I am sure that everyone has seen the youtube clip bloodah it is a classic! hahaha
What brings up this you ask? Well today I gave blood!
I find it so important now to give blood! After going through every thing I did when I had ITP I understand how necessary it is for blood donations. Did you realize when you give blood you save 3 adults lives or 5 babies? It literally took me no more than 10 minutes when all the questions were over! It is really was one of the greatest thing to do and takes virtually no time!
Anyways I HIGHLY SUGGEST EVERYONE GIVE BLOOD! If you dont know a place or are nervous call me! I will go with you and drive you! Or I believe our church is going to hold a blood drive pretty soon! So you can do that too!
Anyways! Hope everyone had a great day!
Today was my last day of summer school for bible! YAY!

WELL, I have not updated in a while! I have been busy with school and catching up with friends and seeing family!
I spent the whole weekend with my sister and my niece Kathryn! She is three months and one week old and SOOO Precious. She is beginning to learn how to smile and I LOVE it! It was so fun just to spend time with her!
Also, this week we did a lot of organizing, my mom and I realized that we have lived in our house for like sixteen years and some of the cabinets and things we haven't gone through in that long, so we finally went through all of that and de-cluttered our life. It was amazing to see the amount of Junk that was sitting around our house. We cleaned my play room upstairs from when I was young.... and boy was that a task going through old toys, books, puzzles deciding what was worth keeping for my nieces and nephew and potentially my kids one day!
Anyways sorry this was such a boring post but not much has really gone on and I haven't really had time to sew this week!
Thanks for reading!

First question... WHAT IN THE WORLD WAS I THINKING!?!? hahaha o well... It turned out pretty cute in the end!
First I cut the fabric out and made the tab to hold the laptop in.... and since my sewing machine embroiderers I embroidered my initials on it! It look SUPER CUTE....
After that I started drawing my quilting line.... Did I have any idea what quilting lines were before I started? NO but did I figure it out? YES! So that was fun! It let me play around a little more with my machine! It was quite a task but it makes the end product look about 100 times better.
After that I added the next thing of velcro and it all started to come together! In the end I was really pleased with the product and how it turned out... It fit my laptop really well and looks super cute!
OH! Not to mention I made my own bias tape so it would match my case! Had I heard of Bias tape before yesterday? NOPE! hahaha I am learning a WHOLE lot and having a lot of fun!
Here is the Finished Product--
Thanks for reading!
So, this was supposed to go up last night.... but it didnt happen but here ya go!
Soooo I have had a nannying job for a couple of days but since the kids are still in school I have had the liberty to do what I want during the day and then when the kids get home just chill here with them!
It has been a big change for me because I have been going to bed at like 11…. Not the usual one or two in the morning. Any who, today while the children were at school I got to meet up with one of my friends in the BFF crew LAUREN! We went to Rio Mambo! Then after we went to Hobby Lobby so I could get supplies to start sewing with!
I got home and broke open the sewing machine and attempted the “Organized Bed Pocket” so I could stick my phone in it during the night, so that it wouldn’t be laying on the ground! It came out fairly decent I was proud of myself! It is one of the first things I have done with like directions hahaha.
After that I cleaned up real fast and mom made pork chops, (then I had some leftover birthday cake! The kids had church tonight so I got back to their house around 8pm and now they are working on homework, showering and getting ready for bed!
Overall this has been a pretty chill week! I am probably going to get to hang out with my sister at the end of this week and most of the weekend! And I only have one more week of summer school left! (for one class at least)! Then I start Chem at TCC….
Anywho! I hope everyone is having a GREAT week!

So... Today was my BIRTHDAY! It was pretty low key most of the day.... I woke up late and my BFF Emily made me homemade cinnamon rolls! YUMMM.... after that we took an adventure to Sewing world. I am not sure if a lot of people know but I really like sewing, nothing in particular I just LOVE sitting down and making things. So today my parents bought me a sewing/embroidery machine. It is really cool! I am so excited to start using it! I got a book that I saw on Lullaby Lubbock's blog! It's called One-Yard Wonders and it is a great book with so many cute designs! So tomorrow I start on trying to make things out of it!

Next on the agenda was Meatballs! In the meatballs is oatmeal (Quaker Oats :)) Minced Onion, milk, Salt and pepper! I stuck them in the freezer for like 15 minutes (instead of the fridge for 45) , fried em' and stuck them in the oven!
What is it about the rain that makes my body not want to do anything? I feel like I could literally just sit on the couch all day and do ABSOLUTELY nothing. I have been sitting in the kitchen trying to work on my summer school homework and I cannot focus! I really want to get it done, but in all honesty I have NO motivation to do it! The sound of rain just makes me wanna fall over and go to sleep forever... I just LOVE it, yet feel so unproductive.

So, I had to get a blog for my Bible class, and I really didn't know what it was going to be like, but I have really enjoyed writing in it so far. So I guess I am going to make it a habit and write in it frequently? Just whatever I am feeling or to update you if something big happens, or I learn something cool I want to share with you!
