Jeans: Banana Republic

I had a fun filled day at the Social Security office...NOT. Well, I was really there, but it wasn't fun. I'm not a fan of crowds or waiting. You don't even want to see me at Disney World!!!
Anyways, I finally was able to wear this lilac cardi I have had FOREVER (like 6 months). See, I bought it and a button fell off immediately. I am NOT going to wear anything with a missing button. Actually, the button wasn't missing. It sat on my counter for about 3 months. I then moved to Colorado and then it really went missing. Why didn't I sew it on you may ask??? Well, it is because I don't know how to sew on a button. Yep, I am pretty much a useless female.
A few weeks ago when my mother-in-law visited (I save all my sewing projects for when she visits so she can do them for me) I told her I didn't know how to sew on a button. She was pretty shocked since she knew my mom was a pretty good seamstress. What can I say, my mom never taught me how to sew on a button, boil an egg or fold a fitted sheet.
Well, Brenda taught me how to sew on a button and my lilac cardi was saved from a life of purgatory in my closet:)
But, what about the missing button? I just so happen to have a jar full of antique buttons (solely for decorative purposes). We found a similar button in said jar and just used it. Can't even tell. I now consider myself an expert button sew-er, on-er.
