A little of this and that

I'm avoiding doing my work today, so I thought I'd post for a minute. I was recently looking at some quilting blogs and I really need to get some pics up. The problem is I work in the basement so I have no phone service when I actually think about posting. So I need to send my pics to my email and that way I can open it at work and then save it on my blog.

So right now I'm working on finishing up a quilt for Emme. She was asking when I was going to make her one and I was in the process of putting a pink one together with no one in mind. So I'm glad she spoke up. It was the Ragged Square Quilt from Crazy Mom Quilts blog. It was so fast and so easy that I'll probably have to do a few more. I already basted but I had one more idea for the back this morning so I might have to unpin and re-pin the entire thing. Good thing that it's not that big.

I have so many ideas in my head of things I want to get done. I wish I could take some time off work and work on them. It's hard when you have a very active toddler running around to get anything done.

Onto something else. The weight loss is at a standstill right now. I've been hovering around 225 for a few weeks. I think we I start training for the 5K it will begin to speed up. I'm excited and nervous to train. My body says I can do it, but it's my mind that plays evil tricks on me. I need to find some good running music. Any suggestions would be great!

Alison and I headed to the beach yesterday to chill. It was so nice to be kid and husband free and just to lay out and do nothing. I caught up on some magazines, ate some junk (not good) and got a little burned on my legs. The water was freezing so I didn't venture out past my ankles, but at least I touched the water. I wish I could run/walk there every day. It would be total motivation to keep running because of the beautiful scene.

Well that's my life in a nutshell. I'm dying to get some quilting done. Hopefully I'll have a little time this weekend to work on it. Oh I didn't even mention my anniversary and b-day. Jared and I went to dinner at Kabuki for some sushi. He surprised me (totally!) with a strand of real pearls and said he had been saving to buy them for me. I was shocked and very happy! They are beautiful, something I look forward to wearing forever. I got him passes to play paintball with Erik which he was happy about. Then for my b-day I cleaned in the morning, the Ganiere's came over for home teaching and picking fruit, went to lunch at Subway, Jared took the kids shopping while I was home alone to pin my quilt and take a nap, then we headed to the Burr's for a BBQ. It was great. I just relaxed, at my baked beans and had ice cream cake. Barb got me a gift card to Joann's, Jared got me one too and a gift card to Bath and Body Works. Alison also got me a g.c. to Walmart and I ended up using to buy my little Angry Birds collection for my desk at work. I need to take a pic of those too and post. Boy I am totally behind with the pics! Shame on me!!!

I will start training for the 5K on the 26th--do you want to do our first "run" together?

I love that Jared saved up for those pearls. So sweet!!! :')
