07:29 am - Dolled Up

Ready to head out for the Dixie Danger Dolls Valentine's event.

Was a busy day yesteray, but a good one.

Started off with a group hike up at Monte Sano with some of the other Huntsville folks in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge. There were about 12 of us in the hikiing group yesterday, and three leaders. Going to take me a while to remember everyone's names. Assortment of younger and older folks,  so I didn't feel out of place being more mature. Do feel I'm probably the most overweight, but I can make up for it with my endurace background. Anyway, some nice folks; probably part of the training is to get us to bond--so we won't want to drop out along the way. Just a three miler, more of a meet and greet than a real hike. I hiked near the front of the group led by Aaron, who is a Sierra Club member/hiker; met Shawn and John, and Vicky who is originally from England and still has a lovely accent; had a conversation about fivefingers with another guy and his wife. Lots of couples, youngish parents, doing this challenge. I work next weekend, so will miss the group hike but may post on FB asking if anyone wants to meet for an early Sunday morning hike.

Then went to the Antiques and Collectibles show in the afternoon. Ran into Tina and Dan there! Also, saw Shirley from teh doll club, she said she thinks the meeting is the last weekend of the month, so maybe I won't have to miss it afterall!  Not a whole lot of interesting stuff at the show, but good enough for a browse, and enough jewelery vendors to keep me happy (and buying). Picked up one blue Sarah Cventry teardrop shape brooch, probably 80's vintage, and a green domed shaped brooch of 60's era. Also picked up a matching the green necklace, unfortunately without trying it on, and come to find out it fits too snug around my throat. :( Got caught up in the pretty and sparkley and was pretty dumb. Wonder if I can figure out a way to attach a back chain and increase the length an inch or two.

Dressed up and went to the Dolls' valentine's event in the evening, was there from about 6:30 to 9, so left before the bands started up and things relaly got hopping. I was pretty much socialed-out even before getting there, so didn't stay long. I just can't stand crowds; got to feeling lonely, got nervous, and ducked out. Still it was an excuse to dress up for a while, and did enjoy seeing the Dolls and helping with set up. I did feel pretty and got lots of compliments on my outfit and heartshaped purse. As you can see, I wore my Cherry Cordial victory rolls wig along with my Chocolate box outfit. Figure I can wear the bolero to work, over my black skirt and red top, on Valentine's Day; the brown dress has too much celavage (even if I don't) for work.

Got up too early this morning. So, took an early nap around 11-1. Just been putzing around before and since, doing a little bit of trash pickup in the living room. Not really feeling motivated to craft today, but this wil make it easier for me to do so later on.
