Cute Bag via La Maison Reid

After finding this blog, and more specifically this super cute bag at La Maison Reid, I decided I had to at least try to make it!

Now, I am NO expert sewer, but I can thread a needle, so I decided to give it a shot and here is what I got!

Now, it took me longer than Mrs. Reid for sure, but I learned a ton! I cannot wait to make another one and use actual burlap. 🙂


Long Time Gone

Well blog buddies, it has been exactly two months today from my last post about Palm Sunday. LONG time gone! The world around me has been crazy busy: the end of my husbands 1st year of law school (cheer!!), the end of my fifth year of teaching (cheer!!), the start of summer (cheer!!) and I started graduate school (what!?!).

Yep, that is right, I am getting my Masters! My husband is going to be in school for three more years, so I figured this was the perfect time to go back. Yes, we spend A LOT of money, time and energy on education…but really, isn’t that one of those top-priority things? 🙂

So, my posts might be few and far between for the next year or so because of all of the information I am pouring into my brain…or it could be because SOMEONE (hmm…) stole the battery out of my camera and it is one of those special batteries that you cannot buy at Walgreens! Ugh, blogs with only words are never any fun.

I did borrow my brother’s camera for our trip to New Orleans last weekend. We needed a party break!! Here are a few of my favorite pictures of the sights. If you listen really hard, you might be able to hear amazing jazz music in the background and smell the BEST coffee (with chickory it tastes like chocolate, who knew?!).
