wrappin it up........with pictures!

Happy Monday y'all!
What crazy weather we are having here!
It has been 900 + degrees for the last week and then today we wake up to grey skies and drizzle.
Hello Autumn, nice to finally see you!
Of course I was dressed appropriately in a tank, cardigan and gladiator sandals.
This weekend was pretty rad though.
Friday couldn't end fast enough as I needed to get home and bake somebody happy.
My dear friend LaShaunda had a birthday on Friday and we were going out to celebrate her born day.
Earlier in the week her husband had asked if I would make cupcakes for her for the party.
Of course I said yes (she's amazing y'all!) not taking into consideration that I would be baking./ frosting and getting ready..........yeah. 
Multi-tasking Gemini at her finest......
I was kinda pooped so I took a little disco nap first then I whipped up some chocolatey goodness for my girl and get myself together to go out.
Drop off the kid & scoop up my brother-in-law all in one stop and head to the club to get our partay on!
Now I have to preface this by saying - my girl broke her ankle a few weeks back but she was determined to have a good time on her birthday and cut a rug!

working the boot

And boy did she!!
Thank goodness a sister was getting her hair done the next day cuz I sweated mine OUT!

getting our boogie on
 We boogied until well past 2am, then went back to our friends house for some early morning delicacies
(read: eggs, turkey bacon & rice <there were no grits>)
and reminisced about days/ times long gone as the dawn begin to take shape.
At about 4:45am we finally said goodbye and headed home.
Why do I continue to do that to myself?
I was draggin the next day and me & Sweet Pea had to be in Long Beach for 10am!!
But LaShaunda &Kevin have known Damon (my husband) for over 20 years.
Kevin & Damon met in elementary school I believe and at one point Babe even lived w/ Kevin's family!
They are beyond friends, more like brothers.
Hence Kevin calling me "Sis" all day long.
They have always been champions of our relationship and I love them both like they are my brother and sister.
LaShaunda and I pretty much hit it off from the moment we met, we are both quite similar yet complete and total opposite.
She is a GREAT friend, wonderful mother and wife and all around kick ass chick.
I feel so blessed to have her in my life and call her my friend!

It was a magical evening spent with fabulous friends who are more like family.

The rest of the weekend was pretty chill and we mostly 'recovered' from our night out on Friday.......

What fun things were you up to this weekend?
