Weekly Update

1. So, so glad to be home. It's funny how even my parents' home doesn't feel like home anymore. I lived there only 5 years ago! I don't think of myself as all that particular. My house gets messy like anyone's. But I guess I do have it very organized and efficient. And I like it that way. If something doesn't work where it is, I move it. If something in a closet hasn't been used in a long time, it gets sold or put in the garage. Everything has a specific place where it belongs, even though it may not be there all the time. :) Interesting things to learn about myself.

2. Had a final fitting Saturday and it went great! I put soooo much time and energy into that one, to get it just perfect for her, and it paid off. Felt really good. And we were able to talk through some of the business issues and figure out answers that I think will work. The discouragement was just temporary. :) One more final tonight, and then we're on to dresses for June weddings!

3. Over the weekend I bought a gluten free sugar cookie mix, with vanilla icing and chocolate sprinkles. Oh, they were so good! We never eat anything like that anymore, and Hannah's nose is running today, but yum...

4. It's snowing. Again. I am soooo ready for warm weather. Please?

5. There's a Just Between Friends sale on Friday and I have coupons for free admission. Anyone want to go?

6. There's also an open house thingy this weekend in a Victorian house downtown where this woman sells her calligraphy. It's pretty and girly and fancy. Anyone want to go? You get a calligraphy piece - a poem or quote - for free when you go.

Better go put my house back together. We're running on a late schedule today - Hannah was up part of the night and didn't wake up till 10! Have a great week...


  1. Isn't interesting how much we grow and change as people in our 20's and 30's. I had a similar experience when I visited my mom last winter. I am very particular about clutter, bathroom and kitchen cleaning, and vacumming. My mom is not much of a housekeeper, I found myself cringing and wanting to throw things away all week long. I've come to the realization that I probably will never stay overnight there again. To much dust and cat hair--I couldn't breathe all week.
    I just have a set way of doing things that I like.

    man this is a rambling comment

  2. i will totally go with you this weekend. seriously. when?

  4. I can totally relate to #1...amazing how much everything changes, huh? Glad all is well with Maeve. I'll have to check out the new gown on the site when I get a chance. :o)

  5. yes, seriously. saturday 1 or 2ish works fine. let me the know the details when we get closer, but i won't plan anything during that time :)
