Fun Day!

Today's been a fun day so far and it promises to be more as the day goes on.

We had lunch on the town square with friends (Max decided he'd rather eat rocks than lunch) and then popped into the little antique shop (no finds today).

(yes that's my new scarf, it worked well to absorb sweat as it's 90+ degrees out today)

This afternoon during nap time, I worked on VBS music cds to give to all of the kids at our church and then was feeling a little crafty.

Max loves to cuddle with blankets and pillows so I decided to make him a pillow for his crib. I know normally safety called for nothing to be in the crib, but I figured he was big enough and lately I've found him using stuffed animals as pillows. I've always loved the toddler pillow from PBK, but I also know they cost $16 and that's without a cover. So I decided to make my own.

I have a lot of leftover sheeting (from curtain lining and other random things) and so I used that and some stuffing to make the pillow insert. Then I wanted a pillowcase that I could wash, easily put on, and looked finished. I made a pocket pillowcase with an overlap on the back and made two (this is for the kid afterall) and viola! cute kid pillow! (Fabric is vintage-y space theme that was actually a table cloth at one of my baby showers.)

Tonight Adam arranged a babysitter for Max so we could celebrate our anniversary a little late (it was last Friday) and I know we are going to Lariat Steakhouse and who knows after that, Adam's been trying to convince me to see Transformers, but I don't think I'll go for it. :)
