There's a first time for everything, right? Well this week was full of firsts!
It started Monday when I decided to bake key lime pie:
Then I decided I wanted to paint, so paint I did! I went to wal-mart and bought some cheap paints, canvas and brushes. I didn't want to go all out and spend a ton in case I didn't like painting.
The next thing I did was sew. I've sewn before, but never without a pattern, which is what I did. I found a skirt I like on pinterest, and I sewed it based on some blogged instructions that made no sense and had no pictures. After several hours of yelling at the fabric, picking out stitches and laughing at myself, I made one massive mistake on the last stitch. It was aweosme! It turned out alright though, as long as you don't look too closely at it.
I hit some balls on the driving range with David. That's not new though. I did that in high school. Not real well, but I still did it. I did a lot better this last time. I didn't get any pictures though, sorry.
Nathan and I went to a record store. Ironic how finding old things was new to me. =) We got a great deal on some 45s, and we spent time with Wiz. It was awesome. I got a bit sick, but I still really enjoyed it.
My week of firsts ended with going to the lake to feed ducks. That wasn't a first for me, but it was a first for the kids. First time feeding ducks in the summer by the lake. Derek had the most fun, as he chased down a goose, threw rocks into the river and kicked ashes everywhere. I'll post more pictures later.
Next, I plan on cross stitching, hiking the Y, and maybe making noodles from scratch. Don't count on it though. =)
See yas later!
