So, my plan to take a picture every few days of things I've been sewing all last week didn't exactly go according to plan. Therefore, pictures out the wazoo on this post. Honestly, besides working and musical practices 3 times a week, all I have been doing is sew sew sew. Sometimes, I even get on the ball in sewing and don't even realize the time and before I know it, it is 2 A.M. and I have to get up for work at 8. Needless to say, my body hates me and curses me in the morning. Yikes! I need to stop doing that. I only have a few more things I want to make before we leave for Michigan on Friday, but I'm not sure if I will have time with all the baking I have planned as well. I need to start doing some of those 5 hour shot thingies and work straight through the nights. Also, tonight was my grandmother's 90th birthday and tomorrow is my grandfather's 89th birthday. They had a big dinner party tonight for family and some friends. I appointed myself official picture taker since I have my nifty new totally awesome camera. However, at one point during the night my mother mentioned she still didn't think it took that true to life pictures like I wanted. And I scoffed. And I told her she was quite mistaken. And I told her no more of her blasphemy. She was quiet about it for the rest of the night. And, yep, that's all I am going to say. Short and sweet for once, lol.
And now on to my sewing adventures for the past week:
Tada. That's it. For now at least. I'm not sure if I will get to another post before we leave, but hopefully I will be able to blog a bit while in Michigan. It's with my mom's side of the family at my uncle's house so expect lots of beautiful family pictures with pretty ponds, trees, campfires...oh my I can't wait.

ago but hadn't worn yet. I also was determined to wear a hat, so I did, all day. I knew I was going to get stares from that one, though one lovely lady at Kroger told me she loved my whole ensemble...yay, someone has taste at least:D I just think its funny, because women used to never leave the house without hat on, especially to go to church. But now, when I wear just a dress to our church, I feel overdressed, let alone when I wear a hat too.

So, we went to the flea market, and it was almost as big as the one we go to normally each month, but I felt severely overdressed. I know from pictures I've seen from other bloggers, it doesn't matter where you go, you wear vintage....and I'm still getting used to this. Like, for example, there are certain places I will always wear vintage, and other places where I usually don't. Well, I wore vintage today (specifically, my suspender skirt I made and talked about in this post) to go to the estate sale, but obviously the flea market wasn't in the original plans, so I felt super over dressed. And, boy oh boy, did people stare at me. I don't think I went down one aisle where somebody in a booth didn't stare at me...and I wasn't the only one who noticed. My mom did too, and there was a couple of girls who started laughing and my mom wanted to go over there and punch them...not literally, she would never ever do something like that (I feel like I had to clarify that for those that don't know us). But still, it made me really self conscience and then I just got mad. I don't think I have ever been around a group of ruder people before Still not as bad as girl at dinner during my birthday, but still. I would have thought they had better things to do than worry about what I was wearing. Ohio obviously isn't as forgiving with what people wear as they are in like Oregon, or Washington. But honestly isn't it better that I am over dressed than say, for example, wear my dang pajamas to the grocery store. Whoever said that was okay and acceptable needs to be shot. Grrr... We didn't find very much since it didn't have the super nice quality things that our flea market has, but I did find a few hats and vintage compacts.

Right after dinner, I had musical practice. I still have not sung my song yet from the music we have. I know the movie version, but there are slight variations that I am not used to, and I fear that if I don't get the version we are doing in my head I am going to be singing the wrong thing, lol. After practice, I came right home and had my mother take pictures of me and my puppy. I think I may love my dog way too much. She still needs some camera lessons apparently, as if you couldn't tell from all the blurry wonder. Jeez Louise. Enjoy
