PJ's made from "vintage" sewing pattern and denial

I'm in denial.  First, I can't believe that my trusty little boy pj pattern that I used so many times for my boys is now considered "vintage"!  What?  I know.  Well, my oldest is twenty three.  But vintage!  Lol.  Where the heck does time go?  Second, I should absolutely be packing and purging right now but I have "analysis paralysis".  We are moving.  Again.  In two weeks.  Denial.  This makes our fourth move in the three years that we have been here.  Ugh.  I made Dave promise me that this is it.  Next move is final.  We need roots.  Until then, I am proof that "home is where the heart is".  

Here are the little jammies I made for our adorable nephew who is turning one this month.  I also made him a 'little guy' back pack.  No pattern for that, just winged it.  Inspiration from pics on the internet and a ladies back pack pattern that I already had.  Simplicity1823.  PJ's are from my "vintage" pattern See & Sew 3297.

Hope you are enjoying your summer so far.  I'm off to pack now....or maybe a quick paddle board ;)

Where Have I Been?

On a little vaca.  Well, vaca for me, mostly work for hubby.  It was a long two weeks, but nice.   Just a glimpse here.

Look at the picture above and below.  See any similarities? Crazy!

(I ordered this salad for breakfast one morning.  Looks great right?  There are eggs, bacon, cheese, veggies.  Basically an omelet without the butter.  You would have thought I asked the waitress for Frankenstein balls.  Seriously.  Totally threw her for a loop.  Mimosa please.  Orange juice is good for you.)

I will reflect back on these moments over the next three crazy months.  Lot's of change taking place this summer.  Business and personal.  All good.  Life is good.  Thank goodness for flowers, oceans, rivers, beaches, beach bags, bikes, books, good food and alcohol.  =)
