"Nanner's" Christmas Giveaway!

Some of you may know that my big sis, "Nanner" is in the process of concieving! She and her DH, Darling Husband, have been trying for some time, however, their past attempts have been unsuccessful. She has created an IVF Fund so that they may save toward their next step for conception. This particular IVF fundraiser has made me want to post about it! I have a slight motive behind my madness! If you have been following me, you know that I have started a new hobby last week and have since decided to donated one of my blankets to her next Christmas Giveaway...

This is the link to her website so that you too may enter to win! There are several prizes this go round and I hope you choose help her and her DH by entering this Christmas Givesaway.

I hope you all visit Nanner and do what you can to help them Growing Their Own Garden!

I have decided to take up a new hobby!

One of the lady's at work makes these really cute blankets! I took a look at one she had just finished and decided that it was something that I would like to do!

Isn't that the cutest blanket ever?

I purchased my first couple of yards of fabric this past weekend and quickly realized it will take more than just a pair of scissors and time to create such a cute blanket! I had my friend bring up her supplies to show me what she uses and once I make one more trip to the fabric store, I will be set to start my new hobby!

This is the fabric I purchased to do my first blanket!

I will be selling these blankets once I get all my materials/supplies. These make adorable baby blankets, blankets to just cuddle on the couch with and they are thoughtful gifts for sitting in the bleachers at the Friday night football games! (Just a few suggestions)! If there is someone special that you might want to buy a blanket for, I will take orders via email at, or call/text me. The price will vary depending if I purchase the material or if you purchase the material and according to size: adult or baby.

Embarrassing Confessions!

I was reading my sister, Lianna's blog yesterday, and decided to join in on her Top 10 Embarrassing Confessions!

1. I brush my teeth in the shower, I think this is hereditary!
2. I have to have a drink sitting by the bed at all times! What... I get thursty in my sleep!
3. I wait till the last possible MINUTE to get out of bed in the morning to get dressed for work! I am very lazy in the morning and not a morning person AT ALL!
4. I secretly want to still be a singer as my career choice! But I understand that I am a normal person and will work like a normal person for the remainder! But man I wish I was a star! (LOL)
5. I love to wear Pajama's, as soon as I get home from work that is the first thing I do, change into my "PJ's" and am in them the rest of the night!
6. I hate to answer the front door! I'm not sure when this came about but I hate to answer or knock on anyone's front door! I know I'm very weird!!!
7. I love love love to eat Pizza! I have learned to refrain my self in the last several years, but I used to eat an entire medium pepperoni pizza all by myself! (That was in my depression days!)
8. I am extremely bad with money! I have enlisted my Dad as my accountant so that I can be better about maintaining my accounts
9. I never read as a child! I use to sit at the table and cry for hours on end before I would even pick up a book to open even the first page! But know that I have gotten older and apparently a little more knowledgable, I read ALL THE TIME! I love to read now! How strange the way things change the older you get!
10. I enjoy eating my chocolate frozen! Plain M&M's in the freezer are the best!

Okay, now it's your turn! What are some of your embarrassing confessions?
