Happy Monday all.  My internets were down ALL weekend (grrrr!).  It was so hard to be unplugged, but honestly, it was so stifling h-o-t in my house, I'm not sure how much I'd have gotten accomplished anyways...

This weekend's (non-internetty) goals included:

1.  Get some much needed stitchery done.  A little preview of something new, I'm so terribly excited about this new project. : D

2.  Try to keep the kittens from suffocating in the 95+ degree weather.  It must be tough to wear a fur coat when it's so hot out.

3.  Attend a lovely outdoor wedding on Sunday.  Hubbers looks far too pleased with himself here.

And since I failed at Fashion Friday, here's a look at what I wore to the wedding.  I think it's funny to note, since I'm way short, and this dress is way short, it's entirely possible it's actually a shirt, and not a dress at all.


PS - I'm so happy to read your responses to this post.   And here's the answer to a couple of queries:

#7  I am not sure what to get yet.  I have a couple of ideas, but I'm so not going to rush into anything here.  I mean, it took me 3 years to talk myself into a navel piercing (now gone).  

#8  for my dear international readers, "guns" refers to one's arm muscles.  Typically stated while flexing and air kissing one's bicep.  I used to have decently toned arms, but it's fallen to the wayside. 

#9   I have no idea where I'm going to go yet.  Suggestions?

{ so now that we're caught up...how was your weekend? }

    Oh you look so cute and yes, your Hubbers looks very happy :)

    I usually have self enforced no comp. Sundays and I love the sense of freedom it gives me, but unfortunately the whole summer I seem to have been on the comp. way too much :(

    I love your list, I love motor bikes and got my provisional Licence but never followed thru ended up buying a jag instead :)

    Hope you are staying cool :) T.

    I love your dress (and shoes of course)! and that wedding picture is fabulous! Just catching up... I love your list! Only 3 states to go? I'm impressed! Weekends here... all wedding, all the time... not much in the way of excitement lately. Two months to go!

    a few things here:
    a- i totally can't wait to see what that new project is! i may have to purchase one ;)
    b- sam looks hilarious! he's totally big pimpin'.
    c- woah legs! i can't believe that's a shirt, but really, you're tiny and it's tiny...so,it's probably not meant to be worn sans bottoms. either way, you look smokin!

    your embroidery project is so awesome and impressive! I love it, the way you made it your own! and to be quite honest, sometime I wish my internet were down so I would be more productive!! :(
