Every now and then I get a crafty bone in my body… and this summer I thought it would be really fun to make Peanut a bow to wear in her hair. I decided I wanted to make her a multi colored Korker Bow. So I thought I’d take pictures along the way to show you how I did it. Super simple!!
Ok so you’ll need to get:
- 3/8″ Grosgrain ribbon. I went with multi colored but you can do it all as one if you’d like.
- Wooden clothes pins or something to secure the ribbon when it goes in the oven
- Alligator Clips (or barrettes, whatever you plan on securing the bow to)
- Dowel Rods
- Hot Glue Gun
- Fray Stop (optional)
- Poptart Box (optional)
- Spray Starch (optional)
- Yarn, elastic cord or embroidery thread.

Me: I am now and it won’t hardly show me your responses. I just got this Monday though. I did have a Pantec Duo.
Him: LOL. Sorry for your troubles… LOL. Are you using the facebook App or Safari Internet?
Me: I was using the facebook app. sounds like you know about iPhones… In that case does that mean you have one and if so… that would mean you were AT&T right? I could be completely assuming all of this though… but if you have AT&T and you had unlimited texting… that would be so much easier. I don’t think my iPhone wants us to talk… it lets me see everyone’s message they send me through here… geez…
Me: and if not, I guess I’ll use the dial up internet at the house… it’ll make my desktop feel loved. I bought a laptop last Thursday night and I can hardly stay off of it but it isn’t hooked up to the internet unless I’m at a friend’s house.
Him: my number is……
Finally my brain came back and I answered the phone.
“Hey! I didn’t think you were going to answer… I was beginning to wonder.”
“Oh yeah, I had to find my phone.” Duh Nicole that was dumb… you had the dumb thing in your hand, you texted him your cell number…. bright!
“Ah! Well I just figured this would be easier than texting, a lot faster too.”
“Oh definitely!” Yup, I’m full of clever words. It finally went somewhere more than just the pleasantries.

Me: Nope, and I’m not even sitting at a computer… I’m watching off the phone internet… LOL
Him: LOL I see!!
Me: Although I was actually on a comp earlier when I found you. Gotta love modern technology.
Him: LOL I was on my phone when I got the first message from facebook… LOL
That must be when my exhaustion took over and I fell asleep.

So from Thursday to Sunday, there really wasn’t anything new that had happened. Still fighting through text messages and on the phone with very very very little phone contact. I went out to dinners with my parents and hung out with my dad all day Saturday and Sunday helping with odds and ends around the house. Saturday night I wound up going to the movies with Kalem & Evelyn just to get out of the house. I needed to. I was going nuts. Oddly enough, I’m not sure I spent that much time there in one sitting. Sunday morning felt weird b/c I didn’t jump out of bed, get dressed and head to his house or his church or anywhere for that matter. I got up from what little sleep I had and watched Friends re-runs and then went downstairs and watched some movie with my parents.
A year and a half ago Hubby and I ate at this restaurant in Miller, MO called Marshiano’s Olde Time Pizza for the first time. (read the first post here) I’m telling you this pizza is awesome and totally worth the drive. If it was in a bigger city they’d have a waiting line to get in, no joke! We asked my parents if they’d like to come meet us for dinner.
We got there before them so we ordered so that when they showed up the food would be ready. We couldn’t have timed that any better either. We got 2 orderes of Fried Green Beans, one regular and one spicy (not all that spicy though!). Chicken Alfredo pizza and a Meat Lovers Pizza. Hello YUM!
Do you remember where you were 13 years ago? Holy cow, is it really 13 years ago? It is crazy how time moves on after tragic events that happen. People heal, people move on, but we never forget.
I know where I was. I still remember hearing Tom Brokaw’s voice and that feeling of, you don’t hear him in the mornings unless something is happening bad. I remember walking into Jess’s room and sitting on her bed and looking at the tv just as the 2nd tower was being hit live. Then the emotions that everyone went through. We may be located in the middle of the US, a few plane rides away, but that doesn’t mean we weren’t affected too.
In high school I was in band, I got out before my senior year of high school because I was lazy. The band teacher tried to talk me into staying in and he’d help me get a full ride scholarship to a university. Had I gone to SMS in band like he tried to talk me in to, the SMS band actually marched in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in November of 2001. I always wanted to go and see the Twin towers but I never got the chance… but I missed out on a second chance of going in November of 2001. I have mixed emotions on that as well…
As a graduation present from college my mom and I went and spent a week in NYC in 2005. One of the destinations I had on our agenda was to go where the twin towers stood. So here are the pictures I took of that area… obviously not all of them because if any of you know me I have a ton! I just got started into digital (plus I had a film camera then) so it made it easy to take an extreme amount of photos…
As I write this post I”m watching CMT’s Throw Back Thursday. It’s crazy to hear all the songs that came out due to 9-11-01. It is also a very surreal feeling that both of my kids will only know 9/11 because of history books. 1-2-03 and 6-26-14.
