All Over The Place

Its Friday, the Friday before a three day weekend which pretty much means my mind is all over the place there by rendering me useless when it comes to writing a coherent post (which I assure you will be all over the place as well). So that said, lets do some bullet points today shall we?

* Last night I proudly watched my aunt graduate from college and win a special award for being an outstanding student. The ceremony was really nice allowing for special family members to pin the newly graduated nursing students. I cried may have gotten something in my eye during the processional when they played pomp and circumstance and when her name was called. I know that for my aunt getting this degree was a lot of hard work, she went to school full time while working full time and made a lot of sacrifices. My whole family is having a surprise graduation party for her on Sunday and I’m really excited about it.

* Today my friend Jen is getting MARRIED!! Jen and I became friends by way of our blogs. I can’t remember when we first “met” but it feels like we’ve been friends our whole lives. She and her fiancĂ© (along with a small group of family) will be getting on a boat at twilight, exchanging vows near sunset, and celebrating the start of a beautiful marriage together as a family. The past few months I have completely abused the use of capital letters and exclamation points while exchanging text messages and emails with Jen counting down the weeks, days, and then hours to this day, but she hasn’t seemed to mind. Jen, I wish you nothing but infinite amounts of happiness and love. Congratulations my friend!

* In other less exciting news, I gave myself a mani/pedi with what my new favorite OPI nail polish color, Can You Tapas This?, it’s the perfect transitional color from summer to autumn, darker without being too dark. Am I the only one with an obsession of wearing darker nail colors in the fall as opposed to bright fun colors in the summer? What’s your favorite nail color for fall?

* I’m not really a morning person and some tasks just prove to be too difficult before the hour of, let’s say 10 or 11-ish. Typical things like having an actual conversation with someone, using my blinker on the way to work (even though apparently I still believe other people should), and eating my yogurt. You might not think eating yogurt is hard, but I challenge each and every one of you to try to eat it with a fork. Its harder than you think. This morning I failed miserably. And by failed miserably, I mean I completely missed my mouth and dropped a fork full of blueberry yogurt on to my shirt. Go ahead laugh, but then tomorrow you try it. I dare you.

That’s all I have for today. Have a happy safe three day weekend all! Mine will include catching up on sleep, lots of family time, lots of drinking (because spending time with my family requires alcohol), playing cornhole, having fun and officially saying good-bye to summer. Have a great one!

Your aunt is SO cool. Kudos to her for making a change she needed/wanted to make in her life.

Ah! I forgot today was jen's wedding day. I can't wait to hear all about it on her blog =)

Happy weekend, friend. Enjoy the end of summer/start of fall.

Totally loving the fall nail colors. Mine are currently gray, which is eliciting strange looks from other people but I am a FAN.

So, I've got to ask: WHY are you eating your yogurt with a fork in the first place?!

Enjoy the weekend!

Congrats to your aunt!

*hanging head in shame* Will I be shunned if I admit that I don't own a single bottle of nail polish? My neice thinks this is craziness!

Have a great holiday weekend!! :)

That's so cool about your aunt! I also love OPI nail polish!

Personally I think there are only one or two few fashion rules to abide by and one of them is wear darker nail polish the later in the year -OR- according to the weather. If I lived in Cancun it would be perfectly acceptable to wear hot pink in January. But I don't, so I don't.

Oh, and for the past week or so I swear to God every time I turn around that damn Journey song is playing! So now I ~sing~ your blog title every time I read it. ACK!

LiLu said...

I'm getting a mani/pedi tomorrow. I'm totally going to look for that color!

Congrats to Jen :-)

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! It sounds like you had some pretty awesome things to do.

I was in NC for a friend's wedding, and it was interesting. (: I'm sitting in the airport waiting for my flight now, heh.

I love the change in nail color as well! I am currently wearing a sparkly blue shade, but am ready for plums and deep reds. Love OPI!

I was going to comment on something else but forgot. Hope you have a great weekend!

Kyla Roma said...

That's so cool about your aunt! I hear they hold those ceremonies in really dusty places, it's totally normal to get something in your eye ;)

Enjoy the manicure! I'm getting gel nails (I think!) for fall for something fun, we'll see!

Frank said...

I hope your aunt doesn't read your blog, otherwise your surprise party will be ruined! ;)

Bayjb said...

Wow that sounds like a busy weekend! I can't wait to hear about it. I love that OPI color, I just went to check it out. I need to move away from the hot pink finally :)

Katie said...

Hope your weekend was good!

Congratulations to your aunt. That is such a huge accomplishment! I feel like I need to take a nap on her behalf.

Vanessa said...

Congratulations to your Aunt; that is so exciting!

My favorite OPI color is Keys to my Karma and I wear it pretty much year round, but only on my toes.

Andy said...

I SAW THAT ONE WHEN I WAS IN AN OPI STORE BEFORE I LEFT!!! It's the Spanish collection! :) I was going to buy it then I saw I had the same in another brand.

And as for nail colors? Well, I took all of mine here. Seems like I wear pink year round.

I only give myself mani/pedis. I love, love, love deep purples, blues, and greens.
