Dallas, here we come!

We are headed to Dallas today and I can't wait! I love love love my sister and brother in law. We love hanging out with them. Maddi has been on Spring Break all week and I am exhausted! I worked last night and was so thankful to get out of the house and do something productive! Also it was nice not to have a 5 year old follow you around. Everywhere. Talking non stop with no regard as to whether or not you're paying attention. However, she is one very awesome 5 year old. Her back tooth is bleeding right now (so she says) and she has stuffed several wadded up paper towels in her mouth.              ......

 I was so excited earlier when I found about 3/4 of a yard of fabric that Maddi and I picked up at an estate sale about 6 months ago. I had completely forgotten about it! I bought it thinking I would make pillows or something out of it. Not really sure. But when we found it today, Maddi loved it and wanted a shirt out of it! I thought it was short enough that I didn't have to cut it but it was a little long so we made it a dress instead of a shirt. It only took me about 45 minutes to sew. It's a very easy pattern! Email me if you want it! And the best part is.... The whole thing cost me $1 I love a good bargain! I hope to get a little M monogrammed on it soon. (Maybe then it won't look so much like a curtain?) :) Anyways, she loves it. That's all that matters, right?

One happy go lucky girl.
We love you!


  1. I'm not sure if the dress makes the boots or the boots make the dress. In either case MJ looks cute.
