October brought more work on the baby room. Willow was still convinced that it was her new room. October also brought the promotion of one of my dearest friends. Janine is now a Lt Colonel in the USMC, which is a huge accomplishment. I am so so proud of her, and how she is using her career to better the … Continue Reading →


Halloween 2017

We did make it to my friend Steve’s annual Halloween party this year, even though I was very very pregnant. I didn’t have much energy for sewing, but I realized I had never really worn my Padme Episode 3 robe and outfit – which she wears when she is pregnant! I had to pin a panel in back of the … Continue Reading →


Halloween

Halloween was the same day as the Pumpkin Tea, so that was two costume changes in one day. I ended up throwing on my Pirates of the Caribbean gown, just because it didn’t require stays, and I hadn’t worn it in like 10 years. Arriving at the party – Steve’s car has an interloper in it: Koji’s costume – very … Continue Reading →

On to Day 2 of our trip. We got up, put on Halloween shirts, got a Starbucks breakfast, and headed out for a morning at Hollywood Studios. We had lunch/early dinner at Epcot, then hit Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party for the evening. I love the decor at Tower of Terror! I’m so glad the one in Florida isn’t … Continue Reading →

Halloween 2015

I wore my new A League of Their Own baseball uniform to my friend’s Halloween party this year. I made it in the spring but missed my opportunity to wear it with my friend Gloria because of some health issues during AwesomeCon. But I was able to wear it here. It was really fun to wear, actually. Comfortable and all … Continue Reading →

The second annual running of the corn maze! It was super fun except for the part where I got stung on the lip by a yellow jacket that landed on my hot cider without me realizing it. This year’s theme was the War of 1812. Alex and Holly doing American Gothic Crazy newlyweds! Group shot! You can see my lip … Continue Reading →
