My life in photos

 Last Friday, JP and I walked around the Georgetown waterfront, where a bunch of local artists presented works around a fountain.  This one was my favorite: 3D koi with fun waves.  Thank goodness fish aren't usually this big!
 We were invited to join some friends at the VIP tent at a charity polo match on Saturday; I put on my best white polka-dots (Pretty Woman, anyone?), and sunglassed up.  It was such a departure from the norm for us!  One of the players was an Outback Steakhouse co-founder, so we had bloomin' onions and shrimp on the barbie.  Oh, and there was an entire bar devoted to mint juleps.  Did I mention that Maker's Mark was also a sponsor?
 John Walsh, host of America's Most Wanted, was one of the players, and came around to shake everyone's hand around the field.  It was hard to take him too seriously when his uniform had baby pink stripes on the side. 
During the divot-stomping, an ice cream truck was brought onto the field!  Free chocolate eclairs for everyone!
 All in all, we had a good time. 
 After a long run on Sunday, we came home, showered, and had a baguette with a bazillion toppings: fig butter, olive tapenade, COOKIE BUTTER!, and peach butter.  Holy bananas, it was delicious.
 I'm aways so happy when I can finish a crossword.  Also, the one word I really messed up was 'blog.'  Irony?
 We hung up a salon wall of wedding photos and special small art (it includes a postcard from St. Augustine from my mom, and a homemade postcard from Haley from several years ago).  Looking at them during breakfast makes me smile myself silly. 
Wearing my new shoes today!  I really should have broken them in before a full day at work, but, as my favorite post mistress said, "Strut on, girl!" Tee: Gap, Skirt: J.Crew, heels: Shoemint.


  1. Yes, the good life!! Polo matches, chocolate eclairs, cheetah shoes -- and on top of all that, a handsome husband kissing your cheek!!!

  2. Love, love, love the salon wall. So glad that long ago painting of the fort made the cut - talk about irony! It certainly looked like a fun week - did you take part in the divot stomping?
    Love, M

  3. Omg! You are so beautiful! Love the cheetah shoe ensemble. Not gonna lie--I'm going to miss your full-on outfit posts.
