My baby turned 5 yesterday!!!

Who's a big 5 year old? Owen is, Owen is!!!
The first picture of the day as a 5 year old.
Some friends over for the afternoon coloring (among other things....)For dinner we went to Red Robin. Owen wanted to have the people sing to him. Here he is starting to open his gifts. Spencer gave him a transformer.
Mom gave him baby boy and blankie back from time out. (His two most favorite possesions)

The family gave him "de Blob" Wii game. With it came this t-shirt. Fun Fun!!
This weekend grandma and grandpa are coming for a visit. That will be the real birthday party. We are going to RideMakerz for his birthday. We went a few weeks ago to a friends birthday party and my kids went nuts. This was so much fun. They have not stopped talking about it since. It is sort of like build a bear but you make a truck or car instead of a teddy bear.
Happy Birthday my beautiful baby boy. I love you so much!!
I did some family research when I posted about my grandmother. I found out that she is the baby of her family too so that makes me the Baby Baby Baby and Owen is the Baby Baby Baby Baby because he is the youngest in his family. He is also my parents last grandchild. Number 14

Totally Frickin' Cool Owl Bag #2

Jennifer, Your bag is ready. I hope this will be perfect for your friends 30th birthday party. Maybe I should have made it in black??? Actually I guess 30 is the new 20 right?

The eyes are bakelite buttons. That is a vintage plastic from the 20's-30's.

Middle name meme

This is my grandmother Gertrude, my father's mother to whom I am named after. She went by Gert. Her birthday is March 17, 1898. Yes, my grandmother was born in the 1800's. My dad is the youngest of 5 and I am the youngest of 8. So that makes me the Baby Baby. She had 26 grandchildren and I was her last one.
G-Good Friend. I like to have a lot of friends.
E-Entertain. I like to have people over and have fun.
R-Resale. I love to go to resale shops and pilfer through old junk.
T-Toes. I love love love baby toes.
R-Read. I like to read fiction with happy endings. Life is too real right now so I need happy stories.
U-Unfortunate. Only that I was never able to meet this woman. She died before my dad had any children. I heard she made great pies.
D-Devoted. To my family and friends and to my love of making things.
E-Elated that I was able to complete this. It was really hard to do.

Hi. I just wanted to share with you what is currently on my screen saver.
Every time I turn on my computer I see this and it makes me smile. I took this when I went on hike with my family about a month ago. I need to go again and get some of the beautiful fall foliage. It is BEAUTIFUL up here....until the gray sets in.
My camera broke down a couple of days ago. I took it in to get it fixed.......21 days until I get it back? I told the "geek" how was I supposed to run a business or blog without my camera? His advice was to buy a back up. Like they are just a couple of bucks. Thank goodness for sisters that will lend you their camera. I will be back in business tomorrow with some baggy goodness for you. 7 to be exact. Hopefully tomorrow I will even add 2 more to pile. I want to do an overnight one because I am going to Chicago on a big girls trip. I am going to Style Maxx. It is merchandise mart. I am not sure exactly what it entails......but I will fill you in on that on Monday. All righty.....its late. Good night!!

What can happen in a week? A lot!!

I want to share with you one of the most beautiful sites of my week. Here is my friend Tina bringing me food for dinner.

We belong to a cooking club where we each take a night to cook for the other families and then the other nights we sit back a wait for our food to be delivered.

This has changed my life. My grocery bills have gone down, we are saving fuel from only firing up one oven and we are developing wonderful relationships.

If you ever have any questions about this, or if you want to start one of your own, let me know. I would be glad to help.

This is why I am all out of wack right now. This is what my kitchen looks like. Do you like my decorating?

We just had our carpets cleaned. Oh how I love when the carpets are cleaned.

This is my family room with no furniture in it and beautifully cleaned carpets. View 1

And View 2.....Captain Underpants is in my family room with his blanky.

My family room looks huge without any furniture.

We had the carpets cleaned yesterday but we wanted to give it a full 35 hours (and counting) before we put the furniture back.

Three new bags and 2 bags that have already been featured on here are going to SoBo Style in the morning.

Hopefully I will get the other 2 done before the mail gets here.

I have been trying to get bags done like a crazy lady but things keep coming up.

I had a Jewelry party on Friday. I invited about 40 women to come and only 4 showed up. Yikes. I have never in my life had that kind of a turn out. I guess my lessons learned are

one, dont have your party on the first Friday of the month because people might not turn their calendar over before your party,

two send out more reminders, and

three, only have parties that you are willing to sell sell sell the product!!!! I am not much of a fashion jewelry type of person. I would much rather have the diamonds and gold thank you!! (I am also allergic to most metals) However, this was not all bad. The four ladies that did make it, we all had a wonderful time and the Jewelry Lady did not do too bad either. Thanks ladies for a wonderful party and the after party

The last thing to share with you is that I have given up Diet Coke!!! The real reason for the dragging this week I think. This has been very difficult for me because I am seriously addicted to it. I have been feeling really bad for the last three and over those years it has gotten progessively worse. And my diet coke addiction started about 3 years My sister sent me this email telling me how bad diet coke is for you and how they have linked it to so many joint issues such as, MS, Lupis, and Fibromyalgia. I have been having many of those symptoms of fibromyalgia. We will see how it goes. If anyone wants to get on the wagon with me let me know.
