bits & pieces of my non-stop life

life has been moving so fast lately. i don't even know what to say about it because i rarely have time to just sit & think & when i do, all i want to do is sleep because of how tired i've been. it's like i've been running a marathon for the past month. not that i know what it's like to run a marathon or anything.

there are a lot of photos & stories i want to share with you, but at the moment i don't have the time to do them justice. as it is, i have a rare break between shifts at work & decided to take this rare opportunity to blog.

i will however, say that i went to the renegade craft fair a couple of weekends ago (the two photos above were from that day). it was awesome as always. i got a lot of inspiration for my own craft booth. the next art walk is a little more than a week away. anyways, while i was there, i decided to join the letter writers alliance. i got my very own membership card & super cute lwa patch. i want to sew a zipper pouch now so i can put the patch on it & store mobile letter writing supplies : ) anyways, i'm pretty excited about it.

other than that, i went camping with my lady friends & totally ruined my everlane tee. so sad!

i've been working at the local county fair too - which i have done every year since i started working & it has always been fun (& filled with drama). i'm pretty pleased that i won best of show for the salted caramel butter bars i made. they will probably kill you with all the butter & sugar they have, but they are so good!

i haven't been able to really see miguel lately either & i don't like it. but i have plans to visit him this weekend & he's coming to the fair tomorrow to see the diy terrarium demonstration i will be putting on! (eek!)

now i'm off to my second shift for the day!
hopefully my next update won't be so long away. until next time!

biggest little city

 my family took a trip to visit my relatives in reno last weekend. they have quite a few cats, so there was always entertainment ;) it was a nice little getaway, but it was so hot that i almost passed out when we were outside at an animal sanctuary. i had never felt that way before. it was very strange. so, we tried to stay cool with lots of cold stuff : )

 we ate brunch at my favorite restaurant there -  the old granite street eatery. i love everything about it - the penny tile, amazing food, & awesome staff. if you are ever in the area, it's a definite must!

 my sister & me : )
