Memorial Day Weekend!

Monday, May 25, 2009

Happy 3 day weekend everyone! 4 day if you are military! Brian started off the weekend by going with the teen boys from our church on a camping/fishing trip. They didn't catch a single fish but he said they really had a really great time. I started off the weekend by going with some of the teen girls and Lauren on a shopping trip to Morehead City Friday night. I got a few more maternity shirts at Ross and a few craft items at Michaels. Then we went to Belk, Can you believe I got this sweater dress for $2!! Its not maternity but it is going to be great for wearing this fall and winter!

Saturday morning while I was waiting for Brian to get home, I started a new little craft project: Baby Flip Flops! These are just my prototype in the beginning stages! I tried them on Lily Kate last night and they looked so cute! I will be sure to post when I get some sets done! I just need to figure out how to use the buttonhole foot on my sewing machine!
This is the lamp I picked up @ Walmart for $5! Christy thanks so much for telling me about these! The color is perfect for the room! Now I just need to find some shades to cover!
Yesterday we finished one of the nursery projects we have been wanting to do! We made a fabric roman shade for the nursery that is lined with blackout fabric! It looks so good, I just love it! The tutorial is from Little Green Notebook. I got a little frustrated with the process midway through when I had cut my finger on a ladder and then got a huge "paper cut" from one of the slats on the same finger and then burnt my foot on the hot glue gun. Thankfully I have an amazing husband who is good at remaining not frustrated and made me keep going! I just love the finished project!

Yay! I am so glad you found what you were looking for and on the cheap!
