First and foremost, can we all thank my amazing husband (who’s gotten a lot of love on the blog this week), for doing something to my poor laptop to make it run faster? I have this adorable pink Dell that my dad got me for my Elon graduation in 2009 – I’m trying to squeeze a few more months out of it while I save up for a Mac, and you guys better watch out for the Mac attack because I will be on that thing, editing photos and writing like a crazy person.
Moving right along.
So, yesterday, I participated in Peachy Keen’s fall fashion show. Remember, I did their show last spring?
Because of the fashion show (which was a blast) here’s what my day looked like.
The night before, I stupidly drank two extremely large glasses of wine, knowing full well I wanted to be up and ready to go to work by 6am (ish) so I could work for the day and then head to makeup for the show. So I woke up, feeling awesome (absolutely not) and sobbed through a shower. Or at least I felt like sobbing.
I worked for the day, got a 5ish or 6ish miler in, and headed to makeup for the show.
The show was Frozen-themed, so makeup was pretty, blue, and ethereal-looking. And the second I got done with makeup, I laid down on a bench in the dressing room with a tiny pillow, and fell asleep. I felt nothing, heard nothing, and have no idea how long I was out for, bout it was just long enough to feel refreshed and walk the show no problem.
I don’t want to spoil anything for when the real shots are done being edited and all that fun stuff, so take a little gander at this backstage…
Makeup was awesome, hair looks good, and the show went off without a hitch. I even felt myself moved by the spirit, and danced a little on the runway.
IMMEDIATELY following the show, I kid you not, I asked Austin to unzip the back of my dress, and I faceplanted on the bed at about 8:45pm. The only other time in my adult life I ever remember going to bed that early was once when I had a Zumba training that I went to after a wedding. I promptly found myself wide awake at 4am, in a mod dress from Loft, wondering where I went so wrong in my life.
But I digress.
What are your guys’ weekend plans, especially given that this weekend is Halloween?
Me? Come hell or high water, I will play with this…
This is my new baby that I have yet to get a chance to play with! I finally got my L-Press from Charlotte, so I would love to break it out and play with it, and in my WILDEST fantasies, get it up and running in time to shoot off some holiday cards. I can dream big, can’t I?
