Tahoe and McCall's 6435

I don't want to make you jealous with this post, but I want to say that I had the most amazing weekend at Lake Tahoe!  It was my first girls' weekend in more than 5 years and I savored every minute!  I kissed my three little ones goodbye on Friday afternoon and took the 2 1/2 hour drive with 3 awesome ladies to this cozy cabin in Tahoe City.  We had cocktails, hung out in the hot tub, (yes, a hot tub.  Baller status), and partied at Mont Bleu on Saturday night.  I was waaaay too excited about clubbin' it up, but my dear friend Kary humored me and DD'd so I could relive my early 20's.  Now that's a good friend:)  I will not be posting a picture of myself from the club because when I indulge in adult beverages, my right eyelid gets a little droopy and I look way drunker than I really am.  But, I will share some pics from our gorgeous hike on Saturday morning and some of our cute little house!

 It was such a relaxing time, and I feel like I definitely recharged my "mommy batteries."

I got home on Sunday afternoon, so I was able to finish a couple of projects today, including two more versions of McCall 6435.  The first is for my friend (sorry it took me an extra week, girl!  I will be mailing it tomorrow!), and the second is for me:)  The pink in the first one has this subtle sparkle, which is so cute, and the second top is this pretty heather sage color.

I ended up cutting a size 8 for these second two versions and the fit is perfect!  I love this shirt and I'm not tired of making it yet!  I still have one more version in mind with a navy blue knit with little yellow pineapples all over it.  If you don't have this pattern, get it.  It is quick and so cute.
