This is really cute. I'm sure it looks very nice in person because you can see how the ears pop out in the picture.


D~ Great pictures from your trip to Cranfest. Glad you got to get away for a fun girls trip. Your shopping day sounds exhausting but your savings is amazing. Great start on the Disney savings.

Wow, this bag is gorgeous. I will not be showing this to Casey or she will be drooling. The exterior fabric is perfect, the tone on tone really creates a nice background for Lady

She says to keep up the fantastic work and she is looking forward to getting back on here.

Thank you.
Oh no, hope everything went well with the surgery. Good wishes for a speedy recovery.

D~ Great shots for TL, the one with the 3 of you girls is very nice. Glad you had a nice time and made the most of your WP&M ticket option.

And another Dismeet.

LOVE the new bag! So glad you had a wonderful time at Cranfest. Loved the little critters. I would live to do something like that. This past summer not too far from here the Country Living magazine had a craft fair here. I was unable to go but next year I am planning on going.
I have to day you have the best PP Pics! TL was our favorite and my DD spent most of her time in the lagoon. I on the other hand had an incident from the wave landing me in some old mans lap! I was done and rather embarrassed!!!
Have a fabulous day!!!

Good job for Alli trying to be a vegetarian.

It is so much easier now than it used to be. I was 11 when I decided I wanted to be a vegetarian, and was for 12 years. The reason that I went back to eating meat was because I convinced myself that I needed to lose weight and it was because I ate too many carbs. I regret making that decision to go back to eating meat, because it's more difficult now for me to make the decision to be one. It's just about educating yourself on it, and then knowing how to make the choices. And, there are many more products out there to supplement protein than there used to be 21 years ago when I made the change. It's just about keeping an open mind.

The jalapeno cheese pretzel at Animal Kingdom is yum yum yum!

I love Typhoon Lagoon! And why not if you had WPF&M. It's definitely my favorite of the two water parks. It's just so beautiful.

Whew! I had a lot of catching up to do...

We had a busy weekend, and a busy couple of days at work, so not much time to be on the computer.

I love the metal animals! They are so adorable.

I love, love, love the Lady bag. The tone-on-tone fabric is perfect. I agree that a busy print would not work for your bags, since the focus needs to be on the applique.

The Nemo show is wonderful. Charlie and I saw it this trip.

I'm still trying to get caught up on house and yard work, so I haven't been doing any sewing lately. I want to make hipster bags for my girls for Christmas presents, and I need to get started on them soon.

I gave up eating red meat years ago for about 2 years. It wasn't too hard because I still ate poultry and fish. Found I missed ham, of all things, and steak. I think if Allie educates herself on what she should eat, she should not have too hard of a time with being a vegetarian.

Hope all is well with you.

We really enjoyed the Nemo show (even Jeremy who was just over 2 during that trip). If I remember right we just happened across it. But didn't come across the Lion King show.


Fun that you ended up at the water park. Sounds like it was a relaxing time.

Ahhhh... finally caught up! We had done some travelling to NoCA for the Jazz Festival and I fell behind! Fantastic pics!

Sadly, I too wasn't all that impressed with DQ... if only they would do a serious update... that place could be spectacular again.

I had. no. idea. that Mickey was at Ohana! So. bummed. I would have picked that over CM! Im sure you have been to both... which do you prefer??

Yes, I do enjoy Zumba... It's probably not my work out of choice, but it is fun - and I feel like it gives me something fitness related to look forward to each week and keep me on track.

It's worth it. It's on the right hand side of the park. Good show. Dunno if we're going to have time to do it this trip. I think we'll only be at AK for about six hours this trip. DD and DGD are attending MNNSHP that night.
It is a must do for us on our next trip... I've always wanted to see it. It seems that we are no longer in a hurry to do new things each time, anymore. Rather we tour at a much more relaxed pace - which I like.

They will LOVE MNSSHP!!! I hope to do it again one day!

I agree - I am sure there are many more options out there now than there used to be. I just need her to make a conscious effort to make sure she is taking in the proper nutrition and to make better food choices than she would have otherwise. Which isn't an easy thing for a teen to do. I'd like to see her be successful at this, if it's something she believes in.

Thanks for stopping by Tess! I replied to your latest update, then I realized I missed the 2 prior to it. ACK! I will try to get back there and reply on those too... I have a crazy day ahead of me though - so probably not until Friday.

I am not sure I could do it? It's a difficult thing... I would miss all of the meat... and I mean ALL of it. LOL

Well - much to the dismay of MANY of my readers... I have NEVEr been to CM. It is on my some day Must-do list... I am hoping to work it into our next trip. However, I will say that we love 'Ohana, but we have never had good service there - the CMs always seem to be crabby, but the food and atmosphere are good.

************************************************** ********

Yesterday was a fun day in my sewing room. I worked on my custom order for the week in the morning. Then in the afternoon - I worked on one of my secret projects. I am IN LOVE with it, and I cannot wait to finish! I am just waiting on one more small fabric delivery.

We had leftovers for dinner... We have soooo many... Probably enough for 2 more meals. Guess who isn't making dinner this week?

Tonight, we are meeting up with Josh's aunt - who is here from Alaska. Her son goes to college in a nearby town... So we are meeting up with them for dinner. It should be fun - these are great people.

Otherwise - I will be working on the applique for my custom order today.

I hope you all have a wonderful day! My thoughts and prayers are with all who need them.

We never do either - usually - but I haven't adapted to Alli's vegetarianism yet - so I am still cooking for 4.

I am so excited for my fabric to come for my project... I don't think it will be here by the weekend though - so I will work on ANOTHER of my projects... I only have, um, several I am working on.

No worries Mo!!! I am glad you stopped by. Darn twitch!

************************************************** ********

Sorry everyone - no update again today... I have to work at Target today - and I've had a busy morning...

First of all - Yesterday I worked on my applique for my custom order this week - I am SUPER happy with it! Again - I think I caught the expression perfectly.

Then, last night, we drove to Northfield (Bernadette would be happy to hear this, as they have a relative that lives there) - and we went out to dinner at one of our favorite places... We had a great visit with Josh's aunt and cousin. His cousin plays hockey for one of the local colleges - so Josh and the girls are looking forward to the season starting in a few weeks.

Here's a photo of the girls by the river in Northfield last night... It was a gorgeous night!


And then, this morning I had to get up and help Victoria get ready for school. I love her!! And I LOVE that she is always willing to have fun!!!! So, the theme for today was "Back to the 90's" - hello... Class of 93' here... I've soooo GOT this!

We went shopping the other night at Goodwill... We purchased her a pair of Guess high waisted jeans... A Tommy tee shirt... and a sweater (which she didn't end up wearing)... The rest of it, we were able to dig out of the back of our closets... The Esprit bag is mine, the Liz Claiborne sunglasses were bff's, the shoes are mine (but they aren't technically 90's), and then the jean jacket... With Mickey on the back... Then I spent an hour this morning spraying her hair with hair spray and ratting the crap out of it... I did her make up too... I was laughing so hard I was crying several times. I wish I could dress her like this every day. She was joking around that Josh could wear these jeans and they could substitute for a back brace...

Anyways... Here is Miss V. this morning, in all her 90's glory!














Have a fantastic day - and if you have any great 90's stuff laying around... Maybe you should all get it out and wear it occasionally? It was a lot of fun to "go back".

Love the pictures of V in her '90's outfit. I looked like that in HS and that was quite the stylish outfit then. I'm not sure if I should be honored or horrified that they are making fun of the '90's now.

In my mind, it wasn't that long ago.

Well job on the hair!
