I am back from my epic road trip. 3,564 miles. 7 states. 16 days.
I am exhausted.
And now that I'm back, I'm tackling the equally epic load of laundry, complete and total grocery shopping, and trying to play catch up with homeschooling. Hurrah. The epic road trip did involve some fabric, so hopefully I'll be posting about that soon. There was no sewing...so that probably doesn't need a post of its own.
BUT! I promised a post about meeting up with Samantha of Diary of Madfabriholic, and friends, I am all about delivering. To be honest, I was all sorts of nervous before our meetup. I'd never ever ever met
anyone I knew solely from the internet. More importantly, what if my
introverted self refused to make conversation and we sat in a deadly
lull for the entire time? What if Fancy Tiger wasn't my cup of tea AT ALL?
Of course, that didn't happen. How could it? Samantha is totally awesome, Fancy Tiger is also awesome, and the evening was super fun.
There was a froo-froo cocktail! I think it was called a cha cha? Or a chi chi? All I know is that it was delicious. There were also tacos because it was Taco Tuesday. (And not the deadly kind of Taco Tuesday, heeheehee.) I had a fish taco and a Spam taco. Let me be clear--normally, I would run from Spam like no girl's business, but in taco form? I had to see it to believe it. (And it was super tasty.)
Of course, it was a tiki bar, which made it more funsies.
Fancy Tiger was wooooooonderful, and the girl who cut my fabric didn't even think I was crazy for squeeing every thirty seconds over something new.
And the evening ended with Voodoo Doughnuts because OMG, it had to. And for a girl who is kinda obsessed with doughnuts--I had a doughnut wedding cake in lieu of the traditional kind--I was super happy.
More details on the trip later, including what I got at Fancy Tiger! Until then, I hope y'all are doing AWESOME, and WAIT until you see the yummy fabric I picked up. See that voile with the birds above? Start thinking of delicious dress ideas because I bought enough yardage for a dress, and I need me some ideas. It must be epic. And use less than three yards. And not be super hard. And possibly look good with boots. Those are the only requirements.
