Awkward and Awesome Thursday


-This dream I had where Trinity wasn't really mine. I was just a surrogate who also had to nurse her for a few months and her momma was an old black woman.
-resting my arm on the attached-to-the-wall soap dish, the whole thing broke off...Super Hero asked if the sink broke in half. Really? What kind of activities do you think I'm up to in the there?
-tried on a dress from my closet and a spider was crawling at warp speed toward my face. Yes, I yelped, and flicked him off. Then I had issues with being in my room because I didn't know where he landed.
-During one of the many baby-likes-to-eat-every-45-minutes nights this week, I managed to put my nursing pad in backwards, so for her next feeding my whole left side got soaked. Did I change my nightgown? Nope! I just threw a towel on the bed and told Super Hero not to worry about the sour milk smell

-Science kiddo started scouts again this year, he is now a 1st year webelos scout and greatly looking forward to earning his badges.
-Chatty Boo has started ballet. She is not graceful, at all. Super Hero said something about getting it from some woman...but I didn't hear him.
-Went to a wedding to watch two people pledge their love for each other and to God.
-Mootshie Pie is growing so fast! Soon her double chinned, lumpy legged self will be in 3mo clothing!
-Watching my Science Kiddo and Super Hero break dance
-Super Hero and Chatty Boo, dancing sweetly together

What was awkward/amazing for you this week?

btw, got this cute aa thursday idea from this blogger!

Inifinity Scarf

I love scarves! Anyone who knows me knows how great of an understatement that it. I love them all year, but especially in the Fall. One can never have too many scarves and I am so thrilled I found a tutorial on how to make my own, simple, scarf.

I came across this tutorial the other day for an infinity scarf. I own a few and really love them! This tutorial is so simple, and requires NO sewing. Even better!

Here are the two I made. The first was made using a size small maternity top {from my 1st pregnancy}. This is the perfect size to use for a little girl scarf.

See how perfectly cute that is?! I just cut the bottom part of the shirt, under the arms and then cut the trim off the bottom. {the tutorial link above will go over this in more detail}

This tank is a size large maternity, from my 3rd pregnancy. {we just won't go there, k? Mmkay}.

Again, just cut the bottom part under the arms and cut the bottom trim off. I stretched this one, since it was 100% cotton, and that made it nice and long. Perfect for wrapping several times! The edges of the green scarf have rolled, which makes it look better, I think.

Now I am on a major hunt for some cute tees that I can turn into Infinity scarves.

How about you, what's your favorite Fall accessory?
