Memorial Day fangover

I got absolutely accidentally-wasted yesterday...at a birthday party...for children. *facepalm* Thankfully, the kids had all gone home and all that remained were about six of us adults enjoying way too much sangria and Skinny Girl Margarita. I hadn't been that boozy in quite some time and the part I always hate is the next day, hearing the stories from Mikey of things I said and did. SO embarrassing. But, I did have yet another steamy vampire dream involving Bill Compton and Eric Northman - I tell Mikey about all of them and he's so over True Blood taking over my dream world. 
Funny thing is since we finished watching all four seasons of the show, we've both found ourselves wearing more black than usual. For instance, our dinner date last week...
^haha, blurry arm 
I went super crazy trying to do the wing or cat eye look with my liner; one wing is much longer than the other side and I didn't care to fix it. I'm ridiculously clueless when it comes to makeup. 
Oops, I guess Mikey didn't wear black on this particular night.
Dress: Ross (2010)//Cole Haan pumps via Nordstrom//Bag: Thrifted//50's glasses: Speakeasy Vintage

On a serious note: I hope y'all had a great day and before you go to bed, don't forget to remember thosewho aren't here to enjoy BBQs, Bud Lights, and family fun: those whose lives were lost fighting for our freedom. Thank you to each and every man and woman serving in our country's military, no matter what branch they've enlisted in. 
Alright, I'm gonna continue eating straight out of this gallon of Rocky Road ice cream. 
Goodnight y'all.

Love,
A proud Veteran.

    1. I love you too, girl! It doesn't matter that people do basic steps and spell things out for me, if I don't get it, I don't get it. And let's face it, I SO don't think I'll ever get makeup. I suck. But you can do more. Only because I miss seeing your face and hearing your voice.

    2. Thanks girl! Well at least we can put together one helluva girl, right? I've got the makeup, you've got the clothes!

  2. I wasn't in the best of moods this morning after getting a horrible hate email about my blog, and this post completely cheered me up! Your husband is super cute!

    1. Well, I'm sorry about that jerkweed, but hopefully you got my "you're super awesome" email. :) Once again, I'm glad this mindless post cheered you up. That makes my day!

  3. Haha, oh boy, steamy vampire dreams! I will admit I stopped watching the show because I always got self conscious over the fact that some one might walk in on one of their wild scenes and think I was watching bad stuff - eeep! I need to grow up. Or just not watch hbo at my parents, ANYWHO. Your outfit is awesome - those red pumps are perfect.

    Thank you, Mikey, and everyone else in the Military for serving our country and protecting our freedom :]

    1. Also - I know this is late getting back to you, but for my photo collage of my instagram pics I used photoshop. I think you may be able to do the same thing in Picasa which is a free (? - I think) photo editing program. I haven't used it myself, but I googled it and here is a tutorial http://support.google.com/picasa/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=19539 I think if you set the images up in a grid you should be good to go. Sorry I couldn't be more of a help. I am sure there is an app for it...I just don't know what it is.

    2. Hahaa!! I got a kick out of that top comment. Yeah, I certainly wouldn't want to watch this at my parents house...pretty awkward indeed! It is pretty porn-esque in lots of scenes but dammit, I just can't look away. Between studly, worth husband-ing up Bill and super sexy boy toy Eric, I am glued to that tube! Lol, I sound like such a perv. To be fair, this is one of the most 'grown up' shows I've ever watched. But yeah, enough about TB for one day. ;)
      Thank you, Allison for your sweet words about Mikey and I.
      And thank you for the heads up on Picasa! I didn't know they had a collage thingy; I've used them in the past and they didn't charge back then. HOpefully they're still a free app. I currently use Frametastic for my IG pics, but I wanted to see if there were other options. I thought I'd googled them all but forgot about Picasa. Thanks again!

    1. Thank you! I love the rockabilly style and music, but I'd never thought I embodied it or even had a day of looking like it, so thanks. I take it as a big time compliment :)

    1. :) Yay, I'm glad! Oh, don't even joke, I honestly think I could have been a vampire for sure. ;) I mean, I am a night owl (I hate mornings); I don't wear too much black, but I could be the new bubbly and colorful vamp; and I'm also a very um, passionate person. :) Yeah, being a vamp would rule.
      Thanks for the comment, Francesca! It made me laugh. :)

    1. LOL! I'd never gotten drunk at a child's bday party before, but I'm so glad the party had cleared out and at least everyone during the day saw me as the nice lady with the camera getting photos of everyone and playing with their kids in the pool....thennnn, I became the boozy child, so they should be forgiving of me. haha
      Thank you for your sweet words! ♥

    1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one. I hate sounding like a perv, but dangit, it's so hot! Grant should definitely sit in for at least season 5. I'm sure he'd like it! I mean, there's just perfect bodies all around and yes, the story line is pretty exciting. :)
      P.s. I love the word "randy" now. I'd actually never heard of it before. It's much less conspicuous sounding as others that could have been used. hehe

  12. You looked great for Memorial Day! I love the red pumps with this FAB LBD! I was stuck in the house all day due to this tropical storm Beryl that decided to pass on through wetting up everything. Glad you had a great time and yes those Skinny Girl Margaritas will sneak up on ya!

    1. Aw this actually wasn't the outfit I wore. This was from last week. I have a ton of Memorial Day photos to sort through and eventually will get them on the blog. I wore a colorful dress for that day :) But thank you, nonetheless for being a sweetie!
      And I'd heard about the storms going through. I'm glad you're alright, more importantly. We just had some really heavy rain storms in the last two hours. They were magnificent!! But I'm a rain addict. :)

    1. It was, but I slept until the headaches went away and then had a loooong day on the couch. :) But I'd probably have done that anyway, haha.
      Thanks, girl!

  14. Hehehe, you are so cute :) Eric is perfection :D

  15. you are so clever with that title ;) I seem to have more Eric dreams after watching True Blood but I dont tell Kevin about them. Not that he would get jealous (I mean we are talking about a fictional character) but I just like to keep them to my own perverted self.

    1. lmao, I am not telling Mikey about any more of my vamp-dreams. They are becoming even more wildly inappropriate! And I can honestly say that it's so not my fault. I can't control what happens in my sleep state. Thank goodness I'm not the only pervert around here. You make me feel so much better, Amber. :)
