Hazy, lazy, crazy...

Hazy, lazy days of summer?  Not quite.  More like crazy and fast-paced.  I always thought summer was a time to sit back, unwind and relax, but maybe living a Jimmy-Buffet-song-summer is just wishful thinking.  Even when we have some time to sit back and relax,  "just relaxing" with 10 month old twins  is close to impossible.

Our next two weekends alone consist of a 2.5 mile race (call me a dreamer, but I'm shooting for under an hour), hosting a Fourth of July BBQ party, a surprise birthday party, a 1st birthday party, a retirement party, my big brother's birthday and my bestie's twins' 2nd birthday party...oh yeah, and an aromatherapy bath/swedish massage scheduled right in the middle of it all; which can't come soon enough!  The race is a goal I set for myself back in February when I was going to the gym religiously.  Unfortunately, I haven't been to the gym since returning to work in March, but I said I'd do it, so I will.  I'll be proud of myself when it's all over, right? Proud, sore, sweaty, sore and most likely sore.

I've really been slacking off in the sewing room, but I have my reasons... I have a baby shower to plan!  My good friend Danni is expecting her first baby (it's a boy!) and I'm throwing her a shower with our work friends.   I've chosen a theme which seems to be a popular one, even thought I thought I had come up with something original, so stay tuned for a future post on a construction themed baby shower.  Picture yellow, orange, black and white, construction cones and hard hats.  Hopefully I'll be back in the sewing room soon, as I have a few more pillowcase dresses to whip up, and a camera strap to re-do for my sister-in-law, Janet (I botched up the dimensions on my first attempt. *oops*),  and a quilt for the baby shower's guest of honor (you'll probably be getting a raincheck, Danni!)  Then, I'll begin preparing for Andrew and Wesley's party ;) Aw, who am I kidding, I've been working on that since October of last year!

July will be here tomorrow, so I say goodbye to the 30 Days of Dan (hope they were good!), an early Happy Birthday to my big brother Joe,  Happy 2nd Birthday to Zoey & Stella, and Happy Birthday America ;)
