First of all I have to wish a very happy birthday to my love, Alex! Happy birthday baby - you're the bestest!
Some of you have already seen this picture of us from Halloween, but I wanted to post it again because it's one of my favourites (and there are surprisingly few pictures of us together). Alex was Max from Where the Wild Things Are and I was the female version of Tom Cruise in Risky Business.
I have been crafting, sewing, designing, and embroidering this week (mostly designing) but still don't really have anything I can show so instead I give you some pictures of pretty randomness!
First up are the pretty tulips I bought Alex on Saturday (yes, I do sometimes buy him flowers). Tulips are one of my favourites, so I guess they're a tiny bit a present to myself too!
Here is the awesome bag I bought myself last week (cheap, I got it at Winners). I love Robert Frost, and when Alex and I first met I remember having a long phone conversation about him together. Alex loves him too and we share many of the same favourite poems.
Fabricland was having a great sale last week and all Simplicity pattern were only $2.00 each (crazy, I know)! Funnily enough Amy of Things We Make just bought herself one of the same patterns (the Built by Wendy one) and we've decided that we're living parallel lives - there's a bunch of other weird little things in common that keep popping up and it's pretty entertaining!
And, I did it! I bought my dream rainboots and they're great...
And Heather Bailey told me I was gorgeous today and I can't help it, but I blushed and glowed and felt all light and happy because of it! I'm sorry if mentioning this makes me sound self-involved or anything, but it really made me feel good. I know, I'm a little ridiculous; but when an awesome, famous and talented (not to mention extremely-gorgeous-herself) lady tells you you're gorgeous, it just can not be helped! Thank you Heather, you made my day!
Okay, I have to leave for class in 15 minutes and am seriously wearing my pyjamas (I put them back on when I got home this afternoon). Talk to y'all later, you guys are the greatest!
