Pre Dawn Vintage Surprise

Filed Under: Zannee's Tips, Local fun

This last weekend I had the pleasure of taking my daughter (the actor) to a downtown location film shoot at 5am in the morning. Yes, it was difficult to get up in the middle of the night, but the shoot was over at noon so we got to go home and take a nap. Which was good cause the entire shoot that morning had my daughter running in every scene.

… the location was also near Shareen Vintage….one of our favorite women’s Vintage dressing stores.

Grand Openings and Weekend Musings

As a frugal minded person, I am all for doing a lot of things yourself to save money. But my DIY efforts left me with a sprained hand leaving my right hand useless for a couple of days.

However, there was no way I was going to miss the “ By invitation only” Grand Opening Party at The Outlet by ELS on Saturday…. sprained hand or not!

Weekend Fix It

Filed Under:

I have a confession to make…. We live in a 1926 house that we did a bunch of expensive upgrades on when we first bought it.  But for the last 2 ½ years we’ve been living with an old, peeling, chipped, stained bath tub.  Yee gads… the horror! We originally repainted it, per someone’s suggestion…. What an epic fail!
