-just a different craft book

Silk Ribbon Embroidery by Chris Rankin
-I used to do this when I was younger and want to get back into it!

25 random tidbits about myself...

1. I enjoy cooking. Now that my husband and I are both a teacher/coach (especially during basketball season) we don't get home until way late so I can't make too many nice dinners anymore. We have Soup Sundays every Sunday that we look forward to!
2. Along with cooking, I LOVE cheese. I put cheese on everything and Jon once said "you put cheese on things that don't even need cheese". To which I replied "EVERYTHING needs cheese".
3. I love to read. I try to read a little bit every day, which lately I've been falling behind on. But I do have my book read for next month's book club already!
4. I love a nice glass of wine. I'm more of a white wine or blush wine person.
5. I love taking pictures. I got a new camera for Christmas and I love just taking pictures of everything. I really am enjoying taking sports pictures of all the kids we coach.
6. I love cats (yes, I am a crazy cat lady). I have three cats at home, Ozzie, Izzy, and Gibby and I LOVE them.
7. I hardly wear makeup or fix my hair other than a pony tail to work, since I get home late every night I would rather sleep in longer than put makeup on!
8. I just had shoulder surgery in November. I dislocated my shoulder 5 times which was the cause of needing surgery.
9. I LOVE being married! Jon is my best friend and it was the EASIEST/BEST/SMARTEST decision I've ever made!
10. I wanted to go into Public Relations after college, but then became a teacher. It was a good decision, I love the kids and coaching.
11. I want to have 3 children. I love kids and can't wait to experience being pregnant. Jon will be a GREAT dad.
12. My favorite sport to watch is baseball. Go Astros! (Go Cardinals after the Astros suck).
13. I love scrapbooking. It's very relaxing.
14. I sell handmade crafts on me out!
15. My favorite music is country. George Strait, Pat Green, Clay Walker, Kenny Chesney, etc...
16. My favorite color is turquoise.
17. I have a shoe problem! It doesn't matter if they are sneakers, heals, or flip flops-I want them all!
18. I am NOT a morning person. There is nothing worse than waking up from being super comfy.
19. I enjoy dumb reality shows and I can't help watching them. Rock of Love, the Hills, etc. My favorite non-reality sshows are The Office, Scrubs, Grey's Anatomy, Priviledge, and How I Met Your Mother.
20. My goal for my lifetime is to write a children's book. I love reading/writing. I'm not sure what kind of childrens book, but I'm sure it will include a cat or two!
21. My first concert I ever went to was The Moody Blues when I was a little girl.
22. I love being a foot shorter than my husband. I can wear high heals (as high as I want) and I love it when he rests his chin on my head!
23. Jon and I were engaged for less than 7 months before we got married.
24. I love an excuse to through parties. Anytime I can have people over I do.
25. I'm addicted to blogging. It is an awesome way to keep in touch with everyone, especially when we are all soooo spread out in the US.

Soup Sundays

Soup Sundays Blog
2009 is the start of Soup Sundays! My husband and I love soup and I have so many recipes that I've been wanting to try out. So, I decided that Sundays would be a great day to make soup, and every Sunday I plan on making a different soup. I started in mid January because we were out of town in the beginning! Check it out:
