Warning: The picture below is not me…just in case you can’t tell. That is Kendi. Mrs. Everyday, if you will. Without her blog, I wouldn’t be able to get dressed in the morning. I would just have to go to work naked, and nobody likes that. Trust me.
I didn’t get dressed this morning thinking, “What Would Kendi Wear?” Cause that would be weird. I did, however, don this ensemble and think to myself, “Kendi would totally wear this!” And then I had a little conversation with her in my head. I think it’s love, ya’ll.
So my free glasses just came in and I’m not sure whether I should keep them or not. I actually really like how quirky they are and feel like they are right up my alley, but at the same time I feel like they may take my nerdy-ness to the extreme. I may even look like an idiot. Luckily, I can exchange without a hitch, should I feel the need. What do you think?
Thanks for your comments, ladies. I’ve decided to exchange them for these:
If this pair doesn’t pull off the look I’m going for, then I can return them for a full refund. All in all, CoastalContacts.com has been a pleasure to work with.
I have added this little update to my blog post because a good friend brought it to my attention that perhaps something should be done on your end due to the fact that we had to wait 6 months for the CORRECT furniture order. Yes, we love it, but for the price we paid for custom-made furniture, your customers shouldn’t have to deal with incorrect orders, or wait a whopping 6 months when the original order was supposed to arrive in only 30 days. Your hard-working customers also should not learn about extra fees and taxes the day before a delivery is supposed to take place. I appreciate the fact that you allowed us to keep the incorrect furniture while we waited, but did not enjoy our salesperson telling me that I ordered it wrong, especially when I showed that person a picture showing exactly how I would like the chaise arranged. What can you do make this a better situation for all parties involved?
Six months after originally ordering our living room furniture, it is finally here. They said it would take 30 days. At the 2-month mark, we got our stuff but it was wrong. It took another 4 months to get the right stuff (insert New Kids song here).
But I’m not complaining, because I’m a happy camper now. We love our new living room, and so does Sammie.
I consider my decorating style to be “comfy contemporary.” I love clean, smooth lines and solid colors, but with comfy pillows, lots of blankets, and sentimental reminders all around. The living room is where we spend our time together and I wanted it to be perfect for us. I think we succeeded.
Hey ya’ll! As you saw from my vacation video, we had an excellent time. You also may have noticed that we spent a good amount of time at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! I want to take the time to explain that glorious place to you, and the goodies that I walked away with. Good times!
When you first walk in, the Hogwarts Express is immediately on your right, along with the conductor, who patiently waits while everyone and their bestest friends take pictures with him. He was very British, but when I asked him where he was from he simply said, “Hogsmead!” Of course.
Hogsmead is gorgeous and full of all of the wonderful things we’ve come to know and love about the little town: The Hog’s Head, The Three Broomsticks, Honeydukes, Dervish & Banges, Butterbeer, pumpkin juice and so much more. I loved all of the details, including the crooked chimneys of all of the shops.
I didn’t get a chance to go into Dervish & Banges, which is where you can buy wands, because the line was way too long. From what I heard, you go in there and play with wands and the wand chooses you. Pretty neat, but I didn’t plan on buying a wand anyway. I did go into Honeydukes and purchase some Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, which are absolutely legit. I swear I got a lettuce flavored bean yesterday. Yuck. I also purchased some pumpkin juice, which is really apple juice with pumpkin puree. It was okay, but it was a hot day and all I really wanted was water…so I tossed it.
There is one ride in Hogsmead called the Dragon Challenge, which was really fun! Its one of those feet-hanging-down roller coasters that goes upside down and all around. My kind of ride.
Then you get to Hogwarts. You actually go IN to Hogwarts. So effing neat. I didn’t enjoy all of the pushy people, but I loved going in and seeing moving and talking pictures and even the sorting hat, which was talking up a storm. Unfortunately, it was so dark in the castle that I couldn’t get much footage. I even filmed the entire ride, but nothing showed up.
Speaking of the ride, I was VERY impressed, and so was The Hubs, which is remarkable, since he hates how obsessed I am with HP and refuses to watch a single HP movie. The ride was part virtual reality, part real. I can’t give away any more than that. Just go see for yourself.
Finally, I walked away with the one thing I really wanted – The Marauders Map. If you don’t know what that is, I feel sorry for you. I was so excited about it that I allowed The Hubs to record the following video, which shows me without makeup and with unwashed-just-got-out-of-bed hair. If you watch this video, I feel sorry for you.
The Davis’ Family Vacation has officially come to an end, and I couldn’t be happier. We had an amazing time, but nothing beats the comfort of my own bed and the water pressure of my own shower. Its the little things, people.
We weren’t the only ones who escaped Mardi Gras madness to go see Mickey. There were more Louisiana and Alabama people in Orlando than I would like to admit. Sidenote: why would you escape Mardi Gras just to flaunt the hell out of it at Disney? Not necessary.
I have a gift for you! You KNOW I had to make a video of our escapades, so here it is in all of it’s glory. Enjoy!
Happy Mardi Gras, everybody! We’re skipping town while the craziest of the festivities take place. We’re going to The Most Magical Place on Earth. That may be Disney’s Magical Kingdom’s slogan, but I’m pretty sure it will be said all next week. Four Disney parks and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I hope The Hubs is prepared to be a babysitter, because I’m going to be a squealing little girl the entire time.
Ladies and…ladies, this is my last 30×30 post. I know, I’m a quitter. I honestly have no shame and don’t care what anyone thinks, but I do feel the need to tell you why I quit. I quit because I learned my lesson. I have learned how to look at all pieces of my wardrobe with remixer eyes and I have learned that I need a lot more color in my style. So when I go shopping from now on, I’m going to try to steer clear of navy, black and gray and gravitate towards yellow, coral and whatever else might tickle my fancy.
Mardi Gras is here in full force on the gulf coast, so here are a couple of videos to show you how we do!
