Sob, Sick and A Sock Monkey

Yesterday was brought t you by the letter S.

The Atlas and I were supposed to be going to a 30th birthday with an S theme. I was going as Sandra Dee (1950s actress and model made infamous by a song in Grease).

The Atlas was going as a sock monkey.

Until Flip got sick….. throwing up sick. Friday night was very long and sleepless.


So as it was one of our guy friends I told The Atlas he should go. (I know I am SO mature!)

Multiple sobs, Sick and The Ugliest Sock Monkey you ever did see.

I’ll show you my costume for ‘make my week’ on Monday.

Meantime I decided that I would have some fun dressing for church this morning.

Here I am in my newest wardrobe addition my AWESOME skirt from sailorspy, a t-shirt from an op-shop $1, Cardi hand-me-down from my cousin, sockettes bought in Turkey, shoes £8 bought in the UK, brooch re-gift from my sister (I gave it to her and she gave it back!). I like my outfit – I feel I am channelling a 50s silhouette with a slighty 80s vibe.

Some one else is much improved today too – Hooray!
