I didn’t get a chance to share what I ended up doing for my costume this year, so I thought I’d share now.
I went as The Ice Bucket Challenge.
Hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween! Let me know what you dressed up as this year!
I meant to post this yesterday, but I forgot! Oh well, it’s up now. This is a Photobomb post from the trip Mr. LL and I took over Labor Day weekend to St. Francisville, LA. It’s a small town with old plantations. We stayed at the B&B at the Greenwood Plantation. We wanted to take the “Mystery Tour” at the Myrtles Plantation, but it poured down rain all Saturday and they only do that tour on Friday and Saturday nights.
Anyway, here are some photos from our stay.
I just thought I’d share some photos from our trip to Kemah, TX, last weekend. It’s a little town in between Houston and Galveston. We sort of randomly found it, but we definitely had a great time.
So yeah, that’s just some highlights from our little vacation. Here’s that link I promised to the rental property, Kemah Escape. It was a much needed break, for the both of us.
Also, on the way back, we stopped in Vidor, TX, at this extensive flea market that was just off the interstate. I forgot to take pictures, but the freakin’ thing has it’s own Facebook page! We got a couple of vintage board games there, and I can’t wait to try them out!
We also stopped at the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge, LA, on our home. I took no photos, and I still wonder why I thought I’d want to go there. I hate malls. But I got a cute pair shoes and some pretty smelling perfume. 🙂
The answer is: All Three.
So, I keep a planner and work out my posts for Lazy Lady, that way I can keep up with what I have photos of, what I need photos on, what I’ve written and so on. Well, I haven’t been keeping up with it. I usually have it with me almost anywhere I am; that way, when I get an idea for a post or something, I have it and can jot it down. I’ve been cleaning the apartment on the weekends while Mr. LL is working on a remodel job for some extra money. I just keep moving the planner around the apartment. ANYWAY, long story short, I have NO CLUE what I was going to do today. I think I was planning to do an update on my loom knitting, but I haven’t touched it really. I mean, I’ve worked on it, but really the progress isn’t even worth photographing. So, I decided to do a Link Love/Pretending to Craft/Photobomb post today. I have a huge craft Pinterest board, and I want to share some of the projects that I really want to do. I’m going to post images
Also, some of these won’t have a link to a tutorial because they are items that someone has made to sell or as art or what have you, and I pinned it as inspiration.
I love reusable grocery bags. I am currently heart broken that a certain cat peed on ALL of mine and I had to throw them out. I will of course be getting new ones, but I really want some produce bags as well. I’m sure these are better for like farmers markets, but I think they are light weight enough to work at a grocery store too. Check out the tutorial over on CraftStylish.
If we had beautiful shelves and more room, I’d totally make these. Sigh. Someday. But if you are ready to add some critters to your life, the tutorial is over at Design Sponge.
I’ve been wanting to make this “pocket watch” wall clock since I started doing crafts on this blog! Seriously! It’s day will come, but you can find it on Design Sponge.
Ok, so the website for this one is in Russian. I get the gist though. Take an oversized man’s button up, collar shirt and make an apron. If you use Google Chrome as your browser, it will translate the site for you, but it’s still not much a tutorial.
I wish I could figure out cross-stitching so I could do this awesome piece. The pattern is over on Etsy.
This is an inspiration Pin from Offbeat Bride’s website. Aren’t these amazing?
I hope you found some craft inspiration from this post. If you have any suggestions for crafts, let me know in the comments!
Remember how I mentioned I got to judge the National Beard and Mustache finals last year? Here are the photos!
2013 USA Finals, Beard and Mustache Competion; at the House of Blues, New Orleans, LA.
Today is my birthday and it also marks the first of the last 365 days of my twenties.
Every year for the past 5 years I’ve had an annual mustache party. The first four years, the mustache party was in honor of my birthday.
Last year, Annie’s wedding was too close to my birthday for me to want to have the mustache party then. Also, Mr. LL and I decided that from here on out, we want to have our birthdays be private, family affairs. We’re thinking long term and down the road when there might be little Lazy Ladies running around. Anyway, the 2013 Mustache Party ended up being the wedding shower my friends threw me.
So without further ado, here is the photobomb post for the 2013 Mustache Party.
Before I finish this post, I realize that it may be hard to tell that it was a Moustache Party. My hat was custom ordered by the same creator of my hat from last year’s party and it has a detachable mustache. Annie made chocolate staches on sticks and there were mustaches in all the flower vases. Also, we all did wear moustaches for a while, but it became too hard to drink our punch and eat our finger sandwiches so most of them ended up Annie’s fancy cups.
