Five Question Friday - 2/18/2011

1. Have you worn the same outfit more than one day in a row?  Definitely... if clean, and only worn for a couple hours.  I.E. I wore something to church, and then wear it to work the next day.  This definitely doesn't happen now, LOL!  Have two kiddos under two means that I am 'decorated' within five minutes of putting any outfit on.  I specialize in wearing machine wash and dry clothes now.

2. If you had to choose any LARGE city to live in, which would it be?  London.  I hate big cities so I might as well be living somewhere completely different, right?  London/England is somewhere I have always wanted to explore.  I did a day trip into London when we had an 8-hour layover, and it was a lot of fun but left me wanting to spend more time there.

3. Fly or drive with the kids on vacation?  Either.  I think road trips are a necessary part of growing up.  And even though they seem to last forever... they do eventually end.  Flying is almost hard since you have to be able to carry everything you need on the plane, and until the kiddos are old enough to help carry they normally need a car seat... So, you are carrying their stuff, their car seats, and anything you may want to take.  Not that you will have time to read or do anything on the plane since you will be spending the time keeping them entertained. 

Now you know how I truly felt when Ms. Diva and I took the trip to WA State, LOL!

4. What is your idea of "spring cleaning"?  Moving the furniture, cleaning windows, a truly deep cleaning that normally includes going through closets and cupboards.  I have been working though on going through stuff/areas more often {see my update here}.   I have been keeping up with some areas better than others.

This was the first week I got through my 'morning list' before work.  Now that Ms. T is 4-weeks-old, we are starting to get a family routine going again.

5. What is the best book you have ever read?  I love reading, and to pick a favorite would be like choosing which child you love the most.  (:-)  You can check out books I have read on Book Reviews Page.

Regarding losing the baby weight:  I have my 6 week appointment (post C-section) this coming week and can then begin 'real' excercise {more than just chasing Ms. Diva around the place}.  I am having a hard time not snacking in the middle of the night when I get up to feed Ms. T, but I did pretty well this past week and only snacked once or twice total.  I went on a pretty drastic chocolate binge the last two weeks as part of my first period {yes it happened very quickly post-preggars this time} and am very happy that somehow I didn't add a few pounds on.  I am still at 173 pounds, and working down to 135ish.

I got the foot rest cover completed for Grandpa's room this week and will post pictures next week.  It was my only sewing accomplishment this week, and I am really hoping to get some sewing time in this weekend.  No new towels have been added to the towel shop for weeks now!  Ugh!  I am not going to worry about it, but I would really like to get some stuff done.

I did get the Bath Hand Towels switched out at Lather's yesterday, from Valentines to St.Patrick's.  I am still looking for a great embroidery design to use for Easter towels.  I haven't found the 'one' yet, LOL!

Till next week or my next post...

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Christmas is coming...

Working through some Christmas items to list on, my Etsy store. I will be taking custom orders through Dec. 1st.  Also, getting back into the swing of things by participating in two craft fairs this holiday season. 

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
