Vinegar and Honey

Fancy girl!

It’s been too long since I’ve blogged something I’ve made for the Princess. I was a bit scared off by the whole stolen photo debacle (which we did manage to correct), and the fact that she’s less than cooperative when it comes to modeling. My sons can be encouraged (read: bribed) to pose appropriately- baby…

Chelsea Pants Week: Day 3

Are you sick of Chelsea pants week yet? You can’t possibly be, because I have still have more looks to share and I’m still O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D with this pattern! (Did you miss Day 1 and Day 2? Check them out and then come back!) Today’s look is more casual than yesterday, more of an everyday look.…

That Girl’s Got Moxi!

According to the Urban Dictionary, “moxie” means “sass, spunk, attitude” and can also be used to refer to  someone as a “hot chick”. I’m not sure about the latter (I’m in my 30s now, I think only my husband still says this about me), but the former certainly describes how I feel in these shorts-…
