Letters to Santa frames

I found this fabulous idea over here on Char's blog. (Love her!)

Started with a couple of these...1/2 price at Hobby Lobby of course

Why exactly does this need to be attached to the frame?  oh, sorry, easily distracted...

A little help from my trusty Cricut...(I hope she hasn't heard me talking about trading her in for a Silhouette!)


The boys are going to leave these on the table by Santa's cookies with a little note to him.  Something we do every year.  Santa leaves a note for us too, cause he's a sweetie like that.

What's happening...

Check out what I'm working on...Thank you cards for a sweet little girls 1st birthday party.

I'm also working on building up my albums on my Facebook page so if you aren't a fan on that page, what are you waiting for???

Facebook fan page

I've set up a page on Facebook to sell my cards and crafts.  I don't know what the hell I'm doing (on Facebook that is) because I can't figure any of it out.  And it's connected to my personal page with confuses me on a whole other level.  I'm trying to add a "Like" box to my blog here and of course Facebook picks the one night I'm actually trying to do something on there to suck, hard.  I thought the direct link to my page was www.facebook.com/naomisnest but for some reason that is saying page not found.  If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on what I'm doing wrong I'm all ears.  Please.  PLEASE! 


And if that's not frustrating enough, I can't pass Level 5-21 on Angry Birds to save my life.

Update:  I learned that you have to have 25 fans before you can pick your username.  Why couldn't FB have just told me that when I was trying to set it up?!?

So I set up an Etsy shop for my cards and crafts and such. 


Don't laugh because there is only one thing listed.  I'm working on more and last night was full of Glee so I didn't get online.  And while I'm here, a special card I've been working on, by request.  Congratulations, baby girl, pink, brown, elephants were the keywords.

From girly to boyish?

I need some help.  My Mom is giving us this old furniture because Logan needs some furniture in his room.  It looks pretty feminine and obviously it's going to be used in a boy's room.  Any ideas for ways to man up this furniture?  I was thinking of maybe cutting the spools off the bed frame...but the dressers I'm at a total loss.  I'm not even sure we will use the vanity looking one, but we could use that tall dresser. 

Oh, and his bedding is blue, black and lime green stripes/solids. (think Ben 10)

Or should I just put it all on Craigslist and start looking for something more boyish?

Tonight I am packing my craft bags and heading to my Mom's house for some much needed girl time and crafty goodness.  I have an large extra bedroom in my house that is my craft room.  I have a ton of stuff that I barely find time to mess with most of the time.  I have packed up the necessities (really, I had to condense it to 4 bags) and I'm hoping to get some stuff made to send with a friend when she does a craft show in November.
my bags
And I just finished these coasters, so next week I'm hoping to put up some more posts of some things I got finished at this party.  Be on the lookout!

Jackson, the beginning of baseball

This weekend my baby, my 3 year old, has his first baseball game. Mike is coaching his team. It’s interesting because we’ve been involved in the league since Logan started Tball 5 years ago. But we’ve never had our own team. And Tball-ers at that! They are definitely not known for their long attention spans.

At our first practice, 5 minutes into the warm up time we had a couple kids asking if it was time to go home yet. After a little while I think they got into it and had fun. Jack, of course, being the well mannered and obedient child he always is just ran around doing his own thing half the time. Oh well, sometimes you have to pick your battles huh?

Jack needs a little help on his throwing form...I think he's been watching too much Major League pitching because he thinks that's the only way to throw the ball.

We really need more practice this week but with Tropical Storm Hermine hitting us it looks like that might not happen.  Saturday should be interesting.  Pics to come soon!

My little reader

This weekend Logan wanted to go to the bookstore.  This is the kid I had to bribe last year to read enough to fill up his reading log for school.  So of course we went to the bookstore.  This is what he picked out.  And this is him reading...
He read most of the day...and is over halfway done with the book.  I really love that he found something he loves to read.  I love to read for fun and I hope this is the start of him loving it too.

The long weekend gets even longer...

Mike and I both had a 3 day weekend, which hardly ever happens, so we packed as much into it as we could.  It kind of started Thursday night, when my BFF got us free last minute tickets to the Texans game.  We were close.  This is a pic from our seats, with no zoom.

Then, on Saturday, we celebrated my nephew's first birthday with a party at his house.  The boys absolutely LOVE going over to Aunt LaLa's.  They are staying with her while we are on our cruise in November and every day Logan asks me if it's November yet.  Here's the birthday boy taking a whack at the pinata with the help of Uncle Mike.
And Jack getting in some extra batting practice...
Mike playing with the big kids...

Sunday afternoon we all went over to Mom's for some swimming and BBQing...we had fajitas and all the fixins.  The boys stayed with Mom and Dad Sunday night because we were going to a friend's going away party.  Kim, I am going to miss you sooo much!  The rodeo won't be the same without you...(she's the shorty, 2nd from the left)

When we got to the karaoke bar where her going away party was at, I was telling Mike in the car how much I wished Laura was gonna be there because I hadn't seen her in forever.  And guess who practically attacked me when I walked in the door!  Laura!  She is the blonde in the pic next to me.  It was so good to see her and catch up.  We stayed there for a while and then we went to Big Texas to get some dancing in.  And Ladies and Gentlemen, I met my first online blog friend in real life.  Hattie's blog is one of the first I added to my reader and a fellow Mom to boys (she's got me way beat though, she has 4!).  I recognized her when I first saw her fly past me to groove on the dance floor.  It was really neat to meet someone that I feel like I know just from what she writes on her blog.

When we picked up the boys the next day, we found out Jack had gotten sick at Mom's...in the middle of the night and all over her and her bed.  eww.  Sorry Mom.  And then last night Logan was up all night puking.  He stayed home from school today to recover and I got to spend some quality time with him watching Camp Rock 2...for the 20th time so far.  So along with the good comes the bad, but that's life right?

All in all, it was a pretty good run of days off. :)

Shakeology and Beachbody

Since the beginning of this year, I've started being very mindful of what I'm putting in my body. I'm trying to lose weight (aren't we all?) and just be healthier in general. I found a friend online who asked me if I wanted to make some extra money while working towards my goals. Sounds great right? So in May of this year, I joined Team BeachBody as an Independent Coach. I haven't really advertised what I've done because I felt like I should try out some of the products before I could really recommend them to anyone. I started with the Shakeology shakes.

The chocolate flavor is good! My favorite way to drink it is in a blender with 1/2 a cup of frozen cherries and a cup of almond milk. Delicious!! And just today I put half of my shakeology in the freezer while I worked out and when I took it out it was slushy frozen goodness. Everyday I find something new or some new way that I love this drink. You can have a shake as a meal replacement or as a snack during the day. The shake itself (mixed with water) is only 140 calories.

I usually drink a shakeology in the morning for my breakfast. I have more energy and just feel better when I start my day with these. I can definitely tell a different when I miss my shakes.

If you want to try a shake for yourself, I have single serving packets of chocolate available for $5 each. If you want to jump start your weight loss you can do a 3 day Shakeology cleanse for $45 (9 shakes total).

I decided to start working out with the Turbofire program. I have never been in LOVE with a workout like this. It is fun, high energy,with lots of great music to keep you motivated to move harder and faster. The workouts are between 15mins and 55 minutes. I wear a heart rate monitor to see how many calories I'm burning per workout. I am addicted to seeing that number go higher! (so far, I range between 400-1000 cals per workout!)

So I've lost about 5 pounds and about 6 inches since starting Shakeology and Turbofire. I took before pictures but I'm not at the point yet to where I'm brave enough to post them. Maybe one day, when I have after pictures I'll do that. :)

If you have any questions about any of the BeachBody products or programs please let me know. If you'd like to check things out you can go to my websites below.

Ike related ramblings...
Current mood: bummed

Let me just say that I can totally understand why those Galvestonians want to get back to their homes so desperately. We suffered absolutely nowhere near the damage they have and really none at all. We've been out of power since the storm...we've been staying with my parents since Thursday. Tuesday night, we went to check on the house and lo and behold...we had power. So all day I've just been thinking about getting home, cleaning up, getting on with our lives. And then after we spent 3 hours packing up or stuff at Mom's (hey, we have a lot of crap!) I get a call from Mike who made it home before us. Our power is out again. According to our neighbor, at around 12:30am this morning the transformer in front of our house blew a fuse and BURST into flames. He really said flames were shooting out of it. I just wanted to cry...did in fact. Logan too. I think I would be okay dealing with my own desperate need to be normal again but how do you explain to a 7 year old that we still can't go home. And how do you make him understand that we are the lucky ones because we still have each other and our home IS intact, and there are a lot of people without the simple necessities. All he wants to do is go home...and I do too.

Hurricane Ike

So the hurricane is over and people are slowly getting their lives back in order and under control. Our house was thankfully spared the brunt of the winds...we had some fence down in the back and a few big limbs thrown across our yard. We've been out of power since the storm and we just found out tonight that it's back on. We've been staying at my parents since Thursday and I love my parents and I know they wouldn't want us anywhere else but there is only so long 6, sometimes 7, people can cohabitat without going nuts. I'd like to say that I stayed up and "lived through" the storm but the truth is I slept through most of it, along with the boys thank goodness. Mike stayed up ALL NIGHT LONG to make sure the boys didn't wake up and get scared. He also went to work yesterday and worked an extra shift on his day off since I couldn't go to work and I'm not really sure how that is all going to work out. There are no words for how much I love him and everything he does for our family. Now, as I see all the pictures and listen and read all the reports of people who survived the storm and the buildings that did not...I'm really saddened by some of the things we have lost.

I know the water in Galveston is disgusting and that some people hate it...but just look at all the history that has now been washed away with the storm surge and thrown back to the land in a big pile of kindling. Just last month me, my mom, my aunts and my meemaw went to Galveston for a girls day. For my Meemaws birthday. She said she wanted to walk on the beach one more time before she was gone. We had a great day. We went shopping at some gift shops, ate at Guidos, drove by all the old beach houses we used to rent during the summers. But our day ran out before we walked on the beach. She said it was okay we'd just do it next year. And now, even if you forget about the fact that Murdoch's is gone and so many other historic places. How can you walk down the beach now and not think about all the destruction and pain?

This was really the first big storm in my lifetime, I was only 4 when Alicia hit. And I just can't hardly bare to see all the things that were lost and how the landscape of galveston, that I've known all my life, will never be the same.

I know all that stuff is material and what I should be focusing on is the fact that (the last time I checked) they found 60 SURVIVORS on Boliver! That in itself is a true miracle after seeing the pictures of what is left there. I think I'll try to focus on that when I think about the stuff we've lost.

Update:  My Meemaw suffered a stroke and heart attack a few months back.  She is slowly recovering and the only thing she lost with the stroke was a little mobility and her speech.  She's already talking much better than she did right after.  We are thankful for that.  And for her birthday this year (August) we are going back to Galveston and will walk on the beach and revisit the newly rebuilt Murdoch's pier.

The power of prayer...before and after
Current mood: blessed
Category: Life

Something happened this weekend that made me realize how powerful a prayer can be. Most people pray. Whether to God or some other being that your faith has you believe in. You pray for people who are sick or having a hard time. Sometimes you might pray for someone to change their life and open their heart. My Mother prays. She is a woman very strong in her faith and life has thrown a lot at her to build up her faith and make it stronger than she could possibly ever imagine. She has several prayer groups/circles online and in person and tons of people she has never met and continues to pray for. I guess now I see how much prayer can help someone before they even need it.

My brother was in an accident this weekend. He was hit by a trash truck. The entire passenger side of his truck was ripped off along with the roof of the cab. His truck is surely totalled and the only part of the truck not smashed and ripped apart is the drivers seat area where he was sitting. There was no passenger with him physically but there were definitely some angels holding him tight when that truck hit him. My brother doesn't go to church with us and I really don't even know if he prays at all...but my Mom prays for him.

So keep praying for the ones you love, the people on the news, the people you walk past everyday...everyone could use an extra prayer. You never know when it'll come in handy.

P.S.  This blog makes me cry all over again every time I read it.

Here's how you play: Once you've been tagged you have to write a blog with 10 weird random facts, habits, secrets, or goals about yourself, at the end choose 10 people to be tagged. List their name and why you tagged them. Don't forget to leave them a comment saying "You're It!" and to go read your blog. You can't tag the person who tagged you! So since you can't tag me back let me know when you are done so I can read your blog answers!

1. I've been told I have a really good singing voice, but the only people I will ever sing in front of or to are my sons.
2. I am currently in "crazy, mad, determined" mode to get my finances under control, including paying off my debt and destroying the evil credit cards.
3. My mom is one of my best friends.
4. I love my friends and I HATE to see them in relationships with shitty guys when I KNOW they deserve the best.
5. I'm still trying to talk Mike into having kid 3...I'll always want my little girl.
6. I'm a really bad nail biter.
7. I'm obsessed with email...I love getting email.
8. I like to put little notes in Logan's lunch kit. And I love it even more when he thinks it's cool.
9. I hope my boys grow up and are always as close as they are now.
10. I wish I was more outgoing around new people.

Ten people I'm tagging to do this themselves...

Becky - cause she's a blogging fool
Robyn - because she never will
Tracey - so we'll have more stuff to laugh about on the way home.
Laura - because she never has time.
Jamie - cause she'll call me bitching about it.
Tristen - just cause I love her and miss her so much!
Nicole - cause we love our Aunt Cole
Lonnie - why not?
Kelli - cause she's so close but we hardly ever talk anymore!
Jennifer S. - because she's not busy enough with a newborn...lol

An update...
I'm still struggling with #2, and #5 is DEFINITELY ABSOLUTELY OUT THE WINDOW.  I'm done!

A few of my favorite things...
Current mood: blessed

In no particular order, my boys telling Santa what they want for Christmas. Me telling Logan he CANNOT ask Santa for money to buy a Wii. Christmas hayrides singing christmas carols and looking at christmas lights. Bundling up for the hayride because it's so cold. Jackson discovering stuff about Christmas for the first time. My dancing singing Santa Claus. Christmas card pictures. The angel my grandmother gave me. Hot cookies and baking for friends and family. Of course hearing the praises of how wonderful a chef I am! lol Beautiful Christmas lights and Logan being all excited when there is a word he can read in the yard...like Peace, Joy or Jesus. My grandmother's old Santa doll that always reminds me of Christmas when I was a little kid with all my family.

(pictures were inserted here)

And last but not least, our tree. There's no picture of it here but it's full of colored lights and ornaments from my grandmother's tree and from each year we've spent as a family. Logan's ornaments he makes at church. Little frames with pics of the boys every year. I think those trees in the store are beautiful, with all the matching ornaments and trimmings. But I think our tree is the most wonderful, nothing matches, some ornaments are handmade and some are so old they just sit on a branch because the hanger's too old. And most of all the nail that hangs in the back that is only for us, not for show. To remind us what the season is really about. Each thing on that tree reminds me of some memory that I might have forget during the year. And I can look back at Logan's first Christmas picture and be in amazement that the baby in that picture is now the most amazing kid in the world. A few years ago we bought some colored glass balls to fill up the tree and it makes me so happy each year when I can put less of those colored balls on and more of our memories.

Okay, I've got to stop now I'm getting all weepy.
Merry Christmas!!!

My favorite thing to do with my kiddos...
Current mood: excited
Category: Life

So I think one of the best parts about being a parent is getting to dress up your kids as cute little things. And of course I always love showing off how creative I can get with costumes and such. So I LOVE Halloween and I was so excited to dress the boys up as something cute that matched/went together. I had all these great ideas and I was so excited about them. But as they get older they get a little mind of their own and they won't let you dress them like you want to or get them little Halloween costumes with themes. So the moral of my story is dress them like you want when they are little and take lots of pictures to embarass them when they get into high school. One of the perks of having to go through labor.

This is the reason why poor Jack had to be a bat for his first Halloween...because Mr. Big Stuff just HAD to be a Vampire!

BTW, Logan has a Paper Bag Costume Parade at his school Wednesday for Halloween so I made him a costume using ONLY paper! I had to bribe him to get him to wear what I wanted to make...lol. Be on the lookout for the pics!! It's going to be the best costume in the school!!!!! And yes, I am WAY more excited about it than he is...

Here's his paper bag costume...

back from the MySpace graveyard...

The next few days I'll be reposting a few blogs from my MySpace page.  Yea, I said it...that's really the first place I started blogging at all and there are only a few.  I'm doing this before I delete the entire page.  I tried to delete it tonight and it asks you about 152 times if you are sure.  That last time I thought, wait, I need to save those blogs and keep them for posterity.  So here goes...reposted along with dates so we can all see what I was thinking oh so long ago...

Children are amazing...
Category: Life

We went to Parent Orientation at Logan's school last night. He's in first grade. Last year, at the end of Kindergarten, I was just amazed by the amount of stuff he learned and how much he had progressed. I mean he can read! It is so amazing to me how much their little minds absorb and how they can remember stuff and learn new things. It just reminds me that he's not a baby anymore, he's a little person. He's so imaginative and he just says things all the time that are so off the wall. So grown up and you think, "where in the world does he learn that stuff?" So last night when his teacher was going over their curriculum and what the kids are expected to know by mid year and at the end of the year. I was just blown away by the fact that my kid will be that much smarter in 9 months. I can't believe he's grown up so fast. Now with Jack doing so much too I just think that it feels like just yesterday Logan was learning to walk and talk. Now he's learning to read and add and tell time and count money. Oh man. Kids are truly a gift from God to show us the simpler things in life.

I really think now that Teachers have the best job in the world (besides Moms) and I just want to thank all the teachers out there for using their skills and talents to shape our little one's minds.

P.S.  My son Logan, the subject of this entry, will be celebrating his 9th birthday next week and will be going into the 4th grade next Fall.  That time, she sure does fly.

My first t-shirt refashion

So I’m volunteering at the Pasadena Strawberry Festival this weekend. I was one of the last bunch to get our volunteer shirts so this is what I got.

That’s a really really big XL if you are wondering.

So I felt the need to do a little alterations. You should know that sewing has never been my favorite “crafty” thing to do. I feel the same way about sewing as I do about manual transmission cars. I know enough to keep myself out of a ditch…but it’s not my preferred mode of crafting/driving.

So I checked out some refashioning blogs yesterday to kind of get some ideas and here is what I did.

First, I found a shirt that fits me well. I used this as my pattern.

Sorry for the bad pictures, I started this at about 10:30 last night, I know, crazy...and they were taken by my husband.
Then I just started cutting…(BTW, I did this on a practice shirt first...learned A LOT of what NOT to do  that way)

I cut the sleeves off just on the inside of the seam…and I cut about an inch outside the yellow shirt to leave a little room for the seams.

And I cut the sleeves like this…

I also had to cut the sleeves along the seam and resew them smaller.

Onto the sewing…

All I had was black and white and other various color threads, none that were red so I just used black. I used a zig zag stitch so it would still stretch a little (learned that from a blog).

Once I got the sides and arms sewn back on the shirt was still long enough to be a dress (although a really skanky one)…I didn’t want to cut the bottom and mess with the hem…I was trying to K.I.S.S. (remember that from school?!). So I used a basting stitch on the sides and then pulled them some so they would gather and then sewed back over the gathered section to hold it. It’s a little wonky on one side still but really, I’m probably never gonna wear this shirt again.

It was fun trying something new though, I’ve always wanted to refashion a shirt into something cooler. Here’s the finished product.

Kale Chips

I've been trying to eat better.  More veggies (which I use to hate) and different new  (to me) foods.  I've been reading a lot of healthy eating blogs and I keep reading about Kale Chips.  What is Kale you ask? It's a type of cabbage.  But it's a dark leafy green...major goodness for you.  So I decided to pick some up at the store and try it myself.  Here's the video where I got the directions.

Here's my Kale.

Here it is cooking

It shrinks down a lot when it's cooked


I had high hopes for this I have to say.  I could really take it or leave it.  I can't see myself chowing down and mindlessly eating these like potato chips.  There were mixed reactions all around. 

Mike said it was alright.

Jackson said they were goood.

well, he gagged and spit it out in the trash.  He made the most awesome face that I couldn't catch on camera.  He said it was horrible.  lol

So I don't think this will be going in the family cookbook.  Now I've got to find something else to cook and use all this leftover fresh kale.

Reunion part II

Alright, on to the actual reunion.  The boys were SO PUMPED to go fishing.  They had seriously been talking about it all week. If you weren't around the blog this time last year take a peek at this post from last years reunion and Logan fishing.  My cousin Nicole and her new husband Jimbo came to the reunion this year too.  I think they enjoyed hanging out and meeting everyone.  Here's some pics from the weekend.

The boys walking from the Old House to Grandpa's trailer...

Aunt Susan helping Jack cast his line
Nicole and her big catch...
Jimbo and Jack in a serious conversation
cupcake decorating contest

They boys love it out there...the next week Jack asked if we were going back to the country.

Johnson Family Reunion

The first weekend in May, every year, we have a family reunion.  My Mom's side of the family.  My grandfather was born in this old house in Deadwood, TX.  The biggest city close to it is Carthage, TX if you are looking on a map.  This year my Mom and I drove up Friday morning just us girls so we could stop at all the junk shops and antique stores on the way.  When we ride with the boys they won't let us stop.We got lots of "good" stuff.

This was at the first place we stopped...
Okay!  Thanks Dear!!

Here's some stuff we got...
Mom's bird...this is made from an old tire!
An old timecard holder, Mom's gonna use it to display some of the cards she makes...that's my Mom. :)
more stuff...

Here's some awesome stuff I saw, but didn't buy...I'm not made of money y'all!
This glass was a beautiful turquoise crystal color
Vaseline glass...it glows in black light.  Groovy huh?

This is going to be a two part post...cause we did a lot of stuff that weekend!  This was just on the way up there.

Mother's Day

I woke up yesterday morning with a little voice in my head.  I hear Logan whispering, "Dad, Dad, wake up.  It's Mother's day and we have to sign Mom's cards."  I just kind of smiled and pretending to be asleep.  I got up a few minutes later and Logan heard me and brought me the card they bought me.  It was one of those talking cards with the little pink and green guys on it.  They were singing a song that goes, You are so awesome and wonderful, even though we do bad things sometimes we know you still love us.  Then they say they are gonna bake me a cake, and you hear a big boom...then they say, maybe we'll just go out for ice cream.  Logan was cracking up laughing when I read it, and he said, "that's my favorite part, when they blow up the cake."  And he signed his name, Jack's name and Dad.(cause you know he wouldn't wake up)

Then he tried to bring me a card from Mike and I told him to wait and let Dad give me that one.  Turns out he went ahead and signed "Mike" on the inside and sealed it up.  lol

Then we went to church, my brother came and surprised my Mom. (He never goes to church with us) Then mexican food and ice cream. 

We came home and watched The Blind Side (even Logan sat and watched it, Jack fell asleep on the couch)

And then played baseball and played in the sprinkler.


I'm so glad these boys belong to me.
