What was I thinking ...

What was I thinking a few weeks ago when we took the day trip down to Morehead State University in Kentucky to broaden Addie's exposure to the college choice world? What was I thinking?????

Addie went down to Morehead State University in Kentucky again this weekend with her best girfriend. They got up at 5 AM this morning, got ready and off they went by 6am. She arrived safely, OUT OF STATE, at the exact time Gerdy said she would .. 9:30 am .... and they LOVED it. LOVED. Not, it's okay Mom. It's alright. LOVE IT ....

So I ask you, what was I thinking? I have been crying like a baby all night now. She's home safe and sound and at a sleep over with the other three girls that went down and don't love it. But, she and Erika are ready to go now ..... SHE HAS 6 MORE MONTHS OF HIGH SCHOOL.

Man, I am thinking I need more time for this transition. Pray for me. Really.

Quilters Delight

Good Morning. Okay, okay it's barely morning in my foggy head. I have been zippyin and strippin since I got home from my Baltimore trip. Have you seen the lovely quilts and cutest ever quilting book my cousin designs, makes, whatever you call it! "Zippy Strippy Quilts"

Welllllll, last year I became an addict. I haven't started any 12 step program because I LOVE making them, I love even more the excitement on my family and friends faces when they open one and it's so fluffy and cozy. And I have to admit, flannel is easy, but corduroy is all about the warmth and fall and winter and yummyness. And who would have thought quality matters -- IT DOES LADIES!

I have 7 quilts completed and 5 more to finish. When you have a bolt of innies, it will go to waste if you don't sew it all up, which is what I am doing, sewing it all up. LOL It's like that last dollar in your pocket ....... it will get funky in there if it is all alone and not out with other month and getting yor a Hershey Chocolate Bar with Almonds.

Anyway, I'll post the stack of quilts later, because right now I am sitting under a ZSQ clipping and I don't want to get up .... you'll seeee, try it, join me in my addiction ........ giggling

Home again home again, jiggity jig

Wow, what a worldwind weekend.

I am just exhausted. I knew when my other best friend didn't ask me to be "in" her wedding, that I would be "working" the wedding instead. Which I love to do, honestly. I took Michelle for her mani/pedi, then to get her hair down and calm her nerves and tell the "professional" hair dresser where she needed to hide bobbie pins and protected her from her "mean" sister. I made all the brides maids bouquets, and helped with decorating the mansion and then managed to go upstairs and help her with her dress and calming her down again ..... and I took a ton of pictures. I like being useful.

The best part of being busy this weekend was, well it was my Dad's birthday. And I missed him, but I was way too busy to miss him too much. It was nice to be busy and needed.

It was a beautiful wedding and she was a beautiful bride.
