Monday Random

Good Monday morning! We are just back from the grocery store. I am staring in slight disgust at the first item you see here. Each shopping trip I allow the littles to choose one thing as a treat (or rather, Remy chooses and Halle goes along with...), and EVERY TIME Remy chooses Lunchables. They are practically against my religion! Processed meat, cheese, crackers/bread, with some sort of candy all conveniently packaged in plastic. Heaps of plastic. I guess the reason he picks these is because it is something I wouldn't ordinarily get, and to see his reaction is like seeing a child at Disney World. So I destroy their bodies and the environment, but they are so happy. Does that make me a bad mom?

We had a good weekend. Lots of silly (as usual) around here. Here are a few shots of the 'sweet things'.

This is Halle modeling some of her new clippies from Crafty Mama Designs on etsy. They are the most adorable things! You can check out her shop here, and watch my blog because Aviva, the designer, will be hosting a giveaway here in November!

I am also excited to show you this lovely necklace for two reasons~ 1. Because I won it, and I never win anything, and 2. Because it is so pretty! Holly at Her Southern Heart was hosting a giveaway from etsy seller, VCards12, a few weeks ago, and I was thrilled to win! It is hand-stamped with Remy's and Halle's initials. I was going to take a picture of it on, but we all know how much I love having my picture taken... so I laid it on a Nordstrom box. What doesn't look good on a box from Nordstrom?!

And for the last, but certainly not least, bit of random-ness this morning I thought I would post a few pictures of a lovely custom dress I finished up this weekend. The body fabric is dark brown with white dots, and the trim is white cotton. I think it turned out so cute and was excited to mail it out this morning!


  1. I'm not a fan of lunchables either - but if it's just one treat per shopping trip...

  2. Very cute dress!

    I'm loving that necklace, and I'm so glad you like it!

  3. Such a sweet dress! And that necklace is lovely.


I love to hear what you have to say~ Thanks for leaving your mark!
