check it out!!!

i'd love to have you in class :) 

ps... click on the words above to register for the class

i HAVE accomplished something

you MIGHT have noticed that little button over there ->
that says "home ec".

home ec is an online class i'm taking right now and
it's been a true lifesaver this week. 

it's giving me projects to work on as i get my strength back... and keeps me from feeling 
COMPLETELY lazy and worthless during this time when i have to force 
myself to slow down.

i made myself a fancy new ironing board

and made a few things for a friend's baby shower 

are doing a phenomenal job teaching the class!!! 
if you think you might be interested in taking a crafty online class, follow their blogs...
rachel and elsie have one coming up that features projects for kiddos!!!

and dreaming

our NYC trip is coming up... if only my closet contained everything found over at polyvore, i'd end up with the perfect outfit for every day of the trip!!

if you had mono like me, you'd have the time to spend putting dozens of outfits together at polyvore. is it just me or is that website pretty much like barbie for grown-ups? (my favorite toys growing up were my barbies, btw)

on this first day of school...

which was a great success, by the way...

i thought i'd share with you one last installment of 
sanford summer 2010

one of my favorite things we did this summer... 

a friendly game of "pirates"

the kids were really into it... and made sure michael and i were really into it as well

sarah was pretty feisty... i called her scrappy the whole night

haaaapy haaaappy biiiirthdayy baaayybe

on this day, 33 years ago... the world got the gift of my michael

he's my favorite. remember this post

and today... of all days... i am sick with mono. been sick all week. maybe two... three weeks to go??

so let me add one to the list: he just wants to take care of me today.

suddenly i'm being forced to take life at a snail's pace. when this is the time of the year that i like to take life fast and furious. 

i should just enjoy it right? that's what isaiah says. last night i was in tears over the whole thing and he said "i love being sick! it means you just get to lay around and watch movies!" 

okay, i get it. still. maybe some sewing projects can still be in my near future?

fourth flava

of the whopping 22 video clips i captured of the quirky fourth of july parade in arroyo seco, this is about the best one i got...

the one i really wanted to show you (the pirate float & gypsy jazz band) only shows the backs of people's heads. but this one shows you a little taste of the parade we saw on the fourth:
