayed overnight this past Saturday. We took him to the playground for an hour or so and then we went to Chicken Donalds for dinner. He loves getting a toy in the happy meal. By 7:30pm he was asking to go to bed! What kid asks to go to bed? He does!

I've been doing alot of sewing little projects this week, but something went wrong with the machine last night. My thread wont grab the bobbin thread for some reason. John's going to look at this weekend and see whats going on. It might need to repairman!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Baby Quilt

I finally got the pic downloaded of the baby quilt I finally finished. Its a pattern from V and Co! It is so cute! Now I just need to quilt it.

The weather has finally started to feel like Spring. Today it was about 67 degrees! We were outside raking and playing ball with the pup, Mylo!

Hope everyone is having a good day!
