I got Tagged by one of my oldest friends Rachel. http://rachelbanks.blogspot.com/
So here are my Seven Things
1. I hate Shoes and socks and therefore have the ugliest roughest feet in the world, Because I don't wear them unless I have to.
2. I love to hear celebrity gossip. I know the names and faces of celebrities even if I don't know their shows or music.
3. I'm horrible at remembering names of actual people I've met.
4. Growing up we had tons and tons of animals (mostly birds but also several dogs) now I am not an animal person and I dread the day my girls talk me into a pet.
5 My first job was singing in an Opera at the age of 12.
6. I iron everything.
7. I had Carly without an epidural (not by choice) and I want to see if I can do it again, but I don't really want another child.
So now I'm supposed to Tag 7 people. I don't think I have seven people to tag, But for starters I'll tag. Stacey Jacobson, Angela Daley, Andrea Bentzen, and Heather Zaby.
Have fun Ladies!

How funny that the picture that came up was one of Me and Jill's little Lucy. I really truly didn't know what was going to pop up. This is Lucy on the day she was blessed. I made her dress for her. One of my favorite creations, for one of my favorite people.

We went with my sister and her husband and little boy Atticus.
Atty is such a cute little boy, you can't help but smile when he is around. And he loves his crazy cousins.
Grandma Phyllis came along too.
Pumpkin head Brianna.
Cutiest little pumpkins ever.
Sunday afternoon we painted some pumpkin decorations to put in the yard.
The girls did a pretty good job.
I really love Halloween time!

This was Homecoming my junior year. My mom made my dress. And I think we look pretty darn good.
Now we don't have very many occasions to dress up, and even less to go dancing. Last year Jon's company had a big Christmas party with a fancy dinner and dancing. It was so fun and reminded us of our high school days. I even convinced Jon to dance with me.
We may be older and heavier, but we still look good together. And Jon will always be my sweetheart and best friend.

I never was a very big fan of Halloween. That is until I had kids and found out how much fun it is to dress them up. Now I start planning months in advance for their costumes and spend way more time and money than I should so they will be the cutest little characters out there.
Brianna was 6months old her first Halloween. I made her the little flower bonnet and bought the green Jammies to keep her warm. She was the cutest little flower around.
When Bri was 18 months old She had the nickname of Brianna Banana. So what else should she be for Halloween but a Banana. This costume took some figuring out but was too fun to make.
When Bri was 2 she loved Curious George. It was the one year I bought her costume.
What's the fun of 2 kids if you can't coordinate their costumes? We joked at the time at the irony of the costumes because Brianna was not an angel. And Carly was my little angel baby. Ah, how times have changed. Now Carly is my devil baby and Bri is an Angel (most of the time)
Brianna decided she wanted to be Ariel months in advance and we couldn't figure out what Carly should be for the longest time. But Ariel needs Sebastian to protect her so I made Carly the Crab.
Brianna wanted to be a Pretty witch last year, and Carly was very happy to be her kitty.
I volunteered to make Brianna's best friend's costume too. She was a Funky Witch.
So this year's challenge is to make Bell, for Brianna and Cindereda (or Cinderella) for My Carly. Since there will be at least a dozen other Little princesses running around I want my two to stand out. Besides, when else can you make an over the top princess out fit for you 3 year-old. SO stay tuned you can see the finished result in a few weeks.

It wasn't the best weather for our little trip but that's okay. Saturday morning we headed into Vernal and watched part of a kids rodeo. My friend Tammy was there, and 2 of her kids were in it.
We got back to the cabin late afternoon and went rock hunting.
little cheese balls.
Then we made S'mores and watched movies. and played cards.

So, my clothes are starting to be a little loose and my skinny jeans are all I wear now. I'm feeling pretty good. SO the other night we had gone out and I felt good and I thought I looked good. Then I passed by a mirror and thought 'who is that fat lady?' It was me. I find it funny some times that I think I'm looking so good and everyone else just see the little fat lady. No one has really commented on how I look and I realized that it is because the main place my weight seems to be coming from is my butt. One of my favorite commercials is the one for Slimquick http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amE18rxXhJQ&feature=related This is what happens to me only in my bum. So next time you see me and you can't really tell that I've lost some weight, Just check out my butt. 20 down. A lot more to go.
