Today did not go exactly as I planned.
But, if you don't live in Texas, meet your new best friend. Do I need a new purse?
These are making me look forward to Christmas, even if we end up spending it at the beach. Maybe tomorrow I will brave the outdoors, work on my tan and knock out some signs. For now I am a bit partial to the beanies.
I sent Jason ziplining while I laid by the pool wasting brain cells as I read 1,383 pages of co-dependant, dysfunctional, teenage vampire garbage. (Sorry Twilight fans. I just don't get it. No judging.)
Couldn't believe how fast the past ten years have gone by. Flew back home excited to see the kids who survived just fine without us. So good in fact that my Mom was able to potty train Lucy while we were gone. Best homecoming gift ever. A two month reprieve from diaper duty. Possibly even better than a week on a tropical island.
Lastly, I don't know how or why she does it, but from the Fabulous Grosgrain comes this gorgeous, ridiculous, scrumptious, frivolous, frothy,
Marie-Therese Gown GIVEAWAY !!!!!!!
Here's a quick tutorial link for you today. I found this pumpkin beauty that Elise made over at Nest Sweet Nest and it has suddenly moved to the top of my must do list. I love the fabrics she chose and the fact that it will last all the way through Thanksgiving. It is over 90 degrees here, but I am willing myself to believe that it is indeed Autumn. You can find the full tutorial right here.
I am not one of those Runway Moms. They are not really human anyway.
Wait... are you thinking that I might need a little spell check for my signs?
If you are feeling crafty head on over to Hostess with the Mostess for instructions on how to make these fab paper pumpkins. I bet even your kids would want to help out.
My old neighborhood was filled with young families and each Halloween we would "Boo" each other. It is a fun tradition and Simply Mein has great downloads and instructions on how you can start it where you live.
