Sushi Persistence

Happy Halloween everyone!  Little Mister will not stand to wear any sort of hat or headpiece so all those cute costumes on Pottery Barn and Chasing Fireflies would not suffice.  I was even willing to suck it up and not come up with something clever and handmade.  But alas, given our dilemma and that he's about as stubborn as they come, I decided to make something anyway (I'm pretty stubborn, too).

I was inspired by this guy and I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Except Little Mister wasn't.  This is how the dress rehearsal the night before went:

The struggle leading up to it was even more dramatic.  Let's just say both our hands were full.  I asked him again this morning if he wanted to wear his costume and I got a resounding, "NO."

I brought it to his school anyway just in case his teachers had more luck than I did.  Thankfully, they did and for the Halloween parade, he marched around like a champ and we won First Prize!

I was feeling pretty daring this past weekend.  (Plus, Matt was away watching the Rangers lose Game 3 of the World Series - jealous)  So with Little Mister snoozing away I decided to play with a little something I picked up at Target.

Ok, I'm sure you can see that it's already chipped up and looking nasty.  That's because I forgot I had to do dishes right after.  I know, I know - rookie mistake.  Granted, this is the first time I've done my nails in YEARS but I love them!  :)
