Am I the only brat?

Here follows a confession followed by overly mushy crap. You have been warned.

So, I woke up this morning toooootally on the wrong side of the bed. Just a bland mass of simmering rage. After my shower (where I forgot to unwrap my new all-natural soap that smells like breakfast) I had to pick out something to wear, and that's where it just got bad.

I gained some weight about 1-2 years ago. About 30 pounds of weight actually. Well I lost it again (and then some!) pretty quickly last summer and have had no trouble keeping it off. BUT most of my clothes just don't fit right. Sometimes this makes for a cranky Bre in the morning. I have bought some new clothes, but I still can't find jeans that fit, and old favorites now look like poo. So this took my simmering rage, and turned it up to full boil. I was being a major, huffy, BRAT. So I was grumping around this morning, left in a huff, proceeded to insult at my car who's windshield wipers broke again (mechanic guy who apparently didn't fix them right, you'll be hearing from me!), etc. It was not a mood I would recommend for any young lady with a shred of dignity.

Well, all the time that I'm in this funk and behaving like I'm 4, Brian is just being sweet as ever. And when I got to work, he had posted this video on my facebook:

I had to run to the bathroom because the sweetness of it all made me tear up. Even when I'm undeserving of it, he's the best. Yes I called him to let him know that.

My mood being in much better shape, I've been thinking about how lucky I am. We haven't gotten to spend any time together lately because of work schedules, and that has been draining. But he's still as wonderful as ever, no matter what I do, which I don't deserve.

A little Up-North is good for the soul!

So we trekked on up to my grandparent's house in Leelenau County this past weekend. I've been going there my whole life, and I never get tired of it. There's something about those clean woods, fox kits, and the waves that really does wonders for your state of mind. Also, seeing my totally amazing grandparents isn't too bad either! We spent lots of time around the fire, grandpa playing taps at sunset, and played games. Thanks G+G for a wonderful weekend at Windsong!

The backyard. See Lake Michigan out there?

UGgghh! Bad timing!

Do you ever have an idea for a project or something you want to do, but it's just about THE WORST possible time? This just happened to me. I have a fabulous idea for a new quilt. And I still haven't finished my other sewing project. Or my final. Or a bunch of house stuff (I'm looking at you boxes of vinyl fencing in the garage!). Also being broke from car repairs throws a wrench in as well.

I hope when I finally get to this ambiguous mystery quilt I'm as excited about it as I am right now.

Taking a Break from a Break

So DSIFQ has been fairly busy this past month! We're both finishing up a spring semester of higher education, in 2 weeks we get the whole summer off! We also have been planning our first REAL vacation for later this summer, I've been sewing a lot, we've had a slew of house guests, I got older, and we've spent a plethora of time in the backyard grilling and just enjoying it!

Sometimes life does just fly right by, but when it's not always a bad thing!
