To BLOG or not to BLOG.. Was that a question??

I haven't blogged in so long I had to resend my password! Lets start with what has been happening since Novemeber!
1- I got a new job. My life now consisit of the following things:

AHH the crackberry.. As much as it is painstaking to have you attached to my ear, hip or at the bottom of my giant purse.. you make my life SO much easier.

OH the gantt chart- you are the bane of my existence right now. I will master you sooner rather than later, but at this moment in time you kind of make my want to vomit.

I started the new job the week of Christmas which was a pretty good time to make a change.. a slow time that is perfect for learning.  We went to AZ for Christmas and It was a great time.. I got every single thing on my list! This is always a plus!

My Vera Bradley Computer bag

 My Serger! & my Silhoutte! Please take note of the craft section I have set up!!
Here are some of the things I have made..

Razorback Burp cloths

Razorback taggie blanket

Rag Quilt

LOOVE the way this one turned out!
It was a GIANT pain! Totally worth it, but a pain. You have to cut every singe one of the square.. the instructions say to get spring scissors.. I scoffed at this.. Probably shouldn't have cause my hands were numb for 2 days!!

This is the non rag side

I went and got 3 fat quarter bundles from Hancock fabrics. I love the color combinations. Alexis and HSC don't know what they are having yet so I tried to make it a dual gender quilt.
My sweet friend Amy is due in Feb so this weekend I am going to get more fabric to make baby Bryson one!
I think I am going to start selling them on Etsy. I saw one for 100 bucks.. YO!

LOVE how this apron turned out.
No clue who I will give it to, but I guess this can go in to my etsy pile.

This is next on my list.. I really want to learn to make a tshirt quilt. Oh how I need more time!

Other things.. I know that you all know how OCD I am about my water..
I now have a filtered water dispenser!! I love that I can fill my water bottle up ALL the time!
I also have a cafe. Full of an oatmeal bar, omelet bar. & coffee bar!
So my first week I join the gym.. YEAH! with the 10 degree weather these days we had a small motivation issue when it came to running! Anyway 3 days in to the new job I forgot my badge. UM HUGE NO NO!! it is like the Secret Service when it comes to getting in and if you have no badge you are out of luck. So, I walk up to security and I am like, "HI! my name is cortney & i forgot my badge." Cue my big smile..
CIA- "Do you have your discount card?"
me- "No sir, I don't I haven't gotten it yet. I am new and I just started..(cue big smile again) and I am still trying to get use to everything.."
CIA- "Sorry you have to have that.. What is your name?"
Me-"cortney Carlson"
CIA- "nope. don't see you."
Me- "there is no U in cortney."
CIA- " OK.. I got that."
ME- "oh, well right there you are typing a U in it.."
CIA-" Well i still can't find you, Since I don't see you.. you have to have your manager come get you.
Me- "Sir, it is 715 they don't come in until at least 730.. maybe 8"
CIA-Well I have to have someone vouch for you"
Me- "Sir, I really don't know if there is anyone here..
15-20 MINUTES later.. we find some one that will vouch for me and they let me in!!
So I go to warm up my oatmeal and right as I take it out of the microwave I spill it all over the floor.
FABULOUS! Hi, I am the new clumsy girl!
So I go back to my desk to grab $$ so I can get some food.
I grab some biscuits and gravy and spill the gravy on my shirt.
SERIOUSLY?  This is my day?

Other things--
I got a hair cut. One that requires me to fix my hair now.. SO far we are going ok with it.
Please ignore the clothes on the tub.. That is what I miss soo much is an on site dry cleaning service... anyway it was dry cleaning day so disregard.
Me, My SIL & my MIL all won 3rd in our age group in a 5k on thanksgiving day!

I am trying to get better in the blogging..
Side note-- I got the numbers in on Voyage-- My auction raised about 15k!!
Have a fabulous weekend!!
