Happy Birthday to Me

30 here I come!

Here is my "I'm in denial that I'm turning 30" hair color. I love the purple. Sendai and I decided we should do this every decade.
Jody got me 5 lbs of snow crab legs for my birthday. I decided to be nice and share. We were surprised that Olivia wanted in on the action.

Let the countdown begin

I have less than 2 hours left of being 29. I feel very sad about this. In honor of the big 3-0 Sendai and I had a girl's day out and dyed a chunk of our hair purple. Pictures to follow...

Olivia is invited to a Rock Star themed birthday party tomorrow. The kids are suppose to dress up in rack star garb. I've been thinking about making a pettiskirt after a friend mentioned seeing them on vacation. I thought this was a good time to dust off my sewing machine and working on a new project. The pettiskirt turned out nice. There are some things I know now that will make the process a lot quicker next time, like the fact that a ruffler foot exists and will make gathering a breeze or that the chiffon they sale in town frays. I plan on ordering some nylon chiffon online and tweaking the pattern a bit the next time.
