Friday Fun

Here's what I did today:

Sick kids, home from school. Watched many movies...

Sick baby, in my arms all day (my back hurts now).

I cut out felt hearts to make a valentine garland like this, only with pinks, reds, and whites (and lots more than the picture shows). I hope my 7 year-old and I will find time to sew it soon (like before Valentine's day). It shouldn't take more than a few minutes.

I also spent time catching up on blogs in my Google reader. Carrie at This Mama Makes Stuff had a great post about what gear she uses while running, most specifically while training for her upcoming marathon (and of course I'm interested in that). I use the same water bottle belt as her (I LOVE it) and I just recently got a garmin forerunner (which I also LOVE)!

I should have been reading this today, while I was holding my sick baby... Book Club is Tuesday and I have quite a bit left.

I was also hoping to get a chance to paint my toenails today so I could wear those cute shoes. But that didn't happen. :-( Maybe tomorrow.


  1. I am so jealous that you won the shoes! They are adorable and don't worry about your toes. The story of the shoes makes up for undone toes. When do you plan on giving them away and will you let me know? I love this little's very fun. Don't worry about thank you's, especially home made. Girl you have 4 kids! good luck with the garland.

  2. Yeah, you got a garmin! I think its pretty necessary when you are training. Ryan has promised me one after I have this baby.

  3. What a fun craft. I got an itch to make a V-day craft with Clara this week and anticipated making little monkeys. They look like little red monsters/devils instead. Woops. Maybe next time I'll try the hearts.

  4. I need to finish reading the book too. That's probably what I should be doing right now. ;)

    I loved your RS pinewood derby idea! In my old ward the EQ did their own and it was a lot of fun to watch. I never thought of a RS one. I wonder how many sisters would actually do it?
