    Christmas Eve

    Merry Christmas Eve!!! Earlier this year, I was perusing my local Goodwill’s fabric section, as I am very prone to do these days now that I have my own sewing machine and kids + a husband (and myself) to sew for, and I saw this fabric. Is it not the most perfect Christmas fabric you’ve ever seen? I bought it with many anxious thoughts about whether or not there was enough – by my estimation using the tips-of-fingers-to-nose measuring (if you don’t know, that usually equals about a yard, give or take), there was about three yards.

    Mush and Slush

    Two years ago in the summer, I jokingly prayed “God, I would love a boyfriend for Christmas!” just to have a good excuse to give the flirtatious guys who came through where I worked.

I hope you and your families are having a wonderful, wonderful day! bloglovin | chictopia | facebook | twitter | pinterest | Instagram | Fiction Press

    Flowers and mustard

    There are so many exciting things coming up right now, it’s hard to know what to start with! I’m almost full-term with pregnancy, it’s almost Christmas, I’m almost done with Dressember, it’s almost time for vacation with my in-laws… I can’t believe all of the things happening. We’ll start with Dressember: I forgot to do a roundup for last week AND the week before, and I missed one day completely (didn’t get dressed, I’ll admit!). And yes, I wear that maroon dress and those boots a LOT. Hey, when you’re this pregnant, repetition is kind of the only option sometimes! That, and it’s almost always raining or otherwise mushy and…
