the three best friends reunion part {1.}...

Does everyone remember the epic San Francisco adventure I had with some of my ibffs (now real life bffs)? No? Well click here and here, then you can be all caught up.

Now I will get to the point of this post. At the beginning of December Ashton and I journeyed to Flo-rida to see our bff Lauren get married! This meant the MOST stressful flight experience of my life...which included frantic Nook tweeting to Ash, and sprinting through the Hot-lanta airport to catch my flight. Overall, it worked out...thankfully. It was also SO worth it. We had a freaking blast. Since I have quite a few pictures, I am basically going to do a few posts about our adventure. Please, sit back, relax, and enjoy the picture explosion.

The Three Best Friends Reunion: Part {1.}...

This is perhaps the most sicknast photo in existence. I mean ew, especially when it comes to my horrible face. Oh wells, this was our "Reunnnittted and it feeels sooooo gooood" picture. Disclaimer: This was taken after a day full of running through airports and that is why we look like this. Whatever. I still love this picture because I love these ladies.

The next morning Ash and I got to sleep in, while Lar was having her brunch. Lauren was sweet enough to get us an adjoining room next to hers, and let us use her car the WHOLE weekend. Thanks for everything Lar. She also recommended that we go to a restaurant called, 'Another Broken Egg.' It was my friends. We ordered some beignets as an appetizer...they were bite sized orgasms. Holler.

Here is the lovely Ashton, thoroughly enjoying her delicious breakfast. I had SO much fun hanging with her the entire weekend. She is hilarious and gives amazing advice. She is lovely, funny, and has one of the biggest hearts. Ash, I love your face sister from another mister.

Not only did Lauren totally get us a free hotel room, she also treated us to manis and pedis. It was so sweet of her, but that is Lauren for you. She was super sneaky about it...but we got her back for it. Trust.

Here is a MUCH better Three Best Friends Reunion picture. The first was taken WAY too late, after WAY too long of a day. This was taken after a good nights sleep, some makeup, and fierce outfits. Holler.

So, these are just the first batch of photos from the trip. Many more will be coming your way. What I can say now is that I had an amazing time, and that I love these girls so much. Anyone who says that you cannot find 'real' friends full of it. These two are lifers. Ladies, I love you both and I miss you both. Our next trip needs to be planned STAT!

Until Part {2.}...

this is what my job entails...

I know I talk about 'The Job' quite a bit on my blog. That is probably because it consumes about 85% of my life at the moment. Would you all like a peek into what the happenings have been like in my office for the past week? Yes? Ok...this is what went down on Tuesday.

Yep. Santa AND his merry little Elf came to kick it with us at the office. be be honest they came to bring presents to the women and children in our perinatal treatment program, but we still got a picture with him. I wish I could share the pictures of the women and the kids, they had SO much fun. It was so joyous I actually teared up. Unfortunately, due to HIPPA laws I am unable to share those photos. So...I will share one of my co-workers.

From left to right: Cindy, who is the always sweet and patient daycare worker, who Susan and I torment with our foul mouths and crudeness. Then there is Bob, who is retiring next week. He has been my direct supervisor since I started working there. Then there is the Elf dude, who was SO good with all the kids. Then there is little ol' me. Santa of course. Crouched down in front of me is my work bff and favorite co-worker EVER Susan.

Merry Christmas y'all. Just is NEVER too old to get their picture taken with Santa Claus.

So, almost a year ago I won a giveaway that my name twin, Alexa had on her blog. The big prize was a $50.00 gift certificate to The Vintage Pearl. This store is A.Maz.Ing. I love it so very much, I also just finally used the gift certificate. On Friday this little gem arrived on my doorstep. It is so precious...

I got another little lovely last weekend as well. While I was in Florida with Ashton and Lauren (post on that epic trip to come), they gifted me with a 'congratulations on your life' gift. It is very obvious by this gift that these ladies 'get' me and are my soul sisters...

I love them. I also love this t-shirt...and it is no secret that I love me some Sprinkles cupcakes. Holler.

i have a question...

Over the weekend I was recuperating from the flu. This means that I curled up on the couch with a blanky and watched movies and caught up on my DVR. Minus the whole flu part, it was lovely. On Saturday night, my sidekick Bug was curled up with me. We decided to get into the holiday spirit and watch 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas', the Jim Carrey edition. I love that movie, it is le adorable.
However, as I was watching this movie I couldn't help but think...

This is the OG (original gangster) version of sweet little Cindy Lou Who...

This is the real life movie version of the way adorable Cindy Lou Who...

This is what happens when the real life version of Cindy Lou Who turns 17...

Holy crap. Christmas is in some serious trouble my friends. All I can think of is some crazy spin off porn video starring Cindy Lou Who. AKA Little J. AKA Taylor Momson. You know... along the lines of 'How The Grinch Stole My Virginity' or something sick like that. How does THIS happen?

Seriously. This has disturbed me all day. Ha!

Merry Christmas!

pardon me...

I will happily be away from my blog until next week. Why? Because I am journeying to Flo-rida. Why?

The Three Best Friends Reunion..

YES! I cannot wait to be reunited with Lauren and Ashton. Seriously, they are real life besties who I met via this little ol' blog of mine. Also, Lauren is getting MARRIED on Saturday! I am so happy for her. Ash and I cannot wait to see her be made an honest woman ;-).

So there you have it. I leave today, get back on Sunday. Florida, look out. You have a tornado of awesome heading your way!

random thoughts {1.}...

I am the worst blogger right now. Oh, least I try. Right? Right. I have zero interesting going on in my life right now. Seriously. So, I am going to share some random thoughts I had throughout my day with y'all...

{1.} Oh my sweet, sweet baby Jesus can you PLEASE hook a sister up and rid me of this heinous sickness that has been cast down upon my being?! Seriously. I am a sicknast hacking, sneezing, earache ridden mess. Plus, my throat is wicked sore and I sound like a dude...or a REALLY masculine woman...or a heavy smoker. *Let the record show, I am not any of those things.

{2.} I got to actually testify in court on behalf of one of my clients last week, and the attorney said, "Let the record show Ms. H***** indicated my client in her statement." I felt SO freaking legit. It was like being on one of those killer/crime/solved in 45 minutes/lawyer/cop tv shows. It was legen-wait for it-dary.

{3.} My coworker Susan was gone Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of last week. We share an office and we hang out and talk shizz all day long. She is hilar and 75% of the reason why I love my job so much. Basically, I was bored out of my skull for the majority of last week. Thank goodness she came back today...or I was going to have to start talking to myself. Which I already do. The point? I missed her like whoa.

{4.} I bought the CUTEST shoes over the weekend. They are from the Kohl's Vera Wang Collection, and were on sale. I will have to post a picture once I wear them. They are the sexiest black platform heels ever. They are like 4 3/4 tall. I feel like an amazon woman in them...but I love them so freaking bad.

{5.} The last thought leads me to this thought: I need these shoes for a wedding. On Saturday. I am going to Florida for it on Thursday. I get to see Lar get married. I get to chill with her AND Ashton. I am beyond excited! Watch out comes California!
