talents? creativity? where art thou?

{i stole this image off the blog mentioned below}

i've decided i officially fail at a little thing called talent/creativity. i've always kind of felt this way but realized it with greater intensity when my friend showed me this blog that i am completely and totally obsessed/consumed with. she makes her daughter's clothes (whose daughters are in and of themselves beautiful) and they are the cutest most trendiest little outfits i've ever seen. i want them in my size. i've learned through reading this blog that i am seriously skill-less. i need some skills. i'm determined to have some skills. it may take some time... and some serious work and patience on my part but i am going to make it happen. one step at a time. here we go...

I hear you--I think having a child (especially a daughter, since they are SO fun to dress up!) makes you want to be extra creative, even if you're not...at all...like me. :( Sad. That's definitely been the case for me. I see all these other moms who make THE CUTEST stuff for their kids, and I'm just like Uh...is that required? I want to be a good mom but, like you said (although I'm sure it's not true for you) I HAVE NO SKILLS.

Ok, self-pity session over. I have a beautiful daughter, and even if I can't make cute stuff to dress her in, I can buy it at least, right? :) haha Anyway, yah, we're heading back home again for the entire month of July and we'll be in Deep Creek for a couple weeks, I think around the 4th of July till like the 11th, and then maybe back again for another week on the 13th. My little sister and nephew are getting baptized on the 12th, so we have to head home for that, but we're hoping to just drive straight back to the lake that night or the next day. What about you guys? What are your plans? It'd be fun to see you, if you're around at the same time. Oh but wait, can you even fly still? I can't believe how close you're getting!!! I'm way excited for you shower next week.

I seriously can't believe how nice your comment on my last post was! YOU are 1 of the most gorgeous people who I have always thought, I would give almost ANYTHING to look like her. (you're right up there with Jennifer Anniston!) So thank you so much for your words. And I can't wait to be mom's together! Enjoy the basketball belly if you can... it's something us "infertiles" never get to experience. YOu ARE SO CUTE AND PREGO! See you at the baby shower!!!!
