All Dressed Up and Nowhere To Go

Well, a few days ago my family dropped in on some very dear friends of ours after a long day of shopping. Then after a yummy dinner of Pizza Hut pizza, us girls decided to go see the "Dickens Village" being re-enacted at a local church. We dressed up in gorgeous hoop skirts... (I learned the art of sitting down in one of those... quite a feat, I assure you) and then we left.
Yeah... that was fun... squeeeezing into the car! :)
When we got there, we drove right through it! Didn't even bother to get out of the car! There were screaming people dodging out of the way...

Actually, no. (Do you think we would really...?)

There weren't any people dodging, because they weren't there. They'd canceled the Dickens Village that year, unbeknownst to us! Oooops!

So we came back to my friends' house. We felt rather glum.

But then we had fun taking silly pictures. :D

We're probably going to go to the Dickens Village if they do it next year. That would be fun!
Anyway.... hope you enjoyed my ramblings...


Currently I'm feeling: Amused, Mellow, and Quiet.


  1. Ramblings are fun!! And you are tall!! =)

  2. to bad, hope you still had fun!!

  3. Oh no! :O That must have been a real surprise!:) The skirts were beautiful, though! The pictures were great, too! Especially the silly ones! :) Thanks for sharing, Julia!

  4. I love those skirts Julia! I have never tried one on before, but I do have a very old skirt that comes with four petticoats ( try wearing that in the heat of summer:). I have a question, Where do you get the mood stickers at? I like them and would like to use them.
    God bless,

  5. :) I still had fun!! :) I always have fun with those friends... they're one of the nicest families I've ever met!

    Lauren Ann,
    Someone else told me where to find the pictures, here's the web address :

    (Just copy that into your browser if you want to go there)

    A caution: some of them were inappropriate. But most of them I liked.


  6. Julia, I want to thank you so much for the award. You are very sweet. I don't know when I will get to it--but I thank you all the same!

  7. Lauren Ann,

    You're welcome! :D hope you enjoy them!


    Oh you're welcome! :) I don't mind if you don't post about the award... I just wanted to make sure you knew you had it! :D I'm glad you like the award!


  8. Sounds like you had a good time! Dressing up in hoop skirts is so much fun! Ha! Yes, getting in the car is quite difficult and REALLY hard if there are a lot of people crowded into it wearing hoop skirts! I'm sorry you didn't get to go. I hope you can go next year though! *Smiles*

    Merry Christmas!
