here is a look at the last 7 days of my life...well, actually, just a few highs + lows.
i dropped off the cushions for this chair to get recovered. i have had this chair for about 9 years, and
it has been sad and grundgy looking for the last 5! i chose an off white and black stripe fabric and the welting will be in a black velvet. i am super excited to see them all finished!
found the first gray hair on my husbands head... evidence that we are getting older. i haven't spotted any on my head...yet, but i know it's coming around the bend...and FAST! he is insisting this hair is blonde. i love ya sweetie, but i am PRETTY sure that this is NOT a blonde hair.
got to go fabric shopping with a dear friend, and ran into caitlin creer. it was fun chatting with her about design, motherhood and fabrics!
it might be mean to say this was a low, but it was....my oldest daughter did a science project where she had to poll 230 people on their birthdays. not only did we spend a lot of time at the mall, the theater, and the grocery store, (and a few other places) but we also stayed up until 1:45am the night before it was due, trying to compile the data into a power point presentation. why is middle school so hard??
getting to dress up my two youngest kids, and attend a halloween parade at their elementary school.
ran to the grocery store, only to look down, and realize i was wearing slippers!
this moment was a new all-time low for me. at least i didn't wear my flesh colored leggings,
light-up halloween sweatshirt and my top hat. that would have landed me here for sure!
also, i spotted this...at first i thought it was ridiculous, and then i found myself fantasizing about snuggling on the couch and being all warm and cozy and "forever lazy". just the fact that i
considered buying one of these things EVEN for a SECOND makes this a definite LOW.
going to the bakery, armed with fabric swatch and a sketch for my daughters birthday cake, only to be told is was going to be "at least $150". what?? i settled on a smaller version, and it ended up costing a LOT less. so, i guess this is a HIGH and a LOW.
found the perfect colors of flowers for the birthday party at the grocery store! i was fully prepared to pay through the nose at the florist to get the colors i needed, but i spotted these, and saved a ton of money! not only were the bunches $3.99 each, but there was a coupon for buy one, get one 1/2 off. SO, i got 8 bunches of flowers for $24! i will share pictures of the party this week sometime.
sending my kiddos (the ghoul, the mummy bride, and medusa) off the trick or treat with their dad. they are getting so BIG!
