It's been a crazy last couple of weeks around here! So to 'catch up' I am going to do bullet points with some pictures thrown in.

- We took a long weekend trip to Minnesota at the end of October. Lee's entire family was there. We came from 5 different states to all be together for the Ohio State football game, family pictures and 3 October birthdays!

- The day after we came home, Carter, Hudson and I came down with the flu and fevers... fun times!

- Lee and the boys had a bachelor weekend while I went home to Lincoln. Both of my sisters were there and we celebrated my Mom's birthday! I bought her this not so cute Halloween decor only because she wanted it every time she went to Hancock Fabric store. I found it for $1.99 on clearance!

-I have been having great success at my craft shows! Last weekend in Lincoln I sold 9 dresses! Here are a couple new fabrics I made this week!

Little blue hearts in the fabric...look close!

Love these fun colors!

- Lee is bravely traveling with the boys to Omaha this weekend. I have another show this weekend. Miss my boys already, but excited for them to see both sets of Grandparents and their cousins!

I started sewing in August. Well, technically learned to sew when I was tween, but hadn't used a sewing machine in years. After my Mom helped refresh my memory of a few things, it really is easy! I am loving it!

My friend Carrie is so nice and is lending me her machine....but, I needed something to sew! This is the funny part... I started sewing little girls pillowcase dresses. They are so fun to make, I love choosing fun fabrics and honestly its very rare that I get to buy something for little girls (love my boys)!

I named my little company Pink Dreams. I don't have a website yet, but am working on it!

This is a picture of my booth set up at my very first Fall Boutique show. I have several more lined up for the rest of the year.

Here are a couple close ups of the dresses!
