{looking for advice!}


Zack's mom and grandma came down Saturday afternoon and stayed through this morning {Tuesday}. They were here from Petoskey {a lovely 4-hour drive} and graciously recovered our living room couch. You can read about my anticipated excitement from this recent post: {I'll just take my couch and MOVE OUT.} If you haven't read that post yet, don't freak out. No one is moving... I was just remembering a fond memory of my college years...

And that memory is over.

I'll let ya know when the pictures are ready.

While the family was in town, I was SO LUCKY to have found this amazing fabric shop located in downtown Royal Oak. {Thanks Uncle John!} It's called, I CAN'T SHARE THAT WITH YOU, SILLY. Trade Secrets, ya know ;) I found the coolest {!!!} button collection. Oh my word. I'm going to have to really restrain myself from not applying three or more buttons on my sewing projects. Three is my limit. Three.

{I have no clue why.}

Zack informed me this morning that "having family around really brings out my 70%."

I'm taking that as a very nice way of saying, Thanks for visiting guys, because my wife put the Sass in the closet for four whole days and it was like a breath of fresh...

OK, now I'm exaggerating that a bit. But he did say ...[it] really brings out my 70%.
You can laugh with me as I recall the 30%/70% fact here.
That is the plain truth.


I'm going to make a big U-turn now. I need some advice.
  1. I'm looking for a new purse.
Here is the purse style I'm looking for. I need something that is functional AND cute {of course}.

What do you think? What are your thoughts? Please post... I need your help :)

  1. I don't like my hair. It is never the same two days in a row, and if it ever looks good, years later when I just love it, I can't remember what I used to style it.
It is too wavy, too curly, too straight, too crunchy, too soft. And I know I'm complaining TOO much. I used to use a nice cream for wavy hair, and that was great. I can't remember what product it was though. Then I was mixing gel and leave-in conditioner, but that isn't it 100%. Now I'm using mouse, and that is just NOT GOOD. It's giving me crunchy hair that is flat {I like my volume}. I know some of you readers have beautiful hair, so I'd love if you could offer up some suggestions. My hair is like 1.5 inches PAST my shoulders. Maybe I just need to cut 3 inches off. I would love that, Zack... he would probably want me to NOT cut it. But I know he wouldn't mind, just as long as it's not cut to my chin.

And with that, I'm done!

So funny that you're from GR! We are actually living in Spring Lake right now, over by Grand Haven but we were in GR for 7 years before moving over to this area. I love the west side of MI.
I'm going to have to check out your Etsy site - I'm a knitter and sewer so I love finding fellow crafters. =) My husband's best friend is HUGE into Etsy and has gotten a lot of recognition from them and has tutorials for how to get started on Etsy, etc. His shop is Timothy Adam Designs, he does metal stuff.
