The Feeling of Accomplishment! was beautiful and full of stuff to do. I feel very good. You know those days when you get alot done on your to-do list and sit down at the end of the day, you know that feeling of just pure "whew, I'm whipped", but a good whipped. A feeling of accomplishment. My husband and I got in a bit ago of cleaning out the garage and raking all the leaves and doing a bunch of outside spring cleaning. It was such a relief to get it done. It is so refreshing to look at the yard and have it look so "springy" and fresh! I love it. A very productive day, if I do say so myself! Our little guy, Connor, was also helpful in digging out the leaves behind the bushes. It didn't last too long, as the trampoline was calling his name too loud, but it helped! We have a bit more to do tomorrow, but we did good today! I am happy! :)

Spring Has Sprung....I hope!

Wow! It is gorgeous outside. I just ran to the post office and it is beautiful! I hope it sticks around. I was begining to think that Michigan skipped over spring this year! Well, I am extremely happy to say that my physics class is done today and over with! It was my last class and now all I have is clinicals left to do! Not looking forward to it, but in a way I am . I know it is going to be pretty intense, but I know it needs to be done. (obviously). Things are going good- dedeetsyshop (my etsy shop) is starting to pick up! I have had a pretty good month- it is only my fourth month, but it is getting busier as I am learning the good times to list, the items people are interested in, and different ways to advertise. I had one of my little bird pillows just put on a blog it is the greatest little blog all about babies and baby decor. I just love it and was so surprised to see some of my pillows on there! Thanks so much to her!! Check it out- it has some adorable nursery pictures on there! So now that my classes are done for the semester I am going to start working on some new pillow ideas and perhaps thinking about doing some tables at a farmers market this summer. The one in my area is in a little resort town that gets ALOT of people in the summer and I might try it once and see how it goes. Has anyone had luck at places like that? Well I am off to ship out some Mini Bags of HOME! Will write soon!

Etsy Love

I haven't written in awhile. Oops. I have sooo much I want to write about, but don't want to babble on and on. I have been crazy busy, finishing up my semester (only have till friday- yippee!!), Easter was here (and gone) and spring break also. I had so many plans for spring break; get stuff organized, yard work, make a bunch of new pillow designs..ect. But nothing seemed to get done and the time went too fast! Ugh...why does time fly like that!? We did have a nice Easter- visited with family and friends. That is always nice. :) I am a little anxious to finish my phsyics class, it is my last before my clinicals, which I am grateful for,but I am nervous to see how long the waitlist is. I am afraid it is going to be like 3 years! I will soon find out I guess. I am hoping that whenever it is, we are moved closer by then so I won't have an hour drive to school everyday! My husband drives there everyday for work, and it would really stink if we are both commuting and hour each day there, seperatly! I did find a house I LOVE, that would only be like a 10-15 minute drive for both his work and my school! We would have to sell our house first though, and our house we are flipping. I don't think we could handle four mortgages! (The fourth one we at least have a renter in!) That is ANOTHER summer project, finishing up our flip! Last summer it was the house we have rented out right now, and this summer it is the house we plan on selling. It is going to be a cute little house- brand new inside and out! The trim is going up as I type this and cupboards are ordered and should be in by the end of the month. Then it is my turn to paint! I don't really mind painting....Well I guess I am babbling on and on, sorry about that...I will def. write more often, I have alot I want to talk about! This is my own little venting station! Take Care!
