So this weekend was a crazy busy weekend for us. This weekend Rock threw me a birthday party for my 35th birthday and then on Sunday we celebrated Monkey's First Holy Communion. We spent all week prepping for these parties, I did he fun fluffy stuff like decorating and baking cakes while he did the hard work of dong all the food prep. My mom took over the cleaning since I still have a bum knee. I spent my lunch hour on my birthday going to get an ultrasound on my knee hoping to get some answers while we wait for my MRI to be booked.
Still being mostly couch bound has afforded me more time to work on my projects. You can check them out here where I hold myself accountable on a weekly basis and post my pictures on facebook and twitter daily.
As with previous weeks I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy , Mama Go Round and the Transatlantic Blonde.
I'm posting this a day early again because I have another Dr's appointment tomorrow, I'm going to be getting the results of the ultrasound.
Wednesday - Dr's appointment and work
headband - made by me
dress - Target
flower pins and belt - made by me
yoga pants - Addition Elle
Thursday - no pictures but we had a pizza dinner for my birthday
Friday - again no pictures after work I took Tutu to the walk in clinic because overnight he had spiked a fever of 40 and every time that happened he would vomit. While at the Dr's he did it again and we got put to the front of the line. The Dr told me that he was dehydrated and needed to be admitted overnight for dehydration. I took him to ER and spent 4 hours there only to find out that he is not dehydrated and has a virus. The Dr had me in tears that my son was so sick but it turned out all right in the end.
Saturday - My party
I wish I had gotten more and better pictures. I love the way my hair turned out. Everyone was asking me if I had extensions in my hair but nope it's all mine. It's funny in high school I always had the short hair (lots of pixie cuts) and my friends had the long hair. Now I have the long hair and there is short (not pixie cut short but about shoulder or chin length). I teased my hair, pulled it back and then curled random sections for the hair that was down.
flower in my hair (not seen)-gift from my mom
dress - upcycled by me
cardi - Dress barn
leggings - Penningtons
Sunday - Monkey's First Holy Communion
I didn't wake up early enough to get my hair done they way I wanted to so it was just pulled up. I needed to make sure the special girl had her hair curled for her special day. I even forgot to put a flower in my hair. I wear one every day and I forgot that day.
dress - Walmart (I got it on clearance for $5)
flower pins - made by me
belt - Forever 21
tights - Target
Monday - Work
headband - a gift from my friend for my birthday
top - it's so old I don't remember where I got it
skirt - Penningtons
It was warm out today so I deiced to wear a skirt to take advantage of it.
Tuesday - work
top - Penningtons
cowl - made by me
pants - Addition Elle (I picked them on on the clearance rack for $3, I picked up 1 pair a size smaller thinking if they didn't fit I only wasted $3. They did fit and when I sent my mom back tot he store to get me some more they had none. Next time).
This is Monkey at her First Holy Communion. The dress was made by my mom and me. I did the designing my mom did most of the sewing and I made the wreath and veil. I think it turned out great. I noticed in some of the pictures the skirt had shifted from the middle more to the side but I am going to get her dress up again in the dress to take some more pictures without the pressure of the day. The dress is actually 2 pieces, a top and a skirt. We did this sot hat in 4 years Muffin will be able to wear it as well. We have extra material to make a new top and the skirt waist can be let out to fit her. Right now they are almost the same size so in 4 years Muffin will be much bigger. If the skirt is too short we can add another layer of ruffles. Put a lot of thought into this.
And this morning I decorated my cane. I was holding off doing it because I didn't want to be a part of my life but since he is determined to stick around he gets to be dressed up. I used washi tape to dress him up.
I hope that everyone had a great week and creative week.
