Fun With the Littles

This is a picture of my best friend, Theresa's kids. Theresa and I have been friends since 6th grade and I love that I am so close to her kids to be called Auntie Megs! I love being able to spend time with them as both Theresa and her hubby come from big families. I took this picture in December when the kids came over for their Christmas presents. They love to give each other hugs and are almost always really nice to each other, but I am sure that will change as they get older :)

Yesterday I took the kids to Lowe's for the kids building workshop. They each got a bag of goodies, including an apron and goggles... wish I would have taken my camera, they were adorable! It was the first time either of them had used a hammer and I was surprised they caught on so quick! Cameron even managed to hammer his planter to the table!!! Talk about a good time.

It is times like these that I feel really lucky to have such great friends. They listen to me when I complain about being single and not having children of my own. They also tell me I can take their kids whenever I want!! I am patiently waiting for the birth of my next niece or nephew from my other best friend, Angela. This is another great situation where I can be Auntie Megs to a beautiful soul. Unlinke Theresa, Angela and I are only children, so I am looking forward to being 1 of 2 Aunties along with her sister in law. I am sure when the baby is here I will be snapping pictures and posting them like the doting Aunt I love to be!

Crossing my fingers

As I was typing my first post yesterday I received a phone call from Lapeer EHS. They were calling to set up an interview with me for next Tuesday! I am so excited to get back out there and start the process..... It has been 7 long months since my temporary government position ended and I have been praying ever since. I hope that I can impress and that they like what they see in me :)

Here is a peek at the pair of earrings that I listed today in my etsy shop. Take a peek:

What I did today....

Posted by Picasa
The pictures I took and edited for my etsy shop! I think they turned out pretty well....

A beautiful sunny day

I spent a few hours outside in this lovely 70 degree weather to take some new pics for the etsy store. I started out in long pants and a long sleeve shirt and quickly decided I needed to work on my tan! The pics turned out great, some editing to be done when the sun goes down.....

My lovely neighbor stopped by on her bike. At 65+ she inspires me to get off my duff and get out there on my bike!! Wish I would have taken her pic, she was so cute with her retro blue Schwinn and red helmet. She was so sweet to invite me over to work on my lastest sewing projects, as she has been a sewer for decades. Since I bought my machine a few months ago, I have yet to use it! I did buy some fabric and some patterns, just haven't figured out how to put them together!!

Well, since this is my first post I should tell you a few things about me. I am nearing my 30th birthday in 2 weeks (from today), am a single gal, currently applying for almost any job, awaiting the arrival of my 3rd niece or nephew and generally happy with life. There are times I wish I could have done things differently, but don't we all..... I love to read, cook and be crafty. Cheers to new adventures!
