wedding

pics from the weekend

first of all, here’s a pic from thursday, when foxycleopatra & i went to a charity event at a local salon & paid $10 to get a pink stripe in our hair.

it ended up fading the very next day, so we went to our regular hair stylist to get her to add more pink to it. it’s much more vibrant now. that first day, i didn’t get any comments on it at all. after i got it fixed, people have been telling me everywhere how much they love it!

okay, so here are some pics from our actual trip this weekend. these first couple are of my cousin’s baby, alexis (lexi for short). she is the most adorable little thing, and she is SO. GOOD. she hardly ever cries! she’s so good-natured and alert, always looking around and discovering.

here are some from the wedding:

my sis & i are famous for making up our own words for things, or just naming things in general. for example, our cars. mine is skipper & hers is gilligan (we bought them within a couple of weeks of each other).  we have lots of nicknames for each other. you already know that her name here on my blog is foxycleopatra. it was something she chose out of her head one day–the first thing she said–and i made her keep it. we also started calling each other butch & sundance, but neither one of us wanted to be called “butch”, so i came up with a new one instead, but now i can’t remember what it was! dang it.  we also like to make up our own words, usually by accident. the other day we were in the car, and i was somewhere between saying the s-word, the f-word, and god knows what else. what ended up coming out was “shark” (don’t ask). so that’s our new curse word. ha.

there are lots of things we’ve renamed over the years. one of our favorite shows when we were little was “the cosby show”, but we called it “cosby kids”.  we called “perfect strangers” balki. and i’m pretty sure i’ve mentioned how we call starbucks “warbucks” thanks to our nana.

anyway, my point is that it’s fun. that’s pretty much it. haha.

today we came down to georgia (the savannah area) for our cousin michael’s wedding to his lovely fiancee (now wife), macon. i’ll be posting pictures soonly. it was a lovely wedding, and macon was a beautiful bride! we decided to stay in georgia for the night so we could go out in savannah. we may be going for karaoke, or maybe just to a random bar. who knows?

pictures in a couple of days!

scarf swap!

i was right. the scarf swap was so much fun!  🙂 to be honest, i’d almost completely forgotten to be on the lookout for my scarf in the mail. i just happened to check the mail on our way out the door to a concert saturday night, and just what did i find there? my new scarf from my swap partner, paige!  so i threw it around my neck, & it made my boring outfit way cuter. it’s so cute– a pretty maroonish color with a very subtle pattern. if only i’d had my camera with me! i did remember to take a quick snapshot on my way out the door when i wore it to school yesterday.

it’s a lucky thing i remembered it yesterday, too! it got pretty windy and verrry rainy when the hubster & i went downtown for a quick trip to urban & then the mellow mushroom for lunch. so my scarf swap partner pagie is mega cool. go check out her blog & see the pretty pictures from her beautiful wedding, and posts of her cutie pie niece. 🙂

while i was visiting her blog, i found this, and me being me, i just couldn’t resist:

one letter at a time…

A–age: i’m 28, and i’m staying that way til i turn 30.

B–bed size: king. that’s why we let the dogs sneak into bed with us.

C–chore you hate: LAUNDRY. i hate, loathe, despise, and abominate laundry.

D–dog’s name:  axl and lola

E–essential start-your-day item:  coffee!

F–favorite color:  i love pink.

G–gold or silver or platinum:  platinum, please.

H–height:  5’3″ (i’m rounding up…heh…)

I–instruments you play:  piano & guitar. you didn’t say i had to play them *well* did you? b/c i definitely could use some guitar lessons…

J–job title:  full time student. i’m looking for some part-time work, though. my original plan after quitting real estate was to substitute teach, but how can i get up at 5am when i can’t even sleep at night?

K–kid(s):  none, thanks. maybe one day, but right now, no. we’ll stick with furbabies.

L–living arrangements:  my dogs own a 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath home in lovely south carolina, and they allow us to live with them. bless their little hearts.

M–mom’s name:  lisa (same as paige! funny!)

N–nickname(s):  tiff, tiffy, flossy mae (that one’s my papaw’s creation)

O–overnight hospital stay other than birth:  umm…i guess when i was little & had kidney problems. i think i was two.

P–pet peeve:  ignorance.

Q–quote from a movie:  “letting everyone down would be my greatest unhappiness.”  ~marie antoinette

R–righty or lefty:  righty

S–siblings:  one sister, foxycleopatra. and a brother-in-law (the hubster’s brother).

T–time you wake up:  on mon/wed/fri, i get up at 8:30am for school. tues/thurs i get up whenever i feel like it. i don’t have school til 6pm those days.

U–underwear:  victoria’s secret. today they’re an apricot color with tiny white scrolls all around.

V–vegetable you dislike:  i really love vegetables. i suppose the one i like the least would be cauliflower.

W–ways you run late:  thinking i need less time than i actually do, hitting snooze, waiting on the hubster, forgetting stuff…

X–x-rays you’ve had:  lungs, knee, teeth…i think that’s all.

Y–yummy food you make:  the last thing i made that was really yummy was a chicken soup with pastina. it had a really zingy lemony flavor with spinach and feta, and it’s fairly easy, as it’s made with a rotisserie chicken.

Z–zoo favorite: gorillas & other monkeys. they’re so much fun to watch!! gorillas just look like really furry people when they move around and make gestures & stuff. so fun.

download this:  “angel from montgomery” by john prine (not sung by bonnie raitt. sung by john prine.)  i’ve been listening to this song a lot lately for some reason. then i remembered kristen stewart sings it in “into the wild,” and she does a really good job. it’s a great song.

today’s fave etsy item:  mr. & mrs. scatter pillows by idotakeu. there’ve been so many weddings lately, i figured a wedding-themed item would be good. wouldn’t this be a cute wedding gift? hmm…i’ve another one to attend this saturday… 😉
