The past couple of day the kiddos and I have been eating lunch outside. Yes it has gotten a little bit warmer. But that isn't the reason Mr. E wants to dine with nature. Actually he is scared of ants. I have to remind him that they won't hurt him.
Grilled Cheese sandwiches and grapes...Mr. E informed me they were better when he ate them outside.
So I was able to capture some great "cheese" expressions...well Miss C's is a "Pizza".
Here is the fascinating scene.
They are patching some rough spots on our road and Mr. E has loved watching all the action!
We are on the downside of Dogwood winter in my neck of the woods. This is the cold snap that hits when the dogwoods bloom. There are several winters, and now we only have two left to go. So are you confused, thought there was only ONE winter? Well here in the South, and maybe other places, we have cold snaps that can last for a couple of days. These are followed by warmer days...and this past weekend I do mean warm....almost 90 degrees!!!
So in honor of the ever changing Spring weather I made a Dogwood Dress.
I like the versatility of pillowcase dresses. This will be perfect with a t-shirt underneath when it is chilly outside, but totally cute just by itself when it is warmer. I think it will be really cute paired with a yellow pair of leggings. I can't wait to try it on Miss C.!!
This is made from fabric scraps passed down from my grandmother. I think it makes this dress extra special for Miss C.
Have you all made pillowcase dresses? If so I would love to see pictures. These make such cute outfits!
I have gotten some high end catalogs in the mail in the past couple of weeks. I have thoroughly enjoyed par oozing the pictures and drooling over the latest trends.
The main problem is that I can't bring myself to purchase anything I like. They are just too expensive for my blood. Hopefully I will find some similar items at yard sales and Goodwill. I know I have seen some great tutorials for similar items out in blog land. If I make any thing remotely similar I will definitely share!
I have been crafting, just not as much as I would like. Unfortunately what I have been making. i.e. homework and papers, isn't anything that you all would be interested in. My semester is almost over and it seems like everything is due all at once. This happens every semester, and every semester I feel overwhelmed for a couple of weeks. Then finals come and go and it is all over, for a little while at least.
I am almost done with my masters degree, I have three classes left. None of the classes are offered this summer. So guess what!!! I am planning on crafting, reading (non-textbooks), cooking (well I am doing that now, just not always sharing), and doing some fun projects with my kiddos! Hopefully that will also mean I will be hanging out here a little bit more.
Over the next couple of days I will share some of the things I have made with ya, until then...here is a picture of me and the hubby at a Milwaukee Admirals Hockey game earlier in the year. Man it was cold in there...and even colder outside. I am so glad Spring is here and warm weather is just a short time away from being here for good!!
