A Fun Thing To Do On A Wedding Reception Dancefloor

Whew! Back in the states now, but still on the way home. I’m sitting in O’Hare and uploading all my photos from the Lulu Summit and found these gems on my camera from Bonna’s wedding last month. I need to do a full post with the other photos, but here’s a little something to hold you over until then:

Bonna and Nate got married!
And while they were making the rounds saying hello to guests, 
we were breaking it down on the dancefloor. 
Duh. 
I went to take a photo of our crew, but the flash didn’t happen. 
So when I was “fixing” it, I apparently turned on the automatic timer…
and set it to take 10 photos once the timer went off. 
The photos we took were hilarious, so then, of course, we had to keep doing it. 

And the final one: 
You’re welcome. 
Happy Friday, guys!

M.I.A.

So between Bonna getting married last weekend
and tax prep ish this week… I haven’t been blogging. 
But there’s good stuff to come…

It’s a big news week: Post #1

So last week was busy. Sorry to leave you hanging. But lots of great stuff happened!

Exhibit A:
My BFF had her baby! 

And bonus points for going into labor on the one day 
that I was in town
and had no evening clients. 
This is why we work.

She would punch me in the face if I posted 
photos of her during contractions. 
(And I’m too good of a friend to do that to her. But trust me, she looked fab as usual.)
So you get behind the scenes photos instead.
The day: 
Playing cards in the waiting room with the other BFFs
(those are our bridesmaid’s necklaces from her wedding)
Bonna, Me, Crystal

Beyond excited!
Even though we kept getting kicked out of the room by the staff…
stupid rules.

Welcome to the world, 
Henry Charles.

You’ve got some serious people who have your back, you know? 

Such an amazing day.
Congrats Amanda and Josh!
We love you.

BFF Trip 2012: Charleston

Picking up from where we left off… 
Remember Bonna being bored in the car and crafting? 
These are the products of that boredom: 
FRIENDSHIP BRACELETS! 
That’s effing right, bitches. 
You remember making them, right?
 And strutting them.

Chillin’ at Folly Beach…
with my Katniss braid. 
Representing.

On our way to Sullivan’s Island beach. 
’cause pretty much all we did in Charleston, 
besides eat, 
was lay around and nap.

Bonna shaking the sand from her towel
in the most attractive way imaginable. 
Good use of wind, Bonna. 
Well done.

BFF Trip 2012: Day 1

Road trip travel is super exciting…
Pit stops for snacks, 
and cold Ale 8. 
*it’s a KY soft drink, not beer. don’t get cray. 
Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
Road construction that makes us cranky, 
because we’re losing valuable time.

Finally making it to a stopping point, 
and having to wake up early. 
We need more sleep.

BUT there’s a Cracker Barrel next to our hotel. 
Which means only one thing: 
I start the day out with a victory, 
bitches.

Hour 8 of driving, 
Bonna’s resorted to crafting in the car:

BFF Trip 2012 is now commencing!

This photo is from 2006, at a Kentucky Derby celebrity party.
 It has nothing to do with our BFF trip this weekend, 
BUT we look great,
AND feel just as excited today 
as we did on this night all those years ago… 
obvi. 
Note the cheesy smiles.
And me as a blonde. 

We’re headed out today for 5 glorious days of BFF time: Girl talk, no fellas, lounging by the pool (hopefully the weather’s warm enough for a tan), drinking wine, sightseeing, shopping, etc with NO interruptions. Yessssss.

We finally decided on Charleston, SC, 
because you guys voted on it. 
And because it’s really close to Savannah, GA 
so we figured we could kill two birds with one stone. 
And I love being efficient. 
Austin, TX, you’re up for next year’s trip. Sorry. 
Back on Tuesday, 
I’ll post photos! 
Have a great weekend everybody!

Ghetto Skyping

Me, Bonna, and Amanda are trying to finalize the BFF 2012 trip details… 
I Skype, they don’t. 
SO they download Skype so we can have a 3 -way convo. 
Then this happened:
Bonna’s video wouldn’t work. 
Then we discovered you can’t 3-way without paying for it. 
Amanda and I pay for it, Bonna can’t from her iPhone. 
I decide to speakerphone Bonna from a regular call so Amanda can hear her. 
THEN we decide to FaceTime Bonna from my iPhone, 
point her face at my computer, so she can us, we can see her, etc. 
It was GHETTO
But it worked. 
Amanda’s hubs, Josh laughed at us. 
My arm got tired. 
This is what it looked like: 
See Bonna’s tiny little head on my iPhone screen?
