Vespa Love

Pin It I named my scooter. Her name is now Rosie, and you will see why in a moment. First a before picture.

Please excuse the poor lighting. Notice the 300 on the side. It came with the scoot and I never really liked it. So I took it off and added......

A Rosie the Riveter decal on the side instead of the 300. I think it suits both my Vespa and myself. I'm a real life Rosie, although I don't rivet. I do work building airplanes for a company that made many of the famous bombers during WWII. I work on a daily basis inside the wings of large commercial airplanes. I'm immensely proud of the work I do. And I do a job that few people can perform.

Here is a close-up of the decal. I ordered it off Amazon, and it is advertised to go on the back of a laptop. But I think it is perfect on my little Rosie.

Now I just need to lose 20 pounds and I'll go get some pin up photos taken with me and Rosie.

No Sewing Excuse #2

Pin It Meet my new baby. She doesn't have a name yet.

Isn't she gorgeous. I took my Basic Motorcycle Training class Labor Day weekend. Tuesday I left work early and got my motorcycle endorsement added to my license. Then I went home and anxiously waited for my Hubby to wake up (he works 3rd shift). He drove me down to Scooter Barn in Lynnwood, Washington and I bought my little beauty.

I just got back from my first group ride. About fifty scooters met up in Duvall and rode a 63 mile route. I put almost 100 miles on my scoot just today. It was SUPER fun. OMG. I had breakfast and then didn't eat all day because I was having so much fun. This scoot might turn out to be a great diet. LOL.
