What early 90′s children’s game show did that quote come from?! Double Dare! The Nickeloden all time favorite Double Dare. I’ve been watching a lot of this classic on The N channel at 12am thanks to Teen Nick 90′s Are All That block of shows. It’s nostalgia city, and as of late they’ve been playing Figure it Out, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Doug, All That… so many of the classics. However, I’m still waiting for Nice Arcade, Roundhouse, What Would You Do and Are You Afraid of the Dark? among others! Since Bo is a wee bit older than me, and was raised very Pentecostal and wasn’t allowed to watch television in the early 90s, he had no clue of any of the greatness of 1990s TV. His first homework assignment? RetroJunk.com.
Well, when I’m not cathing up on 90′s TV, I’ve still been sewing; lightly sewing, let’s not get crazy. I’m no professional, but I did get to work on this very long (all the way down to my toes long) 80′s/90s dress that was pretty boring in its original form. Bo was not a fan when I pulled it out of the dresses section at Goodwill, probably due to a flashback back to his church days and seeing girls running around in very long dresses and very long hair. But when do I ever listen to him? So, I brought it home, trimmed it up with a cut and a snip and hemmed it. And now? It’s a fun little dress. The back is really great, with a zig zag design. I think it will be just great with some tights in the winter.
This weekend hasn’t been all 90′s TV and sewing. My parents got back from Las Vegas and brought us sweet treats and presents. It is an understatement that they are incredibly giving and always so good to us. We are lucky to have them in our life.
Other than that, it’s summer in Texas and it’s really horribly hot and gross, so we have combated the heat with many trips to our favorite sno-cone stand, sharing ice cream cones, complete with sprinkles I bring from home! Yes, I’m that girl who has sprinkles in her purse. And it wouldn’t be summer without taking Emory to In-N-Out burger, because he loves the fries. We allow this as he plays enough ball to burn more calories than we do. And what’s summer really done for us? Well, we launched Lost In Drawers Vintage, and there is no better clue for the summertime blues than wrapping up many dresses, and sending them to their new lovely homes.
Now, can autumn hurry up, please? No seriously please hurry.
