RETRO-FIT #3 TAB SLEEVE BLOUSE & Vday fun

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2013


Today has been BUUUSY.

Dyed my ever graying hair, 
darn you color resistant strands, err.
Worked at the school 
(my Mondays got switched to Fridays)
Got some reimbursements,
went to bank,
party supply store
hurriedly wrote out some invites,
rushed to pick up kids from school,
passed out invites to my baby girl's party,
grabbed some Jamba Juice for all of us (sweet "duty"),
Oh and we're going out of town for a short stay
which includes packing.

Enough of my Friday,
I hope you have a great weekend!

Here's what Vday looked like and my VDAY REDO

RETRO-FIT #2 FAUX-CUFF SLEEVES

RETRO REDO, THRIFTED RETRO, FAUX CUFF, DIY SHORT SLEEVES

So, I was kind of  a single parent from last Thursday until Sunday.
Homework, meals, packed lunches, chores, laundry,
volunteering,  karate......
Hubby had to make a visit to his mom's due to some health issues.
But Praise the Lord, 
she's doing very well, so he made it home Sunday afternoon.
Sundays are typically early/long days, 
so the kids and I napped (I think I was more "pooped" ie. exhausted, by his absence)
 while hubby relaxed in his favorite chair
and 
watched some football.
When nap time was over, grabbed some quick dinner and a movie :)

We missed him tons, I'm SO thankful this isn't the norm.

Now for the REDO

RETRO-FIT FEBRUARY! CREATING FITTED SLEEVES AND BODY

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2013


RETRO REDO, FITTED SLEEVES, FITTED BODY, THRIFTED REDO,
WHAT is Retro-fit?
Check it out below!



Ahhh....
I feel so accomplished.

Its been a little over a week since MS moved out,
just from our home not our hearts :)
(we had family-nite last night!)

Accomplishment #1
2-4 at the end
I worked diligently to get my daughter's room ready for her
and my son's back to normal.


I plan in the near future to redo their rooms and give them a fresh look.
HELLO KITTY is her theme of choice
found online
and he's been wanting this...
found online
since LAST year.
We'll see what I can come up with on the cheap.


They've truly enjoyed having their own rooms again,
but like expected.......
they don't want to sleep in separate rooms yet.

My daughter is now back in her room,
 while my son sleeps in his sleeping bag,
over a few layers of padding,
on her floor. lol

Hubby say's ML will have to go back to his room soon,
I say, let them be, its ONLY been 10 days.

They've shared his room for.... since December of 2008.
And previous to that, her current room use to be his,
and even then HE shared it with her,
since my sis lived with us.

Can you blame them?!
I won this time hahaha.
