What Day is it?


I'm having trouble figuring out what day it is. Do you ever have a week like that? Okay, it's Wednesday - I've got it now.

I decided to use a bed as the staging area for my car cramming session (which will take place tomorrow). What will need at the new house the first night? Toilet paper! Paper towels. Sheets for the bed. Towels and bathmat. Check.

We will not have a refrigerator until next Wednesday (because we get 10% off if we're patient) so I'll pack some pop top soups - the kind you zap in the microwave and drink straight out of the can. And some crackers. And granola bars. Oh, the list keep growing!

I finished my beaded 'mother of the bride' belt yesterday. These belts are made for someone who is a size 2, I think. I am not a size 2. So I bought two belts. You may remember I dyed them navy last week. Yesterday I hand stitched them together to make one belt which fits me perfectly. I also used some fabric glue to help hold everything together.  

Today I plan to make some tiny "belt loops" to hand stitch inside the shoulder seams of my 'mother of the bride' dress to hold my bra straps in place. That will finish my outfit! I bought some snazzy shoes to wear down the aisle - gold sparkly heels. I'm packing up some flats to wear during the reception - I know I can't walk in the heels for a long time. One of the daughters has already claimed the heels as soon as the wedding is over.

I hope you have a wonderful day!!!
