marimekko target 1

Target launched a new designer line of goodies back on April 17th, this time with Marimekko. Which is my favorite fabric designer. As much as I love Liberty, Marimekki’s big bold prints own my heart.

spring break 2016 1

Hannah and I hit the road this week for three nights in Lancaster county. We did this two years ago, and then again that same summer with my mom, and it was great. Last year we were in Las Vegas for spring break, but this year we didn’t have any plans. And H is a little older, we don’t need the stroller. She was much more into it this trip. We did a lot of fabric shopping for Mommy, but we also saw tons of trains and animals for her.

liberty fabric

I’ve been stocking up on Liberty of London fabrics from a secret, cheap source in Manhattan. I’m not ready to share the source yet, because the members of my quilt guild who shared it will take back my crafter card if I spill the beans. The point is that now I have to figure out what to make.

I always thought my hands were too shaky to ever do my own nails, but then before the holidays I decided I was tired of spending money and time on manicures. This is the top of the mountain of First World Problems, I know. But, I’m a lifelong nail biter. Having my nails done stops the biting habit.

I’ve been picking up a few things ahead of my birthday next week that just make me smile. This octopus gives me the happies, I picked him up at Target last week. He’s sitting in my studio looking down at me with his piratey, cephalopod ways.

Since I don’t need to dress for my teaching job anymore, I’ve ended up with a hodgepodge of new t-shirts and other casual paraphernalia. First, I got a pair of Bean boots. Which are actually amazing for snow and for trudging behind horses during Hannah’s equine PT. I had no idea there was a cult around these shoes, and that you have to order them waaay in advance because they take weeks and sometimes sell out for the season. I ordered mine back in October, they were here in plenty of time for snow.

It’s paper time.

Hannah and I hit up The Container Store in Paramus last Friday, the same day as coffee with Kathy, for one of my favorite annual holiday traditions. I actually debated whether we should make the hour drive this year just for wrapping paper, when I’d seen some cute prints at our local TJ Maxx. But tradition is tradition is tradition. It makes me happy to watch H get in on these rituals.

human tees

Human is having a $19.99 tee sale, and I picked some up to add to my warm weather wardrobe. Somehow my closet has evolved into an almost even split of fit-and-flare dresses and nerdy t-shirts. I am not complaining.

New Spring Dresses

Last month I bought these adorable new dresses. The red dots are from ModCloth, and the apple dress and grey dress are from Boden. I wore the apples once when the weather dared to climb above 50, but the rest are squirreled away for when the weather is actually warm. When is that going to happen?! This is the longest winter of all time. I want to wear my cute dresses with cute shoes.
