Sunday Lately: Week 119

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: Mending, Beginning, Doodling, Musing, Applauding

Mending: I had an awesome night this week mending my need for some quality "me" time-- both alone time and time with friends. I got to make a quick shopping run all by myself and then attend a ladies paint night. How fun is that?! I even managed a little bit of extra time with two of my absolute favorites. That type of stuff does my heart good.  

Beginning: This week, Mike and I began a new role-- landlords. Yikes! We closed on a duplex on Friday. I'm a little nervous about it, but we'll see how it goes. Three minutes there this afternoon gave me flashbacks to all the stress we had when we fixed up our current house. How do those Flip or Flop Fixer Upper couples do it on HGTV?! They always seem so sunshiny! (I'll tell you how they do it: hired help. How much are those people actually fixing themselves? Like, none. Mike, meanwhile, would rather pull his own teeth than hire anything out. Thus, the stress.)

Doodling: Oh, my goodness, I wish I would have saved you my doodles! I'm not usually a doodler, but I was planning a shirt this week to screen print (you'll see a blog post all about it this upcoming week!), and I doodled out about 15 brandy old-fashioneds, haha! I finally got it perfect, and then I used that model to design it out on the computer. Actually, now that I think of it, I'm glad I didn't save them to show you, because some of them were pretty embarrassing. Want to see the finished product? Not too bad for my first go around. 

Musing: Musing over my fabric purchases from the week!  I'm basically always contemplating fabric and pattern ideas, and what I should make next. I have lots of swim fabric coming and I'm excited to try out some new swim suit patterns. Let me show you this gorgeous fabric I got from Sincerely Rylee this week. I loved this box; it's a little bit of everything: chiffon, rayon, ity, sweater knit, Liverpool, cotton lycra. I have so much fun planned for it! 

Applauding:  Ha! I'll tell you who I'm applauding: the good people at H & R Block. Tax Day is coming, my friends. Don't forget!
