various thoughts

By Tara Zandra | September 12, 2007

One week from tonight I’m supposed to be seeing The White Stripes- a band I adore and have wanted to see for a few years. KROQ has reported that it is now cancelled due to illness. I’m very, very sad right now.

It doesn’t help that I just finished putting Daisy’s clothes from last year up on ebay. *sigh* I love those clothes. I mean she has new ones, but still, these are some of my favorites including her Hanna Andersson dress she wore on Christmas Eve and the Gap retro dress she wore for her 2nd birthday. I feel sad for that too. There’s only been two outfits I’ve seen this year that I’ve loved as much as those two. One I bought at Gymboree, the other is from Pumpkin Patch but I haven’t purchased it yet. Of course, I’m sewing clothes too so I don’t need to buy nearly as much- I think.

Yesterday we went to Disneyland for a birthday party. I don’t usually like going places in large groups, but it was a great day. The hostess had it all under control and there was zero standing around going “Where do you want to go next? I don’t know, what do you want to do?” It was just wonderful, if a tad too hot.

Okay, that bragging I promised like 3 days ago. As I mentioned before Tabitha entered two contests at the fair- a fairy tale that had to star herself as the main character, and a photo. Last week we got a letter stating Tabitha had won the highest prize of Sweepstakes for her photo!!! We are so flipping proud of her. To win her first photo contest is amazing! We were sent free tickets so we could attend the awards ceremony on Sunday. We were planning on going that day anyway so the free tickets were just a bonus. So we got there and they did a nice little presentation and Tabitha received her Sweepstakes rosette. We then went in search of her story- First place! So we got to be even prouder :) Here’s Tabitha’s photo that she entered.


And here’s our winner

    YAY for Tabi!!!! That photo is incredible. She really has an eye for that. Wonder where she gets that ;) . And first place on the fairy tale. We’d really like to read that one of these days. Hope she’ll share.

    First - Congratulations to Tabitha…we’re proud of her here on the other side of the country as well! ; )

    Second - sorry about the concert! I’ve only recently gotten into the White Stripes, but can understand your wanting to see them! I’m going to miss the Blue October concert this Saturday that I’ve been dying to go see since it was announced months ago. Unfortunately, that’s the closest they are coming to me & it’s in DC. :::sigh:::
