Busy Time

Well I have been really busy lately perhaps you have noticed my absence but it is ok if you didn't. Work has been taking over and with the weather being nicer I have been spending less time near my computer.  On a positive note I finally started working on eating more healthy and getting more exercise and I lost 7 pounds in the last month Yay!!!!

Last week my husband I attended a friend of his.  Now I don't know if you know this (or care) but Brian Setzer has been living in Minneapolis with his Wife for the last couple of years. Well he is friends with my husbands friends and was in attendance of the Block Party.  I have been a Stray Cats fan since my teenage years so it was very exciting to actually get to be in a conversation with Brian although I was more concerned about not sounding dumb and saying something stupid like "Stray Cat Strut in my ringtone".  But I think I did ok.

Here I am at the party on my left is Steph a lovely young lady with lots of vintage style and on my right is also lovely Ashley aka Doris May Day.  You have to excuse the top I had on it lost a button. Yikes.  I was wearing my new Betty Page shorts though but its hard to see as they are black.

One of our local bands played, the Reckless Ones and they are always excellent.


  1. oooh sounds like you've been having fun! Well done on the weight loss, mine has come to a grinding halt but I'm back on track once I'm back from the Rockabilly Rave!

  2. Straight Talking Mama you inspired me I joined weight watchers. It will get going again it is so hard when your busy.

  3. Looks like you had a great time. i wanted to be there but we had a wedding. John and Martine's parties are always the greatest!

    Congrats on the weight loss, keep up the great work.

    Hope to see you around soon!

  4. Congrats on the eating habits!

    The only time I ever met a celebrity, I didn't know it and told him to f- off (he seemed like some ordinary drunk guy pestering me for a fag...). Well done making conversation with a cool musician!

  5. Wow, at a party with Brian Setzer! You lucky duck!! And Doris May Day is one of my favorite modern pin-ups, how cool!
    Looks like a very fun time!!!
