Hey you guys. My mom and I went to Chicago and the beach this weekend for her Birthday, (Happy Birthday Mom, I love you!!) It was loads of fun! We walked all over the city…trust me, my legs are really feeling it right now….man alive I need to get in shape! Then today we went to the Indiana Dunes and just hung out building sand castles and taking photos. I realized how much I hate the sun….even with about a pound of sun block lathered on me I still felt like a potato chip burning in a deep-fat-fryer…but Hallelujah there was this one little cloud that covered the sun for about 30 seconds when I was taking photos and it felt like heaven!! Yep, I’m so moving to Seattle when I grow up! The beach was really crowded, I felt like an idiot going back and forth from my tripod…I’ve officially decided to stick with deserted fields from now on…the stares are just too much! Haha.
I didn’t have a swimsuit so I thought I’d make one. I stayed up all night trying to finish it before we left I amazingly got it done in the car. I made it out of a cotton sheet I got at Good will for 50c. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out, but I think I’ll make a new one because it has a couple of kinks on it. That’s what I get for using boxer shorts as a pattern guide. Haha. Hope you guys had a good weekend!
P.S. BUBBLE GUM ICE-CREAM!!
