Let’s do it …
… “The last 10 pictures I took with my phone”
The Bride and a Cabana
As I’ve mentioned, I was out of town this time last weekend to participate in my friend’s wedding. I’ll have more pictures of the weekend up next week, but here you have the bride at breakfast the morning of the wedding rocking her custom hoody with the bling on the bootie. We (the bridesmaids) all has custom embroidered tank tops. She did it up big. I think we were supposed to get custom embroidered flip flops too (which she was rocking later that day), but the resort didn’t accept her packages and many of the wedding items didn’t make the wedding. #FAILURE!!
The 2nd picture is actually the current wallpaper on my phone. It’s one of the cabana dealies at the resort where you just layout and relax. Right next to it is the pool, bar and restaurants so what else do you need *aaaaaawwwww* #relax
Jewelry & yet another green tea latte
I took this picture to send to my sister-in-law. We caught wind of the aforementioned bridesmaids tanks that we were slated to get upon arriving ot the resort last week, so we wanted to make sure we brought jewelry to match #fancy. The tanks were white with orange writing, so I grabbed these 2 pairs of extra orange earrings just in case. It turns out neither of us wore either pair, and I didn’t even end up taking the jewelry box pictured (which I got during the diva swap during #StLSocialMediaChicks weekend).
I took this picture to upload to Foursquare. Oh and big surprise, the next picture is a grande green tea latte from Starbucks in the Atlanta airport. We had a buttcrack of dawn flight, so the minute we landed I headed in like a zombie and got one of my favorite AM beverages. #nomnomnom
Ini in a Box & my Janky Phone at Work
I took this picture to send to whoissugar. She and I are always joking around about how much we have in common. She did a video and one of her drawings reminded me of this drawing I did EONS ago at my desk at work on day (I believe that’s a box from my cordless headset at my last contracting gig). Ini in a Box now lives on top of my desk at home as a motivator.
I took this picture to upload to twitter. I have the jankiest oldest piece of junk phone at work. I have no headset (long story*) and have no clue how to check the voicemail messages. I’ve been here for over 19 months now, and it’s never been an issue until last week when I was trying to trouble shoot with the helpdesk and they said they’d call me back. I got scared they’d left a message (evidenced by the red light) and realized I DON’T KNOW HOW TO CHECK THE BLASTED VOICEMAIL MESSAGES ON THIS CHUNKAJUNK!!! I had an “episode” on twitter asking for help, and at one point uploaded this photo to see if anyone knew how to use this thing. No luck.
Bootleg skirt made from deconstructed dress & pre-vacation wishes
I took this picture to send to a friend/the bride. I always change my desktop backgrounds at work to travel pictures. Prior to leaving for my Mexico trip, I was doing only tropical photos and had this shot of the Bahamas up to keep my mind right. Too bad it was overcast and rainy the entire duration of our trip. #sunshineFAIL
A Wall of Cotton and Louisiana Cafe
I took this photo to upload to Foursquare. Hubby is in fashion school. Wasn’t sure when was a good time to tell ya’ll that so there you go. He just started this semester and is drawing and sewing up a storm already. Me thinks he wants his own clothing line one day, but don’t quote me. If I get a couple sheath dresses out the deal I’ll be elated. Anyhoo … we made a quick stop at a fabric store the other day so he could do recon and purchase a fabric for a project (which he got like a 98 on btw).
The last shot is of one of my favorite eateries here in St. Louis: Louisiana Cafe. I took this photo to upload to Foursquare. These Katrina transplants opened this authentic cajun restaurant in an old A&W Root Beer location about 5 minutes from my house. Trust me when I say I was happy to find them. Saying I live in “generica” is an understatement, we definitely lack cultural spots around these parts. The food at Louisiana Cafe is amazing every time and I’ve probably introduced many people to this spot over the years.
And there you have it. As always the pictures are diverse and fun to show you guys. I have ALOT going on this weekend, including currently hosting the Show Me The Blog Conference and my friend (the bride above) is having a 2nd reception/after party/bridesmaids-stay-in-the-hotel thing for the St. Louis crowd. Please pray that I have an “effortless” weekend and I pray you do as well!
Until next time Glam Fam I wish you
Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Nappyness,
*Basically a coworker stole my headset off my desk when I wasn’t there. My other coworker ratted on him and I never said anything because that mess was broken anyway #haFoolJokesOnYou. Apparently he assumed since I am a part-time contractor that I was not in need of said headset and proceeded to tell my coworkers that while he stole mine off my desk. Yes you read that right, this fool TOLD my other coworker that I didn’t need it as much as he did. #noComment
