Another week gone by, and I haven't even done a post this week. Its been crazy here. Some sort of stomach bug going through the house. YUCK. I am trying to do major catch up on sewing here! Down to 9 open orders. Go Me! ha. So here we go... another WIWW.

Bottoms:  Skinny jeans. {gasp} from Forver21 - Flats from Target.  <3 me="me" nbsp="nbsp" p="p" some="some" target.="target.">Um, even my phone matches today.  Gave into the smart phone world.  Samsung Galaxy III.

Off to run errands in town.  And lunch. Hopefully.

What I Wore Wednesday

Its so stinkin' nice out today. Actually a little on the chilly side this morning.  Really making me crave a pumpkin latte. Have I mentioned, I love fall?   Oh.  I have?  Just finished up a morning walk with Mr. L & da pug.  Da pug barely made it home.  He is taking a nice long nap now.  Time to get cutting & I am hoping for lunch out with Mr. L - of course he doesn't know that yet... Happy Wednesday.

 Top:  Jockey Tank with a Striped Sweater from Old Navy.  I think I like it. 

Bottom:  Jeans by SOHO from Khols.  And I broke out the clogs, from Target.  I love them for fall days when the morning grass is all wet.

What I Wore Wednesday

Today I've been sitting behind the machine in my yoga pants all day working away. I am trying to get 16 zipper pouches done & currently I am hiding from the kirby sales men. So annoying. I own a kirby. Don't come back. Keep an inventory of this shit. ugh. Anyways - I finally just got dressed for the day here we go...

 Top:  It was once a dress, from Old Navy.  
I guess it shrunk? 
Bottoms:  Khaki Olive shorts from Old Navy & my current fave comfy shoe from Rack Room.
 I am totally loving this top - I wear it all too frequently.  Its so comfy & the smocking around the top has a pretty look to it.  Don't you agree?   As always, linking up with The Pleated Poppy.  I am out the door to deliver a package & get some baseball gear.  Mr. L is assisting in the coaching process this season & we are in some dire need of hitting practice with these lil' 8 to 9 year old... Enjoy your Wednesday.

Weekend RePlay

What a flash of a weekend. Saturday I spent so much time behind the machine. But for some crazy reason Mr. L thought Miss Emma & I should go get our hair cut. {We have been talking about it for weeks...}  So we did!  I ended up cutting off all 11 extra inches I had for my fifth time donating to locks of love.  Of course Saturday night involved FOOTBALL!   Boomer Sooner.  Check out the custom chevron tote I whipped up!  Even has a zipper.  Go Me.  What do you think of the new cut?  I am sorta liking it with the headwraps I make. 

 Morning Coffee - Typical morning.  Snuggling with Emma & Jack.  My little sleep in undies.   So don't mind the topless look.  They are so silly.

 Sunday - today is going to involve the library & I am determined to get my hands on a pumpkin spice latte.
Hope your weekend rocked your socks off!

Weekend RePlay

Oh long weekends how I love & hate you so. Anyone else with me on this? I think yay an extra day to the weekend, then about five minutes after the kids walk in the door from school I think oh gosh... an extra day of CRAZY. Yep. Crazy. My kids drive me crazy. I said it.

 The whole weekend was a blur - Sunday felt like second Saturday, while Monday felt like second Sunday. Now we are working on second Monday. ha.  At-least its Tuesday or AHH.  Its already Tuesday.  Thats more like how I feel.  Tonight we have our first baseball game for Cody's new fall ball team.  I am counting on a loss.  But I am hoping for a win.

 I did lots of sewing. Trying to play catch up from last weeks craziness of Emmas dental surgery on Tuesday & Mr. L's job change. We did manage to organize the bedroom to have a little nook for him to work from & we got a new printer so we can print remotely to the office. Yes. Success. Sold several big items on craigslist. We still really need to have a yard sale OR better yet just go do a mass donation and write it all off at tax time. Either way the shed has got to be cleaned out, before the holidays get here.

 Candy Corn Skirts, Totes & Large Wallets all went through my machine this weekend.  I can't believe how cute that candy corn skirt is.  The cuteness is killing me.
Saturday morning Cody & I spent a couple hours on this math project.  He is super proud of it. It has parallel roads, perpendicular roads, quadrilateral building & other polygon shaped buildings.  Hoping for a good grade on this one.  Next on my to do list with Cody is a book report.  Didn't realize third grade was so rough.  While I love teaching & creating with my kids - what are they doing at school?  Yeah.  Don't even get me started on that.  I am about to pull my kids and go for homeschool.  ha.  If I thought I could keep my sanity.  Mommy needs quiet time.

Back to the machine. Hope you had a lovely long weekend.
