I haven't been on here in a LONG time.

When I get a chance to use the computer, it's usually:
at the end of the night when I can't think straight
in the middle of the day when I have about 15 minutes total.

Not really ideal blogging time.

Lately, Ben has been taking Delilah more and I've been getting a bit more time to myself.  He's been rocking her to sleep for her naps and I've been getting to have a bit more of a life!  I love being with my baby, but I was also losing myself a bit.  I wasn't getting to do anything that was just for me.
But now, I've gotten to go out to lunch with some friends, I've gone to a couple movies, and I've been able to craft while I'm home.
Yes, I still have her the majority of the time, but I'm also getting some ME time.  It's making me a much happier and less stressed person.

Speaking of crafts, I've had SO MANY orders of stuff lately.

These letters were for a little girl.  Her dad is a marine and my friend ordered these as a gift.  The marine is meeting his daughter for the first time soon!

For a customer's guest room.

Instead of a birth announcement, a wedding announcement!

For a customer's living room decor!

I've also been doing some crafts for our house AND for some friends:

These are hair bow holders.  I made them for some of my friends with daughters.

These three are hanging in my hallway
I made this one for my daughter today!  Go Chiefs!

I made this for my daughter's room-because she'll love Harry Potter too.

This was for my friend AshBoll-just because she's awesome.

I also set up my Etsy shop! (That's a link, so click it!)

Other stuff:

*Ben is going to Korea next year, so I'll be staying with my parents for a year with Delilah while he's gone.  I'm so thankful that I get to go back while he's away.  My mom and I have lots of plans, and she can't wait to get me and Delilah back!
*We will HOPEFULLY be stationed at a new base after he goes to Korea.  (I'd be shocked if we didn't)
*I've been hanging out with some really awesome people lately and just ignoring the ones who consistently lie about people.  I don't want to even be associated with any of that, so I just decided to not talk to them unless I absolutely had to.  It's made my life a lot easier!  (I'm sure I get talked about-because I still hear about it-but at least now I don't have to pretend like I like them!)

Some of the actual REAL people I've been lucky enough to befriend!

*I've been organizing the house...getting rid of JUNK that we don't need.  I've got 2 big boxes for the local mission in town that helps the needy.  When we move, we're donating our living room furniture as well.  We've been blessed, and we want to give back.
*If you haven't seen the new Batman, I don't know what you're doing with your life.
*I participated in a photo shoot for the local breastfeeding group.  Here are some pictures from it!

My mom got me that bracelet!
