Family Fest and Frida Fun
I recently spotted a super cute top at a women's clothing store that was a tad reminiscent of my Frida sewing pattern. That got my wheels spinning, of course. So on Saturday night I happened to mention on Twitter that I might tackle grading my Frida pattern up for women's sizes. This is how the conversation played out (notice how it took a PG13 turn once the guys got involved! LOL!)
@pattyyoung: So, if I make Frida in big sizes what should I call it? "Frida Grande"?... LMAO!
@bluenickel5: don't think grande will work....vente?
@Fabritopia: Joey says you should call it "Frida Lard"!! I'm embarrassed.
@pattyyoung: ahahaahaahah... I'm about to pee over here!
@jjyoung11: "Frida Gigante"?
@bluenickel5: nope that won't sell either....that only sells condoms....oops...did I just say that??
@jjyoung11: It could work. "Bias trimmed for her pleasure."
@bluenickel5: ... the bias comment .....hilarious!
@Fabritopia: "Mucho Frida"?
@pattyyoung: LOVE IT! I almost just wrote "Fridota" but you 1-upped me! ;)
@pattyyoung: Time for another contest? Sure they'll come up w/ something better than Frida Grande, Frida Gigante, Frida Lard, Fridatotota or Mucho Frida.
@Fabritopia: I got it! "Frida Gordita"!!!!
@pattyyoung YESSSSSSSSS! You nailed it!!!!! That's it, no need for a contest anymore!
@jjyoung11 Well played.
@thequiltshoppe: How about "Momma Frida" or "Mama Mia Frida"
@pattyyoung: hahaha... LOVE THEM!
@yummygoods: Lady Frida
@pattyyoung: awww... that's actually not bad, Melissa. (most of the others have been just comical!) :)
@bluenickel5: Now that is elegant....bravo..MA!
I think I went to bed soon after this so the game sort of trailed off, but it made for quite an entertaining Saturday night on the 'puter. ;)
On Sunday we decided to checkout a local Family Fest. I heard on the radio that Ralph's World was going to perform so I thought that would be fun for the girls. After the previous night's Frida conversation, I couldn't help myself and dressed Sydney in a Frida, just for fun. As we were paying for our admission tickets, the lady at the counter spotted Sydney and the conversation went something like this:
Lady at counter: "That is an adorable dress you're wearing!"
Sydney: "Thanks. My mom made it"
Lady at counter: "WOW! Your mom made that? That is truly special!"
Sydney: "I know!"
Jon and I just looked at each other and had a little private chuckle (Sydney is the epitome of a walking advertisement). Here she is with Ralph:
Ralph's World on stage:
In between sets, the girls had their faces painted:
Bound their own books:
Got themselves some funky balloon creations:
And even met this silly guy:
Then towards the end of the show, they got to go up on stage and be part of the band...
All in all it was a fun weekend for all!
Don't forget the contest is still going! Thank you all for the super sweet comments you've been leaving! I have laughed at your jokes, gotten a tad red-faced reading your compliments and even gotten a bit teary-eyed a couple of times. Once we hit 300 comments I announced on Twitter that I added A 3RD PRIZE! A 3rd lucky winner will walk away with 2 of my MODKID patterns... WOOOHOO! I'll draw the winners end of day on Tuesday and announce them soon after... good luck, everyone!
