Hoping you all have a wonderful day tomorrow (or weekend, for that matter!). DD made me some wonderful gifts (I shared one of the pictures with you last week) and I got another one yesterday...
Yes, I am 34 (well, 35... but who's counting?).
No, I am not 20 ft tall.
While I do like broccoli & carrots, I wouldn't call them my favorite (unless I'm trying to get the kids to try some... "Mmmmm, these vegetables are just delicious! Better than chocolate!")
You already know I love to sew (does my kid know me, or what?)
Yes, we do like to play (her favorite is "Shoe Store", when she is the clerk and I am the shopper, and she helps me try on my own shoes and then demands cash.)
...and Yes, I absolutely love her! She is funny, smart, stubborn, sensitive, silly, caring... a perfect mix of DH and I. Her brother is also a perfect mix of our genes, but possesses all the traits absent in DD. He sleeps in, she's an early riser. She likes egges, he hates them. She's blonde with brown eyes, he's brunette with blue eyes. I am so blessed to have 2 wonderful, healthy, happy kids, and that's gift enough for me. DH: are you reading this? No gifts tomorrow! NYC in 3 months!
Prom was Thursday night, and attending by 450 students. It was great to see all the kids dressed up, and I was really surprised by all the different styles of dresses. Short, long, solids, prints, fitted, ball gowns... and every color of the rainbow. Here are a few pictures of my dress on the girl, and it was very sweet of her date (also my student) to say, "Ms. B, she looks amazing. You did an awesome job on her dress."
As for me and sewing this weekend, I don't foresee much productivity. That evil sore throat bug made a U-turn, and found me! I'm heading to the pharmacy for an antibiotic and I'll probably just pre-wash some cottons for DH's spring/summer shirts and layout DD's next spring outfit. I'm feeling more like being horizontal today, than vertical! Did I mention that it's raining (again)???
Oh, one more thing... Did you watch "The Fashion Show" on Bravo Thursday night? I made it through the first half-hour, then fell asleep sitting up. I'm a die-hard Project Runway girl (own the first 4 seasons on DVD!), and just felt like I was cheating on my best friend. It's looks interesting (I'd never be able to make a little black dress out of a t-shirt!), but I'm not dying to see the next one. I'm really looking forward to August 20 and the 6th season of PR on Lifetime much more!
Hope you all have a great (productive) weekend!
