Gators and Derby

One week ago, the "B" Travel Team, Knock Outs, had a bout in Baton Rouge, Louisiana against Red Stick Roller Derby.
This may or may not sound redundant to you. While practicing my French [for next month's trip to Paris!] I realized that "Baton Rouge" means Red Stick. And I was not the only one who hadn't made the connection until then, either. Color me rouge embarrassed!

I rode with 5 other teammates in Kiki Mojo's suburban. And for being a car packed full of girls, it was a really fun ride! Kiki even made an alligator pit stop. :)
 The photo above is a much smaller gator than the one pictured [twice] below.

I don't have any photographs from the bout, but hopefully I can get my hands on some. This one below is from right after our WIN. I posted it around the webs.
We were all starving and ate up the Beaver Bread [a real tasty banana bread that Beaver makes for all the games!].

This Insta-Week is brought to you by TRANSPORTATION. I begin with Louisiana and end with Florida. All the in-betweens are home - AKA Texas. :)

Nerdy Thirty Birthday Party.
But I kind of lied, because the photos above are in the T-X. :)

Roadtrip to Baton Rouge for a Houston Roller Derby KnockOuts bout!
 While on said roadtrip, we stopped to pet some baby gators. <3

Between June 19th and June 27th I skated 8 of 9 days. Kind of a record for me.
[had to get some make ups in!]

 D and I spent some quality time together before my departure to Miami. Have you seen Moonrise Kingdom? It's a pretty sweet flick by the folks that brought you The Royal Tenenbaums.
 And then of course there is the day I visited Brandi for a new 'do. :)

My Buster hath returned!
The parental units "borrow" her from time to time. :)

 Oh HAIII - summer vacay to see my family in Miamaaai. <3

See? Bright colored house[s] and milk for my many, many, cafe con leches.

have a lovely weekend!

Photo an Hour

Last week I posted a Photo an Hour that I wasn't too happy with. I used my "purse camera," so the photos weren't as high in quality as I prefer, AND the day was pretty atypical. I spent most of that day deep cleaning the house, which honestly, occurs very rarely. Ha!

Although these photos are from last Thursday, because it's summer break, they are more like a typical weekend day for me. :)

what i wore...with my curls

Yesterday I got my hairs did by the lovely Brandi Lisenbe. ;-)
[Many of y'all may already know the Bueno Bueno sisters.]

Daniel and I went to Baby Barnaby's for some breakfast afterwards. It was grand. :) But a couple hours later, my Civic got a flat and I was forced to roam the aisles of Walmart until the car was in fully functioning condition. My freshly styled hairs lasted through all that heat and sweat, but not through roller derby practice! At least I got to sport my new locks for a few hours. <3
Cardigan: Uncle's Shop
Shoes: Greece Travels

Sunglasses [as seen in top photo]: Charming Charlie
Shorts [yes, they are there!]: H&M
