I am sooooooo glad I found the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway contest!  I have met a lot of  wonderful people from all over the world.  And I have even won 3 awesome prizes!  It really amazes me how many people are interested in crafts and sewing, like I am.  I have been like a kid in a candy store, going from blog to blog following people and drooling over their creations. I have also figured out I have ADHD, when it comes to craft making.  I can't focus one just one area of crafts.  I want to do them all and I want to do them now! :-)

My FABULOUS winnings and links for you to see their designers shops!

Look For Better Days

Yesterday, I visited one of my most hated places on earth.  The dentist office.  Anxiety fills my entire body, before I even get pulled out of my driveway, every time I have a dentist appointment.  To say I loath sitting in that chair is putting it mildly.  After heart surgery and two c-sections.... I still have to have my husband in the room with me to hold my hand.    I avoid going, till I have no other choice.  Yesterday, was one of those days.  My upper two wisdom teeth were taking out 5 years ago.  At that time, the lower ones had yet to come through enough to be pulled... and I was in no way going to be put to sleep to have them cut out.... just not going to happen.  Side note: The dentist had told us, much to T's  amazement, that I have a rather small mouth... and that was somehow a factor in why I had so much trouble with  my wisdom teeth.  LOL!   So, yesterday after spending 4 days with a bottle of ibuprofen, I gave in and went to have one of the bottom ones pulled.  All I can say is, I can't wait for this to heal up!  That bottle of ibuprofen is still my friend.  Salt water, clove oil, and a heating pad have now joined our little clique.  I have said all of this to say:  Even when we are having rough times, we always have an option to look for the better day ahead.  Eventually, no matter our situation, God always brings us to that better day.  :-)

Hubby Turns 35!

We returned home from Disney World last week.  I think the only bad thing about being at DW, is not wanting to leave.  My kids had the time of their lives.  My biggest child (that's of course my husband) enjoyed his surprise 35th birthday dinner with Mickey and the gang  at Chef Mickey's!  I can't believe I kept the reservations a secret for so long.  I am TERRIBLE at keeping secrets, especially when I'm excited about it!  Okay, so I did tell my daughter, my mom, my mother in law, and my dogs.  But still, I didn't tell the birthday boy, till we were on the way to the restaurant!  ;-)
