Sunday Lately :: Week 153

Dec 3, 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: Browsing, Moving, Practicing, Racing, Soothing.

Browsing. Amazon and Target and Etsy and trying to pull inspiration for Christmas gifts.  Because holy shit, it’s December.

Moving. At a much faster pace than normal, because I have to.  Taking a week off for Thanksgiving is wonderful, until I get home and realize how much work I have to do.  Black Friday sales were great for business, but I had to do a lot of overtime to get things finished!  Whew.  Good thing my boss lets me drink on the job.  (She’s a hardass but generally pretty lax about other things, haha.)

 

Practicing. My Star Wars + sewing skills and knocked out one of my favorite pieces to-date.  I created Lou’s new winter jacket by making him a Boba Fett-esque jacket to rock all season long.  I’m dead over it.  It’s so cute.  I want one for myself.

Racing. Into JoAnns this week to use up all of my coupons on things I’ve been eyeballing for a while.  Like this ridiculously large cutting mat that I scored for only $28.  Woot!

Soothing. My obsessive love for Christmas music by turning up the tunes!  December 1st was my official listening day — I told myself I needed to wait this year.  But now that it’s here, *NSync’s Christmas album will be played 23094823098423908423408 times until Christmas day.  Yaaaaaas.

    I’m impressed you waited until Dec 1st for the music! I did better this year, and held on until Nov 12th…but usually I’m busting out the Christmas albums by July!!! #dedicated lol

    It’s been too warm outside for me to really get into the Christmas
    spirit. The days seem to fly by and I’m never quite prepared like I
    used to be! July? Haha. That IS some dedication!

    That jacket! WOW! Love it! My sewing goal for 2018 is to create more ‘original’ items (like your jacket) – maybe even try quilting! Oh, and I LOVE Christmas music, too – it makes me happy! Merry Christmas!

      I love the idea of making quilts but I know my limitations…I have Makers A.D.D. If it takes longer than a day or two, I probably will set it aside to make something else and never get back to it. But I do drool over all of the quilts that i see in my IG newsfeed all the time!
