I suppose that the words "Stop the Presses" shouldn't be used on a nearly defunct blog.
I'd make all sorts of excuses for why I was so busy - the holidays... blah blah blah blah blah...
Guess what I learned this weekend?
Turns out that each and every one of us on this earth has the same number of hours in the day - so my lame excuses about not having enough time are just not going to sell.
Honesty? Well, in all seriousness - this stupid nutrition class/weight loss thing is the ONLY thing that's been occupying my thoughts and this is NOT a diet blog. I do not want to write a diet blog... I can only assume that you don't want to read a diet blog... so I just ended up not blogging.
Okay - so that's actually only half of what I did. I also wasted a HUGE amount of time on pinterest. If you are not familiar with pinterest it is a lovely little corner of the web where people like me "pin" all of the things from around the internet onto virtual corkboards so that I can someday look back and see all of the million things that I wish I had actually done.
Seriously - I have a young friend who has her entire Pinterest wedding planned out down to the napkin rings. I don't think she's dating anyone right now.
BUT - this is where the Stop The Presses comes in...
and not just the cinnamon roll pancakes. although those are to. die. for.
While perusing Pinterest yesterday I saw a cute skirt made from fabric and an old pair of jeans... it was cute so of COURSE it went straight onto my "Sewing, Yeah, like I do THAT" board (seriously, that's what I named it... I like truth in advertising) and went about my life...
"Life" yesterday included taking my kids to the dollar store so that they could pick out some goodies to send off to some missionaries... we're nice like that... cheap, but nice...
As we entered the dollar store I notice that sweet H is tying her sweatshirt around her waist. Since it is about negative 23786 degrees Kelvin right now I'm wondering why on earth she would do this... and wondering why on earth she is tying it on backward... maybe she's just THAT proud of the BYU cougars? (hey, no college slamming around here people... take it outside!)
Turns out she'd been practicing the splits for her Hip-Hop class.
and there goes one more pair of jeans into the trash... but wait!
Yep - I have some fabric... I have a sewing machine... I have thread
and now? now I have a cute new skirt for my little girl!
At the expense of one needle...
Lest you think this is a one time thing - I also have a few other crafts that I made with my Young Women at church... at least one of which began its life on Pinterest :)
So now I need a new board: "Things I can actually vouch for"....
