So much to do, so little time...

I read that quote this week, the good is often enemy of the best. It's always a good reminder. It's the afternoon on the day before I am leaving for an out of town trip, and I can't figure out what the heck to be doing. I tried to lay down to rest, but of course couldn't, so I thought I'd get some computer work done real quick. We have Rally this weekend which means lots of fun training, NEW JEWELRY LINE!!!, amazing meals that I don't have to cook, a fancy hotel, and no diapers.

Last night I tried on clothes and let me tell you, my maternity clothes have me feeling very self conscious. I get to walk across stage and be recognized for a promotion I achieved and all I could think about as I looked in the mirror last night was how much I'm going to look like a big bolt of fabric from JoAnne's walking across that stage. It should be fun. Maternity shirts either make me look like I have on a half dress up top, or to go the fitted route makes me look like hooker barbie. Needless to say I go the tent dress route, hence, walking around looking like a bolt of fabric. These are special times! And special times call for more jewelry!

It looks like my afternoon agenda is going to be straighten the house, do some more laundry, pack a little and we have a play date tonight with my friends and the kids friends.

Every Spring I get the hankering for some change. This year it happened in January. I'm on my second week of a curly hair experiment and I'm loving it. I bought a book called the Curly Hair Guidebook and it's so fun. I made some Lavender Water to mist on my hair, it is supposed to have cleansing properties and rejuvenate your curls toward the end of the day, good stuff. When I was making it, Shane was like what the heck are you brewing up in the kitchen. The Lavender Essential Oil was making it smell very earthy :).

My other new experiment I'll be starting next week is the Coupon Game ( . Some girls at Bible Study are loving it and are saving lots of money. I'm leery of coupons and do not use them because I feel like they get you to buy stuff you ordinarily would not buy. But, for 4 weeks you can try the website for only $1. So, I'm going to give it a whirl. The nice thing is when you register it tells you the rock bottom prices at the stores you sign up for (Kroger, Walgreen's, Wal-Mart, etc) and when to make your purchases.

I hope ya'll have a great weekend and rest of the week! We went to the doc yesterday and all is looking good so that was exciting.

I went to the doc yesterday, too. Everything looked good. Still no name decision. The doc almost messed it up yesterday because she said Avery was the top girls name last year so I had to research and it was actually Ava, so that was a relief. We still really like Piper and the boys do, too:)
I was just reading Cam your blog about you looking like a bolt of fabric. He was cracking up!!:)

I am so glad that the doctor appointment went well! I have been wondering when that appointment was.

And this comment belongs on the previous entry, but since it wasn't about complimenting yourself I wanted to tell what I am thankful for about you. You always have a hug smile for me and a hug. Even though you and Shane are busy and probably tired, y'all always hang out with me after babysitting and want to know what is going on in my life. I appreciate your whole family so much and I miss y'all like CRAZY! You are such a blessing in my life!
