Great Site!!

I LOVE online shopping but HATE paying for shipping. I heard about this great site on the Nest.

Save Money With Free Shipping!

At first I thought it might not have common sites or truly free shipping but it has a lot of great deals.

Say a prayer

Our friends just bought a condo in Yorba Linda that is in the path of the fire. They just did a bunch of remodeling and are also due with their first child in December. Please keep them in your prayers.

Bleh Bleh Bleh

I sit here feeling like a total blob. The last few weeks, eh actually months have been a roller coaster when it comes to my diet and exercise. I feel like I have said, "I'll start tomorrow" a hundred times. I will do OK for a few days and then something happens that causes me to throw in the towel. Life is coming at me hard and although I've made progress, I still haven't conquered my emotional eating. When I feel stress my thoughts of food are magnified 1000%. I have found ways to cope with this but with all that has been going on lately, it has become harder to manage.

Part of what's made it so difficult is living with the ILs. There is just so much more food at my fingertips then when we lived on our own. I'm not blaming them at all and I know I am 100% responsible for what I put in my mouth. It's just so much easier to grab a cookie or piece of candy that wouldn't even exist in our own home. My ILs are frequent entertainers so even though the food that is consistently around isn't that bad, it's the treats and leftovers that kill me.

So on Sunday, I once again decided that I was going to be back in control. Yesterday I did well and even went to the gym. I am sore as a mofo today but I feel good. Just gotta take it one day at a time.

Baby Quilt

I guess we are in a new stage of life because now instead of attending a wedding every other weekend, it's a baby shower. We attended a couples baby shower for some friends this past Sunday. Thankfully, this was a very mellow, non-lame couples shower.
Since they do not know what they are having, I made this unisex quilt. I decided to skip the typical yellow and green. The damask fabric makes it a little girly and the geometric fabric is a little more masculine.
