My Creations Part 3

Here are some more outfits that I have just finished up for Miss Ella.

In High School, I never took Home Ec. I just didn't want to. I wish I would have known that I have a natural talent for sewing! And that I enjoy it so much!

I need to look more into the law changes for children's clothing, but I am thinking about opening a store on Etsy to sell some dresses. What do you guys think?

I hate doing buttons, this dress is fabulous because all you have to buy is the fabric. No extras!

Yes, this dress has two straps. You just can't tell in the picture.

This outfit was a total experiementation. It will work, but if you look at it closely, it has lots of errors!

I think this is going to be Ella's Easter dress.

A Good Day

I don't know how many of you read the link on the side about how my cancer treatments are going (and if you read it religiously, I apologize for only updating every 1 or 2 weeks!) but last week I had to skip my shot on Saturday because we were heading to Wisconsin.

I really didn't want to skip it because now my last day of treatment will be August 8th instead of August 6th.

But, I was excited to see how I would feel on Monday. And I gotta say, I feel pretty good.

I'm tired, but this is a different kind of tired. It's a "Kyler woke me up at 6 AM" kind of tired. It's actually a nice kind of tired. Not that "I am so utterly tired I can barely function" kind of tired.

On the down side though, I actually have a bit of an appetite. The Interferon apparently takes away some of my desire to eat. No wonder I have lost 20 lbs! However, I would totally gain the weight back in a heartbeat, if it meant I could have the energy to play with my babies and just get stuff done!

If I could get away with it, I would probably skip tomorrow's shot too. It would be awesome to feel this good two days in a row!

Our Weekend Getaway

This weekend Cody and I had a little alone time. We flew to Wisconsin for a Life Celebration of one of Cody's friends. They had a wonderful turnout and it was nice to hear all the wonderful stories about Cody's friend. He was a very well loved man.

The hardest part for me, however, was leaving my two babies for two whole nights. The longest I have ever been away from them is one night. So two nights in a row was a little rough on me. I don't like being away from my kids. At all. Some days running to the store is hard on me! I just miss them so much. If running to the store is hard on me, imagine how much of a wreck I was being away from them for two whole days!! In my defense, I think I did pretty good. I only called 7 times and cried twice. Not too bad. Right?

Of course, we returned home and they were perfectly fine. Kyler and I have been cuddling all evening and when Ella slows down long enough, she gets some cuddles in too!
