Random Bits of Happy

Thrifty Alice

My Mad Hatter

*We attended a Mad Hatter Tea Party for a friend’s new place.  She decided she wanted it costumed and so I scoured our closets and came up with these two outfits.  The skirt was the only thing I purchased and I did that at a thrift store…so meet our $1.50 Mad hatter outfits!  Her tea party was perfectly cute with multiple tea choices and tea cakes.  A friend showed up with a hookah and kiwi flavored smoke filled her kitchen and wafted out the side door.

* We went to visit Terrell’s Mom and took the scenic route to get there.  We always pass by a lot that is full of old Navy planes, falling apart and crumbling.  We always make comments about stopping and I finally said, “let’s really stop!” and so he pulled in and we had an impromptu photo session at the Aviation Cemetery.  I got all ballsy and sneaked in through the locked gates for this photo.  It’s right by a police station….so it had my heart beating a little fast, because I’m silly like that and because as we were getting back into the truck a cop rolled past us real slow, so I waved friendly like and he sped up a little and let us be on our way.  🙂

The Big Pink @Jackrabbits

* We met V and C last Friday night for coffee and First Friday in Riverside.  V lets me know she’s following the owner of a club that has cool concerts and he was having an Easter Egg hunt all over Jacksonville for free tickets.  Sounded fun to me!  So we took off and in 3 short stops we had found 2 eggs….which each had 2 tickets.  So we had a concert to attend Easter night!  The band headlining was The Big Pink.  A London band that has an amazing electro-rock sound.  They put on a great show and since it was Easter there was another Easter Egg hunt in the club and we got 5 more eggs with tickets for shows all the way through the end of May.  Some really cool shows.  I can’t wait to see Sea Wolf the Album Leaf.  If you get a chance to see The Big Pink I highly suggest going…they are high energy, they do a few spectacular covers and their own songs are fantastically catchy.  I keep hearing them on Sirus XM, the college station has taken a liking to them and I keep hearing new songs by them.

Quick Mentions:
