Thanks so much for all the advice on cutting down on internet time. Now all I have to do it work on it, because, you know what, I haven’t. As soon as I gave myself the pass to get back online on Tuesdays I forgot about decreasing my Internet time. D’oh! Well, at least I have some great tips to work with so at least there’s that. Thanks again for those who chimed in.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that… we (meaning me. Hubbie is really afraid of flying with a toddler…toddler…what?!!) are super excited about our trip to New York. Excited about seeing family and celebrating our son’s birthday, but you know what’s not exciting? All the impending snow. I mean, really? Can the country get a break? I’m asking local mommy friends if I can borrow a snowsuit because we don’t have one. It feels silly to buy one to wear for a handful of days. Fingers crossed we find one.
One of the things I miss the most of living in NYC is the access to inexpensive haircuts. I’m talking $25 for a wash, cut, and style. Yup. I am so looking forward to cutting my hairs off. I haven’t had a haircut since I was six months pregnant. I am long overdue for a change.
I’ve been debating going for a super short ‘do. I’m finding it harder and harder to find the time to style my hair. Something short and sassy would be awesome. I *think* I can pull off a short ‘do. If not, that’s what headbands are for I’m gonna go for it! Here’s a picture of what I’m considering (and feel free to tell me if you think I’m bananas).
That’s about it. My life is pretty much full of the same ‘ole same ‘ole. I made a bit of headway with my son’s wearable muslin. I’m enjoying taking my time with the shirt-making process and really paying attention to the small details. I decided on the muslin to test out all the new-to-me techniques: plackets and edge-stitching. But now I wish I made the shirts in an assemble line. I might have to pull a mini sewing marathon Sunday and put his birthday shirt together.
And that’s it for now. I’m looking forward to sharing our trip home with y’all. Maybe I will be able to tell you all about the warm sun and rainbows we experienced. Yes? Yes. Here’s hoping!
