Self-Stitched-September: Days 4 and 6

7 Sep

It has been a rainy and yucky first week of September here in Maryland.  I have actually been keeping up with my Self-Stitched-Sept duties but I haven’t taken pictures.

Over Labor Day weekend I really really wanted to go to the beach. Really really badly.  But for some reason unknown to me, Edwin refused to go.  We had it out and I threw a fit [out of my character, but completely necessary sometimes] so we ended up going to the Catoctin Mountain Park which is about an hour away from our house.  Here is a picture of the lake:

I couldn’t believe how uncrowded it was- or how low the lake was.  It was perfect for Andres and for splashing around.  We spent the night at the Cozy Inn nearby.  The whole town is close to Camp David and reporters stay at the Inn a lot.  Each room is decorated in a different Presidential theme.  Last year we were in the Eisenhower room.  Kitschy: yes.

This is what I wore Day Four:

Top: Anthropologie    Skirt: Simplicity 2698 made from Chambray    Toddler: For Sale

And this is what I wore to work today on Day Six:

Highly-Flammable Top: Vogue 1170   Skirt: Also Vogue 1170  Shoes:BC   Belt: Zaaa Goodwill 

Crazed look on face:  Combination of working with half-naked women with body issues all day, rainy rush hour traffic, and trying not to listen to the telenovela thats blaring on stage left.  Let’s note that this was the only usable picture because Edwin refused to get off the sofa to snap some photos.
