Snow Day & New, Fun Fabrics!!

So yesturday was a snow day. We had a few flakes come down and they closed all surrounding schools. Im not complaining though... snow days are great no matter what you end up doing! We had a house full of kids running around the house like a stampede most of the day, but it was one of those rare occasions where the sound of the stampede was actaully pleasant and brought a smile to my face.... Im off my rocker, arent I?! They went out first thing in the morning to play in the few flakes laying on the grass, then came in, stripped their many layers off leaving a sea of coats, scarves, gloves and hats in the hallway, then warmed up & recharged with some hot chocolate & popcorn... then off to the playroom they went... like a stampede on a mission! Then we didnt see them again until lunch was served... chicken noodle soup, carrots, apples and string cheese... mmm-good! Once they finished... the stampede fled again up the stairs until it was time for everyone to return home. It was a great snow day!

So I have some new fabrics Im dying to play with!!! Ill try to add a picture of some of them later today. Im thinking about trying my hand at some sun dresses for the Spring/Summer. Skirts are still my 1st love, so there will still be plenty of new skirt designs to come, but Id really like to try out this new dress design that keeps haunting me for the toddler age. So many ideas, so little time!!! Keep checking the site though... I expect to have a couple new things on there sometime next week... well, as long as I can manage my time wisely with my PTO duties... that one is always an unknown... always interesting and keeps me on my toes constantly... I think I secretly love it, but boy-o-boy... it takes quite a chunk of time out of my weeks!!

Anyhooooo, I must confess something to you really quick before I close... I have done HORRIBLY about working out this week... we had off school for Martin Luther King, Jr holiday on Monday, then snow day on Tuesday, and then jumped right into work once Alex walked out the door this morning. SO!! I will use this confession to my advantage... Im closing this out and going straight upstairs to my treadmill... and Ill be feeling those love handles bouncing at every step I climb (boy, you'd think that would be enough of a reminder, ya know?) One day at a time... that's what I need to keep reminding myself... one day at time. Ok, off to make my fate for TODAY!! :) Have a lovely Wednesday my friends!!


  1. I can't wait to see the new dresses.I love spring dresses on little girls.May have to take one to Haiti with me in April...
