No apologies

I just read a great quote in my new favorite Magazine called Mary Jane's Farm and I just had to share it...

Whenever I get one of those questionaires and they ask what is your profession, I always put down 'housewife'.  It's an admirable profession; why apologize for it?  You aren't stupid because you're a housewife.  When you're stirring the jam, you can read Shakespeare.
~Tasha Tudor

I am proud to be a housewife.  And prouder still that I have a husband willing to support my profession.

You should totally check out my friend Kara's giveaway.  HERE

Be green.  Be Godly stewards of our Earth and all.

Mid-Monday Madness

It is Monday Night.

It is 6:21PM.

It is Monday night. It is 6:21 PM and I am drunk.

I understand now why a certain elder family member (who shall remain nameless) had/has a drinking problem.

She had/has alot of kids, somewhere around a dozen... the exact number shall remain unnamed to protect the innocent... and all.

Also, the last 2?  Are twins...

I only have 3 kids...  But being drunk on a Monday night at 6:22 PM sure makes for some entertainment in my life as a (stay at home) Mommy.

Tomorrow night.  I will not be drunk.  Because this is just WAY too intoxicating... and I understand now.

WIP: Sew Liberated

My WIP's this week?  Ummmm, well I just got THIS in the mail...

I can't even discribe how much I love this book.  Love just seems like the wrong word.  I want to crawl inside the pages of this book and live there. 
So my WIP?  EVERYTHING in Sew Liberated.  EVERYTHING!!  Everything from the Funny Animals Children's Tote to the Farmer's Market Bag to the Mother/Daughter Blossom Blouse.  I want to do it all...

Did I mention that there is a blogger that goes along with this book?

Love it, love it, love it all.
