Minds are like parachutes – they only function when open. -Thomas Dewar

My first High Desert Etsy team meeting went amazing.  I met some wonderful woman and a few husbands and children.  I'm not going to lie and say that I remember all of your names but I love you all, already.  

We met at a cute coffee shop called Bodacious Bundts.  The woman that worked there was super nice and I had the best wildberry frozen lemonade ever!

To be honest the meeting inspired me.  I want to do so much more and I think I'm going to.  Next week will be all about sewing and creating.  Expect a lot from me.  I'll deliver.

BTW, we also passed by the International Banana Museum.  Maggi didn't believe that it existed but boy did I prove her wrong.  We must visit when it's open.  Maybe we'll go bananas!

"Reality is for people who lack imagination."

Yesterday started out amazing with a McCafe. I love them. Best thing ever. They put me in a great mood. Tim and I hung out and watched tv and he made me a new banner. You like? He also updated the banner for my store too. He's awesome as usual.

I didn't even want to see my sewing machine today. The bobbin refuses to wind pass 20% full and it's starting to anger me. I'm taking it to my mom's Friday to see if she can figure out what's wrong. I want to sew so badly. I want to make a dress. Lets hope that goes well.

I also weighed myself on Wii Fit today and I'm down to 141.5. Whoo hoo! I have a huge bruise on my ankle bone so I didn't go to the gym tonight. Instead I stayed at home and had some of Tim's home brewed beer. So tasty.
I also posted something new on Etsy. I have lots more stuff. It's just taking pictures that's the hard part.

Today we hung out and did some errands around town. Tomorrow is the big day to see if we can get the machine to work. Wish me luck.

“In a mad world, only the mad are sane.” - Akira Kurosawa

Big Bear was so much fun.  We went with Maggi, one of the few friends I have left, Steve, her husband, and Maggi's mom, Diane.  I can't believe that my wonderful husband went out with me with people he's never really met.  The drive was easy and we parked right by the ski lift.  We went up and then explored the terrain.

After the exploring, we hiked back down the mountain and went to "The Village", where there is a lot of shopping.  Cute stores and nice atmosphere.  We had lunch at the pub and Tim had a nice beer and chicken strips.  I had a cheeseburger that hit the spot so well after the hike.  We shopped around after and just enjoyed being together.  Amazing.

I can't believe that I got so lucky to find the best man in the world on my first try.  He blows my mind and then goes to Target and buys me a lap pad for my lap top so my legs won't get hot.  I never expected it but when I got it, I knew that Tim was....there are no words.
