Laying low and digging deep

So lately at my casa we have just been laying low. I have been working, sewing, loving on my hubby and my beautiful baby girls and that has been about it. Outside of going to church and doing some volunteer work not much is really going on, I spend A LOT of time at home, but I think that is because it is cold and I am soooo ready for spring.

I have been reading a really wonderful book, it is by Beth Moore and it is called "So Long Insecurity" I am really enjoying it, and really taking some refuge in the fact that there are lots of other woman in the same boat as I am as far as self esteem or lack there of, and the huge struggle with all forms of insecurity. I love when I can read and take good council from other strong christian women! I have been doing some major soul searching and really trying to get the root of myself and to be honest I am really enjoying the ride. I really recommend this book it is a must read!!!

Hum... so this is really a rambling of many things but there is just one more thing... God has really shown himself to me recently in proving that if you are faithful he will indeed bless you with the desires of your heart! I will write more later and explain the situation in more detail but I will just say sometimes money just is truly no obstacle if it is meant to be God will make it happen.
Hope everyone is having a great week! Tonight is my last night of work for he week and I plan on spending the rest of it finishing up some sewing orders and hanging with my little girlys!

Catching up on a few things

Syd with her very first snowman she was so proud and by the way the thing on top is the snowman's hair she is to funny!
(and yes she did have gloves on she just ran back out to take the picture lol...)

Well Ihave had a pretty uneventful week and a half or so, it kind of went like this: Mia was sick, then Sydne was sick, then I was sick, antibiotics complete then back to the doctor Mia was sick, Sydne was sick..... I think you get the picture. So we have all been a bunch of sicklies around our house, somehow my hubby was able to stay health thank goodness because the rest of us have been a mess ! I do believe however we are all on the mend and getting back into the swing of things!
Other then that Sydne started in her new pre-k class and is doing very well, and Mia is doing wonderfully on the potty! If we stay on it she can go a large majority of the day dry without any accidents! Yay!!! I am so ready to be done with diapers!!
I have been doing a lot of sewing I had a few orders this week but I have also been working of some stuff for my girls for St. Patrick's Day and just trying out some new cute summer patterns! I will post some pics in the next couple of days. Well that is about it not much really going on, just trying to hold out for spring, man am I ever ready!!

My very first...

So this outfit is my very first attempt at creating something without using a pattern. I actually really struggle with creating things in my head, I can read and follow patterns all day but I thought I would give it a shot! It just buttons together at the top and in the back! Syd always wants everything to be red so to convince her to wear jeans I had to add a red ruffle. Ha.. she is such a girly girl. She wore it to school today with a little red shirt under the top it looked pretty cute! Well what do you think should I try more of my own creations or just stick with the patterns??

P.S. I just think she is the cutest little model!! hehe
