And this is the skirt.The sheet is also custom and it will be different shades of orange polka dots. I think it will be real cute. I'm then throwing in some other adorable prints for the chair, pillows, etc. I CAN'T WAIT for it to all be done. Should all come together within the next month or so I hope. Woohoo!!!
Anyhow, back to the weekend. With the downtime, Lola just trotted around the house and had a good ol' time. One of the things she loves is to put on her "dancing skirt" and "dance fast". I'm not sure why she says "dance fast" but this is her new thing. Of course, she never will "dance fast" by herself. Either Clay or I always have to be up and at em' with her. It was much harder for me due to my energy level but somehow I still toughed it out. Since I'm such an awesome dancer myself, I tried to teach Lo some new moves other than just moving her legs really fast and stomping around (aka - dancing fast). I tried to teach her to shake her booty and wave her hands in the air and some other technically challenging dance moves. I have to say she catches on pretty quick and has some groove. Attached are some pics from our very adventurous Saturday at home:
"Dancing fast" in her "dancing skirt". This went on for a couple hours.
Lovin' her new hat!
Riding her new vintage horsey that I got on the side of the road for $15. What a steal!!! Best deal of the year. I mean seriously...how awesome is this horse??? Pretty much old school all the way! Since we've had the horse at our house, we've had people tell us they had seen it in different areas on South Congress the weeks prior. Apparently this guy hauled this thing everywhere. Rumor has it that the night before we purchased it, the horse was at Continental Club and some intoxicated folk had a wild ride on this little guy. I'm glad it finally found a good home. Lola loves it too!
And, nothing like ending the night with some reading. Lola has always loved reading but right now she is obsessed with it! Literally, if she could do it all day every day she would. Although reading is beyond great, Clay and I don't have it in us to read the same books over and over and over. Sometimes we have to promote other activities such as lying still and doing nothing...that never works of course.
BTW...who has the buddha belly now??? Lola's is gone and mine is growing (along with other things but we won't talk about that now...ugh)!!!!
