Baby Walter!

Nichol and Joseph had their baby! He is beautiful!

And pretty alert for only being 5 days old!!


So, I saw this scarf on the J. Crew website and really liked it. I don't consider myself a scarf person, but I think I will be giving them a try! I especially love anything metallic. Anyway, $55 is way too much for a scarf so I made my own from a $.50 thrifted  scarf.

I bought the gold paint from JoAnn's fabric for $5. 

and painted tiny hearts! 
I am considering this scarf a practice scarf because the color and fabric was not ideal. I might wear it tomorrow though! If I decide that I really love this scarf, I think I will make another on a lightweight white fabric and make a small heart stamp to make it a bit more uniform.

This is a DIY I did a few weeks ago...


Bow Sweater!
I followed a tutorial from It was pretty easy except my sewing skills are a little wonky.

super bowl

So, I could care less about the super bowl. However, since we live only an hour or so from Indianapolis, there is really not escaping it! At work on Friday we were supposed to wear "Colts gear", which I do not have. So, I made a blue bow tie out of felt and pinned it on my "Virginia is for lovers" shirt, so I could support VA too. Not wanting a good bow tie to go unused, I am wearing it again today.

I think I am technically rooting for the Saints. Mainly because I like cheering for the underdog and I like Reggie Bush and I like this guy.

Reasons to have a baby...

There are a few reasons I should have a baby.

1. Nichol would make the baby this! And I love it! (I totally stole this image from her blog, sorry Nichol!)
She made this for her baby and it is the most adorable mobile I have ever seen!

2. I could dress it up as this for Halloween!

3. It could wear this!!
I found this at a thrift shop outside of Louisville. It is maybe the funniest thing I have ever found at a thrift shop... or anywhere?

None of those reasons are really good enough for such a life changing decision... so I listed the hilarious cowboy face baby outfit on etsy. Check it out here!

Mike and I have inherited a ton of things from his grandfather, including a stack of these amazing pin up girl cards! My favorite is the vespa girl!
