top 2 tuesday, giveaways, and if i am dead tomorrow, this is why...

so, when we have trouble making water onboard the ship (reminiscent of the whole "water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink" thing), they'll shut off hot water so people take faster showers.  i put off washing my hair as long as i could, but i finally had to and honestly, it was too freaking cold to get back in and rinse out my conditioner, so if y'all just check back in a couple of days i'll be able to tell you whether there really is a difference between leaving in Redken All Soft Heavy Cream for five minutes or two whole days.  i'm hoping i end up with incredible, super soft model hair.  more likely it'll just be kind of dull and dirty looking.  oh well, can't win 'em all. 

...annnnd i came back to finish this entry this afternoon, and there is no more water available on board.  four diet cokes later, i'm pretty sure i'm getting more dehydrated, not less.  unfortunately, i may or may not have eaten half a slice of cheesecake at dinner (what?! these are stressful times!) so i have to do jillian michaels again.  

so.
if i die tonight of dehydration, just know that i loved you all, my blog friends, and more importantly, that i was trying to burn that sinful cheesecake right off my not-so bikini ready hips.  death before dishonor, right?

top 2 tuesday a la jimmy choos and a baby, too:
top two dream vacations:
all expenses paid resort -
my fam always does celebrity cruises, which are amazing, but i'd like to switch it up a little
greek island cruise - 
i went to italy and greece for vacation when i was younger, spent a summer a few years back studying in southern france, and have now been out and about in the middle east...i may have a bit of the travel bug, but i am not really the 'real' bugs and camping type.  so maybe a resort in the greek islands? greek island cruise? basically anywhere surrounded by those beautiful blue domes:


perfect place to sport these Lilly Pulitzer McKims I found on sale (only $91!) at zappos:
here are some amaaaaazing giveaways that y'all should check out:
kristen @ kristen's palace's cookbook giveaway!
and thank you so much to Shopaholic in Alabama - I won her Mardi Gras giveaway!!
(the first giveaway I've ever won!)

 p. freaking. s.
i totally forgot - the most exciting that's happened all week - 
Kassim Osgood? gorgeous San Diego Chargers Player?


well...i see him tagged in this photo and he's wearing a pacific beach shore club drinking glove (and y'all know my love for pbsc) so i comment on it and say 'hot before, even hotter now with the pbsc glove!' or something like that, and,

he. 

writes.

me.

a message.

kassim osgood, professional NFL football player, takes the time out of his day to message me personally on facebook and say,
 "thank you prettylady"

so...y'all are all invited to the wedding.

Previously Plump... in progress said...

Bah ha ha ha - glad you're planning ahead - thanks for the invite :)

Refusing cheesecake would be like refusing a new pair of shoes - it just can't be done if you ask me. So you ahve to meet up with the beast so she can run you ragged - it was worth it, wasn't it?

Oh, yikes. No water... that's just balls. How long will you be without? hmmm, maybe wash your hair with diet coke? I think I read something somewhere about that...

Pink Champagne said...

No water - oh my goodness! At least you can live on the high of that sweet celebrity reply! ;) Hope they end the dehydration torture soon lovely!

Jessica said...

I cant wait to hear about the conditioner...maybe you found the trick for getting silky smooth hair! Hope you get water soon! Thanks for linking up I love your picks!

Juliana said...

Great blog post! Hope you are having a good week. Hey, I am doing a fun post over at my blog with rl friends and bloggy friends who have been told they look like a certain celeb and you were one of the bloggers that I thought of. I fyou ahve a picture send it to me. i will link your blog= more followers for you. It is going to be so much fun. We are going to give these celebs a run for their money!

Golden Stilettos said...

Cheers to smooth, soft model hair for you!

Redkin IS the best and no water = frizzy hair for me.. no matter what's in it :(

PinkPolkadotAA said...

I have forgotten to rinse conditioner out of my hair before. Having two screaming kids while you try to shower will do that! So cute about the wedding invite :)

Northern Girl Southern Living said...

Having no hot water is the absolute worst! Let me know how the conditioner works out haha! I've been deep conditioning my hair but I really don't see a huge difference.

Mr. and Mrs. Stoneking said...

sweet post! loved reading it, as always. That is shitty about the water, hopefully that doesn't go on for too long. Loved your top two choices. I want to go on an all expense paid cruise or vacation... I NEED one. Oh and you and Kassim would make beautiful babies.

p.s. cute new profile pic! I especially love the beverage of choice.

Amanda said...

hahahah! you crack me up!! That's hilarious. you are too cute.

Stephanie said...

Oh no! SAd about no water :(
On the up side your hair is probably more moisturized than ever! And who could blame you for having the cheesecake....I have been known to eat chocolate for meals :)
