Today was a great Saturday! I woke up at 8 am and relaxed while eating my Honey Bunches of Oats with raisins (BOGO at Publix) and drinking my Chocolate Glazed Donut coffee (5 calories...promise). Then, I got ready to head over to Laura's wedding shower at Danielle's parents home! My mom made one of her beautiful signs, and I made her a DVD of all of the engagement shots I took for them. You can watch the video below.
At the shower we got to wear our fancy hats. My floppy hat I ordered on Thursday isn't here yet, but will be Monday, so I wore another one! My sister had a social for Phi Mu and decorated my black beach hat to look like it belonged at the Derby. I was a bit mad at her for turning the hat so over the top, but NOW I am thankful she did. It was a hit and I felt so posh!
The Bride and ME!
Danielle and Laura
Danielle and the bridesmaids threw a gorgeous shower complete with a cake made from Paula Deen's relative! I will link to Danielle's blog for more pictures when she posts them! Laura got lots of presents that will be so useful when starting her married life. I am so happy for them.
Next, I got home and picked up Lyla girl. Ryno had gone golfing...in 92* heat...CRAZY! So, we were two girls all alone. What were we to do? SEW! We drove, well I did and Lyla rode, over to Mom's. I bought some fabric when we went to Whipstitch that I wanted to use for some outfits for MX. I knew what I want, but we couldn't find a pattern exactly like it. Mom, being awesome, designed the shirt and taught me how to make it. I love it!
I love the bright colors...much better to me than the drab stuff in stores lately...IT IS SUMMER PEOPLE!My mother's hands can do so much. I love her!
The material for the ties at the neck. This is my best work yet. I asked Ryan to take a pic for me, and as I was getting in spot . . . FLASH!! HAHA!
I love the dramatic tie.
Thanks Mom for helping me put my idea into reality! You are an amazing lady that I am blessed to have in my life!
I hope you all had an enjoyable Saturday!
