This is my journey towards doing more of what I dream of...fabric projects, reading, cooking, gardening, wine-ing, and just plain having fun!! Wish me Luck!!

Have you ever had a weekend start on a high note and keep floating along for the whole next day? I'm hoping it will float right through today and go even higher!! Of course, there is a little bit of a low note (haven't heard from my really good friend in awhile and I think I have a cold coming on!)....but every song needs it's range of notes to make it interesting...a little sweet and salty right!?!?
I have to say that playing a game with my kids can be so much fun but can also be challenging if you don't pick the right game! We had family night on Friday, starting off with Smoothies and America's Funniest Videos (normally it's "Smoothie and a Movie" but it had to be shortened for our game time..:) We decided on Charoodles for our game...what a fun game! The boys just love acting out the different topics, well we all do! It can have us rolling on the ground...so fun! We do skip the scoring though, just try to each beat the clock...makes it a little more relaxing!!
Saturday, I was up early and had a chance to continue work on my quilt project. I'm almost done with the top, I'm so excited to be moving along with it!! It is definitely not perfect but I think perfect can be a little sterile. I'm hoping to finish up the top this morning and start on the back. Of course we have plans this afternoon so I won't have as much time to get stuff done...better start soon!
Playing with the border!
A couple of my letters!
We also had a chance to help support our community yesterday but attending the Souper Bowl! This event is put on by Habitat for Humanity with the proceeds going to help their building projects for new homes for those in need. It is such a wonderful event, you get to choose a handcrafted ceramic bowl from an overflowing table of artsy vessels and then eat soup, salad, bread and homemade goodies. We also got to
listen to the music of the UW Marching Band and Jazz West. Bucky Badger even showed up to join in the fun! The boys had a great time and we did too! Looking forward to making this a yearly tradition...we'll just need to make space for all the awesome bowls!!
Today, of course is the real Super Bowl...we are just a little excited here at our house....Go Pack Go! We are off to my folks house for a big Super Bowl party this afternoon...I just really love going to a party and eating snacks and yelling at the TV...I get a little worked up though with our team playing so I may have to hide in the basement at the tense times and watch the Puppy Bowl! I am making Jalapeno Poppers wrapped in bacon and Nestle Toll House Chocolate and Cookie Crumb Bars (YUM)--adding M & M's for color!
I'll try to post the recipes and pictures if they turn out!!! Sorry, gotta say it again -- GO PACK GO!!!
Hope you all have a floating kind of day and week!!
