An oh so Stylish weekend.

Remind me to never stay up until 3:30 again (unless it's in Vegas, then it's acceptable). Anyhoozits, I had quite the busy and fun weekend so of course I have to share...

Friday: Woke up bright and early and headed to LAX to catch my flight to Seattle with Justine and Catherine from Brand About Town.

such a pretty city.

As soon as we landed we were on our way to Nintendo headquarters. Basically that place is awesome with DSi's and Wiis and all sorts of games to play. We got a short briefing on Style Savvy (which I didn't really need because it's sad how much I know about this game) and then we were on our way and checked into our hotel downtown. Basically I love staying downtown in any city because you can walk so many places (and the view of the water nearby helped also).

Eventually we walked to dinner where we saw this gem:

i'm so easily amused.

Once we got to dinner we had a great time chatting it up, eating some delicious French cuisine and just hanging out. Basically we had an earlyish night since we knew Saturday would be a long day but it was fun to have some time to myself in my room and just relax a bit.

Saturday: Slept in a bit, had some Starbucks (because hello I was in Seattle) and before I knew it we were on our way. Like I said on Friday I went to Seattle to help Justine and Catherine with a luncheon sponsored by Nintendo Style Savvy for a group of girls from the mentor program Powerful Voices.

It was so much fun hanging out with the girls and showing them the game and just listening to them talk and just having fun. On top of a delicious lunch we also got to meet celebrity stylist, Jen Rade, and hear her share her life story.

me and Jen, seriously she's so cool.

Basically Jen was awesome. It was so cool to hear her talk about stories from working on hip hop videos with Tupac and Snoop and Usher to working with Angelina Jolie now to going to Michael Jackson's last rehearsal for This Is It and all sorts of amazing things. She had such a great message too it was just inspiring.

Once the lunch was over we were on our way back to the aiport and back home. Matt and my friend AJ picked me up and we headed on over to Matt's mom's house to hang out for the night. Pretty much the night consisted of lots of dirty jokes, alcohol, some BBQ, more alcohol and ridiculous conversation until three thirty in the morning. It was a little nuts. I haven't stayed up that late in so long but man was it fun.

Sunday: Yeah I'm not meant to stay up that late drinking any more. Ask the twelve or so people I decided to drunk text (seriously now that I have so many texts I don't know what to do with them, haha) and the friends that saw me Saturday and Sunday. Oh and the family that made fun of me in my hangoverness, haha. Basically Sunday was spent having a delicious breakfast, ordering our wedding invitations, lounging on the couch, walking at the Rose Bowl (how I managed to do that and not die is beyond me), going to my cousin's birthday party and coming home to watch Boondock Saints II. Basically a very hungiover, unproductive (well minus the invite ordering) and ridiculous day. So is it Friday yet?

And how was your weekend?

happy monday!

Your Seattle trip sounds awesome!

And the drunk texts were hilarious. I love that you followed up the first with another that said: P.S. I am not sober.

I can't wait to seeeeeee you.

I love a good quick trip. Although it is exhausting in the end.

sounds like a great time.

I really loved your drunk texts... too bad we have this silly 3 hour time difference between us, and I didnt get it until the next morning.

I am so glad they are hosting these luncheons for young girls. I am such a huge fan of Style Savvy- and I feel like if i experienced it as a younger girl, i would have taken on the fashion world by now! (or been the next Mugato from Zoolander) tehehe. Great recap!
