As some of you know, this past weekend I visited my sister and brother in Utah. I also visited lots of fabric stores! 😀 Giddy face! Including Hobby Lobby! This is my stack from the cut counter, I had to pare it down a lot too. lol. You can see the polka dots on the bottom…yeah I’m pretty much making the same dress Erin did here. hehe. The rest I don’t have many plans for, just had to get it since we don’t have one nearby!
Saturday was a SHOPPING day! We (being Courtenay, sis in law Steph, my sister Joanna, and I+Charlotte and Everett) hit up a yard sale first (found a cool book from my childhood and neat painting), then Hobby Lobby, Material Girls, Fabric Center, Hancock Fabrics, and the Downeast Outlet.
Stopped at Chik fil-A for some fuel! Pretty yummy! Don’t mind my tired eyes. Charlotte pretty much kept me up the whole night before, Joanna too. I gave up on trying to get her to sleep at 4:30 and we watched Arrested Development.
Charlotte and Everett had several cute moments together throughout the trip, and were pros at napping when we were in the car! Don’t they look cute in their Baprons!?
I ended up buying around 20 yards of fabric, er, hehe. I saved up!
That night we all gathered at Courtenay and her hubby John’s new house! (John is my cousin, btw, the sisters married cousins!) It is adorable and I can’t wait to see how she decorates it!
Courtenay and Steph (she made that corsage, adorable, right?)
Stephanie picked out some fabric and colors for her nursery-it is going to be Soo cute.
My sis and her hubby Cody. He was such a good sport about Charlotte’s crying at night and I enjoyed getting to know him better!
Monday my sis and I hit up some thrift stores and had lunch together. It was so nice to have lots of talk time with her. THANK you so much for carting me around Jobo!
Does that face look familiar to anyone? I met my pal Katie from Notes from a Very Red Kitchen! It was so fun to meet in real life, kind of surreal! We gabbed for awhile that afternoon. It was so fun to meet her in real life and chat about blogs, kids, etc. Her daughter Olivia is so cute and was so sweet with Charlotte! They even had a diaper changing party together. Our kids know how to live it up! She sent me home with a bag of tee shirts that I can’t wait to play around with.
Joanna and I had fun picking out some fabric, curtains, frames, etc, to spruce up her front room. Stephanie was nice enough to let us take over her sewing machine that night to make some pillow covers. Joanna was so excited about them she started looking up sewing machine reviews with her hubby Cody that night. ANother one bites the dust!
They turned out cute huh? Our poses, not so much. But anyways. It was so nice to visit with friends and family that I don’t see often. Besides Charlotte being a royal pain at night, she did really good. It was nice to see her uncles and aunts bonding with her a bit, by the end she was really comfortable with them! (yes, it takes her awhile to warm up to anyone)
My brother Jarom also got me hooked on Eli Stone. So good! Thanks you guys for feeding me and hanging out every day. I loved it!
