So I worked hard all day and made some pretty cute blue and green tu tu leg warmers. I think they turned out really cute and I am pretty proud of myself. Most of the time I fudge the bucket and my stuff turns out lame and I wish I had done things different but this time I didn't dissapoint myself. YAY! I'm also really excited because in a couple days I will add up all our sales for March and make our first donation to JFA.

Tonight my dad took us to a roadster car show. It was pretty cool. There were lots of REALLY nice cars (duh.) I met a guy named William in one of the booths who used to be a Marine and I bought a metal sign of a pin up girl in a Marine cami color swim suit and helmet that says," Hit the Beach," and he gave Bella a sweet little sign for free. Awesome! I have been getting lots of free stuff lately....Anyways, my favorite car was a really cool old woody. I want it soooo bad! Oh well our Dodge Neon gets us where we need to go....most of the time lol! For some reason I can't get the pictures to post so I will have to try later...
It's hard to be in the military. It's hard to be married to the military... but it is somehow worth it and you create bonds and friendships that you can't get anywhere else. I am proud of my husband and I am SO glad I don't have to worry about paying for health care...even though sometimes military hospitals make me want to scream lol! I can't wait to have my husband back in July and I miss him tons! I miss seeing what a great daddy he is. He used to do EVERYTHING for me and I got spoiled and now he is gone and I am dying without him. I don't think I changed one diaper the first week after Bella was born...I also don't think I got off the couch the first couple weeks....or was it the first three months lol? Idk how single moms do it...or Army wives...Marines are only deployed about 6 months.....army is at least 12 I think! I'm SO SO SO very lucky.

Fontanna and I have started to doll up the girl's leg warmers more and they are adorable! I love the boy/neutral ones too because they look like men's dress socks. How cute to match daddy's socks! We have had a few sales already and I can't wait to do all the math at the end of the month and donate to the cause of JFA!

My sister and I went to Pocatello to visit my other sister. It was fun. We went to the pool and my daughter LOVED it. It was nice to see her and her baby since all of my family lives in the Boise area except her... well and me. My sister got professional pictures taken of her son and daughter and then she had some pictures left on her camera so we popped Bella in a tutu and took some. I am SO excited to see how all the pictures turned out. She does really great work and has taken pictures of my nephew and his cousins before so they should be amazing. I can't wait to post them! I still need to post our family Christmas pictures.......

Fontanna and I made a ton of legwarmers. They are great for when the little ones start crawling and will fit up until they are fairy princesses (or princes lol) running around. They will especially be great for where I live because it gets SO hot in the summer that my baby girl will probably only wear a diaper and a pair of these to protect her legs. It really doesn't get below 110 degrees for most of the summer. Anyways I am gonna make a tutu for my daughter and slap a pair of these on her for her professional 6 month pictures. I'm pretty excited! Well the precious little monster is starting to scream. Gotta go love on her.
