I didn't think it was possible...until my 20 month old looks up and points to the 9 on my shorts and says "nine". WHAT? Did you just say "nine"? No...surely that was a coincidence. So then I was explaining this to David later (still wearing the shorts) and Zane looks ups again, points to it and says "nine". OMG! He is seriously saying it! Then he pointed to the 8 and said "B". I mean it did look like a "B". Is this possible?
*thanks for the pic Kate*
He is just amazing us lately. His vocabulary has gotten so large and he is even making small sentences. Just the other day he said "I go bath mama". How cute is that?! This is starting to get interesting.

I originaly wanted to use this book to record random thoughts & facts about me but I sort of went in another direction. I'm thinking I will now make two books and switch the cover/titles. You can see more of my book and Kate's book as well as Stephanie Howell's version of it too by signing up for Kate's class.
Well I'm not feeling so hot tonight so that's all I got. *sigh* I see a big cup of hot tea in my very near future.

So yeah, my hubby requested a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. So naturally, that is exactly what I made for him. It was fairly yummy. Can't wait to eat some leftovers again tonight after supper.
Then today I had the pleasure of meeting the fabulous Kate O'Brian for lunch.
Despite a minor set back (Zane falling off the bed onto his head)...we made it to PJ Changs where we had a yummy meal complete with pot stickers & lettuce wraps. mMMMM! Then we topped that off with some Starbucks. So the reason we were meeting (besides just because we wanted to meet IRL) was for me to pick up my kit for her class over at Create My Keepsake. She asked me to be one of her "celebrity guest designers". I giggle every time I see her refer to me as a "celebrity guest"! You have got to go check it out! The class starts tomorrow.
Ok, since I was so excited to meet Kate and I admire her work, I wanted to make her a little gift. Here is what I came up with. It is made using the cover from an old cigar box as the "canvas" and has lots of vintage trim. Now I'm totally jealous and think I'm gonna make one for me too!

The "living tree". Every afternoon, the trees come alive at the hotel. Well, at least this one does. She was so beautiful!

Got to help out with the Hambly make and take again this year. Here we all are rockin' our fabulous shirts hand screen printed by Allison herself. Me, Allison, Stacey & Kerry Lynn.
Playing at the TN welcome center.
And this beauty is a shot from our session with the talented Ulmers! I can't wait to see more...seriously, I'm stalking her blog! LOL!
Ok, well I'll be back with more details soon!

Buttons Martha will be giving to fellow sisters next week.
Sweet little books that Wilna lovingly made for her sisters at the event.
This is the Hambly make & take Allison created for us to do at the Hambly booth Saturday night. I love that she used a picture of us from last year on her sample! So cute!
And last but CERTAINLY not least, here is my little man. We went to a crawfish boil at my girl Beth's house yesterday...this is where Zane was most of the afternoon. The boy loves a good John Deer. And yes that is a cat behind him on the seat. He was cool with it. *sigh* Only a few more days left till we head to Scrap Etc. in Nashville. Wwwwwwhehehhhheeee!

Yeah, I went there. I bought stuff. I'm pleased.
And this is why I love these clothes...the details. Look at the sweet little tags inside these beauties.
How could you not want to drape your body in these fashions?
Ok, now this is just hilarious. Zane just refuses to stop and nap. He fights sleep like no child I have ever seen. It's like he thinks the world throws a huge party when he is unconscious. So I caught him catching some z's. He kept nodding and every time he would nod he would jerk his hand and his truck would roll. It was quite funny. I shot a few seconds of video too but that takes way to long to upload...so you get pics.
