We came back last night and had the BEST time despite the 2 hours of Thunderstorm that snuck upon us Saturday afternoon. The pictures tell the whole story ;)


Took a rest stop on our way to Ocean City. They had this cute little play area next to the Dunkin Donuts. Mehul just wanted to stay here and actually cried when we had to leave. He had enough of the car ride already! We stopped here again on our way back.

Mehul was seeing the ocean for the first time ever. We hadn't taken him to the beach yet. He loved it.

Another family had gone with us. Their son, R, is 3.5 years old. They became best buddies.

We had fun as well :)

Can you believe there was a huge thunderstorm around 2 hours after this was taken? They emptied the beach, we walked around the boardwalk a little and entered a restaurant for an early dinner when it started to rain. And stayed there for about 2 hours. The rain stopped but it was too cold to go back on the beach so we explored the area a bit and then went back to where our friends were staying and chatted until midnight.

Looking at cars outside the window at night..


The cottage we stayed at had a huge backyard with trees and flower & vegetable patches. Mehul loved the swings.

We went to Rahoboth Beach today. It falls in Delaware (which is a state without tax, btw, so I thought it made perfect sense to do some shopping. Didn't get time for that though). This beach is less commercialized than Ocean City and I definitely recommend going here.

More playing at the beach

And a lot of cheese puffs

The water was COLD!

We decided to look for food after this and kept the camera and all the stuff in the car. 10 minutes later I was wishing I had it with me as we found FunLand on the boardwalk. We bought $6 worth of tickets (20). Mehul took most of the kiddie rides twice and we still had tickets left over. So I went on a ride and finished them off. Gosh, they were really very cheap. Boardwalk fries were more expensive than ALL the rides we took. LOL!

While returning back, another thunderstorm caught us (don't know if it was the same one. Couldn't be) at the worst possible place. Over the Bay Bridge. That was really scary. I don't wanna think about it now that I've seen this picture.

I'm sad that I'm not on the beach as I write this, and already planning our next trip . Next time though, we'll just drive early morning and come back same day. It's only 3 hours away.

Looks like you all had a fabulous time! How funny, we also took Luke to the beach for the first time this past weekend, and he absolutely loved it. It wasn't his first look at the ocean (he went to the ocean pier as an infant), but it was his first time on the sand and in the water.

Itch to Stitch blog tour

Itch to Stitch blog tour Day 2

Sewing community is such a vast space spanning multiple continents and what brings everyone together is their love for sewing. When someone in this community is hurting, sewists all over the world come together to make it better. Our much loved designer, Kennis Wong - owner of Itch to Stitch Designs, was robbed a couple of weeks ago leaving her with no way to run her business. This blog tour is promoting Itch to Stitch patterns to make up for some of the monetary loss so she can be back on her feet and produce top notch quality patterns again!

I picked up the Newport top in the recent sale and wanted to make a nice top for this blog tour. I'm also really feeling the velvets this time of the year. Stylish Fabrics is one of the sponsors of this tour and I picked up mauve velvet and charcoal ponte to make my outfit.

The pinky mauve color is probably my all time favorite color for nail paint but I rarely wear clothes in this color. I'm not entirely s…

Mimi G Jeans in Simpli by Ti Stretch Denim

Mimi G Jeans in Simpli by Ti Stretch Denim
This is my most favorite jeans I have made thus far! It is Simplicity 8222 pattern by designer Mimi G. It comes with a quilted bomber jacket pattern as well that I will make some day.  What makes this my favorite is the stretch denim I used by Simpli by Ti! The denim has 25% horizontal stretch and is mid weight. It is very comfortable to wear. The color is much more vibrant in person than is on the Simpli by Ti sample photo!  The color in my photos is an accurate representation. It is the true denim color. 

I like the fit of this pair. I achieved the fit by first making all the length adjustments I need. I'm only 5' tall so I needed to take out length from the inseam and also crotch depth. The jeans are high rise and hips are drafted to fit 9" below the waist. I removed .5". I had made this pattern before and the rise is too long on that pair. One of the biggest changes I made to the pattern was to make an elastic waistband…

Sew what do I wear - Professional Edition

This is my first blog tour!! I'm so excited to be a part of the Patterns for Pirates/Made for Mermaids Sew what do I wear - Professional Edition blog tour!

If you're read this blog ever before, you know I love wearing handmade items to work. Ever since I started sewing, my ultimate goal and dream was to make a fantastic work wardrobe that would fit well, look nice, and be well received! I believe I am well on my way. 75% of what I wear to work these days is handmade. I'm still working on getting the fit dialed in just right but each garment is an opportunity to improve.

SOS Pants and Favorite Tee have been staples of my work wardrobe. If you have seen my Spring/Summer Sudoku you know that already :-) I made a couple of nicer additions for this blog tour. I wanted something a little special that would still work in a daytime work environment but elevate my looks a bit more.

I'd been wanting to do a choker neck Tee but didn't want a whole new pattern for it so I hacke…
