Blog Sale!

While I've been away from the blogging world, I've been trying to clear out all my clutter (makeup, clothing, shoes, etc), hence this post. I am a pack rat and I've been slowing learning to "let go" of things. Those things today will be some shoes, I would have more to post but my dog, Rocky, has eaten countless pairs of shoes, or I have given them away. Depending if BagBorroworSteal.com buys my handbags, I may be posting those for sale here too (Coach, L.A.M.B., Dooney & Burke, Linea Pelle). Also, I have a ton of makeup to sell, most importantly the new stuff never opened, you'll be seeing that soon. --- For now, check out my shoes!

Surprise Birthday

for me! The hubs can't seem to stop surprising me, I truly had to hold back the tears. I walked into the party two days after my actual birthday expecting to meet up with the hubs' cousins before heading out to dinner with my bro and his family. It was small and intimate, which I loved. I had people that mattered to me (and vice versa). There were a couple friends that couldn't make it and I was so sad to not see them, but life happens, right?! one was expecting a baby, sees life happens! Congrats, E!! 

Enough babbling, I could seriously go on and on and on...for example, I'm testing out new contacts and they suck! HD my butt...(purevision2) and I'm afraid nothing will really work for me, contacts aren't made in my prescription. When you get to a certain level of nearsightedness, they stop making the prescriptions in quarters (.25) so I'm wearing a -10 on my right eye versus the -9.75 I need and -9.5 I've been wearing previously. Glasses are much higher than -10, but they can make those stronger and more precisely than contacts. I h.a.t.e. glasses, been wearing them since 2nd grade and before I was diagnosed nearsighted, I was failed from 2nd grade (the first year) b/c I couldn't read...they thought I was unable to learn until I was given a mandatory eye exam my second year of 2nd grade and the nurse was astounded I was able to function at all 0_0. Ugh -- see, I can babble...smh (did I mention I was placed in ESOL too and my only language was English...I didn't learn Spanish until I was 14 years old!)

So here are the (few) shots of the amazing get together my hubs and ah-mazing and supportive friend, Rachel (not to mention so incredibly gorgeous and fashionable) planned for me!

I can't forget about my brother and his wife that took me out this day and kept this a secret so well! Thanks for the shopping spree at Sephora, those are always welcome ;-)

Out & About: DC

Hey beautiful people! I am back with a new post ( so sad ). I haven't been posting b/c my injury took much longer to heal to a point where I could type outside of work.

feel free to take a look at the pictures from the Procession for the Lord of Miracles (Jesus) of Washington, DC & my FOTD! By the way, for those who know I'm not catholic; I attend this every year for my husband (he is Catholic) and it means a great deal to him and I respect that.

the ratablo weighs 8,500 pounds (~2 tons) and is carried by 32 men that must rock side to side, take breaks and switch out men to prevent an accident. it is considered an honor to carry it.
