1.21.10





last night we had parker and lindsey over for dinner. sam cooked such a delicious dinner of potatoes, chicken, and broccoli. yum.
on their way over i got an email from my friend annette who is in the midst of designing a temporary home for gwyneth paltrow and chris martin. have you heard of them? she suggested i whip up a little something for apple and moses. i was thrilled. just a few problems...making my baby dresses in to a size 6 and what to make for little moses, and oh yea she needed them tomorrow...thank God for lindsey. she was a total pro and helped me through the entire process. she had patterns and cut pieces before i could catch my breath after running after parker and matilda. she's amazing. we also had some help from my sweet neighbor devyn, who kindly lent us a size 6 dress (i'll return it tomorrow, promise!).

without further adieu:



for apple



a cape for moses

i basically stayed up all night and got up super early to make this happen. it was just such a cool opportunity. i've been such a big fan of both of theirs for a long time. i finished them at 10:15 and was even early for work. i have to say tim gunn...i made it work! i kept imagining that i was on project runway, while i was sweating, ripping out stitches, and close to tears. i was on a total high when it was all said and done. it's amazing what we can accomplish when we're under the celebrity gun...now heroes, pizza, and a very early bedtime. you should see my house ca-razy.
