On the 27th of March I turned 27 years old. I was so excited about this birthday, because (its seems to be a little known fact) it was my golden birthday! So in honor of this, and because I am obsessed with Ru Paul's Drag Race, I decided to have a Drag Queen Party (it was 2 weeks early because M would be out of town just before and after my birthday). Oh my gosh. It was so much fun, and my loving friends and as you can see in the picture below, very loving M dressed in drag to celebrate me. It was such a fun party and I wish I could have a golden birthday again.
Doesn't M look lovely in that dress? I think so.
The day after I celebrated my birthday was St. Patty's, and M and my friend AC was in town. I made them all go out in the yard with me to look for 4 leaf clovers! I found two, so I am pretty sure that means I have all the luck in the world.
I am so in love with blood oranges, and when I found them in the local grocery, I bought so many, and they have been so so delicious.
On the day of my birthday my sweet hunnies took a picture with me so that we could have pictures of the wonderful memories that we have shared.
I rescued my friend mr. inch worm from the perils of the sun on a hot car...
...and deposited him into the shade of a lovely tree.
Since M would have to work Tuesday night and we couldn't have the whole day together, we decided to go to the dragon park to have a picnic and just spend some quality, peaceful, time together.
For our picnic we went to The Dog of Nashville. I got the Fiery Redneck with fries and M had the Barnyard with onion rings. It was such a good lunch, and when we were finished we watched the planes in the sky...
(no planes are pictured here ha!)
My very favorite person and best friend in the whole world.
In honor of my golden birthday, I bought these cute little rings with my initials from UO as a little reminder of this special birthday.
In the evening I spent some time with my family, at Watanabe, where one of them works. In honor of my birthday a special drink was concocted and served in a grapefruit!! How awesome!
And now for my exciting news!!
I have been sewing a lot lately, on my trusty Singer.
The sewing however is not the news! What I have been making lately is the news. The shirt pictures below is a chiffon top with lace insets into the racer back. The front (which I didn't have a good shot of) is pleated just below the shoulders and with a square neck, that also opens up into a V neck.
So why am I telling your all of this you are wondering?!
Well because I am about to start selling my wares!! I am going to be putting bow-ties and...
maxi skirts up soon in my etsy shop. The skirts above and below are ones that I whipped together for myself. So keep a look out for a post with a link to my etsy (which I have had since 2007, but never put anything in), just in case you are in need of some cute skirts or bow-ties for your favorite man. There's going to be some fun stuff going on with the bow-ties, so keep an eye out!
I also made the dress below, I'm not quite finished with it, but it is completely designed from my brain, with no patterns or anything. Just my awesome dress form to help me go along.
So that is what has been going on in the B&McGee household lately. Mad schedules, sewing, lots of hot dogs, and the happiest of birthdays.
Hope all of this was worth the wait, as well as the length of the post! Whew!
Other exciting news, M and I are starting to work on a t-shirt line under the design name B&McGee and we will be posting up some designs on my etsy, various facebooks, and on this blog in the near future! So keep and eye out.
I included the picture below because I think its a great photo, but it doesn't look anything like me so it kind of weirds me out and I just wanted to share! What do you think?!
P.P.P.S I promise that really soon I will change the banner at the top of my page...since it's not just a recipe blog anymore.
