Project 2010

This is what I made 2 days ago!

I made this apron out of an old tea towel that Mr.T's Grandmother gave us for christmas last year. Ok ok so you thinking last christmas? Yes, last christmas. Its kind of a funny story. Here it goes. Mr.T's Grandma gave us a box last christmas, on the box it said "Do not open untill 1/1/10." So, we didn't opened it untill 10/30/10. Yes, you saw it right 10/30/10. We kinda forgot about it. Oops! Mr. T's parents came into town last week and said y'all need to open that soon. So, we did and this is one of the things she gave me. An old tea towel. The first thing I said was I'm making this into an apron! And, I did...I really like it a lot! The fabric is from the scrap material I had from my quilt I made. (I'm finially getting to the binding you'll see pics when I'm finished with it.) I used Missouri Star Quilt Companie's tea towel apron tutorial online. I LOVE that website its the bomb! They also have great deals on their Daily Deal website.

And, this is Mr. T's baby!! Well project in process

This is going to be a headboard for our bed. He isn't totally done with it yet. He is going to put red wood behind it....he's such a good daddy and hubby! 

PS Braydon had to get shots today : ( poor baby he didn't like it at ALL!!!! Lol he's quite the drama king!! lol The girls in the doctors office thought he was not really, but I sware it sounded like it. It was quite hillarious...kinda in a feel bad for him, but know he's being SO dramatic kinda way.

Pumpkin patch here we come!!!

Well Saturday we went to the pumpkin patch! It was lots of fun kinda chilly (glad we took our jackets). Braydon really enjoyed it. Showered on us for a sec.
He was totally into at first!

Then not so much after they got back. He said it was bumpy! haha

Then we rode the hay ride out to the pumpkin patch
They picked the perfect pumpkin

In Braydon's words "Its so heavy for me!"

                                                         Maize Maze!!!

He was off to the races....the duck races that is!

He loved shooting this thing. It was a pumpkin shooter thing. Pretty cool I was afraid he was going to shoot the kid working it haha

Favorite place when Fall comes Around!!! LOVE IT!!

Quilt top finished!!!

So, on the 20th I finished my first quilt I designed, cut, sewed all by myself!! With the help of Missouri Star Quilt Company's start to finish baby quilt tutorial. They have great tutorials if you are learning to quilt, and don't want to go fork up big bucks to go to a class. This is my new found hobby, and I love it. It look me about a year to finally get the guts to pick out fabric and sit down, and sew by myself. I learned how to sew my first stitch about a year ago as well. My unbiological Grandma taught me how to cut with a rotary cutter. She taught me how to make an apron. I also bought my first sewing machine about a year ago as well. Singer Simple it was like 50 bucks at walmart. I had a gift card so it actually cost me nothing. So, glad I got it I just wanted one that I could start sewing on, not complicated just a sit down and sew. And, for its debut!!! Here it is in all its glory!!!!
The corners are NOT lined up very well, and the borders are kinda lumpy. Oh well at least I finished it. Now on to basteing, quilting, and binding it. Hopefully I'll be getting that done this next week. I HAVE TO start on Christmas gifts. This was originally was going to be give as a gift, but I changed my mind. It has all the colores in my house, and its my first so its staying with me. : )

Also, I love fall!!! Here is my autumn maple!! LOVE IT!!! It dropped its leaves yesterday though.

Fertility Business once again!!

Well I haven't updated on my getting prego stuff yet, so I guess I'll start again.

I started my Metformin again BLAH!! I hate that stuff it makes me SO sick to my stomach for the first month, but oh well I just need to suck it up because it'll all be well worth it in the end. So, its been a week that I started it so next week I have to take 2 a day. And, then it'll hopefully make me ovulate. Cross your fingers, get to prayen because last time I started taking this stuff it helped me with in 2 months we got prego, but then miscarried. But, the good thing was I actually got prego. So, we will see!!

This weekend we are hopefully going up to Colorado to see the leaves changing! Hopefully Mr. T said he might have to work : ( So, if we do get to I'll post so awesome pics!! I heart Colorado!! But, deep down I miss good ole Texas!

BTW I made Pioneer Women's Chicken Fried Steak last night it was delish. With homegrown picked straight from my garden mashed potatoes, and green beans (not picked from my garden). My honey has really been working LONG hours like from 4:30 AM to 7:00 PM from Monday till Saturday. That was last weeks hours. So, I thought I would make something that he would really enjoy. It was the first time I've ever made chicken fried steak. I'm doing this thing with one of my teachers from jr. high on Facebook where we make at least one dish a week that we haven't ever made. I think it'll be fun kinda mix things up. I did my menu planning and next week we will be having shrimp creol!! Yummmmmyyyy

Gone fishing!!

Braydonut wanted to go fishing this weekend SUPA bad!!! I mean thats all he talked about Daddy is going to take me fishing. We'll once I informed Mr. T. He's like well I guess that means I need to take him! I said Yes Yes you do he needs some Daddy time. So, Mr. T. was at Walmart getting his fishing license and gets Braydonut a new fishing pole and reel. Its called an Ugly Stick. Totally love it!! haha I used it and was like ok I'm getting a pink one of thes. Anywho, we went out to one of our friends house who lives on the Animas River. And, we'll this is what we caught!
I had the catch of the day whoot whoot!!! Kinda felt bad because Braydonut didn't get anything oh well thats life! haha
But, anywho I documented his first real time fishing here ya go!

He started practicing the night before trying to get the float in a 5 gallon bucket! SO redneck not going to lie!! haha
My boys chillin
His first time in a bait shop! He was so proud of those worms!
First time casting by himself!

This reminds me of an old man sitting in his chair drinking a cold one watching the fish! haha
And, then keeping it real Braydon got mad for some reason threw the pole down into the river and cried! He has a majoy temper on him we are trying to get him out of that business!!
Daddy giving him a come to Jesus talk haha
Life is now better!!!

Looky at what I made today!!!

Strawberry jam!! Whoop whoop!

July 6, 2010

4th of july cupcakes on the 5th of july because thats how we roll

YUMMMY!! Little man and I made these last night!!!
I made them with a white box cake 
Divided 3 cups with the batter put blue food coloring in one red in on and then kept the other white
scooped white, blue, and red into the tins.
Baked as directed and this is what came out!! SUPA cute!
So the icing didn't do what I wanted it to do I put blue and red into the icing mixture and it didn't come out as cool as I was predicting! Oh well its probably because I used cream cheese frostin instead of buttercream I think the buttercream would have been more stiff. Oh well I LOVE cream cheese frosting though plus I had to improvise because I didn't have enough butter!
Recipe for Cream Cheese Icing:
1/2 C. Butter (soften)
1 8 oz. package cream cheese (soften)
1 tsp. Vanilla
3 C. powdered sugar or 1 box
Cream all together...put into a gallon size freezer bag and cut off tip and then slap onto cupcake!! or you can make it all fancy like, but who cares if its just for your family just munch them up!!! They won't last very long promise!!!!

This is where I got the idea! Her cupcakes are SUPER pretty!! I hope one day mine will look like her's haha

YAY!!! For Our founding Father's!!! GOD bless America!!

I love fireworks hands down!! Spent this fourth with our church family watching the fireworks!!
Mr. T and our unbilogical Mother haha
the boys playing with sparklers!
little boys playing on the fourth!!
One of my TX friends came to see me!! We'll she was actually here staying with her roommates family, but for my bonus she came to see me!! Its so weird her roommates family lives in the same town as we do in NM. My buddy and I went to college together and worked together in TX! When she moved away she ended having a roommate from the same place as where we live now! It was totally a God thing! That probably didn't make sense, but you kinda get the jist haha
Oh how I missed her!!!
And, for Mr. T's day off this is what he would be doing! haha

Ok so its been FOREVER since I've updated! We'll our last cycle of clomid worked, but six weeks later we had a miscarriage. So, that was kinda a bumber, but I know the good Lord has something bigger and better in store for us! April 7-11 We went to Mesquite, NV for a golf tounement that Mr. T went to for his company. Lots of fun we went to Las Vegas while we were there because it was like an hour away ate at the Venitian in a swanky italian restraunt! Then going back to NM we went through Zion National Park WAY cool!!! Tried to go to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, but it was closed off due to the winter. So, we kept going went to the Vermillion Cliffs then found a random guy who stopped and told us we could still see the Canyon if we wanted to go on a 10 minute hike so we did. Pretty spontaneous for Mr. T we were like we'll if the guy tries to follow us and kill us well its a good place to do that it was in the middle of no where in the middle of the dessert! It was awesome though anywho then we stopped at the Navajo Bridge and saw my first Califoria Condor AWESOME!!! Then came home. So, much fun at exiting for us!

Then for our anniversary the weekend of April 22 we went to Pagosa Springs,CO with our friends Derrick and Alicia. It was a blast went and hiked down a mountain to get to the river to go fishing. Not recommeded with a 3 year old but he mannaged. Then went to a Animal wildlife place it was fun too then went to Trinidad, CO for Mr. T's work. Pics to come! Those are our adventures thus far this year! More updating to come!

Prego business duece!

We'll  my doctor had to put me on different medication because I still hasn't ovulating I was taking

50 mg Clomid on days 5-9 of my cycle

that was it.

Then I had to be put on

metphormine one pill twice daily to help my overies to work. Its some new thing they are doing, but that dang metphormine was making me SO sick to my stomach not cool! its typically used for diabetes but now they are trying to use it combined with clomid. So, they upped my clomid to 100 mgs.

new meds:

Metphormine one pill twice daily
100 Mg Clomid days 5-9

So, hopefully it'll work

It did I FINALLY OVULATED!!!! YEAH!!!! We'll see in a couple of weeks and see if it gets me preggo! Wish us luck!!!

PS this is my experience not saying all doctors perscribe the same meds, but this is what my doctor did and what works for me might work for you and it might not. Hope this is a little helpful.

Preggo Business

So, Mr. T gave me a idea for a subject. I'm pretty much one of those people who don't hide very much. And, perticuallary about pregnacy and getting preggo! I like to hear about friends experiences expecially the nasty stuff that NO ONE talks about and then it happens to you and your like why oh why didn't anyone tell me about this. I read that pregnancy book by jenny mccarthy when i was pregnant with Braydon and she let it all out good and bad!!!! I don't like surpises when it comes to birthing a 6 lb. child well he was 5 lbs 14 ounces but whos counting. Anywho this is what we are going to talk about today!

Having issues getting preggo!!!

So, we've been trying for like a year now and haven't had any luck. I've had past histories of hormonal issues dating back to when I was in 2nd Grade. I had percosius pubirty (sp?). Its when you start your period WAY before your supposed to! So, they gave me monthly shots all the way up to I think 5th grade to prevent me from starting. BTW its snowing HUGE flakes as I type. haha Anywho, so thats kinda what my past history had to do with. So, when Mr. T and I got preggo with Braydon it was a MAJOR no no we weren't married and to this day I hate that it had to happen like that, but God had a plan for us!!! I fully believe this because I wasn't having periods then so I wasn't ovulating the doctors say so it was a one in a million chance I got preggo at that time. And, it wasn't like we were doing it ALL the time! that was the first time we did it in like a month in a half! And, now we do it all the time and can't its crazy! Anyway sorry for the TMI, but I want ya'll to hear my experience no lines crossed because anyone could have the same experience and feel like they are the only ones going through it, but there isn't there are lots of women battling the same issues! So, I'm just throwing it all out there!  Anywho, this is my preggo business history lesson of my experience today. So, Monday I'll talk about what my doctors plan for meds and stuff is right now.

Sewing adventure

So, I have a new found hobby! SEWING!!! I love it so far it took me awhile to figure out how to use my machine, but my seragant grandma taught me well! The first project was an apron second a camera strap slipcover I made for my Canon T1i (love it by the way the camera that is)
