90's Dress Refashion

I don't sew very often.  And when I do, my projects usually fail, but once in a while it works out.  Like this time when I transformed an old thrift-store dress into a shirt.  Not too hard.  I mostly just had to shorten it.

Here's what it looked like before.  Too long for a shirt, too short for a dress.

After hemming it up I attached the crochet collar I made last year.  It goes so well with this!  I'm excited!

Decorating Eggs with Markers

This year we ditched the usual vinegar egg dye and decorated Easter eggs with permanent markers instead.  It's fun to switch it up once in a while :)

Photos of the Week

We're back from a trip to Southern Utah. Man, I am missing that gorgeous weather!


We hadn't been on a real vacation in almost a year and that is too long for us.  This one was a short one, but so necessary! We'd go insane without some fun breaks.

Our New Parking Strip Design


This post is dedicated to my hard-working husband.  (He totally wants me to write a post about his big yard project so I'll humor him..... he deserves it!)

 When we moved into our home the yard was a total disaster.  The parking strip in front of our house was full of weeds and ugly trashy trees.    After two years of cutting down trees, pulling out stumps, digging out rocks, sifting dirt, laying cement, and laying down some weed block, drought tolerant plants, rocks, and wood chips....... our parking strip is complete! 


We planted some Seaside Daisy, Basket of Gold, and Blueberry Ruffles Lavender.  So pretty!

I am so glad we decided to do this instead of the typical grass parking strip that requires lots of water- half of which ends up in the gutter.... wasted.  Yep, drought tolerant plants like these are the way to go here in Utah.  


What do you have planted in your parking strip?
