every once in a while

Every once in a while, life becomes a bit overwhelming. And then you blog about it.
Well, here is my "OMG-all-this-stuff-is-happening-at-the-same-time-and-I'm-totally-going-crazy-in-kind-of-a-good-way" blog post :)

As previously mentioned, I went to New York City for a wedding. It was a lot of fun and I am very glad I was able to make it to see a lot of my old friends, and hang out like idiots [just like old times!].
my friends were married on the rooftop of the Kimberly Hotel [by one of my old college friends!]
They're both foodies, so the spread was amazing :)
they had a photobooth with cardboard cutouts........of a photo I took - awesomesauce!

ok so while in NYC, I only made a few purchases at H&M....I actually did most of my shopping at the airport! haha There was this amazing store called Muji and then this dang machine...
I am not going to lie. I flew home with quite the hangover. It was so great to see Daniel and my parents again! I was able to hang out with my family on Mother's Day for a couple hours, but then I had to drive out to League practice.
Because........I made the official Houston League! I am houston roller derby FRESH MEAT.
If you are friends with me on facebook, you saw this photo the night I announced it:
I received the phonecall on my 2nd day in NYC...and depicted my excitement on a restaurant table.
As fresh meat, I am not on an official team yet. There is a 2 month probationary period, and then you are drafted. We shall see what happens :) Until then I will be practicing at least 3 times a week. Which means my thighs are going to look like amazing little drumsticks! :D
There was a slight issue with my derby name [similarities to another] so i dropped the "grr" and have been going by feisty. Kinda thinkin' about feistysaurus rox, though :)
I have attended 3 practices since my return [a few of us tried 2 in one night - yikes!] and am already learning SO much.

Other than work of course, and all of this, I am going crazy preparing for
Renegade Handmade in Austin!
I need to get back on track! All the April and May travels plus derbiness has been quite the distraction.
Anyway, I plan on catching up on a lot of blog reading, crafting, & social networking tonight. I feel so out of the loop!
high quality non-cellphone photos coming soon :)

  1. Oh I love weddings, and that photobooth idea is awesome! I just wish I had one to go to this year, but short of blackmailing/threatening people to get married, I don't have one to go to until next year. Sad face!

    And congrats on (almost) making the team, you go girl (I really sound so 90's right now, don't I haha)! There's no doubt in my mind you'll make the team!

    I'm glad *someone* posted something tonight, I've been up all night making post-its for part two of a body image thingy on my blog, and I really enjoyed reading on your blog as usual!

    xo
