i miss you. you miss me. it's time to catch up a little.

gahhhh, to say i miss you all is a gross understatement.  work and life in general have been a whirlwind.  since work is ultra unexciting for those of you not interesting in politics and environmental sustainability, let's get personal.

- i had a huge work even last week that consumed my life for a good solid 72 hours.  the event was a great success, so it paid off.  getting a mani-pedi and massage afterward was nice, too.

- i spent the weekend in austin (my fave city in texas) at a sorority sister's wedding.  she got married at this awesome venue that specializes in serving only organic food.  totally up my alley.  it was great getting to see and catch up with old sorority sisters and friends.  i forgot my camera (something i nevvvvver do), but fortunately they had a photobooth which quasi and i had tons of fun in.  i'll try to scan the photobooth pics and post them soon.

ZTA - only the best wear a crown!

clearly, i missed the "solid-colored dress" memo.


- i'm headed to the lake on friday for a company "team retreat."  should be interesting...

- then on sunday, i leave for church camp for... get ready for it... A WHOLE WEEK.  i'm going as a camp sponsor for a whole week in the hill-country-middle-of-nowhere-texas-with-no-access-to-cell-phone-service-or-internet for a sold week.  crazy, i know.

** don't forget - CSN stores giveaway ends tomorrow!! **

I think you look smashing in your non-solid-dress so don't you worry!! And the brides dress is gorgeous :)
Have fun at your company "team retreat..." I am not sure if that's a fun or ummm torture ;)
And a WHOLE WEEK?! You're crazy lady... enjoy the camp! It will be fun I am sure.
And then get back here and blog... or else...

You are all so pretty in that wedding pic! The bride's dress is amazing!

That brides dress is absolutely stunning! And you look adorable in your fun printed dress!

Half my family were ZTA's.. Great group of girls!

Casa de Luz by chance??? I love those kind of places.

You look gorge, of course!

Enjoy your time off....

Shelley said...

Busy bee! We will be here when you get back! Have fun!

JUST ME said...

I can't really do church anyway, but ALL church, ALL THE TIME, without television?

You are truly doing your part for the Lord, my friend.

Bathwater said...

You know... I remember following this link for a reason... but it escapes me now. Must be the one that stands out in the crowd of solid color.

Silver Strands said...

A week? A week. Really.

Haley is going to be very angry and NOT show you how well she snaps OR how well she sings California Gurls.

I love your dress and I like that it's patterned! You rock it girl.

I think that's awesome you're going to be a camp sponsor. I can't wait to hear all about it.

I also look forward to the photo booth pictures that is one thing I'd love to have @ my wedding.

Kristin said...

I like how you stand out in your floral frock! And the bride's gown is stunning!

Meagan@Megs7827 said...

Seriously! I'm glad you checked in! I was going to say! Where have you been! Cute pics, I had to focus on the picture and realized some of the dresses were bridesmaid dresses. But yeah I hate when I don't get the memo. But you look adorable!

ScoMan said...

I always wanted to do some sort of team retreat thing for work. It might help, it might stop the bitching.

Or people might seperate into teams and then try to hunt and kill each other.

I guess that's why I want to do the team retreat. I'm curious to see what happens.

blueviolet said...

You look so pretty. Life does have a way of keeping us busy, huh? :)

Brittany said...

I was just thinking about yout the other day! Even though you missed the memo on the solid dress thing, your dress is still so pretty! Glad you had a good time there. Try and have fun at the camp!

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

I love your dress! :)
Church camp...I used to think a week at church camp was fun...but in this day and age, not so sure. I hope you have fun though and enjoy the break from technology! :)

MiMi said...

What do you do at church camp for a week? Is it for kids or what...? I'm interested, I must know now. Tell.me.
Haha!
Okay, in all seriousness, you and your sorority sisters, and the bride...GORGEOUS. I love her dress. And I usually don't like dresses like that, but she looks beautiful!!!

A few comments:

1) Bride's dress is fabulous!

2) Your dress is fun, too, really like the print! And cute shoes!

3) Those are DELTA fingers?!!
Don't make me challenge you to a sorority finger pose showdown. I would win (now I am talking big).

4) Enjoy middle-of-nowhere trip. I hope you will have indoor plumbing. Drinking on a deck is my idea of outdoor/roughing it, so I am impressed/a little worried. In that order ... Enjoy.

Only organic food? How fabulous!

Krista said...

Clearly you got the memo that said, "Please add some spunk and sass!!" You killed it (however, I do love the bridesmaid dresses, but don't tell them)

Clemson Girl said...

It may not be a solid color, but I still think your dress is super cute!

SBG said...

aww! weddings! :)

I didn't know you are ZTA!! My sister was ZTA at UT knoxville!
