. . . for Lauren and Lauren: High Five for Friday

March 15, 2012

High Five for Friday

 dress: Kohls   shirt: Old Navy 

1.  The last two days have been above 75 degrees, which is about 20 degrees higher than normal. 
Which means I dug out some of my summer clothes yesterday and am hoping the warm weather stays! 

 2. Apparently this is what it looks like to have a baby.  
At least in the mind of an 8 year old.  


3.  I made these for breakfast the other week and they were delicious!
I'm thinking I should make them again this weekend.  

pb banana oatmeal breakfast squares 

4.  I made this little set of bean bags for one of my friend's son's birthday. 
It's always easy for me to find gifts to make for girls, but boys are a little more challenging. 


They were really pretty easy.  
I cut out the squares and then used double sided adhesive to iron on the letters. 
I sewed around the letters, then sewed the bags front side in. 
Flipped them around, filled them with beans and then sewed around the edges of the beanbag. 

My only advice would be to make the hole big enough so it is easier to put the beans in. 


I'm happy with how they turned out and hope he likes them!

5.  My spring break is one week away.  I don't have any big plans but am so excited for a week off of school!

Happy Friday!

Hey, I'm just impressed that the 8 year old seems to grasp what a time line is (and can spell) better than my 10 year olds...
Happy Friday!

that drawing made me giggle! kids are so cute. ;)

& the beanbag gift for a little boy is a great idea! boys are definitely more of a challenge to sew/craft for.

Diane said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Great job on the beanbags. You are really using your sewing machine. The oatmeal squares look good. Is the recipe on Pinterest?

memory said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I went shopping for clothes today and I wanted to cry. It was SO frustrating. If only I can be as cute as you! You make it seem so effortless with all of your awesome outfits.

Maybe I should make and eat some of peanut butter {love that stuff! especially crunchy} banana oatmeal squares to cheer me up. C:

Thank you for your comment on my "i am happy" post... I'm happy it's the weekend too. Hope you have a great one!
