Fabulous Finds Friday & Friday Confessions ~ May 15th

Welcome to Friday! And welcome to Fabulous Finds Friday and Friday Confessions!

Just a few fabulous finds for this week, but this first one is a goodie so it makes up for the lack of other fabulous finds. I ran across this website ~ Awkward Family Photos ~ yesterday and just about died laughing. There’s not much better for a good laugh than a bad family photograph. Check out the site and enjoy! In the meantime, here are a few of my favorites {and believe me, it was hard to pick just a few!}:

My other two finds are sewing~related ~ I saw this adorable little bitty bug pincushion pattern on several different websites {remember my love of pincushions?!?} and may have to make one this weekend. I love how teeny and cute it is! I have a big ol’ ugly pincushion from Joann’s that I use while handsewing, but considering I only have one needle in it, I really could get by with something smaller. This pincushion is perfect!

I also found this cute yoga mat strap pattern that I thought I’d share. I sure don’t need one as the only journeys my yoga mat makes are to the living room and back from its storage spot in my sewing room, but I thought it was worth sharing! Perfect if you travel back and forth to a yoga or Pilates studio!

Now onto my confessions…

~ I have always HATED dirty dishes left in the sink (as mentioned here and here). Without a doubt, it was one of my biggest pet peeves. Until now. As we are sans dishwasher and have to wash everything by hand, I’ve discovered that I don’t so much mind leaving the dishes in the sink to be dealt with later.

~ I totally dropped the ball on Mother’s Day this year. Saturday at noon, I still had no idea what to get for my mom. Best Boyfriend in the World to the rescue! He suggested we take a portrait of ourselves in his photography studio, get a few copies printed up at WalMart, and buy nice frames for them. Voila! Great present for both of our moms and my grandma!

~ I love having a clean house. But I hate to clean. So far, I haven’t figured out a resolution to this problem… Well, in a way, I have ~ I don’t clean as often as I should. Bad Heather. Don't tell, okay?

Have a fabulous weekend! I know I will ~ I'm turning 29!!!

I have a solution to the clean house problem! Hire a maid! Granted, not the most cost efficient....and I haven't figured an alternative....but someday, I will not have to clean my toilet. Someday.

And Happy Birthday! That photo is great. :D

I think your Mothers would have really appreciated and awkward photo of the two of you....

I think a lovely portrait of you guys, making out while wearing full on bow-hunting gear, would look beautiful on anyone's mantel!

Happy birthday you young pup!
