happy weekend

Let's see if I can follow my own advice and have another really great weekend. Ha! Sometimes obligations are unavoidable and life is busier than I'd like it to be. This weekend is looking wide open once again, though, and that makes me happy. I am going to try to fill it with the best, most relaxing things. Like finishing my book. Or going on a family walk. Or practicing baseball with the boys in the park.

I've been knee deep in lining lace and shortening hems this week. I have a couple particularly beautiful dresses to work on, and it is such a pleasure to be surrounded by such pretty things and happy brides.

A tip for locals: I was at SAS in Tempe the other day and they had piles and piles of swimsuit fabric. I found a couple really cute ones and I am going to try my hand at making a suit for Mabel. I've never made one before, but with just a few dollars spent on fabric, I figured it was worth a shot.

What's on your docket this weekend? Mike and I never made it to the movies last weekend, so maybe we'll do that. We want to see this.

Have a good one!


  1. I have no plans for tomorrow (except bake a cake and prepare a YW lesson) so might ramble around New England. I'm thinking Western Mass or Connecticut this time.

  2. Did you see "Brooklyn"? It is a fantastic movie!
