My Weekend WrapUp - YUMMommy

My Weekend WrapUp

BAM!  It's October!  Can you all believe it?  I sort of can because the calendar says so, but a part of me still feeling like where did this year go?  I haven't a clue but I'm not complaining.  The fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  

I have my birthday, Moo's birthday, the Mr's Birthday, my sister's birthday, Thanksgiving and Christmas to look forward to.  Not to mention the upcoming Presidential Election.  And I'm even more excited this year because it's my baby sister's first year being able to vote!!!  Knowing my mom she'll probably be capturing the whole moment in photos.  Anyways, how was everyone's weekend?

This weekend was a special weekend for me and my husband.  We celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary on Sunday!!  We kept it low-key.  I'm happy to report that he really liked his gift.  It was comic book related.  We're really big on Marvel and DC over here.

I got to sleep in until almost 11 AM.  That was a great gift itself because I needed that rest after having had a rough night with JJ.  He also got me a lovely red clutch wallet.  I love it because it matches my favorite red purse from Aldo's.  I had a matching red wallet to go with the purse already put thanks to all my store cards, receipts and just plain old usage it had a few tears in lining.  My money was starting to do disappearing acts. So, it was time for a new wallet.

Can't believe I almost forgot, but I did get an early anniversary present from the Mr.  Remember, that post I did a while back on wanting an iPhone?  Well, looks like I'll be leaving Team Droid in a few days to join Team iPhone!!  I love my EVO, but I'm super excited to see what all the hype is about with these iPhones.  We decided to get the 4S since I heard that 5 has some kinks to get worked out like the screen bleeds and some of the apps malfunction.  Either way, I can't wait for that baby to get delivered.  (Yea, iPhones stay sold out around these parts.)

Overall, it was a great day.  The best part was just being with my family and celebrating the commitment my husband and I made to each other before God, the minister and our witnesses. (We eloped for the newbies.)    I was glad the kids celebrated with us.  Moo asked a lot of questions about why we exchanged gifts and I had the chance to explain to her the whole significance of anniversaries and marriage.  I tried to put it in a way she would understand.  I think she got it but if not she'll see us celebrate our wedding anniversary for years to come and get it when she's older.

A Scarf for Moo


I also did a lot of crocheting over the weekend.  I had been giving some thought to starting up a little Etsy shop or something similar on my own.  I know I don't talk about it much here on the blog, but I really like to craft.  Crocheting, cross-stitching and all that jazz is right now my alley.  It's relaxing, helps me focus and it's really good exercise for your hand.

After much thought, I decided to give it a shot.  What's to lose really?  Plus, how many scarves and blankets do Moo and JJ need?  I can't possibly keep everything I make.   And on top of that I've been thinking about trying to find a way to incorporate more charity work or opportunities into YUMMommy.  So, I'd love to take a portion of my profits to maybe sponsor a child for Christmas this year and then with future profits look into getting the ball rolling on converting YUMMommy into a nonprofit.

I'm still working on building up inventory and getting pictures ready to upload but here's a look at the banner for my shop and I've set up a Facebook page. 


Anything interesting happen to you this weekend?

    1. I probably would have gone with another Droid if the Mr hadn't gotten the iPhone but I'll give it a try and see if the hype is worth it.

    1. It is an awesome hobby. Very relaxing. I taught myself using some of my mom's old Country Living Holiday books from like the 80s.
