My Weekend Recount: I’m In Love With Myself And I Have The Pictures To Prove It

This past weekend, my sweetheart, Mikki invited us to her mom’s 50th birthday. I was really giddy when I got the invitation because it had been soooooo long since I went out. I’m not the girl who likes going out every week or even every month, but every now and then, a girl just wants to dress up and go out. So I did not care that it was a 50th birthday, and I did not care who would be there. I just wanted to get doll’d up and go out. And because it had been so long since I went out, it had also been so long since I took pictures. I know Mikki’s mom was the celebrant, but Mikki looked so gorgeous! Sorry, I don’t have a picture of her. I was busy taking pictures of myself.

My 6 years of being anonymous has really done a number on me because now I almost don’t know how to post pictures of myself online. And this crazy because of how much I actually love taking pictures of myself. I’m vain. I LOVE looking at myself. I drive with my overhead mirror down because I enjoying admiring myself, even while driving. Anyway, I’ll try to let my blog match my enthusiasm for my own self. What manner of love shall we call this?

I think I thought I was a bad ass in this picture.

Blowing this bubble made me feel like a total bad ass. I was definitely feeling myself.


Love these shoes. Got them from Bakers years ago. Wore them like 3 or 4 times

Oh, you know what else made me hella excited about going out? My red lipstick! Believe it or not, but this is the first time in my life that I have ever bought and used a red lipstick. I always thought that a red lipstick would not look good on me, so I just never tried. Wonder where I got that idea. So on Friday, Igwe and I had gone to the mall, and while I was there, I remembered that I had decided to try a red lipstick. I’ll put up a separate post about my new lippy. Looovvveee!

I’ve been so busy talking about myself that I didn’t even talk about the party. Well, it was fun. Lots to eat and drink. Now, have I told you how much I love myself? Ha! I’m going to have another post for Easter Sunday (with pictures) cause this one is already kind of picture-heavy.

So, this is my partial weekend recount. How was your weekend, my Sweet Potatoes?
