Lots of Reasons

Hi all,
Yes. I'm still alive. Nothing tragic has happened. I've just been in a funk. Is that a good enough reason not to blog? I think so. Last week, I told you that I had a craft show on Sunday and that was my excuse for the lack of posts last week. The craft show went OK. I sold enough to cover the entrance fee plus a bit more. I had a really bad spot which I'm a little bitter about but I'm trying to get over it. You can see my set up below. Thanks to Beth and Nora for stopping by (even though Nora couldn't find me. Stupid spot).

If you are a diligent reader (I'm sure you all are), you know that I got LASIK on Friday. The surgery itself was totally freaky (I may have cried afterwards. I said I may have.) but it's been pretty awesome. I haven't been able to wear eye makeup since so I haven't been feeling like taking pictures of myself. Lame excuse I know but there it is. Monday evening I had a fun date with Megan at the Mall of America.  She had to return something at H&M and so we browsed a couple of stores and had a great time. I'm going to be taking some engagement pictures for her so we laid that out and it is going to be so fun. We are going to do a traditional set and then take some pictures at the State Fair. Can't wait for that!

I had a really bad day on Tuesday. I overslept because of a storm.  I was rushed so I forgot my eye drops at home and had to ask my dad to drive to my house, pick them up and drive them 30 mins to my work to drop them off. Love him.  Then, I looked at my bank account. Yikes.  Way less than you thought was in there is never a good feeling. Stupid student loans.  However, my bad day was made much better by the activities of the evening. I went out for Thai food with some friends and then to a movie with my friend/cousin. We saw Snow White and the Huntsman at the discount theater. Turns out it was 1/2 off Tuesday. My ticket was a whopping $2. They have servers that bring you food too. We got 2 big pops and a tub of popcorn. Turns out they were also1/2 and everything was only $6. My cousin whispered to me, "This is our new theater." I agree :) Last night, I had a lovely meeting with a salon manager who I'm in the talks with to put some of my photography up in their salon. Super cool. I hope it pans out! I also set up a account and tried to figure out my money situation. I sorted all my mail and then had a lovely evening with the book club ladies. We decided to read 50 Shade of Grey for next month and I can't wait! 

Needless to say, I've been busy and funk-y. Not to be confused with funky. I'm that all the time Also, a bad mood can usually be turned around by the guy below. 

I hope to be back with some outfits next week! My eye makeup ban is lifted tomorrow so I hope to get some outfits photographed this weekend. Tomorrow is the NE Minneapolis dog parade so I will for sure have some photos of that. Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. I forgot about the no makeup thing for a week. It's no fun! But you're almost done with that! My friend made about as much as you did and she had a slightly better spot. She was complaining that no one seems to like to buy art! Anyway, I'm glad I found you at the craft fair and definitely let me know if you're doing anymore of those!

  2. Oh, Erin, I am sorry you are in a funk! I hope things start looking up for you. Sorry I couldn't find you at the craft show. It was partly the bad spot (maybe), but mostly my wild two year old and the HEAT and this big old preggo belly. I think I was a little dizzy and delirious. I am happy your surgery went well, if not a bit freaky! Hope you are feeling better soon. xoxo.

  3. Nothing like a cute pet to put a smile on your face :) I'm sorry to hear you've been in a funk, and I definitely know the feeling. I've been in a bit of one myself. Maybe it's the time of year?

    Sucks that your booth was in a bad spot, but at least you still made more than your entrance fee! I would be proud to sell even just one thing, so you should give yourself a pat on the back :)

    Hope you have a nice weekend despite the funk. And hey, congrats on Lasik! I cry just thinking about getting surgery on my eye - but I've heard it is amazing afterward. My husband wants to get it done.
