Woo Hoo Wednesday - A Little Late

Soooo, life gets busy, ya know?

I gained a pound while we were in Mexico. Doesn't sound like a lot but it was only over 18 days. I really gotta cut out the booze when we're there. And I've put on another pound since we got back. I haven't been tracking my calories. Not doing so makes it FAR too easy to slip back into old eating habits. But, considering I haven't tracked in a little over a month, I haven''t done too badly.

Another fabulous Woo Hoo. We have a new g'daughter!!! Madelyn Elise joined our family last week, weighing in at 8 lbs 14.5 oz which might sound like a lot but it's pretty average for our family. We grow 'em big!

This makes our 5th g'child but only our second girl. Our other g'daughter is almost 14. I and the aunties haven't been able to buy pink frilly things for a long time so ya just KNOW this little girlie is going to be spoiled. 

Here's what I've been working on...

A little dress that I found here on Sarah Sweethearts.

And a pair of leg warmers from here . I haven't used dpn's in about 30 years. This should be an adventure...LOL.

And something for myself. This will be a shawl made from a free leaflet I picked up at Michael's.


  1. Congratulations on your new granddaughter!! Don't spoil her too much. Just kidding. I know that if I had a granddaughter, I would spoil the heck out of her. Erica says that I spoiled my grandsons, but I don't think I spoiled them as much as I wanted to. Have a great day. :)

  2. Thanks, Debi! Yeah, we still have to follow some of Mama's rules, don't we? If we don't, she won't let them come play with
