Sewing Adventures

So I spent a part of my Saturday buying fabric for a sewing project and the rest making it. The project? Sweat pants for my boyfriend (who by the way has asked me why I haven't mentioned him thus far in my blogs! jaja) So, even though I've never sewn a single article of clothing in my life, and even though I'm sure I made plenty of sewing faux pas, I must say that they came out pretty good. He loved them and has asked for another pair. :) By the way, since fabric land was having a sale, I spent only 4$ on this pants, pretty sweet, considering also that I managed to find the actual pattern for the pants at Value Village a while back for maybe 3$.

All in all I'm pretty darn proud of me :). I might get motivated enough to take a picture of N in them.

Strawberry Picking


Today was a perfect day, if such things exist. My parents came up to visit me, so we decided to have brunch at one of the "local" farms. My buttermilk pancakes were AMAZING! After brunch we went strawberry picking in the farm's fields. The strawberries were absolutely beautiful. So big, sweet and juicy. We picked for about an hour and by the end we had a ridiculous amount of strawberries. No idea what I'm going to do with my share! Maybe it's because of my hard work, but I've never tasted better strawberries.

Wow

Apparently age really doesn't mean anything...that or some people make snitching out others their personal mission. So apparently I am no longer allowed to vent frustrations about work or managers without having to have a meeting with said person afterwards?? Can I say high school drama? Honestly, is it too much to ask someone to keep their mouth shut?!

Lord give me the strength to keep up with this charade...**sigh**
