Hey guys!


This past weekend KICKED MY BUTT.

I'm battling allergies, a cold, a fever, and a black eye. LOL. Yeahhhh buddy!

On Friday, our friends from College Station came in to visit. We went to Trudy's for dinner and then headed to my friend Kelly's house afterwards.

We were playing Ping Pong and I thought I'd show off by throwing the ping pong paddle in the air really fast and then proceed to catch it with one hand.

I accomplished this task three times. Why not go for a fourth?

BAM. The ping pong paddle got me in the eyeball. Hurt like a BEEP.

Here's my eye the next morning in all its glory.


So sexy.

Saturday, I had a meeting with a bride and then we had friends over to watch the Aggies and of course, their second half collapse happened...yet again. #notcool
Sunday, we watched more football (I seriously despise fantasy league football right now because it rules all my "free" weekends now) and I got some things done around the house. I was supposed to have a photoshoot, but one of the little girls in the photoshoot got herself a black eye so we had to reschedule.

What is it with the black eyes? Hahaha.

THIS weekend I'm going to New Orleans to celebrate my best friend Jenni's birthday.

I've never been to NOLA, so I'm pretty excited! Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do!? Places to go? eat? drink? Suggestions are welcome! :)

I'm out like a fat kid in dodgeball...I need to go drink some thera-flu so I can be ready for the BIG EASY!

  1. Oh no!! haha! So sorry about the black eye! AND about the allergies (I've been SUFFERING as well. driving me crazy), fever, and cold! NO fun! Hope you feel better soon!!

  2. NOLA is amazing! You need to go eat at Port of Call for the best burger and baked potato you will ever eat. Unless you dont like that bc its all they have lol. And of course cafe du monde for beignets! So good. Pat O'Brians for the famous hurricane drink:-)My fiance is from there if you need more suggestions! Its a blast.

  3. 1. I love green giant vegetable medley

    2. did you know my fiance is a HUGE Texas A&M fan? he grew up outside of Houston, so we have a lot of Aggie stuff. he was a crabby boy saturday afternoon...but not as bad as me (my team lost 59-0, yup)

    3. i've had a brutal allergy/cold combo the last week and i'm soooo over it!

    i hope you feel better, and that eye makes you look real thug. good work.

  4. I hear ping pong is like hockey lol Quite dangerous!?!? LOL LOL Hope the swelling goes down!

  5. Wow, no kidding about all the blackeyes! Kinda weird... Glad you're okay though!! I've never been to New Orleans so I can't offer much help there. However, I want to go so once you get back, I can't wait to read all about it! :)

  6. I think you look better than anyone I've ever seen with a black eye. ;)

    Better call NOLA and let them know you're coming. You're a handful from what I read. Ha!

    I went there as a little girl...hence...I have nothing of value to add for suggestions. Just sarcasm.

    Have fuuuuuun!

  7. Sounds like you had a great weekend! And I feel yeah on the allergies, they always get me this time of year too!

  8. You poor things, that looks like it would hurt so much!

  9. I can speak from experience about black eyes - Benefit Lemon Aid covers the black eyes magically. I gave myself a black eye my senior year of high school, a few days before prom (dismounting from the beam), and I needed to cover it up quickly and well. Any yellow concealer will work.

    I'm with you on the fighting the cold and giving up your weekends to football. I made the mistake of doing a Fantasy Football league with my husband and my parents. I'm currently in last. Haven't won a game. My goal, I think, is NOT to win any games. :)

  10. My poor Aggies :( I'm just glad we're good at Basketball or life would be a little bit more disappointing here in Logan, Utah.

  11. Ouch- Your poor eye! Sounds like you had a blast with you friends and this weekend is going to be awesome too! :)

  12. I was in Austin this weekend and seriously had the WORST allergy attack I've had in over a year Saturday night! It kicked my a$$ and I felt like poop all day Sunday because of it. I totally feel your pain! But the black eye? I have no words! LOL!!!

  13. only you could have a black eye and still look gorgeous. unfair.

  16. I seriously need to move to your town so we can be friends since I don't really live near anyone that I am friends with. booooooo..

  20. Hoping you and your black eye are feeling better soon...only you however can look adorable with a black eye, for real! :) I hear you on the allergies in Austin...while I was there they bothered me by about day 3 and I thought I was getting sick, but it was just an allergy...something definitely in the air there! Sending smiles your way! Have fun in New Orleans!!!

  23. you so equal me. seriously. My ring debacle that I blogged about today? Kinda like your ping pong paddle thingy. Except I was drinking WAY too much and had a hangover from hell the next day and all you had was a black eye.

    ok totally not making light of your black eye. I'm still just pissed I partied so much and now I STILL feel like crap.

    anyway, that picture of you holding the phone making the kissing face is GORGEOUS. You are gorgeous. You have fantastic hair. and you seem nice ;)

    DDHP is a very lucky guy!! and you tell him I said that!
