It's the Best State Fair in the State!

Went to the State Fair with Joey and Albert. It was my third time going, but a first for both Joey and Albert. I like looking at all the exhibits they have, but my main goal was to pig out on junk food! Sadly, I only partook in a super corn dog and some deep fried veggies, but still awesome nonetheless. (The super corn dog is two hot dogs on a stick dipped in batter.)

This year they had an exhibit on animation with lots of cool stuff from Disney, Pixar, Warner Bros. and others. If I had the money, I would have purchased some wall art.

Wile E. Coyote...suuuuper genius!

I regret not bringing my parasol with me. So hot!

I Want New Shoes

Something classic looking, non-smelly, and flat! As much as I like the look of heels, I am all about flats on a day-to-day basis.

Workin' Myself Ragged

I've been dealing with some urgent issues at work lately - water quality failures and difficult staff. It sucks when you think you're doing a pretty good job and then someone comes along and insinuates that you didn't do right by them, which is now the reason they're in trouble. It makes me second guess myself and then I stew over whether I adequately defended myself or acted like a pushover. I refuse to let other people treat me like I don't know anything. But, of course, I don't want to be a bitch about it either. Blah.

Anyways, I have been drafting up patterns for a skirt with pockets and a tank top with a yoke. Haven't actually tested the patterns out yet, but I will show you when I do.

This and this is the basis for my drafted skirt and tank top pattern, respectively.

And to end on a positive note:
