girls gone wild.


hello, hello!
just a quick note before i hit the bed super early tonight...i am pulling out of town at 5 am in the morning. i am super excited about the weekend plan. i'm headed to new orleans to spend the weekend in general debauchery with my bffs. nathan's got shows all week/weekend, so he's outta town, so it's just me & my ladyfriends. i'm vending the widespread panic shows friday & saturday. we're staying at this sweet hotel on bourbon street. i will likely stay up way too late perusing bourbon street or undoubtedly winning millions in the casino. either way, it is sure to be uncontrollable fun. i will, obviously, photograph the whole weekend. i'll be back sunday afternoon to take presley trick or treating & to go to our good friend's annual halloween party. i will be back to report on the weekend after that.

under the weather.


happy friday, sunshines! (tries to muster up a smile)
hope this finds you guys doing well. me...not so much. it's been a tough week here at campebv. let me give you the rundown: so, two weeks ago, we vended an event in charleston. i had to pee. no where close by to pee. i pee in woods. i look down, only to realize i've decided to pee in poison ivy. i freak. i lose my balance (perhaps due to the cocktails consumed, or the oppressive heat. hard to say.). a poison ivy branch swipes across my butt as i fall. i freak again. i decide "it's probably ok" & i stop freaking.

oh how wrong i was.

so, 2 days later, i end up with poison ivy in a place you don't want poison ivy. (my butt, it could've been worse i guess, lol). miserable, i call the doctor and ask for something to clear it up. doc gives me steroids. i take them. wake up the next morning feeling horrible. i assume i've gotten sick on top of my poison ivy issues. (we have lotsa late nights when we travel. often, this ends up making me sick when we get home.)
all week, i get sicker & sicker. finally, thursday night, i end up with horrible, horrible, pain in my bad i can barely walk. i freak again. my mama comes to pick up presley & i go to hospital. as it turns out, i'm allergic to steroids. doc tells me to stay off my legs & take pain meds & wait for it to get out of my system. so i wait. and wait. i'm still is getting better, but still pretty much sucks. i suspect i will be healed in a day or two. i've been attempting to use mind control to cure myself, since i am supposed to be leaving next thursday for a vending trip/girl's only adventure weekend in new orleans. i'd really like to enjoy that with a fully functional body. hey, at least i don't have poison ivy on my butt anymore. the steroids cleared that up in like an hour, right before trying to take me down, apparently.

anyhow, so i've been stuck at home for awhile. i've jumped into all kinds of organizing & crafting projects. i also updated my lookbook & chictopia accounts. it would be awesome if you guys would check me out on those sites.

crafty tuesday.

hello & good evening to you.
we're up late tonight. it's one of the weird creative people things that i do from time to time...think about a new project, consider different options, then for no real reason other than i just get excited, i get started on it late night.
i've been wanting to do something nice for a good friend of mine, one of my ebv models. she's been doing a lot for me lately & i have wanted to show her some appreciation. i also have this massive pile of killer vintage fabrics that i've been dying to use. i wanted to do something that could incorporate a lot of different patterns into one project. i just started on it & i have a lot left to do, but i thought you guys may enjoy a little sneak peek at today's late night arts & crafts project. the owl pillow. i'm pretty sure i'm going to love it. and so will my sweet friend. (i even went wild & bought the ultra plush soft filling for it. this little hooter is gonna be super soft!)

charleston charm.

hey, hey, pretty ladies!
well, it's no secret that the boy & i love to travel. we hit the road for a variety of reasons...either on tour with his band or to any of the various musical events i vend throughout the year...bonnaroo, widespread panic shows, etc. we love road trips. we love to sing silly love songs, play car games (iphone madlibs is our new fave!) visit unique diners, landmarks, etc. we're also pretty notorious for ending up in anyway, we just got back from one of our new fave spots (& shhh...a city where we may or may not be kinda thinking about starting to plan a wedding!). we spent friday night in pendleton, south carolina. beitthemeans had a show there, so we had to stop to let my manfriend rock & roll. we spent the night, got up early & headed to charleston, south carolina for the widespread panic show. i vended all day & late into the evening, we stayed in a delightful little motel, slept in late the next morning, then headed downtown to spend all day sunday shopping, eating, & just enjoying each other's company. we had a lovely brunch at a place called poogan's porch. mimosas & baby spinach salad with caramelized onions, pecans, & goat cheese. delish. we spent the rest of the day shopping in the open market & finally headed to visit my laney & granddaddy about 6. (my grandparents, they live on seabrook island. it's a gorgeous, gorgeous place with an extremely romantic secluded beach. it's about 30 minutes from charleston.) we spent the night with my grandparents. we just adore them. my laney is an amazing cook & she always just spoils us rotten. we took a late night stroll on the beach, which may have been one of the most romantic spots we've ever been. i was pleased at how many times "possible wedding spot" came out of the boy's mouth during our stroll. we spent the night, slept in late, had brunch with my grandparents, and then hit the road headed for our next destination...nashville, tennessee for three nights. we didn't leave until late & definitely had quite the drive to tackle. we ended up getting distracted somewhere around gatlinburg & veered off track to visit an indian casino. lots of fun. i lost $20 in a slot machine & we left after about two hours because they didn't serve alcohol, and well, frankly, we like alcohol. we spent the night at a sweet little hotel in pigeon forge & woke up early the next morning to head onto to nashville. we ended up only spending 2 of the 3 nights in nashville because we took too long to get there, but they were two fun nights of vending at widespread panic. charlie daniels came out and played with panic. pretty cool. anyway, so we get home sometime thursday, got the kiddos back & spent the next few days just happy to be home with them....until we all got sick early this week, but that's a whole different story.
that was long. thanks for reading it. hope you like our pictures.
