Laura, don't worry about us. We know you are crazy busy. You just worry about getting your work done my dear.

Brenda, you would love it. Things truly taste so much better then being fried in oil.

So glad Baizley is home and doing good.

Dee, I have a air fryer and I love it. You can make chicken, fish french fries whatever you want to without heating your house up.

Good Morning!

Sunny here today and about 21 degrees so actually not bad. I have been doing well with my eating plan but the exercise has been lacking. This head cold is kicking my butt. Oh well- I will resume after I can breathe out my nose!

Stephanie- so glad all went well with Baizley.

Dee- emoticon start where you are and don't look back

Jill- I bet you are excited to get home and see your new house! I hope the kids were able to get the remodel done without any setbacks.

Laura- You are almost done!! Hang in there!

Hey Brenda, Kim & Beverly!

Keep on trucking, girls! emoticon

Looks like a I have several posts to catch up. Study group went really late tonight. Didn't get home until after 10pm and still had to do dinner and a couple other things. I'll promise to try to catch up tomorrow. I'll get the posting done in a few minutes.

Only 3 more in-class sessions and then I'm done! Can't wait to have some free time again.

Keep it going ladies!

Hello friends! Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. Baizley's operation went smoothly, and she's doing great. She was moved to a room about an hour ago, and she should be discharged tomorrow morning, as long as there aren't any problems. I'm so glad this phase of her treatment is behind her. She'll be in leg casts for three more weeks, until her sutures heal, and then she'll only have the brace to deal with.

Beverly - I've wanted an air fryer for a long time now. What brand did you buy?

Wendi - I hear you on the lack of counter space in your kitchen. That's one reason I don't own more appliances than I do. I have a multi-cup coffeemaker, a Keurig, a toaster, an Instant Pot, a microwave, and a can opener taking up my space right now. I'm glad Joel is doing good. I hope you feel better soon. *HUGS*

Brenda - I love your Christmas themes! That is such an awesome idea. I usually decorate with snowmen, but this year I'm planning on a farmhouse-style Christmas.

Jules - Those memes are hilarious!

Kim - I love, love, love those shirts! Too cute! I don't believe I've ever watched the Grinch movies.

Jill - Did you have a good visit with your son?

Hello Dee and Laura! *waving*

Have a wonderful afternoon!

Stephanie

Prayers for Baizley toay.

Hope you had a great weekend Laura.

We have been in Oklahoma City the last 2 days - the winds were awful yesterday so we just stayed put for the day and only 16 degrees this morning.

Been really slack on the exercise and eating - need to get my act together.

Hi to Brenda, Kim, and Wendi.

Good Morning!

Stephanie-prayers for Baizley!

Kim- people are like that here too....you'd think they would learn.....nope!

Laura- hope your weekend away was relaxing.

Brenda- I've been wanting to start a puzzle but not sure these kitties would leave it alone!

Joel was home from college for the long weekend. Was good to see him. He couldn't believe how much the dog had grown! Lol. He's doing good and I'm so happy he has adjusted well.

I caught a cold so been slacking a little on the exercise. My head is so stuffed up in the morning. Ugh!

Hope everyone has a lovely day!

Stephanie, Thoughts and prayers for Miss Baizley for you sure today. Please let us know when she is done.

Welcome back Laura, I hope you and hubby had a great time!

Brenda, I love reading about your days with your sister and your mom. Brings a big smile to my face. And we may decorate. The dogs tend to knock things over so it just depends.

Wendi, we got a smidge of your snow and people have forgotten how to drive in it. Goodness. Itís like there is feet according to the news.

Have a great day ladies.

Hello friends! So sorry I've been MIA the past few days. Shawn is on vacation until next Monday, and we've been busy. Plus, tomorrow is Baizley's surgery on her feet, so we'll be gone most of tomorrow. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers, if you don't mind. I'll check in as soon as I can to let you all know how she's doing. The doctor said the procedure should only take about 30 minutes once they have her sedated, but she'll have to stay overnight in the hospital for observation since she's under two months old.

Thank you for your prayers! We truly appreciate it.

Stephanie

Thanks ladies. I am really having fun with my Christmas crafting which is a good thing. Last year we didnít even put up a tree. Probably wont this year either because we celebrate at the kids. But, I will have my ornaments hanging all over my house. LOL And the kids will have tons of them.

Jill, I hope you had a great time at your sonís

Brenda, So fun baby talk!!! I canít wait for your little one to get here. I watched Hallmark movies most of the day yesterday. I love them. I really enjoyed the new one Friday night (Holiday for Heroís). I cried at the end when they were doing the toy soldier dance and the entire Army Unit came home.

Wendi, sorry ya lost. And driving in the snow. We are getting our first measurable snow tonight into tomorrow. Means people will forget how to drive ugh.

Dee, glad to see you back posting I missed ya my friend.

Stephanie, Your sign is so cute. And yes you totally need a cricut. LOL

Wendi, nope not transfer paper, it is what is called HTV Heat Transfer Vinyl. You cut the design out and weed the negative pieces out and then iron it on.( I have a heat press). I am truly hooked! I have the cricut you are talking about. They have truly changed a TON since then. You can learn to crochet itís super easy I taught myself watching Youtube videos.

Brenda, you need to make some grinch ornaments. LOL They are super easy Stephanie, your sign is so cute! Love it! You truly need a cricut. LOL

Beverly, I have one. I like to make fries mainly in mine. And Chicken nuggets.


I have several other ornaments to make yet. I am going to do some snow men and some santaís. I am also going to work on door signs and making Missy's snowflakes today.

Love all the cute Christmas items you're all working on, plus all of the great ideas!

We usually"theme" our Christmas tree and decor...I have a lot of stuff! Sometimes snowman, travel, Hawaiian, etc. This year I'm going with Grinch! Even the dinner will match with Roast Beast (beef) and Who Hash (potatoes)... I'm excited!

Have a fantastic day and a crafting weekend!!

Good Morning!

Wow! You girls have been busy!! I used to do painted wood crafts ( a lot of cut out ornaments) and some signs. I also do counted cross stitch and anything else I find fun to make like wreaths and trees! I made a wine cork christmas tree for my sis last year. (She collects christmas trees). I just need to get back to it. Just seems like I never have any time but now you girls are inspiring me! I have never learned to crochet though. My grandma taught me to knit but I don't remember how to now. Maybe some day!

Jill- so excited for you that you get to see that granddaughter! I can't believe she's 5 months old already! Sounds like your trip has been fun!

Kim- That grinch ornament is so cute! Love everything! Is it transfer paper that you do the designs for the shirts on? Sorry so many questions. I was just unaware that you could do so much with the cricut. The one I had was the first one and it was small and I just used it for scrapbooking a little bit and some cards but you have opened up a whole new world for me.

Stephanie- enjoy your family time! I get what you mean about having hubby around all the time. We work together but he is out all day and never answers my texts or phone calls! So, if he were around all the time, it would drive me crazy! I have my way of doing things and he is not very organized......enough said! Love your recycled sign! So cute!!

Laura- Have a great weekend and happy anniversary!

Brenda- that grandson is going to be so spoiled! Can't wait to see pics of the things you make for him!

Beverly- I don't have an air fryer but a lot of people like them. My parents have one and I think they like it. I have been debating on getting one. My biggest issue is another appliance to put somewhere. My storage space is so limited in my kitchen and if it goes downstairs it stays downstairs! Let me know how you like it!

Dang! I gotta get busy! Basketball this weekend so run run run! Have a great day all!

Good morning, friends! This is going to be a busy weekend, so I donít know how much Iíll be online. Tomorrow weíre having a get-together for my mother-in-lawís birthday and Sunday weíre having Thanksgiving dinner at my momís house. (We have to do it early while my stepdadís kids are all home from their pipelining jobs). Shawnís on vacation next week, and I dread it. Donít get me wrong, I love the man, but he drives me batty when heís home every day. We could never work from home together. LOL.

Thank you all for the sweet comments on the window I made. I plan on dry-brushing a little white paint on it today and then sanding it again to make it look more rustic. I made this sign yesterday too, using an old Dollar Tree fall sign I had. It was fun.





Kim - I love seeing pictures of your crafts. Those are so awesome! I need to save my money and buy a Cricut. My utility room is slowly but surely turning into a craft room. LOL. It is so messy right now.

Laura - Happy Anniversary! I hope you and hubby have a wonderful time on your mini- vacation.

Jill - Vicksburg, MS is only an hour or so from where I live. Iíve been there several times. Wishing you safe travels today!

Beverly - You should post pictures of your crocheting. Iíd love to see it.

Brenda - Same for you! Iíd love to see pictures of the hat and blanket. I know your grandson will cherish those forever. I still have Matthewís blanket my mother-in-law crocheted when he was born. I treasure it.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Stephanie

Sorry Wendi, I am a bad influence. I just love to share. I actually have 3 cricuts believe it or not. My son got me the first one like 10 years ago and I never ever used it. He got it for me when I was big into scrapbooking. Then my mom borrowed it and I forgot I had it. LOL Sooooo it is now in Matthewís garage. Missy was going to use it for work. Then, I bought the Air 2 and a month later got the Maker. Then I get into all these groups on facebook and see all the other stuff I have to have. Oh lord it goes on and on. Lol

Laura, stay out of Hobby Lobby that place screams open your wallet. LOL Happy Happy Anniversary to you. I hope you have a wonderful get a way. I love my Santa too. Here is one I put on a shirt. Not sure what I will do with the red one. Probably put him on a canvas.



Jill, you should see my craft area. Itís a nightmare. LOL But sorta know where things are.

Beverly, oh you would get things done eventually. LOL I love to crochet as well. I am not real good at it either, but I enjoy it. I have so much yarn it isnít funny.

Brenda, please share your hat when you finish it. And the blanket. I love that you are doing those, that baby will have those forever. I still have Matthewís first blanket and Kaitlynís as well. Keepsakes for them.

Here is another shirt I made when I was just playing around. I have a lot of these I am playing around Shirts. LOL So does Missy She likes to wear them to work. I donít sell anything, I always give it away to someone and she is usually the one. LOL

And the Grinch Ornament


Not sure why these are sideways

Happy Anniversary Laura! So glad you're getting a weekend to relax and have fun!

Loving all the crafts on here...such wonderful items and great ideas!

Right now I'm crocheting a baby hat for my grandson-to-be! It's an aviator hat and I'm making it to fit next winter. Next, I'm sewing him a baby blanket that he can sleep with or carry around. It's in aqua, cream and gray with cute bears in a forest. I'm going to work on Christmas too...just don't know what!

Have a great weigh in!!

So crafty you all are. When I purged stuff I got rid of almost all my craft stuff except for the cricut. I live in a small house and if it isn't out in the open you don't use it so decided to purge and if I really want something homemade I will hit up the local craft fairs. emoticon

Praying everything goes great for Baizley. Will definitely be praying for her.

Way to go Wendi on the workouts.

We spent 2 days at Anniston, AL and made a trip over to tour the Talledega Speedway. Had a great time. Tonight we are in Vicksburg, MS. Hoping to be in Dallas, TX tomorrow night or early Saturday morning. Need to see my little granddaughter - she will be 5 months on the 11th - time has gone so fast.

Happy Anniversary Laura and enjoy your weekend.



Jill

Loving the crafts! Beautiful! Can't wait until I have time again. I have purposely avoided Hobby Lobby for 4 years.

I am taking a breath when I can. Wanted to let everyone know that I am actually taking a bit of a trip this weekend with hubby to celebrate our 20th. Nothing too exciting but I'm looking forward to some shopping and some pool/hot tub time. I am suppose to have wifi so I will probably be on at least in short bursts (can't fully get away from my homework). When we get home on Sunday, we will start working on putting up the Christmas tree to give the new kitty some time to get used to it before we decorate it.

Sounds like I'm seeing some good choices being made and some very happy grandbaby news. How wonderful!

Weigh-ins tomorrow! Don't forget to total your points for week 1 as well.

Oh, and I don't know what you are going to do with it, but I LOVE that santa!

Stephanie, Yes I will be using my cricut to make the ornaments. I will put glitter in them and then decorate the outsides. Love your window as well So pretty! I canít make bows to save my life. My mom use to do all that kind of stuff, but I didnít get the crafty gene.

Wendi, the window cling comes in rolls. Itís super thing obviously but Missy loves it. We did pumpkins, bats and of course zombies for Halloween. They are so cute and you can see them from the street. How awesome Jack wanted to play board games. Yes, take advantage of it now while you can. I know I do.

Here is my Santa I did. I actually did 2 this read one I haven't decided what I am going to do with. The other one is white and I put it on a black t-shirt. Love it. Took about 2 hours to weed.

Then attached is my pumpkins, ghosts, bats and zombies. These are window clings.

So, it's craft day in the Sullivan household again. LOL. This morning I made this rustic faux window and Christmas wreath. It didn't take too long. The hardest part was try to make the wood look distressed with sandpaper.

Good Morning! Warmed up a little bit...up to 19 this morning. We haven't had wind though so it really isn't bad. (it is a bit odd that we haven't had wind.....it is the norm to)

Stephanie--Love your lanterns! Very pretty! And yes keep posting pics of your crafts! I love it! Glad Baizley is doing well. It really is amazing what they can do these days. My mom had a club foot when she was born. She was an extreme preemie though so I think she was a toddler when they fixed hers. Of course back then it was mainly the braces.

Kim-I have fond memories of the game trouble too! Jack & I played parcheesi on Monday. He said we need to play more board games and he's almost 13. This is my opportunity and I know I need to take it. So whether I feel like it or not, if he asked, I am playing! He beat me but it was a close one! Can't wait to see your ornaments. Do you buy the cling paper for the cricut? Does it come in sheets or rolls? I need to learn more!

Brenda- I wish our highs were in the 40s! lol! Share if you come up with a craft to make! I'm trying to get ideas!

Gotta go.....dog is puking....UGH! Have a great day!

Good morning, friends! Supposed to rain all day, but thatís okay because I have another craft planned. LOL. Iíve been on a roll with these crafts lately, but it keeps my hands busy and my mind off food, so it helps. If it looks worth a darn Iíll post a picture when Iím done.

Brenda - Your herpes comment seriously made me laugh out loud. That is so true. I saw some rustic bell ornaments at Dollar Tree yesterday that were burgundy (favorite color) and SO pretty, but I didnít get them because they had glitter on them, and I hate cleaning up glitter. LOL.

Kim - Making ornaments sounds like fun. I saw a ton of the clear ball ornaments in the craft section yesterday. I may have to try that. Do you make them with your Cricut?

Have a wonderful day!

Stephanie

Stephanie, DIY videos are the worst. LOL I have so many ideas and so much stuff to make them with. I forget why I bought what I bought. LOL Yay for Baizley that is awesome!!!! Sounds like she is progressing a lot faster than they anticipated. That is wonderful. Your lanterns are really pretty.

Wendi, way to go on the exercise my dear. You are rocking it! We are getting snow today and a high of 30 ugh. My Cricut is right in my living room literally so the dogs are right there all the time I havenít had much of a problem as of yet. As soon as I get my first ornaments done, I will def share.

Brenda, yes, yes I Know that glitter is herpes for sure. Itís so funny to see Doug with glitter on his face every once in a while. LOL He doesnít care one bit. And my little dog has some on his fur. He has to lay right at my feet so he gets it a lot!

I am thinking I am going to make a Grinch ornament for sure. Both of the boys love the grinch. And a Cat in the Hat one for Leo as well. And Luke is totally into beyblades so I may make one of those for him as well. And Missy wants snowflakes on window cling so that his also on my list of things to make this weekend.

The boys loved the new game. They are so very fun.. We played trouble, zingo, I spy, and a castle game that they have then we cuddled on the couch. Poor Leo has a cold so he wasnít feeling up to doing much and Lukie wanted to play with is ipad. So cuddling we did. I love it!

Laura, I hope you are taking time to get a breath or two while you are studying.

Dee, where are you ???? Been thinking about you my dear.

Beverly How are you doing my dear?

Kim - You know that glitter is the "herpes" of crafting...it just keeps coming back! LOL. It sounds like you're prepared to make a lot of fun stuff! We had Trouble when we were kids...loved popping the dice!

Stephanie - It sounds like Baizley is doing great! A miracle what they can fix nowadays. Sending prayers for her upcoming surgery, but I bet she does great! I love your lanterns you made...very pretty!

Beverly - Wishing you a fantastic first week back!

Wendi - Brrrrr....only 8 above? Yikes! We're still in the 70's during the day, but it's cool at night (upper 40's). Good for you with all the exercise... you're doing great! I'm sure it helps warm you up too!

I love crafting and I love Dollar Tree! I used to make homemade gifts for everyone at Christmas. I'm thinking of doing something this year for fun...I miss it! I usually make food goodies for everyone, but maybe I'll cut back a bit and add a craft gift!

Happy hump day! Pushing hard tomorrow for a successful weigh in!

Hello friends! Baizley's appointment went well. Her feet look SO much better already. I was really amazed. The doctor scheduled the surgery on her heels for next Tuesday, so I'm dreading that. (This is the surgery where her Achilles tendons are cut). She'll stay in the hospital overnight, and she'll start wearing the braces on her feet after the surgery, but she won't have to wear the casts anymore. She did so good today, and I got lots of lovin. I wish I had taken some pictures. I'll try and remember to do that next time.

Hey Beverly! *waving*

Wendi - Way to go on that exercise! You are really rocking it! I'm very proud of you! Here is a picture of the Christmas lanterns I made. I used two green wax burners, two vases, some burlap fabric, two flower picks, a couple of LED lights, and lots of hot glue.

Good Morning!

So I tried pilates today. It was a hip/thigh workout. Probably won't be able to walk later!! It was intense. I've always been afraid to try it but I did like it, you can really feel your muscles working! It snowed here, just enough to make a white covering and it is cold --only 8 above when I got up this morning. But the sun is shining and it is going to be a beautiful day.

Beverly-yes! Keep pushing! You are doing great! You keep me going!

Laura-I'm taking it one step at a time every day!

Brenda-great job on your choices. You always inspire me!

Stephanie- hope Baizley's appt goes well. The good thing is she won't remember the casts! Please post pics of your lanterns. And any ornaments that you do! I'm trying to get some new ideas!

Kim-I love crafting! What kind of ornaments are you making? Post some pics! I need some ideas. I really want to get a new cricut machine too but I need to find a crafting space away from animals 1st.

Well I better get to work! Have a wonderful day, everyone!
