Head Over Wheels

Hiatus might be the wrong word to use for the super long break I've had from blogging, but I'm back and head over wheels in love!! With roller derby that is.

I recently joined the newly formed leauge in my town (The McLean County Missfits)I finally decided on the derby name "9 Milly" after countless weeks of diliberating and am so excited/borderlined obbessed it's not even funny. I think if I could figure out how to sew in my skates I would, but in the mean time I'll settle for screen printing in them.

It's a wonderful release and a killer workout, but has done nothing to curb my sock obbession. Of course I have used derby as a valid excuse to hit up my most fav sock site Sock Dreams. I adore these nerd socks and of course the crafty socks are already tucked in my sock drawer. And by "tucked" I mean crammed, as the afore mentioned sock obbession is visablily taking it's toll. They seem to be having a sale over at SD soooo many cute socks and only these 2 feet. Sigh.

Speaking of sales, this week most of the limited edtion clothes in the shop will be on sale for $18 or $20 to make room for new fall designs.

Happy Monday all!

So jealous you're doing roller derby, I've always wanted to! Bummer I'm not in McLean Co. anymore! Ok, I absolutely love that spool shirt, I would totally snap it up but I'm unfortunately on a budget right now! Bummer!! Glad to see your back to blogging, my dear!

I'd love to join the roller derby. I think it would help me get a bit more commanding in my life. You go, girl! And yes, I'd totally do everything in skates. Or at least those socks.

Some good friends of mine do roller derby in the UK. One is part of the Wakey Wheeled Cats in Wakefield and the other is a part of the the Hellfire Harlots in Nottingham. If I was not so prone to falling over everything, including my own feet, I'd love to do this!
