Wardrobe Remix

These are way old photos, but I finally decided maybe I should start posting my Wardrobe Remix photos. I only have a few, but love the idea and want to try to keep up with the project. So, here goes.

Yes, these are from last winter, but that's how far behind I am in getting this, yet another project off the ground. It will probably be sporadic, but it's fun.

Necklace - vintage glass drop, my design

Aggrolites Pop the Trunk

The Aggrolites were in the City last night...had to go. They are an awesome Ska/Reggae band from LA. We got to see them at the Vegas scooter rally two years ago. And, I am so sleepy this morning because of staying out on a Tuesday night...not good. If you get the chance, go see them...fun people watching too. A lot of skinheads and punkers like them and they get out there and dance their asses off..so funny. But, they didn't play Pop the Trunk...bummer. Oh, and happened to meet a new knitter friend there...she was knitting in public and I caught her...awesome.

My 3 Boys!

A walk in the park...just two blocks from the house...I love our neighborhood! The boys posed for a portrait for momma...already worn out from the walk only half way around. Our park is a mile around...it's so pretty with a creek and hills. The story is that it used to be the original Golf & Country Club course in Oklahoma City in the 20's. I don't know if it's true, but it's designed as if it could be a golf course. We try to walk the boys often, but it's been in the 100's for so long, it wears us all out, so we haven't been in a while. They need some excercise, so I hope it cools off soon.

This was at the shopping ride.

NOTE: Little sugar bear was bouncing back, literally, the next morning. He is back to his ol' silly bubbly self as if nothing happened.


AmeriVespa 2006 - Denver

We just got back from AmeriVespa last weekend in Denver. We had a blast...met lots of new friends and got lots of heat. My husband did a fantastic job at planning this event...went off without a hitch. There were over 500 attending...the largest scooter event in the nation...awesome.

My scooter is featured briefly in this Denver News segment...of course you can't see me sitting on it. I have no photos of me on my bike at all from the weekend. Look for the hot pink Vespa...she's gorgeous! For more event photos, check out: Scoot.net.

I was bummed that I had no extra time to hook up with Cathi who lives there...was in the plans, but we were so overwhelmed with things I couldn't make it out to see her. Maybe next time! I got a little knitting done...working on the Baby's 1st Tattoo sweater from SnB Nation for a girlfriend's baby girl.
