Sunday Sew Love: 9 November

Our boxes are almost all unpacked (just a few left!!! ok, maybe 7 or so, but still… getting much closer) :) And I finished setting up my sewing machine today so I know what I’ll be doing over the next few days (yay!). Also need to check in at my new work tomorrow… make sure I’m all good to go there and get some other odds and ends done now that we’re sort of almost settled (like getting new car registration and a new license and such…) :/ Oh, and here’s a picture of my new little nephew… just because he is crazy adorable. :) We did a little photo shoot the other day. He made it just in time to be a Halloween baby… I imagine he will probably either love or hate his birthday being on Halloween. I’m not sure how I’d feel about it. Until …

Sometimes I shouldn’t be allowed to help with things…

So Danny has been going around the house fixing all of our blinds. They were reminiscent of this (or this or this). lol The’re the basic white blinds you can get at any home store for cheap… so yes, nothing crazy to replace, but he decided to go ahead and fix them since the renters hadn’t shortened any of them to fit the windows so they had plenty of extra rails (I feel like I’m not explaining this very well… this is what I’m talking about) lol so anyway… the other day, he fixed one of the ones in the bedroom and then the pups ran in there and messed up what he’d just fixed and he got frustrated. That’s how they all got messed up in the first place — pups love to look out windows :/ So after he fixed the nice big window downstairs, I was like “you should really pull up the shade so they can’t mess it up after you put in all that time to fix it.” Here I …

Sunday Sew Love: 19 October

I keep seeing them everywhere and they are so adorable! Also came across the Perfect Pattern Parcel #6 from Lindsay’s last post… check! purchased! :) I’ve been eyeing both the Hudson Pant and the Julia Cardigan for a while, so this is the perfect opportunity! Also learned that Love at First Stitch is now available to order in the U.S. I will definitely be purchasing as soon as we’re in the new house… and/or putting it on my Christmas list :) we’ll see… Only 2 more weeks in Wyoming! Said goodbye to our stuff this week! See you on the flipside, boxes! :) The above picture plus an air mattress is the extent of our furniture right now :/ Finn was very  upset about the whole situation… but as you can see Zoe …

TayloRx

Okay okay… I gotta take a quick minute and share my friend Taylor’s music video. She is one of the sweetest and smartest people I know (graduated in the top of our pharmacy class!)… she’s also beautiful and super talented and following her dreams in the music world. She just came out with her first music video. Check it out: Find more about Taylor here. So they packed up our house today! We’ll be living in a sea of boxes until next week when we’ll be living very minimally :/ The pups went to doggie daycare today while the packing guys were here. When we picked them up, they were separated from all the other dogs. The girl working said Zoe was a little grumpy with a few of the dogs. She said that she seems to choose the older, overweight dogs to be friends with and is grumpy with the rest of them. lol oh dear… my sweet little baby. I’m just crossing my fingers that she gets along with all of her new puppy …

No Motrin No Mission

Meet my pharmacy staff! We recently had t-shirts printed for the pharmacy. Here’s part of what we included on the back, along with the phrase “No Motrin No Mission” :)     I’m sure you can guess which one is me. Oh my goodness, though, they all crack me up.  Tomorrow I have a pre-move home inspection. Basically, they are coming to the house to see what sort of packing materials they’re going to need to bring and what large items they’ll need to pack, etc, etc. It’s all getting very real. We’ll be moving in a couple of months. I’m so excited and yet a little nervous. Getting a license in CA is a nightmare; they finally got back to me after 3 months of waiting to tell me I’m missing something the application specifically says I do not need. And they are impossible to get a hold of. Oh, the fun. Once that part is over, though, I think it will be smooth sailing. I’m going to miss my coworkers here (I mean look …
