15. Get professional family photos taken.
16. Volunteer. For something. Charity, because someone needs help, just help. One Fund Boston- proceeds from the bows I'm making and selling
17. Keep up with organizing my photos of Lucas. I know later on he'll appreciate it.
18. Ride my bike. (I'm totally bad at it.) Been a few times. Going to go more!
19. Save more money. Set up separate savings accts to keep track of funds!
20. Hand-in-hand with #19- stop buying craft supplies and/or use up the ones I have before I buy new ones.. (I have an attic full. Gotta tell myself enough is enough.) HAHA just bought some more...... addicted.

Luke also turned 10 months on Tuesday. That means 2 more months til he's 1. I can't handle it. 
So far he's completely done with baby food. He wants nothing to do with it. He says "done!" when he doesn't want it or when he wants to get up. He's been standing for longer periods of time and I heard he took 2 steps the other day.. He likes peanut butter and jelly or fluff sandwiches and still enjoys bbq sauce and hot dogs. He loves matchbox cars and giving kisses to our feet. He's so smart and keeps testing his boundaries. He's giving me gray hair but his hugs and kisses totally make up for it.

That's all that's been going on. Make sure to stop by and support Bows for Boston on my etsy page.

See ya!

5K news

Hi Guys. Guess what. I started 5K training. I'm so pumped. Here's the deal. I'm not a runner. I never have been but I'm totally making myself into one. I can run a mile on the treadmill but since I signed up for my first 5K, I feel like maybe I should start practicing outside. So, I downloaded a little app called Couch25K and have started. It's 3 days/week of intervals that gradually get harder as you go (obviously, right). Yesterday was day 2. I feel better than I did on day 1. That says something right? Now I just need to figure out some weight training for the off days and an eating plan and I think I'll be well on my way to being able to run a 5k and lose some of this weight.

Not a whole lot going on lately, just found out two friends are pregnant so I'm patiently waiting to find out what they're having so I can start making up some baby things for them (pretty much my fave thing to make).

I also really need to organize all my craft stuff. Maybe purge a little. Go through my attic, get stuff ready for a yard sale. It's hard though, parting with stuff, I feel like I never know if I'll need it again (and why buy it if I already have it?).

Oh! I'm also shooting my first wedding in over a year and a half on the 27th. I'm excited but kind of panicking because it has been so so long, but I know that once the day gets here, I'll suck it up and get the job done!

I also deactivated my facebook. It was just becoming a hassle to deal with all the negativity on there. Do I really care what song on spotify you listened to? No. E-cards are funny, but they get boring. Everyone's drama was just too much for me to deal with. I love my life, my little family. Isn't that what I should be focusing on. And if anyone wants to see updates of Lucas, they can always check in...

Have a great day everyone.
