Last Wednesday we went to Lyons Cruise Night in old town Newhall. The car show and cruise are put on by the Fly By Knights car club. There was also a pinup contest put on by a local photographer, Ambitious Misfit Photography.
It was my actual birthday that day, so I was lucky enough to have some good friends come out and support me in the pinup contest, as it was crowd cheering based. Chris and Sandra Sprague also brought me a birthday gift- a vintage tiki pineapple tooth pick set for my bar! I love it! Big thanks to Chris and Sandra!
There were a ton of cool dogs at this car show. These huge great danes were my favorite!
I wore my favorite new outfit- the two piece 40s playsuit from Atomic Swag that I got at VLV!
We made sure to walk around and look at all the cool cars. This little pink sweetie melted my heart! It's for sale if anyone wants to buy it for me.
Then the pinup contest started. It was only 8 girls, but they were all so cute!
We had to answer a question. I don't remember what it was, but my answer was "world peace". Okay, not really, but this sounds funnier for the point of the blog. My answer was actually really good though, and didn't evolve any hippie talk.
Then they had everyone yell for us, until it was down to three, two and one. The competition was really tough, (Susie Homemaker had cookies!!) but I won! I was so excited! I couldn't believe it! Sugarballs says it is because he yelled really loud for me! I had some guys tell me that they yelled for me to because they see me around town and know that I am true-blue and wear this style every day. I appreciated that. I also had some people tell me that I look like a pro on stage now. I guess all this MCing, pinup contests, and publicity stuff is helping me be more confident. Who knows, but look out world!
There was the cutest lil' girl ever to give me a beautiful bouquet from Steve's Florist. It was bigger than she was!
Then I took a few pics with Ambitious Misfit Photography showing off my goodies: the bouquet and a marvelous sash! I also will be photographed and featured as Miss August in her 2012 calender! I can't wait to show you all when it comes out!
I also got the best birthday gift ever- one dozen cupcakes from Bake You Happy! That is the best cupcake shop in town, in my opinion! They won Cupcake Wars, and boy does it show!
I went strait home an put my flowers in water.
If you can believe it, they are even more beautiful now that the Lillys and gladiolas opened. I think I will contact them about wedding flowers.
Chris and Sandra came over to share our cupcakes and read Rockin' the Rockabilly Scene!
I ate so many cupcakes (we sampled a few flavors) that I didn't even want dinner! That was fine, because what could top a lobster lunch and all these cupcakes?
This was a pretty great birthday!
