learn to use a sewing machine
sewing machine

My husband got me a sewing machine for Christmas. I was intimidated out of getting one for a long time, but I’m so glad I got over that! It is lightyears faster than hand sewing, and I’m so excited to make some new stuff! I’m almost done with my first project- an apron :)



learn how to make batik
Batik

I dyed some batik fabric in my tenth grade art class, but don’t remember the process at all. I want to figure it out again, dye some myself, and incorporate them into some textile art.



learn to swing dance
so fun

my husband and i took a class through UT informal classes (informalclasses.org if you live in austin) to learn to dance swing for our wedding. it paid off because we had a fun, cool dance to start off our marriage, and the exercise is SO FUN!

I just went to Weeki Wachee 2 days ago while visiting my in-laws in Florida. They took me for my birthday and it was just wonderful. I had such a great time. I recommend it to anyone who’s into 50s, kitchy fun!

Host a dinner party
Cookbook

Ted from “Queer Eye” released a cookbook called “The food you want to eat : 100 smart, simple recipes” that is awesome! My husband and I used it for a party last weekend and the recipies were easy with ingredients easily procured. We love to entertain and this book took away the hard part. I highly recommend it when cooking for a group.



be a vegetarian
I love it

I just don’t like meat, so it works pretty well for me…



become a vegan
my two month experiment

I’ve been a vegetarian for years, but I was only vegan for a couple months. If you can do it successfully, more power to you. My kidneys started to fail so I went back to just being meatless.

Vegans rock!
