I failed....

So, it looks like I only got to Day 6... oops. Oh well. I found Pinterest. (and all the craft/ kitchen inspiration that comes along with it). That's my excuse. Currently, I am working on a menu board, homemade whiteboard, "wire" bulletin board, new key holders and about a million other things. It's so fun! Oh, and here's a recent-ish picture of the baby.

Day 6

A Hobby You Have:

I love to sew! It feels so good to turn fabric into something useful and pretty. I like to do pretty much anything crafty - and getting ready for a baby girl is a great excuse to sew and scrapbook and craft. I also love to read and write and cook.

Day 3

A Habit that you Wish you Didn't Have:

I drive when I'm not driving. I shoulder check and use the mirrors and freak out occasionally when my driver (Zach...) doesn't look like he's watching the road, isn't slowing down when he needs to, goes the wrong way etc...

Now, the real reason I wish I didn't have this habit isn't so Zach feels better/ is happier... but it's because I (he) stress (stresses) myself (me) out. I decided yesterday that our car rides are much more pleasant if I just don't watch or pay attention. That way he can do what ever he wants and as long as we don't get in an accident, I won't notice.
