  Last week's Wishes;

1. START GOING TO THE GYM AT LEAST 2 TIMES A WEEK - I was out of town but still running around like a chicken with my head cut off.. but no working out =(
2. START SEWING AT LEAST 2 TIMES A WEEK - Even being out of town I worked on some really cute seat belt covers out of terry cloth and flannel!!! 

3. CALL MY LAWYER  - of course I called them back on Tuesday afternoon and they didn't answer or call me back yet! 

  This week's Wishes;

1. SEW A DRESS - I'm going to grow some balls this week!!! I want to start making her summer dresses AND I will do START that this week! 
2. GET MY LAWYER DISCOUNT AND CALL THE LAWYER - I cut them of like a few months ago b/c they were taking forever on my case, now the lawyer says they got a number from my insurance company. Pray it's a big number!!! LOL
3. WORK OUT 3 TIMES THIS WEEK - there are no if, ands, buts about it. this needs to be done. I don't care if I have to go by myself. All my friends say they want to go with me, but END up NEVER going. Well I am. Especially for 40 bucks a month... please believe! 
4. STAY ON BUDGET - this means no EXTRA spending on fabric, food, bags NOTHING!  
5. DON'T EAT JUNK FOOD/DRINK AT LEAST 3 BOTTLES OF WATER A DAY! - this is must. I know I don't drink a lot of water and it doesn't help when trying to lose weight. I want to get back to my PRE-Pregnancy weight. (don't laugh) which is 120 and I'm at 170 NOW! 

This weekend I......

I did everything (in the last two weeks)! I can't even believe it LOL I have been so busy the past few weeks. It's nuts!! I never thought that being a parent of two and trying to have my own life would be THIS hard. I'm so grateful for my mom though! It's Sunday night and I'm at work. I was told not to come in today, then he called again (YEP I answered like a dummy) and asked me to come in. SO here I am.... BORED out of my mind. Writing this post for you! =) 

My Easter was alright! We had somethings happen to a baby in the house (his hand got stuck in the treadmill) and some other drama, but I had a blast relaxing with family and friends for the week. Amiliana got so spoiled, and Josiah played the game most all of the time! 

I won't fill you up with too many pictures but just a preview of our week in pictures =)

AND of course I had mommy time!

DIY Tag Paci Leash

I found this a few weeks ago & I thought it was a brilliant idea with our trip coming up and Amillie really loves it! This is perfect for a teething baby!

What you'll need; 

1 piece of fabric 3x18"
Sewing machine (obviously)
A suspender clip
snaps (and or O rings)
Extra things - pins & a large safety pin

Start by cutting and laying out your strip of fabric.

Cut various pieces of ribbon and pin them to one side (having the ends of the ribbon hang over the edge of the fabric).  Don't pin them all the way from the top to the bottom.  Start about 3 inches down from the top and end about the same amount from the bottom. This is to make sure you have enough room for your clips and snaps.

Sew them in place.

Now fold the whole piece of fabric in half with the right sides together. Using pins to keep it closed. Sew a 1/4" seam and leaving the ends open. 

Now it's time to turn your paci leash to the right side. 
Start by using a large safety pin and pin it through ONE side of one end BUT don't pin it through both layers of fabric, only ONE. Like so....

Oh please excuse my nails!!! haha NOW... Pushing the pin down inside the fabric with your thumb and finger on one hand and scrunch the fabric up and over the pin with the other.  You will want to try and move your pin so that it is going over the top of the ribbon pieces and not through the middle of them. I made sure I could feel the pin right below the fabric.

When you pull it all the way through, it should look like this.

 Iron it flat & top stitch on both sides.

On the end you are attaching the clip too fold up about 1 inch over the suspender clip.  Notice the clip is right side down. (sorry for the fraying!! :\)

Do the same for the other end. Either you can attach snaps or the O-ring. or you can do both. I think I will do both next time so I can have the option or give it to someone later. 

THEN..there ya have it!

I have a busy busy week! I have an Easter Egg hunt to go to, since we won't be here for Easter, I still want to do something with Josiah around here. I work every morning til I leave. I planned to have Eater pictures taken by a friend, on the nicest day this week. Let's pray it really is nice! That same night I'm having a dinner date with another friend that is leaving VA. Then I leave on Thursday for my trip to Tenn.

I have a few blog posts planned, and I hope I can get them out. Seeing as I'm so busy I'm going to just have to find the time. I'm still apart of that #TeamNoSleep no doubt.

Have a great week!
