Look at me being all daring!

First off.
1. I don't wear sleeveless. Ever. If you seen me sleeveless it was only because I thought it worked for the photo and PROMPTLY covered up.
2. I don't do maxi dresses. (I'm 5'3"!)
3. I don't like to draw a lot of attention.
4. I don't show my back.

As you can see I blew all that out of the water today. A dear dear friend Emily got me this vintage Hawaiian dress. Her best guess from the metal zipper and tags is that it might be from the 60's. I LOVE when you see 1950-60's ladies at luaus with bouffants and floor length Hawaiian gowns. I actually have three of them. two that are a bit snug in the ladies and this one which is a bit big under the arms but is much more wearable. I felt fun and funky but wicked insecure about my arms. I actually deleted a bunch of photos because I hated my arms it. All the full on back photos were deleted too because my arms were just terrible in them. Even Dave said it wasn't too flattering in them. I don't see me going out and buying any maxi dresses but I do love these vintage Hawaiian ones. (One of them has a train!)

It has pockets too!



yeah so umm....I have a permanent farmers tan. I have so much sun damage freckles on my arms that that isn't a tan half way down. That is where all my freckles start!

I wore cute earrings too.



My toes matched but it was a coincidence. (They are hot coral with gold leopard spots.)



My mom the smartass she is emailed me this this morning saying she didn't know what happened I was born with a tan.

My mom emailed this to me this morning

We went out for Thai food, to the Chestnut Hill Mall and I got some amphibious makeup at MAC. Dave got a chair massage and a Soda Machine.



Dave's new toy.

Any plans for the weekend? 
We both had the day off because we worked longer days this week. (I am allowed to do it 4 times in the summer!) Dave's office does it for 3 months in the summer. My inlaws are coming tomorrow to go celebrate Dave's birthday. I hear she is bringing cake!

Past Helen cakes.
cookie monster.
birthday cake and petit fours
(note the petit fours right in front of me! My favorite food on entire planet!)

I want one of those soda machines. As much soda as we drink, I think it would be fun! :)

Let us all know how you like it!

I love the dress, so bold and pretty. I'm going to see Crowded House tomorrow at The House of Blues. "Happy birthday" to Dave. Have a good weekend. : )

Awesome dress! I am in complete envy that you will get to eat one of those amazing looking cakes! Happy birthday to Dave. Hope you guys have a great weekend.

I think you look amazing! That dress is so colorful and fun.

This weekend will be pretty low-key for me, since I am just getting over a bout of the stomach flu. I had to stay home from work yesterday, it was miserable. So I will probably clean the apartment, catch up on some TV (Bones and Leverage) and maybe take a trip to IKEA for some new bedding. Yeah, exciting.

Those cakes look amazing and I know one for Dave will be GF. Save me a piece. ;-)

All those cakes are gluten free. Dave's family is all celiac.
