Lodi Street Faire

Yesterday was the Lodi Street Faire and I set up a booth for my boutique, Daisy Rae. The street faire is about 15 blocks of vendors. The event lasts from 8am-4pm and we (the hubby & I) had to get there at 5:30am to set up. It was a great event and lots of people came downtown to shop the vendor booths. It was super windy, though. I had my tent all set up with the sides on and a cute little dressing room but the wind forced me to take that stuff down. But other than the wind, the weather was great and we had a fun time! 🙂
I’m still a little sleepy from yesterday so if some the spelling and grammar is wrong, that is why. Or it could be because I’m not the best speller to begin with… math is more my thing.

Grocery Shopping

What do you wear when you go grocery shopping? Me, I wear 5in. heels. But apparently not everybody does and apparently people think it’s weird if you do.

I was walking down the pasta aisle, looking at my grocery list, minding my own business when a lady stopped and asked me why I was wearing heels at the grocery store. She said my feet must be in so much pain. I think she thought I was crazy. I then explained to her my feet problems and told her that heels are actually the most comfortable shoes for my feet. I think she still thought I was a little bit crazy (I guess most women don’t consider heels to be their comfy shoes) but she also looked relieved that I really wasn’t torturing my feet by unnecessarily wearing heel to the grocery store. I think she was just concerned for my well being.

Studs = Tough

For some reason, I feel really tough in this outfit. Maybe it’s the studs on the tank but I totally feel like “you don’t want to mess with me because I’m so tough and scary”. I mean, didn’t you think “That girl is DANGEROUS” when you saw these pictures? Don’t lie, I know you did.

I think I’ve been watching too much Nikita. I really wish I could kick some butt like her, all Jason Bourne style. And she does it so fashionably too. She’s in her pretty heels and most would think she is totally harmless. But then she becomes like a secret agent fighting ninja. I plan on being a ninja one day. I also plan on being a super good dancer like the professionals on Dancing With The Stars. I’ll happen…just you wait and see.

My beautiful cousin, Rachel, is getting married in September and on Saturday we went bridesmaid dress shopping. After I tried on and ordered my dress, we went to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory and then went shopping at The Fountains. It was such a nice way to spend the day.

I am so excited for wedding season! We have my sister, three cousins, and a family friend are all getting married this year! The wedding festivities begin this month with one of the two bachelorette parties I’ve planned for my sister. Her first party is a trip to Catalina Island with her bridesmaids. We are going to have so much fun!
