i have been a bad little blogger!
here are some photos illustrating my activities as of late ๐Ÿ™‚

[this is my 8am face!]
last weekend a few friends and i went to the last derby bout of the season. it was such an exciting match! i can’t even remember who spent fifty cents on this mustache, but we obviously had a bit too much fun with it ๐Ÿ™‚
i tweeted about missing derby try outs this week – bummer! 
we did assessments at rec league, and i think i did pretty well! i was exhausted that evening and the whole next day! it was really intense.
hopefully i will be ready and in great shape by january try outs!
it’d be an amazing start to my 28th year [gasp!]
[btw i am still working on a name – i even jotted down some suggestions-thanks!]
along with derby things this week, i also had an etsy houston meeting ๐Ÿ™‚
there are quite a few shows coming up this fall and we also discussed some exciting ideas i can’t wait to share!
this is the latest feisty item i custom made for a friend ๐Ÿ™‚
i did a lot of sewing this weekend on the road! i am quite the productive passenger!
my family and i celebrated my mother’s birthday in dallas
[hence sewing on the road!].
i had a lot of fun hanging out with my sister, who lives there.
sandy bought the most AMAZING cupcakes. i mean i’ve had some cute cupcakes, but none were as moist and HUGE as these babies.
the place is called dimples. holy yummyyums! ๐Ÿ™‚
featured: oreo, carrot cake, strawberry, wedding cake, banana pudding, and red velvet.
sandy also used some trick candles ๐Ÿ™‚
my mom was breathless and coughing by the time she finally got them all out!
and now for a super cute ending ๐Ÿ™‚
have a lovely week ๐Ÿ™‚



  1. Wow! Lots of greatness in this post! I love that multi-color headband. It's so pretty! Those cupcakes look so yummy. I went gluten free for health reasons 2 weeks ago and all I want is a big piece of cake and a frappuccino from Starbucks! Eat a cupcake for me! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I'm thinking about joining the rec derby league in Austin next May when it starts up. I'm so nervous. I don't know why I think I'm going to be able to do this. I'm the biggest wimp I know! But, I'm going to get the skates and practice and see how I feel. ๐Ÿ™‚
