For that matter...do I even GET a spring break?! Why did we give that habit up after we graduated school?! Kids have all the fun...
Seriously. I've been going non-stop for the last few weeks. And there is no foreseeable end to this madness in sight with back to back trips for work travel, wedding planning, house guests, social obligations, & all the daily maintenance of life I seem never to be on top of (oh gym, how I miss thee).
I need a vacation...STAT!!
Sand in my toes, sun in my face...you know what I mean, right?!
But alas...there is no real vacation time on my calendar for MONTHS! What's a girl to do?!
Fear not...my mom has an answer for that. And like most of her answers...it comes crocheted & ready to cover whatever issue (or body part) may arise.
Introducing her newest cozy set...THE DREAM TRAVEL EDITION!
Can't "get away" to those far off places
for fun & adventure?!
Just close your eyes, slip on the cozies...
and let the vacation begin!
Logan & I had to laugh at how familiar this particular set of cozies seemed. It's like she brought the deck of cards we use for our daily lunch date cribbage tournaments to life!!
Is she spying on us?!
Whatever is happening, I used one of my recent cribbage hands to create a "stay-cation" story I can live with ('cause we ain't going nowhere for awhile...):
If you're not feeling like a KING OF DIAMONDS (no money, no energy, not a moment to call your own),
There is still something you can do FOUR your lady love...your QUEEN OF HEARTS!
Bring a different kind of sunshine to her world + saunter in wearing nothing but this palm tree...
And your time together will be ACES!!
Ok...I never promised the story wouldn't be cheesy.
Now, if you'll excuse me...I may not be getting any sand between my toes but I have a palm tree I need to search for cocoNUTS. Ahem...
And now, a few words from the best fiancé EVER...Logan (thanks for loving my crazy family, baby!):
It's so easy to get caught up in the flow of things, isn't it?
You work all day, and face it, when you get home...it's just a different kind of work. Cooking, cleaning, terrorizing a stinky cat.
Good thing my mother in law came to the rescue with an at home vacation kit.
It's been cloudy, a little cold...but have no fear! I can now put a palm tree on my junk and head straight for the sun with my new P'Cozy.
Nothing like a crocheted reminder from your MIL to take vacations into your own...er...hands?...slow down and enjoy the heat!
The Who's Who of Happyville
We're more like a cast of characters than actual grown-ups. We laugh a lot & have ridiculous conversations about crocheted covers for your naughty bits. Did I mention "we" is myself, my fiancé & my MOM?! For real. You can't make this stuff up. But we can share what our weird little minds do when we're not being productive members of society (although if you ask me...this project has been QUITE productive!).
First time bride at 41. I had 2 cats & my mom was one of my besties before I had a man. It was 4 decades...that doesn't just stop on a dime, ya know.
Artist at heart. Moved from NYC to Vegas for love. Found the woman of my dreams... and her crazy mom.
I got this...
Grandmother, retired social worker, & crochet enthusiast. Formerly known for her grandson's cute hats, she decided to change things up to get people talking about taboo subjects in a healthy way. You can take the girl out of Social Work...
