// sneak peek of my home office/guest room (see: #5)
1 >> We’re fine. When Isaac hit Lafayette, it was more like a tropical storm. We never even lost power. We spent the day watching Season 6 of Dexter, drinking wine, eating Oreos, and hanging out. It was nice because Michael and I rarely have time to just hang out with no agenda or schedule. I’m hoping and praying that everyone else who was in Isaac’s path fared okay, too. Thanks for the tweets/comments checking in on us!
2 >> One week from today, my friends Molly and Chelsea will be in Lafayette for a visit. DO YOU KNOW HOW EXCITED I AM? You can’t imagine, because I can hardly imagine it myself. On a scale of 1-10 of excitement, I’m an ELEVENTY BILLION. We’re going to spend the weekend discussing T&F (thoughts and feelings) and visiting all my new favorite Cajun haunts. Drive-thru daiquiri shacks (can you believe I actually haven’t had one yet? And I’ve been here 3 months?) and shrimp po’ boys, here we come!
3 >> I have something like 2,000+ photos on my iPhone. Who even does that? I’ve had it tell me that I have to delete some to be able to take any more. On several occasions. So I delete a few and then it happens again. I need to put them all on my computer, but I also need to delete a lot of them. Does anyone have a system or trick for this? Because basically, I haven’t done a photo wipe since I got this iPhone. A YEAR AGO.
4 >> I’ve always wanted to be the brave girl who can wear red lipstick with anything from a fancy dress to a tee-shirt and jeans. But it’s scary, am I right? The whole time, I’m worried that it’s smeared or it’s on my teeth or I’m not pulling off the look and I just look like a ridiculous hooker. But the other night, Michael and I went on a date, and I rocked the red. And loved it. I think it’ll be my new thing for fall/winter. Maybe.
5 >> Last weekend, I finally finished organizing/decorating my guest room/office. It’s very pink + vintage. I can’t wait to show you guys…but before I do that, I need to delete some photos off my iPhone. Or, you know, get a real camera. In fact, I’d love to get a camera and do a whole home tour, since I’ve worked hard to decorate my home this summer on basically zero budget (thrift stores and spray paint are my BFFs). I asked this on Twitter the other day, but does anyone have suggestions for a beginner DSLR? I’m thinking a Canon Rebel, but if someone else has an OMG ABSOLUTE FAVORITE MUST HAVE, let me know!
