Today, I am 28.  It's odd to think that I am 28.  I don't feel like I'm 28. I guess it's a good thing.

I made cupcakes to take to school today.  I would show you all a picture of what they looked like, but I forgot to get my camera out before I let all the dental assisting girls eat them.

I do have some pictures to share with you of the Christmas ornaments that I made.  Unfortunately I left the memory card at  home, so you will have to wait til tomorrow for that.  I think they turned out really nice, so I'm excited to share them with you.

Here's what I'm doing tonight:

It's homework.  Dental Charting to be specific.  These pictures(taken with my cell phone) prove that my Thanksgiving break is over.  It's kind of sad.  I was enjoying being with my husband during the day. Tomorrow is my first day back to school.  I don't have class til 12, so it will be an easy start to the week.

I made some new stuff for the shop today.  I have now have a bunch of new things that need to be listed, but I haven't gotten around to it.  I'm an excellent procrastinator.

What do you always put off doing?

Look up.  

Do you see what's in the left hand side of my banner?  Yup, it's a birthday cake.  But I'm not the only one getting treated this coming week.  Nope.  I have something for you too!!!   I'm giving you 28% (because I'm turning 28) off your entire order from my etsy shop!!!!  Just in time for Christmas too!  So shoo!  Go to my shop( ) and get your discount!  Enter 28BDAYWK at check out!   
I love Thanksgiving.  It has always been my favorite holiday.  And for good reason too.  Gifts.  No one stresses out about gifts on Thanksgiving.  It's about family, friends, food, and most of all, being thankful for what you have.  It isn't a time to dwell on the things you don't have. 

This  Thanksgiving, Paul and I went to his parent's house.  We went there last year too.  Paul's nephew, Jonathan, surprised everyone this year.  He had said that he wouldn't be able to come home and celebrate with the family,  but on Wednesday he came home and surprised his mom where she works.  It was good to see him.  
The best part of this year's Thanksgiving didn't even happen on the actual day, but rather today.  Paul and I gathered at his parent's house again today for a lunch of left overs.  While we were still seating ourselves and getting ready for prayer, Paul's dad announced that he felt very blessed today because for the first time in his life, he understood who Jesus is.  It was an announcement that brought him (and almost me) to tears.  He said that this year he truly had something to be thankful for.  I agree.

I've been debating on wether or not to sell house shoes in the shop.  I'm leaning towards no right now.  I think I need more practice on making them first.  I'm still getting the hang of them, so sometimes the size doesn't quite turn out right.  I can't sell  product if I'm not happy with it. 

In other news....  I have the day off work so I actually get to spend time with my hubby tonight. I'm excited :)

Blame it on Dental School

Okay, so I'm REALLY behind in blogging.  I blame school.  It is very time consuming.  But I guess not time consuming enough, because I opened up an etsy shop recently.  So, I think that a weekly post is in order now, even if just to track my etsy progress and the tips and tricks for the week.
