Sidney's 2nd Birthday Party

This year Damon chose a Wonder Woman theme for Sid's birthday party. Here are some shots of my attempt to decorate.

Sidney was really excited to have all of her favorite people there to celebrate.

Things To Do

This year I'm primarily focused on school/education but there's more to life than a degree. And there's more to me than my job. (Although it doesn't feel like that most days!) So after I check off getting my BSN, here's my self-improvement list:

Learn to knit - I've been wanting to do this for a long time. I think it would be a relaxing and creative hobby. A little on the old lady side but I think it will go well with my old soul.

Learn to play the guitar - You never know when Santana will invite you to an impromptu jam session. Seriously, I have this vision of taking Sid on a picnic and playing the guitar like Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. Not a lot of hills in this part of the world but the wind is very much alive.

Learn to paint - Another thing that I've wanted to learn for a while. I like the look of oil and acrylics and will probably focus on that. I think it will be an expensive hobby with all of the supplies and lessons but there is always potential to create a masterpiece.

Learn to speak Spanish fluently - I can understand a little already but not enough to follow a conversation. Watching Dora the Explorer with Sidney has been helping. Hola Boots! If only I had a bilingual monkey to help me.....
