A simple Tuesday

During the summer's of the High Desert you have 2 choices. Either you stay inside until the sun goes down or you go to the pool and sweat it out! We have bouncing back and forth between those 2 options. I can't wait to be done with these place...only 3 more years! :{
I have been trying to sew more but it's just so hard when Brixton is awake. He pulls my machine off the table! The machine was ok, just a few bumps. He wants to sit on my lap, which is fine but he wants to touch the machine. He tries to pull the fabric when I'm trying to sew. Colby and I have been throwing the idea of moving my growing obsession upstairs to the spare bedroom. That way it would be out the way and my mess wouldn't spread through out the whole downstairs. I think it's a great idea, but I want to get rid of the spare bed. So I have TONS of room. But then what do we do when family comes to stay? It's not that often, but we like to have some where for them. So maybe the blow up mattress?? Is that mean? Another option is the pull out couch/bed. It sounds good but who wants to spend $600 bucks on one?
So in the mean time, I have completed a few little projects.

It's a super cute little bag. My sister uses hers for her scriptures.
This one is for Allie, my youngest sister.

It's for laptops but you can use it for whatever you want.

Oh this weather...

Well 29 Palms cannot make up it's mind when it comes to weather. One blazing morning its 107 before noon and the next day it's 89. Don't get me wrong, I can handle it. It's just trying to find things to do all day. Luckily we have great friends and on the day it was 107, we went over and swam in her pool. Brixton got to play with Shane and Steph and I got to talk.

Aren't they cute, found some shade and shared pretzels

It was nice, it makes me miss Hawaii. I loved being able to walk 10 minutes and be at the beach. I'm sure that Brixton would have loved it. He loves digging in the sand and playing in the water, we tried at Seal Beach in April. Was a little chilly so we didn't let him get in but we let him put his feet in.

I have been working really hard on my sewing projects. Mostly the ones I sell back home. They are just flowers but it gives me something to do and they extra money is nice too. I'll get my sisters to model them this weekend. My parents and 2 sisters are meeting in St. George for a Father's Day weekend bash!! It's going to be fun. We are planning to go swimming and do some fishing! My dad is also bringing his Rhino (for those of you who don't know what a Rhino is Google it. They are awesome). Brixton loves it!! It's like a 4-wheeler but better!
Depending on how this weekend goes, I might just go to St. George more often. I love St. George, I have been trying to think about where Colby and I will settle down at. So far Utah is our main focus, I would love some where like Seattle. (Dede knows what I'm talking about) I love the rain!!! It's just so awesome.
Hopefully I'll get my flowers done soon so I can share them.

I have fallen off the blogging wagon....

I was thinking that I would be good at blogging. But apparently I'm not. I thought that I would have some down time between Brix and my projects to share what I have done and keep my family up to date on what's going on with us.
This is going to be harder then I thouught...but I'm going to work on it. Some of you may have noticed that I'm bouncing between my blog setting and style. I have changed my setting so any on can read it, so family members can read and not have to log on.
As for the style... Like a dork I was looking at the "new" design for the blogs and I must have clicked on one not know it would change. So last night I spent about a half hour trying to change it back... I had to stop to put Brix to sleep. So hopefully I'll have it fixed by the end of week. (on my free time) hahaha
