more sewing

I was busy sewing feverishly last week before we left for WI.  I upcycled one of Matt’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu shirts & made it into a long sleeved-T for Link.   It turned out way more awesome than I thought.  I didn’t imagine the giant logo on the front of a grown man’s t-shirt would look […]

I was busy sewing feverishly last week before we left for WI.  I upcycled one of Matt’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu shirts & made it into a long sleeved-T for Link.   It turned out way more awesome than I thought.  I didn’t imagine the giant logo on the front of a grown man’s t-shirt would look good taking up an entire 1 year old’s shirt, but it’s cute.

Unfortunately, the first time I tried it on him, the neck hole was to small to get over his 97th percentile head.  I cut the neck bigger (and in turn, sort of botched it, but made up for it) only to realize that it’s to short (almost) for my giant headed long torso’d offspring.  It’s a total bummer, because he looks like a stud in it!

I also made a car wallet for our plane trip.  It turned out cute & Link enjoyed driving his cars on the road & through the grass.

This past Saturday, Matt & I went with our friends Carrie & Eric to the Monster Truck Rally in Greeley, CO.

The tires were taller than me.

We saw a lot of this:

this

and this

There were also some mishaps

 

The amateur’s had a showing

 

The amateur broke his axle – oops!

Can someone tell me what the difference between a “Wrangler” and “Security” is?

I got a little disappointed when I found out they weren’t going to use the big jump in the middle of the course.

And just an FYI on the back stage rules (to the rodeo)…

Did that just happen?

March 23rd, 2011

Picture this – I’m at work, being a worker bee. My phone rings, and its a local number, but one I don’t recognize. Normally I wouldn’t answer & wait for them to leave a voicemail, but I must have been feeling crazy… Me: hello this is Catie Woman: Hi…this is (I forget)…do you know Jenny […]

Picture this – I’m at work, being a worker bee. My phone rings, and its a local number, but one I don’t recognize. Normally I wouldn’t answer & wait for them to leave a voicemail, but I must have been feeling crazy…

Me: hello this is Catie
Woman: Hi…this is (I forget)…do you know Jenny Christophy?
Me: I’m sorry, I didn’t catch the name
Woman: Jenny Christophy”…well at least I thought she said Christophy, it was hard to understand
Me: no, I’m sorry, I don’t
Woman: “oh…ok…thanks

I then IM Matt, puzzled, and said “do we know any Jenny’s?” and he said “umm….what about the girl you worked with at the cookie company?”. And then I panicked. i DID work with a Jen at the cookie company. And I know she’s looking for a job, maybe she used me as a reference? And now I blew it! So I call the lady back.

Woman: hello?
Me: Hi, this is Catie Williams calling, you just called me. I think I misunderstood you, did you say Jenny Sophy (the name as been changed to protect the innocent)?
Woman: No, I said Kenny.
Me (slightly embarrassed): Oh, sorry, I thought you said Jenny. My friend Jenny is looking for a job and I thought maybe you were a reference calling, and, well, I didn’t want to blow it for her.
Woman (insert tears): No, I’m so sorry to bother you, but, its just that my boyfriend, Kenny, we’ve been dating a long time, and he’s been acting weird lately. I was looking through his phone and saw your number was called a lot. And we were planning on getting engaged, and now I think he’s cheating.
Me: Oh! Sorry. That’s terrible. I hope everything works out. But again, I dont’ know any Kenny’s.
Woman: I just don’t know what to do…
Me: Come to think of it, i did get about 5 phone calls from a random number a few weeks ago. They never left a message and when I did pick up, didn’t answer. Maybe he kept dialing the wrong number & you have nothing to worry about.
Woman: Thanks…
Me: No problem.

WHA????? It made me chuckle, but I felt terrible for her. But kudos for having the balls to call a stranger & ask.

Matt & I had an uneventful New Years.  We spent the day traveling back to WI and then last night at The Murphy’s.  It was our friend Tracy’s birthday….HAPPY 30TH!

2011 came in with a cold snap here in Denver.  We had a wind chill advisory this morning.  BRRR its cold.  Thankfully, tomorrow will be back in the 40’s.  I can deal with that.

We are excited for 2011.  2010 had its ups & downs and aside from our wedding and a few trips, it wasn’t all spectacular.  But, the most important part, is through it all, we’ve come out better, so I’ll give 2010 that!

**side note**  The Rose Bowl just came on….how does Paula Dean get selected to do the coin toss?
