I'm sorry...did you just say sexy?

I can't tell you how guilty I feel for not blogging yesterday! (Sorry Nancy if your day was all askew from my neglect!!) Wednesdays are just super busy for me, plus I was having internet problems in the wee hours of the AM.

After we returned home from my woman's bible study that I lead (please know that I use the word lead very loosely...basically, I unlock the church door and start the coffee), K-man called me to say the tags on his work vehicles expired...Tuesday. Well of course they did. He has a deadbeat secretary that goofs up a lot. Good thing she's sharin' a bed with him cause otherwise she'd be so outta here!

So, along with homeschooling Nick, taking him to golf practice AND trying to straighten up the house, I had an unplanned visit to the DMV to fit into my day. Super.

The DMV office and I just don't mix...every stinkin' time I go into that place, my patience is put to the test big time and I usually fail. *sigh* I always forget something that I need and I always have the attitude that it's the fault of the girl behind the desk (how dare she expect ME to abide by the rules....doesn't she know I'm LUCY'S mom?) But I was determined to be nice...no matter what. Whew. I had everything I needed and it went A-OK. That was a first.

Right next door was a fabric store. Never in my wildest dreams would I have guessed that my 14 year old son would request to go in and shop. This manly man (through and through) has been begging me to make him a rag quilt like Lucy's (but in MANLY colors & patterns of course). My BFF Angela made Lucy's quilt & Nick has been jealous of its softness for the longest time. So, in we went.

We had to pick out a host of flannel fabric, which wasn't easy. I had Nick take the six bolts that he decided on and carry them to the counter to be cut. As he was carrying them, he looked at me and said,

"Mom, this is gonna be one sexy quilt."
I'm sorry, did you just say sexy??


Here are a few of Nick's fabric picks for his "sexy" quilt.

Here we see Nick practicing his putting (which he did for THREE HOURS!) He also says that the new driver he just bought is sexy....I'm seeing a trend here. Perhaps his new-found adjective is the new awesome.
And we end with a picture of Lucy because well...she thinks she rules the world.

DMV + ME don't mix either. I seriously, almost moved back home after my trouble with them when I first moved here!!!!!

And the sexy thing is kinda odd, I've never heard of it, but then again, I'm like "so old" (according to my 7yr old cousin hannah)

Wow, from the sample of fabrics you showed, I am gonna have to say his quilt is going to be anything buy "sexy." LOL!
Seriously though, I think it is really cool that your 14 year old son wants to have you make him a quilt like his sister's.
Can't wait to see the finished product.

Brown the ground beef and drain off grease. Add tomato sauce, taco seasoning, and brown sugar. Simmer 10 minutes. Stir in sour cream. Serve immediately. YUM!!

I have the fabric laying around for several rag quilts. Maybe your post will motivate me to get them finished...well at least started! Nick is going to love his "sexy" quilt. To funny!

I think Lucy and Katie together could rule the world:) They could get away with just about anything with those adorable little faces. Yesterday I told Katie not to do something and she looked at me and said "I have to keep doing this for my FANS".

Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog. I do love those boys of mine. I used to think it was terrible when someone didn't have a a baby girl. Like they were missing something. That is until the Lord gave me two sweet little boys. Know I don't know what I would do without them.

Oh... sorry I had you craving tacos at 6;00 AM:)

We missed you yesterday. I hoped everything was okay. Glad you were just busy.

The "sexy man" quilt will be cool.

Lori, I have to ask...do you think my "car condom" is sexy??

:D

That is just too funny. I love it that you and your big boys have such a great relationship.
