I have big plans this weekend.
Kickin' off tonight with dinner with friends and a book discussion.
Good food. Good company. No kids. Cupcakes.
Some sewing time with my BFF.
Some garden and yard work.
Dinner with some out of town family Sunday night
and snuggle loving a new baby cousin.
It's gonna be a good one.
This weekend is.
Join me for Insta Friday. It's all the rage.
I saw a lot of this over the last few days...
as I got my sewing mojo back...
making a lot of these...
Thinkin' about opening up the ol' Etsy shop again in the near future.
Just want to build up some inventory first.
We went out for frozen yogurt this week...okay maybe twice this week.
It was delightful.
I had strawberry lemonade and strawberry banana with white chocolate chips.
I discovered this stuff this week.
It's about $4 and lasts all week...
which is great
compared to a $4 single trip to Starbucks.
It's faster too when you make the mad dash to preschool half awake.
I am a person that takes a picture of the screen on my laptop with my iphone
when I find something like this on pinterest
that I need to text to my family group text right then.
I so need an ipad.
Here we are on a family walk.
Mis-matched flip flops and rain boots with shorts is how we roll.
I'm on the hunt for some cowgirl boots for my upcoming pictures.
Somehow, I just don't see myself purchasing these hippie boots for $429.99.
But if I were rich...I could see myself rocking them.
I love egg drop soup.
And chicken fried rice.
And crab and cheese wontons.
And chatting over said goodness with my BFF.
And random trips to get our eye brows waxed.
And getting snail mail.
And chunky babies.
And hilarious you tube videos about instagramers.
P.S. I am loving my homemade laundry detergent! It does an awesome job cleaning, and leaves a nice, soft, faint scent on our clothes. I'm pretty stoked about it.

So funky and fun.
They are padded with fleece interfacing
have a little pocket for your lens cap.
If you are local and need one for a Mother's Day gift or a birthday or just because
let me know,
and I'll hook you up!

I'm not gonna lie.
I USED to think that only ultra conservative people that lived off grid in the country
made their own laundry soap.
But I have read several blogs of seemingly normal people
that make their own laundry soap.
So I was a little curious.
And I swear, I spend the majority of my life in that laundry room...
using a lot of detergent.
I've been researching recipes for a few months now, and finally found one I thought I might like.
I wanted something that worked and still made our clothes smell good.
Smell is important to me.
I found my recipe from How Does She.
The Oxy Clean and Purex crystals were optional...
but I have to wash Abby's clothes, so the Oxy Clean was not really optional for me...
and I like fresh laundry to smell good...because smell is important to me.
Like obsessively important to me.
Keep in mind my two optional ingredients I opted to include were nearly $20 of that total.
And obviously, the bucket and grater are reusable.
If you do 6 loads of laundry a week, it is suppose to last a year.
It only takes 1 to 2 Tablespoons a load.
A year people!
Is this really possible?!
I would say the hardest part was grating the bar soap.
Although I did feel rather proud, like I was a true pioneer woman doing it,
I would find a sucker to that part for you.
Your arm will thank you.
I will let you know how this works out for me.
I have always been very brand loyal to Tide...I love the smell of Tide.
So we shall see.
For right now, I am just excited to do laundry, so that I can try my new homemade laundry soap.
Whoa. Back the bus up! Did I just say I was excited to do laundry?!
This stuff is already working miracles.
