{sun please?}

I had a 1/2 day off of work last week, and it happened to be gorgeous outside! How stoked was I? It felt amazing, like a major pick-me-up.  I decided to treat myself to a fun new tote and some nail polish to keep the summer feeling lasting.  It's the little things :] I even got outside and weeded my lawn hah! new fav color: Turquoise & Caicos by Essie!
Hope your week is going fantastic!

{Green Sewing}

I'm super excited to show you a little project I did today.  A while back my husband asked me about our Swiffer Wet Jet, and the disposable pads that go on it.  We were running out and my husband didn't like the fact that we just buy them to throw away, so he wanted to have something we could throw in the wash instead. My Mr. is such a good cleaner(the dishes are clinking as we speak *yay*).  We picked up a whole pack of large washcloths a few weekends ago that fit the length of the mop head perfectly.  Today while shopping at the grocery store I picked up some adhesive, Velcro squares.  These worked out so well because there was no need to pin them in place while I stitched them to the fabric.  I just did a simple X over the Velcro and they were done! Here are a few photos of the finished re-usable mopping pads.

Mom & I got to go to Wicked!! I was so excited! I had read the book last year and have been hearing such amazing things about the musical.  It was incredible and so much fun. p.s is my mama not adorable?

My brothers came down to visit and have some Easter fun last weekend.  My overtime at work thankfully got cancelled, so we made plans for dinner and egg dying!  Our little creations are pretty awesome if you ask me. ;) Not that I love my little bro getting hurt and not being able to work but we get to hang out so much more and it's pretty sweet lol.  He's on the mend so no worries :D

Dustin's little brother is turning 21, so the family booked a flight to Las Vegas!  I was nervous at first but vacation sounds soooo good.  The hubby and I got his & her luggage and got our itinerary all set.  This will be Dustin's first flight! I'm so excited for him.  Flying is one of my absolute favorite things. 

This week I made some Red Velvet cake pops for work.  They were so delicious. Here's the link for Bakerella's easy and amazing recipe. Your friends and family will love you.

Tomorrow is Guest Room day.  Here's to getting the painting finally done & here's to a productive weekend!
