Monday musings

That's how I felt when I really and truly had finished those skirts.


Lime essential oil takes away the brown scuff marks
from white dancing shoes

It also gets all the sticky label residue off of jars.

Plus - it smells good.


dancing shoes,
a black fedora with a white satin band,
and an 'icecream suit'
might just garner you the title of "best dressed"
It did Brandon....


My family drives me bonkers with
'would you rather?'
(like - would you rather cut off your own pinky toe with a pocketknife
have diarrhea every 30 minutes for the rest of your life?)

 How do they come up with these things?!

They've been playing for weeks...


My favorite hand soap is

Mandarin Vetiver Glass Hand Soap

It's a splurge, for sure, but it is so yummy!
And the bottle is nice :-)
Of course, I dilute it slightly to stretch it further.

It's fair to note that Brandon doesn't like it.

Actually - he likes it okay,
but he feels that when you've washed your hands, they should simply smell clean

Silly boy.

I did not sit down Saturday afternoon/evening
from 2:30 - 10:00
except for 40 minutes, give or take, during the actual wedding ceremony,
and about 10 minutes when I sat on the floor
to visit with a friend who was nursing her baby.

I can not even tell you how many times I ran from one side of the building to the other.
It was a lot.


The wedding was sweet,
and, with Tim performing it,
of course had some humor, too.
He's a nut!

It goes without saying that the reception was wonderfully decorated ;-)


Lana and Luke were there,
and I got to hug her neck.
That made me happy


I found fabric that was perfect for the backing for Matt & Marin's quilt.
But it was from Ikea,
and they don't sell fabric online.

I sent out an S.O.S.
because I really wanted that fabric,
and Scott and Jackie offered to go pick it up for me.
Only their Ikea didn't have any.

Another friend offered to try her store.
They had it, so she bought some and sent it to me!
I got it today :-)

But it's not so perfect after all.
It's more of a decor weight than a quilting cotton
and the quilt is already going to be heavy,
since it is double layered where all of the dresdens are.
the white is really creamy,
and the black
is more grey.

But still, I am so thankful to have friends who will go out of their way to help me out :-)
I have 3 yds of sturdy fabric I can use for something.....


This weather!
I am sooo grateful we've had so much sunshine this winter!


I finally used my favorite needles, milliners, for their intended purpose.

Well, sort of....

If you like Lay's salt & vinegar chips,
you should try these.
but consider yourself warned.

They're at Walmart for $1 a bag.


Our family did the decorating for the reception, so I might be just a little bit biased.
Plus, I have no pictures to prove it....


I promise.
I'll stop it with the tulle skirts.

eventually.... ;-)

  1. Yay for the wedding stuff all done and coming off well!

    I hate those Would You Rathers, too! My kids make up their own impossible ones for me and they are just awful. Their imaginations are pretty wild. :)


You're leaving me a comment?? Oh goody! I love comments :-)
