CamerShy ~ Week 24

5:00 ~ Time to kick back and relax.  Time to sit on the patio, kick up my feet, and chill. 
 Peace, Quiet, and ....... nothing else!
  Life is good.
Actually....Life is GREAT!
 
P.S.  I'm starting to think about this trip to Dublin the family has planned.  Any itinerary suggestions??

I'm joining Tamar's The Good. The Random. The Fun. on this rainy Monday morning.

Signs of Summer surround me....finally!  I could do without the dreaded humidity, but I am enjoying the sunshine. On my local outings this week, I've discovered...

The Good
 
The Random
The surest sign of Summer!  Beer assortment which includes my Summertime favorite: Hell or High Watermelon.  This was discovered on an "outing" to my basement. My hubby DOES enjoy beer shopping!
 
The Fun

Have a Good, Random, Fun week!!

Better than Jammies!

In case you don't know me, I am tall. I'm not REALLY tall...I mean...I have several friends who are taller than me.  5 '8 1/2" in stocking feet.  Pants shopping is a nightmare because, well....according to my husband and offspring...I have freakishly long arms and legs.  Why can men go into a store, choose their waist and inseam and walk out with a pair of pants that fit?  I have many pants that I pretend were meant to be "ankle length"...a more fashionable term than the "floods" from my younger years.

Along comes the maxi skirt trend.  I found one that had enough yardage and  have since been searching every store I enter desperate to find another that is long enough.  What could possible be more comfortable?  Seriously....they're better than pajamas, and much more attractive!

What's a girl to do?!  Google to the rescue!  I googled "easy maxi skirt" and I was introduced to Big Boo Little Boo.  She has a tutorial that is so easy that even a mediocre seamstress like I can follow.  Check out her Easiest Jersey Maxi Skirt tutorial and give it a go!
(Pardon the poor quality photo, but I was in a hurry to go out and buy more fabric)
