"They're not going bad, they're going good!"

That was my response when Rich told me that he didn't want to buy a bunch of bananas so I could watch them get thisclose to oozy and rotten and then turn them into these absolutely fabulous cupcakes or finally try out this recipe for jacked-up banana bread... I still think I'm right. Mostly because I hate raw bananas but absolutely adore them in baked goods and now it seems like I will finally have time to do some baking! Hurrah!

I presented my thesis on Monday and it went quite well! Our childrenswear section is beyond-talented & I am so proud of everyone for doing such a wonderful job! And I am super-relieved to be DONE at last. :)

senior thesis collection photoshoot

Well, it's finally done... almost. Of course, there are still belt loops to be sewn and hooks & eyes to be attached but for the most part, it's done. There will be exclamation points involved once all the finishing touches have been added but for now I will just show you some photos. Rich's niece N. hammed it up for the camera yesterday on a surprisingly gorgeous sunny afternoon amidst several gloomy rainy ones. My friend Veronica [affectionately known as V-dog, and referred to as such hereafter on this blog] came along and used N.'s brother J. as a model for her adorable "Lost Boys"-inspired collection [a la Peter Pan]. We could not have gotten luckier with our beautiful weather and super cute models!

And today you get a bonus photo: N.'s little sister S. looking oh-so-adorable -- even though she's not wearing my clothes :)
