to and fro

My brain is in a total state of overload. Tell me you have been there before :) I have been having so much fun this summer and keeping myself busy that I can't keep up. So, I have decided to dedicate this week to fill you guys in on what's been happening over here.

I have taken way too many pictures of all the events (what's new, right), so I will have to post them on for you to view. You can click the Flickr link on my sidebar to see all the pictures. may find yourself laughing at a few candid shots! I'll try to have them all uploaded today (fingers crossed).

OK, so let me back up. Hmmmmm, where do I begin? Well, I guess you all saw the picture that I posted in my last post. Lets start there, that was my crazy husband and my Dad taking my girls out for a spin. They had a great time, I even got in with Tommy behind the wheel. How scary is that!!!

Let's see...oh, you're gonna love this. I had a girls night out with my cousin Kimberly (love ya girl!). She invited me to explore my creative side with her at a place called Wired and Fired. Let me just tell you, it totally ROCKED!!! We saw tons of cool things on our adventure shopping at side street shops, eating (indulging) Ben & Jerry's ice cream and enjoying a quiet meal at an upscale Thai restaurant. I had a marvelous time and can't wait to do it again!!

I have also been able to catch up on a few sewing projects lately. One has been Modkid's Kyoko shirt/dress pattern. It turned out great. I can't decide it I will post it in my Etsy shop or keep it for Bryar. It's so stinkin' cute! I also made a couple more apron dresses and I am working on a tutu for a friend of mine (Hi Jessica!). Her daughter is as prissy as they come (I love that about little girls) so I am sure she will be all smiles when her mommy gives her a pink tutu to priss around in - LOL I also have made some baby shower gifts and I even made me a skirt...I know, pretty crazy huh!

OK, you're probable getting bored with reading this by now but I warned you there was way too much going on. I'll be quick with the rest (wink). Here goes...we went to Stone Mountain (that was a blast in more than one way), we went to Atlantic Station for an outdoor market, we have a gourd vine growing and taking over the yard, we had a family night enjoying music on the square and we've celebrated graduations and had a wonderful Father's Day weekend. My kids are off to camp this week. Bryar's first day of camp will be Tuesady - wish us both luck!

So, there you have it and now you know why this week will be dedicated to playing catch up. I love summer fun and I love my family. I hope you all are getting a chance to have some family fun enjoying the summer.

Looks like so much fun Heather!!! What a fun cousin you have to hang out with, too! Ben and Jerry's would be my preference as well!
