Make It Monday

Pretty excited gals.  A guest blogger - perfect. Yes.  All I have to do is copy & paste.  But, because I didn't want to leave you all hanging ... AND who doesn't love cookies I did my homework too & made them for my family this weekend.  Yumm-o.

 As you can see Miss Emma was happy as could be helping momma in the kitchen.

Wait no more, meet Bethany!

Besides baking Bethany has some talent.  Check out her etsy shop for sure, I am loving her creations.  Especially the topiarys.  Such cuteness.

Now head over to her blog & get baking on Make It Monday.  I added some extra lemon zest to mine.  Cause its summer & I just plain ol' love me some lemon.  A big thank you to Bethany for sharing.

What I Wore Wednesday

Can you even tell that I feel like completely craptastic today? Yeah. Probably not. I hide it well - I am good like that. We made it 1 week thru kindergarten before the sicknesses appeared. I am not surprised. Germy Kids. ha.

 Top:  Brown Tank with metal gemmed {er some shit} bibbed front.  Khols.  A gift from my lil' sis.
Bottoms:  Navy Mini Skirt - the Gap.  Sandals - by Candies from Khols.

Keeping it short & sweet this week.  Cause I feel so lovely today.  
Linkin' it all up with the fantastically amazing Pleated Poppy.

Weekend RePlay

My weekend was full of productivity. By Saturday at noon we already had the oil changed in the car & parts on the way for whatever is wrong with it. I checked out of the convo at the price. ha. The lawn mowed, packages shipped, & grocery shopping done. Amazing how much you can get done on a Saturday morning when you don't sleep in. ha.  

Sunday we did the typical library thing, got starbucks. Of course. Then stopped in at home depot. Ok. I am bad in that store. I want one of everything. But I typically walk out with - nothing. Not this time. A weed eater, a shower door & a spur of the moment bathroom vanity that was too good of a deal to pass up. Yep. Mr. L has lots of work ahead of him. Yah, well maybe I do. He isn't the handiest of husbands, he will be the first to admit it. Sunday morning I finished up these to custom projects & shipped them both out this morning. Kids were totally jealous of that monster pillow some lil' guy will have to cuddle with at night. I am thinking a good Christmas gift for my lil' ones. mhmm. Well Mr. L is home today & we are already working on the shower door. Plus we have to go do whatever that is that is going to cost about $300 over at the auto place done too. First - coffee. And food.

What I Wore Wednesday

Its Wednesday.  Already.  Only?  I am not sure how I feel this week.  Now that all three of my littles are in school I have been getting so much done & the mornings feel like they last - forever.  I am not complaining.  My {Ready To Ship Friday} basket of goodies is FULL.  And it has been since Monday afternoon.  Amazing right?  You are totally going to want to stop by our facebook page on Friday morning to check out all the goodies.  There might be a few stuffed friends in there.   -  Um, yesterday I managed to make 6 pillowcase dresses start to finish.  Unreal.  Today I have cleaned all the bathrooms.  Laundry is caught up & the dishwasher is running.  Plus I even squeezed in some me time on the couch with a cup of coffee.  Oh.  And I used my samples from Jamberry Nails.  They are so cute.  I might just have to think about getting some. mmhmm.  - They so match my coffee mug. What do you think?

Top:  Strip Tank with braided "rope" neckline & straps.  
Forever XXI.

Bottom:  Flare Jeans - the Gap.
Shoes by Rock & Candy from Rack Room.

**Side note:  See that photo with the super blurred background up there?  I may have gotten that effect by spinning in a circle.  Try it.

You know it.  I am linking up to The Pleated Poppy.  You do the same.

Weekend RePlay

What a weekend. Started it off with a pre op appointment for Miss Emma on Friday.  All is well.  Healthy as a horse.  {"But mom horses aren't healthy."}  Not sure why they think that.  But. Ok.  Everything is set & ready for her dental surgery on August 28th.  Doesn't mean I am ready.  But, apparently her body is OK for it.  eeek.  Lunch out with momma & dad for Emma & then  it was off to find out Miss Emmas teacher, Mrs. B.  We are excited for a new school year.   And its official - I am a stay at home mom. With no kids at home. ha. Amazing. How did this happen? Where did the time go? Well I am excited & super happy that I have my business to keep me busy. Maybe one of these days I will do a complete full house clean up & then there will be no messes. Ok. Thats funny. Yeah. Right.

Saturday we went on the trail.  Dad & boys went for a run.  Miss Emma & I fed the turtles.  They were starving.  Even took the pug along.  But.  Forgot the camera.  Eh.

Sunday we went to Shayna's 5th Birthday Party.  It was a pool party.  Squeezed it in between the rain showers.  The kids had fun in the pool.  Pizza & Cupcakes.  Yumm.   Erika did an awesome job on those cupcakes.  Such a cute idea to go along with the pool party theme.

 Hope you had a great weekend & a chance to relax.  Its week two of school here & Emmas first full week.  Plus add in the start to another baseball season.  Things are about to get crazy.

Emmas First Day: 2012-2013

Emmas First Day of Kindergarten.

 Ain't she just as cute as a button?  All the teachers & parents thought so too.  Just like Jack she steals the show with those long lashes & chubby pinchalicious cheeks. ha.  Of course she is wearing a Mommy made BB&CP dress on her first day.   She was pretty proud of it too.  --  No tears upon leaving Momma.  What a big girl {even if her back pack is bigger then her!}  Upon getting back to the school for pick up she was more concerned about not finishing her artwork then coming home.  Sounds like it went well.  Win. -- Hopefully we can keep that positive love for school till Monday  forever.
