Good Hair Day:

Thursday, I was having a good hair day and I snapped these pictures to remind myself of how happy my hair can make me when it behaves:

I think I've said this before: I love back-to-school time. I love school supplies. I love getting new clothes. I miss it all. Luckily, I've got Andrew to live vicariously through.

I fell in love with this picture the minute I saw it:


The look is so simple. So classic. I am basing Andrew's entire fall/winter wardrobe off this picture. Today I bought him these Calvin Klein penny loafers:
And I am digging this watch to go with them:

With his new glasses and his white lab coat, he'll be the best looking nerd on campus.

First Day of School:

It's officially the first day of school at North Little Rock. Nice job, seniors. I can see at least three examples of your fine work from my door.

New glasses:

About a week ago, Andrew got a new prescription and ordered new glasses. This weekend, they came in the mail.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. We did a little cleaning, a little shopping, and are spending this evening trying out a new cookie recipe.

Happy first day of school tomorrow! I saw all the crowd at Target getting last minute back-to-school supplies and I was jealous. I love school supplies. And I miss back-to-school shopping.

These 3 super cool guys traveled the world and created these three videos. Warning: watching these videos will give you the urge to empty out your savings account and go globetrotting.

Andrew's quilt:

Finally. It's done. This project turned out to be a test of my patience. And since it was so ridiculous, let's celebrate its completion by taking a trip down memory lane to look back on its different phases.

It went from this:

To this:

To this:

It is truly an accomplishment that this quilt ever got made. Its making was a huge feat considering that everything that could possibly go wrong, actually did. My sewing machine broke in the middle of it. I had to finish it on my mom's ancient Singer, the machine I learned on at the age of 4. The blocks didn't adhere to the stabilizer and stretched, causing everything to bunch together. I had to rip out the entire thing and meticulously re-sew it with the assistance of my mother. The front turned out larger than I had planned for and I didn't have enough of the fabric I had picked out for the backing. And when I went to get some more, they had stopped carrying it. So I had to go in search of 6 additional yards of a different fabric. I had to re-applique many of the squares because before my machine messed up, it was sewing really weird and some of the seams started coming apart by the time I started to assemble the final product. It was a real mess. But I think it turned out well. It's really nice, has a great weight, and is huge, which makes it perfect for sharing. And curling up in for long naps. Plus, check out this face:

Totally worth it.

Working on my night splint:

Check out that night splint. It's pretty amazing. It stretches out my foot at a weird angle, makes me toes cold, and leaves a sore on the top of my foot. Don't you wish you had one? Who wouldn't want that?

I can't ride my bike, run, or swim for a month. But with temperatures in the triple digits (!) for the past few days, I'm not complaining. I'm perfectly happy to veg out on the couch, eating guacamole and watching seasons of Modern Family.
