Projects!!

I got this from my friend Maggie's blog. She is publicly de-cluttering and organizing her house, and I got some inspiration! I didn't think shining your sink would make a big difference.
Before


(There I have the bleach water in the right side)
After

Sometimes I think I should be in Marketing. The "after" looks so much better without all the soap and scrubbers, but to tell you the truth, i just put them a few feet to the left out of the picture, then put them right back. Another reason, I dont think that food advertising should EVER show people actually EATING the food.
No one wants to see that.

So, Sara Lee, you need to fire your marketing director, and call me.
But, you will get rejected, because I am a full time mom. I will perhaps freelance for you, I charge $15,000/hr for a consultation.

I finally got around to making Kai's name blocks.



It would have only took me an hour but Kaius decided he didnt want to be independent for even 2 seconds so it took me a whole day just working on it a little here and a little there. I'm pretty stoked with how they turned out. Its really easy for these to look girly with too funky of a font, embellishment, or choice of paper pattern. Maybe I should open an etsy shop? I haven't looked to see if that market is oversaturated...
ok I just checked and I didnt really see any like mine. Something to think about...

And Lastly, I dont know if any other moms out there have experienced the feeling of baby kicks after having the baby, but I feel "kicks" all the time. Its not gas, I know that, but I think its muscle spasms. I had Josh get me a pregnancy test at the dollar store, and I just took it, and..................its negative.
*phew*

Lol, you got a pregnancy test @ the dollar store? Are you sure that's legit? And that's kinda weird that people still feel kicks - I can't wait to feel my baby kick. Being pregnant is such a WEIRD (albeit beautiful and exciting) experience :)
