happy tuesday from the farm!
oh lawd. i'm back on the farm. back with my gals. back with my man...the farmer.
my farmer - that fella deserves a vacation. he took the girls for me for three full days so i could jet off to atlanta to attend a little mixer // deal // blog // thingy. honestly...i'm not sure what it was, but i do know i got a lot of free stuff. #winning
|please excuse my exceptionally haggard look. that georgia humidity + rain is no joke for this desert dweller.|
what i'm saying is...if there is someone that you've chatted back and forth and back and forth with via blog and you think it might be fun to meet them...DO IT. all i have to do now is talk jessica into a ski vacation with her family in tow. kaye and caleb // sawyer and vivi = fast friends i'm sure.
moving on. i also attended something called the maiedae mixer hosted by a couple of gals who know how to pack 35 strangers in a room and provide for a good time! there was a Photo Booth. there was an art project. there was champagne // wine // TONS of dessert. i got to meet some super motivated // talented gals who have mostly all started their own little businesses. what i'm saying is...i have a load of blog // instagram stalking to do so i can learn the tricks of the trade. i'm so motivated to really get party and paper a little face // space of its own so people know i'm here! i'm here to design your custom paper goods! (business cards // letterhead // party invitations // postcards // wedding package...guys...i have you covered.)
after such a super fun weekend i had to catch a flight...and by catch i mean i SPRINTED through the airport with my luggage trying to catch my flight home. this was after being harassed by the rental car people about payment (i pre-paid...they didn't seem to understand that) and getting stopped at security for like...15 minutes for my breast milk i had pumped while i was away. and guess what...i missed my flight. thankfully they were able to switch me over to a different airline and i still made my connecting flight home...but it made for quite the stressful travel day...which reminded me of exactly why i prefer driving over flying. nine hours in the car...sure. nine hours trapped in an airport // airplane...no thanks. what i'm saying is...if you want to hang out, you'll have to come to me. i'll buy the drinks for your travel troubles.
so...happy tuesday. here's to a great week. and here's to not looking suuuuuper awkward during our family pictures happening tomorrow! wish us luck. (it's always hard competing with my farmer...he's so obviously the better looking of the two of us...) #fishingforcompliments
