I Went Outside to Play (with my new toy)

It has been a while. How are you? Me? Well, I have way too much to tell and a mind way to clogged so here is just a bit. I am potty training my youngest. My oldest is loving her position as a big sister. My husband loves his computer (aka his baby, which he is photographing right now). My husband bought me a new computer as well as a new camera (canon rebel T1I). My diet needs a revamp. My husband also bought me a new sewing machine (I haven't sewn since high school). Well, there is all too much to tell so here are a few pictures that I took today with my new camera. Enjoy mommies little play time. I'm just happy my fingers didn't fall off. (insert adorable wink here)

Oh, and don't steal my photos. I'm very fond of them. Thank you for understanding!


  1. Beautiful pictures Nicole! I am excited you now have sewing machine. We should all get together sometime and make a project. Hope you are having a good weekend!

  2. Woe! Sounds like you had a nice Christmas in February! Did you figure out the sewing machine? Eden kindly reminded me again to start sewing her birthday dress. :)

  3. Kelly, thank you! I'm very happy with the sewing machine. I've wanted one for quite some time, but I never validated the purchase. I guess that is what is there for. :) I think that sounds like fun. In fact I spoke with Sheri and Jenn about my sewing too!

    Sheri, it seems that way doesn't it. I think it's more of a bribe of sorts. ;) There is more to the story than meets the eye. It was definitely very nice of him and I don't think I would own anything if he didn't go out and buy it without my knowledge. I'm not very good at spending money. Oh, and Matt figured out what my problem was. I unfortunately hate to admit that I missed a step in my bobbin case threading which caused the lack of tension.

    As far as making a dress. Good for you. I thought it would be easy. I went out and bought templates and opened them up and immediately got tense and irritable. I almost immediately folded it back up for another day. I had no idea it was iron on. It just seems like an extra step. I might cheat and cut it out anyway.

    Any sewing tips or ideas are more than welcome here. ;) Thank you for the comments ladies!

  4. *Kelly it looks like I missed "Matt" in that is what - is there for.

  5. WOW i forgot just how amazing you are! Love these shots Nicole! What does Thurs look like for you? I think i may try and snag the car if you would be up for some company?
