Wordy Wednesday: Pier 23 Cafe and Sally Rand

My Mom and I went to the Pier 23 Cafe for lunch on a recent trip to San Francisco. The first thing you see when you walk into the Cafe is this picture. I loved it.

In fact, I loved it so much I bought the hoodie and the t-shirt. You see, I have a deep and abiding love for all things old timey pin-up girls and burlesque, especially Vargas girls. Don’t tell my Parents but I was IN a Burlesque show. Actually, when I run for office, that will be part of my platform “Heck yeah, I was in a Burlesque show! I own it and am proud!” You know, the full transparency thing, these things made me the awesome, fun person I am today!

Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt and hoodie.

Anyway I decided since I am a cowgirl and I ain’t getting any younger it was time to do a photo-shoot on the Ranch. More specifically, a re-creation of this photo. So I contacted my friend Amy Brown  and Jenny Dewey and a bunch of our girlfriends and scheduled a day for a pin-up shoot. We plan on doing this photo and maybe some new updated versions of it. I’m excited! I do so love photo days at the Ranch, and I love photoshop even more! So stay tuned…..

Gorgeous Armada – Sleigh Trailer

As some of you may know, I was active in community theater for a hot minute. I had a ball and met some super fun people. My two favorite things I did while I was doing theater was the Burlesque Show  and the Gorgeous Armada Christmas Show. Watch the embedded youtube video. I was a chorus girl, you want to know which one is me, huh? Alright :09 seconds in. Yeah, yeah, I know. It was my “character”. The show was just as crazy as the video. I did it again the year after. It was two things that were on my bucket list – do burlesque and “be” in band. SO.MUCH.FUN.
