the madewell event in 8

Tuesday, May 22

1 :: I had so much fun during the party that I didn't get any pictures until it was over. Which is a real bummer since the braid station, in all of its fishtail glory, deserved a shot or two. {I still consider a reverse braid to be super-advanced material so I was impressed}

2 :: My friend Lauren and I unintentionally showed up wearing matching shirts. I would say great minds think alike, but honestly my large dirty laundry pile decided my ensemble that night. Procrastination for the win. {Or lose. Depending on if we're pretending that matching is cool or not.}

3 :: Next time future life paths are being handed out, I'll take the one where I'm a DJ please. I mean honestly, could you BE cooler.

4 :: I'm pretty sure that Everett could have been my replacement at the party and no one would have minded one bit. You are so loved my little one.

5 :: My shoes were complete jerks.

6 :: At one point, I did in fact shake hands with someone with a wrapped taffy stuck to my palm. These are the secrets to success and professionalism.
 
7 :: YOU are just so wonderful and it was so great to meet and talk with all of you who came.

8 :: And to the lovely Madewell ladies who put it all together, your pinterest-ing knows no bounds. It looked beautiful.

and yet you still look fantastic! I know that awkward hand shake all too well -it's more awkward if you're about to buy something and it's money in there. Bet taffy pretty awkward too right enough!
