Some Scenes From The Weekend
yes, that's Millie's foot hanging out in the photo...nice.
beautiful handmade package given to me by the amazingly creative Rachel while at Alt. It was so stunning, I waited until I got home to open it...
After four full days of conversation and inspiration and learning at Alt Summit (I loved being part of a panel presentation with the amazing Victoria, Bri and Danielle), I was missing Bryan and the girlies fiercely, so once I landed on Saturday afternoon, we pretty much spent the rest of the weekend hunkering down and hanging out...
Audrey surprised me Sunday morning with breakfast in bed and a "coupon" (or in her words, a "cupon") for a family trip to the museum, which I promptly took her up on. Emboldened by the major stylistas at Alt (it was a sea of sartorial awesomeness friends, punctuated with red lips, bangs, and killer specs), I decided to smack on some red lipstick before our outing only to have the girlies beg me to take. it. off. in the car, as it made me look "too fancy and weird". After smudging it off with an errant baby wipe, Bryan looked over with a sort of relieved look on his face and confirmed that it did indeed make me look "all fancy and weird".*
Ahh, it's good to be home.
(* Which made me instantly think of my Alt roomie and dear friend Caitlin's story about her husband's hilarious response when she came out wearing a huge camel "cocoon" sweater one evening...Let's just say girls get dressed for other girls and leave it at that.)
p.s. -- Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the amazingly kind and supportive comments on my last post. You guys are truly the best readers and friends ever. More job details coming soon!
