Our Week In Review

This past week has been a little crazy. Wednesday, my friend Tabitha came over and we started making a bag for Hydie's stroller so I don't have to carry the diaper bag everytime we use the stroller since it seems we are doing that alot more often now becuase the weather is getting nicer. Wednesday night, the guy that was fixing our computer brought it back! Can you say I was extremely excited!!! So the rest of Wednesday John spent uploading software and what not on the computer. Thursday I couldn't wait to start monogramming on my new machine!!! Tabitha came back over and we make some really cute things! I even had my first "customer" Thursday! My mom called and wanted me to monogram a beach towel!! Friday we did more sewing and monogramming (and of course playing)! When John was home for lunch he told me that the guy that fixed our computer was interested in me making him some polo shirts for the guys that work for him!!! I was head over heals about this!!! So all afternoon that's pretty much all I worked on because I wanted something "perfect". The guy hasn't seem the designs yet but I am so anxious for him to see and tell me what he thinks! Hydie is officially sitting up by herself more times than not and we are currently eating carrots and sweet potatoes! She like the potatoes way more than she likes the carrots but who wouldn't!!!

April Fools!

Hydie Standing On Her Own
Happy April Fools Day!!! Well this past week has been pretty good. Wednesday, I took Hydie to the doctor for her 4 month appointment and she is 12 lbs. 15 oz. and 24 1/2" long!!! She is getting so BIG!!!! While at the doctor she had to get updated on her shots which is never fun but she did very well and really didn't cry that much! Thursday, I went to the eye doctor for a contact check-up and to say the least, I can't see..PERIOD!!! The doctor is really nice and wants me to come back on the 15th of April to get a referral to a ophthalmologist to do more test to see what is causing my eyes to change prescriptions so much. Friday was John and I's 2 year anniversary! We had a fantastic day. John took the day off to spend the day with Hydie and I. Around 3:00 p.m. John made me leave so he could get things ready for his surprise! We came back around 6:00 p.m. with a wonderful dinner cooked, roses, gifts, and candles! It was so nice and I enjoyed every minute of that night!!! I gave him a XBox 360 and a new game for it (that's what he wanted)! Saturday, we got up and went to the Flea Market in one of the plane hangers here on base. I have never been to a "flea market" and let me tell you...there was a bunch of JUNK!!! We did get a desk to put our computer and my new embroidery/sewing machine on, a chair for the desk, a hip sling for Hydie, John got some weighters to go fishing. Saturday night was went over to Rachel and Tom's house and all of us girls went to the movies and the boys stayed at the house and played cards. It was fun to hang out with friends! Yesterday, my sewing/embroidery machine came in!!! I am so excited!! Hopefully soon I will be selling monogrammed things! Right now I am planning on creating a website and selling from my home here in Kodiak!
