I though last weekend was my birthday treat but I was lucky enough to get another great weekend again! After all of the sewing I've been doing lately it was nice to be surprised with a special birthday date. Dylan and I had a wonderful dinner at Abuelo's In Chattanooga. It's really yummy and If you haven't signed up yet- go put your name in to receive their emails and they will send you free dinner certificate for your birthday and anniversary.

And while we were in Chattanooga- Dylan let me go on a Hobby Lobby shopping spree! Man- I could live in Hobby Lobby. He hates the place but I always dragging him around for an hour or two. ( = I found some really cute fabric and other crafty stuff.
I spent saturday sewing my heart out to make sure everything was ready for sundays photo shoot. Mom and Dad droped in on my sewing madness to wish me a happy birthday and deliver me a cute pair of PJ's and a yummy candle.
|btw isn't this stick figure girl cute?|
She's from Stickfigureson Zazzle.
I'm still working on editing photos- did I mention that we took a zillion of each outfit? I hope to get them edited and posted soon. Maybe I will enlist the help of my photographer friend to help me "edit out the shadows" as she put it- hint hint! ( =
|Isn't she cute? I'll have better photos soon- promise!|
I spent Monday night and Tuesday with my friends Meg & Ry. Poor Meg had to have last minute gallbladder surgery and her little Ry wasn't to happy about spending the night with out his mama! I'm not to much help on the baby side of things- since I'm pretty much clueless but we made it without Meg having to do a lot of baby lifting. Heck- we even made it though Walmart with a baby, a buggy, and 2 electric carts. HaHA!
Hope you get to feeling better soon Meg.

BUT on a better note- At least dr trip to Rome turned in to something fun. Dylan and I spent hours roaming around Barnes and Noble. They have a ton of sewing and crafting books right now- If only I could buy them all!
While I'm interested in crafts- Dylan's interested in weird stuff like this...
This is a book he picked up today and decided we had to have it. It's by the guy that wrote Fight Club and is a collection of gross short stories. I must admit though- I read a few pages of it and apart from being gross it's kinda enthralling. If you have a twisted sense of humor, like urban legends, and have a strong stomach... you might pick it up too. We'll post a review after we finish the book.
After a few hours our tummy drew us out of the bookstore and off to find a yummy lunch. After lunch we stopped by the store Tuesday Morning. Guess what? They have craft stuff! A killer prices! I got some really cute stuff and can't wait to find a clearance die cut machine there... They had the slice machine but it was still over $100 so I'm holding out for a store return. I'll find one soon... I have a feeling. ( =
Check out their website and sign up to get the scoop on what they are getting in stock next.

And.. That's a wrap of my week. Tomorrow Dylan goes back to work and I'm going to
force myself to clean up this mess of a house that I have turned in to a sewing factory this week.
I hope you all are having a lovely week!
