young and hip

I went to my favorite quilt shop on the planet,
GRACIE LOU'S,
 today. 
 I needed to pick out the rest of the fabric to make samples for our booth at Quilt Market.
I knew that my day was going to be full of cutting and sewing so I showered,
 combed my hair,
and put on my giant terry cloth (really) sweats. 
 They are huge, shapeless, and BUTT UGLY.
  I still wore them to Gracies because I was only going to be there for a second.

But, tell me now, can you really only spend a couple of minutes in a fabric store?
Surrounded by the beauty of fabric?
The smell of freshly opened bolts of cotton loveliness?
I tell you friend, I cannot!

Anyway, I looked something like this-
only in ugly terry cloth sweats.
(I know, I need to wax my goatee again!)

Of course, I was listening in on the other customers conversations and one of them started talking about my blog, and my ruffle bag.....
What would you have done?
I stepped out from behind the Heather Bailey and said (waving my arms)
"That's me!  I'm Lola...again!"
So much for formal introductions!

I just wanted to let my new Blog friend know that I don't normally look that bad.
I usually look more like this

Only younger and hipper.
really.

quit shaking your head!  I do!!
K-bye/

I would recognize that 2nd photo anywhere!

It's the LAW that the less put-together you are, the more likely you are to run into someone you know (or someone who knows you) when you run out for a quick shopping trip.

Ha-ha! Where DO you get these pictures you post?! This has happened to me too, so now, even if I am only quickly going to the shop around the corner for bread or milk, I pay a visit to my mirror first!

OMG ! That's hysterical .... but unfortunately I can relate ... that's pretty much what I look like when I drop my kid off at school in the morning (and I'm talking about the first picture and not the second ..... oh well....)

LOL that picture is awful, and I am sure you looked very lovely. (its like when the house is a complete pigsty someone always visits but if you've spent hours tidying no one calls at all :/)
