I’m still not a garment sewer but I’m going to try to turn these bits of fabric into a “Village Belle” costume from the live action movie Beauty and the Beast. The blue dress on the bottom (a German dirndl ...
Taken early this morning when the sun wasn’t quite up yet... our terrific trio: 50s gal, minion and Green Giant. Don’t be surprised if you see one or two of these repeated in the future!
Mal and I had to stop in the grocery store this morning to grab food for her Halloween party at school/gym AND look who we found in the freezer section... the good ol’ ❇️ Green Giant ❇️. 😜 And when ...
I’m not a garment sewer but am attempting to make Mal and @ri._be._flippin._ matching costumes. It’s going to be green on green on green with a little green on top. 😜
This girl had the best meet of her level 4 season yesterday, almost getting her best score yet on each event. And now she's off to north state in two weeks. #gochelseago
I think it's safe to say that the Wilke girls have officially crossed the line from liking their @americangirlbrand dolls to loving their #agdolls (me included! 😳) My parents visited earlier this month and I managed to convince my dad ...
I meant to post this before back to school.... Chelsea also learned some new things this summer. Including how to flip! Her goal for summer was to get her tumbling back tuck and she squeaked it in with just a ...
Happy first day of school to the fourth grader and second grader! (The sixth grader starts next Monday)
Tessa had an interesting summer... she quit gymnastics (again) at the end of June and then spent the rest of summer in different camps. She just finished a music camp and said it was her favorite of all. I think ...
Summer skills... so pretty and so so close on that second handstand! 👏🏻👏🏻 #level7hereshecomes
Going through fabric before putting it away... so glad Miss Goldilocks, I mean Gabby, was able to find a bed that's *just right* amongst the piles. Goofy dog. 😂
Sewing room is getting put back together! Having to clear out, sort through and fiddle with all my stuff has been an unexpected benefit of getting new floors. I've been able to get rid of stuff that I haven't wanted ...
Walls are painted, all trim has been touched up and the LVP (luxury vinyl plank) floor -- very durable and waterproof -- is being installed. Yippee!! #lulubloomsewingroom
Part of the carpet pulled up, floor outlets added and grey swatches painted. 🎉 #lulubloomsewingroom
This little lady was recognized tonight, along with several of her teammates, for outstanding accomplishments by Texas USAGym -- she is a level 6 bar state champion. #gomissmal!
Disassembling my sewing/office space, the upstairs common areas and loft because PROJECT: NEW FLOORS starts Monday! The electrician will be here to install floor outlets. Then I'll paint the walls a light greige. And if I have time before the ...
3 reasons why @sevenmilecafe is our new favorite restaurant: 1️⃣ pancakes as big as your head, 2️⃣ it's only 2.6 miles from our house, and the best reason of all 3️⃣ they have VEGAN pancakes, cinnamon rolls, butter, and even ...
Standing-in-line Day, otherwise known as going to Six Flags. Waiting for the Thunder River ride now, everyone's favorite except J but we drag him on it anyway.
We also hang out with a krazy* kangaroo when here. *he's either scratching his nails or going insane from being in captivity. Take your pick. 😳
When in STL, we ride camels of course.
Update on Chelsea: she passed the baked milk food challenge! 🎉🎉🎉 Such awesome news. And she made a new friend during the testing process (the 12 mo old little girl was doing an egg protein challenge). Related: Mallory's test numbers/results ...
This girl is doing a food challenge today to see if her body will tolerate baked milk (milk proteins change after being heated). Her doctor gives her about a 50/50 chance of passing (not reacting to the baked milk). They ...
I *finally* finished Chelsea's "Fairy Tale Friends" queen-size quilt. It's made of 100% @heatherrossinsta fabrics; ones that have a fairy tale feel (from Rabbits & Racecars through Briar Rose). There's no pattern; I framed fussy-cut pieces to create blocks and ...
Last day of 1st, 3rd and 5th... what will the summer bring? Whatever it is, we are ready!
☝🏻= my productivity this weekend = Tessa's quilt top and back pieced + sham fabric ready to send to the longarm quilter! 2 of 4 bed quilts for our family nearly done. #fullmoonforest #tulapink #lulubloomquilts
Class just finished and I feel like I'm gonna die.... 😵 being out of shape is 👎🏻. Wonder how long it will take me before I don't have to do the modified versions of everything?! 😏
Good times at the allergist. Chelsea is always congested/sneezy so her skin test results are surprising to me. Her skin looks *much* less reactive than Mal. Next step likely talking about allergy shots to help with their airborne allergens.
Here we go... summer gym membership starts today. My first step in rekindling a habit.
My new lunch spot... just out our back door. 😍 First phase of backyard project is DONE. Second phase (landscaping/plants) not for a year or more. More pics to come soon! #wilkeoutdoorproject
