Amazingly, I found some time to sit down and make a scrappy page…and I can even give credit to everyone who made what I used to make it!…lol well, that’s because I only used one kit.

So obviously my sister is getting married…and soon, too! I will be writing about the bridal shower and sweatshops leading up to that very soon…and yeah, that is her ring…isn’t it pretty? She really likes the vintage look and her fiancé, Andy, had it made so it’s also one of a kind! It really suits her…he did done good! I don’t know what kind of wedding band she will have to go with it. I’ll have to ask her!
Today is the day of the annual Woodward Dream Cruise here in Michigan. I didn’t go at all this year because it was so.damn.hot. today and yesterday! It was like 90 degrees with humidity…no thank you. I’m kind of over it anyways. I mean, I grew up around old cars because my dad’s always had one (or two!) and I’ve been to a number of car shows and I don’t mind walk around looking at cars, but I don’t like the heat because I’m a sweaty beast and there are millions of people there! Millions…I kid you not!
Usually the hubbs and I will go to our church on Friday night. They have Chicken Shack there selling chicken dinners and music in a huge tent. The music is usually the Polish Muslims, which are a cool Weird Al type of band. Then when we’re done eating dinner and listening to the music a bit, we go sit out close to the road to inhale exhaust fumes and watch the old cars “cruise” down Woodward. Basically it’s 1 or 2 old cars and then regular cars who either don’t pay attention to what weekend it is and are now stuck driving on Woodward, or they want to be in the mess of it all. And…it’s basically a parking lot or a lot of drive 20 ft and then stop for a light.
Here are some pictures from 2007…I don’t remember if we went last year, maybe we didn’t…and since I didn’t go this year, I don’t have any from 09! But it’s pretty much the same!
Woodward…bumper to bumper…smell that exhaust!
STILL bumper to bumper after dark!
It’s an ok time. A lot of people go and enjoy it. If it wasn’t so blazing hot yesterday and today, I probably would have went…but it WAS so stinkin hot. My husband didn’t even try to pop down there today, which is probably would have done if it wasn’t so dern hot.
And yes, I am whining about the heat! I cannot stand it!! I am SOOOO ready for fall. Ahhh wonderful Autumn…please hurry your seasonal butt up and get here already!
How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop??
