. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Dear Lauren in Law,

January 24, 2012

Dear Lauren in Law,

 1. Do you like your new name?  Now it will be easier to differentiate between my two Laurens.  


  Shirt: Old Navy  Skirt: Handmade   Boots: Kohls

2.  I made this skirt this weekend.  I followed these directions, but things did not go as well near the end so I kind of made up my own steps and it turned out okay!  Thank goodness for the stretchy knit fabric, otherwise it would not have fit.  
I'm really not sure about this whole making my own clothes thing.  While I did feel very accomplished, it took a long time and the fabric was cheap but still cost money.  I'm pretty good at finding cheap clothes so I'm not sure if it is worth it?  

3.  I can't wait until you live here for many reasons.  One being that you can then watch the Bachelor with me on Monday nights.  

4.  I wanted to try to take a picture of my whole skirt, and therefore tried to take one of my backside.  I clearly did not succeed in taking a good "model" pose.  

I should learn to fully commit like you did in this picture: 


I'm still learning. : ) 

I love you Lauren!  Can't wait to see you next weekend. 

Love,

P.S.  I added some new items to my Etsy shop. I made some of my little make -up bags that I shared a few weeks ago.  I'm excited to add different kinds of items to my shop!
