Monday Funday And Link ups

It’s Monday again….

This morning my husband and I literally rolled out of bed. We had a nice weekend of bike riding, shopping and family time, so neither one of us wanted to get out of the warm and cozy bed! While he headed to work, I headed to the treadmill for my morning cardio session. Over the weekend I did some research and designed some workout wear. I think it will be fun to draft the pattern for what I created…but that will be later on, after the first of the year. It is a spring project after all. I have yet to design the swimwear/bikinis. I already have some fabrics for that, which I have had for a while. I want to look a bit into trends and what is new before I start designing.

Today is what I am going to call “Wooly Mammoth day” LOL! but seriously…I am working with the faux fur, and it is MESSY. A word of advice…do NOT wear black or clingy fabrics when working with faux fur. You will look like an animal crawled into your lap, and used you as a bath towel.

I still have some more food shopping to do for our Thanksgiving. We will be spending the day at Grandma’s house. We have decided to eat a very healthy feast this year, so gobs of stuffing and butter-drenched potatoes are OUT. This year we are having my yummy roasted veggies, my celebration quinoa, “special” potatoes (mashed cauliflower with a little yukon gold potatoes mixed in with garlic and seasonings) sesame mushroom green beans with tamari, and I am making a light pumpkin cheesecake. Mom is roasting the turkey. I am looking forward to having our special meal! We all have much to be thankful for.

Friday is also my husband’s birthday! I am VERY thankful for John. He is the one who takes all the amazing photos of me in the outfits I create. We have a lot of fun together. I can’t imagine life without him.

Before I get to work on the faux fur coats, I wanted to mention that there are several link parties going on. Here are a few that I posted on. Come join in the fun by clicking the links below the icons..

  1. We had a 1972 high top VW bus and a 1969 VW bug. Both were blue. πŸ™‚ We went everywhere in the bus. I can still see an image in my head of my daughter when she was in her car seat, and our dog sitting next to her on the bench seat in the back. We used the bus a lot for camping. One time I slept in it because a huge bear was wandering around the camp site! It freaked me out. LOL! Since then I prefer using a cabin! hahahaha
