So, remember how two months ago I said I was going to run a 5k? You don't? Well, check it out HERE. Well guess, what...I did it! I convinced another sister and a sister-in-law to do it with me and along with my original crazy sister who had the idea, the four of us ran on Thanksgiving morning. What was supposed to be only 3.1 miles was actually 3.5 and we kicked it. I am actually loving it and have plans to run another 5k in about three weeks and then I start training for a 10k. Woohoo!!

I don't know what's gotten into me lately, but I just have this overwhelming desire to create and change things. Not quite sure where it's all coming from, but I'm gonna ride this wave until it drops me off at the shore of all things lazy. Today's creation? A dress for Tatiana!
I'm not the best at sewing which is why I make friends with people who are.
Martha is so patient and she's got some mad sewing skillz,
so by combining her with me,
we were able to come up with this little diddy...

I remember everything about this day...picking up Lily and Aren to take them to the swimming pool for the baptism and bringing them flowers, Aren walking out of his tiny one bedroom apartment with flowers for us because he was so excited to be baptized, the bus ride, the baptism and confirmation, walking home and listening to these sweet friends sing "God Be With You Til We Meet Again". I remember taking Lily to work afterwords and she brought chocolates to give to everyone so they could celebrate this day with her. Love!
Fourteen years ago seems like yesterday. What I wouldn't do to go back there.

So,we moved into this house about 18 months ago. We bought this house because there really wasn't alot that HAD to be done, just some things we wanted done and slowly but surely things are happening. This weekend Rick and I decided that kitchen cabinets over the sink must go. It blocked the view into the dining room, which we hated, but we weren't quite sure what to do about the missing cupboard space. I think we came up with a good idea so, without further ado, here's our kitchen remodel - phase 1...
Here's the before
And the after...
We're still not quite done. We need to repaint the walls, paint the shelves and phases 2-? includes plans for granite tile counter tops, new lighting, new appliances, and finally cupboard painting, but for right now, I'm pretty happy!

My friend Sharilyn renamed me "MollyBeth" the other day after she found out I was thinking of doing a really cute craft for Thanksgiving along with canning my own apple pie filling. I wonder what she'll call me after she sees these cute little hair things I made all by myself...
