Random things I would blog about if I ever had time...

On Friday I wanted to join in on the Frugal Friday holiday decorating addition over at The Shabby nest.

I wanted to show the stockings I made out of old quilts. So fun, so frugal, so fabulous. Love them. But I never got around to sharing my fun, frugal, fabulous stockings on Frugal Friday because I was too busy.

Busy watching this sweet little baby nephew of mine and busy celebrating the birth of my own sweet baby, Waylon.

My baby is five now. I can't believe it. Five. How did this happen. I'm not mourning this though. Nope. In fact I think it is rather exciting to have my youngest child be five. This is the first time in over 18 years that I've had a five year old as my youngest (Paige almost made it. She was four and a half when Easton was born) and I think it's fabulous. I can't wait to see what lies ahead for me when all of my kids are in school. What will I be when I am an official all kids in school grown up person? Fun discoveries await me I'm sure. Fun, fun, fun.


And if I ever had time I would also blog about the new wall we are having built in our loft. So exiting! It will be another bedroom for now and an office later (as more kids fly the nest). We felt inspired to call a friend to build it and it all fell into place very quickly in fact it would be getting done today if Rick hadn't needed him for another job, but still it should be done before Christmas and I'm so happy.

And last but not least. For my mom and sis-in-law Mindy here is the picture of me in the new super cute apron (made by my super cute sister Jillene) that I got during the white elephant gift game at our family Christmas party this weekend. I told them that I was going to wear it with a string of pearls around my neck to which Mindy asked, "And nothing else?" Which made me laugh because when I told Rick that I was going to steal the apron from my nephew Mason, who had opened it first, he said, "And I want you to wear it with nothing else." Ha-ha so funny.

And look, it's reversible too! Fabulous! And about the wearing it with nothing else idea...
Hmm, maybe after we finish P90x. What's that you ask?
Now that I will save for another post.

Love it!
So you guys in for P90x... I'm starting Jan 4th! Are you guys doing the diet too? I did the first 6 weeks before I got swine flu and then decided to wait till the new year. For me I didn't get the results I wanted unless I was 100% strict with the diet. You already look amazing!!!

My baby just turned 5, too. And I also think it is exciting to think of what I'll do when I am a grown-up with all my kids in school person! I may still have a little one around for some of the time, though, since I'm doing daycare--but only part-time. It's been almost 16 years since I had no kids under the age of 5. Love the stockings and the apron! Annette, if you read Lynn's blog you will know a little more about P90x.

I can't believe the cutest apron in the world is also reversible.

I say, apron + pearls + matching high heels = good idea :)

Cute stockings and congrats on the new room!
