Thankful for Sunday . . .

Last week was an incredibly, long week. Nothing bad happened to me, it just wasn't a great week. I have been doing really great about staying on top of the blog . . . but this week I spent more time glued to the TV watching all the devastation in Haiti. A reality check of how wonderful I have it - how blessed my life truly is.

And even though I feel blessed, I still had a "long" week. Nothing went the way I wanted it to go. Obviously, the world doesn't spin around me - so I need to get over it! Right? And I am over it. But it still doesn't help the fact that I told people I would do things - and those things didn't happen! But it is a new day - a new week - and things are going to happen this go around. {Even if the world doesn't turn around me!}

First order of business - to get the settings on my camera adjusted! {Pictures soon to show you why!}

Saturday, I hosted a baby shower. We did an ice cream sundae bar. Do you know how many toppings you can find for ice cream? Oh.my.word and my new favorite is Smuckers apples and cinnamon {limited edition!} "Du'Wishus" as Hudson would say!

Since I had made her bedding 4 years ago {for her first son,} I knew what I was working with. She told me "funky bird on a branch." Really - that is what she said she wanted on a painting.


I am to please!


Definitely a bird. on a branch. and he is funky!


I love the wings.


And just because I haven't done a sneaky peeky in a long time . . .


Let me do something with the camera settings and I'll show the whole thing! When I was looking at the pictures I took, I cringed! The colors are really distorted.

My almost 2 year old little girl was sitting with me when I looked at this and she LOVED the bird!!! May need to turn it into computer wallpaper to keep her happy. :)
