Tiger Bait

This weekend I got to go to New Orleans! A ton of my mom’s family went to the University of Washington, who just do happened to be playing LSU this weekend! And I will take any excuse to go to New Orleans. While I dressed ambiguously to avoid any heckling, my cousins were decked out in their UDUB attire, so nearly every LSU fan we passed yelled “TIGER BAIT” at us. But that was to be expected. We stayed at the lovely Waldorf Astoria in the French Quarter and ate some of the best food! I can’t wait to go back!

Giants Among Men

After my 20 hour day on Wednesday, a little time off was exactly what I needed. I cannot think of any place better than my grandparents house. It is so relaxing just to be on vacation. And being in California can’t hurt either! But, we didn’t stay in one place for too long because yesterday, my family, my cousin, her baby, my grandpa, and two of my uncles went to a San Francisco Giants game! It was such a beautiful day and I had a great time. And a fight almost broke out (which I though was really exciting). Now I am at my beach house so get ready for some seriously scenic pictures.

P.S. You’re supposed to wear cowboy boots to a baseball game, right?

The Power of Positive Thinking

So yesterday I flew to California! Woo! I had to wake up at 4:00 a.m. to catch my 6:00 a.m. flight to Atlanta, and then flew from Atlanta to San Francisco! California is seriously one of the greatest places ever, and even though I come here twice a year, I never get tired of it. But I was incredibly tired after my day yesterday. Because California is 2 hours behind, so when you think it’s 9 o’clock and a semi-reasonable time to go to bed, it’s really only 7 o’clock. But I mustered through it and here I am. As soon as we get into San Fran, it is a tradition for my Grandpa to take my mother, sister, and me to Nordstrom and eat at the cafe there (we also do a little shopping). So, after we finished eating, I wanted to go look at all the makeup- because lately I’ve had some obsession with makeup counters. I went straight to the YSL and found this gorgeous red lipstick. Now, normally, I don’t wear red lipstick on a day-to-day basis. But, once I found this one (#18 red taboo), everything changed. I fell in love. But, when the lady went behind the counter to look for it, THEY WERE OUT. I was devastated. Fortunately, the anniversary sale is coming up, so what better excuse than that to go back?

P.S. I never got to do an complete photo shoot because I passed out as soon as I got to the house, so all of these were either taken at the airport, on my computer on the plane, or in the car. SORRY

Going To The Chapel

This weekend has been one of the best times I have had in a really long time. My cousin got married in Jackson, Mississippi and almost all the family made it to the wedding. I love being able to see all my cousins because we barely all ever get together (which  I think we need to change). While we were there, we went to the rehearsal dinner, did a little shopping, went to the wedding, and had a big family breakfast. It was a fantastic weekend and I loved seeing all my family.

P.S. The tape on my fingers looks awesome, right? It’s my new favorite accessory. Completely kidding- I jammed my finger while I was playing basketball and it swelled up and turned blue. I didn’t think you wanted to see it.

P.P.S. In the second set of pictures, I had just bought that watch before taking them. There was this cute little shop called Turkoyz and there was this adorable rose gold watch and I had to have it.

P.P.P.S. I made the mistake of not taking picture before the wedding, so please excuse the fact that I look a little insane and disheveled. I promise I looked decent during the ceremony.
