What I Wore Wednesday

Rainy. Nasty. Cold. Wednesday. - But I still look good. Right? - Heading out the door.  A little shopping at Target {it's work related!} Perhaps a drink at Starbucks & grabbing a sweater for my lil' guy Jack.  Family pictures are long over due.  How typical of me... Mr. L says I always say we are late getting them done & getting the Christmas Letters sent out.  Well. Hmph.  As long as its out by the first week of December we are good right? Err.  Before Christmas? Maybe...

What I Wore Wednesday {da pugs yearly checkup}

Today has the potential to make me sweat. Panic. Get super angry. Feel bad. Or da pug will just be good. The vet will just do what she has to do & bot be a baby about it.  Da pug does not take kindly to being muzzled - as if he has a nose to muzzle.  Last year they drew out the process so ridiculously that we ended up having to put the cone on him just so that they could draw blood from him without him eating there arm off. He can be very ferocious.  So here's hoping...

In just a few years I have expanded the items I make and have sent lots of items all over the country and the world.

What I Wore Wednesday

Good Morning Lovelies. I am wrapping up a chevron camera bag, in aqua chevron this morning. That is if I can get my fingers to function. This freezing weather we are having this morning called for mittens. I didn't have my mittens. Then I stood out there even longer catching up with the neighboor. - Last night the first flurries of the season fell from the sky. It's way to early for this crap. {Maybe not for you northern-ers. But in NC. Yes.}  Heading out with my sister this morning to do a little shopping.  Not the fun kind either. Groceries.   Well - here is what I am wearing today, not that anyone will see it, I'll be bundled up under a couple layers of fleece & a scarf.

Striped Top Target. - Pink Pants by Indigo Reign - Black Ankle Boots by Soda
Happy Wednesday!

Emma's Room

Emmas room was this very blue when we moved in... only thing was it had spaceships, planets & stars all over the walls. Not particularly girl friendly. But the blue we can keep. Atleast for now... We downgraded her to a twin bed - being that she had a full & big brother, Cody is quickly growing out of his twin.  Emma didn't mind.  All she wanted was a canopy So a canopy she gets.  We didn't want to break the bank & go all out on a canopy bed that she will eventually hate in the teen years... so this $16 netting did the trick. Amazon.  You can find everything on there.   Also Codys room was girly & had a castle on the wall.  I carefully peeled it down & put it up in Emmas room.  I think the finished project looks fabulous.  What do you think?
