What I Wore, and Angry Birds

If I'd known how fun it was to open my own practice, I'd've done it years ago! I'm having a blast so far, but there's also new electronic medical records to learn, etc., so I haven't sewn or knitted much since May 1. I was going to sew up a criss-cross-bodiced dress I've done before with some huge sleeves to wear to an event where I received a community honor, but I just didn't have time, so I splurged and did a little shopping for ready-to-wear. I must've tried on seven or eight dresses before settling for this top with crazy drape. I already had the pants and Ivanka Trump purple suede shoes, so I was all set. The theme was Coastal Elegance, so it fit in just fine.


In other news, does anyone know why a crazy cardinal would be targeting my windows for the past 2 weeks? He (or she) has been flying into 3 big windows at various times of day, and doesn't quit until Jake or I walk up. That's why I had to video it from another window, and sorry it's kind of far away, but I think he hits the bedroom window about 7 or 8 times, then his mate comes to join in the fun. What up, angry birds?



Drew had an Eagle work day today for his Eagle Scout project, and I'm the proud owner of a couple of blisters from shoveling grass away from pavers, so I may go relax with some knitting now. You have a happy Mother's Day, why don't ya'!

I'm so happy for you about your new practice! So glad it is going well.

Your outfit is gorgeous! I wish you had sewn that top so I could steal your pattern idea. I have some Mood silk that I've been hoarding since my LA trip that would be really cool done in a shape like that. I think that being a sew-er (I can't bring myself to type sewer.), makes one a better RTW shopper.

Happy Mother's Day!!

Thanks, ladies! Glad everybody's getting some sewing or knitting time in, and Becky, that's just a basic tank (no zip or any type of closure) with an extra drape across the front - you could totally draft one. And it did kill me a little to buy it - off to my sewing room to finish that dress I started originally....

Thanks, Ann. The birds will hopefully wear themselves out before they wear my windows out!
