Victoria Day Party

Caroline held a Victoria Day party in May at her lovely Capitol Hill house. I was a bit late to it and as always I haven’t had sewing time and my Victorian wardrobe is not as deep as my 18th century one is. But I threw on my plaid 1840s and a tiara. I didn’t have time for fancy hair … Continue Reading →


Fort Fred 2018

We actually made it to Fort Fred this year and it was neither too hot (last year) nor too cold. Nor was I pregnant! So I wore a costume – an older one, that I hadn’t worn in ages – and I don’t think my stays were quite tight enough so I had gapping issues, but, well, I got dressed … Continue Reading →


Disney, April 2018 – Monday – Animal Kingdom

Monday was our last full day at Disney. (We had an early flight out Tuesday morning.) We spent it at Animal Kingdom – largely because that was the day I was able to score Fast Passes for the new Flight of Passage ride. I was curious to see all the Avatar stuff. I had been a little skeptical – I … Continue Reading →


Disney, April 2018 – Sunday – Epcot

Sunday morning was the Star Wars Half. Betsy, who is an amazing artist made a bunch of signs, which I eagerly agreed to use, since I had none. I did not end up catching Betsy, unfortunately. But I did see Doug, and Betsy’s race signs went over super well because they are awesome. I wish I was that talented. My … Continue Reading →


Disney, April 2018 – Saturday – Magic Kingdom

Saturday of our Disney trip was a Magic Kingdom day. We started out with a photoshoot. I got this Snow White sweater dress on sale at baby Gap (thanks Conley!) when I was pregnant and I was so so excited for her to wear it and she looked awesome. Baby pics this way. We bought Elena a teddy bear and … Continue Reading →


Disney, April 2018 – Friday – Epcot

This post is gonna have a ton of baby pictures AND a ton of Disney pictures, including food. So, fair warning. I’m almost glad it’s taken me so long to blog this because omg, my daughter is 10 months old now and is enormous, and no one told me how badly I would miss her being a little squishy. This … Continue Reading →


Star Wars Costumes at AwesomeCon

They had a nice display of Star Wars costumes from The Last Jedi at AwesomeCon. Here you go! I took a ton of Rey, trying to catch seams and such. Also: We took this one for Jen! Luke:


AwesomeCon 2018

AwesomeCon was in late March this year. I decided to just do one day, and meet Gloria for Outlander costuming, and check out the Artist Alley since I had a couple of friends with tables there. We decided not to bring Elena since it was the tail end of flu season, which wasn’t great this year. The most surreal part … Continue Reading →


Cherry Blossom Weekend

We got the gang back together this past spring for the Cherry Blossom 10 miler. It was a nice chance to see old race friends we don’t get to see that often, and for them to meet Elena. Janine also threw Ron a surprise birthday party, which was pulled off perfectly! We started off the weekend by Conley, Doug, and … Continue Reading →


Elena’s First Snow

I haven’t done much baby posting for a bunch of reasons, but I had to post a couple of these because they crack me up. We had a late snow day in March, so we bundled Elena up and took her out into her first real snow, and I was super excited for her to experience it. She was not … Continue Reading →


Francaise Dinner 2018

Ah yes. Francaise Dinner 2018. Also coincident with #babyplague2018. This year, the Franchise dinner was hosted by Jessica, and was back at Gadsbys Tavern in Alexandria. I had talked my friend Get into coming down and staying with us, seeing the baby, and coming to the dinner. We started off the weekend with a nice dinner out – unfortunately late … Continue Reading →

Here is fence and the alleyway outside. The gate again: Inside the ground floor: 2nd floor: The 2nd floor had incredible murals: 3rd floor: I’m not sure if this … Continue Reading →
