Crafting With Kiki

We got up early on Friday to get ready for CRAFT NIGHT WITH KIKI! I was so excited the whole night before I hardly got any sleep! ...Actually, I didn't get much sleep because I was having contractions all night. I almost had Boz take me to the hospital because it got so painful, but still. 

Boz entertained Clementine in her room while I got dressed.

When Tom and Kiki got to our place I gave Kiki her belated birthday present (a crochet Bow and and a gold bike necklace) and the group of us decided to go to the grocery store to get stuff for dinner and booze for the boys so they would stay entertained while Kiki and I got our craft on.

Unfortunately my car wouldn't start. :\

We tried to jump it, but it just wasn't happening, so we had to cram everyone plus Clementine's car seat into Boz's tiny '87 Honda.

I got myself a strawberry plant! :3
Kiki wanted one too, but she was worried that the squirrels that live around her house would get to it.

Back home Boz cooked us turkey burgers and sweet potato fires!

What a man, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man.

and we had some crafty lady time!

Clementine helped Kiki with her bead making

her time was paid for in kisses

(I know it's hard to tell because of the tent I'm wearing, but I'm actually nine months pregnant and ready to pop at any second. I'm not normally this globular in the belly or blessed in the bust.)

After bead making we got to hooking, and the men got to drinking...

Boz's koozie has a whistle on it

They got so drunk they couldn't even finish one song.

But Clementine was an amazing leading lady. 

Things got a little silly after that. 
There were hungover boys sleeping all over my floor when I got up the next day. Kiki made chicken and waffles to help soak up the booze and I'm told that they were pretty amazing! 
Us girls had bananas and waffles. Yum!

I'm probably going to be updating every day for the next few days because I have lots of pictures to share. Father's day, some new crafty type projects, and nails! So be on the lookout for those if you're interested.

p.s. You should check out Kiki's Etsy shop citybirds! She has the most darling owl jewelry listed right now! I love it.
