WWW: I have found my calling.

See those cute pictures? They are going to go in my guest bedroom when it’s done. AND I MADE THEM. Serious. On the greatest, most glorious new machine known to man. A Cricut.

Our library got a Cricut through inter-library loan (I didn’t know this was possible, but it is) and my friend and I decided to go try it out. We scrapbook, we make cards, we like crafty things. It was addictive really cool. I wish they could have had it for a really long time, but alas, we had to part. But not before I cut out about everything I could think of.

So what do I want on this Wednesday. A Cricut, of course. Someday!


WWW: Electrify Me!

I want/need someone to re-wire my house! Actually, I think my husband is going to do it with the help of an expert friend. Our thisoldhouse has the knob and tube wiring (similar to the above pic) in the upstairs half. Lucky for us, the people before is redid the bottom half with the kitchen and the bathrooms. This should make it much easier. But I think within the next month or so Mr. M is going to take on the electrical system. We’re hoping, all said and done, that we can get by with this costing less then $400. And then we can start the remodel of the upstairs bedrooms.

I’ll let you know who wins!


WWW: Peace

Today I just want some peace in my heart. It has been a rough week, school has been crazy and I just want to be able to breathe, stop, take in these moments and enjoy my life. Hope you all can do that as well!

Baby, Someday, WWW

Whaddya Want Wednesday: Baby talk

Uh-oh. It’s that post, kids. The Baby Fever, BabyRabies post. I have them. I have HAD them for awhile. And it’s almost time.

See that? That little white pill is the LAST birth control pill I hope to take for a long time. We’re not going to start trying right away, the plan is to wait until this summer. The doc suggested go off earlier and using a barrier method so that my cycle can regulate itself. I have been on the pill for 10 years. This notion of not taking it blows my mind.

But I want a baby. I know people say you are never ready, and I don’t feel 100% ready, but darn, I feel close. I walk around now doing my daily tasks, and I think, could I do this with an infant? And the answer is YES. There will be tons more on this subject later, as we get closer. Let’s just pray all of the plumbing works.


Whaddya Want Wednesday?

I have decided to start a new feature that I will do weekly (on Wednesdays, obviously) to keep my blogging more often, and to talk about fun things. So, I decided to talk about things that I want. This could be material, it could be a dream, a goal, etc. If you would like to participate, please, feel free to loop yourself in!

Today it is a material something. Because I realized that it has been really cold this week, and really snowy, and I now live on a farm. And I want need some good snow boots.

So I visited my good friend, www.llbean.com and found a few options. Some were furry, which I love, but is not really practical for doing chores. These were the winners:

The Snowbell. Am I ordering it? Not yet. If I could, I would. At $99, that probably won’t happen right away! I’m hoping they’ll have a killer end of season sale soon.

So, what are you wanting this Wednesday eve?
