What I Wore Wednesday

 Tops:  Aqua Tee from Old Navy paired with Long Cardigan from Khols.  {I love this Cardigan!}

Bottoms:  Jeans from Gap
Feeling "Fallish" today - broke out the green clogs.  - from Target.

- Oh!  And check out that stump I am standing on.  Yep.  We got the tree down.  $100 {The guy asked for $50 - but it was worth more than that!}  He was helpful & we appreciated him in our time of need.  Happy to have that stress out of the way.

Weekend RePlay

 We had a very much inside weekend.  While Hurricane Irene showed her face through the Carolinas.  We stayed inside & had a tasty crockpot dinner.  The kiddies helped me make some rolls.  They were incredibly tasty.    As Mr. L was getting the breakdown costs of our car getting its 100,000 mile services done -- the big pine in our backyard split in half and just missed the shed & neighboring fence.     I am feeling my bank account get lighter & lighter.
 We are now left with a 30 ft danger in the yard & $500 less in our bank account.  And because its hurricane season the local tree companies are wanting $1,000 an hour. I don't even think so.   
Sunday I got all these pillowcase dresses made up.  Success with the pillowcase dress sale.  {Yay.}
 Hurricane Irene - who was no longer a "Hurricane" hit VT {Our home state} on Sunday.  Making what happened in my backyard look like nothing.   Homes, Roads & Historical Bridges gone & damaged.  Complete shock for the northeast.   Irene hit just about the entire East Coast.  Amazing what nature can do.

Happy. And Blessed Today.

Pink. Polkadots. Princess. Pepperoni. Picnic.

A new pink dress with polkadot trims - fit for a  princess 
ready for a pepperoni sandwich at her  picnic.

All those "P" words were rather fitting.  Today we were working on the letter "P."  How it sounds, what starts with the letter "P" & how to write it.  Perfectly Pleasant "P."

Weekend RePlay

Here we go again.  We try to hurry the week by just to get to the weekend & then it flies right by.  Glad I got some pictures to capture the blink of an eye we call "The Weekend." Anyone else feel its more of a week beginning?  For us its when we try to rest & at the same time get groceries & such for the week.  I feel like it starts our week. - or at-least Sunday does Freshly bathed kiddies.  To bed early.  Mommy & Daddy time on the couch catching up on the dvr.  Relaxing to start the week off right.   

I got my new machine Friday night.  Yay.  Had lots of catching up to do with the two days without.  I love how this sun suit turned out & the simple black girls top with the flutter cap sleeve.  Just beautiful.

Try not to rush your week by just to get to the blur of a weekend we get.  Enjoy each & everyday.  Make the most of it.

Da Pug

 Da Pug is one lazy boy today all the time.  I thought I'd get a few pictures of him.  I mean he's part of the family & he hasn't been seen on the blog in-awhile. 
Didn't take much to wake him up.  
{"Wanta Treat?"} Huh? Me. I am Up.

Weekend RePlay

Friday night we headed out to Five County Stadium for a Mud Cats game.  Free - courtesy of Time Warner Cable.  All three of the kids LOVED the game.  Usually its ..."Is the game over yet."  {Before its even started!}  Not this time.  All Smiles.  We even stayed to the end to see the fireworks.   

Saturday we all slept in from the late night out at the game.  Later we did some grocery shopping at Costco & Aldis.  Stocked up on food for the week.  Came home & made super good Chicken & Veggie Quesadillas. Yumm.
Sunday I re-covered this pillow for the front porch rocking chair.  Of course I have another chair - so it looks like I have more work ahead of me.  Of course we later did our typical Sunday thing.  The Library.  {Which after all these weeks of going every Sunday - Jack just caught on.}  ... "Of course we are going to the library Mom.  Its Sunday."
I just finished up this dress that I started Friday.  Happy to get it done before Emma went to bed.  I got a couple good pictures of the dress & her. - I can sew one for your lil' gal too!  Check out my etsy shop here: 
You can convo me on Etsy for details.  
By the way - this is a TenderFeetStitches Pattern & I am linking this post up to Sarahndipities "Make Something Monday" post.

I am thinking I had a pretty productive weekend.
