Well then.....I guess it's been a little while since I've been able to post to my blog....YIKES!! I miss it dearly and feel 100% disconnected from my blog friends and family....and that depresses me a bit....not to mention my Not Me List is getting really long....but such is life.

I am finally caught up with sewing and have a few minutes for an update for the past month.

I am up and running with NamHee Designs & Alterations & have been busy taking orders & altering clothes! I am in the process of designing a website.....turns out that there is a reason people get paid lots of money for doing that! Ugh, I'd love to snap my fingers and have that be done. I'll be sure to post again when it is up and running.

So almost all my spare time is spent sewing. I have been keeping very busy with alterations and baby gifts. I finally took a few pictures of the most recent gifts. These are burp rag sets with little matching blankets.

The green & brown set. I also do a blue boy set & another neutral set with yellow & brown with orange & turquoise accents....super cute!

I had a request for a few hooded towels. She wanted pink with a ladybug theme to match her granddaughters newly painted room.

And the main part of my day.... long lost snapshots from the past month

Goldfish #1 finally died.....1 down, 5 more to go.
R.I.P Cinderella.

I don't remember every having a set Easter tradition growing up.
Our family does the following.....
1. I "splurge" on a brand new pretty dress from Walmart.
2. We paint Easter eggs & discuss the real meaning of Easter.
3. We have an egg hunt Easter morning.

Yay Stella! Her eggs really weren't very "hidden"....but she had fun.

Ahhh....collecting the goods!

I went solo to Chicago visit one of my best friends, Megan.
We are both pregnant and due about a week apart!
The belly on belly is a weird sensation....Megan LOVED it

This is me stuffing my face with the most glorious bakery rolls on earth. About a 10 minute walk from Megan's place....I had been craving them for months....mmmm....sooooo delicious

Megan & Stephen's son Calvin.
We were buddies.....right.....or he was really afraid of me.

Peter stayed home with the girls & took them to the Big Bug exhibit.

Stella inherited a lion costume from her cousin. Looks like that's what she'll be for Halloween this year.

Stella still wears her princess crown as if she just got it from the store.

Home Depot finally sent us a gift card to replace the items not considered "attached" to our vehicle. So....while Home Depot was blacklisted....we're not stupid....we'll use the money on the gift card & then reinstall blacklisted status. If you don't know anything about the incident, then click here.

I inherited a baby grand piano as my wedding gift from my parents. It has been stored an another woman's house for years. We do NOT have the space for a baby grand....but we did for an upright. We traded it in the baby grand this is actually a full size digital piano with volume control, touch sensor keys, programmed songs, & more. It's awesome. I am giving Sofia lessons & she is doing really really well. I won't be surprised if she is a concert pianist someday.

My Sofia baby turned 5 on April 26th. We had cousins over for pizza & ice cream on the 27th.....nice belly Rach....ugh.

All her cousins were able to come, including Henry & Sammy. Sammy is almost a year!

All the kids ran like crazy animals around outside playing some sort of tag game that included lots of screaming & getting dirty. And when the evening drew on....they all AMAZINGLY sat & watched a beginning of a SILENCE!!

Stella is cruising around on her bike super fast these days....which sometimes force me to "jog"....which does not agree with my giant belly.

Sofia loves to color with chalk.....and sometimes her face & hair get covered in chalk dust.


Sandy said... have been so missed around these parts! Congratulations on the fish death. Love your baby stuff! Very cute.

Erin said...

Your creations are soooooooo adorable! I wish I could do that!

Your are looking good Mama!

Julie said...

Yes. Love the baby stuff.

So, you need to tell me the name of the movie those kids are watching. I might have to own it if I could get those same results, even just once.

It's too late now, but I'd have charged you $145 for the website as it is today.
