Big plans...I tell ya!!

Anyone else exhausted and ready for the weekend?
That 5:50am school alarm clock is just wicked early...especially with my night owl tendencies. Between juggling work obligations and adjusting to the girl's new school routines, I'm soooo ready for the weekend.

Do you have any fun plans?

Josie starts dance & gym classes on Saturday. I have to brag about the super girl leotard that I scored on clearance on JCPennys. As you can imagine, she loves it!!

You'd never know my favorite "little" super-hero has a heart condition with her unstoppable energy levels. I can't wait to see how she enjoys this new activity. Emma was Josie's age when she started her first dance class. Hard to believe this little outfit once fit Emma.

We'll also be enjoying a belated Moon Festival and lighting our sky lanterns on Saturday.

And then attending a UofM themed birthday party for our nephew on Sunday!


I'm especially eager to finish up some Halloween crafts so that I can put together a give-away in the very near future. Yes. My peat pot creations will be getting a Halloween make-over.

I hope you have some time this weekend to do something fun and enjoyable.

Happy crafting!
Happy thrifting!

I cannot believe you found a super hero leotard. You are mom of the year. Miss Emma looks so grown up with that tiny outfit in front...That candy cup is darling. I need toothpicks to keep my eyes open I am so tired. One more day! Smiles...Renee

I have never seen a super hero dance outfit, that is absolutely perfect for Josie given her love for heroes - I hope she enjoys her classes.
PS You are always the best source of peat pot inspiration!!
Enjoy your weekend and turn off the alarm clock!

I wish we had 3 day weekends every week! Two days is never enough.
The super hero leotard is so fun! I like the glitterdot one that belonged to Emma too. Have a wonderful time at your moon festival.

Wow, I would be dying with a wake up call that early, Kim! I am most definitely not an early morning person:) Love the dance ensembles! And your crepe paper confection is just adorable!!!! Have a fun weekend!

vivian said...

well! that dance leotard was and awesome find. I bet Josie loves it. she sure looks adorable in it.
How do you make those lanterns? they look really neat. I've never heard of the moon holiday before. but hey you know me... i'll celebrate and decorate for any holiday! lol!
sooo lets see.. this weekend will be as close to staying home as possible. I have a nasty cold and sore throat. However I am on call for the next week for CPS, so my weekend is in the air! In any case.. I know that if I'm not working I'll be home puttering, cooking, baking and creating! need to finish up one more thing for your package and off it should go in the morning!
have a great weekend

SKY LANTERNS??? You're REALLY going to get to DO that? I so want to that because of seeing it in the movie Tangled!! I think of you often with our temperatures finally coming down a bit meaning that fall......and your fun Halloween party is coming soon! ; )

Hello, I am a new follower. I first found the Old Glory Cottage and that led me to Creative Breathing and she has led me to a bunch of wonderful and talented ladies. My name is Lynn. I live in North Carolina. I love anything old. I love to scrapbook, stamping, altered art, and really anything that I can do. I can not paint nor do I sew. But, I am hoping to learn this winter. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful creative ideals and your stories with me.
