A Great Weekend

Happy belated Mother's Day to all you fab Moms! So how was your weekend? Mine was jam-packed, fun, but relaxing too. Friday night, we sent the kiddos off to the grandparents and the hubs and I went on a fun date. We had a nice dinner and then saw Iron Man 2 at the IMAX. We got there a little late and had to sit waaay too close to the screen. But, it was well worth it. Totally loved the movie!! I liked it so much better than the first Iron Man. I definitely recommend it!
Sunday morning I actually got to sleep in a little! Then I got woken up by excited kids wanting me to open their presents. So cute! I got a custom piece of artwork and a beautiful little ceramic handprint! And look what else I got!!

Yep! The hubs actually came through on this one!! Of course, it was no surprise, since he called me to ask me the name of the cookbook I wanted like three times! But that's ok! You see, he's not all that great at special occasions, so I'm not complaining. Oh! And I got some flowers too!
I got to spend the rest of the day browsing through my new cookbook and watching movies.
Later, we even made one of the recipes from the book! We made the potato skins!
Check it out! YUM! They turned out sooo good!!

Now I'm trying to decide what to make next! I think it might have to be the cinnamon rolls!

I have to show you what else I've been busy doing lately! I've had a lot of requests from neighbors recently!

First, some embroidered towels

Then, a toga. Yes! A toga!
(The BEST toga at any Oregon State frat party, that is!)

Then, some cute zippered pouches for my hairdresser (also my neighbor)

She wanted them to look like this generic one, but only cuter! They are cuter, aren't they?

Doing all these zippered pouches inspired me to whip up a couple more and put them in my Bloom Design Etsy shop! And, I'm also having a sale over at Hip Fabric! 15% off your entire purchase!

Oh yeah!! And how could I forget! We also got a new puppy! He's a West Highland White Terrier named Scooter! He is the cutest, most fun, little fur ball around! But, he is definitely a little fireball full of energy!

Notice the dirty face? He has mischief written all over him!

More puppy love!
