Exercise and Losing My Mojo

No I haven't lost my exercise mojo, that's still going super strong, though I've been sick this week so I haven't exercised as much as I would have liked, but I'm starting to feel better so we'll get back on track soon. The mojo I've lost has been my crafty mojo, I just feel like between doing homework with Chris, working out and making dinner in the evenings I haven't had much time to craft. I think I need to revert to having my sewing machine set up all the time so that I can take those few min I have and sew. I've got my next dress all cut out and ready to be sewn together I just can't seem to find the chutzpa to do it. I'd like to show a new finished dress on here though, and since it's starting to get warmer I'd like to have something fun and new to wear. I'm hoping to get a little organizing of my Harry Potter closet done this weekend as well as work on an art project with Chris, but we may go hiking so we'll see what happens.

Chris' Room

So item number 28 on my 29 for 29 was to redecorate Chris’ room with him and we’ve done it!  We finally got the sister-in-law and her boyfriend out of the house and Chris got his room back, so off we went to Ikea.  We let Chris walk around the entire bed department and choose the bed he wanted and he decided on a twin size unfinished wood bed with an unfinished side table to match.  So we took down the old bed and cleaned the room out, got rid of all the old toys he doesn’t play with any more, some we gave to our friends, Matt and Jess, for their son Nolan and the rest we donated.  Then we stained the bed with a blue stain and the side table with a green stain from Minwax and it ended up looking really cool.  We also put up all his jerseys from football and soccer and a couple shelves for his trophies.  We found the coolest skateboard hanger from Target so we put that up and hung his skateboard and Chris picked out some Shaun White stickers from Target and put those up all over his room.  Oh, he also got a hamster for getting straight A’s last semester, so Max the hamster got a really cool cage and a place of prominence by the sink.  I think that’s it, but his room looks much older now and really show’s how much he’s growing up.  And I know, a blog post is nothing without pics, so here's the room!

Charlee's Tutus

So some of our very dear friends are getting ready to have their second baby and it’s a girl this time, right now they just have the cutest little boy ever.  But because this was a girl it meant that I got to make something uber cute and pink. So I went off to Target to get some little girly essentials like a pink kitty cat hooded towel and while I was there I found these super cute pink leggings with ruffles on the bottom.  Well I also decided that Charlee (that’s the baby’s name) needed a tutu, but knowing how much of a pain it can be to put multiple layers on a baby I decided to attach the tutus to the pants and my Mom came up with the bows on the butts.  I think they are too cute!
