sonp 2013...or not

sooooo summer of no pants sewing extravaganza!  ... i tripped at the finish line.  so incredibly badly.  its been over for over a week.  aaand i still havent done a 4th project.  i hemmed some dresses on friday.. and consulted with an old college friend about altering her mom's wedding dress..  and took lots of naps..  and am wearing skirts cos its just too damn hot for pants.

but sewing fail.  sigh.  marigold, i feel like ive failed you . stay tuned for more projects this summer.  promise.

hitting paydirt

weeeell maybe an exaggeration.  but the garden is growing!  amazingly enough since weve had one of the coldest springs in awhile, with interspersing of a couple 95 degree days, maybe... 6 other sunny days, and gallons of rain. 

also, if you follow me on instagram... you already saw these when i flooded my feed this morning.
5 massive lettuces and..a hole?

peanut butter pixies


growing up in the midwest.. peanut butter pixie day at lunch was the best friggin day of the week!  i googled my favorite childhood treat in the hopes there was an easy recipe at my fingertips.  weeell if i wanted to make 60 servings and could easily obtain over 3 pounds of peanut butter and a mixer that can handle it... i found my recipe.

still painting things

after some internal debate, late night pinteresting, and irresponsible finances.. i bought paint for the kitchen.  i figure i'll spend $100 now and $10k in [if i'm lucky/frugal/get a raise] 5 years... and i can test if i like colored paint!  if i dont.. ill bash it all out with a crowbar and just paint everything black and white foreeveerrr.  no really.

kinds of fuel

holy crap you guys.  i saw fuel.  back together.  for $13!!  high school dream fulfilled!  it was pretty much what i expected, and they played all the old hits ...and a new song from their soon-to-be-released album.  um... not so great, but i have high hopes for the rest of the album.

two lights. yet again.

welp i think ive now posted pictures of this beach/shoreline twice on the blog.  but its still gorgeous and i am in complete awe every time i go.  the only unfortunate part was it was a perfectly balmy 75 degrees and breezy after two freak 95 degree days... and i got so incredibly burned i'm surprised my entire back hasnt peeled off by now.  and there was pain.  so much unable-to-move-shoulders-and-upper-back pain.

the garden's a growin

when they named rainbow chard "neon lights"... they werent kidding.  bright like the 90s.  but less trashy.  my cherry tomatoes are happily flowering and i hate to say this out loud lest it hear me... but my dill isnt bolting yet!  hurray!

sonp 2013 - tight tatted teal

and no i dont mean tattooed.  tatted.  like lace.  but i think its crocheted.  but basically its a stretch knit tube dress with an "applique" purchased on etsy.  i have no idea what a venice applique is so i call it a crocheted thinger.  anyway, project 3 of the summer of no pants

the triumphant goodwill return

a shoulder bag.  cos i needed more of those.  but its pretty much in perfect condition down to its little metal feet!  i dont think its actual leather so i'll probably just clean it with lysol and febreeze

house status: 90% done

unless i happen upon a stray $10-20k... my house is just about done!  i had a housewarming party last week but i was a little tipsy and half out of my mind with terror as my boss' boss showed up.  thus, there are absolutely no pictures of the event.  it turned out to be surprisingly not awkward at all but i was giving the $.10 tour when i glanced back into the kitchen to see OH MY GOD THE VICE PRESIDENT OF MY COMPANY JUST WALKED IN.  but i can now say, i had jello shots with my boss' boss and traded stories about awkward dorm encounters.  have you?
living room with mirrors hung, wall hanging switched, and corner bar stocked
