Sunday Lately :: Week 133

Jul 16, 2017

 

Sunday Lately is a weekly linkup hosted by the Blogger Tribe, which is fearlessly led by Angelica (Gardening in High Heels) and myself. We e-hangout every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the past week of life in our own worlds. We’d love if you could join us!

This week’s themes: Hitting, Ending, Sensing, Handling, Shining

 

Hitting. A new age this week.  Wednesday, I rang in my 32nd birthday and we celebrated having me try to avoid work as much as possible.  We went to the pool, I got to sew a couple of things for fun, and we went to Later Alligator (one of our favorite restaurants) to watch a mini-concert and have some dinner and drinks with friends.  It was a delightful day for sure.

Ending. The waiting game and receiving my Cricut supplies!!  Yay!  I’ve been invited to be part of a sewing bloggers tour with Cricut and I am SO EXCITED.  They sent me a machine and a bunch of heat transfer vinyl and I’ll be sharing a DIY project soon.  Keep an eye out for the tour!  It’s going to be such a fun, creative tour to follow!

Sensing. That I’m going to have to be put in a Popcorn Anonymous program soon.  No joke.  We bought an air popper on the 3rd of this month and I swear we’ve had popcorn almost every night since.  Whoops.

Handling. The news that our nephew has to end his visit with us today.  Such a bummer, because it’s been so great to have him here.  Jackson is hysterical and spending time with him has been so good.  I wish Washington was closer so we got to see our West Coast family more often.  But I’m so happy that we got a full day with this smart and sarcastic teenager yesterday.

Shining. Some light on this pattern that I’ve been trying to draft.  I applaud designers, man.  It’s no joke to be drafting things to be wearable.  I’ve learned so much from this experience.  Can’t wait until I can share it!
