I felt so blessed to be invited to attend Women's Retreat with my church this year. I've always looked forward to the day I would be considered adult enough to get to participate. I know my mother has had the best times going on retreat with the women from my childhood church, in fact she loves them so much that even though we've moved away she still goes on retreat every year with them!

I mentioned earlier that I have a new job, I'm working as a Temp. Specialist in a local school. It's a step up from being a substitute and I couldn't be more excited! I'm treated as a real staff member and even have my own classroom! (of course I'm still paid like a sub and am not even eligible for BITSA- a teacher induction program I need desperately!) But onto the good stuff, my new room!

After viewing all the beautiful fall subway art printables I decided my fall decorating would not be complete until I had one in our home too. This began the quest to find the perfect one. Unfortunately it did not yet exist. Thank goodness I'm married to an awesome graphic designer, because in just a few minutes he whipped this up for me!

Apparently I have a lot of tea, and my boxes were getting out of control. Now I know it's hidden behind closed cupboard doors, but opening up a chaotic cupboard can have an affect on your mood. I'd go in looking for something and it would be frustrating to have to dig to find it. Now I don't have to do that!

The crazy lady that I am, I decided to start sewing a new gown for this weekend's event on Tuesday.
Here's the pattern and the new fabric. I used the JP Ryan Robe Anglaise pattern view A.
Lucy enjoyed helping me.
By Friday morning this is how far I had gotten.
I can't believe I did it, I finished the gown by Friday afternoon before we left for the event. There will be more pictures to come soon!
