Hello Blogland!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!! I’ve finally got all the pieces to the quilt project cut out and arranged. now to start sewing!
After helping with our church homeless outreach in town Friday evening the hubster and I went out to the new Sonic for dinner. It was nice but I wouldn’t go out of my way to eat there. The cherry-limeade was tasty but as far as I’m concerned the burgers and fries weren’t anything spectacular.
Saturday I spent the day cleaning and puttering after running some errands in the morning. Had to mail a package out and stop by the Mennonite Nursery for some corn on the cob (YUM) I managed to find a fairly decent yard sale to hit up.
The big pearl pendant has a cherub riding it–awesomeness. Those gold spiky things are clip-on earrings from the 60’s. The lady gave them to me when I oohhed and aaahhed over them. I’m thinking they NEED to be taking a trip to New Zealand to live with the amazing Ms. Helga Von Trollop..
Oh yeah–butt implants. I seriously have NO BOOTY. I’m the true definition of pancake butt. Jennifer Lopez has got more back then me–which considering my SIZE is really funny. It makes finding pants sometimes problematic–if it fits my tummy it often looks like I have a saggy load in the back. Add to that I’m also short-waisted and the crotch can be hanging down around my knees. I do a lot of alterations when I can to get pants to fit.
Two pairs I wore last week, the olive and the tan pinstripe, went in the give-away pile along with a pair of light blue denim crops. I just couldn’t alter them enough to make them work. Which is why it’s great to buy thrifted stuff– if it won’t work no biggie.
Sunday’s post for Visible Monday would not be complete without a photo of Her Majesty KaeKae. She was snoozing on her pillow in the Craft Palace snoring away yesterday afternoon.
Judging by what I observed at church today, it seems we ladies of a certain age have enthusiastically embraced the maxi dress!!! Everyone was raving about how comfortable they are!
I got the newest Roaman’s and Jessica London catalogs for Fall and they are showing Maxi’s for Fall/winter with boots and blazers. YAY!!! Some of mine will work well styled that way. This one won’t as it’s too summery but that’s ok. I’m looking forward to wearing others come cooler weather.
A dear friend gave me her Kindle2 (she got an Ipad) so I am off to learn how to play with my new toy!!!
