LOVE MONTH #4: GRAMA B, A PURSE & A BABY

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2012


We had our baby girl's CINEMA CELEBRATION birthday party yesterday!
Ok, she's 6
but our kids will ALWAYS be our babies.
RIGHT?!
Most of us feel that way :)


One of her SILLY shots :)



Although there were some glitches and lots of guests not in attendance,
we had fun and made the best of it!
Gotta give it up to M.S. our daughter/student for all her help
and our close friend P.S. for fixing the glitches!
Hoping to post pics soon
and someday, put up all my kid's bday themes


I had planned on making a bag with cute hearts (my 1st ever) but due to all the activities I decided to go a different route.
When my son was about 1 my Grama B, mom, Aunt J (6ms younger than I, heehee) and I went to a local, huge, craft/vendor/yard sale.
One of the vendors was selling lots of cute purses, and being that my grama B was so giving, bought me and my aunt J some.
This is one of them.
I'd only used it a few times, since it never quite had the storage I needed.
The last time I had used it, one of the straps broke.

LOVE MONTH #3: MEN'S LONG SLEEVE = GIRLY TOP

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2012

Ya, I'm late.
I'd been busy getting my baby girl's invites ready, birthday outfit, bday pics, prepping for her birthday (2/21), her upcoming party (our parties aren't big, but pretty detailed 2/25),
going to Eureka (Fri-Sun),
and this redo after getting back.

If only I could have learned a tad,
just a tad from my previous redo, I wouldn't have been so late.

I did it again, made it a "little" snug around the chest area.
I fixed it though :)
in 3 parts haha
And although I didn't work on the 2nd item this week but the previous (forgot to post),
I did a FRIEND FIX for my daughter.

I found some cute clothes at the thrift store for my baby girl.
 I didn't realize 'till I got home that 3 pieces worked together, which became her bday outfit!
I love how things just work out.

Roses are pretty, but I prefer Gerbera Daisies anyday!


I hope you have a great Vday.


Here's a little love sent your way, with a song that gets me pumped!





And one that touches my heart :)

LOVE MONTH #2: MISTAKE + MIRACLE= GREAT, ANGLED BLOUSE :)

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2012

The last few weeks I've found myself listening (singing) to this song over and over.
Its a song I first heard on a multi-artist CD I got back in 2010,
and even then I was listening to it quite often.
I never thought to look the guy up, I was satisfied with my CD.
(Turns out he was an AMERICAN IDOL contestant)
 Since I wanted to share, I did a little research,  found him & his song.
Take a listen.
 :)

"Taste and See"

Pretty nice, right?, RIGHT?
 Eh, you don't gotta agree, just humor me lol


This week I worked on another dress. I bought it over a year ago with the intent of doing a VDAY outfit (2011) but...........I chickened out due to fraying on this type of material. I know, why'd I buy it? I loved the sheerness of it, the color, the possibilities.......
it ended no where haha.

LOVE MONTH :) HIS AND HER VALENTINE SHIRTS


SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2012



VALENTINE SHIRTS, HIS AND HER SHIRTS

Ok, so its not VALENTINE'S DAY.........YET.

But in honor of that day and the added focus on expressing one's appreciation &
 love for your significant other,
or anyone who is special in your life;
I have dedicated February to Vday themed REDO's.

I will tread lightly as I do not want these to be cheesy in any way, haha.

LESSONS IN FAITH

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2012


I thought I'd share a little bit of our lives.
Condensed version, slightly updated


Four years ago today, my hubby was unemployed.

He came home mid day and shared the news.
 It was shocking to say the least and hard to wrap our brains around.
My hubby is and has always been an extremely hard and dedicated worker.
He is as committed and driven as they come.
As unfortunate as it was, we committed to seeing it through with God's help.
