It's all about me

This weekend, life is all about me. Yep, me. M watched lots of TV this morning. Well, she doesn't actually WATCH TV, but I did leave lots of cartoons on instead of turning the TV off. She would watch for a few minutes, chat with me, play with her toys, watch TV, etc.

I don't really have a good reason to declare this Natalie's weekend other than I just decided that's the way I want it. My goals this weekend are to:
1.) Finish M's b'day invitations. (Check! See pics below! They turned out AWESOME!)
2.) Sew, sew, sew
M's b'day outfit
M's UGA outfit to wear when she and daddy watch the dawgs play
One more pair of pants for M for the fall

So, M spent lots of time coloring beside me today. You know the saying, "Many hands make light work?" Yeah, not so much at the Benson dining room table today. Many hands meant more work for Momma.

But we had so much fun together.

Tomorrow might involve more TV cartoons, more coloring, but LOTS of sewing for Mommy. And several cute outfits for M. I'll post pictures tomorrow.

I hope you're having as great a weekend as we are.

Well good for making it about you. Well-deserved, but it sounds like you're cheating and sharing. :)

Those invitations are fabulous. You are so creative and talented. Sounds like M is following in your footsteps.

BTW, the "package" will be mailed Monday. I've had my head in the toilet for a couple of days. Sorry, TMI.

I LOVE those invitations. How could you ever take them off the fridge once you'd received them?

Hope your sewing is going well. I have just about had it with gypsy waistcoats and sewing with sateen (frays something shocking). Looking forward to seeing some shots of your work!
