That Baby Don't Look Like Me....

Or should I say "That Bitstrip Don't Look Like You" .....
I mean I understand the whole craze on Facebook, they are fun to do but seriously if you are going to make a bitstrip of yourself....how about you make one that looks like you.  I mean e'erybody...eeeerrrrryyyybody don't look like Kerri Washington and Morris Chestnut nor do you all resemble Scarlett Johansson or Ryan Gosling...and nor should your bitstrips look like them as well. Chunky people make themselves skinny, skinny people pretend like they are not "that" thin.  Girls with short hair make long hair and guys who are barely growing a beard have bitstrips with full face beard and Burt Reynolds mustaches.. (does a face palm)

Sometimes I feel like I should go to each and everyone of them and point out what is wrong, but than that is wrong...I mean who am I to judge. I have one and people probably think it doesn't look like me..nah...mines looks like me...it can't be anyone but me...right?





Well people I am all for the bitstrips...it is fun and addictive but at the same time..be true to yourself...and add some wrinkles...some of you need wrinkles..

peace and love

She's Alive!!!!





So I started blogging a long long time ago, but it was around September/October.  Because October is my lucky month and it is my "Gets $#!% Done" month. Well I was some reading old post and thought wait a minute...why did I stop doing this...

I mean I still drink beer on Thursday, and the day of Tuesdays still throws a tantrum. I still meet weird people, I live in downtown Long Beach now....how can I not see strange thangs every now and then.

I still like to travel and relax and do fun things...with my honey bear (my husband) now. We get mad goofy together. I still watch t.v. and comment on it as if they can hear me. I try to do super snooty fancy smancy crafty things every now and then.

I miss my top tens and my crazy rants...not sure if anyone will ever come and read this again...but yes...this blog is coming alive...and she is going to eat your breakfast...

so please have things like grapes, egg whites and yogurt for breakfast cause she needs to eat healthy these days.

With that being said...since I am bringing this blog back in style like my 2013 campaign for the bankhead bounce (which I plan continue to carry over into 2014) I will do two more post tonight...

who cares if I am talking to just myself.

Wednesday, August 31

We came we saw we conquered....

So we were married on the 13th of August...I'm patiently wait for the pictures from the photographer...

meanwhile my sister the photographer took great pictures that can be found on her website....

One thing I did want to do was to let those who help make the day lovely be recognized...like the cake pop baker and the cupcake maker... :)

the venue and photographer...

I want to show my final result of my centerpieces and all the sweat, tears, and blood (yes..I had a hot glue accident ... was painful but I know Martha Stewart wouldn't allow me to cry thug tears...)

Just wanted to share in the work of the day ...our day and mixture of cultures.

I worked around the clock *especially that last week, yikes!!!*

I yelled and screamed and had a meltdown the day before...oh I was a B to the Z to the illa with a little bit of super stank in it... and I didn't want to be.

The next day I was calm (so I guess I needed to freak out the day before...it's okay to freak out before...it means you care)... the day of I had no meltdowns regardless of the things what went wrong and somethings went wrong, still we had a good time. :)

My husband (weird to say and kind of still surreal) suggested that I could do wedding coordinator as a job after since I enjoy all the planning so much and now I miss it and feel bored and empty without something to keep me busy...

Honestly....I did enjoy coming up with ideals...but unlike every other bride who plans her wedding and becomes "the queen of all wedding planning"...

I've decided...it's not for me. It has always been a dream of mines to be a wedding coordinator and to work with brides and their weddings but living it made me realize...I just couldn't join such a group of over paid, over priced people for under quality work perform and done(aka the wedding industry)... I couldn't live with suggesting over priced vendors to my brides or watch as one tells me she is willing to spend over $6,000 on centerpieces... huh??? I would always try to talk the couples into eloping and saving money and leaving me out of making money...(I am too frugal)

One thing I did love was making my shoes...and centerpieces and coming up with unique ideals.

So that is what I would like to offer other brides.

Tips on things you don't realize and tips on things people tell you often but still don't mean a thing until it hits you and you find yourself unprepared because they told you what to avoid but didn't give you advice on exactly how to avoid it.

I also want to make shoes for girls..and centerpieces and other things to make a wedding day "your special day"...

only difference is...my service is a gift and it won't be for all...just who I randomly decide to bless because all brides need some light at the end of the tunnel and I can't give them all light but I can help one or two when given the chance.


With that being said...


Things I learned after the wedding about the wedding and being married that no one told me....

Tip #1. Practice writing your new name
(I know you'll focus on invites and making sure you have a name changing kit but what good is changing it if you can't write it or don't feel comfortable writing it. Seems silly but really take time out to write it...that way when the husband gives you the check book and you start shoe shopping ...people won't think you stole some random guy's money.) :D

Peace and Love
The Mrs.
