Me Made Item(s): Red Charlotte Skirt & Tardis-colored Miette Cardigan
This sexy beast (the skirt, not the person) was the product of my first online sewing activity, (Charlotte Skirt Sewalong), and the sweater was my very first knit cardigan (or any cardigan, really…not like I have tons of them, guys).
I got semi-dressed up today, because my boss took me out to lunch to celebrate my graduation (excluding shoes–I changed into these flats since we walked to the restaurant). It was fun, but I guess they had to chase down my chicken, kill and pluck it, and then finally get around to cooking it. IT TOOK FOREVER is what I’m tryin’ to get across, here, peoples. The food was magnificently delicious, though.
Thursday, May 9th:
Me Made Item(s): PPP top w/Black pants
I didn’t take any pictures because it was boring, and EXACTLY THE SAME as my 5/1 outfit. EXACTLY the same. Pretty sure I even had the same socks on (laundered in between; I’m not a total skeaze, folks).
Friday, May 10th:
Me Made Item(s): Grownup Cambie
Okay, so technically, you won’t see any pictures of my dress, here. The main thing I was excited about for graduation was the unveiling of my Graduation Dress, and I didn’t get any pictures of it. =/ OHWELL, too busy living life, right?
Obviously, by “living life”, I mean “hanging out with family before graduation”.
You know what you WILL see, though?
Lots of pictures of dogs.
These phenomenally blurry pictures brought to you by The Boy.
He’s sorry, but it’s really the camera’s fault. I think the pictures quite nicely sum up the whole graduation experience. The interesting bits flew by and were blurry, and then there was a whole lotta boring crap for the rest. I distinctly remember the
iron ADAMANTIUM grip of the school president, though, holding me in place and snarling “look at the cameraman, LOOK AT THE CAMERAMAN” through an extraordinarily fake smile when I tried to take my “degree” from her talons.
I was most proud of the fact that I didn’t trip EVEN ONCE, you guys. NOT ONCE.
Saturday, May 11th:
Me Made Item(s): Nothin’ me-made. We spent the day with my mom and Bob, walking around Galveston like doofy-ass tourists. Or doofy ass-tourists. Whichever. I did have to take a picture of a wall at one point, though.
It was necessary.
Sunday, May 12th:
Me Made Item(s): PPP top w/Jeans (Mother’s Day)
Hey look! Someone seriously needs to make some more tops!
Monday, May 13th:
Me Made Item(s): Nothing me-made today. SUPER lazy day.
Tuesday, May 14th:
These are my flats, and my wedges. The flats are actually a camouflage print, but yeah, really falling apart.
ALL GREEN ALL THE TIME

My raptor face is probably my favorite picture of this little “shoot”, and this is an example of a real Kristi-smile.
And this is a smile that I did just for my mom, since I know she’ll nag me about how I only ever make goofy faces. (Hi mom! Got it from yooooou!)
LUNCH HOUR! I get made up, take my pictures, and then knit and listen to audiobooks.
