11 Weeks Old and dolled up :)

11 Weeks Old and dolled up 🙂

Melody turned 11 weeks old today… isn’t she just a doll? She’s so happy and chatty now! She’s growing in so many ways everyday and it’s thrilling to be with her every second  to see her growing up.
Alas, they do grow to fast as people have been telling me!

Weekend Recap

Melody is all ready to go!

Melody is all ready to go!

Well, my weekend was good and as you can see above, Melody was enjoying it too! Saturday after my husband got off of work ( he works six days a week) we headed to the local farmer’s markets so as to get some yummy fruits and veggies! Peaches… are incredibly overpriced in Oregon but I am not surprised, they don’t grow them as abundantly as they do in Georgia, where I’m originally from. The peaches aren’t as quite as tasty either but they are still peaches and they satisfy my craving for them enough that is until I get to sink my teeth into a real Georgia Peach again!

We also had some friends over on Saturday and we were able to play some games ( Wii and a Board Game). That was fun 🙂 I think the Wii is a great gaming system where you can have a lot of fun! Boom Blox ( if you like puzzle games, you’ll find this enjoyable) is defiantly my favorite game on the Wii next to Mario Kart Racing!

Let’s not forget I’ve been keeping tabs on the Olympics too 🙂

I don’t know if I’ll be getting any new designs done today because Monday’s are usually the days that I respond to e-mails, finish any tasks that need doing, and decided what I will be doing this week. Today I’ve been printing photos, uploading videos, making more medical appointments, CMYKing a design I did for a client, and seeing to my daughter. So busy busy am I!

Olympics

Has anyone else been enjoying the olympics? I must say, I think that China has had the best opening show of all the olympic games! To me, the opening was truly a inspiring and moving piece of art!

Since I wasn’t at church this morning, I happened to catch the China vs USA basketball game! I believe it was the most watched basketball game in the history of basketball itself.  I also caught the mens swimming competition and saw the US Mens swim team set a record in the 400-meter relay and take home the Gold! We are doing great so far at the Olympics though currently China holds the most Gold but there’s so many more events to go! I look forward to seeing the Gymnastics as it’s one of my favorite events next to the swimming and track 🙂

You can find news about the Olympics HERE and there’s also a spiffy little scheduler that lets you know what events are being aired on TV when.
