Stormy weather blues...

First off, this whole "staying inside because it's raining" ordeal for two days straight is REALLY not fun when you have an anxious 2 year old who NEVER. STOPS. MOVING.

lol

Thank you, Debbie (tropical storm, Debbie, that is)


That arrow is where I live...but this seriously is going to go on for all. week. long....

WHAT am I going to do with myself?? AND with my girls?? It's not like I can get much done for myself with A around needing my attention...lol.

Pray for me and my sanity. lol

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Ok, so I REALLY wanted to link with Tara's Made-It Monday Party...except, the universe is against me and my crafting today....
First, when I went to JoAnn's, they didn't have ANY fabric in like a tropical/beachy theme that I was looking for...
BUT, I did find a few things that I could use...

But wouldn't you know it??

As soon as I started sewing, my sewing machine went all "kuh-put" on me....

oh jeesh...

Oh well...

And the bathroom isn't finished, so I can't show you that yet :(

BUT, I did got to Party City today - thanks to a fabulous comment left for me yesterday!



I got some cutouts that I'm going to lamenate, and hang around the room - though I might need to go get another pack...lol

And some green fans that I can hang with the paper lanterns I showed you the other day...

And I was thinking about maybe laminating the orange flower and using it as some sort of "message board" - what do you think??? Ideas??


But, I really like this little find:


I'm going to use this as my author table -


Yeah- that's what it was last year...though, I DID eventually put a cheap dollar store table cloth on it - but I think that the flower fringe will be fun! I'll see if I really like it when I get it all set up I guess...lol

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~NEXT~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Someone posted this on FB today...

It's so good to remember this....


I guess I could say the same thing about my laundry that I HATE folding and putting away (that I was talking about yesterday...no...I never did it...lol).

And THIS song has been stuck in my head for like 4 weeks... I LOVE it...lol.

So I thought I'd get it stuck in your head. :)

You're welcome! ha!

Love what you found, very cute!! When my girls were the 1 and 3 we had rain for 40 days straight!! I kid you not, we were ready to build an ark!! When it stopped raining for even a minute we would run around outside!! Hope you get sunny skies soon!

Aloha,

Girl, I can totally relate to the rainy ordeal! I'm a little north of your arrow on the map. I have a 3 year old who has been running all over the place all day. She keeps begging to go to the park & doesn't understand that we can't go to the park when it rains! Hang in there! Hopefully the rain will be gone sooner rather than later!

I can also relate to you an Lisa R (commenter above :)
I live in Tallahassee and we are getting LOADS of rain. It's so miserable. While I do not have kids, I do have two pups and they are just as ready to be done with all this as we are!!! Not excited about it being here all week either.
I will say a prayer for all of us tonight.

And next time you hear of a Florida Meet Up make sure I know about it!!!! I wanna join in on the fun!

Can you go to the library- or can you not travel at all?

Hugs- stay safe!

I am sorry you aren't liking the rain (that made me think of Twilight..."how you likin' the rain Arizona??") I know I'm a dweeb! I actually prayed that Debbie would be headed my way over here in Texas. It is sooo hot here and we've had little to no rain. I could handle a TS or even a level 1 right about now!!

I just thought about you when I saw the weather. So sorry sounds like you will be getting FEET of rain all week. We on the other hand have triple digits and no rain. I like your cute little flowers.

Debby sucks. I just have to say it and I don't even live in Florida. Hopefully she'll take some Midol and move on, right? Thinking of you all! Stay safe!

I've been a little worried for my Florida blogger friends, but it looks as if you are OK :)

Boo on Joann Fabric. You'll find something. Just keep looking (and yes, online might be the key.)

I love the blue border. I will be in Hawaii next Monday for the month. I don't mind buying you some material and shipping it to you. I have to go fabric shopping for me, too.

I love the idea of laminating the flower and using it as a message board. So cute!

We live an hour or so south of Jacksonville, so I know what you mean about the rain! Luckily, the kids and I are spending the month in Kentucky with my mom, so the poor hubby gets to deal with the storm by himself!

Lovin' all the beachy stuff... sorry about the weather. I hope it improves quickly.
