There is something about walking into a fabric store that makes me a little giddy. Seeing yards upon yards of gorgeous cloth just waiting to make something incredible is really exciting.
Rags to Riches in Burlington is probably the best store I've ever been to as far as selection goes. They also have a great sale corner where regular weight fabrics are 5.00 per yard and remnants are 3.99 a yard. I bought some fabric.. of course... and can't wait to use it.

I've already recovered my shoe bench cushion in dark blue and still have enough to make a small curtain to cover up my portable washing machine where it sits underneath the cabinets.

Alsoooo got a gorgeous blue damask pattern and I think that might turn into a ring sling. I'm thinking of lining it with a cream silk (ish) fabric... something light weight and beautiful... so I can wear the baby anywhere fancy and look insanely great. :-)

Cant wait to upload photos of finished products.

I'm feeling angry a lot lately.

All for good reasons. I feel SO angry!

You know when you just want to scream at the top of your lungs? I want to s.c.r.e.a.m.

It's difficult to be angry at things that aren't going to change.

If you let it take over you, you'll just end up bitter and depressed but for the meantime, I'm just really angry.

I want to let it go but I haven't been able to yet.

This is a post about 500 different things that feel very unfair.

Life is unfair!

These are obvious statements but its how I'm feeling right now.. with a lot more emotion and swear words.

Some of you may know we are considering/planning a homebirth this time around. I wanted to share this incredible video.

I just watched this WITHOUT sound (computer is being odd) and I'm still bawling. So beautiful.

Whew its been a while

I'm enjoying the return of my internet and not having to read blogs on my phone. It's a luxury that I have taken for granted... since.. well.. always.

We've been busy!

Bryan just finished up a 3-4 week overdrive working craziness schedule. Getting home at 2 am....leaving again at 8 or 9. Noah and I missed him a lot and are so happy to have him back for the evenings. Although, classes just started back up for him and he'll be out Thursday evenings till December. Once he is done with this semester, he'll be finished with his web development certificate which is awesome!

I've been, pregnant. Feeling 100% better than before, able to wash dishes and get through the day without wanting to die. I'm in my 18th week now and we'll be having our 20 week ultrasound in about two weeks. We're both excited to find out the sex of the baby. Baby is kicking a lot now and its fun when it takes me by surprise when I'm not even being aware of being pregnant. I'm still in the stage where if someone mentions it, I almost have to wonder what they are talking about. Then I remember, oh yeah, my belly is showing.

Noah has been talking, talking , talking. We have conversations now and everyday he learns something new and impresses me more than before. He is an incredible little boy. I am enjoying him so much right now...I am dreading the big birthday in three months... :-( I will cry just thinking about it.

Looking forward to blogging more about birth and other fun things soon. Stay tuned!
