Makeup is a beautiful thing, Addicted to Craft Stores, and Potty Training

I have got to start blogging more often. I wait a week and then post a huge blog. I'm sure that is annoying to those who are reading. Sorry - I'll try to do better.

1. I am now post-op day 8 after my Lasik surgery. Why is that so exciting, you ask... Because I get to wear makeup today. YEAH!!! I have been so self conscious all week without makeup. I have tried to minimize my time out in the general public because I am so embarrassed. I am so excited about "making my face up" today. :) I also get to get rid of those hideous goggles and my overnight eye patches today. Life is good...

2. I have come to the realization that I have a serious addiction. My name is Sarah, and I am a craft store addict. I mean, seriously, is it just me or is Hobby Lobby heaven on earth! I could spend hours (and hundreds of dollars) in Hobby Lobby, Joann's, Michaels, or Hancocks. I am attempting to be more crafty and have been spending those precious 2 hours a day of nap time scrapbooking, sewing, and making handmade cards. My favorite piece of equipment these days is my Cricut. It is a little computerized machine that cuts paper into all different letters and shapes. I love it! Here are some of my latest crafts...





(Leslie - if you are reading this, Baby Anna's gifts should be in the mail in the next few days. :)

3. We are STILL working on potty training. It is brutal, I must say. In nursing school, they always taught us that a child was ready to potty train when they woke up in the morning dry. Clayton has never done that. I figured that that information was just like other nursing school info that was only applicable in a perfect world. But... this morning (at 6:30 am - an hour before he usually wakes up) Clayton woke up screaming, "Mommy, I need to go tee-tee!!!" I stumbled into his room and took him to the bathroom. His diaper was completely dry! What's worse waking up an hour early or continuing to change diapers? Hmmm... not sure about that one yet. :)

Good Job, Clayton! Uncle Jeff and Aunt Becca are so proud of our Big Boy! Sarah, I know the make up thing was a huge sacrifice. You are my lovely sister that won't leave the house without make up and I am the girl who is lucky if she has some powder and blush on. Same genes, way different girls! Your crafts look awesome! You are totally showing me up! I am going to get back into scrapbooking soon. Love you all!
