double digits

Happy Friday!
My sweet baby is officially in the double digits.
Today Mattie turns 10 weeks old.
Time flies!

Here are some shots of her cuteness on her ten week birthday.

(Sorry about the blurry pictures. She is ALWAYS wiggling!)

I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Do you have any good plans?

Much love

It's spring time so I made a new dress!

SO I did something super wild today...
I mean really stinking crazy.
I am not going to tell you what!
Well not yet at least ;)

I am going to show you an entirely too cute dress I made.
But before that, guess what...
I found my new favorite thing in the blogging world
Sew A Longs!
(I know, I know... I am SO new at this blog thing :)

Anywho, this dress is the product of my first sew a long adventure!!
If you want to make one too
it is so easy
just follow this tutorial.

Warning: excess amount of pictures of me... sorry about that.
Can you tell I am proud ;)

This is the perfect little dress for church

(Aren't these shoes so cute. They were my grandmothers!)

(Zadie needed to help)

Or running to the store

(If you decide to make this dress I think a thinner fabric would hang nicer!)

(Weird face, but lovely purse!)

(I even made this cute little belt!)

Or, switch up the belt add some funky shoes and go out on the town!

(I heart these shoes)

Isn't it sew stinking cute! (pun intended ;)
Now go make one.
Then take a trillion pictures of yourself in it.
I'll come tell you how cute it looks!

So- have you found anymore good sew-a-longs out there? Do share! I am so excited I have even started a pin board for them!!

much love

A few of my favorite things...

I have scored some great finds lately and I wanted to share!

I had a fun little shopping trip to Jo-Ann's with a gift card in hand
and two little cuties by my side.

to make this:

And all these because they were on sale and I LOVED them!

And all this scrumptious beauty to try make this:

need to make this! 

Then on the way to an art festival I stopped at a yard
sale and found some fabulous goodies!

Don't you love these frames!

The detail is stunning.
mmm... and I have NO idea what I am going to with them!
But I do see paint in the very near future...

This is what caught my eye first.
Aren't you in love; I know I am!
Now, do you have any idea what I should do with them ?! 
Just Joking
I know the gods of inspiration will hit me sometime ;)
Now where to store them...

And finally
I stopped by old time pottery on my way to a baby shower 
and found
For only a buck fifty in the discount section, I couldn't pass up this baby.
I am seeing a little chalk board paint in this frame's future!

OOOOHHH! and I finally found the material for Zadie's window seat!

Now to find the time to make a cushion!
and a dress.
and a skirt for Zadie.
and some frames...

I better get busy :)

And for a little laughter-
Zadie got into the junk drawer and found a wig we had laying around.
(Don't judge- we have wigs in our junk drawer. That is totally normal :)

Much love

Life is good

I've told you about my funk in a previous post.
The hubster has really been encouraging me to let 
my screw-ups go and enjoy my life.

So I listened because,
hey what can I really do about it beside apologize and move on.
Let's just say I have been apologizing A LOT lately
to friends, family, the doctor, my dogs...
the list goes on and on :)

Ah, but so goes life right.
We win some and we lose some.

The last few days I have been winning
in the small moments 
and I just wanted to share them with you!

Precious first smiles from Mattie.

Playing in the yard after a rainy day

Enjoying the beautiful artwork Christ created for us.

Morning snuggles

Time at the beach

Playing with daddy

Snugly in the tent

Watching Zadie get brave and explore on her own.

Enjoying my man.

Bringing our house to the beach every time we go :)

Watching sweet moments happen with two people I love most in the world.

Silly Zadie times.
(Yes that is hummus in the bowl on her head!)

Watching my precious newborn sleep.

Life is good.
