Golden Girl

I’m excited for today cause it happens to be my besties Birthday! As per tradition we’ll be spending the evening sipping on some cocktails hanging with her family and eating some wonderful italian dish.

My birds birthdays always remind me of how happy and fortunate I am to have these Golden Girls in my life. I reflect back on all the silly sh*t we have done over the years, how many tears we’ve shed together, how often we laugh out loud and the things we do to help each other, it’s pretty amazing.

Today I’m celebrating Chantelles 30 something! Cheers to a wonderful best friend, a spiritual soul and native queen (credits to K Dog for that one).

Things I LOVE about this girl:

I trick her – I ask her if she’s like to grab a Starbucks, get her in the car then say ” oh sh*t do you mind if we stop at the mall quick? I need to grab something?” 18 years later, she’s still my friend.

I’m Dramatic – I over-dramatize everything, my stories, my wardrobe, if my coffee is made incorrectly? – but she stands by everything I say, even if she is embarrassed.

 Pocahontas vs  Blair Waldorf -she likes moccasins, I like heels. She likes camping, I like glamping. She likes beer, I like wine… so different, yet so the similar in nature.

Her quirky Humor – her most recent Facebook posts are along the lines of  ” I know I’m getting old when I’m asking for wrinkle cream and an electric cigarette for my Birthday”.. always makes me smile.

Cheers to amazing, extraordinary friends!

I would be the one on the left wearing a skirt to play outside in, she’s the tomboy..of course!

She’d get too tired of walking so I’d have to carry her….

What she’d wear to a party….

What I’d wear to a party….

Well said…

Happy Birthday to my Golden Girl…

‘Packing Light’

This evening we are setting off for a weekend away, a large group of us are heading to a waterfront music festival Saturday afternoon than finishing the evening fire side at my sisters compound.  I plan to relax, get a little silly and end my weeklong bout of sobriety (In fact I think I just did writing this post). I like to detox pre and post mini vacations!

I’m not a campy, outdoor festival kinda gal (please refer to Glamping post)- however I love my friends and family and I understand sometimes you just gots to take one for the team (as they must when I army them to read my blog). I’m sure it will be a blast and a thorough abuse of malted barley.

I started packing early this week because I’m an extreme Type A. Obviously, I need to pare down the number of sandals I need, throw in a boho dress or two so I don’t look out-of-place, and add some other necessary accessories.

I daydreamed of a festival look that is simultaneously fresh and functional but a little hippy chick…here’s what inspired my packing:

Fantastic use of a scarf

Cute. cute. cute – with jean shorts?

I usually like to dance on tables – but after a bus ride, 9h in the sun and plenty of beer you may just  find me dancing on the ground?

I’m feelin this?

I love costume parties…for me Saturday will be just another day to wear something fun and non – workie (yup that’s a made up term)!

I’m off, I have to go downsize my weekend bag, apparently I’m not allowed to bring a suitcase? I still haven’t mastered ‘packing light’?

Happy Friday
