The bulk of my weekend was spent eating cookie dough and sewing a (floral) dress. I wanted to finish the dress to wear for Mother's Day, but that didn't work out. I figured as long as it was done in time for Inspiration Monday today and Everybody, Everywear Florals tomorrow, that would be good enough.
|Dress: I made it!; Ribbon Belt: from another skirt; Shoes: Target; Jacket: Kohl's|
|Cardigan: Rodarte for Target|
The dress came out pretty well! The bodice isn't a perfect fit, but whatevs. The only trouble I really ran into was the straps were askew at first, but that was pretty easily remedied. Attaching the front to the back bodice had me completely stumped, so I had to ask for some help and sleep on it before I actually could figure it out.
I thought the fabric was pretty fun--plus it was on clearance. It looks like all flowers from far away, but there are birds, birdhouses, butterflies, turkeys, upside down cats, and pink bunnies? hidden in it.
As for the cookie dough, the daughter of one of my coworkers was selling cookie dough back in March. I bought two tubs, and kinda sorta ate spoonfuls of it whenever I walked by the refrigerator. I did actually bake a good portion of it, too, though, so that's something. Needless to say, I did not do well on the ole WW Points this weekend.
When I wasn't stuffing my face or sewing, I was spending time with friends and family. Friday, I went to a girls' night at my friend's house since her husband and another girl's boyfriend were turkey hunting. The four of us girls ate pizza and some of my baked cookie dough (also known as cookies) and played Marry, Date, or Dump. I couldn't stay for very long since I had the baby with me, but it was fun.
Saturday night, I had another friend's birthday party. We ate quite a bit of yummy food while talking and giggling together and then played a fun game of Family Feud. Unfortunately, I also had to leave early from that party since hubs had to go into work at 11 PM. Booo.
Then, Sunday was Mother's Day! My parents came over, and we grilled out and watched Tangled. Very cute movie!
How awesome is it that we're starting to get spring weather now? Yay!
