Thanksgiving Trip Teaser 2

More Thanksgiving photos. Click on the picture for the entire album. I don’t have any of the actual wedding just yet but hopefully soon, because I found a FANTASTIC dress the night before my flight $40 (I know! Shut up!) and I daresay I clean up well. Update: Pics!

While I was tweezing my brows the other night the image […]

Finally broke down and bought new shoelaces… …that didn’t fit. Bought new shoelaces again. Boots still sitting in corner, unlaced, laces still in original packaging. Pathetic.
