Well, its that time again. I am preparing for another consignment sale!!!! My bedroom looks like it should be on that show "Hoarders"!! What a mess!!! Sorting, hanging, pinning, tagging, etc. I usually do really well so its worth the mess and all the work. So this is what I will be doing for the next two weeks!!!
Abby has testing at school all week so this is a NO HOMEWORK week!! So last night instead of doing math and spelling we were able to do something fun....we made Chocolate Chip Cookies!!! Abby did everything except turn the oven on, put the cookies in the oven, and take them out of the oven. She cracked the egg, stirred the mix, scooped them out, etc. She did a FINE job and they were VERY tasty!!!!!!
I needed a new wreath for my front door so I started shopping for one. Well, I soon realized to get the one I wanted I was going to have to fork out almost $100!!!! My mother in law is very crafty so she told me she would bring some stuff over and help me make one. So, I went and picked out my flowers. She brought the grapevine wreath and the wire. She showed me how to wire the flowers to the wreath and said "Now make it" LOL. So I sat on the back patio and made my very first wreath!!!!!
It was frustrating at times and could get pretty intense trying to get that wire through the grapevine but all in all I was very pleased with what I ended up with when I was finished!!!!
I think I might have a new hobby because it was very fun to do, I think I will make wreath #2 next week....Stay tuned.....

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! We put on our green and went down to the Irish Times Pub. We go there every year for Patty's Day to have lunch. School is on Spring Break so both the kids got to go with us this year. We had a good time, ate outside, and it was a very nice lunch!!!!
