are we there yet?!

a self-portrait? ...perhaps
And we're off! A few days ago, it dawned on me that I was about to get into the car with my 3 year old and not get out again for 7 hours, and then go to bed and get up and drive 5 more. I sprung to action! (clearly this means I perused Pinterest for 2 hours looking for some ideas). I got quite a few from the genius mommy's out there, and the next morning set about bringing them to fruition.

One idea that a friend and I have had for quite some time was to create a DIY felt faces activity - we had been inspired by this pin. The felt and googly eyes had been purchased, and this car trip was just the motivation I needed to complete start it.

Now, some people who know me are probably like wha??? She's touching felt? Voluntarily? I am 100% repulsed by the feeling of felt. It makes my skin crawl (and I'm not even being dramatic). I did a quick google search to see if maybe this was an actual thing, but its not. Just me. But the thought of incessant singing of Farmer in the Dell, or Foomoo in the Doo, or Feemee een thee Dee, or pick your own idea of torture - made me overcome it very quickly, just this once.

I'll be back next week, hopefully a little tanner, a little more relaxed, and with some wonderful memories of me and my girl.

til the shovel pales,
