It's Been Awhile

I can not believe I have not blogged in almost a month. Where has this summer gone? I have been so busy with school (only 3 more days left). I have not really gone anywhere exciting lately only Berkeley and Dillon's Beach. I went camping there this weekend with my parents and my dads friend and his wife. It was so much fun, except that I got a horrible sunburn. Well here are some pictures from my camping weekend.
 This adorable pirate that guards the beach. My dad's friend said this looks like an engagement picture.
There was a large rock pile outside Dillon's Beach. If you look closely you can see a side profile.

Frustrating Sewing Day

I have only been sewing for about a year and a half now, and I love it. I am not the best and do not know many o the techniques, but that's okay. I am use to always having a sewing class so if I ever struggle I will have someone there to help me the next day. But, with no more sewing classes for me I am sort of panicking. So I have been working on this leopard top, but I made it way to short. Usually I would just add trim, but it is leopard and any trim would make it extremely tacky. So I am throwing in the towel on this one for a little while. I am sure I will come back to it soon, I just wish I had a friend, teacher or relative around me who knew how to sew still.

Downtown Napa

Yesterday afternoon I went to Napa with one of my good friends Alyssa. We went shopping in the downtown area. There is a lot of unique and well put together stores such as Wildcat Boutique and Betty's Girl. Betty's girl is amazing. It is a little vintage store that alters clothing to fit you perfectly for free. I did not get anything this time, but I will for sure be going back soon.

We also got a cupcake at Sift. I got  a pink champagne cupcake which was, raspberry cake with champagne frosting. It was the best cupcake I have ever had, but the frosting was super rich I could only eat half.

First Day of School

Today was my first day of community college. It definitely came a little to fast....only three days after graduation. I only have one class, thank goodness, and it is Cultural Anthropology. I am excited about the class, but realizing that high school was probably the easiest time of my life. Free classes, no real homework and the majority of your friends all in one place. Today I had to spend $207 on books for one class, mind you it is a six week class and one book was used. Well tomorrow should be interesting, it will be my first lecture and discussion. Well got to still read sixteen pages and take notes.

Sorry I have been gone forever, but I have been so busy getting ready for graduation along with all the parties. I walked across the stage on Friday and had Grad Night till five in the morning. At Grad Night I won a $25 gift card to Walmart and lots of nail supplies with a free manicure gift certificate. Then on Saturday I had four parties and one today. Well I better get some sleep because tomorrow is my first college class.

Not Entirely Contenet

So, I keep deleting and editing previous posts and I need to stop. It seems I can never be satisfied with the way my blog looks, it must be the perfectionist gene my Mom passed down to me. Or maybe it is looking at all the wonderfully creative talents out here. Well I promise from here on out not to delete anymore of my posts, I will continuously be changing the layout of my blog because as of now I am not satisfied with the header. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I leave you today with a photograph I took awhile back that I love.
