I love V's hair!! Did she get a perm? And the glassesclassic yet cool! I'm sure she got a lot of compliments about them.

You can put me at a later slot for a bag. Oh, that's right, I don't have a slot. Dang!

I hope you get a lot done and back on track. In Mo's wordsSlacker!!

Glad your talking to wasn't as bad as it could have been. But still not good that they scheduled you on a day you haven't worked in forever!!

I love Vs glasses she looks adorable. I love when C wears hers. I call it geeky chic though I want to go and order her a second pair.

Thanks, but I think I have it as good as it gets... It was getting to the point where if I moved 1 person, it would cause 2 more to miss the opportunity. So, I'll just leave it, but thanks for the offer.

I am going to be paying for it this weekend - I can't see how I'll get everything done I need to without working over the weekend. And Peyton has strep throat. Luckily my parents were able to help out and they are watching both girls today so I am back at the office - although my co-workers want me to go home - they are afraid I have strep throat germs. Off to be super productive!
Oh no... What a bummer - I sure hope she is feeling better soon. I know how you feel - I'll be working along side of you all weekend.

Her gift is finished though! We are supposed to get together tomorrow night, so all is not lost. Last year, I don't think I gave her gift to her until May. The worst part is that she lives about 4 miles from me.

Have a great day! C and I are looking at newer cars too....
I know the feeling - I am HORRIBLE about cards. When my dad first went into the nursing home, I went out and purchased a bunch of "thinking of you" cards... Thinking if they were here, I could just sign one occasionally and drop it in the mail... I have only mailed him one...

Any luck with cars?

Nope, no perm... She likes to roll it in curlers before bed... She is quite good and quick at it. I took a photo of her the other day, but she would KILL me if I posted it here... It was soooo cute though.

You know, I wish I could. But all those people who didn't get a spot would probably lynch me.

You are right - he will do it when he is ready. This was good practice for him though.

Me too... Yah - that was kind of annoying. I have a feeling it will be like that a lot now. Really gonna have to watch that schedule.

Thanks! I think they are so cute! And she loves them, so that's a bonus.

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

I wish I could say that I accomplished something yesterday, but I did not. Sigh.

The plan was to go grocery shopping with BFF in the morning, then come home and work...

Well... BFF had a LOT on her list - I didn't make it home until AFTER the girls were home from school and AFTER Josh was home from work! GULP!

To top it off, I came home with a roaring headache... So not only did I not work in my sewing room yesterday, but I didn't make dinner for the family either.

I am feeling much better this morning.

V has her shoot today for the last day of her gun safety training - so her and Josh will be gone all day.

I will be home - WORKING!!! With any luck - I will catch up. I don't have much of my applique left to do, so I suspect I can finish this bag today if I really dedicate myself. It will take all day, but that's OK.

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

On a side note... I have to share. I probably shouldn't, but well - it's fun - well, fun for me anyways.

So, as you all know, I am meeting the girls in Chicago at the end of May... SUPER EXCITED!

One thing I really want to do, is to go out to dinner with them, somewhere "nicer"... Not fancy, but somewhere I can dress up a little and wear a skirt. I purchased the fabric last fall - and I've been holding on to it until spring, where I can make the skirt in the proper size... I've been picking up little pieces for this outfit as the year has gone on... and I finally ordered the last piece to it this morning... You all know I have a "thing" for red shoes (and swimwear, but that's another story)... Well, I've always wanted a pair of red sandals, and I found this pair the other day - fell. in. love! When BFF and I were out shopping yesterday, I found a local store where I could try them on, but they didn't have red... I was forced to order them online. Super comfy, super cute! (Crap, now I want the brown ones... and the lime... Still another story) I am just so excited to finally be small enough where I can dress up and wear fun stuff!

But I had to show you all - because red shoes make my heart pitter-patter.


So, now my fun outfit for the trip is complete... Once I make the skirt...

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

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!!! Sending out prayers and wonderful (WARM) spring thoughts to all of you!

As far as cars go, we have just been looking and doing some research. Not going to get a new car but a newer used car. Looking at smaller cars like the Ford Fiesta. Probably not going to get one until sometime over the summer. I'll be driving it back and forth to work since the gas mileage will be better and I drive 20 miles one way. Charlie will use it when he has to go out of town and I'll drive the Escape - which I love, but the gas mileage is not great.

Well, since you will have a new outfit for our trip I guess that means I need to get on the stick and find something too. I have a pair of red sandals that I bought last year and I love them. I can't wait for it to be warm enough here to start wearing capris and sandals! I bought a pair of lime green Keens that I'm dying to wear too.

I think I'm going to make a new bag with the villians fabric I found at JoAnns. I've decided I need a slightly larger version of the two-zip hipster and I need to add more pockets to it - and a water bottle pocket. I've been running the idea around in my head, so I think I know what I want to do now, so its time to get started on it. I also have a bunch of tshirts to work on for some midgets we know...

I hope you have a productive day in your sewing room.

Thanks! I just love them... I have a shoe problem...

I am super excited about the outfit - however - after ordering my red shoes yesterday, I double checked the fabric and it's more of a dark coral - sigh... I sure hope it looks OK with red shoes? For some reason, my brain was thinking "red"... Although - that would warrant the turquoise ones I want...

Thanks Lillian... I was able to make good progress yesterday. I am not done with this bag yet - but I am close... about another hour. Not sure if I will do it today or Tuesday morning?

I am excited about my outfit. I may have to have Alli take me out on another photo shoot. I love those!

That makes total sense. I hope you are able to find something good.

I think that you and I are going to get along famously. No need for a new outfit - but you could make yourself a skirt too, so I don't feel out of place.

I know - I've been "on strike" for weeks now... I've only been wearing capris and sandals... So far, so good. Yesterday, we hit 42 deg, and it was all I could do to keep myself from whipping out the ONE pair of shorts I own that fit me.

On a side note, I have a pair of baby blue Keens... I love them. I really loved Bernadette's dark blue pair too (she wore them to our water park day last year) - they were super cute! I think that lime would be adorable as well, Keens are great park shoes - I also wear mine to work all the time.

You know how this excites me!

I also have some fabric I need to send you - I've had it set aside for several weeks, and I keep forgetting to put it in the mail... I will try to do that this week.

I've been debating on making myself a new bag for our trip too... My dillema is that I really want to use the same fabrics I am using for my skirt... but I am worried that they will be too matchy-matchy? I can't decide.

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

I had a really good day in my sewing room yesterday... I was able to almost completely catch up. I have about an hours worth of work to do yet. I may be able to do that today, otherwise I will do it on Tuesday morning. I will be completely caught up at that point, and I am very relieved about it.

Allison and I hung out most of the day yesterday - after I finished working in my sewing room.

Josh and Victoria spent the day at the shooting range... She PASSED her gun safety training! So PROUD of her!!!!!

I was in a spring mood yesterday, so I went to the meat market and purchased a few packages of bratwurst for Josh to grill last night... It was heavenly! I also made a strawberry/spinach salad. The whole dinner really hit the spot!

My neighbors were sitting on their deck when I got home from the meat market yesterday, so I went over and sat with them to chat for about an hour. It was wonderful... We are super close with all of our neighbors - but in the winter time, we rarely see eachother. So, it was great to sit there and catch up - and soak in a bit of Vitamin D on top of it.

I was going to go for a walk yesterday, but I opted to sit with our neighbors instead. Today is supposed to be nicer - so I think I may go out today instead.

Gus came over last night... He stayed for a little while. Again, it's nice to have him here.

Ok - so on to my skirt outfit dillema - which I mentioned a little bit above...

I ordered those beautiful red sandals, then I went to look at the fabric again, and it's more of a coral/orange color (not the red I remembered it to be...) So, do you all think the red will be OK? Or should I try to find something else to go with it?




Because I adore these too...


OK, I am done... I would like your opinions though... I know it's hard to tell from pictures... I thought about ordering different fabric - but I just LOVE these fabrics and they will be so FUN for spring!

Have an amazing day everyone! Prayers and good thoughts to all!

I would probably go with the blue for those fabrics but I would definitely keep the red because those would look adorable with capris.

can I ask what brand of shoes those are?

I think the blue would look better with those fabrics but I'd keep the red. One can never have too many pairs of shoes.
You're so lucky that you got to sit out yesterday. We had a bad snow storm. Friday it was in the 50's. It's all supposed to melt this week when it gets into the 50's again.
We're finally getting a new photo printer at work. We barely made it through Christmas last year.
V looks so cute in her new glasses and hair.

Hi D!

I was lured out of 'lurkdom' with talk of strawberry/spinach salad and cute Dansko sandals!!!

I'm a lover of that salad combo- so spring tasting- even though in NH we still have snow and temps in the 30s going on- that salad combo makes it seem like spring will happen soon.

I love the fabrics for your skirt but I'd agree with what you are thinking- the red is a little too red for the fabric- however those blue ones will look awesome. I like the prior posters comment to keep the red 'cuz they will look awesome with capris. So I'd vote to keep both!

Hope you had a fabulous day!

I think Gus had a good birthday. I did thank him for spending it with us, as I am sure his family wanted to spend it with him too, but it sounds like they are celebrating next week. So, that's good.

D~
I'm very curious about Gus. He sounds like a nice guy but I can't help wonder what his life at home is like. He seems to spend a lot of time at your house, even on important days when most teenagers would be home. Do you find that unusual?
