Marine Corps! (and oh yeah shutdown…)

DC is all abuzz! It’s officially October which can mean only one thing in DC: Marine Corps Marathon month!

Time to Get Dressed

Time to Get Dressed

My Cheshire Cat has gone through a couple of iterations and I mentioned to my mom that I wasn’t really all that pleased with the results-namely that the no-sew tutu is just not my thing and I had burned my fingers trying to hot glue purple tulle strips onto a pink shirt. #fail.

Plus, without easy access to either my sewing machine or a Joann’s, it’s not as easy to … Continue reading

Entering the Twilight Zone

Less than 60 days from now I head down to Florida to do the Tower of Terror 10 miler and enter the Twilight Zone! Let’s just hope I don’t come out with a pig face. Even more exciting, the trip is officially paid in full because nothing kills the pixie dust buzz quite like having … Continue reading
