Winning Week (what's up with that?)

After years of not winning a single drawing drawing (seriously), I'm happy to say I broke that streak and have in the past few weeks won not one, but TWO! I should be out buying Powerball tickets in multiple quantities, maybe later. The beautiful nautically themed quilt I won from Coffee Mom arrived (along with three chocolate bars...thanks, Kathleen because I need those...). I don't have a picture posted of it yet, but I will before the day is out so come back! She obviously has great talent here, and I secretly covet that ability! I love to sew but cannot hand sew for the life of me! Thanks, Kathleen, I'm loving this quilt.

Last weekend while at a Vacation Bible School meeting (believe it or not, they do allow me to take part every year, lol) I won a backpack. Okay okay, mine was the second name drawn, but still counts, yeah huh it does. It's part of the sports theme we're doing this year, made to look like a basketball jersey. Again, photo will be upppp soon. I'm sorry, I am not doing well with this back to work thing, but eventually I get things done!


Okay, this next part I do have a photo of...the first of our neighborhood's swim team meets was last night; and while I missed the first half for a prior committment, I got to see my son Cody swim one event. It's his first year on the swim team (we've only been in this hood for two) and he did a fabulous job! He took first in his first two events (which I missed!), and I...I mean HE...will get ribbons for all of them. So...because I'm the mommy, I get to brag a little and post the few pictures I did get there in time to snap! I'm a bit biased, but I think my son Cody is amazing, he gives everything he does 100%. And he's aDORable.




Okay....this is 1/2 of what I promised....the quilt (and candybars!). It's hard to see, but it's a nautical quilt and has been largely hand-quilted. It's truly a work of art....thanks Coffee Mom! (I look a little wired here--I'm very sleepy, working like mad and it's showing...ugh! so cut me a little slack, plz--hehe it almost looks like I'm cross-eyed in the first one).

Yay Cody! That's awesome! Audrey and I were swimmers for years and years, so we know the amount of commitment that goes into that sport! (And so do our Mom and Dad - they drove us to practices for all those years!)

And congrats on YOUR win, too! Definitely go get those Powerball tickets!!
