lobsters 'n cutlery

Today when my work shift ended, I was greeted by the ever-so-lovely Kaelah for a coffee + cake date and a catch-up session (let's be real, we talked about boys and TV shows.) The day I returned from my week in Seattle was the day she left for Chicago for a few days.... needless to say, I was bummed! But now we're back in the same town and I can be a creepy stalker again. Yay!

After the caffeine jolt she remembered that she had heard something about the local swanky fabric store having a storewide 40% off sale (seriously, they have the best novelty patterns ever and I NEED EVERY HEINOUS THING. Novelty prints are my CRACK.) Of course it had to be checked out, and I naturally walked away with these beauties.

And I have to return a few more times to stock up before the sale ends (there were vegetables! and tools! and bees!)

I have big plans for this fabric, just wait and see!
Also, a big hello to my new readers!

and i'm back!

whew! Did the holiday season exhaust anyone else?  Christmas is hectic enough, and after mixing in trying to balance your new life in a new place AND pencil in a trip across the country for a wedding (thank you, Jacob, for making me your groomslady!) it got a little overwhelming. 

This girl is tired! (fun is tiring, didn't you know?)
Anyways, this week coming up will be a doozy as well! Friend dates and chillaxin' appointments are what I have to look forward to.
I'm excited!

This outfit was ages ago, somewhere in between unwrapping presents and packing my suitcase. All I know is I've had those riding boots far longer than I should, but they're like a safety blanket for my feet! (comforting and familiar can apply to footwear, right? Right.)
