June Travels May 27, 2010

So- the month of June is going to be a crazy one!  We are now at my parents house in Indiana for my sister’s graduation from High School.  Chloe and I will be staying here for a few weeks, but Tony will be going back home to begin summer school classes.  The trip here took about six hours, and surprisingly, it went well.  Tony and I drove separately, which made me nervous about driving in St. Louis because I get jittery in heavy traffic.  Thankfully, Chloe took her nap during the stressful parts.  Otherwise, I may have had a breakdown and crashed and died (exaggeration… I think).  So- after Tony leaves, I will be chilling out at my parents house, visiting family, and catching up on some reading and knitting… hopefully.  I will also probably be organizing a huge garage sale.  After that, Chloe and I head down to Tennessee to visit my grandparents.  And during that time, we may or may not take a trip over to West Virginia to visit more family.  I am still debating that little side trip.

So- this whole time, Tony and I will be apart… which brings sadness.  We have done this kind of thing before, and it was difficult, so we are doing some things different this time.  First, we are setting aside specific times that we can be alone on the phone together.  Second, we are writing each other e-mails about our days.  So, hopefully that and Skype will make us have a better time apart.

As for my knitting, I made my sister an awesome beach bag for her graduation present.  I will try to get a picture of it up here sometime soon.  It was first attempt at a bag.  When I post the picture, I will post how I made it, etc.

Well, for now, that is all.  I will update in a few days or a couple weeks.  I am not sure when I will get the time!


Hello All! May 15, 2010

So I have officially entered by second trimester of pregnancy!  I am fifteen weeks along, and I am feeling much better overall!  No tummy aches!  I am super happy about this!  I have taken a short break from making things for my etsy shop because I am trying to make some things for someone for a special occasion.  No details until later- just in case that someone reads this…

Anyway, things are going well here.  Chloe is as cute as ever.  I love her more and more every day.  I am also starting to get attached to the new baby.  He or she is healthy so far.  We have a doctor’s appointment on Monday to make sure.

Tony is almost done with this semester.  It has been crazy!  For all of those Moms married to full time college students- I pray for you.  Please pray for me!  It can be like being a single parent sometimes.  I am just lucky that Tony is so diligent about making those times as short as possible.  He is really trying to keep family above school, which can be difficult with all the deadlines and papers and everything.  I will be so happy when he graduates!  Only one more year to go!

Well, that’s all for today!  I am a little tired, so this is just an update.  No funny stories.  Sorry.  Maybe next time.


Who am I? That’s for me to know and you to find out… April 16, 2010

Although my husband and one year old daughter mean the world to me, being a 22 year old stay at home (pregnant… again) Mom can sometimes make me feel a little like I’ve lost myself in some kind of large maze filled with diapers, little shoes, cooking utensils, and cleaning supplies.

I’ve decided I would like a little bit of creativity and relationships back in that maze that is my life. So, I’m starting to write, to create, and to read.  I have had an Etsy shop filled with beautiful examples of my creativity over the last year… which is to say that my shop has been completely empty ever since I created it.  Not anymore, my friend!  I have spent many long minutes retrieving my password to and have resolved myself to knit something and sell it, or at least get it up on that sad long forgotten page.  As you may have guessed, my shop’s name is Breezy Accessories, and if you put two and two together (i.e. the name of this blog) you will surely guess that the shop is what inspired me to blog.

And so, on top of my life stories, I’m planning to include upcoming projects that I will be posting on my shop and some tips for beginner loom knitters on how I got myself out of some kind of yarn mess or how I learned to do something new on the loom.  Hopefully this will just keep me accountable to actually using my Etsy shop.  Eventually, I will be learning to knit by hand, too,  and then you can just tune in for some laughs as I am sure to poke my eye out with one of the needles.

On top of that, I have set before me a schedule for daily activities.  Yes- I will be organized and structured and hopefully less prone to confusion and misplacement of important information.  If you pray- now would be a good time to say a little something on my behalf.

Speaking of prayer- that’s another thing I am attempting to freshen up.  I love Jesus, but right now I’m more of Me Freak than a Jesus Freak, so by the grace and patience of God, I will be taking some steps forward spiritually speaking too, which I believe will soak nicely into all the other aspects of my life and point all of me in the right direction.  And my husband secretly thinks about the hope that Jesus will eradicate my pregnant woman mood swings.  Yes, honey, I hope so too.

Well, I will be striving keep up with this whole blog thing.  Yep- you got me- I’m a first time serious blogger (meaning I had a blog once when I was like 15).  Wish me luck, and if you know me personally, kick my butt if you don’t hear from me at least once a week.  My goal is more, but hey- baby steps, right?
