Me-Made-May ’13 Week 4
Are we there yet?! I’m so ready to be done taking pictures of myself everyday. It’s becoming a bit of an annoyance. We’re almost there though. Only a few days left in May. Good thing too, I’ve worn almost every single me-made I have.
5/19 – Sunday, with cherries on top
Dress and Belt: Sew for Victory ’40s dress
For those who have wondered about the background in some of the photos. That whole dirt area isn’t our driveway, it’s mostly the backyard. We just haven’t planted grass yet. I know I’ve neglected to post an update on all the house and yard work we’ve done. I will do so soon, I hope.
5/20 -Polka dots on a forklift
To change it up, I took a photo on the forklift at hubby’s shop. I really do have to drive it occasionally. It can be a lot of fun! 😀
I need to get a few spring cardigans in different colors. I’m sure you’re getting tired of this one. I know I am
Shoes: black Rainbow sandals
5/21- Aww, do I have to?
As you can see from my face in this picture, I was a bit annoyed about having to take a picture.
Skirt: reconstructed striped skirt
Shirt: self-drafted top, never blogged
Shoes: Not sure because the brand is worn off (the shoes are probably at least six years old)
5/22 – Oops, almost forgot…
Sorry for the terrible light in this photo. I was out at the shop, it was the end of the day, and I realized that I still needed a picture.
Dress: Better Late Than Never Dress
Shoes: same aqua wedges that I’ve worn about ten times this month. Ha!
5/23 – Attack of the Cicadas
We are currently enduring what can only be called a cicada plague here. There are way more of them than usual, and they are flying clumsily and scaring me, everywhere I go. My face in the picture above is expressing a combination of amusement and concern about the cicadas flying nearby.
Dress: Mini Mushrooms Make Me Merry dress
5/24 – Test driving date
We went car shopping and test driving on Saturday. No, that isn’t my new car, but I can dream! 🙂
Skirt: to-be-blogged skirt, made using Megan Nielsen’s Kelly pattern
5/25- Errand day
Yesterday, we went to Costco and did our weekly home improvement store trip. It was a very exciting trip this time. Yay, insulation! Haha!
Shoes: brown Rainbow sandals
The Californian in me has been coming out, as I slipped on my flip-flops several times this week. I often wear other shoes when I go out and about, but otherwise, I’m frequently in flip-flops during the warmer months.
Just to give you a new face to look at, here’s sweet little Newton. He says, “Hi, everyone!” Oh yeah, and as you can see in the last photos, I just received my new glasses. Now, I have a pair to wear with blues, greens, and blacks and a pair to wear with all the other colors. I’ve never had two pairs of glasses at once. I’ve usually either lost or broken my old ones by now. 😛
