Adventures at B-Lo

The Blythe Physical Challenge #9 was "Blythe vs Food" and was supposed to be a photo with a local 'dare eat' a la that show on the food network. A lot of the other group members sort of punked out and just went with fast food (Five Guys is delicious, but not a dare eat...)

I thought immediately of the gordo at Burrito Loco, and while I was too cheap to buy one (especially because I don't like burritos...) I took Cassie and headed down to West Chester.

It was a dual purpose mission, because I needed my B-Lo shot and I had made SAI letters for a sister that needed to get delivered. Tri-purpose if you count that my brother moved in that day as a freshmen!

After dropping off the letters at the music building (which was also the most convenient parking and not nearly as much of a zoo as the rest of campus) I set off to find my brother, Jack. We headed over to Burrito Loco, and he told me he would "freak" if I took "that doll" out of my bag. He's no fun.

My sister and friend, Kristi and her husband are much better sports. Kristi was moving her little sis who is Jack's age in that day as well, so she and her entire family met us for lunch. Kayla, like Kristi, loved Cassie at first sight, and wanted to hold her and change her eye color. :) Too bad I don't have another little sister!

After snapping a shot of Cass with Kristi's burrito, I elected to put Cassie on this giant fake cactus that is right near a big 'Burrito Loco' banner. This attracted some attention...When I got over to the "Wall of Fame" the cashier made it a point to check out Cassie. She said she wasn't sure what she was (I don't think she knows even now...haha) but overall Cass was well received in West Chester. Here is the photo-montage of my labors...

Cassie Ventures

I've been posting a decent amount about progress on Hana, and Cassie is feeling left out. She shouldn't, because I've been spending extra amounts of time on dollhouse efforts, and I joined a new flickr group. 365 Blythe is a group where you take a photo of your doll every day for a year. It has to be the same doll all year, so naturally, that is Cassie!

I also took a trip to the Poconos, and pretty much brought Cassie everywhere with me. I don't even feel that odd about it anymore. It helps that my husband gladly holds her and poses her for me, and my friends had no qualms about toting Cassie for me.

This is one of my favorites from a natural spring waterfall we visited. The water was 40 degrees F! Brrrr.

And my other favorite of Cassie roasting a marshmallow. I was so afraid the fire would singe her or a bit of ash would get her...but she is okay!

And last but not least for photo submission for the Blythe Physical Challenge #8: Blythe in Space. You know I had to go with a Star Trek theme. It sort of came together at the last minute, and THANKFULLY made it into the pool in time!

Borg Cube: We are the borg. Lower your shields, and surrender your ship. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own...

Cassie (looks at R2): You're a talk to them.

R2: Beep; Whistle.

Me: Why is R2D2 on the bridge of the Enterprise?

In other news, the final pieces of Cassie's kitchen arrived today. We also got a cute little squirrel dress for her and a pair of shoes (I tend to leave Cass barefoot for fear of losing what few she has) Other than that, tons of Rement has been pouring in, and I fear I have yet another addiction. I can't wait to get Cassie's house together so that it all has a place to go... Now if only I had a place for her house...
