Miscellany Monday

Happy Monday! I absolutely cannot believe it's Monday~ we never stopped to breathe this weekend! Random is exactly what I've got this morning, so it's fitting to link up with Carissa.

{one} Remy's soccer game was, in a word, amusing. Our little guy is not quite the aggressive soccer player he claims to be while in the backyard. Usually with preschool soccer, where the ball goes the pack goes. But not our Remy... he's a non-conformist. He chose to tip-toe behind the group, doing the chicken dance and examining his awesome cleats. Go Number 10!!

{two} I am so thankful to be suddenly swamped with orders! Three of our students have commissioned me to make Homecoming dresses, and I am busy with fabric shopping and fittings and all that goes along with that. I'm so not used to sewing for full-size people, and I feel so much pressure to make these dresses perfect. Originally they weren't supposed to need the dresses until January, and then last week the school suddenly bumped up the date to September 25th~ Ahh! Things in the new shop are also going great, and I am loving this little surge before the holidays get going... blessed!

{three}This picture of Rem with his viking gear is his official "First Day of School'" picture. A boy must have his shield, evidently, and I didn't push it further than that (we weren't in the car yet!). He is loving school so far. Among the highlights are that they are learning extensively about trains, and there is a set of twins in his class. This is apparently the most amazing thing Remy and his classmates have ever seen!

{four}I am singing in a few weddings next month and am in search of the perfect dress. I have been scouring mainly vintage sites, but I'm terrified that I won't end up liking what I pick. I'm kind of in love with this one, but I just can't commit. I am also on the lookout for some great tall boots for fall & winter. I hate buying anything for myself~ is it just me?!

Hope y'all had a great weekend! See you soon!


  1. Keegan decided he didn't want to play soccer this season. A little sad about it, but nice not having to run around on Saturday morning. Not sure what we'll try to turn him on to next. Congrats on all the orders! Mine will be coming soon, I promise. Have a few other things taking precedence over Presley's wardrobe. I hate shopping for myself. i'd rather spend it on the kids. Have a great day, Mandy!

  2. little kids soccer games are just so cute! they look like a little group of bees following and circling the ball.

  4. Wow you are super busy! Remy is such a precious little soccer player. Stopping by for the first time from Misc. Monday. Have a wonderful week!

  5. little ones soccer games are so cute. thanks for sharing all the pics. have a great week.

  6. That's too cute about your little soccer player. My kids never really got into sports too much. They all now play instruments and sing on worship teams. I don't think I would be a good "sports mom" if I had to work all day. That's terrific about your sewing orders. Rem and his viking gear. Too precious! Happy Monday!


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