ouch. there is a hole in my right thumb.

 stretch tee, skirt, leggings: f21 / flats: jessica simpson 
necklace: prettythingsbymeg / nails: OPI big red apple

as ryan and i were driving around tonight (with good ole pey-pey as our sidekick), i told him that this is one of those weeks that feels really sloooooow - not in a bad way, just when you really feel each day as it goes by - but then snap! you realize tomorrow is already friday?! do you know what i mean? but dude, the fact that it's friday tomorrow, of course, is a very good thing!

it has been a quite a week for sewing! so thankful for the orders and the creative ideas flowing in and out of my little mind - but oh goodness, i think i have a permanent dent forming in my right thumb from sewing. i know, i know - i should use a thimble but i hate those things. plus it really doesn't help me to sew. i feel like such a klutz with it on (not that i'm not enough of one already). band-aid's help - but only temporarily...until it starts forming its own dent. 

and speaking of sewing...which makes me think of handmade...which reminds me of some sweet packages i received this weekend - including my very own ruffle necklace from sweet megan. have you seen these necklaces rock the blog world recently?! i've actually had my eye on this lovely for a long time - and even ryan commented how much he liked it! mega points!! 

okay, enough of my rambling. i think i'm officially suffering from day-two of brain-deadness...or maybe it's the fact that it's time that i get more rest these days. and it's the weekend so rest is automatically a part of that! 

plus i'm also looking forward to putting the needle and thread down for the weekend and hanging out with ryan as he's still hanging out with me and the family for a little bit longer - woohoo!! and crossing my fingers, i want to finish The Scorch Trials (lovelovelove). and last but not least, of course, work on the finishing touches of the bloganniversary i mentioned to you find people yesterday. can.not.wait.

and what's on your list this weekend?
what's something FUN you're going to?
nothing productive pls. 
*wink*  

much love.
[happy friday, friend!]

  13. Productive is overrated. That is why I am going to probably see TWO movies tonight -- go big or go home, right? Haha I never go to the movies.

  16. you looks so so so good! i love the ruffle necklace! where have i been that i'm new to the ruffles? i too have a thumb-bump. i sewed hearts onto all my valentines sans thimble. (i agree, the thimble makes more work if you're not already adept, right?)

  17. the kiddos and I will be hanging out close to home just relaxing, which I'm thrilled about! Love Meg's work, such gorgeous pieces!

  18. Good for you girl, doing all the sewing! I need to get back into it and sew my little heart out. My BF is in town with her new hubby so I'll be hanging out with them, she wants to help with some wedding DIY things and just chat until they leave on Sunday. Monday the office is closed, so maybe I'll take advantage and be productive and do something with my time. like make some bridal accessories to sell???????

    Enjoy your time with Ryan!

  22. SUCH a great look. And, isn't it awesome how a look can become so elevated by accessories? Your necklace and nails really rock it.

  25. I hate using thimbles, too! Have you tried Thumb-Its? They're tiny little plastic disks that are adhesive on one side. You just stick it to your thumb and sew away. They're thin enough that you can function normally, but tough enough to keep you hole-free :-) Worth a try!
