It's Monday and you know that means, reliving the this and thats of the weekend. And what a weekend it was. Not only did it feel like spring time here, my girls got tan lines from playing outside. I think the "winter" weather has officially ended in these parts and I am not complaining one single bit.
So, some of you already know that Ross and I attended a hospital gala on Saturday night (aka adult prom). As much fun as it was to get all fancified in my BCBG steal of a deal, the event itself was somewhat stuffy. However, the people watching was the highlight of the night. I snuck a few pictures of some "Oh, my, is she really wearing that?" dresses, but I decided to be nice and not post any of the pictures. You never know who is reading your blog.
So, the food was not my fave, think bloody filet mignon. Gross. It gives me the willies just thinking about. I may or may not have secretly spit it back into my napkin, wrapped it tightly into a ball and placed under the table. The only thing that made it's way into my belly was a salad and chocolate cake. And, oh yeah, rum and diet cokes and a glass or two of bubbly. And you know what happens when you drink on a half empty stomach. The said drinks hit ya a little bit harder and a tad bit faster. And it doesn't help that the bartender named Angel liked to pour...a lot. Open bars equal headache the next day. We did have a really nice time, met up with some former colleagues that we haven't seen in ages, played a little blackjack and met some crazy wasted ladies outside. Man, I could write an entire blog post about these gals. Being the blogger that I am, I tried with everything I had to get a picture of the three amigos, but they caught me every time I tried to sneak a camera click. Trust me, they were a reality show in the making.
It took me almost the entire day to recover from "adult prom" on Sunday, but I finally mustered up the energy to get Super Bowl, Houston Texans style ready. We headed over to our friends' hood where they set up a big screen of the game. Yep, that's how we do things in Texas, BIG. I dropped the queso that Ross spent hours making, so he said. I thought about scooping it up and putting it back in the crockpot. You know, the five second rule, but I couldn't bring myself to be "that girl". There was more than plenty of grub to grub on, so nobody really missed the cheese anyway. And can we talk about Beyonce? Holy hotness. I swear that woman is something fierce. I have seen my fair share of Super Bowl half time shows, and I think her's was one of the best...if ya don't count Prince. That one is still my fave of all time.
And a blog post wouldn't be a blog post without me telling you a few things to go out and buy. I like to help stimulate the economy. It's my civil duty. So, I have blogged about this self tanner before. It's been awhile, so I thought I would bring it up again. Xen-Tan is hands down the BEST sunless tanner I have used. It goes on clear, gives gradual color and the smell doesn't make you wanna barf. It's $40 at Ulta or Nordstrom. It also lasts a long time; at least 10+ applications. And nope, it won't turn you into a Oompa-loompa.
I found these Nine West heels at DSW this weekend. They were 50% and less than $40. I couldn't resist. Did I need them? Nope? Did I want them? Yep. If you have a DSW in your area, I highly suggest you pop on in. They had some great deals and super fun choices.
Last but not least, I never gave you guys a recap on my styling appointment in San Antonio last week. It was another fun one. We made a total of 72 outfits from what she already owned. Here is a peek at how I suggested she style her red skinny jeans. She is a stay at home mom, so we wanted casual, fun and flirty and also threw in a few date night ideas.
That's all I got. What were you crazy cats up to this weekend? Did ya get in any trouble? Spend some money? Drool over Beyonce like I did?
