Is it really Sunday already?

I was so excited about a four-day weekend and I cannot believe it is already over! I also can't believe that we are almost into December. My birthday is in three weeks and Christmas is in four...oy! Geronimina will be here before we know it. Good thing our furniture is being delivered today (!!!) so she'll have something to sleep in. :-)


I wrote this post last night and was too lazy to turn on my computer and therefore was blogging from my iPhone, so this post was intended to be a short one. Just mainly wanted to show you two things I did over the weekend, but then I couldn't figure out how to make sure my iPhone was uploading pictures where I wanted them, so I decided I'd just hit the "publish" button this morning (pre Cyber-Monday shopping, woot!) when I could see it on my computer.  Anyway, here is the first thing I wanted to show you:

All of the great stuff I scored on Black Friday (consolidated into fewer bags so my husband wouldn't be annoyed, ha!)!  Those of you who are Facebook friends may remember this from my update, but I accidentally bought a lot for baby and myself and not a lot of gifts for other people.  Whoops!  That's what Cyber Monday is for, yes?  Thank the Lord for Amazon Prime is all I have to say on the matter.

The other thing I wanted to show you was how I got crafty over the weekend:


Long story on this, but the gist of it is that Dan and I went to a charity function a few weeks ago and there was a silent auction.  I saw a very similar wreath to this that I bid on, and was very disappointed when I didn't win.  I took one of the woman's cards and contacted her for pricing.  She wanted $50, which I thought was very reasonable, but Dan did not (go figure).  SO, I decided to make them.  Excluding the supplies I had to buy that we didn't have at Mom's (glue gun, extra glue sticks, paint and brushes), I ended up spending I think around $35 on materials - the wreath and ornaments were all 50% off at Hobby Lobby (LOVE that store).  Also, this wreath is MUCH bigger than the original one I bid on and got pricing for, so all in all I think it was a win - I definitely spent less making it than I would had I purchased it.  The wreath pictured above is the one I did for my Mom - the "E" is for Eaker.  Mine is not quite finished yet, but I will post photos along with a tutorial for anyone who is interested when I finish it, hopefully sometime this week.  Or if you are nice to me, perhaps I shall make you one since I now have all of the supplies.  :-)

Anyway that's all for now, tune back in tonight/tomorrow morning for our regularly scheduled programming: the 29 week update.  Lord, 29 weeks. 

Happy Monday!
