Monday Musings

Good morning, friends! Happy Monday!

What is it about Mondays? I just can't get going on Mondays. I set my alarm for 6:00 so that I could get up, get a post on the blog and then cut out a pattern. But instead, I snoozed the alarm for an hour and have no desire to do anything this morning but watch GMA and drink my coffee.... Monday is my lazy day. I can't remember the last Monday that was productive. It is supposed to rain all day today, so I'm only hoping to clean Harry's drawers and closet out! If I can get that done and dinner on the table than it will be a successful Monday :)

Here's a SUPER random, phone dump, post for you. Ha!

Knocked out a couple of orders last week and think these two fabrics might be my all-time favorites. The Darling Clementine floral is so sweet and dainty and the lemon just screams summer! The lemon fabric is from an Etsy shop that is located in Asia so its fun to have some fabric that no one else has! Elle saw the lemon dress and said "oh my goodness, Mama. I love that! I would love it if it was all lemons and didn't have the pink top...". So I made her a version that has a lemon bodice and skirt with pink stripe pockets. It turned out so cute and she loves it. I'll share it later this week, along with the pattern and the adjustments I make to it. It's such a fun dress to make.

I kind of pampered myself a smidgen last week :)....I chopped all my hair off and got new shoes. Like chopped my hair off to my ears. I have a bunch of fun long pixie cuts on my hair + beauty pinterest board [here] and I'm hoping to eventually get to that long pixie cut. It's short but I think its so stylish and chic. And the story behind the new shoes: so I've been wanting to get some Salt Waters for about 3 years but just never have, so last Tuesday night we ate dinner with some friends (whom we have seen in over 2 years) and my friend, Jessica, was wearing some Salt Waters. I tried them on and instantly fell in love. So comfortable! I ordered them on my way home from dinner. Ha! I ordered the size she had, but unfortunately they are too small so I have to exchange them (which is annoying) but I'm super excited to have some matching sandals with  my kiddos. SO FUN!

mondaymusings03We are gearing up for Harry's SECOND birthday party around here! We are doing a Peace, Love, & Harry theme :). I came across some tie dye balloons about a month ago and knew I wanted to somehow use them because they were so fun! So we decided on a hippie birthday! IT's going to be so fun! Aaron has seriously made the CUTEST invitation of ALL TIME and I can't wait to share it with you. It is SO FUN! I have plans for all those fat quarters and was ecstatic that Joann had them for $.75 this week. I'm so excited about his party. It's going to be so fun. But, y'all, how is my baby almost TWO?

mondaymusings04Last week was such a pretty week to be outside. GORGEOUS! We literally spent every waking moment outside. And this week, all week, we have rain in the forecast. Bummer. But that will just bring all the pretty blooms out, so I am excited for that! Just not looking forward to being stuck inside all week. But we have some fun evening plans with friends and we'll just have to make some trips to the inside Chickfila and Barnes and Noble to pass the time!

Hope you all have a great week!



  1. I have red saltwaters that I got a couple of years ago and I love them! And your hair is too fab. You make me wish I could pull off short hair!
