Playing Catch Up and Learning to Sew

Not sure about you all, but this past week was a terrible one for my family. I got the dreaded stomach bug on Tuesday, hubby got it on Wednesday, and then I got it again on Thursday night, Bleh! We are finally starting to feel better, but on top of all that our cable and Internet went out for 2 days, so I was not able to post for a few days, so today I am playing catch up.

The weather here has been wonderful and fall and football is in full swing at my house. Hubby and I finally had the chance to go out for our Anniversary last Saturday, so we chose to go to Stony River Steakhouse and it was DELICIOUS! I highly recommend it to anyone that has not been there. I usually can't finish my dinner when we go out, but this time I finished everything and even had a little dessert.

The next day I went over to my mother in laws (MIL) for my first sewing lesson. I have decided that I would like to know how to sew, to be able to make things for around the house and for sweet pea, so she was willing to teach me some basics. I wanted to make a pillow case dress for sweet pea with some OU fabric that MIL had on hand , and she said that would be a good thing to learn on since it is basically just a rectangle. She let me do pretty much everything myself, and helped when needed. I even got to use her surger to make the edges more professional looking. I'm not gonna lie I am pretty proud of the way it turned out, and plan on making a few more. Hopefully I will still remember everything that I learned!

(Sorry for the dark pictures, I forgot my camera, so these are from MILS IPhone)

I am hoping and praying that this week will be 100 times better than last. Guess we will find out tomorrow. Until next time, BYE!
