What Every Girl Needs...

Y'all are going to be sick and tired of Mexico posts soon...sorry!

Anyway, my bestie came along to Mexico with us..she was in need of a vacation...and we had a vacation that was shaping up to be plenty of fun! She called herself a "wedding crasher", I called her a "bonus"...turns out, she ended up being more of my "personal assistant (attendant?)"!

I have since declared, every girl needs her own personal assistant for a wedding.

The plan was always that she was going to do my hair. She sorta rocks that way.

And, she didn't disappoint...I've gotta say, I had a Pintrest inspired vision, and she pretty much nailed it! (Unfortunately, these photos were taken AFTER much activity...and an epic, slobbery, Mama meltdown...)

Oh, WAIT! I found a couple that were "pre-meltdown"!!
(Forgive the grumpy face...the sun was in my eyes...I promise I wasn't grumpy!)

Nailed it to the point that I had a complete stranger, clad in a bikini, come up to me poolside before the wedding and ask to take pictures of my hair! From all sides.

Oh, but it didn't stop fact, the hair was just the beginning!

Turns out, on my way up to the bride's room, I tossed my camera bag over my shoulder and whacked out my neck/shoulder/back/something-or-other. By the time I made it to the room, I was in pain, and it only got worse as time went on. :(

I quickly asked T. if she would take pics with my camera for me...and then pawned off my bag on one person or another. Between the hubs, T. and my aunt, someone was massaging my shoulder, neck, back area after the wedding.

Enter, wedding pics. And a certain bridesmaid that was having a hard time turning her which my lovely assistant (attendant?) declared she'd run and grab me some ibuprofen! It was at this point that someone pointed out, "Wow...M. brought her own assistant!"

I seriously don't know what I would've done without her!

And all she wanted for payment?

Was a blogpost about her awesomeness...

And me? All paid up now. ;)

Thanks T.! You are the best assistant friend a girl could ever ask for!


  1. Gotta love a bestie! I'm in the middle of planning a trip with my 3 besties (since we were 7 years old) for our 40th birthdays this year. We'll all have to "assist" each other! :) Lucky women, we are, to have such wonderful best friends!

  2. Oh friends are the BEST...especially on assistants, er Attendants! LOL! The trip looks like it was divine. After your year, you deserved every minute!

  3. Your hair looks amazing! That girlfriend is talented. :) Sorry about your back/neck and hope it's much better now.

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!
