Do you ever have those moments where you're all prepared to do something and then you realize you're missing a key element? It happens to me all the time when I go to cook something and then see that I forgot to buy a crucial ingredient. I bought these gorgeous stone beads a while back to make a chunky necklace but never got around to buying a clasp, wire, crimp beads, etc.

This morning I went to the craft store and rounded up the rest of the materials, only to get home and realize the wire I bought is way too thin and can't support the weight of the stones. Sigh. I am determined to make this necklace this weekend, so I guess it's back to the craft store tomorrow. I'm trying to convince myself that this necklace will somehow curb my desire for the JCrew glass bead necklace I mentioned a couple of weeks ago.

I was up all night with a sick baby (i.e. my miniature Pomeranian Heaven). Hubby is still in Vegas, so I am trying to manage being a single parent. I have had my hands full with her. She seems to be feeling better today, thank goodness. She is napping right now in a pile of her daddy's laundry.

I'm going to try to be very productive this weekend since I'm home alone. On my To Do list is mounds of school work, steam cleaning the carpet, and making a king cake. I am also dying to get started making a dress from one of my vintage patterns if time allows. Hubby will be home early Sunday morning, so I am hopeful we have time to squeeze in a little date after church.

Hubby actually admitted that Bette Midler's show was very entertaining. Last night, he ate at Mario Batali's. Last night, I ate Ramen noodles. Sometimes life just isn't fair.

I think you just might outdo the J.Crew necklace. It was beautiful, but I LOVE those beads! I can't wait to see the finished product! Have a great weekend!

He's lucky that he's in Vegas, I want to go back there so badly! When ever I go I always see huge billboards for Bette Midler! I bet he had fun. Don't worry you can get him back soon with your own vacation!
