Here's a little tribute to one of our favorite vintage stores in down town Elgin. It's Keeny's, of course! A sporting goods store on top and a vintage treasure below. We had to buy our middle school gym uniforms from here and that's when I first found out about what the basement held. Such AMAZING clothes!! Although, I didn't fully enjoy it until I got a little older. haha The owner's name was Patricia Keeney. She was a funky little old lady. She always had on all this crazy cool jewelry and she'd always be watching some soap opera up in the sporting goods area. She passed away recently and even though her fellow shop owners kept her shop open for a bit after that, I only ever see it look like it does above lately. : / I miss Keeney and I miss her amazing collection of clothes, jewelry, dishware, magazines, books, toys, and so much more.

On Friday, Anna and I went out to dinner with our parents. We went to Al's cafe and creamery. I may or may not have already mentioned Al's before. I lovelovelove Al's! And isn't it such a cute place?? I think it used to be the post office or an office building. I'm not sure. It's just really old and still has a lot of features from whatever it used to be inside.
Featured is a picture of their amazing veggie cheese burger, my favorite. Also a picture of an onion that I thought looked like a power ranger and Anna thought it looked like Nacho Libre. What do YOU think?!
So on our way home after dinner I had our mom pull over so I could take some pictures of Keeney's and of course an outfit shoot. Our first public shot, apart from those people in a van in our driveway. haha I have to admit, it was a little awkward. I feel awkward enough taking pictures in front of Anna but add in my parents and complete strangers! AWKward. haha
