I'm Back!!!!

4:24 PM 7 Comments A+ a-

I made it back late Wednesday night from my excellent, amazing, memorable and exhausting trip to NYC! I can't wait to show you all the gorgeous fabric I bought and some of the finished items I made for the trip! However, I was dumb and came back to town just in time for 2 days worth of work craziness and a weekend trip, so those things will have to wait...


Yeah, I met Swatch at Mood. No big deal...

In the meantime, two lovely ladies gave a blog award while I was gone!



Big thanks to the fabulous Vicki of Ruffle & Whiskers who's Mad Men inspired dress is a stunna and to Crissy of Adventures in Adventuring who is a fellow citizen of the Alamo City and who makes fab vintage inspired clothes. We need to meet up soon girl!

So here are 7 random things about me as per award requirements...

1. I have a green bathtub and it is one of the great loves of my life.


2. I have a real thing for suits and other "business attire". Dressing up for work was something that really excited me when I graduated from college. I sometimes dream of having a non-9-5 job, like being a full time blogger or owning a catering company or vintage store, but then I realize that I couldn't wear suits...


3. I adore living in San Antonio and I am definitely one of those obnoxious Texans who is crazy proud of her state. I have traveled to some fun places but I've never been somewhere I'd rather live. It's warm, the people are fabulous and the food is great. Come visit me!


4. As an adult I swore I would never get a pet. I didn't miss the fur covered clothes of my youth. But then I found this tiny yellow girl abandoned on the street and crying and decided I had to take her in since we're both blondes. She is a total crazy sassy nightmare but I love her to pieces.


5. I am a tequila girl. It is by far my favorite liquor and I usually have 3 or 4 varieties in my house. I love it straight on the rocks but I'm also a huge sucker for margaritas. If I don't have at least one a week I get grumpy.


6. I have this dream of buying a vintage travel trailer, fixing it up and going camping all over the place with the boyfriend. Still on the lookout for the perfect one...


7. Tuna melts are my favorite sandwich and pretty much the only thing I order at Subway. This is the one I attempted to eat at Carnegie Deli last week. Shockingly, I didn't make it all the way through...

 


PS did you know that Gertie's book is already available for pre-order on Amazon? Yes, I have been checking every few weeks to see if it was and yes I pre-ordered it today. Also, you're welcome for letting you know...

Almost Friday Darlings!

Can't wait to see your purchases! Is that a Mood wall of buttons I spy there?

I have a pink bath in my 50's era apartment, and I love it to bits! Green would be equally as awesome.

I was born in San Antonio but we left when I was 3. I haven't been back, but my parents keep promising they'll take us down there to eat some Tex Mex. Most importantly, are there good fabric stores??
