The Fabric Shopper: Fabric Giveaway Anna Maria Horner from fabricworm!

I have been so obsessed with fabric lately and have some projects to post but want to tell anyone else obsessed about this give away. The Etsy shop that is giving the fabric has become my main place to look. I just received fabric from her today and am so happy with the process. Here is a link to the giveaway

She did it! She got up in front of over 100 kids and auditioned with her song. A friend told her before that she had stage fright and Rory said "I don't." I had been telling her that she would probably not get into the show since they like to have groups doing it. They decided this year to let everyone in. Crap. Don't get me wrong. She is too cute but I figured the audition would be the end of the process. Now what?

Another Do

I became obsessed with hair blogs last month and have enjoyed Rory letting me do her hair once a week. There are so many blogs to see with tutorials, links and all. Here is where I got the hair do for today with a few changes.

Rory's Dancing and Hair

Just to let my loyal fans know, I started doing a lame but effective Pregnancy Yoga video and I am having a lot less pain. That with my milk steamers keeping middle of the night heartburn and leg cramps away I am doing pretty good.

Rory was in a couple month long dance class and here is the show.

Auditioning for the school talent show has been interesting. She does not want to sing while Jt plays the piano or do the dance from the recital. She wants to do a song she made up. Roger was sure if she saw herself do it do it she would change her mind. Wrong. She thought it was perfect. Just so you know, she had crazy hair day at school.

This video is her doing the background music. . .because she thought she had to have background music to audition. I laughed all day long about that one.

Here she is with cute hair to make up for the crazy hair day video. She has been letting me do her hair on Sundays since we made the bows. I took the picture so she could see what her hair looks like. Good Fun!

Pain in the Bum

Posted by Picasa

Well meaning people have been asking how many days I have left and I say 3 months much to their shock. Its never other moms that ask, only men and older people. I say I have a lot of growing to to so cuz I get huge. It will probably get annoying soon but right now I just laugh.

I started to get Braxton Hicks contractions a couple weeks ago. When I told my midwife her student said "that's exciting". We both said "No!" Annoying is more the word since these mild annoyances do nothing to progress the process.

Up until a couple weeks ago people would ask how I am feeling and I would say "Great!" and I meant it. Now I am not feeling so hot.
See- I've got this killer pain in my sacrum- the bone in the middle of this picture
Every step hurts but I have to keep walking. Sitting hurts but I have to keep sitting. I have been stretching (pelvic tilts and such) like mad which helps but not enough. I have to lay down on my back on a hard floor to put my back back together. If you have any advice let me know!

I was also having intense arch pain making it hard to walk after noon especially if I had an exercise walk in the morning. I bought arch support and if I wear shoes all day I am doing better. I even wore them in my church shoes yesterday with my new non high heal shoes and I came home for the 1st time in a long time without pain.

Happiness to my Soul

There are a lot of things that bring happiness to my soul. Currently I am finding happiness due to this handy device

I had never heard of a cocomotion before last year's book club featuring different flavors of hot chocolate made in multiple cocomotions borrowed by the hostess. Hmm. . . I thought Roger would dig that so I bought him one for Christmas.
In case you were wondering this device quickly whips up up to 4 frothy cups of hot chocolate after you merely pour in milk(or water) and hot chocolate power(or syrup). Presto! Perfect temperature and all.
Now I do like hot chocolate but what really brings me happiness is a milk steamer. I have been buying that for years at coffee houses but now my friends, I can make them at home. Some milk and some flavored coffee creamer and I am in Heaven. I have tried almond(at coffee houses) Krispy creme flavored(at a mock Krispy Kreme), gingerbread, vanilla, and hazelnut. Yum yum! I need to find the flavored syrups to see if they are better but right now I am feeling good.
