Happy happy Friday everyone! I'm very excited to finally show you the mushroom print dress my mom and I made. She was very patiently trying to teach me to sew and I learned that it's hard. We did change the pattern so it wouldn't have a seam down the front so that made following the directions a little less straight forward. I picked out the pattern and fabric and cut everything out though! I got to sew some of it... Mom did most of the sewing. I'm better at wearing the clothes than making them.
Anyway, I'm in love with this print and all the retro colors in it. The yellow bow makes the dress even better! I can already imagine the many colored tights and cardigans I'll be able to wear with it when the weather cools down. It's nice light cotton though, so it's perfect for Georgia summers. This time I just threw on a pair of simple brown wedges because I didn't really need anything to compete with this awesome dress on its first day out.

This is the first post I've written start to finish on my new laptop! Huzzah for a laptop that runs at a normal speed and actually shuts down correctly! I finally got the external DVD drive I ordered so I could install my copy of Photoshop. This PC has a full HD touch display and it's beautiful. I'm pretty pumped about it.
Do you guys have any fun plans for the weekend? I'm going to see a local theatre's production of Mary Poppins on Saturday. A girl that was in musical theatre a couple years before I was is playing Mary so that's pretty exciting! Other than that I guess I'll be scoping out the job scene some more and rethinking my game plan since it seems like everything I was initially looking into in is in New York and that place is just too expensive. I'd like to be able to save money and not spend it all on a place to live, thanks. But anyway. I also have video games I bought eons ago and need to actually play. I feel guilty playing games when I don't have a full time job though. That's probably weird but it feels like I should be doing work, looking for a job, or doing blog stuff (which counts as my free time I guess). I would really like to play those games I bought though...
Ok I'm done rambling. Have a fantastic weekend! I hope it's great!
