It lives!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes I am alive!
I was soooo excited to get back to the normal routine after the holidays. And note I said "was"! The girls were set to back to school Monday Jan.5th and I was ready to start all of my New Year's resolutions. Well wouldn't you know it the evening before my life would get back to normal I broke my foot!!! It had to be the right one at that which means no driving. I got to the E.R. at about 10:30 PM and got home around 1:30 AM. Not too shabby. I was given a diagnosis of a broken foot and crutches 101. Aaaaaaaahhhhh! That was me screaming. LOL. It's been a week and a couple of days now. The ortho doc gave me this stylish boot...not! I am able to put pressure on it now. I think I may have pushed myself a little too soon though. Me and crutches don't go well together. Now that I am off of the pain medications I am so ready to get back to making clippies. Other than that my holidays were great, busy, but great.

I don't like the way they look at me...

when I'm singing Christmas songs! So this station here is playing nothing but Christmas music and when I'm in the car with the kids I listen to it. My daughters and even the baby give me this look like I'm crazy when I sing along! Infact my oldest even told me that I was! The nerve! LOL! I don't care... I know it will be something that they look back on and laugh about when they are adults.

BTW..Until Christmas I will be having a Super Holiday Sale in my etsy shop!!! All orders will recieve a 25% discount & all orders over $15 will recieve a 25% discount PLUS free shipping! Don't miss it and be sure to tell your friends! I've been busy adding lots of super cute clippies. They make great stocking stuffers!

I ordered and recieved the most adorable little Mary's that I have ever seen. They are so adorable and I can't wait until Christmas for my girls to see them. I know that these dolls will be something that we hang onto forever. I'm patting myself on the back for such an awesome buy! Customer service was excellent and shipping was lightning fast! Two thumbs up!! Check 'em out at http://www.saintlysilver.etsy.com./

It's Turkey Time!

Wow! This year has flown by! I can't believe it's already Thanksgiving. Christmas is just around the corner. This holiday season I find myself thankful for everything that I have in my life. More than any other year. I'm not sure if it's because I've matured over the years and I am learning the things that are most important in life aren't really things at all. I thank God everyday for what he has given to us. Unfortunatly sometimes we really find ourselves counting our blessings when something bad happens. A dear friend of mine, who is 24, was in a car accident today and it has really hit me in the gut. She hit a cement wall on the side of the highway and an eighteen wheeler hit her. They had to perform reconstructive surgery which included placing a metal plate behind her eye. She may lose her eye. This saddens me to no end. I feel for her family and know that her recovery will be a tough one. But I have faith that she will recover from this.

My oldest turned 8 this past weekend!! Still can't believe it!

I'm not sure?

My daughter's birthday is coming up this Saturday. She will be 8 years old. A friend that I've had for 16 years now bought her a book. American Girl "The Care & Keeping of You." This book is a head to toe guide with answers to all of their questions from hair care to haelthy eating, bad breath to bras, periods to pimples, and everything between. This seems like good advice but it also seems very detailed. It shows everything from how to pick out a bra which is great but also has very graphic pictures on how to insert a tampon. I'm just not sure if she is at an appropriate age for a book like this. I would love some advice from other mothers out there. Let me know what you think.

I think I'm in love!

With this purse!! It's being sold by morelle on etsy, it's called Lilac Truffle. Absolutely beautiful! I think that I will have to leave http://www.morelle.etsy.com/ up on the screen so that my husband can see what I want for Christmas. LOL.

This morning I woke up fed the kids and checked my email. There was an email from a fellow etsy member. She said that my items in my shop were so cute and she's was wondering why I didn't have more sales. She also made some suggestions on what I could do to increase sales. I thought that was very kind of her seeing that she sells similar items. It's so nice to see that there are still good people out there!

On another note I added some super cute Christmas clippies to my etsy site.

Take a look:

So this is blogging...

Hello there.
So I've decided to start blogging. Being a mother of three crazy kids I thought this may help keep me sain (even if it's only temporary). Well where do I start? I am 28 years olf I have 3 kids ages 7, 6, & 1. I've been married for 8 years now, he says it still feels like the first day....pfft what does he want? Just kidding. Suprisingly the spark is still there. When we were first married I assumed that eventually it went away and you just learned to live together. I was wrong!

My babies: Allie the Witch, Marcus the Pumpkin, & Jasmine the Ghost!

OMG, as I am typing this blog my one year old is trying to turn the computer off!! Did I pick a good title for my blogspot or what?

Ok I vented back to blogging...

I am a stay at home mom for now, trying to decide on whether I should go back to work. I quit my job in May as a supervisor in an ophthalmology clinic. the salary just didn't seem worth all of the hassle (daycare prices, after school care prices, long hours on salary, etc.) But now it just seems to be getting tougher financially. I've started making clippies and selling them on etsy. You can stop by my shop and tell me what you think http://www.sweetasjamboutique.etsy.com/ :). Okay so I think I'm getting the hang of this. I'll be back tomorrow!
