Mom, You'd Be So Proud

All these years that I've been learning to quilt, I've ALWAYS had to have my mom help me with my binding. And in many cases, help actually means she did it. I've even mailed her fabric, she's made the binding and then given it back. It's been wonderful, for it's the worst part of quilt making for me. Getting down the folding and cutting on the bias was kind of hard!  Well, I finally did it. It may have been the time crunch and utter desperation to get this quilt finished (pictures to follow), but I finally bit the bullet and did it. Yay!

Okay, it only took Google, three texts, and two calls to my mom.  Love you, Mom!

You're My Favorite

Yes, I tell all my nephews and nieces they are my favorite. Because they are! :)

Just a quick note to say, I love this kid.  EVERY time I am on Skype with him, he asks  if he can come to my house. Every time.  He has even said, "Can you come get me and bring me to your house?"

Soon, buddy. Soon!

And Then It Hit Me

Just as our year is ending, I'm realizing how much I love my little class.  I feel like one of their parents because I know some of their strengths, weaknesses, favorites, dislikes, and see some of their truest moments. Today was a good day. A great day. Despite all the crazy antics of third grade, they are wonderful little spirits.

Life is Hard

I can do hard things!

I've now made chocolate chip scones several times.  I love the recipe found here. I've now started experimenting with it and adding other options.  Today I made cinnamon raisin scones, and they were delicious! Now I can stop getting one at Carl's Jr. in the mornings. I know, I know. But they are so good, and those biscuits totally remind me of summers with my Grandma Rene where we'd go to Hardee's in the mornings and get a cinnamon raisin biscuit. Carl's Jr. and Hardee's biscuits are one in the same. It's true. Read the package. Anyway, now I can make my own. They're cheap, easy, and a great breakfast to grab and go!

Keeping Me Up

I've been reading The Hunger Games series. Bah. I hate it but I can't put it down. I've read two books in three days. It's seriously bad for my sleep.  I still can't decide if I like it or hate it.

On another note, did you know my sign is Sagittarius? A half-beast, half-man.  Sometimes I feel like that. I little beasty but still human.  I guess it's appropriate that it's my sign.

I no longer have a car payment. And I now have way cheaper car insurance. Sweet.

And now, in other news, my car has recently become a place for birds to sit and poop. I almost can't contain my joy. 

And my headlight went out. Again. For the 52nd time. It's super annoying. 

I'll enjoy having no car payment while it lasts!
