the chair

The "trash" chair. Yes, I picked this little beauty up on the side of the road right before Thanksgiving. I did make myself drive past it once. I told myself if it was still there on my way home from (probably) WalMart that I would stop. It was still there! 

I know, I know....I said Thanksgiving. I finally finished it today. I had planned on using another fabric, but it ripped as I was stretching it across the seat. So this is a new fabric from Eddie Bauer. Joann's has all of their upholstery fabric 50% off. So I got all of this fabric for $10! I also got the nail head trim at Joann's too.  

Here's another pic of my living room. I designed the "Windish" sign. I really love the way that it turned out! It's a metallic canvas.  So it's shiny:) Also, that bench is my sister's old head board and foot board. Mom stitched up the cushion for me.

I'm putting everything another 20% off! Head over to etsy for your last chance at MoreyGirl baby gifts! 

I know that it's sad, but I am still going to be sewing. I'm just going to focus on handbags and purses! Also, I am going to be starting my own little line of baby announcements and wedding invites and such!  Keep a look out at for these additions! 

Check out my flickr page for some examples!

My parents

Oh, how I love them! 

I can't really write any other words that genuinely express how I feel about them. It's just a week short of one year since this happened. 

It was one foggy day. But I don't think anyone realized how bad it was. I will never forget Mom calling me to tell me.  Dad had been in a bad wreck. Another semi had pulled out in front of his semi and he was on his way to the hospital in an ambulance. I had been getting the boys ready to go eat lunch with her. So all I had to do was get in the car. I called Matt first but he was already about an hour and a half from home. So I called Grandma Windish to watch the boys and Matt's Uncle Michael was able to go with me. I'm glad he did, just talking to him while we drove was enough to keep my mind distracted. The hospital he was taken to is about 40 minutes from home.

I got to the hospital before Mom did that day. Only because the way that she would've normally went to the hospital was where Dad had his wreck, so she had to turn around and go the long way. When I got to the ER, I had to fill out some papers before they would let me see him. I couldn't hardly sign my own name, let alone think of what my parents address was, the address I had grown up with. 

They finally let me go in. Dad was a bloody mess, to the point I only recognized his hands. He had glass from the windshield all over him. His whole head was already swollen pretty badly. Both eyes had cuts either above them or all around them. He has false front teeth, but the nurse had taken them out. He looked horrible, like Quasimodo. I went up and held his hand, he was still pretty confused on what had happened. He asked me who I was. Talk about your heart dropping clear down to your stomach. But I explained to him that he'd been in a wreck. He called me Hez (some silly name I've been called since I was little). I don't have a picture of him in the hospital. Believe me, you don't want to see it.

Mom and my brother Jake ran in about 10 minutes after I first saw him. I called my sisters and let them know what had happened. I don't know what was really worse, being able to see him or wanting to and not being able to see him. My sister, Lyn finally came in too. I told Michael that he could go on home and I would ride home with her. We stayed that night until Dad's MRI and catscan were finished. By the time we were ready to go home, he was joking and talking with us. His whole head was covered in bandages, with one eye uncovered so he could see. Picture a soap opera brian operation's bandages. He even wanted to see himself in the mirror. I think that scared him. 

Dad amazingly got to come home the next day. There was a lot of physical therapy and followup appointments but he's doing well today. Still driving a truck.
I think that my body unconciously shook that whole day. Now I am usually the one that's crying and getting all emotional, but I held it together pretty well that day. We won't talk about what happened that night after I got home. I am so thankful...oh, how I love my dad and mom.

Look at these kids

They crack me up. I've been messing around with my camera, trying different settings. So these aren't the sharpest pictures.

Don't touch me!


Still cheesin' but best buddies.

He eats Raisin Bran?

Now this is the man that gets nausea at even the mention of vegetables. He once said, back when Fear Factor was on tv, that he could not eat a banana for $50,000. Now come on! But he eats Raisin Bran?!

Oh, but wait!! There is my full sugar canister! Never mind! That defeats all the healthful reasons to eat Raisin Bran!

Anyway, how do you like his sweatshirt? Here's the back of it.

I came up with the idea, and put it all together. Matt made sure that it still looked like a Kenworth in the end. He was really worried about that. If you don't understand why he was worried, I guess it's kind of like the whole Chevy-man, Ford-man thing. I mean, I still don't really understand the Chevy-man, Ford-man thing either, heck I'm still trying to understand the man thing.

A little ray of hope & some fun pics

You can read this...

But we all know you can't always trust the news. But maybe, just maybe, MoreyGirl might be able to continue selling baby items after February! We will see:)

On to more fun things. My baby Bo is going to be two in a couple of weeks. Another party. Didn't we just get done with parties?:) Oh well. Look at him last year right after his first birthday.

Now look at him. There's a mouth full of Christmas cookies there.

Speaking of Christmas cookies, Mom and all of my sisters got together to bake some this year. I think that's the first time all of us have done that for quite awhile:)
