Egg Hunt and Family Time

We’re not religious people. Religious holidays, for us is a time to celebrate each other and enjoy and appreciate one another. The four of us headed over to Dana’s parents to spend some time with them and enjoy a yummy dinner together. We picked up a small bag of candy to fill a handful of eggs that I kept from previous Easter Egg Hunts. Monkey loves the egg hunts. She looks forward to it every year. This is the first year Squish got to enjoy hunting eggs, since last year he was much too little. Along with the filled eggs we also picked up a few boxes of confetti eggs. Confetti eggs are real eggshells that have been dyed and filled with paper confetti. They were a big hit with the kiddos.

Great food and quality family time. I couldn’t ask for more.
Monk got to eat a bunch of candy, which is a rare treat for her. We usually keep the house stocked with organic lollipops but only on rare occasions do we pick up candy for the kids.

I hope everyone enjoyed a fabulous day with the ones you love.

T-Shirt Refashioned: Lace-y T-Shirt

I’ve been wanting a lace-y top for some time now. About a month ago we headed to the fabric section of our local big box store and picked up a yard of beautiful black lace fabric and a couple of plain t-shirts. I didn’t have a clue as to what I was going to do with my new stuff. I had a few things pinned on my Pinterest board(s) but I wasn’t quite sold on one exact style. This is what I ended up with:

Monkey & Squish | T-Shirt Refashioned: Lace-y T-shirt
I’ve had my sewing machines for about five years now, but I’ve only used it a handful of times. Majority of the things I’ve sewn has been dress-up clothes for Monk. In the end I do like how it turned out. I wished my thread was a bit darker so my stitches wouldn’t be so noticeable, but I do like that it’s still a t-shirt with a bit of fancy detail. I didn’t take any photos while I was doing this project because to be honest I expected this project to be a complete flop. Anyhow, I can’t wait to wear my new t-shirt out and about.

Have you re-fashioned anything lately? Are you a fan of lace?

Thanks so much for visiting my little blog!

Hearts and a Bow
I was having a BLAH kind of day so I threw on my comfy heart sweater. The sparkles from my crystal bow necklace and the hearts on my sweater cheered me up a bit.

I love this dress, it’s plaid with bits of crochet trim.

I was warm and cozy while we were out running errands today.
