I Want It All

I've had this dress in my closet for four years and this is only the second time I've worn it.  It's not that it gets lost in a sea of dresses (although it actually did) but it just hasn't been out for alterations.  Honestly, I don't know what I'm waiting for because I feel like it's a few tweaks away from the perfect summer dress.  There's something about vintage clothing that makes it hard for me to alter.  I feel like I'm taking away from the original design and it brings on feelings of guilt.  I've said it a million times before, I have weird emotional attachments to clothing and I guess this is a perfect example of it.

I've been dying to take some photos away from my backyard.  Unfortunately, being alone with a baby makes that nearly impossible.  I got the most beautiful Bernie Dexter dress two weeks ago and I really want to take some pictures at a lake nearby.  Not only would I have to deal with the general anxiety of people stopping and staring, but I'd have to deal with Bianca in her stroller and hoping she would either be good or fall asleep.  Maybe the stars will align and that will happen?  We will see, but most likely I'll have to sneak away on the weekend to do it.  I wish I weren't so worried about what those nosy people would think...

Well, I've officially started the hunt for a part time job.  Being a stay at home mom is wonderful, but I miss my independence.  Mostly, my financial independence.  We are doing just fine on one income so I'm looking for something to occupy my time while Kevin is at home.  I've been especially picky about a job because, for the first time ever, I get to work for fun.  My dream job would probably be a wedding dress consultant (am I the only one?) so I'm looking into something of that nature.  Basically, I don't want to work in an operating room anymore, I want to have fun where I work, and I want to shop with my own money again!  Here's to hoping I can have it all!
