urban dictionary definition:  fantastic, with a hint of crablikeness. often reflects a sarcastic edge to the fantasticality.

meet jaimee!  she blogs over at crabtastic.  mostly about her fave vintage fabrics, etsy finds, her adorable daughter ava, and her recent crafty endeavors…always with wit and sarcasm.

after her purchase in my shop and then talking through email every now and then, she invited us to her daughter’s 3rd bday party.
it was adorable to say the least…fabric flags, fun decorations, tables set up with food and yummy sangria.  the kid’s table was full of colorful plates and hats and things…and an area for crafts.  (please note the bracelet i made out of a pipe cleaner and beads.  also, WrW made me a bracelet that was a tad too big, so it ended up on my owl necklace.  oh!  and i even spiced up my sunglasses.  ha!  who knew pipe cleaners could be so fun?!)

from left to right:  ava (the birthday girl!), me, and jaimee

guess what else they had?

a spongebob squarepants jumpy!!!!!!

i have to admit, i am a big spongebob fan.  even if i didn’t have a kid, i’d still like it.  the humor is hysterical and sarcastic…genius, really.  we have the 100 episodes dvd compilation.

anyway, while the kids were beating the spongebob pinata for tootsie pops and mini boxes of dots…jaimee told me to take advantage of the jumpy.  so i did!

jaimee got in, too!  it was pretty hysterical.  actually, it wore me out.  i’m getting old.

WrW and i had a lot of fun.  jaimee and her husband are nice people…very hospitable and friendly.  hopefully our paths will cross again, soon!

as we were leaving, WrW snapped a few photos…

  1. Such a cute outfit (and crazy that you two sorta dressed similarly!! A sign of an outfit ghat really works for the event at hand!) those shoes make my knees weak!! Great find! It looks like you guys had a lot of fun!!

  2. This outfit is just heavenly:) plain and simple:)
    and the skirt is amazing:) starting with the shape and ending with the color:)


  3. I’m glad that little meet up went well! You look so lovely and cool. Hey, I have those exact shoes in my shop right now, just with red canvas instead of the cream! Crazy.
    My (grownup) friend got a bouncy castle for her birthday party last year, and man, is it tiring! I’ve never seen so many sweaty drunk fools falling all over the place!

  4. oh my gosh! i just LOVE those bouncy shots. the bouncy lived until 9:30 that night!!
    thanks so much for coming!! what a blast! love, too, those pics of you on the corner.
    you make my neighborhood look good!
    oh! and, dying over the present. just beautiful.

  5. Wow, you know I don’t ever wear long skirts. I don’t even own any. I have 2 maxi dresses that I’ve had 2-3 years and have never found an opportunity to wear (i know, ill try harder) this may be due to my 5 foot nothing height… but this skirt looks amazing on you!
    And it looks great with your hair!
    Hmmmm by the design of your site I would say rusty/burnt orange may be a favorite of yours ;)

  6. And yet again- another Amazing long skirt! You really are an enigma of a red-head; wearing all of these colors that usually scare other red-heads. Not to stereotype or pre-judge you, but I’m just really impressed! I think too, that it has something to do with you ability to look amazing in anything you wear period. Color is a non-issue.

    Loved this.
