Whatever happened...

I decided that it's about time for an update post!  I have mentioned a few things on this blog that I thought could use a follow-up.


I made this post about a year ago about how I needed a hobby.  I am happy to say that I have attempted all three hobbies that I mentioned.  I have made a few cakes, one of which I made my own fondant to decorate with.

I have also done a little digital scrapbooking but my blog designing has kind of taken over for now.

And, as for the photography hobby... I just purchased a Cannon Rebel XSI during Circuit City's going out of business sale.  I have been playing around with it a bit and can't wait to learn more about how on earth to use it.

Grey Hair:

You may remember when I found my first grey hair.  Luckily, I haven't spotted any others since that post.  (Knock on wood!)


It has been exactly 4 months since I used my last drop of Nioxin shampoo and conditioner.  I have to say that I am not a happy camper.  My Dove just isn't cutting it.  I have noticed a huge difference in the texture of my hair.  What used to be soft, shiney, silky and smooth is now brittle, dry and surrounded in fly aways.  I miss you Nioxin!  It's a good thing mother's day is coming up soon...


After admitting to my Diet Vanilla Pepsi I decided to end it.  I finished my last case of Diet Vanilla Pepsi two weeks ago from today and haven't had one since.  I do not plan on giving it up entirely (it is far too heavenly to do that) but I do not plan on having one every day either, or even every week for that matter.

I also haven't had any cookie dough for two weeks (CRAZY, I know).  I haven't done this intentionally... I just ran out of cookie dough and have had Girl Scout Cookies to get me through my drought.  I'm sure I will be making another batch once I run out of Thin Mints.

The Perfect Jean:

I am still on the quest for the perfect jean.  I appreciate everyone's suggestions and if you still have a suggestion for me... please help!  I have checked out Target, Down East (for Big Star), and a few places online.  I have found a couple I like and am just trying to narrow them down.  Don't worry, I will be sure to post the final decision!

My Blogger Design Business:

I am receiving orders pretty steady now, but I am still able to limit my working time to when my little guy is sleeping... it has been ideal!  I have some exciting things in store for the shop and can't wait to share them with everyone here pretty soon!

Be sure to let me know if I have missed anything.  I would be happy to update you on anything that I have mentioned in the past and failed to follow up on!
