I don't know about the rest of you but I am so ready for the weekend. Life is pretty busy these days, work is picking up again which makes the days go by faster and my wallet a little fatter and my stress a little lighter, all good things. Tomorrow I get to hang with Cristi and sell some leggings here and see a bunch of art and hopefully become inspired. I feel like making something but all I seem to do lately is write, which feels pretty cathartic all on its own.
You know what else feels good, my clothes.
My new obsession is flowery scarves, shawls whatever you want to call them.
I also love my new hat which was thrifted of course and all of $3.
I'm starting to get used to this roller coaster ride called life. Yesterday was a hard day but today I feel better. This weekend Cristi and I will be spreading the legging LOVE selling KISS ME KITTY at the Buckman Elementary School Art show. There will be about 140 people selling their stuff, come on out and say hi and spend some money.
Here are just a few of my favorite pairs of Kiss Me Kitty leggings.
These are crazy metallic gold.
One of my very first pairs and the only one like this she made.
These are my most comfy pair below.
I need to wear these ones more.
These are probably the happiest pair I own.
The ones below were my very first pair.
Who can resist a sugar skull, not me!
Lisa Frank inspired.
KMK signature mermaid leggings.
I think she might bring some dresses too.
Anyone who shows up will be smothered in hugs and legging LOVE. Hope to see some of you there!
My Dad just called me after having a conversation with his doctor. He was informed that they did do a biopsy and his merkel cell cancer has indeed spread to his pancreas and liver. He told me that he either misunderstood what he was told or was in denial. Either way the prognosis is not good. We were all so up on Friday, celebrating and just being in the moment. I feel like the wind has been knocked out of me, I can't imagine how my Dad feels right now processing all of this. I finally cried on the phone with him I just couldn't keep it in.
No words are needed I just had to let you guys know.
Friday Cristi and I headed over to my Dad's for brunch, which turned out to be lunch. We were in a bit of a hurry and you know how two girls can be in a car for over an hour together, a bit chatty :) This is why I didn't notice the police car pass me until it was too late. 70 in a 55 and a dog on my lap. I thought for sure I was screwed. Did you know that in Oregon driving with a dog in your lap is a $260 fine? I handed over all my papers and said sorry I know I was speeding and put Peetee in Cristi's lap. Imagine my surprise when he came back and let me go with a warning. Thank you officer your kindness is much appreciated and I have learned a lesson.
I wore something bright because we were celebrating.
My Dad got the best news ever, they stuck a camera down inside him and what they thought was a tumor on his pancreas was NOTHING AT ALL! My Dad is doing great right now and I feel such relief for him. We had to have mimosas with lunch:) Cristi had a Reuben.
I had a ham and cheddar with roasted apples and chilies on it. Best sammy ever!
Chris's mom even joined us to celebrate my Dad~ aka the warrior :)
After lunch Cristi said she brought something over because she wanted us to take a picture with it, a Helga inspired shoot:) Can you guess where our inspiration came from?
That's right Cristi had the same copy of Playboy.
Peetee was embarrassed by the amount of fur on these girls.
Ash was totally into all the pussycats:)
Chris and I checked out a new coffee shop called Dapper & Wise. I hope people in the burbs can put down their Starbucks long enough to give this place a try.
My latte was smooth and rich.
Later it was time for some ramen and sushi.
and I had to show off my latest needlepoint score. I really do love her!
I also painted this frame finally.
and after seeing Vix add pom poms to everything I had to add some to this too!
I know this was a long post filled with a bunch of stuff, but come on ya know that is just what we all need to get through a Monday. I watched the Oscars last night and now I must go see 12 Years a Slave and Dallas Buyers Club. Wasn't Lupita a vision is that blue dress?
