Thankful Thursday

4 Oct

Thursday is becoming my favorite day of the week.  It’s a time of reflection. A time to stop stressing out that the laundry hasn’t been put up or our boxes aren’t all unpacked.  A time to look at my fiance and smile because he contributes so greatly to this wonderful life I live.

Baby Update: Prodromal labor is still happening, and yet she is still baking.  Because of this I am still not working, which is an unmarked territory to me.  Relaxation has NEVER been my forte.  When I was in grade school my parents had me in tap, jazz, ballet, hip-hop, cheerleading, and gymnastics at the same time.  That’s right 6 days a week of after school activities (and all A’s on the report card).  During high school my activity list may have gotten smaller, but the time required to participate only increased.  At 15 I was a full time high school student, full time college student, and cheer captain.  My day started at 6 am and my last class ended at 10 pm with no breaks in between.  I have a disease called over-achievement, and obviously baby Tiffany is very aware and is working on the cure as we speak.  Since I’ve been unable to go to work I have been able to come up with new ideas for BraggAbout Creations, work on new patterns, get reacquainted with my sewing machine, exchange foot rubs with my fiance (don’t tell anyone but I’m also teaching him how to sew).  It has been lovely.  Granted, I should probably be unpacking more but whats a few boxes scattered around my house?  The important stuff is out and working.  This experience has been a welcome break from the world of engineers, deadlines, scientific journals, and schedules.  (Side note: I’ve woken up past noon every day this week)

BraggAbout Creating Gift Bags
Note: My fiance broke out the paint brushes and did some fancy work on my nails.

BraggAbout Update:  We now have a facebook page!  I may get around to getting new pictures done, but schedules are for the birds.  I’ve finished knitting a chunky infinity scarf just in time for the fall, and we are planning on making some really amazing new products in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  The most exciting part of all of this is that I’m not just sitting down to create.  I have time now, and while my body may ache, I am not exhausted.  We take evening strolls to the park and discuss our ideas and look around to get INSPIRED.  I was anxious about moving out of downtown.  I mean, what would our lives be without being woken up by the drunken hoards of people walking back home at 2 am?  How would we sleep without sirens at all hours?  More importantly how would we feel when we walked into our yard and could see stars?  Gasp.  This country girl, turned city girl, turned suburban mama could not be more pleased with that decision!  WE HAVE ROOM!  We have the ability to WALK to the park.  We don’t hear our neighbors every time they flush the toilet.  Most importantly our family, our business, and our ideas have room to spread out and grow.  It is what I like to call heaven.

I’m ready to hear about the happenings of the rest of the world.  What are you thankful for?  Does October mean anything special to you or your business?  If you’d like to join me in Thankful Thursdays head on over to Mustache Mama.

      Thank you Heidi! Hope you are digging the things that are up on the FB page, we will be adding the good stuff soon, it’s just a little difficult to photograph. My fiance has gotten some serious brownie points with the nails. It makes knitting and sewing so much more fun when I’m looking at a skull =)
