Digital Graffiti

Well it seems like the weekend just flew by. They (whoever they are …) always say “Time flies when you are having fun.” And, that it did.

Friday night was reserved for family. The Diva demanded we have pizza for dinner and I certainly was not going to argue with her. No cooking for me… umm WIN! However, I have discovered Angry Orchard Beer and much to the demise of my diet, I adore it. I mean, it’s basically adult apple juice. Apple juice, my friend is so good; apple juice containing alcohol even better. It does have a downside, though. In no time flat you have drank six. So not good for the waist line or the fact that I am so a light-weight, when it comes to drinking. If you see it and you are not the biggest beer fan, you should try it. I like the blue and the green. And, if you buy it and don’t care for it, it makes a great marinade for cooking a pork roast in the crock pot.

As I said in an earlier post, Saturday was Digital Graffiti time and we all know a good time is to be had while there.

Off and running the Diva was excited to stay for the 1st time with Uncle Ricky and Aunt Wendy. They are building a house and living in a small camper, so she said she was camping with all the necessities of MeMe’s house next door. But since Baby C was staying there as well she knew she would have a good time. I really wanted to have straight hair but the humidity level outside was “worse than hell” and torturing my hair into submission was not high on my list of things to do, so natural waves it was.

Kevin who stayed on my ass… I mean reminded me that we were to meet Jason (a total cutie who happens to be my cousin and a successful attorney… YO) at 4pm, managed to get me out of the house on time. Yes, this is one of the things I struggle with. Grabbing him, our next stop was Seaside, where we grabbed Baby C’s parents AKA Ches and Makenzie. It’s their 2 year anniversary and they wanted to have some dinner somewhere… We chose The Roof at 723 Whiskey Bravo. Dinner was so good. I ate entirely too much.

Finally making our way to Alys Beach, it was red carpet time. What Princess does not adore walking the red carpet?

Looking Good Carley!!
2 redheaded Kelli's ... scary huh. Yes we are both Princess'

Then off to the show. As usual it was fun. I love seeing all the different art shows on the white walls.

Red Palm Trees are all the rage, ya know. 
Then we got into the act... Shantelle Martin had an interactive display that was astonishing! Here we are being part of the art.

The boys watching us being silly!

Finally we make our way to the pool and the VIP lounge. Cause every Princess belongs in VIP.

And no party would be complete without a trip to the Facetime Photobooth... Although Kevin was a little concerned that I may party entirely to much when the Photobooth guy knows you by name. Yes, he does know me and yes he said "Hey Kelli, how's it going it's been a week since I saw you." What! This Princess is FAMOUS. LOL

The best 2 dates any girl could have.
That's Cricket with the beer... Yes I said Cricket!
The gangs all here. 
All in all it was a pretty amazing night! Good friends, cold drinks, amazing art and fun times. XOXOXOXO

Just another week...

It's Wednesday and I have some doctors appointments and other assorted errands to take care of for me and the family so I took a day off from the office. It's early morning and I am still enjoying my coffee waiting for The Diva to wake up and Kevin to show back up. He is either having his oil changed or riding his BOTE board. He will be home before it's time to leave I am sure.

You may remember this post from last year: Rain & Digital Graffiti, well believe it or not it's time for that again. Wild huh? I really do love this event. It's so completely different and interesting and Alys Beach is perfect for it. So that is what I will be up to this weekend.
Isn't the entrance beautiful? 

As for the past week and weekend, more of the same. Beach of course, but then we realized The Diva desperately needed a new suit. The 2 she said she liked and we ordered them, they arrived and her words were "I hate them now." So back to Lands End they go and the torture began. After quite a few stores (Target, Dillards, Justice, Old Navy) we found something she liked at none other than Jc Penney. I knew it was meant to be when I saw the pink peace sign on it.
See that little peace sign! 
Of course I can't talk about last week with out mentioning Girls Night Out! Umm a-mazing! As always. The wonderful and talented ladies of Proffitt PR Whitney and Jessica!
Some of my favs! :) 

Absolute Silliness

kissy face
All in all a great week. Now off to Digital Graffiti tomorrow night. Update to come soon. :) Excited to not have rain in the forecast this year. :) FUN!  XOXOXOXO
