Loose Ends-- Sometimes it is the little details that truly satisfy.
The details these days are fun and mundane. Just the way I love em. :) Emmett is still obsessing over letters. Coincidentally, he's also discovered how to unzip his pjs. And when the 2 coincide, I find a stash of letters IN his pjs. I read to Caroline's cla...

Diagonally Striped Maxi Dress: A 'Sort-of' Tutorial
As promised, a short explanation of my process. I can't REALLY call this a tutorial, because I didn't take pictures of each sewing step all along the way. But I can at least give you the ideas. Next time I sew one (because I'm sure there WILL be a next time...

Catchup: including Halloween and Election Day zoo excursion
What do you call the red sauce in a squeezable bottle that is required for fries and hot dogs? Cat-sup? Ketch-up? Catch-up?  Small tangent, but I always think of hotdogs when I say the words "catch up". Because that happens to be how I pronounce the sauce t...

Fall Farm Fun
Another fall favorite I'm going to miss: Jacquemin's Farm! Emmett loved the corn box. I think part of the appeal was that he didn't want to have to wear his coat (for some reason he hates it) and the corn box was sheltered in the barn away from the chilly w...
