I'm thankful for today!

Cookies, What a great way to start the day!  Why haven't I thought of this before? Well, it actually started with a spinning class.  And when I walked in (late) everyone cheered.  That was my first clue that this day was going to be awesome.  Really, everyone in that class likes to scream their way through the pain.  So any old excuse will do, even me.  Chris likes to make fun of them.  But he doesn't know what he's missing.
So back to the cookies, Mandee and I had to make something yummy in our newly finished aprons.  We used this pattern.  So cute and fun to make!

Plus it's reversible.

Aren't we cute?!

I love this picture!  So sweet.

Outside is always the most fun.  And today was such a gorgeous day.
Bentley went digging.
Chickie struck it rich and found gold.

Then after nap/work to another friends house!  That's so unlike us! Two outings in one day.
Little Riley, so cute and about to turn four!

Time sure does fly.
Chickie found fossils.  Or apostles, she was a little confused as to which one it was.  But apparently it was an Apatosaurus.  And she was much too busy digging to give me much of a smile.

The best part about today is that Chris is coming home! Yay! Now I will be able to sleep again.  Good thing it's only been a few days.

Ok, should not read the twilight series until you are ready to get sucked in. I made the mistake of lettting Mom read the last book while she was here, and she got sucked in. She finished it in a day. I love the books, but after you read them you will understand why Bella is an idiot. I can't wait for you to read them so we can discuss it.

You guys can get the aprons at the montessori by hand website. This girl makes original patterns and figures out patterns to vintage aprons. I love this one. It's seriously the nicest outfit I own right now. Kind of sad that my nicest outfit is an apron, but I keep spending all of my money on fabric. What to do....

Stacey, I have the two best books for sewing, Amy Butler's In Stitches, and Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. The instructions are so good (for the most part) that you can make a really nice project even if you don't really know what you are doing. Although, it took me a while to figure out what to do with the elephant.

I would love to have a sewing party! Mandee and I had a blast doing the aprons.
