Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! We have an exciting week coming up - Eric & I get to go to Big Bend National Park! We've been wanting to go for years since we've been living in Austin and finally get to go.

The biggest news though is that my brother & sister-in-law are having their baby next week!!! We are so excited for them and can't wait to meet our nephew. Send lots of positive vibes their way for a short and smooth delivery and a healthy baby C! <3 <3 <3

Louise Belcher Hat

A couple weekends ago I decided I wanted to dress up as something simple for Halloween. I'm very against store bought costumes, so I was left to think of a costume I'd want to make. We've recently become big Bob's Burgers fans and seeing my friend Ashley's daughter dressed up Louise became a joke that I should dress up as her, too.

I loosely followed this tutorial to make the hat, but did a few parts differently. It was a really fun hat to sew. I spent a good amount of time making it, but it was totally worth it. The end result is super cute and really comfortable. 

Here's a couple shots of me making the hat. I used 2 clothes hangers to form the ears.
