And as of today, I will be able to put wedding dress preserver on my list of job duties. I use to preserve all the wedding dresses for my work, but I changed store locations so I haven’t worked on them in almost 2 years. The girl I trained to do them will be too busy as soon as Marcie goes on maternity leave (my amazing friend and supervisor) because she will be helping with some of the things marcie was doing. So they are moving everything out here… and by the end of the week I will be boxing dresses and teaching Dan how to seal them. Good news is I will have a lot more work to do, which means I will be busier and the day will go faster.
Last weekend went well, I found part of my Halloween costume. Bad news is that I went to Joann’s to get some stuff to alter my costume, and it took me an hour and a half just to get some fabric! it was ridiculous. I also attended my sister’s soccer game, and I think they tied. But I’m actually not sure. I never did any baking, to practice for the cookoff… But I did make a pie the other night for staudi’s birthday. I think I’m going to try another pie this weekend- an apple turtle pie, with a home made crust. you can see it here
… I’m hoping this will be my desert for the bakeoff. I’m also hoping it will look like the picture, cause seriously, that’s one stunning pie!
I feel like such a blog slacker, normally I’m a lot better at posting more regularly than this. I didn’t even do my end of summer post. 😦 But I do have some backpacking pictures from this summer & over the last few years that I would like to share, so I’ll have a post about that coming up soon. And I haven’t been writing very much because I’ve been so busy this week, but I am reading all of your blogs. I’m looking forward to more relaxing this weekend- and baking! I plan on getting my art table set up- it’s still a mess since we moved. I want to also finish the stitching on baby sam’s quilt, and maybe start working on my dress. I keep thinking that I have some other plans this weekend that I just can’t remember… I hate that feeling. I’m practically going to lock myself up in my house and try to get all my little projects done… and watch season 2 of Californication. Next weekend should be exciting: pumpkin carving, taking baby belly & family pictures for Marcie and her lovely family, and the bakeoff! it will be a busy one.
And tonight I have a store meeting… which is never fun. But Let’s hope that I won our monthly “I wow’d a customer” program, and will take home 50 dollars! or at least the second prize of 25. Keep your fingers crossed!
