Fat Quarter Friday: Fabric Flower

Fat Quarter Friday: Fabric Flower

This week I made a cute little fabric flower. Although this craft is quick and easy to make, it took me about 3 days to complete it. Apparently having a baby makes crafting much more difficult (My last two Fat Quarter Fridays were done prior to having Ada). I was looking for inspiration for this fabric flower last week and found a tutorial that I based this off of, but when I went looking for it again I couldn’t find it. I’m not one...

Tuesday Weigh In – Week 1

The weight is coming off so fast right now, it’s pretty crazy! Biggest Loser fans know that yesterday was the start of the 12th season, so I thought that since Ada was born on Tuesday the 13th and Biggest Loser...

Awaiting Ada No More

So on the 13th of this month Ada was born: 8lb 1oz, 20.75 inches long, 10 fingers, 10 toes and all cute. Labor and delivery were both such incredible experiences. It’s hard to describe what it was like, but it was absolutely amazing and I’m glad I was able to go through it. They almost had to do a c-section because of some complications during the tale end of the labor, but it worked out that I was able to...
