Emolyn @ 15 months

Emolyn is 15 months old now and let me tell you, she is quite the character. She has the cutest expressions! I can hardly stand it! She is the happiest, most content little baby. But she occasionally goes a little wild... like when she discovered lipstick. Oh, but don't worry, it's pretend lipstick.
She recently had a photo shoot with Kelsie Pinkerton Photography. Click HERE , turn up the volume and check out our pretty little baby!

My sister Ginny and I had the best time together. And the weather could not have been better... rainy and in the 80's! When they arrived the high was 107... the next day the high was 87. Perfect for our shopping day when we were in & out of the van. We checked out the new Container Store in Scottsdale, a few Estate Sales, my favorite little thrift store in Tempe, JoAnns, the Quiltz shop @ 32nd & Thunderbird and of course IKEA a couple 2-3 times. Heck, when you live a mile from IKEA, you have to check out the as-is department daily!
So it only made sense to pamper our poor feet with an Arbonne sea salt scrubbing at the end of the day. Aaahhh...

We also had a day of sewing and redecorating my home. On that particular day I not only sewed two thread catchers, made a pan of lemon bars and a meal of roast, mashed potatoes & gravy but we also rearranged my living room. We even hauled my old humongous plaid sofa bed out front with a free sign and it was gone in a half hour! And when I say we, I mean Tyler helping us. Can't tell you how awesome my living room looks without that monstrosity taking up so much space!

We also watched the American Idol finale. So exciting! So much so, that I finally caved, checked online and announced to everyone that Chris had won!! Actually, everyone wanted me to do that all night long. But the drama finally got to me, and I wanted to find out early too. We were shocked but pleasantly surprised.

Hey, check back for pics of our favorite thrifty finds and sewing projects. I hit the jackpot!
