Today is going to be fabulous I can feel it!!

It is so gorges out right now! It's a warm 6 degrees and the sun is starting to shine and it's only 8:30..

This is fabulous!

If you aren't an Alaskan you have no clue how wonderful this is.

This means we are gaining day light!

No more living in the dark..

I love it!!

Thanks for every one who was so sweet to lift me up during my Blah day yesterday.
Yesterday during my blah fit I had to pick up Shelly from school. She asked me to take her to the local thrift store I said OK because I needed to find a vintage apron for a swap that I am in.
The gal I have really wanted an authentic vintage apron that you can tell was worn and used. I told her it would be hard for me to find one here in Alaska. Well I looked any way and almost peed my pants when I found 4 I could not believe it. So I bought 3 of them at the grand price of $3.00. I was so excited. I could not have even bout fabric for that. This is one of the aprons I found a classic red and white gingham apron with chicken scratch emroided on it and smocked at the waist. You cant see it very well Ben was trying to still the show and me being me I let him.. He is so darn cute..
I am not going to show the other 2 just yet because I want my partner to be suprised!
Now I better get off and start my day of getting things done. I have an apron that needs to get finished and a purse or 2 to make today plus my house is begging me to clean it so is my husband. So I better go.
So my question today is what are you all up to today any thing fun!

I don't comment every day, but I really do love your blog!!! I'm just trying to get ready to go today, you know, laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning, etc. The kids and I are headed to Houston for a week to stay with some friends kids while they go on a cruise.....think I can handle being the single mom of 6 kids?

I was busy with a bunch of stuff that I didn't want to do. Mostly laundry. I hate laundry. I need a cute apron to wear to get me more in the house cleaning mood!
