So I have finally gotten back into sewing. I've even made progress on the quilt that I started.. um... about 3 years ago. Anyways, what I am really loving is this dress that I made for Lilly from a skirt from a thrift store. A $3 skirt. Well, a teeny-tiny miniskirt. That made it easy bc I didn't even have to adjust the length.

Here is how it started.

And this is how it ended.

I love the ruffles. They are my favorite part.

Yeah for new dresses. (And it only looks funny because she has her hands up in the air. It's cute. I promise.)

10 months ago....

Lilly looked like this.

Now she looks like this.
Wow, 10 months goes by way faster out of the womb than inside the womb. That is fo. sho.

Let's Play...

I was looking through the pictures on my phone the other day and I thought we should play a little game of who took the picture? Hint: the answer will either be me or Lilly. I know this will be difficult but just try and guess.

Answers: me, Lilly, me, Lilly, me, Lilly, me, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, me, me, Lilly

10-13 correct: You are a genius! Way to use those reasoning skills!
5-9 correct: Nice try. But why not use a little common sense next time.
0-4 correct: Who are you?!? Did you really think Lilly could take pictures of herself?! Or that I would photograph my own foot?!?!

p.s. Just thought this was a cut picture of Lilly. Love her.

The Road to Obesity...

is paved with Happy Meals.

But oh well. We apparently don't care.

Lilly had her first Happy Meal this weekend and she is just too cute to not document it. Lately she has been quite the carnivore (she now loves meatballs, sausage, chicken, eggs, etc) so we thought she would probably like some chicken nuggets... and yes, we were right.

Scroll on down for your very own look into Lilly's first adventure at McDonald's.

What a happy little girl she was. Especially now that she has her very own Strawberry Shortcake doll.

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On

I saw this on Facebook this morning and thought it was just too funny to not share with you guys. It's so silly and random but I could not stop laughing so, enjoy!

Here is a couple videos of our little babe. Probably boring for anyone other than Grandparents, but I post them anyways. Cause she is just so dang cute!

Need a comb?

Who, me?

p.s. we finally bought a bed yesterday! (thank you labor day sales) So when we finally get it (sadly we will have 2 more weeks of sleeping with our mattress on the ground) I will show you the rest of the apartment. I'm telling you this so that I will actually put our room together... that way I'm not totally embarrassed to put up a picture.

p.p.s. for those of you who are curious, it looks a little something like this:
