It's a HERO BAG! Ta-DAAA!;)
Today is my MIL's (mother in love) Birthday!! Happy Birthday :)
Ok, this is my version of the "Hero Bag" It is monogrammed, and the lining is made of part of Brian's cammies. Like I said before, it has many flaws as I am by no means great at sewing yet and I had to make my own pattern (excuses, excuses). I saw a lady at church that had one she bought online..I thought of my MIL instantly. One of my friends here helped me with the measurements...I wish it were better, but it is filled with love ok? :) Anyway, it is soon on its way to Brian's mom. In her honor, here are just 10 of the many things we love about her.

1. Her hugs
2. Her thoughtfulness
3. Her delicious BBQ and "Better than potato" salad
4. Her love for her grandchildren
5. The faithful prayers she lifts up for us
6. Her knack for decorating!
7. Her appreciation for beauty-such as in the Mojave Desert
8. Her love for a good card game (we love to play with them when we visit)
9. Her loyalty
10. She is a great listener
11. I love...How she raised a son that I am head over heels in love with oops that's 11- one to grow on I guess :) Happy Birthday Mom Yost, we love you very much

Heather, that was a very thoughtful gift. And I like the fact that you lined it with your husband's cammies. THat was a sweet idea. I'm sure she loved it.
