Today's Real Post.

Aloha! No, I'm not in Hawaii. Wish I was though.

Anyway, I saw my Gainesville besties today. So sad that I'm leaving them. <3 <3 They're the greatest girls ever. I hope to see them often. Hopefully they come visit. And I'll come visit too. Layla started to cry when Chantee was leaving. <3 So sad.

I've started thinking of how much money people make off of things that would be so easy!! Example: EVERYONE and their mother makes bows now. Seriously! Have you noticed? Maybe it's just me, but I get bombarded with "Like my page!" invites on facebook for people who make nothing but BOWS all day long. Excuse me, but I was the queen of bows in High School. Don't assume I can't make them myself. And everyone seems to be doing it. I mean, can business really be poppin' for that many bow makers? I don't see a ton of bow-wearers. [Let me insert an apology to all bow-makers out there. Didn't mean to insult you. I think I got a bit carried away, actually. My point is, Bows are more popular than..well...popular stuff. lol]

So, I'm thinking of some things I feel would be fun to make and sell on Etsy, Facebook, etc. Some ideas:
  • Wreaths. I'm obsessed with the DIY wreaths on Pinterest. I want to make so many of them! I may have to start.
  • Jewelry. This is one you can really get creative with. Everytime I go into Michaels, I am drawn to the bead/wire/pendant section. I could get my Innovator side really going on that one. [Damn, now I sound like Vector Peeps with their CVI talk that no one understands. My apologies.] 
  • Aprons. I'm seriously diggin the fancy aprons these days. Fo shizz. I could make some pretty dank aprons, I'm pretty sure. I'm pretty handy with the sewing machine. It would be a time consuming process though.
  • BOWS. Because everyone does, right?
  • Iphone Cases. Yes, I'm inspired to make my own. Out of a clear/blank basic plastic case and some additions (rhinestones, paint, jewels, etc.) I could do that! ;] 
Any other ideas for some awesome crafty things I could make & sell from home? I'm pretty stoked on this idea, by the way. :) Rake in some dough. Speaking of which, I found some pretty fancy expensive china in my house. Not sure where it came from, but I'm sellin that shizz. ON EBAY bizznatch. :] I'm getting a little carried away. I should go to bed. Xoxo.


I can't help myself from thinking I have the greatest little family in the entire world. Seriously, does it get any better than Dmac & the McNugget?

I want to freeze frame mornings with Layla between 6am and 9am. Why? Because when she wakes up around 6am, I feed her and we lay on the couch together and cuddle. It's our morning routine. We always fall asleep together for those 3 hours on the couch. <3 It's the greatest time in the world. I really cherish it, because I know it won't last forever.

I find it mildly concerning when I notice that I have a test due that same day. Yeah, that was a lame answer.  

I decide to take the plunge and marry DMac. I know, BIG shocker. :P

It really hits me that Layla will be 6 months old in less than a month. Where'd the time go?

I can't believe how lucky I am when Layla looks at me and smiles. She is so perfect and I love her to pieces. I am SO lucky to have such a happy, healthy little girl.

I feel like I never, ever, ever want Layla to grow up. She's too much fun as a baby. <3

I feel like a really good person when I choose to donate to X-Cause when the cashier prompts me to. I feel even better when I ask if I can donate when I see the little paper thingy's hanging all around.

Do a SOMETIMES of your own! <3
