Trekker

It's been hard getting around to getting a post up this week. I did plenty but there have been heat advisories all week and when it wasn't 100+ degrees it was pouring, even when it was raining it still stayed 90 or so degrees. This week I got to see a perspective presidential candidate speak, attended two killer birthday parties, and even got to spin some fire. I am quite rusty with my fire props since I haven't done any since I had my big weight loss, I did well though, I only bumped my leg once and it only left a little soot mark.

Now that our family is gone I've been rolling back into my normal life pattern again, I think I need an extra gold star for walking 3 miles a day in 95 degree heat though.

This month marks 1 year of having my current sewing machine, it had been about 3 years since I had one so I was overjoyed when I found a working 70s Kenmore on eBay for a good price. It is just like one the the ones I grew up sewing on. This dress was the first thing I sewed on it. I hadn't sewn with patterns in so long I didn't know what size I would take so this one is a size larger that I cut now, thank goodness for belts.
I noticed Fabric.com has lot of new Star Trek fabric, many of which are TNG so I may be making myself another Star Trek dress soon. 

How amazing are these Betsey Johnson heels? I thrifted them for $10, major score. I have always wanted a pair of Betseys and being glitter it only make them better. If you haven't noticed, I have a thing for glittery shoes.


A snap of Hubby juggling this weekend
 And here are a few of me spinning.

Now I have some fuel again I'll set up the tripod and get some good long exposure shots.
