Ghost Walk in Carson City

 I love ghost walks/tours. I love learning the history of the people that once inhabited the various places and what they did in their lives. Much of this has probably stemmed from when I was young, my mom loved history things. I used to pretend I lived anywhere from the 1500s-1800s. Okay, back to the story at hand. I went to Carson City, my state's capital, last weekend on a ghost walk. It was so much fun! And pretty!

This is my friend Jeremy and I, I think he even enjoyed the tour! :]
This is just a picture of me and my car...No particular reason for this one.

My Beau

 My mom recently found the pictures of what I consider the beginning of my beau and me dating. (This was in May 2009) Granted we did not start dating for another 6 or so months, but it was here that we actually spent time together in a date style instead of just a group hanging out without being on a "date". I thought I would share! He is currently serving a mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and comes home on December 9th! I cannot wait to see him again.

I know that I look rather silly, but I love the way he is looking at me so I can't help but adore this picture

Pin Curls

 I am still on the fence with pin curls. I think I prefer sponge rollers or perming rods, but pin curls are a lot more comfortable! They seem to take a really long time to dry and they have more kinks in them than when I use other forms of wet sets. I think once I find my rollers I will have to try that again to compare the two!

I had my outfit all planned until I could not find my skirt! This was the backup.

I ended up putting a ribbon in my hair because it was on my face and I hate hair being on my face!

More Dress Pictures and Patterns

I wanted to post a few more pictures of the dress that I completed. It actually did rain today, so I thought that the umbrella was appropriate! :] 
There was a GREAT sale at the fabric store on patterns, so I stocked up big time! I got seven new patterns, most of them are vintage reproduction.

A New Dress

I finished a new dress! I went to see CAKE perform last night and wanted to make a new dress to wear for it and this was the product of that. I used  McCall's 5972 to make this little number. I added sleeves to it and did not put in a lining, but other than that I just made the pattern as written.

Here I am at about 2 am with my ticket stub
