Still Alive

Hi my bloggy friends!

I know, I know, it has been entirely too long since my last post, yikes! I just checked, over a month! oops! In my defense, I was in the midst of packing, and then moving, and then unpacking (which is still in progress by the way...blech)

Anyway, we are settled here in the Bay Area, family comes over all the time! I love it!!! I have missed my sister, who is also my Best Friend, my bigger than me little brother who is working on hauling over the back yard (landlords said we could do whatever we wanted!!). I am getting even closer to my sisters in law because I actually get to see them on a regular basis! I have seen multiple old friends who I haven't seen in entirely too long.

Our little duplex is almost put together, I wish I could show you pictures, but the camera cable is still MIA. I have painted a couple (big) pieces of furniture and they turned out sooooooo pretty! I really like the colors, which is good, because I really didn't want to have to repaint them just yet!

Since I am home all day I hope that I will start being able to get crafty again, Kyle takes the car to work, so I am stranded (sort of) here all day. I have quilt squares that I have been cutting out, just to cut them out, a dress pattern that Kristen posted that I want to make because apparently it looks good on everybody and I really want a cute summer dress!

I will try to get on and post pictures sooner than another month from now. Hey! Maybe since I am home all day I will blog more... although, if all I do is stay at home, I won't have much to blog about... unless I do some back blogging... that could work! we will see... stay tuned!

PS. so it looks like I am a big fan of parentheses and ellipses today.

yay for parentheses and ellipses!

well, i super stoked for you to be so close to family!!! i wish all my family lived in one place, because family is so important! can't wait to see pics of your furniture projects and home, and i really hope you make the dress!!! i've made two for me and two for lola and feel the itch to make more! soooo easy!! (especially if you skip the pockets--i only put those on one dress because i'm too impatient for results!)

My excuse is that I have been without internet for 8 days. I'm borrowing my daughter's laptop while we are in SLO but don't want to stay on too long. Good to see you're settling in and getting together with family. We got together with Dan's siblings and families since they were visiting the same time we are. Had our traditional family BBQ tri-tip and chicken and brought over two trays of food (fruit and veggies) and just hung out. Liz put on a baby shower all by herself and it went very well. I was glad to help her out a little. Good to see I'm not the only one lagging in their blogging duties. I have pictures and things to write about but have to wait till our internet is back up...thanks Verizon. I think they fogot us. See you later, Carrie.
