Sunday Lately: Week 121

Sunday Lately is a weekly linkup hosted by the Blogger Tribe, led by Katy (Wild & Wanderful) and Angelica (Gardening in High Heels).  We e-hangout every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the past week of life in our own worlds. 

This week's themes: Laughing, Suggesting, Reminding, Embracing, Creating.

Laughing:  I'm always laughing at the silly things my boys say. Little kid speech and phrases are just so funny! Roman (18 months) is blabbing more and more actual short phrases and it's just the cutest! "Whatchu talkin' 'bout, Ro? Whatchu talkin' 'bout!?", my two year-old demanded of him this week.   

Suggesting: Lipsense, The Path (on Hulu), Cameron's Southern Pecan coffee, cucumber vodka (for me), Crayola Bath Color Tablets (for the kids), stripe and floral combos . . . these are my favorite things lately!

Reminding: Reminding myself to put away the winter gear (Yay!) and update everyone's closets! Out with the cold, in with the warm. I say this as Saturday's high was in the 60's and Sunday's highs are set to be in the 30's and it's SNOWING right now. April (snow)showers bring May flowers, right?. 

Embracing: I'm embracing my newfound Friday mornings! For two and half years, I've been working a few hours a week at the Kid's Club at our YMCA. I was down to only working Friday mornings, but I finally quit. I am SO happy to be done and have one less thing to run around and do with my kids. I totally embraced the extra time this week-- Grant and I made muffins, we all played outside, I got some sewing photography done, and we took the dog for a walk (it was gorgeously sunny!), all before 10:00.  At the start of the year, I had three things that I wanted to quit, and this was the last one to cross of my list. Sometimes you just know when it's time to move on!

em·brace /əmˈbrās/ verb 1. hold (someone) closely in one's arms, especially as a sign of affection. 2. accept or support (a belief, theory, or change) willingly and enthusiastically.

Creating: Ooo, this week I was creating some pretty awesome swimsuits! I can't wait to share them with you tomorrow! That's the bummer about pattern testing-- so much sewing that I'm excited about sharing, but I have to wait until the official release.  
I also made an awesome Edgy Top this week, to promote this cotton Lycra for Love Adore Knit Fabrics. It's made up of most of the spring Pantones-- perfect bright and happy sewing! 

I also created this shirt for little man Grant on Friday (digital cut file courtesy of Thread and Grain). He's becoming quite the model for his momma! 

Can every week have "create" as a prompt word? Because that one was easy! ;)
