It's that time again!

These look seriously delicious, and I want some. Like right now.

I love this idea for the back of the car seat, since we have buckets and no center console.

My dream - to be able to sew this, and then wear it for Halloween. So pretty.

Super cute photo idea! I may have to try it this weekend, we both have iPhones.

I absolutely love this dress. It's flattering for just about any shape.

And this, made by a favorite seamstress of mine, GiannyL, could easily be adapted to look like the dress above. And super easy!

What are you pinning lately?

The vacation of my dreams

Well...almost. I admit that my ideal vacation would involve sleeping in, whereas if my toddler comes with me, that is pretty much impossible. But no way would I ever go to visit a beach like these without him! I can already see him splashing and screaming through that clear, warm water.

My dream - to sleep in a hammock in a shady spot of a gorgeous beach. Or maybe just sleep in a hammock.

In Croatia, there is this magnificence. I didn't even know Croatia had areas like this. Learn something new every day.

Greece. I would go just to take pictures of the homes built into the cliffsides like this. Though I'd really like to do more than that!

The California Redwoods both freak me out and fascinate me. So, incredibly, LARGE.

Yucatan. Oh, the WATER. Falling from the forest sky!

And of course...the Big Apple. Times Square at night, in particular. I have a friend that shot a long exposure of himself with a girl in the middle of the street of the square, and it is just brilliant. I would pay good money to recreate that shot.

Where would you like to go someday?

I have no idea what day it is.

This last week has been one of the hardest I have had in a long time. Do you ever have times like that? Where it just seems like every single thing that could go wrong, does, and life seems to just suck the energy out of you? This was definitely one of those weeks.

On Sunday I had a really hard time sleeping, so 4:30AM came WAY too early. Micah was a touch cranky and wouldn't let me take his pajamas off to get dressed, so we went to Lita and Tata's house in our jammies and a jacket.

Tuesday was ok. I stayed up later than I wanted because The River came on and my friend Emmet came over to watch it with me. If you watch the show, you'll know how funny it is that my friend is named Emmet, lol. Micah had a hard time sleeping for some reason and woke me up for milk twice. Then at 3:30am, Antonio came in and told me he was taking himself to the ER because he was short of breath, and had tightness and pain in his chest, with vomiting. No way was I allowing that, so Micah and I got up and got dressed and took him to the ER. Since I had the baby with me we stayed out in the waiting room while they did an xray and EKG on Antonio, then my dad came and got Micah and I was able to stay with my husband. We were there until 8am. Thankfully he's ok now, but needless to say, I missed work.

Wednesday I got up and got Micah dressed to go to my mom's, and right as I opened the car door, he threw up. Covered his jacket and pacifier clip. He got very upset, so I brought him back in the house, cleaned him up, and called in to work yet again because one of my co-workers had a stomach bug as well as her daughter the previous weekend. Micah's was pretty mild, but it was made worse every time he had milk so I stopped letting him have anything but water. He threw up only two more times, but he was very lethargic and spent the whole day on the couch with me. He was still sick the next morning, but my dad kept him so I could go back to work. Now he has really bad congestion and a runny nose so he's a tad clingy, very sensitive and cries about everything, and just wants to laze about all day. Hopefully that will clear up in a day or two.

On top of all this, I had two projects friends of mine commissioned me to sew for them. Neither turned out exactly like I wanted, but they are still cute and they will be getting shipped out in the morning...hopefully. One was a set of toddler bed sheets and one was a set of soft baby boots. The former ended up with too-short elastic, the latter with wonky seams and strange velcro placement. I'm planning another post about the boots, but here's a bad Instagram photo.

I also have a half-finished hoodie I've been working on in bits and pieces for Micah for weeks, and I've reached a point in the pattern where I'm confused, so I'm letting it marinate a bit. Hopefully next weekend I will have a bit of free time.

I'm finding that now that I'm working, I just don't have the time or energy to do much of anything. Tragic, really, since I now have the funds to do them! Maybe when it's summer and the sun is out longer I'll have more drive.
