Hello Monday

Hello Rainy Day! Goodbye Weekend!

Hello 24Hour Fitness at 5:30am. Came home, got dressed, got kid ready, and lunch made, all by 7:45am.

Who is this person? Is it really me?

Tall boots and jeans. A first for me.Hello tall boots with jeans. A first for me.

Jeans are Lucky Brand. Boots are Old Navy, via sale, like $20, which is a total win!

Total fashion risk for me. I have thick calves. VERY hard to find boots that fit. Too many years of playing softball, and being a catcher.

I made the family take a little roadtrip after school. First on the agenda, stalk fabric!Well, Hello There Hobby Lobby.

Husband granted a little wish from me on Friday. We went on a little road trip, over an hour drive to Hobby Lobby. It was a first for me. I’m in love.

CANNOT WAIT until the one in Orange County opens!

Next place on our mini fieldtrip-roadtrip.
Bass Pro Shops in Ontario, CA
Hello There Bass Pro Shops. The male version of Hobby Lobby for my husband and Angry Kid.

Ok, I compromised. There was no way that husband was going to drive that far to go to a craft store. I might have bribed him with a trip to Bass Pro Shops.

We are going on a camping trip to Yosemite in June. We actually were shopping at Bass Pro Shops for some things that we needed.

I took a ton of pictures there. I will have to share more later. But one word pretty much describes the entire store: CAMOUFLAGE.

Sewing Bunting for Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's DayHello there crafts.

I finished some projects that I’ve been working on for the past few weeks. I made bunting for Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day.

I exchange crafts for the Holidays with my cousin-in-law Jackie. She is mailing me a wreath that she made. We are random and crafty like that.

Hello CHA aka The Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show.

I will be attending CHA next weekend with my co-worker Kim. We are very excited about this. Can you tell that we are using crafts as stress relief from our jobs?

A little view of Santa Monica today, taken from the pier.Hello Santa Monica and Santa Monica Pier.

The BFF Stacey and I went to Santa Monica yesterday to see Cirque Du Soleil’s  Show OVO.

We enjoyed a yummy lunch (post coming soon)!

We enjoyed the Cirque Show.

and of course, the people watching was fabulous!

Hello enough blog posts for the entire week, just from this weekend’s events!

I have way too much energy today. I will probably crash around 2pm and need a nap.

Hello to a brand new week.

Hello Monday!

I’m linking up with Lisa Leonard and her Hello Monday Series.

I just bought a new Janome and I've barely cracked the surface of what it can do. There's a lot of crafts ahead of me with my new treasure!

haha for a second there I thought your husband was the best husband in the world for willingly going to Hobby Lobby and I was going to show my husband this post. Glad you clarified it with the bribe to the Bass Store

I did not know that Hobby Lobby started in Oklahoma. Everyone has said so many awesome things about it. I'm sooo happy that they are opening ones in California.

Seriously, I bought two pairs of these boots when I saw that they fit my big ole' calves. And men/boys love Bass Pro Shops and all of that camouflage they have there.
