A Get-Things-Done Day

Do you ever have those days when you realize there are a lot of things to get done in the day?  Unfortunately, sewing will probably not be one of them.  The nice thing is looking back at the day and realizing how much you accomplished (sometimes).

Wash the dog--check
Wash the kids--check
Wash 4 loads of clothes--in progress
Wash the kitchen floor--not checked
Vacuum the whole house--check
Replace door stop that said kids broke--check
Replace kick plate on the front door to match the new doorknobs--check
Clean the high chairs and wash covers--not checked
Pack for my trip tomorrow!!!--not checked

And, maybe eat a few of these along the way..... I found them at Target last night.  I love when these show up in stores.  My husband hates them so I get to keep them all to myself.  Thank goodness the bags are small.

Here are the final contestants for my scrappy mug rug for the swap.  I'm still debating on a design and which fabrics will make the final cut.


  1. I LOVE mint M and M's!!!!! Unfortunately, the rest of my family does too, so I usually don't get as many as I'd like ;-).

  2. Brett brought home some mint M&M's last night too. It's one of my favorite parts about Christmas. I'll have to find you online this afternoon to hear about the trip you're going on.

  3. That was my day yesterday. Right down to the candy (except I was sneaking it from my 4-year-old's Halloween stash!). I didn't do any sewing, but was happy with everything else I got done. Now I'm ready for some serious sewing today!

  4. What?! How can I have never tried mint M&Ms?!?! I must get some at the store tonight as I'm sure they'll be my new favorite.

    Love the fabric choices. You'll have to tell me how you like the mug rug swap. I think they're so cute, but my husband seems to think they are useless and will just take up valuable real estate in our kitchen.

  5. Those are fantastic fabrics! I keep missing the mug rug swap sign-ups. Maybe next time I'll hear about it in time and be able to join in!

  6. Mmmm! Mint M&M's!!!! Gotta go get some! Have fun with your fabric choices : )

  7. Looks like you accomplished a lot on your to do list! Have a great vacation!! Love all of the fabrics that have made the semi final cut for your mug rug swap.
