I am sick. I want all my stuff that I am waiting for to get here now! I have no patience today. Maybe anxious is the right word. I'm not sure.

This story broke my heart last night. I was watching the live coverage and when Adam gave his interview I was in tears. Somebody needed to give that guy a hug and tell him it's okay and that he can do it!

New Stuff!

I am feeling a little blah today. It must be the gloomy weather. So, I thought I would show off some of the new stuff in my house:

The New Sewing Machine... oohhhhhhhh.... so nice...

The New Bed and Side Tables... oohhhhhh... nice!

One thing I love about the side tables is that db can store his "piles" in the 3 drawers. But when I looked at the picture... uh oh... a pile on the floor. Can you see it? I guess no matter how hard I try, I may not win this battle!

I do want a new duvet cover. The one on the bed is made by my sister about 8 years ago and it is starting to get holes in it :( The duvet cover that I really really love is this one from anthropologie
I want it soooooo bad!

Amy Butler... Baby Book

I bought Amy Butler's new book, Little Stitches by Little Ones after reading this post! I can't wait to get the book, so I can start sewing more stuff! Luckily lots of my friends are having babies!

I bought the book here... Hope it comes soon!

New Project

Feff... my friends are baby machines! I can't keep up with the baby towels that I was making, so I had to find something much less time consuming, but just as nice. So, I created a bib pattern! Then I decided to make burp pads (throw over your shoulder so you keep your clothes all pretty).

What do you think?

Oh ya! These were sewn by my NEW sewing machine! I got tired of my old machine, so I went and splurged on a new one. It is awesome! No more missed stitches! Is it wonderful?

Why didn't I think of this?

Seriously, why didn't I think of this? I tote around cupcakes for db's birthday every year... and they always get smooshed! If anybody is looking for a good b-day present for me, this is it! (It can be bought from amazon or ebay).

Let the Games Begin!

I am an Olympic freak. I have admitted it. Early this morning were the opening ceremonies for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. I watched all 5 hours of it and loved it! Luckily we have a Personal Video Recorder now, so I can it up to tape all the live Olympic coverage and watch it the next day. Watching the "recaps" isn't the same.

One of the highlights for me was the countdown with the fou drummers. To start the ceremony, 2008 drummers welcomed the world. The drums would light up when they were banged and the 2008 drummers were synchronized to do the countdown. It was spectacular.

Did you know? If an athlete from Ireland wins a gold medal, the cost of a pint of beer goes down 4 pence? Crazy!

Did you know? In the 2004 Olympics, South and North Korea walked into the stadium together for the first time. Unfortunately this year they were unable to come to an agreement and walked in separately.

Tonight one of my old friends from Altadore Gymnastic Club, Kyle Shewfelt, will begin his quest for another Olympic medal in gymnastics. Some of you may know that Kyle broke both his legs earlier this year and has worked extremely hard to get to the Olympics. Will be thinking of you tonight Kyle and good luck!
