The Birthday Dress!

…OK and it was also my Christmas dress.  ‘Cause preggo don’t need two fancy dresses (this is the Midwest after all).


I’m a little late on posting this.  JUST A TAD.  Took these photos on my birthday, which was FOUR weeks ago.  The bump seemed giant then and continues on its quest for world domination.

World. Domination.

It’s July! Summer Updates

I’ve been gone for a spell; ah, the ebb and flow which is my blogging.  I’m either on it and posting every week, or *poof* gone.  Well, we’ve been a bit busy since I last posted in June!

So, what’s up, Buttercup?

After three months of looking for a new house, we put in our fourth offer and it finally stuck!  FINALLY!  I’d say I’m probably most excited about this at the moment…


Amidst this craziness, I was lucky enough to be able to attend PR Weekend and got to meet and room with the delightful Meigan of Get My Stitch On.  <3

Talk about a room with a view!

Deer & Doe CentaureeIt’s been nice knowing you, Summer, even if you weren’t very like yourself this year.  Not nearly as hot as you usually are.  We all get a little out of sorts sometimes.  I get it.

I made this dress in September, when I was supposed to be selflessly sewing for others.  I think the whole Fashion Challenge 2 kind of messed with my selfless plans and the me me me monster reared its ugly head again.

I had my reasons, though.  This was a good one:  I needed something to wear to my parents’ 40th anniversary party.  That’s right, folks, they’ve been married for FORTY YEARS.
