Ever feel like you're running so far behind you just want to run and hide? I've got a million "have to's" and "want to's" before our TRIP next week. Even if I stayed up every night until we board that plane I don't think I would get it all done so I'm having to let go of some of my projects, or at least postpone them a bit, and for my type A personality that's hard to do!

One project I did manage to finish is a sweet birthday hat for a friend. It's FINALLY on its way Heather!!!!! And since I made you wait so long, here's a little sneak peak :) I hope it matches your decor and I hope Miss Emily likes it!

One reason I've felt so tired is this little guy has decided 5:30, 5:45, 6:00 a.m. are perfectly acceptable wake up times. Did I mention I'm a night owl? We've tried everything and I mean everything including this and nothing works. JUST KIDDING!!! It was too funny a picture not to share ;)

In between all this catch-up, I did manage to win a fun little giveaway from Mary Janes & Galoshes!!! Yipee! I won this fun little stash of Erin McMorris fabric and vintage trims. Thank you Taylor!!

The fabric is GORGEOUS. It has a fun retro vibe to it and matches perfectly with a little tee I had in my project stash. Can't wait to show you what I'm making! It's all pinned and cut and if my little chunky monkey ever lifts his boycott on naps I'd be able to get it sewn without having to resort to this just to squeeze in 15 minutes to cut the pieces in between loads of laundry. For the record, he LOVES that piano! Want to know what else he loves? Not having to fight his big sister for playing time!

Somehow we've managed to squeeze in some craft time and some Mother's Day projects. And I should hopefully have a couple of fun tutorials to share with you after my trip, including an easy peasy, super fun one I'm taking on the plane to keep the little pumpkin busy for least 30 minutes?? ;)

I'm off to catch some zzzz's. 5:30 comes mighty early. Why is it that nighttime hours fly by so much quicker than daytime hours? Hmmm...

Jessica! The hat is soooooo adorable - Emily is going to love it so much! Thank you!

I can so relate to so much of your post - being behind, having no time to get things done because certain someones who shall remain nameless aren't great nappers (haha!), and the early wake up times. Carter also wakes up every day pretty much at 5 or 5:30, but I nurse him (yes, he is still nursing, but we are working on weaning - I haven't told him that, though!) and then put him back in the bed and he'll sleep till around 7-8. BUT - this only started recently where he will go back to sleep and he's 14 months.

Thanks again so much for the wonderful hat - I can't wait to see it in person! You are so talented!!!

Our wake up call has been 6am for years. No fun! I wish they would at least sleep in on the week-ends. LOL Love the sweet birthday hat. My little guy loves to play the piano too. Too cute to see Hudson with it in his play-yard. I guys gotta have his space.

Heather~ I think it's wonderful you're still nursing Carter! I wish I could have nursed Hudson longer :( The cutest part of the hat is the bottom - he, he, he - can't wait for you to see it!! It should be there by tomorrow or Monday at the latest!

Mary Beth~ Thank you so much! Your comment made me smile!

Angel~ You are so right! A guy DOES need his own space. Hudson was so happy to have that piano in there!
