a few things on a friday night

I’m just stepping in to wish you a happy weekend! We have Monday off of work so it’s an extra long weekend for me. I’m planning on baking, working on projects, plotting birthday surprises for all my fall birthday friends and drinking lots of coffee!

We’re taking a little road trip this weekend and I almost forgot about it! We’re driving down to Greenville for AgapeFest, it’s the only student run music festival in the states. I love how artsy/musical my alma mater is and I miss it sometimes. Joel’s been working with AgapeFest for eight years and we still feel close to the kids who are running it this year. When they invited us we couldn’t say “no”!

I always make cookies for the festival staff. They work so hard all weekend, it’s the least I can do. So tonight I’m whipping up lots of batches of that good ol’ crowd pleaser, chocolate chip. Between baking and packing I’m working on this…

This lovely photo (and gorgeous fascinator) suit my mood perfectly!  I’m working on the prettiest bridal order, moss green cozies with creme flowers.  Love!  I’m hoping to fit some time in for some sewing (in between all the knitting) this weekend.   Maybe I can snatch a wee bit of time to make this clutch and I’m dreaming of making this dress:
