I sewed myself a dress! Hurrah!

I made myself a little dress yesterday/this morning. I think it came out pretty darn good for me to have never attempted such a project before. I will be making more for sure.. so I think this blog will be seeing a tutorial really soon-- if that is indeed something you would like to see.. let me know in the comments! So.. without further procrastination, here it is. I'm wearing a shrug because I didn't want to hunt down a bra without straps. This dress also has small halter straps that can tuck in (which I have done here) or be worn tied around the neck. I will be doing an OOTD with this dress reallllly soon.. so I promise you will get a good idea of how it looks styled. Ignore the wet hair and no makeup.. I was fresh out of the shower and excited to try it on!
I'm thinking of recreating this fun little jig for the wee ones in the world also!

How Does Your Garden Grow?

with silver bells and... So folks, how's life? Long time no update.. but that seems to be a running theme around these parts. I see all these blogs that are just fixed up like a BOSS.. and I can't quite get there. I want everything under one roof and that's hard to do you know? Anyway.. so, new news.. I'm starting my first ever GARDEN. Yup. I'm getting my fat behind out in the yard for some manual labor and I'm gonna grow me some clean, fresh organic goods. As of now I'm still in the digging/weeding/grassing part.. but I do have a before picture to show you, and then hopefully tomorrow I'll have a "area dug up and ready for planting" picture.. and then well, you get the idea ;)
and of course... my kiddo cutting first ground
So anyway.. we're gonna plant some fun stuff.. and we got gifted a whole ton of herbs, so I will be posting up a list of everything we plant and whatnot along with photos... hopefully soon!
