the weekend!


This weekend was a nice, full one! I spent Friday night soaking up the sun (and beer) on the rooftop of Merle's.
On Saturday morning, Loren, Adam, RJ & I ran the Summer Breeze 10k. It wasn't my best run, but Loren & I got to catch up and burn enough calories for a great brunch!
Speaking of...we went to Jelly afterwards, and it was so, so good!


Later that day, after a nice little nap, we met up at Punch Bowl Social to celebrate Loren's 30th birthday with some bowling! I don't think anyone will get offended if I mention that we are not very skilled bowlers, but I think we really started to improve by the 2nd game. I snagged these pics from RJ!


A few weeks ago, I had mentioned that I wanted to spray paint my kitchen chairs, but with an apartment, it'd be difficult to find space. Jaime offered up her backyard/alley and yesterday, we got to business! In this scenario, I had your classic "wing-it" attitude, but Jaime did some google-ing and the chairs turned out pretty well! Unfortunately, one of the paints stopped spraying and it started to rain, so we're going to continue the project this week!
I'm also re-doing a bar cart, so I'll be sure to post pictures of that!

'Lil Madeline


One of my favorite things to sew is definitely these little dolls! Of course you've already met 'Lil Katherine & 'Lil Mary Fancypants. So as Madeline's birthday approached, I had some ideas in mind! 
I tried to fashion the doll as close to the Madeline in the book as I could (without having to sew a jacket).

 

And Madeline likes Madeline!
 

 I've only been to visit Madeline a few times since she was born, so our Facetime game has been pretty tight this past year. I can't wait to squeeze her in July (you too, Roey!).
