Sharks and Shenanigans

Happy Monday!

Yours truly is sitting at home, rewatching Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives, and planning to sew a few projects because I took the day off. In all fairness, I needed this day – after the week and weekend I had this couldn’t be a more deserving treat to myself.

Just a few highlights from the weekend, because who wants to dwell on the crappies.

I’ve got some new blog bling thanks to @FemaleIMG_6212BloggerRT! I received this nifty little honor of being the Blogger of the Week. Who would’ve even thought little ol’ me would get something so cool? I’m not giving myself enough credit for the sheer awesomeness of Sevi.

I may or may not have shouted tweeted it to the world, screenshot the actually tweet they sent, and came home to tell WareBear how excited I was about being the chosen one (albeit, even if it just last one week).

So I’m going to milk this week for what its worth. I’m going to blog and tweet and Facebook because if the people want vodka, they’ll have vodka!

The rest of my weekend consisted of sewing, drinking, and being a miserable puddle of sickness. Friday ended with a nice cold beverage and a failed attempt at a baby quilt. Never have I spent so much time cutting up pieces, just for it to fall apart.

IMG_6219Don’t drink and sew kids. It’s not cute and you end up throwing your beautiful creation into the dryer to see that you did not sew one quilt square together. Thus, leading to it unraveling into a frayed mess.

I have been a little distraught about this project, so I’m back to the drawing board.

Lesson learned, don’t rush things.

My weekend shenanigans were not that great, but hey it was a weekend!



With Shark Week in full swing, I know that this week is going to be so much fun. Before I get into the week of the Shark, I have some very important business to attend to.

Since the people wanted vodka, I need to thank everyone who participated in my 100th post giveaway. I couldn’t thank you all enough for wanting to enjoy Sevi’s Favorite Things. The winner has been picked and she is much much deserving. So the winner is:

    Sewing and drinking sounds dangerous – glad it was only the quilt that fell apart and not you too 😉

    I’ve never seen shark week!! I think we still have TV…if not I’ll take to the interwebs! & I’m sorry your project didn’t turn out well — I’m surprised, what with that photo having one of the best drinks EVER in it!! 🙁 Sad day. But knowing you, you’ll just take that to town & bust out something even BETTER!! Woo!!
