Monday-Grocery shopping….had my daddio over for lunch….hung out at home…took pictures of clothes I made for the girls….that’s about all I did today. That, and watch the latest PanAm and Once Upon a Time episodes online. I’m slightly obsessed with both shows.
I look all sketchy in this pic. Wanna buy some watches?
Today was park day. I know, I know, my life is so exciting, stop making you jealous, right? We went on the slides (Stop it!)…and swings. (the excitement!)
Wednesday was a day at home-plus a quick trip to Target to pick out a birthday present for one of our favorite little boys. Man, I felt out of my element in the “boy” toy aisle. It was kind of pathetic. I was this close to asking for help from the teenage boy workers nearby, but I resisted. That would have been just sad. We managed to get something picked out that will hopefully meet his approval! That same boy and his sister came over to play in the afternoon while their parental units house hunted.
Top: J. Crew, thrifted-$5
Earrings: made by me with vintage buttons-$1
This is about as much pattern mixing as you’ll see me do-although I love the effect! Maybe I’ll get gutsy someday and be bolder. (hellooo missed a button. lol)
Thursday entailed a trip to Joann’s where I picked up various stuff for various projects. The ladies there always ask what I’m doing, and I feel like saying, “do you have an hour?” I’ve always got a million things going, it seems like. We also went out to lunch with Rory-and learned that Charlotte doesn’t like Chinese food. She is soo picky so I’m not surprised. She basically lives on cheese, fruit, and bread.
Infiniti scarves are so, so easy to make. I’ve made a few over the past weeks, you only need about 1/2 of fabric! (tutorial tomorrow!) This was some stretchy lace that I got for Sadie’s Mary Poppins dress, but never used. Wha-la. Fancy schmancy scarf-in about 10 minutes!
Rings are something else I’m realizing are super quick and easy to make! I mean, duh. Glue something onto a ring (I get my rings on Etsy). Let the glue dry and you’re done! I use that E-600 stuff for this kind of thing. This one I made with a vintage button, but you could also use vintage earrings, cabochons, you know the drill! Anything cute.
Saturday: Woke up, let Rory sleep in, finished Ender’s Game for book club, worked out, then ate french fries and chicken nuggets for lunch to totally nullify the work out… hung out at home because everyone has a cold….got cabin fever….yada yada.
Top/Cardigan: Ross-$9 (it’s one piece, sweet huh?)
Shoes: Old Navy-$10
Infiniti scarf: Made by me, $2 in materials
Necklace: Made by me, $5 in materials
I kinda love how the necklace looks, peeking out from underneath the scarf.
What do you think?
Sunday we didn’t make it to church, me and the kiddos were still at the tail end of our cold so we didn’t want to spread it around…but I still wanted to wear something cute…so….I did.
